Hey Pandas, What Is A Plot Hole That You’ve Noticed In A Book Or Movie? (Closed)
I hate it when you notice something that just doesn’t make sense. What is the one that is always on your mind and bothers you and slowly drives you crazy?
In Toy Story, Buzz didn't think he was a toy, but a space ranger. If he didn't think he was a toy, why did he freeze like the others when Andy came?
Any movie where cannibals keep people alive, but cut off parts to eat. If you're eating an animal, you kill it; you don't cut off limbs. Being alive uses energy, so the longer the victim lives, the less meat the cannibal gets. I know the filmmaker wanted to create a horrifying scenario, but it's too stupid.
In addition to steve barnetts post.
If you time traveled back like 4000 years the earth would be in a different positioning then it is now. You would need a time-and-space machine .
Anything involving time travel. Time's not like a DVD, you can't just press rewind or fast forward.
I read this one in a novel by Spider Robinson. In Citizen Kane, Charles Foster Kane dies while alone. So how does anyone know that his last word was "Rosebud." No one was there to hear it. The whole plot completely falls apart.
Since Peter Pettigrew shunk into a rat, leaving his clothes behind, couldn't the Ministry of Magic just look at his clothes and say "Oh Peter Pettigrew isn't dead"? Also since McGonagall and Sirius didn't leave their clothes behind, why did Peter leave his behind?
Signs (Movie, 2002). Aliens attack the earth. Those aliens can be fought and/or killed with water. Why did the aliens choose earth, over 70% of the surface covered with water, clouds and rain and stuff, roughly intelligent inhabitants who also consist of a lot of water?
Okay, so this is a TV show, not a movie. Season 7, Doctor Who. Amy and Rory's farewell. The Doctor couldn't go back in time and take them away in the TARDIS because of the paradox, but he could have gone and visited them! Instead he was like "Oh my god I don't want to cause a paradox so I won't go and bring you back. I could go visit you though... but I won't because this episode needs to be sad :D" What I'm basically saying, is I hate Steven Moffat.
The sequel trilogy in star wars. If Rey gave the coordinates to Exegol to the resistance fleet, then why didn't Palpatine just give it to the entire first order.
I know this is a bit different but there is one book that I read it made me so frustrated. The way it ended left TOO many questions needing to be answered. I thought it may have been a sequel but NOOOO, the author has no plans on writing a follow up. So because of that I will NEVER read John Marsden books ever again.
Why didn't Voldemort just stab Harry when he was a baby? I know he's all about style but he could have just stabbed him at any time
Another one is that in the Artemis Fowl MOVIES, since Root is now a woman, Holly now isn't special in any way, since a Commander is a higher rank than a Captain. Yet, Holly is still a main character.
There were these two shows I watched. The first one was a horse riding one and ended with one girl's leg broken and not being able to ride horses again(at least, I don't know- the show just ended there.). The second show is about a fairy in the human world and falls in love with a human(to clarify, she's also human-sized). It ends with her being taken away from him. So yeah, both endings sucked.
The series isn't finished yet, but who was the scavenger on Pantala and where did they come from? (Wings of Fire: The Hive Queen)
In Avengers Endgame, two, TWO, geniuses didn't think of the idea of just going back in time to when there were still Pym Particles. They could've had unlimited chances to get the stones!!! It's not even that hard to think of, considering one of the geniuses is a talking Build-A-Bear and the other invented time travel in one evening.
why doesn't cinderella just run away
Fred and George had the Marauder's Map for years. They checked it a lot. They saw their little bro Ron sleeping with a man named Peter every night. They didn't bring it up or judge him.
Avengers end game; no shield agents in the fight and only fury at the funeral
*Sorry, I have a lot of Harry Potter ones:*
- If Harry Potter was a horcrux, why didn't he die when he touched the sword of Gryffindor or got bitten by the basilisk?
- Dumbledore told Harry that nothing can reawaken the dead. But oh look, here's a time turner that can apparently bring back Beaky from the dead.
- I know that Daniel Radcliffe was allergic to the green eye contacts, and had to roll with blue eyes, but 'Harry, you have your mother's eyes' became even worse when Lily's actress had brown eyes.
- Dunno if this counts but HARRY! DID YAH PUT YAH NAME IN DA GOBLET OF FIYAH?!?!
- Why couldn't Harry see the thestrals from the beginning? He had already seen other deaths.
The Hunger Games is a great series—full of action, love, and suspense. However, with every series like this, there comes plot holes and inconsistencies. First off—in the first novel, why did the Careers not kill Peeta after the found Katniss? It seems like he would have served his purpose. Also, if there are so many modern conveniences of Panem—why are people still going down into mines? Yes, I know that their district is the “mining district”, but they could find a better way of doing this.
Darth Vader: I must find my son and bring him to the Dark Side.
Darth Vader: Oh look, there appears to be someone with the last name 'Skywalker' living in my relative's house on my home planet. Maybe I should go look- nah, just a waste of time.
Not from either, but from Undertale. If the humans sealed the monsters underground with a magic spell, then why does the book in Snowdin say that humans don't have magic?
Who did Snape betray, he killed Dumbledore, but did Dumbledore tell him to, or did he foresee it?
In the 1974 film "Juggernaut" (one of my favorites - has a great cast) a bomber has placed seven identical sealed oil-drum bombs on a cruise ship during a refit, and contacts the head of the cruise line to demand a huge ransom. The ship is already a day out of port and experiencing rough weather with 200 passengers and crew aboard. A team of Royal Navy bomb experts is airlifted to the ship to disarm the bombs. As they carefully dismantle the bombs, they discover that each has a 'temblor' switch as part of the mechanism, which supposedly would set the bomb off if it is jarred too much. My question: why didn't the bombs go off when they were loaded onto the ship in the first place?
Easy. Harry Potter didn’t see the thestrals until *Spoiler* died. What about his mother? Everyone tells me that he just doesn’t remember it, but I believe that some kind of conspiracy is going on.
In the first Twilight.
First Edward couldn't even stand a few drops of blood in biology, but when he visits Bella in the hospital after the car accident, he sits right on Tyler's bed. Tyler, at the time, was wrapped in bloody bandages.
Later in the book, when James calls Bella pretending to be her mother to talk to her, why can't Alice hear the conversation and know it's James? They were in the same room and vampires can hear over 3 miles away...????
Warriors is just one big plot hole. Multiple books are being written at the same time by different people, so I can’t be as harsh, but couldn’t the authors just..... Talk to each other more?
Somehow cats randomly disappear, appear but aren’t listed in the allegiances, or are listed in the allegiances but are dead or not present through the entirety of the book. And they can’t decide what the cats actually look like. Is Squirrelflight an orange tabby, or a dark red cat with a white paw? Is Tawnypelt ginger like her mother or is she a tortoiseshell? Come on, people, decide already!
And how can a cat have blue or green eyes when it’s genetically impossible for them to have blue or green eyes, because of their heritage?
Another thing that bothers me is how they write about the growth of kittens. In the books, kittens are out of the nursery with bright eyes and bushy tails three days after they’re born, when in reality they don’t open their eyes until they are around one week old and certainly can’t walk until they’re three weeks old. They can also immediately tell the permanent eye color of the kittens, which doesn’t make sense because kittens are born with blue eyes.
Apparently, in Warrior Clan Land, six-month old kittens are half the size of adult cats, even though irl adult cats are only very slightly larger than 6-month-olds.
Sorry for the long answer, Moonkitti made a video about cat retcons so please go check that out if you wanna know more.
