The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Major Plot hole: Surprise! Plutarch’s plan was all along to save Katniss from the games and make her escape the clock-dome before President Snow could see it coming. This is why he
(1) Sprayed killing poison gas at Katniss while she was asleep - knowing she would wake-up just in time because he has the intuition of a Jedi
(2) Sent a horde of fucked-up baboons on bath-salts ready to eat her face-off - knowing they would mostly get killed while Katniss would get saved by a creepy camouflaged tribute who waited all day under a tree to die at the right moment.
(3) Made the Cornucopia spin like a giant 100 tons helicopter rotor in the off-chance Katniss would fall in the water and not explode her brain on one of the 12 separating hard-rock bridges.
I understand he had to make the game both interesting and credible for President Snow, but there is simply no way for him to predict and control so well the events he is throwing at Katniss. She....
Thor: The Dark World
Minor Plot hole: For about 5000 years, the Asgardian military technology did not evolve in the slightest. Their Dark-Elf counterparts who were in suspended animation for exactly 5000 years still have the upper-hand with a ridiculous concept called ‘’long-range weapons’’ where they can shoot Asgard foot soldiers with laser guns and dimension-ripping grenades while Asgard tried to defend itself with daggers and shields. Funny thing though, Asgard has long-range weapons on their ships – but Dark Elves ONLY uses knives-shaped ships for close-quarter damage. Wtf?
Major Plot hole: If Frigga can make illusions of everyone, why didn’t she make an extra illusion of herself to complement the illusion of Natalie Portman she made to protect her from Malekith? Clearly she had the physical capacity to do it (similar to her son Loki) – why was the mental capacity lacking? Oh right, she had to die so the movie could unite the brothers in a vengeance plan!

Iron Man 3
Minor Plot hole: Killian's memorable henchman: bald no-name, pretends to be Rhodes by flying inside the Iron Patriot suit to join the President in Air force One. Here, we are presented with a comically bad non-exchange conversation where the President salutes Iron Patriot, his employee, and then proceeds to welcome him aboard even if he didn't reply back with anything. Wouldn't the President of the United States who was threatened by a deadly terrorist still at large have better security measures than simply accepting a man in a suit without any sort of confirmation that it is indeed Rhodes? The guy didn't say anything, didn't present any identification. Aren't there people protecting the president with outrageous salaries to check for things like this? Not in this movie apparently!
Minor Plot hole: Why would Pepper go at the edge of her house WHILE it is collapsing? We see Iron Man falling with debris in the water – as more shit......
The Dark Knight Rises
Minor Plot hole: So the Gotham police force is finally out of the sewers after 5 months of increasing malnutrition and gay urges. Their plan? Find Bane’s army (soldiers with AK-47s and tanks) and charge them with a few handguns. No surprise. No surrounding strategy. Just a good old suicidal medieval B-line. It’s a miracle Bane’s soldiers also happened to be retards themselves and decided to fist fight trained police officers instead of mowing them down with their weapons. But one thing is even weirder: all the cops were clean-shaved. This means that aside from food – Gillette razors and creams were the number 1 item sent in the sewers.
Minor Plot hole: People on the internet complain that Batman appeared out of nowhere in Gotham city after leaving the desert. Those same people would probably call on the UN Security council for a drone strike on Christopher Nolan’s house if they considered the fact that Bruce Wayne had to spend days hiding around one of Gotham’s destroyed bridge to paint a batman symbol with gasoline.

What is a plot hole ?
Plot holes are contradictions in a screenplay. The elements that are contradicted can both be mentioned on paper or implied by the premise and universe of the screenplay.
There are 3 types of plot holes : minor plot holes, major plot holes, and super plot holes. They all refer to the same basic concept but are separated by the reach their contradictions have on the overall story.
Movieplotholes simply tries to identify all of them in popular films. There are three other types of errors that can be found in screenplays and we encourage you to visit the definition page to see our in-depth approach to find them all.
