“Never let Go,” My Ass…

Posted in Articles on September 27, 2012 by fiman61

Now that Z has dazzled us with his warrior poet retelling of PHC 2012, it’s time we discussed something more important which has resurfaced it’s head after nearly 15 years in the dark. And what pray tell is this important issue? Well it has to deal with one of the biggest movie gaffs of all time in my opinion.

“Of all time?” I hear you whisper incredulously (that little word just got me like 30 points in Scrabble aka Words with Friends for you youngsters). So which movie gaff Nickay are you talking about?

Could he be talking about in Back to the Future II where the Delorean is struck by lightning and goes back in time even though the Delorean needs to be travelling 88MPH to do so (and was doing a smooth 1MPH at the time)?

No, but I like where your head is at.

Could he be talking about how there were two traitors in the original Matrix movie?

Got your attention there didn’t I? How can Cipher log in to go all Judas on Morpheus without someone else to log him him in. That is an essential part of Matrix logic, hell they have characters whose only job is to get them in and out. But no, that is for another time (my money is on Dozer BTW).

No, I am talking about the 2nd biggest movie of all time, the one, the only…

Yep, fucking Titanic. And you all know the scene I talking about, the infamous door scene and the immortal question “Could Jack and Rose have both fit on the door and thus avoided dying?”

And I will let my opinion be known right now, they both could fit on that door. Me and Z both fit on pieces of drift wood smaller than that when we younger. Now I always thought I was the only one who thought they both could have fit on. But than I heard because of the rerelease of the movie in 3-D, the Mythbusters have offered to test the theory out. Did other people I know believe in the fact that Kate half assed tried once and than looked out for her own English arse? I broached this subject on a test run with my wife and work wife, their responses:

Drea: “They totally could have…she was a door hog” and “All she needed to do was turn sideways so they could spoon and BAM they both fit on the door”

Malisa: “Hell yeah they both could’ve fit! Stingy bitch!” and “I’ll never let go…except when I let go”

That’s what they thought, I want to know what the rest of you the readers think. Sound off on the door scene or one of the other movie plot holes mentioned above if you want. We will be accepting movie “logic” and real world “logic”.
