War of the Worlds (2005)
You're completely in control of the situation, and nothing says it louder than giving the window a peanut butter sandwich.

    Best comment of the list so far. This deserves to be #1.

Ignoring Yoda and Mace Windu had no negative effects whatsoever

    Quite to the contrary...Anakin was only trained because Obi Wan and Qui Gon ignored Yoda and Mace Windu. Yoda attempted to mitigate the issue by allowing Anakin to be trained; he hoped that Anakin receiving official training would be better than Anakin receiving training from Obi Wan, ostracized by the Jedi Order.
Star Wars: The Phantom Menace
The magical mystery of the Force is revealed to be the equivalent to mere microscopic bugs.

    Midi-chlorians are translators, not hosts of the force. "They continually speak to you, telling you the will of the Force. When you learn to quiet your mind, you will hear them speaking to you."

    All the time I thought of the Force like some kind of psionic power - Telepathy, Psychokinesis and ESP - but no, it has to be lame organelles which sound like mitochondria for some even lamer reasons. G. Lucas must have spent some time in a waiting room reading medical magazines while waiting for his brain cancer treatment.

    The force is not spiritual. It's biological and Aryanistic!

    I could see how someone could see that scene as insulting, given the fact that it was a native american gift shop. Couldn't it have been a gift shop not related to a specific culture?

    It may be a pre historic version of "hambawa"
Star Wars: A New Hope
Say it with enough bravado, and you can bluff people into thinking parsecs aren't a measurement of distance.

    Does "interesting backstory" also mean "after the fact apologist excuse"? :-)
  • 23rd December 2014 by IceLord
    So not in any way poor research by the script writers or a case of them plucking a 'scientific sounding word' out of a text book....

    I always thought a parsec was a root vegetable. Oh, yea, that's a parsnip.

    Actually, the Kessel run is a length of space near a huge black hole. Having a really fast ship would allow you to cut down on the distance between the beginning and end of the run without being pulled into the black hole. So what Han said was actually some serious boasting about the speed of the Falcon even though he used a measure of distance to make his point. Do a search on the Maw for interesting backstory.

Nothing is as magical as a boy's wish...except an Apache helicopter.

    Nothing is more POWERFUL than a young boy's wish. Except an Apache helicopter. An Apache helicopter has machine guns AND missiles. It is an unbelievably impressive complement of weaponry, an absolute death machine.

When you say, "It's not my fault," you don't expect a follow-up question.

    "What do you mean?"

    Hopefully, there wasn't first hand experience to make the comparison.

    Has a lot to say about Government even in the magical world!
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2
You would think Harry would at least use the Elder wand to fix his broken one before implausibly snapping such a powerful thing in half...

    That's what you get for using plastic chain.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
You should always use a once in a life time "golden ticket" for what could be a day of free candy, instead of selling for thousands to help your poverty ridden family.

    It's the only way to beat the "no win scenario". As Kirk once famously said, "I don't like to loose".
