Lali ho! Out of sheer boredom (and the fact that I can't go game shopping 'cause the store's closed for Easter) I'm watching the Star Wars saga in sequence. And I've got to thinking about the multitude of plot holes in not only Star Wars but movies as a whole. We seem to tolerate a LOT of crap from the movie industry. Here's a good example or two. I admit that the reason behind the ommissions that create these plot holes are due to the backwards nature of the Star Wars saga, but even so. They just don't make sense. - As I mentioned in a blog recently, C3PO's memory is wiped at the end of Revenge of the Sith, but R2D2's is not. While it is feasible that his memory was wiped at some point in the 18-20 year gap between episodes 3 and 4, this is never shown so we must assume he retains his memories of the clone wars and the events of the entire prequel trilogy. With that in mind, R2 knows that Luke and Leia are related as he was there at the birth, and that Vader is their father. Why does he never mention it? Is it not important enough information to warrant a friendly FYI? Especially when you consider that when Luke is recovering from the Wampa attack in Empire Strike Back, when Han and Leia argue about the incident in the south passage, Leia kisses Luke and R2 is there. Luke understands R2's speech so why the hell didn't R2 just gently mention that he's tonguing his sister? - Qui Gon Jinn has learned the path to immortality, as stated by Yoda at the end of Revenge of the Sith. He is therefore presumably able to project his 'ghost' the same way as Obi Wan and later Yoda can. Where the hell was he for the entire 'Luke' trilogy? Or indeed any of the other films? You don't think that it might have been helpful to teach all Jedi this trick of yours, Qui Gon? Would've made Order 66 a LOT less effective. Coulda saved a lot of lives there, Qui Gon. Where were you? On a tea break? It's obviously not just Star Wars that suffers from massive gaping holes in the plot like this. The film industry is filled with crap like this. Full of problems. Cliches (IE: named characters nearly always survive alien invasion flicks), mistakes, little things that tear you out of that suspension of disbelief and sour the experienc just a little. What are the worst movie mistakes you've encountered? What ruined it the most for you? Was it a huge gaping hole in the plot? The camera crew being visible in an important scene? Or simply the fact that Jar Jar Binks existed? What pisses you off about the movie industry? Let's have your examples, I'm curious.
