15 Egregious Sci-Fi Movie Plot Holes You May Never Noticed
JUST. USE. THE. EAGLES.
1. Why didn’t Gandalf call the Eagles to fly the fellowship into Mordor?
As this video clearly illustrates, Gandalf could have easily called his giant eagle buddies to help Frodo with his really really long journey to Mordor.
They wouldn’t have even had to flown the entire way! “Just drop me off past those marshes filled with dead people”.
2. What was Nero doing for those 25 years after he killed Kirk’s father?
He kills Kirk’s father and the entire crew aboard the USS Kelvin, but then just kind of chills out for 25 years until Jim Kirk is old enough to fly a spaceship. Were the Romulans playing a really intense game of monopoly and couldn’t be bothered to do ANYTHING for a quarter-century? Clearly.
3. Why didn’t the microwave emitter used by Scarecrow and Ra’s al Ghul kill everyone in Gotham city?
Ra’s Al Ghul’s master plan was to infect Gotham’s water supply with a super toxin, then use a souped-up microwave emitter that would vaporize the city’s water supply, thus releasing the toxin into the air.
But humans are approximately 57% water. So everyone in Gotham (including Ra’s Al Ghul and Scarecrow) would have boiled to death. Super plan.
4. Where did Edward Scissorhands get all the ice to create his majestic sculptures?
Honestly, the most perplexing question of all time — where does all of that ice come from? Does Winona Ryder steal it all from the nearest Costco?
5. How did Jeff Goldblum’s computer virus work on the alien computers?
Yes, the scientists say that most of our technology came from the alien ship, so it’s not totally unbelievable, BUT that ship crashed in Roswell 50 years ago. Is Independence Day really trying to say that the aliens didn’t have one software update in 50 years? REALLY.
