    Matrix plot flaw.

    How do they make food to feed all the people in Zion? They scorched the sky. No light = no plants. no plants = no livestock. no plants = no food.

    A fully-functional and powerful Eye of Sauron with his vast army and Nazgul would not have allowed the hawks to simply fly in. By the time the hawks got there, it was a search and recovery mission.

    They explain this.

    Using the technology and the resources that are available underground, they are able to slop together some sort of man made, horrible tasting protein-based soup like meal. This was one of the reasons why the first thing Cypher did was order a juicy steak and agree to give up their location to the agents the second he was back in The Matrix - he hated the food that much.

    went to see ted yesterday & all the previews are loud explosions & dumb unbelievable car crashes...
    they are all the same, no stories, just really bad tough guys & plots like pornos. just enough plot to get to the action scenes.
    i don't go to movies much

    Flaw from the book which made it into the movie versions: In Lord Of The Flies, Piggy is nearsighted. You could not start a fire with his glasses; he would have to be farsighted....

    They were Eagles.

    There's a hole in your criticism.

    Drive:

    Why didn't the Driver just drive over Albert Brooks like he did Ron Perlman? Why did he walk up to him, turn around, and get himself knifed?

    nah. the Nazgul were snakes. the Eagles would mop the sky with them..

    He didn't take the eagles to Mordor because the war had to be won by men and not by magic and elves (Gendalf was part elf, and those birds were the eagle king and retinue.) . The time of Elves and magic was ending. Man had to win his own world this time.

    Private Parts - They were bound to divorce anyway, the whole tight marriage thing is flawed.

    maybe not, but they are only the traditional weapon of a jedi not the unique weapon. like all tech, you just assemble them from spare parts. once small power sources capable of powering such devices are common, everyone will be able to make them.
