    In Back To The Future 3 the main problem is the Delorean Marty went back to the wild west with has a fuel leak, so they can’t get it up to 88mph.

    But at that point Doc has already put his Delorean in the mine, the electronics were broken, but presumably it still had fuel in it.

    The new movie, “Shaft”, is a sequel to the 2000 movie “Shaft”, which is a sequel to the 1971 movie "Shaft” and has three characters all called John Shaft.

    I look forward to 2027’s new version, Planet of the Shafts.

    Look dude. I like you and all that. You seem a pretty cool guy.

    But if you talk about "shitty writing" again, or disparage Back to the Future again I will fucking cut you.

    How did John Doe originally plan on finishing his murders in Se7en?
    It was just convenient how envy and wrath were wrapped up but if Mills and Somerset hadn't been assigned the case?

    I think maybe any film involving time travel is exempt as we all know they can be picked apart like crazy. And yes, Infinity War has time travel but it was more of a rewind the tape affair than a create multiple branches stylee

    So I watched Infinity War again the other day, and it occurred to me, the bit where the bug lady from Guardians of the Galaxy is mind melding Thanos, whilst Doctor Strange and Iron Man try and take the gauntlet off him - given that he's basically unconscious and not fighting back then; why don't they kill him? Or at the very least cut his arm off? Strange could do one of the portal thingies on his head or neck then close it, like what happened to Thanos' mate's arm, earlier in the film.

    Missed opportunity that, tssk.

    Yes, that was a surprise. Especially given, as you say, they set it up earlier in the film.

    There is no chance in hell coach Tony D'Amato could have pulled off the trade for Steamin Willie Beaman to the New Mexico Aztecs.

    The Miami Sharks would have franchise tagged the shit out of him.

    He ran away from home because his mother molested him.

    Molested Marty also went back in time and he took their incest baby.

    That baby became Biff.

    Looper

    Joe goes back in time to kill Cid because Cids men kill Joe's wife in the future because Joe killed Sara in the past while trying to kill Cid as a child.

    But young Joe only meets Sara because of the above so actually non of it should have happened in the first place.

    Or something. Fuck time travel

    In Episode VII Kylo Ren stops a blaster shot with the force, but that's not how the force works!
    And I should know, I've seen the other films!

    Yeah, with his robot hand...

    Anyway, I wasn't being serious, I remember vizzini I believe losing his mind over that one detail...

    Serious one though:
    Terminator 1

    The cyborg killing machine has Sarah Connor cornered when she and Reese smash headfirst into a wall with their car and he is right behind them. Cops also arrive and surround them ordering to freeze. And the Terminator? He's gone! They sly devil...

    Why didn't he just walk over to Connor and rip her head off then and there?
    If they ran the cops would have probably shot her for him and it's not as if he's intimidated by police as he decides to murder their HQ just a few scenes later...

    Not a flaw as such, but I always wonder how the Queen alien managed to get onboard the ship at the end of Aliens.

    It looks as though she comes out of the loading bay which surely would have been shut when Bishop was hovering around by the platform.

    She was hanging on the back - but wait, how did she survive the vacuum of space when they always kill them by blowing them out of air-locks?

    It's the compartment that holds the landing gear. The queen jumps in when the drop ship landing gear gets caught up in debris leaving the platform.

    Yeah that's what I always thought too!

    Btw, somebody only told me this years after seeing the film, but Queen takes Bishop! :)

    Green Goblin doesn’t aim for Macy Gray in the first Spider-Man.

    Suppose that’s why he’s the villain though.

    How come, in the classic JCVD film Double Impact, Jean Claude plays twins who have the same accent, the same body type and make the same sound when they do cool shit like a flying roundhouse kick? Does he think we're mugs?!
