Default Dumb moments in good movies

I was watching Terminator 2 about 10 minutes ago and just realized how dumb a scene towards the end of the movie was. The T-1000 stabs Sarah Conner in the arm and demands she calls out for John. Yet earlyer in the movie it is established both he and the other Terminator can mimic other voices perfectly. Then 5 minutes later, he just morphs into her and does exactly that, calls out for John.

Can you think of any dumb logic in what is generally considered "good movies"?

Oh my god I was watching T2 last night and that same exact thought occurred to me. Seriously weird that I just had that identical revelation now after all the times I've watched it.

So by dumb I guess you mean fallacies/plot holes rather than poorly written moments (like the ending speech of the Dark Knight).

(Credit for this goes to HISHE)

In Jaws, Hooper states that he can't get the little needle through the shark's skin to inject poison and kill it. Why didn't they just get some fish and pump them full of poison and then feed it to the shark and poison it that way instead of the risky cage-in-the-water thing?

oh well, it's still my all time favorite movie.

I never knew what that was. I thought it was chattering teeth in a bag?

I thought in Xmen First Class it seemed ridiculous that Moira would keep firing at Magneto . I guess you could argue it worked as a diversion but it got to the point where I was ready to yell stop at the screen.

How about in the Dark Knight when Grumpy turns the gun on Bozo (The Joker) and then gets hit by the bus? Did the Joker plan for him to turn on him and then get run over in that exact second? Also did the other school buses not notice when the school bus pulls into the line from out the side of a half destroyed building?

Doc Ock throwing a car through the restaurant at Peter and Mj. He didn't know Peter was Spider-Man and he needed Peter so why try and kill him

Batman had half of his cape deployed (using the arm he wasn't carrying Rachel with), hence why they were spinning as they fell.

That's a good one


Fast Five involves suspending a lot of disbelief but the most absurd thing has to be when they flip the prisoner bus to rescue Dom . Bus flips a hundred times and Dom is uninjured.

The fact that the Statue of Liberty wasn't actually used for fighting in Ghostbusters 2. I love both films, but I always found that a little stupid

Transformers 2 when they use the piece of the all spark to bring that old transformer guy to life instead of using it to bring back Optimus Prime

In Batman Begins. Bruce Wayne refuses to be an executioner, declairing the criminal should be dealt with by more legitmate means in court.
30 seconds later he blows up there base with everyone inside barring his buddy, who is worthy of life. Because they are bro's.

That was really the only way he could get out. He couldn't fight them all.

Then when his bro is no longer bro, he doesn't have to save him.
He saves the Joker though because he is immovable, even though he's moved.

Not saving someone is different from throwing someone over a building ledge and letting them fall. Thats killing someone.

Killing is making choice! And tonight, (even though you already have) you're going to break your one hypocritical, throw out the window rule!
