1. When the ball starts rolling down towards Indiana Jones why doesn't he just take a few steps under it instead of running away?
2. How come Obi Wan Kenobi don't remember R2D2 and C3PO?
3. In Predator 2, why don't the coppers just leave him to it, Predator is sorting out crime, killing all the gangsters, should have just let him be, put him on a salary

Ask questions maybe someone will have the answers

5. How many people passed on the Marcellus Wallace character before it fell to Ving Rhames?
6. Did he read the script?
7. Did he think all these awesome actors are in it I've gotta be in this?
8. Did he think "OH Shit I'm gunna be the kingpin of this whole goddamn flick"
9. Did he get on set and Quentin said "Right now you get bummed"
10. "A What Now"

Good questions Jumz. I'll try have a stab at answering.


1. When the ball starts rolling down towards Indiana Jones why doesn't he just take a few steps under it instead of running away?

Because BOOBY TWAPS DR JONES. BOOBY TWAPS.

2. How come Obi Wan Kenobi don't remember R2D2 and C3PO?
Both droids had their memories wiped and Obi Wan might have gone a bit mental being in the desserts of Tattooine for so many years.

3. In Predator 2, why don't the coppers just leave him to it, Predator is sorting out crime, killing all the gangsters, should have just let him be, put him on a salary
Because FOHKEN VOODOO MAGIC MON! DREAD! DREAD!

After watching the Alien movies again over the weekend I have a question. Who put the cat in the locker? Surely the cat didn't close itself in the locker

GODDAMN it james, now i have to watch these all over again. i should by all rights know this. but i dont. however, that has never stopped me from saying a bunch of stuff, so here i go:

1. you think the mayan anti-robbery system would be that easily sidestepped? "just a few steps in the opposite direction and youre fine"? first of all, the door was closing. try and get that shit open once its shut. even if youre not crushed by the rolling boulder, youre still in quite the predicament, if youre on the wrong side of the gate when it closes. its mayan/inca/mixtec/fugawi technology, and whilst it is true they were quite advance and could do alot of things, what they couldnt do, was create an elevator that goes up and down all day, nor a garage door that opens and closes. the deadliest trap was not getting crused by the boulder, or even the booby twaps, it was getting locked in that cave.

2.obiwan doesnt remember the droid? why would he, have they met before? theyre just fking droids, its like asking "why he didnt reckognize a hammer or a saw or something, thats all droids are, walking tools. the mystical bond c3po and r2d2 have with luke is to do with the force and forged through the ordeals they go through.

3. i dont remember predator 2, but i seem to recall it was dope, but, tell me, does the national guard or the army or something like that show up, to fight the predator too? because its how it usually goes, first the police, then armed forces. did the predator only kill bad guys? surely he did a few cops, and that was the main crux?

4. ving rhames killed the role of marcellus wallace, and like all actors that get a QT script, he was the first that saw it, and jumped at the chance. dont forget, ving rhames is not a basketball player, or a boxer, or rapper, hes an actor, and as such would jump at the chance to get bummed on camera.

5. the glow from the briefcase is a quaint (kitsch?) old 70s trick (reference to opening treasure chests, hence the notion it might have been gold, which it isnt, nor is it marcelluses soul, which is a really odd notion indeed) and whats in there, i always though, was a mcguffin.

5. isnt nice guy eddie already shot? anyway, yes, someone in the trifector of terror.

anchorman 2 was better than 1. theres only one thing that lets that film down, and (incredibly, and sadly) its bricks scenes, which seem largely improvised on steve carrells least funny days.
