Movies with massive plot holes


LegoPig

Recommended Posts

Reservoir Dogs

 

It's the Mexican stand-off at the end of the film. Boss Joe Cabot's gun is aimed at Mr Orange, who is lying in a pool of blood on the floor. Mr White is pointing his gun at Joe, while Nice Guy Eddie has his gun pointed at Mr White. They all fire, and bang, the film is neatly concluded. Except for the fact that Eddie is dead, but no one shot him. Apparently, in the script, Mr White was supposed to have turned to kill Nice Guy Eddie after killing Joe, but the exploding squibs under his tracksuit went off by mistake and Eddie, played by Chris Penn, fell to the ground before he could be 'shot'. Tarantino is said to have kept it in to give geeks something to argue about.

 

 

The Matrix

 

Yes, it's daft as a brush, but still it's worth pointing out just why The Matrix is so daft. So the machines create the world around us to keep us all sedated, right? But why create a world with fully functioning computers so that the inhabitants can hack into their code and realise that it's all a big fake? Better surely to use farm animals - say cows - in the Matrix, rather than inquisitive humans with access to the internet. Seems obvious.

 

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

 

This one's courtesy of ?Family Guy?, when Chris and his manager at the mini mart point out a rather salient issue that might have made Frodo's journey to Mount Doom far more pleasant. If he jumps on a big flying eagle at the end to escape the volcano, couldn't he have just done that at the beginning? Y'know, instead of taking on the arduous, perilous quest with millions killed in the ensuing battle along the way? Even better, just give the ring to the massive eagle, and he could do it. Just a thought.

 

Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

 

It's all a question of timing. As we're told throughout the saga, training to become a Jedi is quite the undertaking. You can't just do it in a few hours. Or can you? Let's go over the rather shaky sequence of events, shall we? Luke heads off to Yoda's manky swamp planet, while the Millennium Falcon containing Han, Chewie, Leia et al gets chased by the Empire to Cloud City. They arrive, get captured by Darth Vader, upon which Luke has pretty much finished his training. So either the Millennium Falcon was being chased for months and months on end, or Luke's Jedi training takes an afternoon. It's harder to get your bronze Duke of Edinburgh.

 

Transformers

 

The name of Shia LaBeouf's character is unfeasible enough (Sam Witwicky? Really?), let alone this supremely daft plot. So Witwicky is selling on eBay the very glasses that the Decepticons want, the ones left him by his explorer great grandfather, and the ones with the location of the AllSpark (don't get us started on that) printed on them. No what's easier than smashing a city to pieces trying to get them? That's right, setting up an eBay account and pressing 'Buy It Now'. Odd that such a thing was beyond the technologically superior Transformer race.

If i remember correctly The Matrix could only function if those who wanted to leave it had a choice to leave so the machines made it possible for those who thought that something was wrong with the fake world to break out.

This.

 

In Reloaded, during Neo's conversation with the Architect, the Architect explains that humans beings didn't want to be forced into being a part of the Matrix. In order to keep the humans happy, they had to be given the choice whether or not to allow themselves to be a part of it. According to the Architect, 99% were happy to comply as long as "they were given a choice, even if they were only aware of it at a near unconcious(? Hate spelling that word) level."

 

But as long as the humans within the Matrix were able to overlook the occasional "glitches" of the system or remain out of contact with those in the outside world, they were never any wiser.

Nightmare on Elm Street- Freddy is in your dreams. Just multiply yourself, or give yourself powers, and beat the **** out of him. Seems rather simple.

 

Bruce Almighty- God is white.

 

Saw- nobody noticed someone purchasing extremely large amounts of metal and other building materials?

The terminator-The whole reason the humans sent Kyle Reese back in time was to protect Sarah Conner from the terminator, but he winds up knocking her up too and creating John Connor. In theory if the machines hadn't sent a terminator back in time then the humans wouldn't have sent Kyle Reese and John Conner would never have been born.

It just stopped. There were two long conversations and the movie was over.

 

The conversation was about his inability to keep up with the times and the new breed of criminal. He was saying how he had a dream where his father died and left him to fend in the world himself, then when he died his dad was waiting for him.

 

I take it your the "The movie has to have the good guy beating the bad guy and getting the girl!"

Yeah that isn't really a plot hole in LOTR.

 

The ring corrupts anyone who bares it - very few can resist it long enough to get to Mordor. Using the Eagles to fly with the ring, or Frodo, would be extremely risky. Why? Because assuming the Eagles didn't become corrupt, Saurons eye would see them coming from miles away, and he would set his Nazgul upon them. That is waaay risky - relying on them either flying past them, or beating them, with the whole world at risk. The only other options were all out war (they were outnumbered drastically, and the races of the world would not unite) or to send a single agent to sneak past everyone and do it stealthily. The wars and deaths were not collateral damage, they were a necessary distraction.

this is perhaps the stupidest thing I have ever read on the interwebs.. and that is really something considerring the absolute idiocy of this forum alone!

 

Mr. Orange shoots Nice Guy Eddie

 

The matrix only works with willing participants.. even if 99.99999% of them are only subconsciously willing

 

Luke Skywalker leaves Yoda long before his training was complete, they both say so on numerous occasions, and is also why he could not defeat Vader in the Cloud City. And at the end of the movie Luke is returning to continue his training.

 

I am willing to bet a pretty substantial sum that most every intergalactic sentient robot races in this universe would have a difficult time producing social security numbers and credit ratings to get credit cards to use on E-Bay... just sayin. I know I know, if some guy in Nigeria can steal SS numbers and identities then a few super-bots can, but you don't even know if they have any concept of currency or purchasing goods or other Human-centric ideals.

 

And read the unabridged Tolkien LOTR books. It explains that the race of eagles has always been the Swiss of Middle Earth, they remain out of the business of other beings, good or bad. The only time they had ever gotten involved was when one side or the other was attempting to sway the balance toward their side. With Sauron already defeated there would be no appearrance of taking sides, they were simply doing an old friend (Gandalf) a favor. Also it alludes to the fact several times that the giant Eagles (and Sauron) were the only things in Middle Earth the winged beasts of the nazgul feared.

no one ever got in the position to shoot him' date=' and batman doesnt kill people[/quote']

 

Buzzz!!! Wrong answer my friend!

 

In the "Dark Knight" Graphic novels, early on in the run of the title in fact, Batman does kill, the Joker in fact' after the Joker kills the 3rd incarnation of Robin. He subsequently goes insane and is committed to Arkham, where he again collides with the Scarecrow and comes just inches from killing him as well.

BUZZ wrong, just cuz one author from the thousands who ever wrote a batman comic decided to make him kill someone it doesnt mean batman does it. the whole point to batman is that he will not kill people, he just gives them to the police

Nooo....I'm a huge film fan and a big fan of the Coen Bros. Perhaps I should read the book to understand why they'd just end the movie out out of nowhere. I know what you're saying and I get it,

Human Centipede had a hole in it. the three have surgery downstairs then the next scene the doc is waking them up in his living room which is upstairs...

 

how did he get them upstairs? there are only three options and they can be easily debunked:

 

1) we know they didn't walk up the stairs because later in the movie they made a point to show how much a pain and borderline impossible it was for them to do this when they were trying to escape. Another reason this isn't a plausible reason for them to be upstairs is because the doctor was waking them up from the surgery upstairs. when he woke them up that is when they realized they were stuck together.

 

2) no way the doctor picked them up and carried them upstairs. how could he carry three people sewed mouth to *** anywhere? wouldn't you think if he picked up one end then the surgical areas would rip apart from the weight? wouldn't the exact same thing happen if he tried to pick them up from the middle? no possible way staples, stitches, and surgical tape could them together.

 

3) there was an elevator that the doc used to cart them upstairs... well if that's the case why didn't the three use the elevator when they were trying to escape?

lol hes a cop' date=' hes not gonna blow his head over the pavement when he can just arrest him[/quote']

 

what the **** why wouldn't he, joker had killed a high ranking judge, a police commissioner and attempted to assassinate the mayor, in the process apparently killing gordin himself. and not to mention anyone else he killed in that time frame

 

did america give the order to capture bin laden? no, they killed him, and the same would apply to the joker, he is an incredibly dangerous criminal/terrorist

 

i've also noticed you can never accept being wrong on the forums

I'm not sure if this was ever covered...but in Iron Man 2' date=' Tony Stark is in the third "suit" and at some point Rhodie gets into the second "suit" - Tony Stark has a reactor inside of his chest, how exactly is Rhodie powering the silver suit???[/quote']

 

the silver suit was a model he designed for the military for military use.. it powered itself

thats cuz im always right. Its because laden was killed by the army, the army's goal isnt to arrest people its to kill the targets. Police officers on the other hand arent allowed to shoot a guy when he is not even able to shoot back. the joker was on his back with a gun to his head, he surrendered and the cops arrested him. It doesnt really matter what he did, if some kid decided to blow up a hospital and shoot up a school then give himself in, the cops cant shoot him...
