Pit, what are some of the major plotholes in a movie that are just so blatant, you can't ignore and enjoy the movie? The major skips in logic that just cause you physical pain to witness


For instance, in Citizen Kane, he dies alone, and WHISPERS his last word, then a minute later the nurse runs in to see what happened...WHO HEARD HIS LAST WORD?!

TS, no one hears his last words. I think that's part of the movie? How else is the audience supposed to know what he's thinking? I really don't think it's a plot hole. I've seen worse I'm sure.

His last words become very important because a news reporter spends the entire film trying to figure out what it means.

O dear, the thread has been ruined.


but anyways, in the Matrix, when Cypher goes to meet with Agent Smith and discuss getting re-plugged into the matrix permanently, how did he get into the matrix to talk with Smith in the first place? SOMEONE had to have plugged him in, which means they would be watching what he was doing. you're telling me he managed to ORGANIZE, GET TO, and then TAKE PART IN a meeting with the most dangerous enemy in the movie without anybody noticing? hell in order to organize such a meeting they must have met several times before. big plot hole. there is no way this could have occurred, and thus the rest of the movie would be dramatically different. THEN WHO WAS MATRIX?

He didn't turn it in to a religious debate.

You did by responding to him. And it was the exact response he wanted. Well done.

Looks like Scott Reeder of Kyuss goes for a walk in this song. The plothole I cannot ignore is him tripping over cables coming back onstage.

Well, that's kind of the whole idea of the movie, they're trying to figure out what he said.

Tommy Wiseau's "The Room". It's basically one gigantic plot hole. I highly recommend it to everyone.

For all we know, they might have some program that autoplugs them into the matrix, like a timer or something. Just get in the chair, push the needle into your head, and then the computer autologs you on. And it's not hard for an agent to find you, just act suspicious where other people can see. Hell, he could've just stood on a busy street corner saying "agent smith, where are you, I want to make a deal" over and over again.

In Wall-E, the fat people on board the ship are able to get up and walk with a bit of effort, despite the fact that they were bed-ridden their entire lives for several generations, and their bones have become weak from low gravity and lack of use.

I understand that it's a Disney movie and needs to have a happy ending but WHAT THE ****

Yeah, but in most cases, Biology > You

It's effectively no different to someone jumping off of a bridge because they REALLY WANT to fly. Unless they have something that will make them fly, willpower alone probably isn't gonna make it happen.

The explanation I've heard is that the eagle-people are sentient creatures who didn't want to get involved in the war.

Thank you, for the past 3 years that question has put a halt to all LOTR appreciation related conversations.

They would be involved by helping to destroy the ring, so yes, they would. But I dunno, seemed like a pretty good explanation.

read the damn books!!!

They're friends of gandalf since before the hobbit. (the book)

they wanted to be above the regular conflict, but will join to help gandalf. (see: rescuing him from isengard.)

the plothole that posses me off is the time difference between star wars episode 3 to 4.

Obi wan gains like 40 years in age and the rebellion gets organized and technology totally changes wothin the time it takes for Luke to be almost in his 20's at the most.
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

because they'd have been seen immediately and taken out by the Nazgul dumbass. It's kinda obvious, a giant eagle just flying into mordor with tons of orcs and the nazgul watching the whole place. The eagles were able to go in freely because the ring had already been destroyed, thus rendering the other rings of power useless. The nazgul's power came from the rings.

"Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven For the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die
One ring for the Dark Lord on his dark throne.
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the land of Mordor where the Shadows lie."


the bolded part is talking about the Nazgul. They were once great kings but were given those rings.
