FAIL: The Massive Plot Hole in the Movie PIXELS January 4, 2016

Welcome back to FAIL, our ongoing video series where we take a look at Hollywood’s biggest blunders both behind the camera and in front of it.

By all accounts, the Adam Sandler movie PIXELS was a complete disappointment. While it had great special effects it suffered from unfunny jokes, constant plot holes and a completely miscast lead actor.

That’s right, this film has plot holes big enough to drive a truck through. In fact, most of the film’s plot holes are so huge, most of them have already been talked about by the online community. However, there is one glaring plot hole in this movie that nobody has seemed to notice up until this point and up to the time of posting hasn’t even been published as a goof on the movie’s official IMDB page.

We at GameXcess.net pride ourselves on finding errors that others miss, and oh boy do we have a big error to tell you about.  So sit back and relax as Maniac tells you a story about the plot hole the Internet seems to have missed.  Just be aware, there will be spoilers.

FAIL: Why Haven’t There Been Sequels to Who Framed Roger Rabbit August 28, 2015

FAIL is back, and it’s back in a big way.  For those of you unfamiliar with this series, it’s a chance for us to take a look at Hollywood’s biggest failures, both on the screen and behind the camera.

After already speaking about popular franchises like Superman and The Terminator, Maniac has now set his sights on something a little more personal.  After being inspired by YouTube creator The Dom and his fantastic series Lost in Adaptation, Maniac decided to set his sights on one of his favorite films of all time, the 1989 classic Who Framed Roger Rabbit.  When it was released it was one of the most groundbreaking and successful films of all time, and yet in all the years since its release it never received a sequel.

Turns out there’s a very complicated reason why.So sit back and relax as Maniac gets to the bottom of why Disney never produced another Roger Rabbit movie even though scripts were made, money was set aside, and the actors were willing to come back.  Prepare yourselves to hear a story of Hollywood at its worst.

FAIL: The Plot of Superman Lives July 21, 2015

Here’s a new episode of FAIL for you guys today, a brand new series where Maniac talks about Hollywood’s ongoing failures.

Today, we’re going to be talking about the plot to Superman Lives, a bonafied Superman film planned for production in the mid-90s. It was written by Kevin  Smith (writer/director of Clerks), produced by Jon Peters (producer of Batman and Caddyshack), star Nicolas Cage (Ghost Rider) and get directed by Tim Burton (Beetlejuice).

Sadly, production issues and creative differences forced the project’s cancellation before production began, and the script Kevin Smith wrote was never shot.  A documentary has just recently been produced which details the film’s failed development, but a small criticism about it was that the documentary never talked about the film’s plot.

So what was the plot of this movie, and why was it never produced while other films like Man of Steel and Superman Returns were?  Give the video below a watch and find out. Then you can decide for yourself if it was a shame or a good thing that the movie was never made.

FAIL: Why Terminator 3 Has a Broken Ending June 29, 2015

Apologies for this particular item not being about a gaming related topic but darn it there have been a whole bunch of Terminator games made in the past twenty years, so I figured this is close enough.

I was a huge fan of the Terminator movies up until the release of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines was released in the early 2000s. Then I saw that horrible film and thought it was so badly written that I haven’t seen a new Terminator movie since. But then I discovered Terminator 3‘s ending is not only bad, but it’s fundamentally broken with a plot hole big enough to drive a semi truck through.

So what is wrong with this ending?  Let’s watch the video and find out.
