MOVIE QUIRKS THAT MAKE NO SENSE
Added on: 23rd Mar 2016
At the end of this magical Tim Burton film, we all see Edward carving
ice sculptures in his mansion. Just one small detail though:
Where did he get the ice from? Last time we checked the movie’s
setting was in a very warm climate and Edward’s little home
definitely didn’t have a freezer.
In one of the most iconic movie scenes in history (the legendary
bike scene) E.T. clearly showcases his ability to levitate objects
and himself. So the question is why didn’t he levitate himself at
the beginning of the film back onto his spaceship?
Citizen Kane is one of the best films ever made and the moment
Charles Foster Kane says “Rosebud” in his deathbed is one of
the most iconic moments in movie history. However, have you
thought about the fact that there is no one to hear him say this
iconic word since his maid enters the room a couple of seconds
after his death? Since no one but the audience hears him say
“Rosebud,” there is no reason for a reporter to search for
meaning in a word no one in the film heard him say.
This happy animated movie, which made Owen Wilson’s voice
likable to millions of kids (and adults) around the world, has a
serious flaw: In a world built along human lines, but inhabited
by cars, who built it? Cars?
During the climactic confrontation in the original movie, Batman tells
the Joker (played by Jack Nicholson), “You killed my parents.”
The Joker’s response is that he was only a kid when he did that,
which pretty much means he knows Batman’s secret identity, which
should significantly change our view on everything that’s happened
before and after between Batman and the Joker. So either we have
to deal with an oversight here or the Joker is just giving the
standard answer he usually gives in such circumstances. It’s your call!
The spaceship that was supposed to bomb the Tree of Souls could
have simply bombed them from a higher altitude where the flying
creatures could not breathe. There was no reason for it to fly that low.
After the initial skirmish, it takes the aliens a long time to crawl into
the ventilation shafts so they can infiltrate the colony HQ from above.
So the logical question is why didn’t they just try to bash the doors
in? How hard could it have been for them, really? According to
Cameron’s commentary they did destroy the doors but the scene
ended up on the cutting-room floor due to time constraints.
In 1999 there was a flick that changed the way we see films thanks
to its unique scenario and stunning visual effects. Of course,
we are referring to The Matrix, which, despite its undeniable
awesomeness, had a few inconsistencies with the most glaring
one being that since you need an “operator” in the real world to dial
you in and out of the Matrix, how did Cypher manage to enter,
meet Agent Smith, betray his buddies, and then return to the
real world as though nothing happened?
