    i have seen a lot of movies, but i wish i had the power to change their beginings or at least sad ends.

    my favourite movies currently are
    Europa Report
    Oblivion
    Avatar

    Europa Report: what was "EMI electro magnetic interference" ? was it rightly used? and what was luminence term used? and is it possible to eat kilometers of ice and appearing on surface with EMI for that octopus type creature? at least i wanted some of crew members to return earth.

    oblivion: is it possible to break moon to large space rocks? and who was responsible? and where were the earth's natural resources transfered? and why did director not have shown any aliens? though i liked the happy ending for hero.

    Avatar: i am desperately waiting for part 2. but after some years of thinking on this movie i have found some similiarities with other movies. eg Gaia concept.
    floating rocks ? is it possible? transfering body memory to other body of alien, the crux concept of this movie? what does science say about this transfering phenomenon? can we make bones stronger like Na'vi people? if no, why not?
    and i wanted a change in the end. i expected the victory of human race. but they lost.

    what are your favourite science movies and what do you want to change in plot?

    (Not science movies) World War Z. I really don't know what I would've done with it... just seemed very lacking. The Dark Knight Rises, I wanted a yodeling scene with Bale and Caine at the end.

    I would like to have seen Frankenstein become a porn star. I'd also like to see bad sci-fi creatures killed by something other than fire.

    There are quite a few web sites that go through the stupidity of the film - most of them are quite funny and worth a read.

    I'd rather see movies that had a very sad ending where someone dies that is loved by all to have an ending which allows them to live instead.

    I'd like to see movies that show less violence to women in them made instead of the movies that are always torturing, maiming or killing them.

    LOL. All would be forgiven if they'da let Sigourney Weaver man one of those mech suits in the climactic fight.


    I'd like to tear out all the freaky crablike mouthparts of the Transformers. Even nutcracker jaws would be an improvement.

    Pull the eyepatch off the mad scientist in Godzilla. And the bandit leader in Seven Samurai.

    Prometheus is stupid.
    It is not a lack of meaning - it is a lack of sense.

    I liked this, from a review on IMDB:
    Prometheus is the story of a trillion-dollar mission to discover the origins of human life on a distant planet. Basically, this is supposed to be the greatest exploration undertaken in the history of mankind.

    So who do they send? A gaggle of fractious goons whose collective scientific nous is rivalled only by that of the Three Stooges. Within minutes of touching down (conveniently beside the only 'man-made' structures on the planet, a'la 1960s Star Trek) the 'scientists' are yanking off their helmets, on the basis of 'it seems fine to me', dipping their fingers into strange organic ooze, and lugging a severed alien head back to an unquarantined spaceship in a sandwich bag.
    Watching Prometheus was like being Rick-Rolled.

    If so (in order of preference):
    1
    Director's cut of 3
    2
    4
    .
    .
    .

    .

    The first one is easy: and it was "explained" (by inference) in the film:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Wayne had fixed the autopilot - so Batman wasn't actually in the aircraft when it went out out to sea. Anyone can survive a nuclear explosion simply by not being within the blast radius.

    OK, I must have missed that. Thank you for pointing that one out.
    How about the second one?

    The magic of cinema.
    And advancing the plot while hoping the audience won't think about it.

    Rhett and Scarlett to have lived happily ever after.

    Guinevere and Sir Lancelot and King Arthur to just er work it out between the three of them....

    Romeo and Juliet to not be so stupid...I really do hate that play....two hormonal teens with no sense aided by a couple of adults with zero common sense...and freaking 3 hours of watching them crash and burn...however...some great sword fights and moment of humor

    Well I really liked the Rocky films, the first 4 were great, but absolutely hated Rocky 5, so I would have liked to have seen a Rocky/Star Trek crossover. It would involve Rocky awakening, Buck Rogers style, in the 24th century where he goes on to fight for the intergalatic boxing championship and defeats a Klingon in the title match!

    Actually I wouldn't mind seeing Demolition Man remade, well if Judge Dredd is anything to go by it would be well worth watching.

    From your reply, I think there is a language barrier.

    The first film was also made to earn money and 'classic' is just a subjective opinion.

    There was a disturbing lack of gunship helicopters in Titanic.
    Then again, I'm not sure adding even those could have turned it into a worthwhile film.

    Not a movie but whatever... I wish they never made a 5th season of breaking bad. If it were up to me, every worthwhile plot point would have been resolved in season 4.

    Then again, I'm not sure adding even those could have turned it into a worthwhile film.

    The Matrix --> I wish they'd taken the extra 15 minutes of run time necessary to conclude the story in the first movie instead of stretching it out into two overlong and boring sequels.

    Every movie since The Matrix that portrays "bullet time" --> I wish someone would sit on the directors and explain (with a mallet) that this only happened in the virtual reality of the matrix, not in the real world. BULLET TIME MAKES NO SENSE IN THE REAL WORLD.

    We might as well remake Titanic, but this time we see it from the point of view of the iceberg.
    In other words, a movie of three hours about a floating iceberg in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean (with Morgan Freeman as narrator).

    That is not a remake. That would be a summary of The Love Boat​.

    Now THAT sounds infinitely more interesting than the tedious dreck-ridden, social/ classless mythology, continuity-flawed and (ultimately) romanticisation of infidelity-filled crap I was subjected to.

    One could much change most of anything Nicholas Cage has done. Any tweak would be an improvement.

    He has done a few things that weren't badly done. Generally. He is like Kevin Kostner...who has done a few decent things but generally they are both doing the same thing over and over...no reaching for a new character or delivery......just BORING! I do like SOME of their pieces, but not many!

    I even found a song that can replace "My Heart Will Go On" by CÚline Dion:
