Terminator 2: why did the new Terminator travel back in time to a point where John Connor is 1) already born, 2) older than an infant/toddler, and 3) he and his mother know what's coming? Would have made far more sense to travel back again to before his birth when Sarah Connor was even younger and more vulnerable. It's such a stupid story flaw that I can't even enjoy the movie for the action.

Yeah, well, R14, I guess there was so little demand for first-class train tickets in the 1930s that filling the right train car was easy.

But "Death on the Nile" is worse, if someone had stepped out of their cabin at the wrong moment, or a crew member had had a smoke on the deck, or maybe even if someone had decided that they didn't like that red nail polish after all and thrown it away, it'd all have collapsed.

The Book of Eli - the movie is full of logical inconsistencies. Where to begin? One that drove me crazy is that the bad guy's henchman drove around hunting Eli. How were those vehicles powered? It's been 30 years since the war. The henchmen are illiterate, and that is a key point since they're such a bunch of knuckleheads they can't discern if a book is a Bible. Who has been maintaining the vehicles? Not these idiots.

R8, the explanation in the book still doesn't make sense. Leather shrinks considerably as it cures. He could never cut the *gussets* (the are not fucking darts!) to shape from the body. Second, why would he leave perfectly good "material" behind. Nobody who sews would do such a thing.

R6, thank you. That is a plot point that has driven me nuts for years... almost as much as people CONFUSING DARTS WITH FUCK'N GUSSETS! Darts are removing a triangular piece of fabric to shape the fabric in, such as under the bust. Gussets are a piece of fabric added.

R18 that explanation doesn't work. Clearly it was an exact enough science that they could target Sarah before John was born. So the second time they should have gone back further in time, not more recent.

It also would have better resolved the problem of having Arnold in the second film. Had they gone further back, they could use the same Terminator. But future John taking the same Terminator and repurposing it was the second stupidest thing about the movie.

Blair Witch (2016)

All of that "you have to stand in the corner because you'll drop dead if you look at the witch" business was silly. In the first one, it was Rustin Parr, not the witch, who brought kids in the basement in pairs and made one stand in the corner while he killed the other. This was because he didn't like the sensation of being watched while he did these awful things. And unless she really was batshit crazy, Mary Brown reported seeing the witch and she still lived to tell about it.

They just changed everything up for this sequel and it didn't make sense to me.

R23, per the book the need for the "darts" (gussets) was because he wanted as few seams as possible, but none of the women were big enough to accommodate his broad shoulders. So he needed "darts" placed in strategic locations to make the garment fit without it stretching and puckering.

The book suggests but doesn't say the diamond shapes he cuts off the victim Clarice sees were just extra. He was looking for a victim with a big chest but she turned out to be flat so he shot her in the chest because she was ultimately useless to him. He has a workroom full of scraps and already has gone through lots of trial and error with tanning skin. He practically drools over his next victim, Catherine Martin, because she has exactly the breasts/body he wants.

Not so much a plot hole but a scene that undermines the whole point of the film: The King's Speech. At his first meeting with the therapist Colin Firth is given a Shakespeare soliloquy to read while wearing headphones listening to a Beethoven symphony played very loudly. Unable to hear himself, the King recites the speech perfectly. Makes sense, doesn't it? Fast forward to the climatic ending and the King is making a crucial World War II announcement over radio which he is being coached through by the dedicated therapist. Oh the drama! But since the broadcast is from a studio away from public view why not repeat the headphone remedy that the therapist showed at the start of the film?

I quite enjoy Ozark on Netflix, but the writers often contort themselves in order to deliver BIG, AWESOME PLOT TWISTS.

To wit, the whole season one plot where the Snells pretty much force Mason to preach on the boat so they can move their opiates (hidden in the hymnals they pass out). This is a pretty silly scheme to begin with; the idea that the police boats wouldn’t interfere with a church service. But why did they have to have Mason do it? They could have hired ANY preacher willing to play ball. Or even someone just pretending to be a preacher and reading from a script.

by Anonymousreply 4704/30/2020

R45, not quite. Remember, Indy has the medallion when he thinks Marion was killed. Had he just left at that point, the Nazis would not have found the ark. Instead, he leads them to it. Now, if he had never gone to see Marion at all, likely the outcome would have been the same except they would have really killed her.

R38, the therapy wasn't just for that speech; remember his earlier humiliations. The king needed to be able to speak in public, period. The speech at the end was just the test of his success. Even if he had used the crutch of drowning himself out to give a flawless speech in that instance, he would have many occasions in future when that wasn't possible.

Curse of Chucky/Cult of Chucky

Seed of Chucky established that Tiffany did a spell to inhabit the body of Jennifer Tilly, yet there is no mention of this in either of the two films. She is only just human Tiffany again. So is Jennifer Tilly considered a missing person in this universe? Does Tiffany double as a movie star/professional poker player as well as killing on the side like some kind of fucked up Hannah Montana?

I hope the TV show they're making will explain this a little bit better.

by Anonymousreply 5304/30/2020

R52, true but it still stands to reason for that one particular crucial speech, they could have used the headphones trick to ensure the King would have no problem. Especially since they did all kinds of other tricks to avoid problems, like changing the speech and banishing everyone but Lionel from the room. The movie could have used a scene where the King refused the headphones, insisting he wanted to hear himself giving the most important speech of his life, or something like that.

I suppose we can accept that Goldfinger constructed an entire building to create2 an elaborate audio-visual sales pitch for his plot to blow up an atomic bomb in Fort Knox to show to all the top gangsters in the country because he wanted to impress them moments before he killed them. But why kill them? All the remaining gangsters know where he lives.

And even if you can think of a reason why taking on rubbing out the entire leadership of the mafia nationwide hours before committing the moon landing of crime is a good idea, why crush Mr. Solo inside his car with a million dollars of gold in the trunk. Kill him on the driveway. Take the gold out of the trunk before crushing the car.

All of the scenes with the gangsters work solely to entertain the audience.

Extending the Agatha Christie discussion: in Evil Under the Sun, much like Death on the Nile, the murderers' scheme depends on everything occurring like clockwork with every other person not savvy to the scheme behaving precisely in a particular fashion.

Just as an example: prior to murder plot going into motion, a person's wristwatch is forwarded by 20 minutes to supply an alibi; what if the wristwatch's owner discovered that it was the wrong time and changed it back?

"In Sleeping with the Enemy, I never understood why she put her wedding ring in the toilet while making her escape. Isn't that how he figured out she was still alive?"

In the novel "Sleeping With The Enemy" the psycho husband finds out she's still alive when a woman approaches him to offer her condolences. The woman was at the YWCA where Sarah took swimming classes and comments on how at first she was terrified of the water but after a while she became a wonderful swimmer. So...the bitch knew how to swim! When he's informed of that he knows that she didn't drown and surmises she probably left him to run off with another man. So he sets out to find her and get revenge. The book was an interesting read, if preposterous. Poor Sarah runs off to Iowa with not very much money and only the possessions she can fit in a plastic garbage bag; using a fake name and not using a SS number (her crazy husband would easily find her if she used one) she easily finds a job and a place to live and as it so happens a nice, well off, attentive, single college professor lives right next door to her. The writing is good but the story is ridiculjous.

by Anonymousreply 8104/30/2020

R81, that's in the movie as well. I can't remember if the woman approaches him before or after he finds the wedding ring in the toilet, but he pieces it all together after discovering several clues.

"[R15] The biggest plot hole in both films is why would you commit a murder with a master detective on board "

R37, that was actually one of the things I liked about th 1974 version of "MotOE".

SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS!!! Okay, at the beginning, when they're all boarding the train, there's an odd moment when Mrs. Hubbard is boarding and sees Poirot, and she gives him an odd cold look. Which passes without notice the first time you see the film, but when you see it again, you realize that she's seen Poirot, realized she has a huge complication, and isn't afraid. And if you see the film again and again, as I have, you see the whole progression of events on the train as a battle of wits between the two of them. Which he concedes at the end, leaving her triumphant.

Brannaugh chucked all that for the remake, and the film is poorer for it. He couldn't stand playing a character who didn't win all around, the egomaniac.

"People who know how to swim drown all the time."

Well, in the novel that's how Martin realizes Sarah is alive; after being told she was a good swimmer. She always told him she was terrified of the water, and she was, until she hatched her plan to escape by overcoming her fear. Seems in her youth her brother and her were out swimming and he drowned, causing her terror of the water. By the way, the bit about him finding the ring wasn't in the novel.

And yes, the plot about her disguising herself as a man to visit her mother in the nursing home (she's still playing dead) was in the book was really dumb. Someone said her disguise in the movie looked like something you'd see on "I Love Lucy."

by Anonymousreply 9204/30/2020

R89 I can't remember who said it but it was suggested that The Howells were in Hawaii at one of their many mansions (remember the suitcase with keys to "a house in every state" episode?), Ginger was there shooting a film (which took several months), The Professor was teaching during this time (hence all of his books) & Mary Ann was there visiting someone she knew earlier in her life. The plane/s that were supposed to take them back to the mainland were delayed (due to the storm that knocked them off course on the U.S. Minnow) & were looking for alternate ways to get back. The Skipper & Gilligan were desperate for tourists for their 3 hour cruise & told them all that they could keep their belongings in the (cargo) hold of the Minnow until their new planes arrived (which would've happened after the 3 hour tour) so they all had plenty of time to kill. The huge storm knocked the Minnow off course where they crashed onto "Gilligan's Island".

A common mistake some viewers make is that they took all of their belongings for the sole purpose of the 3 hour tour. The ongoing problem the show has is that none of the the later episodes refer to what any of the four tourists were doing in Hawaii to begin with so it was just speculation from the TPTB in later interviews as to why they had some much stuff with them. Also 3 of the 7 castaways wear the same clothes except for a few exceptions (Gilligan wears cut-off pants in the one where Mary Ann thinks she is Ginger but we don't see them ever again). This implies that he had more than one pair of pants on the island but they all looked exactly the same.

It's also not that hard to believe that the richest ones among them (Ginger & the Howells) would overpack for their stay in Hawaii. Ginger as a "famous Hollywood movie star" would have to have multiple outfits to wear in public during her stay in Hawaii. The Howells wear their "safari outfits" in multiple episodes (Mr. Howell wears his dinner jacket outfit in several). Ginger wears the dress on the right in R79's pic more often than any of her other outfits on the show (she wears a hula outfit in more than one episode as well). They also discovered clothes in the trunk in the "Castaways make a rescue film" episode & it's possible some of the people who visited the island (only to make a quick getaway) left behind some clothes/materials for other outfits.

I saw Sleeping With the Enemy at a screening series NYU used to do where alumni filmmakers would come back and show their films to students right before they opened. 95% of the time, the filmmaker(s) would be there to do a Q&A afterwards. It was usually just open to Tisch film school students and the room it was held in accommodated maybe 100 so it was a very intimate experience. I used to go to as many as I was able to get into.

Joseph Ruben came w/ Sleeping and the audience laughed so much during the movie that he had a real attitude during the Q&A. And it just went south from there.

R94 Did you stop to think that maybe the storm wasn't near the Hawaiian islands when it delayed the plane/s ? It might have made the plane/s turn back around to their point of origin (not at their Hawaiian destination). The Skipper could have credibly thought that he could get the passengers safely back before the storm hit the Hawaiian islands. I think one of the GI reunion movies implied that the Skipper & Gilligan were desperate for income from their 3 hour tours (probably why they didn't play it safe that day).

Since Gilligan was the first mate on the Minnow (which had no other crew members), he would've been responsible for the passengers as well as their belongings. Do you know how long it would've taken him to put all of that stuff in the cargo hold by himself? Probably over an hour (at least for all of the five guests luggage).

Ginger & The Howells all seemed to be part of the stereotypical rich who have to be waited on hand & foot by someone so he might've had to get them some food/drinks before they left the dock (adding more time before they left for that 3 hour tour). Bottom line is it wasn't just a 3 hour tour fans keep debating before the storm hit the ship. Lots of stuff had to have happened that wasn't shown (except for the parts in the opening theme song). The closest the show ever got to discussing what went on before the huge storm is the episode where they hear on the radio that the Skipper is blamed by the Maritime Board for the castaways disappearance.

Is this a plot hole? Opinions, please ...

One-third of the way through "All About Eve," one of the main characters just vanishes: Birdie, played by Thelma Ritter.

She was also the first one to tumble to Eve's true evil nature, so it would have been natural for Margo Channing to go to her when Margo realizes.

There's no mention of Birdie being fired or quitting. She just disappears and no one ever mentions her again.

KNIVES OUT - Pretty much everything having to do with the character of Fran.

As the person who found Harlan's body, she would've been one of the first people questioned by the police and Benoit Blanc. Instead she is apparently ignored and only becomes important later on.

Even worse: Ransom meets her (per the blackmail note) at the deserted laundromat at 8:00 AM. Although he injects her with a lethal dose of morphine, she manages to stay alive until 10:00 AM -- just long enough for Marta, with perfect timing, to find her. Per the movie's own rules, morphine kills within 10 minutes (hence, the whole deal with Harlan.) Yet, somehow, Fran survives for over 2 hours -- because that is what the plot requires at that point.

Tell me what you think of this? This is straight from Jamie Lee Curtis. She thought it was absurd and I always found it extremely effective!

In Halloween 2, when Laurie hides in a car in the hospital parking lot, Loomis arrives with a cop I think, Jamie crawls out of the car (she is battered and in a hospital nightgown)

She claws her way on the asphalt trying to scream to them for help, but she cannot get the scream out!!!!

The cop and Loomis just go inside, the doors close, and Laurie musters a scream just when it is too late.

I just saw an interview with her and she thought this was ludicrous.

I used to have nightmares all the time where I was running for help and could not scream.

So I found this scene to make complete sense (she had been through a horror) and extremely chilling.

Near the end of Citizen Kane, when Raymond the butler is speaking to the reporter, he recounts Kane's last actions and the famous last word as if he was in the room when it happened. The room was very dark, so maybe he was sitting in a chair off to the side. Perhaps the nurse just ran to the bathroom for a minute. Someone as rich as Kane would surely have someone attending him on his deathbed 24/7. That's how I imagine we know what Kane's final word was. Raymond did seem a bit deceitful, though, so maybe he just made the whole thing up for a little extra cash. He was about to be out of a job, after all.

I stand by my statement. It would be easier by far to train astronauts, who at the time would have been selected due to their high level of achievement in various fields and already had space training, to do the drilling than it would be to train oilwell drillers, who let's face probably mostly only had high school educations at best, how to fly a spacecraft and manage in space.

I think the producers definitely wanted to appeal to a younger crowd. The writers had Heather working as a meat cutter in a grocery store,- they could have written it as a 40 something lonely woman who thought her younger co-workers were her friends and they accompanied her on the trip as a part of plan to rob her or take valuable things in the house like the hitchhiker guy did. The writers could have done flashbacks and shown how the "adoptive parents" treated her like crap when she was growing up and they could have the "adoptive parents" killed in the movie instead of that post credits scene.

BATMAN VS SUPERMAN: THE DAWN OF JUSTICE! the entire movie was a plot hole, beyond ridiculous, beyond illogical and so on...the only reason to watch is to see cavill in his suit and the appearance of wonder woman.. so many plot holes that you could actually see the holes as they were happening in a scene (usually it's only after a movie is done and you think about it, do you then realize the plot holes) and more then 1 plot hole in EACH scene!...

shameful that zack snyder and others put this movie out there as is.. i'm sure their thinking was "we can put any shit out there and the comic fan boys and girls will see it!"..

Topkapi (1964) -- the first issue is merely logical: Peter Ustinov is so afraid of heights he refuses to cross over the top of the Topkapi Palace in the dark, so Maximilian Schell makes the decision to cross right then, during the day -- despite the fact that they can be seen by anybody looking at the roof of the palace.

But this decision then creates a plot hole, or at least a major inconsistancy: once the Sultan's Dagger has been successfully stolen, Ustinov, Schell and Gilles Ségal cross back over the roof of the palace -- in the dark!

In the original "Halloween", Laurie walks from her house to the Myers House to drop off a key. She runs into Tommy who she will be babysitting later on his way to school. . Later, while Loomis is outside the Myers House, he looks down the block and see the Myers car parked by Tommy's house. That means all 3 houses are within walking distance of each other. Then why when Annie picks up Laurie they have to drive so far that the day goes from bright sun to pitch black.

Also, If Loomis is walking around after he finds the car, how come he doesn't hear Laurie screaming in the streets.

The first one (driving) -who said Annie and Laurie were going directly to the babysitting gigs when Annie picked her up? Establishing shots of the street the houses are on don't show anything like a hardware store and since Laurie met Tommy while walking to school, it makes little sense that she would need Annie to drive her to his house unless they were going to do something else first.

Michael being in the mask in what may be hours before the store break in is a continuity error.

"How did poor and struggling waitress Penny afford that big apartment all by herself on The Big Bang Theory? "

Penny's apartment is a one-bedroom, and is smaller and cheaper than Leonard and Sheldon's 2-bedroom place.

But even then, it's pretty clear that she can't actually afford it, she was having financial problems and letting her "check engine" light stay on for months for much of the show's run. She was obviously being unrealistic about her finances, living above her means because she thought she'd get work as an actress or meet some rich guy, and all her troubles would vanish. She may have been living in a "nice" area in the hopes of meeting some guy who could pay her bills, that's a known gold-digging tactic.

R287, that isn't a plot hole. More often than not, that is a continuity problem. The scene in which the police were called was cut for pacing, or similar. Here are a few examples of a plot hole:

A plot hole would be establishing that a character is diabetic and then having him do something that would send a diabetic into a coma.

A plot hole is having a character or object do something that is physically impossible, such as being in two places at once (unless it is a fantasy, of course.)

A plot hole is something that is glaringly inaccurate in order to advance the plot, e.g, in The Lives of Others, the Stasi agent would never be doing surveillance alone or without being watched himself; however, the plot does not work under that reality. It isn't , however, a glaring inaccuracy that does not advance the plot. The fact that Sarah Howard, in The Alienist, smokes on a train in 1896, is inaccurate, but it has nothing to do with the plot. Therefore, it is not a plot hole.

It is not to be confused with suspension of disbelief, such as to realizing that the men in Tootsie of Mrs, Doubtfire are in drag.

"How did Michael Dorsey perpetuate the fraud that he was a woman and not get caught when they were issuing him his paychecks?"

Back when checks were a thing, actors could put their stage name on a check along side their real name, and joint checking accounts existed. I don't know what kind of proof of existence a bank needed to add a name to a checking account, but someone pulling a "Tootsie" could have done either.

As for his co-workers realizing he's a man, well, the script said he did his own hair and makeup and dressed himself. And I presume he had the presence of mind to use a stall in the women's room, and remembered to sit down when he did. And unlike a lot of Trannies, Dustin Hoffman is a small slim man, with no broad shoulders or bulging muscles to give him away. He actually looked petite, next to Jessica Lange and Geena Davis, they're big tall gals.

At least on Bosom Buddies they had some actual accounts and clients. Dre has a dream job and never seems to have to worry about money. I know his wife is a doctor but still with all those kids it seems kind of unrealistic that they never have any money or work issues. It is kind of a fantasy world designed to teach the audience life lessons.

Which has never happened on a television show before.

Fair point! I thought of that right after I posted it.

R210, I know someone made a joke, but it is established later that Phyllis and Lars do own the building. They conceal it from the tenants but Mary eventually works out that P&L Management is the Lindstrom's company.
