Questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
These are questions relating to specific titles. General questions for movies and TV shows are here. Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.
Question: How many raptors are in the movie? When Ellie goes to turn the power on there is one raptor inside there. Around the same time two are preying on Muldoon. Later in the kitchen two appear, sneaking for Lexi and Tim. Tim locks one into the freezer. Towards the end one appears at the control room door. Dr. Grant gets on the phone with Hammond and ask "there are only the two raptors?" Then Grant is heard shooting at it through the glass. Finally our heroes are surrounded in the compound center by two raptors. This is where the T-Rex enters to finish them off. Always makes me wonder how many Velociraptors were really in the movie.
Question: Rather than sending an army into enemy territory to save a single soldier, wouldn't it have made more sense to put the word out among troops to try find Private Ryan as they found each other? It would have been awfully risky to send an army unit into enemy territory to save a single soldier.
Question: Was the whole pileup because death tried to kill the survivors of the pileup? I mean he tried to fix their earlier survival due to the survivors of flight 180. I don't get the whole relation of the survivors of the pileup to the survivors of flight 180.
Question: The group is held in a farm house with a grass roof. Kate climbs out and over the roof, but begins to slide off the roof. Then the other member runs to the other side of the room, breaches through the roof, grabs her hands to save her from falling and says I'll pull you in. To which she replies no. My question is why did she have to scale the roof from the other side if he could reach through the roof and grab her hands? He could have easily used that as a point of escape to begin with.
Question: Did this movie have some sort of point? That genocide of several million to prevent war was a good idea? That and how did they avoid being sued considering Batman's got an Owl Man, a Spider Woman was in existence before this spider super heroine and the white masked guy seems to be a take on The Question.Rob245
Question: During the chase scene, Marty jumps into the water at one end to avoid getting hit by Griff. A few seconds later Marty is out of the water at the other end and climbing up stairs. How did he get to the other end so quickly? Why is he climbing up the stairs after being in the water at the other end of the pond?
Question: Why did they try to outrun the Dutchman? Wouldn't they have known that Jones had the power to summon the Kraken? The first ship that Will thinks is the Dutchman, Jack prods Gibbs who tries to cover it up by saying "Must have been a foul at the reef" So Jack and Gibbs both know that the Kraken destroyed this ship (Bootstrap even tells Jack that Jones' leviathan is after him) The crew member Will speaks too says it was something beneath them with a foul breath, then the Dutchman appears nearby. When Will is on the Edinburgh, the Kraken attacks again with the Dutchman nearby. At the very least you'd expect Will to be able to put two and two together that every time the Dutchman is near, so is the Kraken! Wouldn't he have warned everyone about this?
Question: Why did the Pearl not have any of the damage that the Dutchman or the Kraken inflicted upon it before she sunk? The Dutchman shoots cannon balls through the captain's quarters. The Kraken slams it's tentacles through all of her cannon ports in retaliation after they shoot it and destroys the captain's quarters as well. When they rescue both Jack and the Pearl from the locker, there is no damage to her. I doubt very much Jack had the materials, know how or the man power (he couldn't move the cannons back into place by himself). You could argue that the "locker" has some sort of magic that fixes ships upon them entering but then it wouldn't explain why the Pearl still had her charred hull after Beckett set her alight as the Wicked Wench.
Question: Why after receiving a phone call from Laura's friend at the YMCA does her husband go looking through all her stuff on the bed? Then he finds the ring in the toilet. It just makes no sense why he's tearing through her stuff.
Question: Where was Truly was going prior to going in the duck pond the first two times? She changes her plans easily.
Question: What are the small tubes that are collected in Colonel Breed's H.Q.? General Warden seems to figure out what they are.
Question: When Davy Jones summons the Kraken after Will escapes with the key, why does Bootstrap Bill not scream "No" until after Davy Jones announces what he's doing (..."and let this day be cursed by we who are ready to wake... The Kraken")... He must know what the Kraken hammer does, why doesn't he react when they first start charging it up?
