Movie oddities that make no sense
X Men The Last Stand
. If you ve seen this film then you know that Phoenix AKA Jean Grey literally crushes and tears everything and everyone apart. Sadly, in the final scene, where Wolverine kills her and saves the world, she s business as usual but she fails to rip off one thing and one thing only Wolverine s pants. Even his auto healing skin is about tobe ripped from his adamantium frame but his pants won t retreat no matter what! From what are they made of?
The Usual Suspects
. We re not about to ridicule one of the greatest movies ever made with one of the best endings in film history. Nevertheless, we can t help but notice that Keyser Soze wasn t all that bright after all. Think about it: the man spent hours and hours in the police station talking with the cop, showing his face, when a faxed picture of him could ve arrived any minute.
. Seriously, why didn t Skynet just send more Terminators to finish the job? First it sent A Cyberdyne Systems series T 800 Model 101 Terminator, who failed miserably, and then it had to wait over a decade to send the liquid T 1000 who didn t manage to finish the job either. Why couldn t they send a dozen Terminators to make sure John Connor was dead?
Terminator 2 Judgment Day
. In the first Terminator movie, its explained pretty clearly that only objects made of organic tissue can time travel, which is the main reason why Kyle Reese and the Terminator are both naked when they arrive. The problem is that T 1000 is made entirely of liquid metal and therefore has no tissue matter, so how was he able to time travel?
The Shawshank Redemption
. A question I always have after watching this amazing movie was Who put the poster back in place after Andy s incredible successful escape? How exactly did he reattach the poster from inside the tunnel after going in head first?
The Karate Kid
. In this classic 80s film which made Karate a major trend among youngsters we hear again and again how kicking your opponent in the face is illegal and won t be tolerated by the tournament s officials. However, Daniel san beats Jonny in the final with the legendary crane kick to the face, becomes a champion, and gets the girl too. So what? Just a minor little detail as long as it s the good guy doing the face smashing, right?
The Butterfly Effect
. When Evan asks his cellmate to look at his hands for proof that he can time travel, he then travels back to when he was a kid and stabs his palms. He now has marks on his hands as proof. But if he got those marks when he was a kid he would have had marks on his hands when he went to jail, no? So the marks being there wouldn t have proved anything to anyone but Evan himself if you think about it.
Return of the Jedi
. This is not just another oddity but probably one of the greatest blunders in modern film history: the Empire builds a second Death Star with the same incredible design flaw a straight path to its reactor that if blown, destroys the whole station.
Star Wars A New Hope
. Wasn t the existence and identity of Vader s children supposed to be a secret? Why, then, did Luke have the name Skywalker, and why was he raised by Anakin s own family in a place that Anakin himself visited and knew about?
. I happen to be one of those people who really loved Skyfall despite all the criticism it received for not being a typical Bond film. However, I noticed a few oddities in this superb film with the main one being Silva s ridiculous plan. It would take us pages to analyze all the steps of his ludicrous plan but we can t help but wonder: Did he really want to kill M or just cry like a baby in front of her for what she did to him? All you needed was a bullet Silva, not all this illogical and unnecessary drama.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes
. It looks like the chimps and apes from the zoo became intelligent as well. but they did not get the virus from the canisters. Does that mean the virus evolved to be airborne? Maybe the intelligent monkeys somehow transmitted the virus personally to the dumb monkeys but this is not explicitly stated in the movie.
. Remember the scene where Joe Cabot s gun is aimed at Mr. Orange, Mr. White s gun is aimed at Joe, and Nice Guy Eddie s is pointed at White? So the shooting happens and everyone goes down. But who shot Nice Guy Eddie? Rumor has it that this inconsistency was discovered by Quentin Tarantino almost immediately after the scene was shot but he apparently liked it so much that he left it in for film geeks like us to chew over.
. These aliens are head and shoulders above humans in technology and could travel across space and track us down in order to steal our natural resources, but were defeated by a lil virus because their systems were somehow compatible with our technology. Hmmm.
. Where do the flyers come from that are in the bags that are carried out of the vault and into the van? Danny and Linus couldn t have taken them down there. Moreover, there s no room with the Chinese man. They are carried out to the van before the SWAT team appears, which means they had to have been in the vault to start with. Even Steven Soderbergh admits in his commentary that there s no explanation for this scene.
. In Limitless Bradley Cooper is a loser writer who takes a pill that makes him the smartest man in the world for as long as its effects last, that is. However, we can t help but wonder why he thought it was a good idea to borrow money from a mobster and get in trouble if he was really so bright?
The Lost World Jurassic Park
. When the boat lands in San Diego the crew is already dead even though the T Rex is still trapped in the cargo hold. So who killed them? According to Steven Spielberg there was a deleted scene that showed a raptor escaping the ship on its arrival.
. Grease is a movie musical about teenage life in
. 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? Really now?
. 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 a 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. Excuses, excuses.
. 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?
