** Wolf was the older (and in some languages literally "bigger"). Hence it works that the larger piece gets the name of the elder astronomer.

** Plus, it's not like landing the helicopters would have been a good idea. It's unlikely their crews were armed and thus able to deter a mob of scared people trying to escape certain death.

** There were soldiers all around the buses to keep the evacuation of the lottery-winners orderly, who were already leery of troublemakers trying to force their way on board. Who's to say the authorities hadn't already warned the chosen families that anyone who got violent would be tossed off the bus and left behind, no matter ''who'' they were?

*** A valid point, but that still doesn't excuse his speeding down the road and the fiery crash he ended up in. Even one day's delay wouldn't have made much difference.
*** What makes you think it's supposed to "excuse his speeding down the road and the fiery crash he ended up in"? It doesn't matter whether he's excused or not. The point is that it's HIS choice. It's HIS character. He's not you. If he'd rather hurry to get this news out as soon as possible (whether from excitement or panic) that's HIS business, not yours.
**** Yes, god forbid we question the reasoning and actions of a character in a dramatic movie we're watching! That's not the point at all! Just sit back and turn off your brain, dammit!
*** Or just acknowledge that you're not the sole arbiter of what every character ever should be doing because you find it "logical"?
