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: Anyone in a sales floor realizes that if you have a lot of people in one room talking at the same time, there's background noise. Yet only one or two people have active noise canceling headsets. Everyone else uses handsets. Either everyone should or no one should. Why the difference?
Question: We all know that Marlena is bitten by one of the smaller monsters in the subway. When the group finds the military hospital, Marlena is escorted behind a curtain because of the bite. We see blood suddenly spray onto the curtain, meaning there was a small explosion to kill her. Was the explosion caused by the monster bite, or did the military have to do it to her?
Question: What exactly was Hank's "plan" with the lawn darts, shovel and whatnot? I never quite caught that.
Question: At the beginning of the film, when Indy's first shown, he says "Russians" upon seeing the Soviets. Weren't the Soviets just called Soviets and not Russians (since the Soviet Union still existed)?
Question: At the very end of the movie, when Sy's camera ends up having only photos of "the little things" as opposed to the pictures of the other characters pretending to have sex, I interpreted it as Sy not having actually TAKEN pictures of the couple, but really taking pictures of the room itself, on purpose - so that the pictures wouldn't get out, but instead he would just be giving them what he feels they deserved. However, on a couple other websites I have found the ending interpreted as Sy having hidden or disposed of the film that he took the lewd photographs with. Are either of these considered to be "correct"?
Question: Healy tries to impress Mary by pretending to be an architect, drugging the dog, getting new teeth, liking the same movies, and by saying he works with handicapped children. Why then would he call them "retards" and say he keeps one in a cage and puts him on a leash like a dog?! Wouldn't he think this would piss Mary off? I never understood that scene and why he would say this.Carl Missouri
Question: What is the song playing when Tony is working on his hotrod and then Pepper walks in and turns it off?
Question: I heard that, originally, the relationship between Indiana and Mutt was going to be unstated and ambiguous (rather than being outright confirmed). Is there any truth to this, or is it just rumour?
Question: The Soviets are led to the temple by a trail of dropped "bleepers". Is this a reference to the trail of M&Ms that Elliot leaves for ET in "ET"?
