Terrible plot devices in films

There it is! :smiley:


Yeah, there are a few different themed skins on there. Shameless theft as far as I can see.

ah fuck you, I was just photoshopping this! :smiley:


I didn’t understand this scene for years, but I think what’s happened is that the rifling on the bullets is different meaning they were fired from different guns, hence he doesn’t have a match and can’t solve the crime.

My apologies.

(I was thinking of doing an alt account for it but time was of the essence)

yeah clearly

please enjoy my effort anyway


Sounds like you’re the only great mouse detective around here!

I totally agree with you, although, the bit where they go to Kevin Spacey’s flat is not planned by the killer and that alters his plan, so i’ll let the film off…because i love it.

For the wonderful picture mostly, but also for this factual response.

The Core does that as well but you get the feeling it was a joke there.

Windows 95 being compatible with the alien tech in Independence Day because of Jeff Goldblum.


Any film in with the protagonist googles the plot applies to this. It happens quite a lot. Some ghost film and the scared yet resilient heroine visits her local internet cafe and type in ‘poltergeist’ into a search engine.

All jokes about Charlize Theron’s inability to run to the side…

The bit in Prometheus where Idris Elba tells the two pilots to sacrifice themselves by flying their ship into the Alien’s ship and they don’t even question it. They actually start smiling and say something akin to “well, I’ve had a good life I guess” or some shit like that. Absolutely infuriating. I actually have a friend who went on a date with one of those actors and I really wanted to meet him to grill him about how awful that scene was (sure that would have done wonders for my friend) but alas it never happened.

And don’t get me started on the hard man at the lunch table who becomes absolutely terrified when they get down to the planet only to befriend some weird alien snake thing moments later. Ridley Scott - FOM8!

*Edit - I’ve opened a can of worms here haven’t I?

Because you posted this I thought I’d post this :grinning::joy:



What’s this now?

The whole film of Prometheus is ludicrous.

Inexplicable character actions.

SFX look bonza though.
