Question: After Tony breaks the mirror, he hears the sound of horses running whenever he is about to experience bad luck. Is there a reason for the signal being horse sounds, i.e. a reference to a fairy tale or mythology?
Question: I've got two questions about the sentinels. 1) Why didn't Blink ever create portals to another country or maybe space every time the sentinels showed up, instead of just bringing the sentinels a tiny bit further, or is she only able to create a portal to somewhere she can see? 2) Would the sentinels have been able to adapt to Quicksilver's powers fast enough before he could escape from them into another room, or is there another way they could have been fast enough to kill him?THE GAMER NEXT DOOR
Question: When Young Joe is waiting in the field for Old Joe's arrival from the future, the sky is perfectly clear blue, except for a single, strange and very prominent zig-zag cloud that almost looks like a contrail of some sort. What is the significance of or explanation for that weird cloud?Charles Austin Miller
Question: There is a scene where Chris desperately prevents the cannibals from coming up into the watchtower. After a while, there is a silence. Then Carly radios for help in fear saying "Hello? Hello? ls anybody there? Can you hear us? Hello?" And then suddenly the radio moves quickly. It looked like psychic phenomenon. What was it?Bunch
Question: There is a scene where Chris and the other three discover the cannibals' cabin. When they hesitate to enter the house, Carly tells the others that she needs to pee. Then her boyfriend, Scott says to her "Well, l need to remind you of a little movie called Deliverance." Well, what does Scott signify there? I've never seen the movie.Bunch
Question: Why didn't the ape-keeper, Rodney, simply shoot Caesar? He was in the sniping platform, he was aiming the tranquilizer rifle, he had a clear shot, but he just lowered his rifle and fled when Caesar yelled "No!" for the first time. If Rodney had pulled the trigger, the ape rebellion would have been nipped in the bud.Charles Austin Miller
Question: Two questions. First, why is Hagrid sent to tell Harry about the wizarding world and escort him to Diagon Alley? Being a half-giant, he would attract attention from a lot of Muggles. Second, have no Muggles noticed that several children arrive at King's Cross Station with owls every year? The owls would be seen before the wizarding families approach Platform 9 3/4.
Question: I understand the concept of spelling mistakes and an editor accidentally missing them, especially for an unknown actor's name. But how did "Callahan" end up getting misspelled when it was spelled correctly in the first film? Has any reason been given? Or if there someone with general knowledge of how end credits are produced, is there no editor?Bishop73
Question: When Dim and Georgie are taking Alex through the woods to beat him up, Alex says: "I just don't get this all. It was them that went for me, brothers. You're not on their side and can't be. You can't be Dim. It was someone we fillied with back in the old days... Trying to get his own bit of revenge after all this time. Remember, Dim?" What does Alex mean by saying "it was them that went for me"? Also, who is "them" that they with fillied back in the old days and is trying to get revenge?Qwarke
Question: If Dumbledore wanted to take the Philosopher's Stone and hide it at Hogwarts in order to lure Voldemort out (as answered in another question), isn't that taking a huge risk in regards to Harry's safety? Dumbledore knows Harry is starting that year and also that Voldemort wants to eliminate Harry, so isn't he potentially putting Harry at risk by attempting to lure Voldemort to Hogwarts (to get the stone). I mean after Harry defeats Quirrell/ Voldemort in the chamber and Dumbledore visits him in the hospital wing, he doesn't even apologise for risking Harry's life by moving the stone from Gringotts to Hogwarts.
