phuquetarde: Ill give Independence Day a pass. The scientists did have 40 some years of tinkering with the alien technology. Its conceivable they had learned their computer systems and networking protocols to program a virus that attacks it.Also, its equally feasible that our computing technology is actually based on that alien technology.
Fark Me To Tears: FTFA: "Independence Day"A computer virus destroys an entire alien ship ... really? And where did David connect the device that uploaded the virus. We doubt they sell alien ports at Best Buy.WTF? Did the author actually watch any of these movies?The virus didn't destroy the alien ship. The nuclear bomb that was detonated inside the alien ship destroyed the alien ship. The virus just screwed up the alien computer systems that controlled their ships.The virus was transmitted to the mother ship from an antenna that had been mounted on the captured spaceship.The REAL plot hole in Independence Day was that the virus worked at all. Jeff Goldblum's character goes from correctly interpreting a countdown signal to being able to write malicious code for a completely alien computer system in the span of a couple of days... On a f*ckin' Mac, no less.The WORST plot hole in Independence Day was that Jeff Goldblum and his father were able to drive from New York City to Washington DC, get into the White House, brief the president, and get over to Andrews Air Force base to escape in Air Force One in the span of about five hours.
fisker: cman: There are some time traveling stories that have 0 plot holes.jesus christ
flaminio: Luke had a working hyperdrive, so he got to Dagobah almost instantly. The Falcon's was broken, so it took them a very long time to get to Bespin.
FeedTheCollapse: Alien 3 has quite a bit of holes otherwise.
Mugato: As for The Matrix plot hole, none of it makes sense at all since they could have just used cows if all they wanted was heat energy.
ManateeGag: cman: #5 is full of shiat. There are some time traveling stories that have 0 plot holes.Bender's Big Score has no plot-holes whatsoever. In fact, the story writers went WAY out of their way to ensure that there were no plot holes. That is the most insane time-traveling story ever told.I always get confused trying to keep track and the Frys (Fries) and which one is "real"
