    Which will strangely be free of pee.
The Land Before Time
Pterosaurs are herbivores when they are in the company of other herbivores.

    In fairness, even dinosaurs that were previously classified as herbivores are thought to have been opportunistic omnivores.
Into the Woods
Body Mutilation to get man. What message does that send to young girls

    That's how the story of Cinderella originally ended.

    Frankly I had a hard time seeing the downside. :p
Underworld: Evolution
If you're going to throw a blanket over her and put her in a metal container away from the sun, throwing paint over the windows is kind of overkill.

    Right, but she's in a storage container. The sun's rays aren't going to get through that, which means the paint scene was just a sexy Scott Speedman reel.

    its so u can take the blanket off
Godzilla (2014)
Some offices still require you to work despite the threat of giant monsters that fly by.

    @Agent: Seriously. I was outside in hurricane winds chasing shopping carts across the parking lot.

    @NateSean. Seriously?

    IKR give those people a raise

    I had to work in the middle of Hurricane Katrina. I highly doubt Godzilla or MUTO would change that. :p
Godzilla (2014)
Some dogs are strong enough to undo their leash off a tree. It just requires a life and death situation.

    I thought it was going to be real middle finger to Emmeric scene but I was glad they pulled back before it went too far.
Godzilla (2014)
When transporting a nuke, you will let a random solider hitch a ride on the train. Because what harm could that do?

    He had a special skill set. I do believe that overrode the "I have kids" line.
Godzilla (2014)
If its a one-on-one fight between Godzilla and a Nato, the audience doesn't need to see it. They only need to see the two on one match at the end. We can just show them a closing door or blurry news footage of the fair fights and not even bother telling them who wins.

    Personally, out of experience I was going to watch this movie coz I wanted to see Godzilla as the title promised. I don't want to see some Cloverfield rip-off with more drama then in any Desperate Housewife episode. There were some points when I hoped that Godzillas foot would suddenly crush trhough the ceiling and squish the shenanigan dialogue to pepples and continues to focus on the King of Monsters.
  • 23rd May 2014 by NateSean
    Personally I liked the way they kept it a fair blend of seeing Zilla and focusing on the people stories. It was a gutsy move for an established character and I think the people who like it are going to out number the critics on this one.
  • 17th May 2014 by agentdc7
    This one annoyed me the most. And they did it like 3 times. BTW they are called MUTO.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Putting the District's black market in a structure where even a blind Peacekeeper could find it instead of keeping it hidden is a great idea, what could possibly go wrong?
(2) Comments
  • 14th May 2014 by NateSean
    Okay, knock it off. The book and the movies are two different things and one should not have to read the book for the movie to make sense.
  • 9th May 2014 by Faar
    Read the book. The original Peacekeepers from 12 were actually turning a blind eye to the black market, since they were pretty lenient. This changed however with the arrival of Thread and his own army of new Peacekeepers,
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
A girl who had a panic attack at being chosen as a tribute suddenly has the focus needed to inject morphine.

    It's still a learning, thank you.
  • 9th May 2014 by Faar
    That's the point. This was even addressed in the book: she matured very much in one year.
Hancock
Frankenstein with Boris Karloff was released 1931. It was quite natural that time that a blonde, white woman - somewhat 5'7" and 120 lbs. - carried a 6'2" and 180 lbs. black guy to a hospital. Did she took the "black" entrance?

    Or for an interracial couple to be going to a movie together in the first place no less.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Not a single old dying person, in any of the twelve districts is willing to take the place of an innocent child in any the games. In fact, why would there be any children in any hunger games? Surely a parent would take their place instead or each district would have groomed a group of people in the art of self-defence for the games.

    Adults are not allowed. Read the book. Heck, read the Wikipedia pages.
  • 19th January 2014 by NateSean
    Because the normal games require children between 12 and 18.

Jurassic Park
An electric fence that's powerful enough to repell a dinosaur won't have any lasting effects on an 8 year-old boy.

  • 19th January 2014 by NateSean
    That makes even less sense.
  • 16th January 2014 by totallamp
    When dinosaurs touch fence they are grounded properly so get zapped more. That 8 yr boy was not grounded properly, hence survived, I think.
Hunger Games, The
Ripping off other movies and books will make your movie millions from mostly 13 year old girls.

    You do realize that just because someone else wrote a book that had a similar premise does not in fact make it a ripoff. Battle Royale is hardly the first book about people fighting to the death in an arena. Ever take a look at history? The original Blood Games faught during the Roman Empire?
Hunger Games, The
People that have not read the books do not understand plot nuances.

    Nor should they have to. Movies and books are seperate mediums and should stand on their own.

A mother in Panem will barely even flinch when her daughter is pretty much sentenced to die.

    In their defense, that's the life they're forced to live.
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
So, did Valtane die (as in the Voyager flashback episode), or *didn't* he? Because he was very much alive at the end of Star Trek VI.

    SciFi Debris covered that in his review. You should check it out.

    Maybe a doctor saved him after the virus jumped to Tuvok.
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
Sherlock Holmes, a fictional character, was apparently an ancestor of Spock's. Good to know.

  • 9th March 2013 by NateSean
    Or, as Sherlock Holmes was based on this person, Spock's ancestor may have been Doctor Joseph Bell.
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
Humans believe Shakespeare was one of them; Klingons believe Shakespeare was one of them... surely, that sort of thing has to be independently verifiable.

    I just can't wait for the new Doctor Who/Trek crossover comics to make a reference.
Underworld: Awakening
People in the future are apparently accustomed to giant Lycans jumping all over and around moving cars.

    Sort of justified by the opening scenes and the fact that the police have an alert for non-human aggressors.
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.

    nice!!!

    In fairness, she wasn't prepared for the truck to stop.

I believe I saw this movie before, but it was called "Blade 2."

    Except that Underworld: The Awakening was whiter than a polar bear convention in a snow storm.

    Go to sea. Catch fish. Can fish. Sell fish. Not terribly complicated.
