Plot Hole: Why didn't they use the time turner in Harry Potter to just kill young Voldemort?
Explanation: In Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban, everyone loves to point out that if you can time travel, you can just go back to the past and fix every problem, like by killing Voldemort when he was a baby for example.
If you'd just pay attention, you'd see that you can't actually change the past, you travel to the past and effectively live the same exact situation from another perspective. Future Harry saved past Harry, and future Harry was always there to save past Harry, nothing was changed by going back in time.
There will always be paradoxes when time travel is involved, but the remark of 'fixing' the past is just not valid. However, I do have to admit, when they created 'the cursed child' it all went to sh*t. That play makes no sense whatsoever and I therefore wish to not count that in as canon.

Plot Hole: How could Monica afford a 2 bedroom apartment in New York City on the show Friends? It’s so unrealistic!

Plot Hole: Why did NASA train oil drillers how to be astronauts when they could've just trained astronauts to drill oil in Armageddon (1998)?
Explanation: NASA and other space agencies do this all the time; they're called mission specialists and they have specialized training in some field the flight crew doesn't. They don't get taught how to fly the ship, just how not to die in space.
Also, for the record, drilling for oil — or any kind of deep core geological work — is extremely specialized, and most of the people in the positions the team of drillers in Armageddon were in have a lot of letters behind their names.

Plot Hole: Why didn't Kevin call the cops in Home Alone (1990)?
Explanation: Phone line was cut from the falling trees.

Plot Hole: Why did the couple in A Quiet Place (2018) selfishly decide dot have another baby in the middle of what is essentially an apocalypse?
Explanation: The couple likely got pregnant regardless of their own wishes. There's basically zero infrastructure left and they've been reduced to raiding an abandoned pharmacy for whatever random medicine might be left. Sure, they could probably find a few packs of pills and condoms, but after that, what exactly are your birth control options? Give yourself a birth control implant? Perform your own vasectomy? Pull out and hope for the best?

Plot Hole: Why don't Marty's parents realize they'd met their own son/remember what he looked like in Back to the Future (1985)?
Explanation: They knew him for a week over 20 years before he would look like that. And the only people he saw on a regular basis in that week were Doc, who knew, and Lorraine, who would be eager to forget a silly teenage crush she had just before meeting her soulmate.

Plot Hole: If Harry Potter was a horcrux the entire time and basilisk venom is enough to destroy a horcrux, why wasn't the horcrux inside of Harry destroyed when the basilisk bit him in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)?
Explanation: It would have been enough to kill him/destroy the horcrux if Fawkes hadn't been there. A horcrux has to be damaged beyond hope of magical repair. That means death if it's a living thing, or some powerful magical damage for nonliving objects. It's not like basilisk venom has any special 'anti-horcrux' properties. It's just a substance that can damage most objects behind the point of magical repair, and Fawkes cured Harry before it could kill him.

Plot Hole: Why didn't Jack and Rose just share the big door in Titanic (1997) when they could've both fit?
Explanation: Jack and Rose could not have both gotten onto the door. They even showed Jack trying to climb up and the whole thing capsizing.

Plot Hole: How was Kylo Ren (who had trained for years with a lightsaber) so easily defeated by Rey (who only healed a lightsaber for a few minutes in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)?
Explanation: Kylo had, in the past 10 minutes, killed his father, been shot in the leg by a weapon that being shot by a normal person had previously been demonstrated to be the equivalent to being hit by a car, and had taken a lightsaber hit from Finn (who he had been merely toying with and ended the fight as soon as he took a hit). On top of all of this, he wasn’t even trying to kill Rey and was trying to recruit her. Yet even after all of those things being clearly demonstrated just moments before, fans still insist that either he’s weak or that Rey is overpowered for beating him.

Plot Hole: If Cinderella's glass slipper fit her foot perfectly, then why did it fall off in the first place in Cinderella (1950)?
Explanation: Glass!!! Is not!!! Very malleable!!! It’s not a very flexible material so if course it can be expected to fall off!! This also applies to the original story, where the slipper is made of gold.

Plot Hole: If Buzz Lightyear doesn't think he's a toy, why does he freeze up when humans are around in Toy Story (1995)?
Explanation: Because he's on an alien planet and that's what everyone else does when these giants walk into the room. He needs to blend in. It also might just be an instinct all toys have. You can't exactly have toys not holding still just because they don't consciously know any better.

Plot Hole: Why didn't they just fly the eagles to Mordor in the Lord of the Rings trilogy?
Explanation: Well, maybe that tower with the giant demonic eye could see them coming miles away and order an army of Orcs to shoot them down.

Plot Hole: How does a human-made virus work on alien-made technology in Independence Day (1996)?
Explanation: Everyone jokes about the alien mothership not having anti-virus, but why would they? They're a hivemind species that communicates telepathically, and they seem to have an extremely high level of social cohesion. Computer viruses aren't like actual viruses. They're not naturally occurring; humans created them because humans are malicious towards each other. It's entirely possible an alien species that uses telepathy to communicate wouldn't even concieve of such a thing, and it doesn't seem likely that any of the species they've faced thus far have given them reason to consider it. Plus, even if they did have such defenses, at that point Jeff Goldblum has a direct hardline connection anyway.

Plot Hole: In Captain America: Civil War (2016) Tony Stark figures out that Peter Parker is Spider-Man and we're never told how.
Explanation: That doesn't break the rules of the universe, however, since we know that Tony Stark can probably easily access a lot of security footage (he even shows some to Peter) and we can imagine that he used that to track Peter down; or there may be a different explanation, dude's an Avenger after all. It would be different if, say, that teacher from the maths competition group in Homecoming just knew Peter's identity, without explanation, because one of the rules of the universe is that Peter keeps his secret identity pretty secret.

Plot Hole: Why didn't Katniss in The Hunger Games (2012) let Prim take tesserae? If Prim got picked, Katniss could volunteer for her anyway.
Explanation: The explanation is that if Prim takes tesserae, she will keep getting her name entered into the games more often every year, including after Katniss turns 18 and becomes ineligible to volunteer.

Plot Hole: Why was Daniel allowed to do the crane kick in The Karate Kid (1984) when it's clearly illegal?
Explanation: Many traditional martial arts competitions ban punches to the head, but are perfectly okay with kicks to the head. Why that rule exists varies depending on who you ask, but kicks to the head are usually perfectly legal. Yes, I know that the Cobra Kai YouTube series jumped on the bandwagon with this one, but I still say it's bulls**t.

Plot Hole: How did Batman get back into Gotham in The Dark Knight Rises (2008) when it was under Bane's control?
Explanation: Obviously, Bruce is a man of stealth who knows every way into, out of, and through Gotham; not just the roads that were seized by Bane. The real question is how he recovered from that spinal break and hokey prison surgery enough to make the trek and fight at all.

Plot Hole: Why didn't Vader sense that Leai was his daughter in Star Wars: A New Hope (Episode Iv, 1977)?
Explanation: Vader didn't sense that Luke was his son either. He thought Padme had a miscarriage. He only knows Luke is his son when Palpatine flat out tells him.

Plot Hole: Why didn't Thanos just create more resources instead of killing half of life on every planet in Avengers: Infinity War (2018)?
Explanation: Is there not a scene explaining that he'd had the genocide idea for a long time, but was rejected and considered crazy by his people? I think the implication is that, deep down, Thanos wanted to kill half of all life so he could say "I told you so."

Plot Hole: Gendry calls himself "Gendry Rivers" when talking to Arya. Since he's Robert Baratheon's bastard and was born in King's Landing, he should be called "Gendry Waters" in Game of Thrones.
Explanation: The problem is that only acknowledged highborn bastards have geographically- based surnames like “Snow”, “Sand” or “Waters”. Gendry didn’t even know who his father is until the very end, so he in fact never uses a surname. He might have know that he is a bastard but he didn’t know he is highborn. Small folks, bastards or not, don’t use surnames. This is evident since many black brothers who are lowborn don’t have surnames. Gendry lived his whole life calling himself simply “Gendry”, so he made a mistake when he wanted to emphasize that he is no longer a bastard, on the same day that he found out he was a bastard of Robert’s. Also it was established that Gendry is illiterate...

Plot Hole: How did anyone know Charles Foster Kane's last word in Citizen Kane (1941) when he appeared to die alone?
Explanation: Just because he’s the only one in the shot when he dies doesn’t mean none of his staff weren’t just out of shot.
