Nitpicking the Movies/ Biggest Plot Holes

Re: Biggest plot holes

I'm fairly forgiving when it comes to plot holes in movies, most of the time it has to really stand out to bug me.

But the biggest plot holes of all time must be in the Highlander sequels, I've said it before and I'll say it again:

If your tag line is "There can be only One" and in the end of the movie there is only one.... Think really, really, really hard about whether there needs to be a sequel!
I was similarly disappointed when the Never Ending Story came to an end. But then sequelitis set in. Strange there wasn't a TV spin off. Or maybe there was, but it never made it out of Germany.
 
Re: Biggest plot holes

What about Independence Day? Wow, alien mothercrafts have computer ports that just happen to hook up to the computer geek's laptop? And the alien's software just happens to be compatible with his operating system? And, with all their advanced technology, the aliens can't even install an anti-virus system against a quickly put-together virus? I'm amazed the spacecraft can even fly! Oh, and how does the virus attack the ship? In today's world most viruses are harmless on other operating systems like the linux-based Ubuntu and Linspire!

But who cares, really? Before LoTR, Independence Day was my favourite movie of all time! :D

The Microsoft/intergalatic compatability in Independence Day was kind of so far past it was funny but it was just as lucky that the aliens designed their fighters close enough to an american fighter plane that Will Smith only had to have one small fender bender before being able to fly it like an expert.

But by far the most annoying bit in ID for me was when Will Smith's girlfriend and her dog jump through the open door just as the explosion passes by, completely ignoring the new opening.

Similarly in The Day After Tomorrow, where the main character is on the steps of the library, he sees this huge wave coming down the street, he then runs out helps the girlfriend and doesn't he go back for something as well? Either way he had enough time sit down and rewrite the script before that wave finally turned up. (I suppose they're probably not a plot holes but they did bug me).

Did they ever explain why in Deep Blue Sea the sharks had no sense of smell? There's a scene where LL Cool J (beat up and probably bleeding) is being followed by a shark and runs into the kitchen, we then get a sharks POV as it swims up to the doorway and decides to go left for some reason?

One last one, in Spider Man 2, Doc Oc is told by Peter's friend that if he wants to find Spiderman he should go see Peter. Doc Oc doesn't know Peter is Spiderman yet he turns up on the scene and throws a car at the head of the only person who can lead him to Spiderman?

If Peter hadn't been Spiderman and wore the car head-on, Doc Oc was going back to Peter's friend to ask him for his second best lead...

Man, how did I miss that one?
 
Re: Biggest plot holes

The second and third "Blade" movies were completely hopeless messes of worthlessness, but the first was good enough that a singular problem like this is actually worth mentioning: Deacon Frost's ceremony required twelve purebloods, and it was said so several times. But his girlfriend killed one of them after they were all lined up in position, and the ceremony stilled worked, and there didn't seem to be a "missing person" gap in the circle formation they were standing in. Did they have backups waiting to be shoved in there just in case one was lost to impulsiveness like that?
