No one has yet to explain how Indy and Henry teleported across Europe


They somehow covered a distance of about 1000 miles with no food, resources, transportation and the entire German Army was actively hunting them down. That is one of the biggest plot holes in the history of cinema yet no one talks about it.

reply

That is one of the biggest plot holes in the history of cinema yet no one talks about it.


Wow! Strange they didn't show that, even if the trip was totally uneventful and unworthy of filming or watching for that matter, but that's not the biggest "plot hole" in the history of cinema.. The biggest is that they didn't once show Indy or Henry Sr. taking a shit. Come on, everybody takes a shit once in a while.

Thanks for pointing that out. Keep 'em coming!

reply

It is a big deal because when he last leave Indy and Henry they have no way of getting to Hatay which is over a 1000 mile journey then in the very next scene they are somehow half across Europe, unless you want to tell me that Superman gave them a ride that is a huge plot hole and a huge problem in a movie filled with problems.

Good movies don't have problems like this.

reply

No, I agree with you! They definitely should have shown that uneventful trip and Indy and Henry taking a shit!

The movie clearly doesn't work without either. Maybe in a director's cut perhaps.

reply

We didn’t need an eventful trip we just needed an explanation which we didn’t. This would be just like we see Luke Skywalker destroy the ATAT then the next time we see him he’s on Dagobah getting Jedi training from Yoda. It’s a plot hole and a serious one. You are right though this movie doesn’t work at all, from the plot holes to the Mickey Mouse jokes

reply


Dude, I agree with you, although I'm sure there's those snooty types that will say that we don't know what the fuck a "plot hole" actually is. Dicks.

They absolutely should have shown both the uneventful trip or a two second explanation of it PLUS Henry Jr. and Henry Sr. taking a shit.

Of course, maybe the Jones' didn't eat...

reply

Well at least you’re man enough to admit that I’m right

reply

Is that what you took from that?

reply

We are not having this discussion to talk about how many you are

reply

Funny you say that cause I have read a lot of Marvel comics and in not one of them do any of the characters pee or poop. I guess that means they all are extremely constipated.

reply


I heard that in an early issue, it was planned to have Superman leave a deuce in the phone booth while he was changing into the supes costume but the editor nixed it. Of course, it would have just been the ramblings of a drunk at a cocktail party telling wild stories I suppose but I know I heard it somewhere.

reply

I personally though do not think a movie needs to show someone using the bathroom unless it is done for comedy like that funny scene in Dumb and Dumber where Harry uses the toilet that doesn't work.

reply


Heheh.. that was funny..

reply

I watched the movie tonnes. What part are we talking about? Like minutes in so I can look it up. Not saying your wrong just need a refo point.

reply

It's definitely in the second half of the movie but right after that really dumb scene where the birds take down the German fighter Indy and Henry are now stranded in the middle of Germany with no transportation, money, etc. then it cuts to a very cringe worthy scene where Donovan bribes the Sultan of Hatay, then in the very next scene Indy and Henry are somehow in Hatay, huge plot hole.

reply

I will check it out, and get back to ya.

reply

You are wrong.

reply

No I am not wrong, it’s a plot hole

reply

I don't think it is. Why is it so hard to believe they made there way to another country off camera?

reply

Ask him about Bruce Wayne getting from the pit (in some unknown third world country) and then back to Gothem in an extremely short amount of time in Dark Knight Rises; the hypocrisy of his answer will blow your freaking mind.

reply

But now I'm going in mind pre-blown.

reply

Well, I would not send someone into hostile territory without warning. I don't interact directly with that person because we have a history and he is not worth me getting banned over; but I was shocked when I saw this post a mere day after both me and him got off our suspension and the first thing I see is him posting this nonsense which is in direct conflict with his opinion on this same 'issue' in Dark Knight Rises. I could not believe the hypocrisy when I saw this post. Literally insane.

reply

But do you think it even is a plot hole? Last crusade I mean.

reply

not really; there is an undisclosed amount of time that takes place in between the 2 events and the distance was not that great. From Berlin to Iskenderun Hatay is 2000 miles and they were likely much closer than Berlin since they had already traveled in the Zeppelin and in the plane at least a short distance. They could have easily stolen another car and got there within a few days (no more than a week).

In Dark Knight Rises I do consider it a plot hole because Bruce was literally in the middle of nowhere and had no ID and no resources; and he had a set amount of time to get back to Gotham before the bomb would go off. So he many thousands of miles away and has no money, no ID and in the middle of nowhere. In 1938 there was not much ID screening for travels in the same way; so Indy and Henry could more easily get on to trains and such (like they did with the Zeppelin). In the modern era to get on nearly any form of travel between countries you need an ID or it will take you many months to walk across the border or get travel papers.

reply

That is not to say that Last Crusade is a perfect film; it is quite a flawed but enjoyable enough movie. I don't understand the obsession the OP has with the Mickey Mouse joke; sure it wasn't funny but it had no impact on the plot and it was a single less then 1 second line of dialogue. Talk about over blowing it much.

I really can't believe the hypocrisy out of this guy. go over to the Dark Knight Rises board sometime and see his defenses of that film; then compare it with his obsessive nitpicking he does with Last Crusade.

reply

Because they made an over 1000 mile journey in a matter of hours with no explanation, the last time we saw them they were completely stranded, the next thing we know they are in present day Turkey with Sallah, that gap in the plot needs to be addressed and it is a huge issue. The only explanation is that Superman gave them a ride but Superman doesn't exist in this universe so that idea is out. As I said earlier it would be just like if we see Luke Skywalker blow up the ATAT then the next time we see him he is on Dagobah being taught by Yoda. It's a huge problem in a movie filled with problems they are literally in the middle of nowhere with an army actively hunting them down and then they somehow teleport right to where they need to go.

Now some have pointed out that the same problem exists in The Dark Knight Rises when Bruce escapes from the pit but those are two completely different situations because 1) Bruce had 23 days to get back to Gotham, Indy/Henry had 1 day at most, 2) There was a village right next to the pit and Bruce very easily could have gotten a ride to the nearest US embassy and they would have taken him back to the US, Indy and Henry were stranded in the middle of hostile territory, if they ask for help they will be arrested and executed, 3) It was well established in Batman Begins that Bruce was able to move around the world quite easily and was able to establish contacts, this was also before he became a master of theatricality and deception and was the ultimate badass, the same cannot be said for Indy/Henry, so overall the comparisons to TDKR are fallacious.

This was a HUGE problem in Last Crusade but a non-issue in The Dark Knight Rises (that is if you actually pay attention)

reply

"so overall the comparisons to TDKR are fallacious."

how in the hell do you figure it is fallacious? the circumstances are almost identical. In both they have to travel a great distance in a short amount of time with little or no resources. Just calling something "fallacious" does not make it so.

reply

How were they supposed to do that? They were stranded in the middle of enemy territory with no resources, as far as what we can gather from the film they walked the thousands of miles to Hatay which is preposterous. Any way you slice it it's a plot hole. Some people have suggested than an invisible car came out of the ground that can travel 250 mph but since there's no evidence in the film to suggest that it's just fan fiction and baseless speculation.

reply

They're resourceful folks.

reply

It takes more than just being resourceful to be able to travel 1000 miles in one day with no explanation, that would require supernatural abilities and Indy and Henry do not have supernatural abilities based on the rules established in this universe.

reply

see what I mean about deluded answer? Where did it state in Last crusade there was only 1 day that took place in between the plane attack and them being in Hatay? I mean sure if we just make up restrictions everything can be a plot hole. But I guess those of us that paid attention know this.

I didn't realize a U.S embassy would just take a person on their word that they are a U.S. citizen with no documentation and just escort them back to the US and famous billionaire maybe they would; but pretty sure the media would be made aware of the extraordinary circumstances.

Where was it established in Begins that Bruce could travel around the world with no resources in less than a month. in Begins there was not a disclosed amount of time he was traveling in Asia. So there is wiggle room to fill in the gaps.

In Rises when he is lost in the middle of nowhere (supposedly it is in India) getting back into a locked down Gotham with no money, no identification and literally no resource in 23 days is one hell of a stretch. then taking hours to build a big fire symbol when a bomb is about to go off.

So From what I gather, Indy and Henry have no excuse but Bruce Wayne does because.... Wait for it.... "HE'S BATMAN". you can make a satire out of the deluded conclusion here.



reply

I’d also like to add that some people will state that there it wasn’t established how much time it took Indy and Henry to get to Hatay well here’s the thing: they make it there as quickly as the Nazis do and they found out where the grail was as soon as they captured Indy at the castle so of course they are going to go there immediately. Also if you pay attention after it was established that Henry and Indy are stranded in hostile territory the next scene shows a sunrise implying it’s the next day and that’s when Donovan is in Hatay an about to go get the grail then in the next scene Henry and Indy are magically in Hatay. The dark knight rises does not have problems such as this, everything that happens in TDKR is consistent with the rules and abilities previously established the same cannot be said for LC

reply

"the next scene shows a sunrise implying it’s the next day"

Dude; seriously you're literally are making up facts based on your interpretation of what a sunrise means in context of the film. There is NOTHING to indicate from the narrative that it was the next day. You just making stuff up to fit your interpretation of a single frame. Where in film itself does it say it was the next day? unlike your supposed perfect film which specifically states he only had 23 days to get on the other side of the planet with literally no resources and not a single piece of identification.

reply

"soon as they captured Indy at the castle so of course they are going to go there immediately."

but they had time to collect treasures and the Rolls Royce and bring it into the Sultan in less than a day? But I am sure you paid attention to that; that's what I like aboutcha, nothing gets passed you.

reply

Also I would like to add that even if it wasn’t the next day (which the film implies it was) they somehow made it there at the same time the Nazis did who did have transportation and were not being hunted down. Now as far as Batman goes he had 23 days to get back and knowing what had already been established about him it was well within his character to be able to make it in 3 weeks. Plus as I said earlier there was a village not too far from the pit so he was not stranded in the middle of nowhere unlike Indy and Henry. It’s quite odd someone would compare these two scenarios as they are completely different.

reply

":some people are just stupid"

right back to insults I see, a 7 day suspension was not enough.

The circumstances are almost identical; the fact you don't see this is just an indication of your deluded opinions.

reply

"which the film implies it was"

So now the film is only implying it; before you were stating it as a fact. man your arguments have the "consistency of tangled up Christmas tree lights dipped in yogurt and acid" - MauLer

reply

"Plus as I said earlier there was a village not too far from the pit so he was not stranded in the middle of nowhere unlike Indy and Henry."

It doesn't freaking matter that Bruce was next to a Village; so were Indy and Henry (as indicated by the freaking roads and tunnels they were just driving through. they weren't in the middle of a dessert like environment. There is no indication that Bruce would get help in that village he was close by and there is no indication that village was even populated. It looked abandoned from what I could tell. You ever been to a third world country? I have, it is not so safe or easy to just ask someone for a ride. Bruce would know this danger and likely not ask for help unless it was from a trusted source, and there was no indication of such a source being close by.

Your conflicting arguments between these two situations in these films is just unbelievable egregious.

reply

I’ll also add that some people would say that Bruce could not have gotten help from the nearby village however they have nothing to back up that the village wouldn’t help him so therefore it’s logical to dismiss this idiotic assumption. However Indy and Henry were in hostile territory it would have been too risky to ask for help because for all they would know the people helping them would be Nazi sympathizers and would double cross them, also I didn’t see a village nearby when he last left Indy and Henry. As it stands this is still a major problem with LC but it remains a non issue with TDKR. I have a feeling people who deflect to TDKR are too cowardly to defend their own movie that they have to invent problems with another, much better movie to justify the plot holes in LC, it’s quite pathetic. Also as far as the blimp goes they were on the blimp for the amount of time that it took them to have that idiotic and pathetic excuse of a heartfelt moment which was four minutes maximum, they were definitely still in hostile territory, heck clearly the Nazi fighter planes had jurisdiction

reply

" therefore it’s logical to dismiss this idiotic assumption."

unlike your idiotic assumption that only one day passed for Indy and Henry between Berlin and Hatay; which is based on... well nothing but a sunrise shot.

" Bruce could not have gotten help from the nearby village"

And it's not an idiotic assumption that he could get help from an unknown nearby village. What if they were sympathetic to Bane or the Taliban or some shit. freaking hypocrite.

"have nothing to back up that the village wouldn’t help him"

You know nothing about this village; from appearances you don't even know if it was populated. It looked abandoned in the frame they showed. Freaking idiotic assumption. It was right next to the pit that Bane controlled. The people may have been Bane Loyalist for all Bruce and you knew.

"would be Nazi sympathizers and would double cross them"

shows how much you know about history; there was very few Nazi sympthizers by that time; especially in Austria and southern Germany. Most people were just afraid of Nazi's. Nice of you to assume most Germans were Nazi sypathizers though. I am German (I moved to the U.S. as a child) so I actually take direct offense to this assumption. Most people freaking hated the nazi party by that time but were terrified of them.

"I have a feeling people who deflect to TDKR are too cowardly to defend their own movie "

Nope, just pointing out your hypocrisy. I already acknowledge Last Crusade as a flawed movie, about equally as flawed as TDKR (both are a 6/10 maybe at best 7/10) Only deluded fanatics think either film is perfect

reply

The thing regardless of whether it was one day or two days Indy and Henry somehow managed to get across Europe with no explanation in the same amount of time that it took the Nazis to (who had planes) therefore even if it wasn't the next day it still remains a plot hole, even though the film certainly implies it was the next day. It would make sense that it was the next day considering Donovan and Elsa would immediately go to Hatay as soon as they found out where the grail was. We see them stranded in the middle of freaking nowhere then the very next time we see them they have traveled almost 2000 miles, that's a major issue.

As for Bruce there is no reason to think that the village would not have given a guy who was clearly stranded a ride to the nearest port, embassy, or wherever so he could get back to his home country, considering it was never established that the village was loyal to Bane. It is logical that the village could have helped him, the people claiming Bruce got back to Gotham with no explanation need to prove the village wouldn't have helped him and not just throw out empty speculation. Haters of TDKR also love to try to shift their burden of proof, they are the ones stating that Bruce got back to Gotham with no explanation (in a hell of a lot more time that it took Indy and Henry) but since they claim it's a plot hole they have to prove that the village didn't help him therefore since they can't prove it they haven't proven their case that Bruce got back with no explanation. As for Henry and Indy it was clear that they were in enemy territory, it would have been beyond idiotic for them to risk asking someone for help in a country whose army was actively hunting them down, the Nazis definitely would have killed anyone who helped Indy and Henry so even if someone wasn't loyal to the Nazis they wouldn't have helped them out of fear. Regardless of whether anyone nearby would or would not have helped him is a non sequitur, Indy and Henry had a reason to not trust anyone living in the nearby area so therefore it would be illogical for them to ask them for help. Also I'd like to point out that some people love to play the victim when they get boxed into a corner and defeated by logic, it's quite interesting.

TDKR:
- It took Bruce 23 days to make it back to Gotham
- There was clearly a village nearby that could have easily helped him
- It was established that he was able to move around the world with ease and it was established that he has the ability to blend in with his surroundings which wouldn't make stowing away on a plane or boat too hard

Last Crusade:
- Indy and Henry travel thousands of miles in a day
- They were literally stranded in the middle of nowhere in hostile territory with the enemy actively searching for them.
- It was never established that either of them had the ability to move around the world with ease nor that they had ninja abilities.

Overall, TDKR has nothing to do with this discussion and it's odd someone would bring it up, even if TDKR has problems (which it clearly doesn't) that doesn't excuse the many problems of LC

TDKR is a relatively flawless movie, LC is a godawful piece of garbage.

reply

"the film certainly implies it was the next day,"

sunrise does not by default mean next day; it just means time has passed and now it is going be a scene taking place in the morning. The burden of proof here is on you to prove that sunrise by default implies one day has passed (I am sure bible thumpers are going to love you contrived explanation and proof you try to conjure up here)

"that it was the next day considering Donovan and Elsa would immediately go to Hatay "

Mable but it would take time to transport the Nazi squadron they had. You don't move that many people and supplies in a day, especially since there was war going on and you are a hostile force. It is just insane and devoid of any logic to assume only one day took place and there is literally zero proof of this claim.

"no reason to think that the village would not have given a guy who was clearly stranded a ride to the nearest port, embassy, or wherever so he could get back to his home country,"

There is no indication that they would or if there was even people there. baseless assumption. You don't seem to understand how the burden of proof works. You are the one making the claim here and I am pointing out the hypocrisy in your claim (burden of proof falls on you, idiot).

" it would have been beyond idiotic for them to risk asking someone for help"

why would they ask for help when they could steal a car? they already did it once, it can be safely assumed they would do it again. Burden of proof is on you to prove they have no way of getting to Hatay in less than a day; it is only an 8 hour drive and they didn't need to cross any bodies of water. it is a straight drive with roads (even in the 1930 there was roads). Unlike in Dark knight rises in which he is clearly not in the U.S. or canada. Can we assume he was in Mexico? Maybe if it was Mexico he could get back to gothem in 23 days but how would he get across the border without identification on without the media attention?



reply

"- Indy and Henry travel thousands of miles in a day"

it is exactly 2000 miles from Berlin to Hatay; that is an 8 hour drive. and they would have been much closer based on how long they traveled on the Zeppelin (it was not 4 minutes as you baselessly claim). So at worse they were 6 or so hours drive away.

"They were literally stranded in the middle of nowhere in hostile territory with the enemy actively searching for them."

They stole one car already that day; why can't it be assumed they would do that again? Burden of proof is on you jackass

" It was never established that either of them had the ability to move around the world with ease nor that they had ninja abilities."

doesn't take ninja skills for Indy to punch someone and steal their car.

"Overall, TDKR has nothing to do with this discussion"

Again your main gripe with Last Crusade so far has been this 'plot hole' and the micky mouse joke. If it is a plot hole in LC then it is an even more blatant plot hole in DKR; you can't have it both ways. It is more egregious in Rises but the situations both heroes were in are very, very similar; only Indy and Henry only had about an 8 hour drive away (at worse); Bruce we have no idea how far or what resources he would use to cross into another country by modern standards.

"TDKR is a relatively flawless movie, LC is a godawful piece of garbage."

Why, because you say so? prove it douche, you have neither proved TDKR is flawless nor have your proved LC is garbage. If anything they are about equally flawed films.

reply

The thing is a sunrise definitely implies the next day, and there is really no indication that a lot of time has passed in between Henry and Indy being stranded and Donovan/Elsa arriving in Hatay, in fact as previously established Donovan/Elsa would have immediately gone to Hatay after discovering the map so there's really nothing in the film to indicate that a lot of time has passed meaning Indy and Henry somehow made it thousands of miles with no transportation in a very short amount of time. Regardless of the amount of time they arrived as quickly as the Nazis did which is ludicrous and this remains a plot hole.

It really wouldn't have taken that much time for the Nazis to make it over there, it's quite simple actually, they get on a plane and go there, Indy and Henry however it seems walked the thousand some miles and anyone who thinks that it would take just as long to fly than to walk needs to be lobotomized.

But the thing is haters of TDKR claim that Bruce making it to Gotham is a plot hole therefore they need to prove that the village would not have helped him beyond a reasonable doubt, I have yet to see that evidence so therefore there is no justification in saying Bruce couldn't have made it back. More baseless assumptions on the part of TDKR haters. I also see no evidence that Indy and Henry stole a car, anyone who says they did is engaging in fan fiction. It is also not an 8 hour drive, going 60 mph (in this imaginary car) it would have taken them multiple days considering they would have to stop and ask for directions frequently. The force doesn't exist in this universe so they can't use it to guide them, but none of that matters considering there is no evidence they stole a car, yeah it's still a plot hole in LC. It is not however in TDKR because the film gave him 23 days to get back and knowing what we know about Bruce that isn't an issue for him, plus there was a nearby village that easily could have helped him (unlike the imaginary car).

Some even claim that to travel 2000 miles it only would have taken 8 hours in an imaginary car but that would have required them to travel 250 mph which is nonsense. There is also no evidence that they stole a car so therefore that cannot be proposed as a reason, since there is no explanation it does remain a plot hole but again anyone who paid attention during the course of The Dark Knight Trilogy would know it is not a plot hole in that case.

reply

"The thing is a sunrise definitely implies the next day,"

Proof? I say it only implies time has passed and it is a new day; not necessarily the next day.

"there is really no indication that a lot of time has passed in between Henry and Indy being stranded and Donovan/Elsa arriving in Hatay,"

okay, maybe it was 2 days. It could have even been 1 day; they Hatay is only an 8 hour drive from Berlin. Last time I checked there are 24 hours in a day. and they were much closer than Berlin.

" Indy and Henry somehow made it thousands of miles with no transportation"

less than 2000 miles and do cars not exist in Europe in the 1930? motorcycles? It is a freaking 7 hour drive at worse. dude, you are freaking just impervious to reason and evidence. incredible.

"Bruce making it to Gotham is a plot hole "

Maybe not a plot hole per-say but it certainly stretches believably; especially given the adherence to reality the rest of the series feigned.

" I also see no evidence that Indy and Henry stole a car, anyone who says they did is engaging in fan fiction"

They literally just stole a car while trying to escape the plans. That happened in that very scene. What the hell are you talking about.

"It is also not an 8 hour drive,"

Sorry did the math wrong. it is a 33 hour drive from Berlin to Iskenderun. but they were definitely much closer than Berlin since they were on the Zeppelin for at least a couple of hours hence them sitting at a table eating and drinking.

"in this imaginary car"

Why is it imaginary, they literally just stole one car in the previous scene; why is it wrong to assume they would not do that again?

"it would have taken them multiple days considering they would have to stop and ask for directions frequently"

Wow; that is assuming they didn't know the way to get there nor basic directions. So asking for directions every few hundred miles takes a one day drive and turns it to multiple days? How many days does it take to ask for direction

reply

"n TDKR because the film gave him 23 days to get back and knowing what we know about Bruce that isn't an issue for him"

23 being on the other side of the planet with no ID (and also the media does not find out)? No that is definitely an issue. Batman can't fly and doesn't have super speed. but the biggest issue is we just don't know where the pit is. If it is in Asia; there is no way he gets back to Gotham in 23 days, no way not without some ID and being able to take a plane.

" plus there was a nearby village that easily could have helped him "

Where is the proof anyone was in the village? Where is the proof anyone would help him?

"(unlike the imaginary car)."

dude Indy literally just stole a car in the previous scene. there is more than one car in Europe you know. WTF?

reply

It's quite strange that no matter how many times you explain that the sunrise implies the next day and that Donovan would have gone to Hatay as quickly as possible it just doesn't get through to some people, that and the fact that even if they were correct it wouldn't matter because Indy/Henry made it there in the same amount of time it took the Nazis and they did not have any transportation. They even continue to claim it's only an 8 hour drive to make it 2000 miles but that would require them to travel at 250 mph, yeah I don't think so. With what we know about Bruce however it is well within reason that he could make it back to Gotham as he has ninja training and was able to make it around the world with no problem even before he received said ninja training, so in the rules established in Batman Begins what happens in TDKR is perfectly consistent, the same cannot be said for LC. These people even continue to claim Indy/Henry stole a car yet can't provide any evidence of said car, it's rather odd. Plus google map didn't exist back in 1938 so they definitely would have had to stop frequently to find out where they were, how to get to Hatay in their made up car.

Some of these people also need to learn how a burden of proof works, if you are going to claim that Bruce couldn't have made it back to Gotham in 3 weeks then you need to be able to prove the village DIDN'T help them, since I've seen no proof that the village wouldn't help them then I reject the assertion that Bruce couldn't have made it back, this is 2nd grade logic so it's quite odd that someone would be confused by this. But then again these are the same people who think invisible cars just magically appear out of the ground LOL

reply

" that the sunrise implies the next day "

Proof? No wrong it implies time has passed and it is a NEW day; it could mean the next day but it does not mean it IS the next day.

"Donovan would have gone to Hatay as quickly as possible"

sure they just had the rolls royce all ready to go. sure.

"They even continue to claim it's only an 8 hour drive to make it 2000 miles but that would require them to travel at 250 mph"

Outright lie; I already corrected myself on this, liar. it would be 33 hours from Berlin to Hatay; but they were likely closer that.

Some of these people also need to learn how a burden of proof works, if you are going to claim that Indy and Henry couldn't have made it to Hatay in an undisclosed amount of time then you need to prove they were incapable of stealing a car or finding some other form of transportation. Hypocrite.

"since I've seen no proof that the village"

You have no proof that villagers even exist; a village can be deserted. What language do they speak there? what if none of them speak English? This assumption Bruce got help form unshown villagers is just asinine and without one bit of EVIDENCE. You made this claim that he got help. Burden of proof is on you for this.

"this is 2nd grade logic so it's quite odd that someone would be confused by this"

don't you dear use the word logic; nothing you have ever said has been inspired by logic; this is blasphemy as far as I am concerned.

" same people who think invisible cars just magically appear out of the ground"

WTF are you talking about. in 1935 there was 300 cars per 1000 people in Europe. Cars existed in large numbers by the 1930 jackass. They would find one within about 5 miles give or take


reply

"clearly explain that it doesn’t even matter if the sunrise implied the next day or not"

What are you serious; that is is the basis of your entire claim of it being a plot hole. My goodness; this is like saying "god exists" then when proven to be a false claim that is not provable they say "it doesn't matter if god exists or not". Yes it does matter that is the basis of your argument that they could not travel from where they were to where they got in that amount of time. And you have the audacity to claim I don't understand logic, you couldn't even define it without google. Your concession is noted

" clearly their elementary school teachers"

your concession is noted and your ad hominem is dismissed.

"Donovan would have just chilled out and given Indy a chance to get to Hatay"

So you are claiming Donovan and the Nazi's had the rolls royce on standby in Hatay for when they arrived?

"despite the fact that he knew where the grail was and had the map, very odd"

Doesn't matter he did not go there alone, he went with a Nazi squadron; that takes time to move them during war time without them being attacked. Logic, use it sometime please for the love of god.

"amount of time Indy and Henry spent in that blimp"

Your claim was they were only on the blimp for about 4 minutes. I proved this false by pointing out they were at a dinner table eating and drinking which suggests many minutes passed if not hours. Unless you think the first think they did after take off was get a table. Logic. USE IT.

"invisible car "

300 cars per 1000 people in Europe at that time. They could a car fast.

"can go 250 mph"

I already acknowledged multiple times that I was wrong on the math and that is was 33 hours from Berlin to Hatay. You concession is noted and your lie is dismissed.

"I guess when you get owned mentally people just make stuff up."

You concession is noted; your false claim of "owning me" is dismissed.

reply

"they refuse to acknowledge the village that is clearly visible when Bruce exits the pit"

Another lie, I acknowledge the village was visible; but no people were shown. You refuse to acknowledge there is no way of knowing who if anyone was at the village.

"it’s been established Bruce can speak multiple languages"

Oh, so are we to assume he can speak ALL languages? I am Filipino by ethnicity. The Philippines has over 10,000 dialects alone. Logic, use it sometime. what a ridiculous assertion.

"gain they just make the rules up as they go to keep their heads above water."

seriously, you just made up rules about Bruce being able to speak multiple languages and 'therefore' can speak the language of the unseen villagers. The level of logic bending and assumption here is just crazy high.

"entertaining to watch their temper tantrums"

Not as entertaining as seeing you wiggle your way through one hypocritical statement ridiculous attempts at logic; like a tiny little worm.

"A) it wouldn’t make the problems of LC go away"

True; but I am not claiming it is NOT a problem in LC; you are claiming it is not a problem in Dark KNight Rises and I am simply pointing out how hypocritical and full of crap you are.

" there is enough evidence and logic that can connect Bruce escaping the pit"

false claims does not equal evidence; for either film. I have made not one assumption based on zero evidence you have. big diference.

"his invisible car that sprouts from the ground and goes 250 mph they keep talking about"

300 cars per 100 people in Europe in 1938; look it up, it is a fact. And I already admitted I did the math wrong. Your concession is noted your lie for the fourth time is dismissed.

What’s even more odd is even after you clearly explain that it doesn’t even matter if the sunrise implied the next day or not they will still argue that non sequitur , clearly their elementary school teachers did a horrible job teaching them basic logic. What’s further proof is they actually think Donovan would have just chilled out and given Indy a chance to get to Hatay (which would have taken at least a year considering as far as what the film tells us they had to have walked) despite the fact that he knew where the grail was and had the map, very odd. Not only that but refuse to concede their epic failure in math even after they’ve been debunked and won’t acknowledge that the amount of time Indy and Henry spent in that blimp was the amount of time they took having that cringe worthy, poorly written, pathetic excuse of an emotional scene (the amount of time they were in the blimp was definitely less than 20 minutes). It’s hilarious that LC is apparently over their head. They will even go on and on about this invisible car that can go 250 mph even though the film gives no indication of such a thing existing, I guess when you get owned mentally people just make stuff up. What’s even more pathetic is they refuse to acknowledge the village that is clearly visible when Bruce exits the pit and that it’s been established Bruce can speak multiple languages, but again they just make the rules up as they go to keep their heads above water. But what is the most obvious sign that they are getting dominated is when they start using profanity and pitching a fit like a toddler, but it’s entertaining to watch their temper tantrums . Ultimately the best word to describe these people is pathetic

Again this comparison with TDKR doesn’t make a whole lot of sense because: A) it wouldn’t make the problems of LC go away and B) there is enough evidence and logic that can connect Bruce escaping the pit to his return to Gotham that is if you pay attention, the same cannot be said for Indy teleporting across Europe or using his invisible car that sprouts from the ground and goes 250 mph they keep talking about

reply

Again they don’t understand what a burden of proof is, if they are going to insist the village was empty they need to prove it yet they don’t, very pathetic. And even though it was firmly established Bruce could speak multiple languages they will still not acknowledge it just for the sake of their poorly thought out argument. The truth is it was established that Bruce could speak multiple languages in Batman Begins and even if he couldn’t speak the language of the country he was in it is their burden of proof to prove he couldn’t and since they can’t they have not proven their claim that Bruce couldn’t have gotten back to Gotham. No one ever “made up the rules” that Bruce could speak multiple languages, this was in the movie, silly haters.
Ah yes I forgot that they once again will use childish insults (like the dialogue in Last Crusade) as “tiny little worm” when their argument has been debunked, the temper tantrums these people throw are hilarious.
The truth still remains though that this discussion is about Last Crusade and even though this is not a problem in TDKR even if it was it wouldn’t make the problems of LC disappear, these people love deflecting and diverting attention away from their failed arguments when they lose, it’s so pathetic and boy are they obsessed with this invisible car that grows out of the ground that goes 250 mph. In order for their argument to have any weight to it that had to have happened in the movie and since LC gives no indication that happened it remains a plot hole, yet these people still insist that said car exists
Does anyone out there know what I can do to help these people? I’m thinking electroshock treatment and the psych ward, but are there any better solutions?

reply

These same people will even strawman you when they get backed into a corner with logic. They will try to claim that the sunrise (which is often used in film to indicate the scene takes place the next day, much like how like the Eiffel Tower is used to indicate the scene is in Paris) is the basis of your whole point of Indy and Henry arriving in Hatay being a plot hole when you clearly explained 5 times that they arrived the same day the Nazis did and that there was no explanation how they literally went from the middle of nowhere in hostile territory to all the way across Europe. These people are very sad and have very poor debate skills.
They will then start to steal your dialogue because they are not smart enough to come up with their own comebacks such as “your concession is noted”
The strawmans will continue and they will claim that you claimed some bizarre assertion about Donovan’s Rolls Royce when you never even mentioned it. The fact still remains that as far as the movie is concerned Indy and Henry had to have walked almost 2000 miles and therefore the amount of time it would have taken Donovan to load his plane up is irrelevant because even if it took days he still should have arrived in Hatay long before Indy and Henry.
Despite the fact that you have clearly explained that Indy and Henry’s pathetic excuse of a father/son talk began as soon as the blimp took off and the blimp turned around as soon as that “talk” was over which adds up to about 4 minutes (give or take) they will still insist that they were at the table for far longer even though this stupid movie never implies that.
They will still not even admit that they don’t’ understand basic math which is quite odd considering they have been debunked and humiliated repeatedly.
Again they don’t understand what a burden of proof is, if they are going to insist the village was empty they need to prove it yet they don’t, very pathetic. And even though it was firmly established Bruce could speak multiple languages they will still not acknowledge it just for the sake of their poorly thought out argument. The truth is it was established that Bruce could speak

reply

Probably stayed at some bed n breakfasts. Grabbed some waffles and sausages along the way. Had a few run-ins with those pesky Nazis. Until they arrived at the canyon of the crescent moon.

Yeah but still that's all speculation. It's a plot hole no matter what.

"It's a plot hole no matter what."

Well nice to see you are reasonable and open to being presented with EVIDENCE. What does sand taste like when your head is that buried in it?

reply

I have provided plenty of evidence kid.

reply

" kid."

can't help being a condescending prick can you? You provided no evidence only bullshit. "the sunrise shot proves it was next morning" is your interpretation not evidence. You provided nothing else. I on the other have provided tons of evidence and you just selectively ignored it. You are the worse atheist ever.

reply

Get over it son. And the sunrise absolutely did imply the next day, it is a film technique used to imply a certain passage of time, just like how seeing the Eiffel Tower means you are in Paris, the film doesn't have to have the word "Paris" on the screen to tell the audience they are in Paris just like Spielberg didn't have to have it say "the next day" on the screen. Regardless Indy and Henry still made it in the same amount of time that the Nazis did and when we last left them they were trapped in a foreign, enemy country (and as confirmed in Raiders Indy didn't know how to speak German) with no resources or transportation, any explanation you can offer is just fan fiction and this is a major plot hole.

reply

" Get over it son"

more condescension. You are worthless at arguing. You can't insult you way out of shit arguments you now.

"it is a film technique used to imply a certain passage of time"

List every example of shots of sunrises used in film then prove 100% that all those shots represented it was the specific next day in film time. You made the claim; burden of proof is on you to prove that sunrise = next morning.

" with no resources or transportation, any explanation you can offer is just fan fiction and this is a major plot hole."

But how the fuck is it not a plot hole in Dark kight rises when it is the SAME EXACT SCENARIO? Only difference is we know about how far way indy and Henry are away from Hatay and have no idea where Bruce is at. Jesus man; stop doubling down on your personal interpretation and look at the fact and evidence. You suck at this.

reply

They aren’t the same situation as it took Bruce 23 days to get back and not a few hours. Plus Bruce wasn’t stranded in the middle of enemy territory and he know he was close to civilization, Indy was not. Plus we know his stills and he is a trained ninja who had no problem moving from place to place in the previous films. I see no indication that is indys skill set. You’re comparing apples and oranges.

reply

You don't know where Bruce is and by modern travel standards he cannot get back into the U.S. without identification which he does not have. If he crossed into the US illegally it would take weeks for him to complete the trip.

"he know he was close to civilization,"

You don't know the circumstances of the nearby village; it could have been deserted or hostile. You don't know; you are making up excuses (this is much more egregious than your claim of "invisible cars")

" Indy was not."

What the hell are you talking about; they were just on a road and there was a car that they stole. That means they are pretty close to civilization; numb nuts. My god man just think for a second.

"Plus we know his stills and he is a trained ninja who had no problem moving from place to place in the previous films. "

In previous films he had either unlimited reasources or unlimited time. He had neither of those in Rises.

"I see no indication that is indys skill set. You’re comparing apples and oranges."

Indy literally just stole a car in the last scene and there is no indication that he could not do so again. In Rises we are not given ANY details of how Bruce accomplishes getting back to Gotham we only know the limitations, of which he has many. That is why in Rises it IS a plot hole do to missing details while in Last Crusade it is not because the details are freaking obvious.

reply

Even if he was on exactly the other side of the world from Gotham, getting back in 23 days is well within reason, he has ninja training and is skilled at blending in with the surroundings, he is able to disappear and "become truly invisible", stowing away on a boat or plane, assuming proper channels didn't work are well within his skill set.

You dont' know the circumstances either, if the village were deserted or he couldn't speak the language that is your burden of proof.

The only car we saw was blown to smithereens, there is no proof of any other car in the area and he had to be very careful who he trusted as he was in enemy territory, Bruce did not have that problem.

Time was not a problem, he had over 3 weeks, the only challenge is getting transportation, as soon as he gets transportation back to the states he is back the next day.

Where is this car? You have still yet to provide proof of this car you speak of? If you pay attention in Rises and to the previous films there is a logical course that gets Bruce from the pit to Gotham: Nearby village --> Obtain transportation to nearest major city --> Find nearest US embassy and get transportation back OR if that's not possible use his skills of theatricality and deception to stow aboard either a plane or ship on its way back to the US. This chain of events is supported by what we see in Begins and Rises. You however cannot provide proof of this car so therefore the car is not an option.

reply

"stowing away on a boat"

A boat is not an option. Do a little research; trips across the Atlantic are 3 weeks minimum; across the pacific is 5 weeks minimum. Plane is the only option. How does he get through airline customs without a passport or ID? Think about it, can anyone trained in Ninjutsu sneak on to modern airlines? If so why aren't all terrorist experts in Ninjutsu?

"if the village were deserted or he couldn't speak the language that is your burden of proof."

That is NOT how burden of proof works. You are the one who claimed the village was nearby and he could go there to seek help. I point out flaws in this assumption on your part. I don't have to prove the flaws; the claim is yours and I am disputing it; meaning YOU have the burden of proof.

"there is no proof of any other car in the area"

Dude, how many times do I have to say it. IN EUROPE IN 1930'S THERE WAS 300 CARS PER 1000 PERSON. this means on average there would be a car within 5 miles in any direction. I like that you just keep ignoring this FACT because it disproves your claim totally.

"as soon as he gets transportation back to the states he is back the next day."

Sure if he had money or ID/Passport it would easy; but Rises specifically shows us he does not have those things. Meaning international travel within one month is going to be impossible through any regular means.

"Where is this car" "

The film doesn't have to show it. It is implied by the fact that they stole one car in the previous scene and cars are a regular commodity in Europe at that time. There is no reason to doubt they could and would steal another car within about 5 miles based on the proximity estimates.

Where are the villagers that help Bruce Wayne? Is he lucky enough to speak their language, these invisible villagers? It is next to the pit, are they not Bane Loyalist the same way all people in Europe were Nazi sympathizers (according to YOU)?

reply

"Find nearest US embassy and get transportation back"

Even if he got to an Embassy he would have to wait to get a passport before being allowed to travel. Have you ever travelled internationally? it is not so 'easy' as just go to an embassy and get a ride. Also they would not pay for his plane ticket. If he had no money they would have him try to make contact with friends or family to pay for his ticket. AND it takes at least 4 weeks to get a passport processed. Again I would have no problem accepting Bruce could circumvent the process with his unlimited resources; BUT RISES SHOWS US HE IS NO LONGER A BILLIONAIRE.

"deception to stow aboard either a plane or ship o"

He is not going to get through an airpline security and sneak on a plane in modern times no matter how solid his ninja skills are; this is a asinine claim. CAn't travel by boat the minimum travel time is more than 23 days. You are just wrong on this 100%.

"You however cannot provide proof of this car so therefore the car is not an option."

https://www.energy.gov/eere/vehicles/fact-962-january-30-2017-vehicles-capita-other-regionscountries-compared-united-states

Look at the chart, numb nuts. just below 300 cars per 1000 people. You claim is like saying; you can't prove they used knives at dinner time in 1930's because you don't specifically see them. It was a regular commodity even in the 30's this means you can assume one is nearby. So, finding a car or motorcycle IS ABSOLUTELY AN OPTION. You are just incredibly 100% wrong on this in every way imaginable.

reply

The fact that he was a US citizen who was kidnapped might play a role in that. Also have you ever traveled by plane? It doesn't take being a billionaire to be able to buy a freaking plane ticket. I am so far from being a billionaire and I was able to pay for a ticket no problem kid. And LOL we have seen him just completely disappear in the blink of an eye, sneaking onto a plane isn't going to be a big deal to him. You are 100% wrong in this area.

My question still stands: Where was this car? I didn't see a car, I saw them stranded on a beach in hostile territory with no resources. Them stealing this imaginary car is just fan fiction on your part.

You keep repeating yourself here kid, this isn't going well for you. Either contribute to this discussion or please kindly stop replying.

reply

"The fact that he was a US citizen who was kidnapped might play a role in that"

So now it was well known that Bruce Wayne was kidnapped? and when he turned up at the embassy it didn't make media headlines? Get real dude, this is Bull.

"Also have you ever traveled by plane?"

Have you ever traveled by plane internationally. Bruce did NOT have his ID or passport, he would NOT be allowed to fly until he had those; it would take weeks for him to get it all processed. That wouldn't be a problem for a billionaire how could pay to expedite the process (NOT JUT BUY THE TICKET). Go try getting into the U.S. by flight without a passport; let me know how it goes.

"we have seen him just completely disappear in the blink of an eye, sneaking onto a plane"

LOL the security cameras wouldn't pick him up? how about airport security? He can 'disappear into shadows sure; but he can't turn invisible. I would love to see a actual practiced ninjutsu expert attempt what you claim Bruce could do; I promise you they would not make it.

"My question still stands: Where was this car? I didn't see a car, I saw them stranded on a beach in hostile territory with no resources. "

My question still stands: Where are the villagers? I ddin't see any villagers. I saw him stranded in the middle of Nowhere outside the pit with no money, ID or resources in unknown territory. It is the same exact problem.

"Them stealing this imaginary car is just fan fiction on your part."

WTF makes you think it imaginary. Does Ketchup have to be shown on camera for it to exist in the Indiana Jones universe? WTF dude. CArs are all over the place. YOU LITERALLY SEE THEM STEAL ONE IN THE VERY LAST SCENE. this is just insane levels of deluded denial on your part.

"You keep repeating yourself here kid,"

You keep repeating yourself to you hypocritical condescending douche bag. Drop the fucking kid stuff you freaking jack ass.

reply

He could have made up any story he wanted to, like he was on a safari, he got drunk and was lost. You know kind of like how he made up a story that he got drunk and burned his house down. And so what if it made the news? I'm pretty sure a major city being taken over by terrorists would have been front page news for months while Bruce's antics would have been buried to page 4.

You said that because he was no longer a billionaire he wouldn't have been able to afford it, I'm not a billionaire and I've flown many times kid. He also could have obtained a limited validity passport which isn't valid for as long but he didn't need it to be. That is done in case of an emergency if your passport/ID are lost/stolen while overseas.

He dodged the cops multiple times in the first movie, it wouldn't have been a problem for him, again he has the ability to blend into the shadows and his surroundings, sneaking onto a plane is within the abilities previously established in the other movies, heck he had no problem camouflaging himself in the first half of TDKR and that was him out of shape. This is a non issue and I am dismissing this point.

My question still stands: How do you know the village was empty

Because there was not a car in sight when we last left Indy and Henry, therefore you are not justified in appealing to it.

Personal insults indicate you have run out of anything to say, you are the weakest link goodbye.

reply

"He could have made up any story he wanted to"

Do you even have a passport? He doesn't matter how you lost it, you would still have to go through the process of getting a new one. That takes weeks, kid.

"You said that because he was no longer a billionaire he wouldn't have been able to afford it, I'm not a billionaire and I've flown many times kid."

god, do you not even read what I wrote; I was not contesting he could afford a plane ticket I was contesting he would not have enough money to 'bypass' the process of getting a passport.

"sneaking onto a plane is within the abilities previously established in the other movies"

You have no proof of this; what other time did Bruce sneak onto a plane in the series? never happend. No proof, I am dismissing this point.

"My question still stands: How do you know the village was empty"

My question still stand: how do you know a car wasn't close by?

"Because there was not a car in sight when we last left Indy and Henry, therefore you are not justified in appealing to it."

Dude that is the EXACT SAME PROBLEM as the villagers not being in sight. Man you aren't just a hypocrite, you a low thinking one at that.

"Personal insults indicate you have run out of anything to say"

You started off with personal insults and being a condescending prick; which proves your argument are weak.

reply

I just explained to you son, he could have obtained a limited validity passport which doesn't take as much time to obtain, or he could have stowed aboard a plane, you have no debunked either possibility which means you are not justified in saying Bruce getting back to Gotham is a plot hole. You are really bad at this.

I already debunked your second premise in my first paragraph, dismissed.

I have plenty of proof, we have watched Bruce blend into the shadows and disappear, he has the skills to hide in his surroundings and become "truly invisible", this is basic ninja training kid. Those skills are within what it would have taken to stow away on a plane.

Because there wasn't a car in sight that's why. You can't provide proof of this car however I can provide proof of this village.

What personal insults did I ever use? And yes let the hate flow through you.

EDIT: The village was Jodhpor, India and it is populated: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jodhpur

[deleted]

what city were they in before they arrived in Hatay?

reply

They were definitely still in Germany considering their conversation on the blimp started immediately after take off and it lasted maybe 4 minutes then at the end of that cringeworthy talk they had they were turning around and that’s when they jumped off. They were at least 1000 miles away yet they arrived at the same time the Nazis did

reply

I doubt that; the time it would take to dispatch 2 planes and get the coordinates to the Zeppelin and then catch up to it's exact location. Also Indy disabled the radio, which took time after they took off, and it took time for the Zeppelin crew to realize it to realize it before turning the Zeppelin around. There is no indication that the conversation that Indy and Henry had was immediately after take off, in fact it is suggested they were on the Zeppelin for a while considering they were in seats when taking off but at a diner table eating and drinking when they have the conversation. You constantly accuse others of not paying attention. Maybe it is you that doesn't pay attention.

reply

And... This is time compression. Somebody had the trip mapped out when the screenplay was written, but in the filming and editing, things got compressed. The incident with the birds on the beach... A beach that was certainly in Greece or Turkey... That is where the characters wind up after what seems like a very short time. Zeppelin - Seems like just minutes in the film, should have been longer. The flight in the bi-plane - seems like just minutes but they crash land in Greece (or Turkey). This is the proof that there has been time unaccounted for because, as the crow (or zeppelin or biplane) flies that is a good 1000 miles. Then from the beach to Hatay by... presumably train or car - unseen and not hinted at - but about 700 miles from a hypothetical point on the Greek coast. I'd bet you could do that last leg in 14-16 hours with a mix of car/truck and train... mostly train.
So, there's neither a plot hole nor an easy explanation in my view. The whole trip is depicted in short action beats with no allowance for the time that must have passed. Par for the course and a good reason why they should have used an animated map to show the zeppelin flight, the bi-plane flight and the (probable) train journey. They did it earlier in the film for the DC-3 trip.
I'm reasonably comfortable with the Nazi expedition taking as much time to reach the destination as Indy. The Nazis were noted for equal parts efficiency and the total opposite of efficiency. The whole semi-feudal structure could easily have slowed procurement of the gift car and air transport for it.

reply

OH that is a good point about the beach they were on; I didn't think of that. clearly they were not in Germany anymore. Nowhere in Southern German has a rocky waterfront to a great body of water like that.

"I'm reasonably comfortable with the Nazi expedition taking as much time to reach the destination as Indy. The Nazis were noted for equal parts efficiency and the total opposite of efficiency. The whole semi-feudal structure could easily have slowed procurement of the gift car and air transport for it."

Exactly; there is no indication that Donovan and the Nazi squadron would for sure get there faster than Indy considering they had to go through an official governmental approval process. The assumption that it was the next day based on the frame of a sunrise alone; is just an incorrect assumption based on no evidence.

reply

Please prove to me the beach was in Greece or Turkey? (the scene was filmed in Spain) The film never said that so therefore you are not justified in that assertion. Whether the beach looks like it would have been in Germany or not is irrelevant, if you prove that nowhere in Germany is there a coast such as what we saw in the movie all you've done is introduced a new plot hole because they were definitely still in Germany so that means the film shows non-German topography in Germany. And maybe the trip was mapped out but when they cut it they introduced a huge plot hole. The blimp did not fly that far, Vogol woke up as soon as it took off and he was going to call it back immediately, not to mention a mere few minutes after it took off Indy sat down with his Dad and then 4 minutes went by uncut and then the blimp turned around, that means in movie time 4 or so minutes went by after take off and then it turned around. Sorry but they were still in Germany (or at least very close to Germany), any assertions that they were in Greece is baseless speculation and fan fiction.

Any way you slice it this is a plot hole and you would never make excuses like this for any other movie.

reply

I draw a straight line from the point of origin - near Berlin - to the destination of Hatay. I found that going in that direction you didn't hit beachfront property till you got to Greece. They could have shot it on Santa Catalina Island for all I care and it would still be intended to be Greece, or, if you want to give them a bonus benefit of the doubt, Turkey. I think Greece makes more sense. The dress of the local they encounter and the look of the area suggests... Greece more than Turkey. I stand by my analysis of what was depicted. There is lots of missing time because the journey was truncated at three points: 1) The Zeppelin trip. 2) The bi-plane trip. 3) The only implied trip from the beach to Hatay. A bit of editing and a resort to the animated maps and the whole business would have been perfect.
I don't call it a plot hole. Call it a plot hole if it makes you happy.
I am a science fiction fan. And I love movies and TV. Consequently, I have spent a ridiculous amount of time making excuses for things film and TV writers and producers have done either from ignorance or simply because they didn't give a shit.

reply

Then all you’ve done is pointed out another plot hole although I’m willing to accept that maybe they got diverted when they stole the plane and ended up on the beach in Northern Germany. Also you don’t know where in Germany they took off from, you also don't know what their destination was, Indy just said he got the first flight out of Germany, he may have been planing on going to Denmark first and then get another flight, I see nothing to indicate their tickets were for Hatay.

Because of your comments I now hate this movie even more because now we have another plot hole and according to you Spielberg doesn't even understand the topography of Germany (this is based on your argument)

reply

Word of warning; don't bother trying to reason with this guy; he is a lunatic that will harass you through a large number of replies; lie about what you post and just argue for the sake of it without providing anything of substance (all the while insulting and flaming you). I think they have absolutely no life and they are desperate for attention on this site but most people that know them stopped interacting with them because of the fanaticism and toxic nature of his posts.

Look at my conversation above with him if you need any proof; the guy is a flaming lunatic; completely impervious to logic, reason, and rational arguments. If you don't accept his opinion as fact he will not stop arguing no matter how ridiculous or asinine his points are.

Word of warning; don't fall into the trap. I keep at him when I see him trying to bully his way through conversations and posts all the while the moderators do nothing and pretend what he is doing in not flaming. serious mod5 says all despite all the insults and name calling this user does; it is not flaming. How mod5 justifies this is beyond comprehension.

reply

I see... I'll go see if anyone wants to argue about the submarine in Raiders...

reply

That's actually not a plot hole because in the film you can see Indy riding the top of the submarine and back then submarines could only travel deep under water for short distances so therefore it's not logical that the sub would have dove down. Then all he has to do is jump off right before the sub enters the docking area. From what we see in Raiders you can logically fill in the blanks which means it's not a plot hole, the same cannot be said for Indy/Henry teleporting across Europe.

EDIT: The same people will continue to claim that an invisible car and/or motorcycle just came out of the ground and somehow took them to Hatay even though there was not a car nor a motorcycle in sight when we last left the two. I saw some rocks, a coastline and the two characters without any resources or transportation, the next time we see them they somehow teleported 2000 miles East and are with Sallah. I keep asking where is this alleged car/motorcycle? How do you know they took it 2000 miles to Hatay? Where did it come from? And yet the people who defend this trash movie can't answer those questions, all I ever get are baseless assertions/speculation and fan fiction. There is a huge gaping hole in the script here which is a major problem. As things stand out of the 3 films that have been discussed: Raiders does not have a plot hole, TDKR does not have a plot hole, Last Crusade has a serious plot hole

reply

See what I mean?

"the same cannot be said for Indy/Henry teleporting across Europe."

300 cars per 1000 people in Europe at that time. Also that does not include motorcycles which were also quite popular. All they need to do is find one of the millions of cars and motorcycles that would be within approximately 5 miles in any direction. Why is it so hard to fill in this gap same way one can fill in the gap of Indy riding a submarine, without trying to fanatically assume they teleported? It is NOT a plot hole in Raiders and it is NOT a plot hole in Last Crusade. Just ridiculous.
