Re: Plot holes in Great movies

V for Vendetta

When she is imprisoned by V it seems so unlikely that she wouldn't suspect something was off, how could he hide his face and put on different accents so well, I always thought this part of the movie was pretty unbelievable

I've always wondered how V didn't drop dead while getting shot 500 bazillion times.

During the rigorous and problematic shoot, the cast and crew began calling the film by various derogatory names such as "Son Of Abyss", "The Abuse" and "Life's Abyss And Then You Dive". Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio reportedly suffered a physical and emotional breakdown because she was pushed so hard on the set, and Ed Harris had to pull over his car at one time while driving home, because he burst into spontaneous crying.

Didn't he also "demand" that the cast piss in their suits because of the time it took to take them off and put them back on?

Re: Plot holes in Great movies

He's always seemed like an awkward tool. "Let's party 'til dawn!" or whatever he said to end the 1998 Oscars was made fun of quite a bit back then.

Oh yeah he also yelled "I'm the king of the world" after winning his best director Oscar for Titanic. lol.

Re: Plot holes in Great movies

The only thing I remember about Avatar was the way the bad guy died at the end.

Wasn't it something like "I'm dead mwhahahahaha"?

What a terrible film.

The "swat" team then shows up and lowers down the elevator shaft to "take" the vault. The "swat" team then takes the actual money out in bags they are carrying. How did they get the large bags of "money" (turned out to be advertisements for hookers) into the vault to send up to the guards to put in the van? It wouldn't all fit in the container Yen was hiding in and the swat team could not have carried it down to the vault as they arrive after the van left the casino.

Drives me crazy.
Oceans eleven is a great film lol. But I have another small plot hole that bugged me. When Danny ocean and Linus descend down the elevator shaft to the vault, they hook up wires to the top and drop down. When they get to the bottom they cut the wires and the security system immediately turns back on and you can see the lasers shooting across the shaft in every direction. What happened to the hanging wires? Why don't they set the alarm off?

Re: Plot holes in Great movies

Also, not a plothole but it's super dumb when Clooney reveals himself to Linus and Linus is freaked out b/c he thought Clooney was out based on what Brad Pitt told him. Clooney gives his patented ****-eating smarmy grin to Linus, like "We got ya!"

No way in hell an operation like this goes on without all parties knowing what's going on. Why the hell would they withhold this from Linus in some elaborate scheme to "get him" with a lame joke. HAHA THEY GOT HIM. BRAD AND GEORGE ARE SO SMARMY AND CLEVER HAHA.

Re: Plot holes in Great movies

Obviously. Still think it was dumb. And Oceans 12 sucked bigtime. No surprise they'd re-use this "joke".

Only thing I remember about 12 was like a 20 minute scene about how Julia Roberts looks like Julia Roberts. Uggg. I think that's when America finally was done with her. Looks like that's about when her career died, too.

Your memory is a bit faulty; they didn't say the wound was made by a similar knife, they said police found the body with the knife sticking out of it.

If I remember correctly, it was supposed to be a very distinct-looking switchbade that belonged to the son. However, he claimed that it wasn't his knife and that he had lost his through a hole in his pocket. The whole point of this bit of circumstantial evidence was that it must have been the kid's knife because it was so unique. Henry Fonda blew this out of the water by finding and purchasing an identical knife in some store.

Never heard of them before but I checked out some of their vids today and that was pretty good lol.

Gotta be so tilting for those guys that half of the comments and email they receive are along the lines of ..."it would make sense if you read the book!"

Re: Plot holes in Great movies

It's surprising how many gaping plot holes could be eliminated by one tiny little insignificant change.


In "Raiders of the Lost Ark", it made no sense that the Wehrmacht was running around the desert outside Cairo like they owned the place, when Egypt was a British protectorate in the 1930s.

All they had to do was simply change it to Libya (run by Italy) and there's no plot hole.

Re: Plot holes in Great movies

I don't know if this qualifies as a great movie (I didn't care for it) but in Inception they could think up weapons and they would appear but everybody needed an object to let them know if they were in a dream or not.
