And now for something completely different: Plot holes

    Have been visiting the politics board waaaaay too much lately, so I wanted to post something fun, innocuous.
    Writer cites his top eight movie plot chasms in history:

    Another, not on the list, comes from this summer's Batman. The judge and police commish are being killed, and Bruce Wayne swoops through his party to secret Harvey away and save his life... but, how did he know that Harvey was in danger? Erm... never explained, and implausable that "he heard reports" because it was happening simultaneously.

    So, what're your memorable movie gaffes spotted?

    The fact that Halloween was set in Haddonfield, Ill., but all the plates were California.

    Also, Joe Jackson batting right-handed in Field of Dreams.

    One hour, one response. Hmm, I thought folks would jump on this one...

    So, for me:

    Who would have ever seen Minority report enough times to notice a plot hole? What a piece of shit that movie was.

    "The Dark Knight" plot has more holes than the Bonnie and Clyde death car. Still, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.

    God help me, I have the DVD. In my defense, though, it was a Christmas stocking stuffer. But, yeah, I've watched it a couple of times.

    I saw it in the theater when it came out and kept waiting for it to get better. Needless to say I was disappointed.

    Why the hell did Stephen Falken change his mind in WarGames?

    at 10 p.m. he was content to be vaporized in a few hours.

    At 10:15, he jumps into his helicopter, picks up David and Jennifer and hightails it to Norad to keep from being vaporized.

    Good one. I think he had a thing for Ally Sheedy. She was a cutie in that movie.

    I've seen the beginning over a dozen times - I use it in a class I teach. The idea is a good one, but Speilberg totally cops out of the interesting moral question that makes the movie at all worthwhile by changing the rules at the end.

    Biggest plot hole that was explained when the movie was recut: How Clark Kent got his powers back in Superman II. If you watch the Richard Donner Cut you see how.

    Just read it, and he's mostly wrong about the alleged plot holes in MR.
