I just found a thread on alt.cult.movies where the "Citizen Kane" plot hole was plugged. I put it in the two PMs that I was responding to.

Too bad, it was a nice story.

Ah, but why couldn't Rosebud be the sled and 'something else'?
If you are not cheating, you are only cheating yourself.

Dutchco is about to put out some new Ebook: DUTCHCO. Get 'em while you can.

Actually Rosebud was the sled and a reference to a mistress... I'll leave it at that.

I got it. I wonder if THAT was the reason Hearst was in such a snit over the film and not specifically because it portrayed him in a poor light!

The thread about bad movie lines made me remember this issue I have always had with the terminator (besides his politics...)

ok, here goes:

So the terminator is sent back in time to kill John Connors mother, and in response, a human is sent back to protect her. The human impregnates her, and she has john connor.

If the terminator people were so smart, hey they could travel back in time!!, wouldnt they have just not sent arnold back? Then the guy sent to protect her wouldnt be sent back, and no whopie...

what am I missing?

I never understood this myself. You have a TIME MACHINE. Keep going back till you get it right! Just send back a dude a day earlier. I mean how tough is it? Have them write stuff down and put it in a cave somewhere and then go pick it up and read it and so forth.

The earth is SO lucky I am not one of the terminators.

Watch the Bill and Ted movies. "Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey" has them coming up with a bizarre plot to out think the bad guy and go back in time to set up a trap. Whereupon he apparently out thinks THEM and says that after he wins he'll go back and fix their trap so it doesn't work. Then it turns out his plan fails and Bill says; "You forget that only the winner gets to go back in time." TED: "And that's us."
