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: In the beginning of the movie, Dane attempts to flee from the convention but is stopped by Nesmith, who says "the show must go on". Dane looks furiously at Nesmith for a second and then makes his appearance on stage after all. Can anybody explain to me why Nesmith's line makes Dane change his mind?
Question: I have a question about the cloaking technology all through the Star Trek universe. Does the cloak actually turn the ship using it invisible, or does it just hide the ship from being "seen" by other ships sensors? In other words, if a ship was cloaked and invisible to the view screen on the bridge, could someone looking out of a porthole still see the ship?
Question: Many times in the film 'England' as a country is mentioned, but not Scotland or Wales. Does the comic answer any questions as to what has happened to the 'British' unity of England, Scotland and Wales in this time? (E.g. are they all separate countries, or are the simply never mentioned?).
Question: What is the point of blowing up Parliament if Sutler has been overthrown and killed? It doesn't achieve anything but huge rebuilding costs.
Question: Are we ever told exactly why Jerry needs the money? His $750,000 deal with the parking lot falls through and he owes GMAC $320,000. He is going to give the kidnappers $40,000, but then it's increased to $80,000. But he sets the ransom at only $1 million. So what is the deal?
Question: Deckard has access to two sets of photographs, one from Leon's room in which he finds the lead to the replicant 'snake woman' and the other set belonging to Rachel. Yet Rachel's set also contains this same photograph - which is of an apparently empty room. I understand the reason for each to have their own 'precious' photos (as Roy calls them), but why would both Leon's set and Rachel's set contain the same empty room photo?
Question: I haven't seen this movie because my parents won't let me, but I've heard that the main character's yearbook pictures of her friends have something to do with how they are killed. Could somebody make a list of the characters and how they are killed and how their deaths pertain to the pictures?
Question: From the way it is portrayed in the movie, it looks like Bond & Wai Lin just head straight for the stealth boat once they spot it. They come at it from the front. I don't see why they would do that. Even if the surveillance guy wasn't paying attention (there's no way Bond could've known that), shouldn't someone on the bridge be able to see the dingy approaching straight at it? It would've made more sense to me if Bond waited for the ship to pass and then come from behind or the sides.
