okay well, first things first folks, major ***SPOILER ALERTS*** on this page, so if there’s a recent film you haven’t seen yet but really want to, I would recommend you stop reading ***IMMEDIATELY***… okay everybody good? Crisis averted? Okay great, we may now continue.
Who doesn’t love the movies eh? That’s right, NOBODY. And if you say you do well then, sorry but you’re a liar. What can be better than sitting in a dark room for 2 hours eating junk and being transported to a magical land with all your famous besties? Basically, nothing to be honest.
But as with many things in life, the things we love are often the things that hurt us the most, and that is especially true in movies. You know what I’m talking about… a plot twist here, one sequel too many there, cringe-worthy dialogue, it can happen to even the most prestigious blockbusters.
Don’t believe me? Well, thanks to the help of Buzzfeed, I’ve compiled a list of some of the most well-loved movies of the past few years… and their major flaws. So if you’re not ready for Up to be ruined for you… I suggest you stop reading now. Sorry, not sorry!
1. In Mamma Mia, Donna basically said that her mother was dead, but a huge chunk of the sequel was about her very-much-alive mother, played by Cher:
2. In A Quiet Place, the monsters killed anything that made noise, yet Evelyn and Lee decided to have a baby, something that would literally only make noise:
3. In Hocus Pocus, Max, Dani, and Allison could have just surrounded themselves and the book in a circle of salt to prevent the Sanderson Sisters from getting them:
4. In Monsters, Inc., Mike said that he and Sully were friends in elementary school, but in the prequel, they didn’t actually meet until college:
5. In The Karate Kid, it was made clear that hitting an opponent in the head would lead to disqualification, yet that’s exactly how Daniel won his fight:
6. In Signs, the aliens came to earth, a planet comprised of 71% water, but their only weakness was… literally water:
7. In Aliens, Ripley opened the airlock door and was somehow able to resist the force and pressure of outer space, all while holding onto a ladder with one hand:
8. In Ant-Man and the Wasp, no one noticed Hank’s giant lab that would mysteriously appear and then disappear at random parts of the city, even though he was trying to be discreet while hiding from the FBI:
9. In The Little Mermaid, Ariel signed her name on the contract with Ursula, so she could have just written her name in the sand to tell Eric what was going on:
Rather than blame Disney though, I’m gonna blame Hans Christian Andersen… seeing as he’s the one who wrote the original story. Or I’ll just stick with the idea that Ariel had no idea what was, therefore, no idea that she could have written her name in it. Yeah… that works for me.
10. In 17 Again, the kids had no idea what their dad looked like when he was younger (and Maggie almost made out with him), despite there probably being several pictures of him scattered throughout the house:
11. In Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones was actually irrelevant to the whole plot because the Nazis still would have found the ark no matter what:
Because no matter how you spin it, it is completely true. He didn’t need to be there, not that I wasn’t glad that he was. They even debate the matter in The Big Bang Theory… so if you’re looking for anybody to yell at, I suggest you get in touch with those guys.
