We all love a good story told on screen, but some films leave us screaming for answers. When savvy and eagle-eyed audiences spot an inaccuracy or a solution that can be solved simply, it ruins the illusion these films strive to create. How many of these did you spot in these plots?


One Reddit user asked: What movie has a plot hole that cant be ignored?


What's up Doc?

Giphy

In his chalkboard diagram Doc says that he and Marty can't go forward in time from the alternate 1985 to get the Almanac because they would just end up in an alternate 2015, but if that's the case then how did Biff bring back the DeLorean to them in the first place after altering history himself in 1955?

This Did Not Boldly Go Over Well

Giphy

In Star Trek: Generations. Picard goes into The Nexus, which allows him to leave at any point in space and time. Why not go back five days instead of five minutes? He could warn his brother and nephew about the fire, play along for the next few days, and look like a genius when he uncovers Dr. Soren's plot. Kirk doesn't need to be involved.

Before someone mentions shagging with the timeline, the star exploding already happened, all those people already died, or otherwise Picard wouldn't reach The Nexus. To save everyone, he has to make a new timeline where no one dies. If that's the case, what's two more people?

A Beast Of An Issue

Giphy

How old is the Beast when he was cursed and where are his parents?

In a nutshell, the bratty prince answers the door and the witch curses him because he was totally rude to her. They explicitly say that when the prince turns 21 years old, the curse cannot be unbroken. HOWEVER, in the song "Be Our Guest," Lumiere establishes that they have been cursed for 10 years ("10 years we've been rusting / Needing so much more than dusting / Needing exercise, a chance to use our skin").

Ergo, the bratty prince in the prologue is no more than 11 years old when he was cursed!

The parents are obviously not included in the story. Where are his parents? Why did a witch bother cursing an 11-year-old when pre-teens are naturally selfish and sassy and often grow out of it when they get older? That witch needs some thicker skin if she's going to go around cursing pre-teens (who are probably orphaned?) for mouthing off or a lot of kids are going to get cursed.

Shhh...Ignore The Sound Of Rationality.

The amount of electricity available in A Quiet Place.

They would need some serious generators to keep their security cameras, iPods, radio, safety lights running every day/night and generators make a lot of noise.

Also, just live by the waterfall.

This Drove Me Crazy

Giphy

Silence of the Lambs.

Lector is so dangerous they have to put him in a fortified gym surrounded by the military (ironically with their guns facing out). But to watch over him day-to-day INSIDE the gym they assign two doddering geriatric security guards who he easily overpowers and kills to make his escape.

Last Jedi Got On My Last Nerve

Last Jedi. Why the light speed kamikaze lady couldn't just have told the rest of the rebels the plan is beyond common sense.

A Harry Plotter Hole

Giphy

James and Lily Potter could have been their own Secret Keepers as Bill and Arthur Weasley showed us in the deathly hallows. There was no need whatsoever for Peter Pettigrew, Voldemort would have never found Harry Potter.

Waterworld... Paper is the most valuable resource next to dirt. People smoking cigarettes through the entire movie.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
