  1. The loop holes were cool. For the toy story one I heard from a interview with a creator that buzz has a safety setting or something and that when people are around he automatically doesn’t move to survive. Lol

    And the Harry potter one while it doesn’t explain it in the film but in the book I believe that she gets it taken away cuz she’s not planning on using it for school purposes. Also if I remember right it took her a long time to get it approved.

  2. For the “plot holes” that actually mattered.

    The toys in toy story freeze on instinct
    because theyre toys.

    Aladdin wished to be a prince, which is just a title so its only necessary genie make people think hes a prince.

    Hermiones time turner is taken after the year she used it.
    Time turners were all eventually destroyed in the battle for the ministry.

  3. I attempt to solve the plot holes

    1. Buzz assimilates with the other toys in doing so. OR maybe toys physically can’t move around humans, they have to learn how to do so. Since Woody has been a toy much longer, he is able to do so.

    2. Rules of time travel are always weird. I’m gonna call this one. Since Marty doesn’t go back in time until his late teens, he couldnt have already interfered with his parents, thus at that time they have no memory of him. When he finally does return, everything is changed, they all of a sudden will have a memory but will shuffle it off to the side. Being in a miserably world and then a happy world would be a shock to them subconsciously, thus not caring that Marty looks kinda like Calvin.

    3. Its Waterworld, where to they get food or fuel. You can make paper out of leaves and husks. If they have plants growing on a barge somewhere, like to grow the tobacco they are smoking, then they can have paper. (i never actually saw this movie)

    4. Santa Magic, part of the gift is parents remember getting it.

    5. His first wish made him a Prince, Jafar stripped him of that title when he became a genie. He then debated not about being a prince but changing the laws of Agraba.

    6. Not a plot hole but an oversight in a characters plan. One that if used in real life, could also work. These are high school girls, not Sherlock Holmes. Plus, she’s been in the school for a whole year at that point, not hard to collect photos.

    7. Rules dont specify kicks to the face, junior karate rules vary by league.

    8. I’ll assume this one has to do with earths position relative to the sun. Or Magic. These are fictional creatures, take your pick.

    9. When they leave in the beginning, the guy says he’s fixing the phones. It may not be on the first day, but the day after, maybe.

    10. Ministry of Magic regulates Time Turners, they must not be used for serious meddling. Dumbledoor must of called in a lot of favors to let Hermione use one and then not get her in trouble at the end. Either way, it is taken away. They are all destroyed in book 5, before Voldemort is “officially” back (thank you Cody)

    11. I got nothing on this one. Still a great scene though


    • Nice touch with the video.

    • To 11, it’s a different side of the road, isn’t it?

  4. I can’t remember the exact line, but in The Karate Kid, as Daniel is walking to his first tournament fight, Ali explains to him that he can kick to the head, ribs, and sternum.
