New this month

Pet Sematary picture

New this month Question: What was wrong with Rachel's sister Zelda? In the flashbacks it shows the older sister as having a twisted spine and being in bed. But what was wrong with her? Was she crippled?

New this month Answer: In the original film, she has a condition called "spinal meningitis," which is an infection in the fluids and membranes around the spine and brain. The disease in real life can cause a range of effects including severe joint and back pain, weight loss, light sensitivity and even brain damage. The implication in both films seems to be that we're not really seeing the "real" Zelda, but more of a monstrous version of Zelda based on Rachel's memory as a child.

Best trivia

Back to the Future Part III picture

Trivia: When filming the scene where Marty is being hanged from the clock tower, Michael J Fox agreed to really hang from the rope. Whilst filming, Fox held the rope away from his throat with his hand. At one time he wasn't holding the rope and was really being strangled. The film crew didn't realise, they just thought it was really good acting, until he passed out.

Recent unanswered questions

Valentine picture

Question: I came up with a theory: Jeremy Melton is not the killer, the boy with the mask at the prom is, and this is Adam avenging his friend. Jason Marquette is Jeremy Melton who still is a ladies' man who's constantly rejected by women. That explains how both share the same initials, why he disappears after dating Shelly and the next time we saw him was at the art show where he was staring like a creep at the girls, I know this was meant to be a red herring but what are the chances? Also this would explain how little resemblance Jeremy and Adam have, no surgery in the world could make you look like David Boreanaz. So my theory is that they worked together. The only problem with this theory is the nose bleeding but anyone could have a nose bleed at anytime. My question is does this theory hold up?

Best Marvel mistakes

Doctor Strange picture

Factual error: In the first scene where Dr Strange is preparing for surgery he uses improper surgical gowning technique breaking aseptic protocols. Strange puts on a mask after washing his hands, contaminating his clean hands by bringing them in proximity to the non-sterile environment of his face. Surgical masks must be worn before the full washing of hands. Another error is that he inserted his hands all the way through his gown to don gloves. Hands must never leave the sleeves and gloves must be put on with the sleeves still covering.

Revealing mistake: When Captain Needa is killed by Darth Vader because they lost track of the Millennium Falcon, in the background, two guards come to take him away. You can clearly see the dead captain get up almost by himself. (01:10:50)
