Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
Muggle parents will never question those pictures on their mantle of... well, their mantle.

    Or when the other muggles close to the Grangers ask about their daughter. They'll respond, Hermione, who?
  • 21st November 2010 by MusicManD
    All those classic memories... "Happy birthday to... who?"
  • 21st November 2010 by Meushell
    Or why pictures of them are off centered.
Jurassic Park
When you've created an island full of the world's most deadly creatures, never destroy the island with bombs or napalm or anything. Instead, just fly away and let it work itself out. It's better for the sequel that way.

    Both sequels were on a different island. :)
  • 22nd June 2012 by Jbm
    They used napalm at the end of the book though
Skyline
If you ever wondered what Independence Day would have been like without all the interesting characters and plot development... here you go!

    Independence day - interesting characters and plot development - really?
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
If you're about to be captured by a group of bad guys and you have the power of teleportation, don't bother- just run away.

    They don't confuse people who don't read the books as often as people seem to think. I read the books, but my family hasn't. Very rarely do they ask me to explain something.

    Muse: Actually, Ron and Harry are over 17 now, so the trace no longer works on them. Not sure if they mentioned that in the movie, but once the trace is gone the Ministry has no way of tracking you if you break the law with magic. Otherwise there'd be a lot of unregistered Animagi rotting in Azkaban.
  • 8th January 2011 by Muse
    Hermione is the only one that earned her apparating license. If Ron or Harry apparated I'm pretty sure that the Ministry of Magic would know and therefore be able to find them. Of course the film fails to mention this even though it was in the book.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
There is magic for everything, except lighting a candle. That still requires matches.

    Ah, but Harry is the one who took the matches from Bathilda and lit the candle himself.
  • 10th December 2010 by Hales
    Bathilda couldn't use magic because she was a snake. Duh. Plus, Hermione did create magical candle flames in the movie.
  • 25th November 2010 by Andershp
    They are working on it at Hogwarts :)

    'Talking Patronus' to be exact.
  • 7th December 2010 by Muse
    It's actually a Patronus Charm sent by Kingsley Shacklebolt. Although in the book it takes the form of a lynx.

Shouldn't wizard convenience stores sell replacement wands?

  • 5th December 2010 by MusicManD
    Sure, but why not Bic brand disposable emergency wands?
  • 29th November 2010 by TigerLily
    It's hard though, since the wand chooses the wizard, and no two wands are the same.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
Magic makes some pretty impressive tents, but very weird houses.

    It's not the magic's fault, it's just the magicians who have bad taste!
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
Magical medicine can cure falls from hundreds of feet, petrification, poison consumption, accursed possession, splinched limbs, completely removed bones, and any number of other extreme ailments... but a knife in the chest doesn't even warrant an examination.

    Well if you remember, the snatchers took Hermione's purse, so she doesn't have the potions anymore...
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
You don't need to bother explaining important details on screen. Surely the audience will know that eye in the door belonged to somebody previously. They'll read the book, right?

    They certainly better have!
  • 20th November 2010 by Eibhlinn Savage
    Yeah. And Harry plays with mirror shards because he's probably very vain.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
Dilapidated old houses will have creepy serial killer little boy rooms for absolutely no reason.

    Couldn't be Baby Harry's bedroom. That house was halfway blown up. No way it would still be electrified, pristine, and clean 16 years later.
  • 20th November 2010 by hello
    I think it was Baby Harry's bedroom. Unfortunately that's not quite as interesting.

Despite all efforts to show a character's fun, eclectic, and eccentric fashion style, she will ultimately be captured wearing a pair of overalls.

    well the overalls weren't exactly "classic" either, were they?
Star Trek Insurrection
If you want to make good cinema, whip the Trekkies into a frenzy thinking they'll get to see Data's evil twin again and then introduce Data's developmentally challenged twin instead.

    Wrong movie. You're thinking "Nemesis".
Star Trek Generations
If a Starfleet legend and hero dies in action helping you, don't worry about a fancy Starfleet funeral. Just pile some rocks on top of his body and call it good.

    Do you really want to be the guy who tells people that their childhood hero was alive all this time, only to tell them that you were inadvertantly responsible for his death at the end of the story?
Jurassic Park
Petrified mosquitoes are not rare at all and were present in all stages of dinosaur history.

  • 9th August 2010 by NateSean
    And in large enough quantities that they could clone entire herds of dinosaurs no less.
Fourth Kind, The
After you go crazy and are interviewing on a television program, zombie makeup really helps your credibility.
