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: Tom Hanks told Sophie that she was the heir of Christ and she was not the little girl in the accident which killed all four family members. Why did Sophie have memory of the accident which was shown when she was trying to help Tom Hanks relieve himself from his phobia inside the armored truck?
Question: When the IMF-team fake the DHL-van breaking down, some drivers from other cars join in on the shouting that ensues. Ethan looks at a man shouting something, and he responds by raising his arm at the man with his handpalm up. What exactly does it mean in Italy when you make that kind of gesture?
Question: In "One Krab's Trash", near the end Mr. Krab's tries to scare off the hat by using a ghost of a man's name he made up (Smitty Werben Jaegerman Jense.) At first, he pronounces Jaegerman as yay-grr, then just a few seconds later, starts pronouncing it as jayger. Is there a reason for this?
Question: How come only a select few people are supposed to be able to open the box (the ritual leader not being one of them) but it managed to open just by Amy throwing it across the room at the end? In the past movies also, anyone who gets their hands on the cube seem to have little or no trouble opening it.
Question: Are open-throated Allison and the mutilated dark-haired guy near the end chasing Chelsey supposed to have become cenobites? Because they seem to be animated after death like the cenobites but they aren't wearing the usual leather gear and apart from their mutilations they look otherwise human.
Question: What is the juggernaut's actual power (in the film, not the comics)? It says he can't be stopped if he has built up momentum, but that would be based on mass and velocity, neither of which seemed to change when he approached Leech, yet he was knocked out by the wall.
Question: When Kyle and Sarah change places in the pickup truck, if you play it in slow motion you can see Kyle's face transitioning to that of a stuntman. How did they manage to do that back in 1984? And more importantly, since they were driving straight ahead, why?
