Question: Ballroom scene: time stop [01:09:15] Right before Sara breaks the glass with the chair. there is a blonde woman in a dress not wearing a mask visible. who is she? Also what is the significance of the Pirate character at timestop [01:08:36.] Outside of Jareth and Sara. this character gets a lot of camera time. including a focal point as the the camera does the 360 degree shot towards the end. Thanks.
Question: In many flight and pre flight scenes, Ice is shown wearing a blue collared shirt under his flight suit. Is it normal for pilots to wear street clothes under their flight suits as opposed to just an undershirt? What about pants?
Question: In the end of the movie, why did Reaper grab the BFG? I could see the stock of the gun sticking out from behind him. It had no more ammo left, so what's the point?
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.
