    Don't forget that they achieve it by using their good NUKEs while coward Brits wanted to hide behind the walls.

    Wil Smith??? lol
  • 19th October 2013 by Creamlord666
    Correction: White, healthy and handsome US-Americans always save the world.
Prometheus
Some people vomit after sleeping for two years. Other people simply do pushups. And those who sleep for 2,000 years just murder everything in sight.

    that dumbass husband of Shaw drank milk.
  • 31st July 2014 by agentdc7
    Maybe that engineer was pissed someone messed with his alarm clock. The black goo probably tampered with it.
V/H/S
Reality porn companies will pay you $50 a pop to commit a sexual assault.

    Great one, you beat me to it by...err, two years! My comment was gonna be "Porn sites pay money for random flashes of a girl's breasts gained in a sexual assault - after all there are hardly any porn websites and actors available in the United States legally."
Transformers: The Movie
There's only 1 female autobot. I'm no mathematician, but...

    Which is confusing, because there was one episode of the tv series that had a whole team of female Autobots.
Bad Ass
Trejo leaves his bag full of groceries in the cop's car when he has him pull over.

    LOL! He totally did!

The Engineer had no trouble figuring out how to open the airlock on the lifeboat.

    He's an engineer!
Total Recall (2012)
Quaid lands his airship on the UFB side of the elevator, yet when they reach the Colony the ship comes out of the Colony side.

Underworld: Awakening
Selena can land gracefully on her feet when falling straight down from extreme heights, but rolling off the top of an 18-wheeler just knocks her right out.

    also she she had just been awoken from cryo sleep
  • 14th June 2013 by Samson
    nice!!!
  • 9th March 2013 by NateSean
    In fairness, she wasn't prepared for the truck to stop.
Elysium
If they were able to reconstruct Kruger after having his entire face blown off, and they're able to cure cancer almost instantly, then it should have been trivial to put Max in a med pod to reanimate him.

    They didn't care about him, he wasn't worthy of that kind of care.
  • 3rd September 2013 by agentdc7
    I think they mentioned the brain had to be intact for it to properly work. But still, the idea of a medical machine that advanced is quite a stretch.
Cabin in the Woods, The
Sigourney Weaver is not acceptable as a fool sacrifice.
(1) Comments
  • 19th July 2014 by howler
    I was thinking that. Sacrifice her as a fool for any number of reasons. For going along with it, believing in its ability to work. She's also a fool for the fact her employees couldn't kill a major stoner.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Satellites can only be communicated with when you reach 3000 feet.

    HughesNet is built upon lies.
Pacific Rim
Detonating the core of a Jaeger causes enough water displacement to leave the ocean bottom exposed to the air briefly. Guess they weren't concerned about the ensuing tidal wave that should have wiped out the coast.

  • 18th April 2014 by kvn8907
    Well, that big ol' coastal wall has to be good for something!
Oblivion
The aliens seem to have a keen understanding for human ergonomics, style, interior design, and transportation.

  • 13th February 2014 by agentdc7
    Perhaps the alien scanned Tom Cruises mind to find a suitable living space.
Thor: Dark World
Nobody can hold Thor's hammer up except for Thor himself, and a dinky coat rack in a London apartment.
(1) Comments
  • 9th February 2014 by agentdc7
    I think nobody can "move" Thors hammer.
Super 8
In the 70s/80s, if your neigbor's kid made firecrackers and bombs, it was a tolerated annoyance. Today, the child is automatically a felony career criminal and a terrorist and sent to a juvenile detention center.

    What is sh!tty society we live in today. Paranoia everywhere...
Robocop
When Dick Jones enters the bathroom, zip up your pants and continue to pee.

    LOL! I wanted to say this learning, but I didn't know how to word it in a funny way.

    Brad Pitt, to be perfectly concrete.
The Counselor
Always carry wire cutters.

    Love this "learning" because it is exactly what I thought after witnessing what happened to Brad Pitt...
Prometheus
It's ironic that Holloway yells at Shaw for "endangering the mission" when she gets hit by the storm, considering Holloway's the one who rushed everyone out to the facility once they landed, instead of waiting until morning, and then took off his helmet in an alien atmosphere and likely triggered the activation of the biological elements in the black goo.

    The movie never really answers ANY question clearly - in general. I still suffer from infinite head-shaking-syndrome (IHSS).
  • 17th November 2013 by agentdc7
    That almost could be an explanation to why the black goo started leaking, even though the film never really answers that question clearly. Or any question for that matter.
Prometheus
The geologist's contribution to the expedition is pushing the ON button on his automated survey orbs.

    This one made me laugh pretty hard.
World War Z
Brad Pitt is the only person in the world capable of deducing that zombies avoid sick people.

  • 10th October 2013 by catmunch1
    Not even the sick guy the zombies ran around couldn't figure it out!
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
If Skynet understood how important boobs are, it should have designed T-X to look much hotter, like a Megan Fox clone or whoever was the equivalent in 2003.
(2) Comments
  • 30th September 2013 by hustyx
    Moreover, I think Kristanna Loken IS the equivalent of Megan in 2003.
  • 30th September 2013 by hustyx
    Skynet didn't know. It was T-X, who did as soon as she saw the ad. And she didn't really get the chance to go to Skynet's cradle and tell him.
Elysium
Anyone who doesn't live on Elysium lives in Los Angeles, the rest of the planet is unoccupied and unimportant.

  • 1st September 2013 by Creamlord666
    The whole planet is now L.A. I guess.
A Good Day to Die Hard
The director of this film did not see the first 3 films.

  • 28th August 2013 by bourbonphantom
    Haha, no I specifically excluded part 4. Even so, part 4 is still vastly better than this flop.
  • 27th August 2013 by Creamlord666
    You mean the first four films aye? Don't forget this incredibly stupid DH4 where hackers "hack" gas lines and program them to blow up.
Elysium
Kruger does not cause the GTR to flip by some sort of anti-gravity/magnetic super power, the way the trailer leads you to believe.

    Hehe. Good catch. That was what I was totally thinking.
