Question: Winnie (Alexis Bledel) runs away from her family and stays with Mae Tuck (Sissy Spacek) and the Tuck family. Winnie's family organise a search party to look for Winnie. Ben Kingsley (The Stranger/Man In Yellow Suit) also seeks Winnie and the Tucks, as they have secret information he wishes to acquire. Ben Kingsley finds Winnie and the Tucks. He threatens and intimidates them with a loaded revolver, even manhandling Winnie and holding the revolver barrel at Winnie's head. Sissy Spacek is standing behind Ben Kingsley. She hits him on the head with a rifle butt, killing him. At this point the search party converge on the Tucks' home. They see Sissy Spacek kill Ben Kingsley, so she is arrested for murder and sentenced to be hanged. Would any court find Sissy Spacek guilty of murder? She was obviously acting to defend her family and Winnie from an evil man with a loaded gun.Rob Halliday
Question: Why did Marty insist on shooting the firework at the werewolf? It took him far less time to turn the bike round and roar away than it did to light the rocket it and aim it.
Question: I wonder if someone can figure out what is Roman muttering to himself during the opening of the movie, or rather the opening of "3 weeks later" flashback. Close captions on Netflix say; "PC section...374.962.Burglary...in the first degree." Is that what he says? It does not appear to be a correct reference to the California Penal Code, and from what I heard later on, most other references to specific articles appear to be spot-on.Sammo
Question: Why did the guy in the engine room turn that big wheel before throwing the engines into reverse?
Question: What happened to the car radio when Truman was going to work and accidentally discovered someone was narrating his whole movements in advance?
Question: Up to this point in the series (and even in the next film), Michael is portrayed as a remorseless killer with no emotions. However, in this one, he takes his mask off at Jamie's request and even sheds a tear. He becomes enraged when Jamie tries to touch him, reverting back to the remorseless personality. What was the point of this sudden, and brief, display of emotion?dewinela
Question: Can someone please explain the swearing rules? I'm not American, so I don't know which channels have to follow the FCC rules. But I heard AMC said they could only use one F word per season. Why would they make that rule? If they have to follow the FCC rules, they can't say it at all. If they don't, they can say it as much as they want. And aside from Season 2, they all had more than one. How did they get away with it?MikeH
Question: In Season 1, Episode 23 "Skin of Evil", Tasha Yar was killed. But in the three following episodes, in the opening credits, Denise Crosby (Lt. Tasha Yar) is still listed. Am I correct in thinking that the producers decided to use the original opening credits for the remaining three episodes of the season, and changed them after Gates McFadden left the series for Season Two?Movie Nut
