Harry Potter:
1) Time Paradox and all of that debate.
2) Maybe it only works for about an hour or so? Like it can't go further back than that?

I think the reason that they dont use time turners for large past events is because they only work one way, so say if you used it to go back 2 months, you would be stuck in that time hiding until your future self goes to the past

@ #10: Taking a page from Doctor Who, it would be disastrous to cross your own timeline. Also you have to live through the time you went back to.   
So in effort the current you would cease to exist the moment your past self saw your current self (In this case you being Harry) because since that event hadn't happened in your original timeline, your timeline would change and the current you would be non-existent. Of course there is ways to make sure you (past) don't see yourself (current), but again you would have to live in hiding until the moment you (past) goes into the past. Effectively taking off that much time from your life.   
   
tl;dr Don't go back in time to change your own timeline

Before someone thinks I forgot, it was still dangerous for Harry & Hermione to go back in time, but because they needed to free Sirius, they did it. And Hermione already knew about time travel in the moment they went back so for her to see herself only assured her that she needed to go back later.

...i'll give this a try

1. maybe the whole "come to life" thing only works when no one is noticing (except for rare ocassions)

2. because there IS a chance that the child will grow up to look similar to their parent

3. there are other things you can roll cigs with, and water alone doesn't do much to clean dirt

The Santa Clause one always annoyed the **** out of me. It happens in every "Kids should believe in Santa" movie. It's ******* retarded.

#10: A. Deaths are fixed points in time and B. It creates paradoxes that makes preventing the death from happening unpredictable anyway.
If you really want a Harry Potter plot hole, there is this one: Hermione had a purse that was bottomless and weightless no matter how much was stored inside of it. At the beginning of the deathly hallows, she could have stowed Harry away and travel without any issue. George didn't have to lose his ear and Mad Eye didn't have to die.

Logic Hole: if the purse is bottomless then how the **** can she find harrry before he dies of thirst or hunger. If you say your wrong about it being bottomless then how will harry surive being in there with all this other stuff flying around and killing him?

He worded it wrong. It's not bottomless, it's just an undetectable expansion charm, making the purse larger than normal, but not huge. Hermione can still reach the bottom of her purse.

It should have answered your entire point. It's not a really HUGE purse. Harry couldn't fit inside it, therefore couldn't die in it if he couldn't get in it in the first place.

Number 1: He doesn't want to blow his cover as a Space Ranger. The natives to the planet (humans) are very big compared to him and they could easily kill him if they ever found out he was invading Earth. The toys are more on his level, so he interacts with them.

There are two schools of thought concerning time travel. The more traditional approach would be that when a time traveler goes back, he can change the events of history. In this version of time travel, there never was a time traveler anywhere in history until the first one moved from his own time period. This would be exemplified in Back to the Future.

The second theory would be that the events of time cannot be changed. The time traveler tries to prevent or cause something, but inadvertently causes history to repeat itself in the exact same manner or fails to change anything at all. The time traveler was always present at this point in time, as well as their starting point.

The Time Turner is based on the second theory. Buckbeak was saved the first time around, but they had to go back in time to be there. The Potter's deaths were in itself proof that no one used a time turner to save them, or no one succeeded in saving them when they did use the time turner. Therefor, it would be useless to try to use the time turner to save them, as it would be theoretically impossible, even with magic.

There is a reason they let a young student use the thing. In all reality it's just a toy.

5: He never freaked out about her not being able to marry a prince. They even made plans to get married THEN he freaked out. Through the whole movie they kept mentioning that the only person the law said she COULD marry was a prince. I just honestly wonder if the person who wrote that even saw the movie.   
10. After they used the time traveling device they learned that they COULDN'T change the past, only realize how they altered things to make the reality that they already lived through.

#2) If she didn't know time travel was possible, there'd be no way for her to think that her son could be in two different times. Even if she did recognize him as her son, it would probably drive her insane. So she probably assumed that it was just a guy who kinda looked like her son.

If midnight is the beginning of each day, then wouldn't it be after midnight all the time?

I always thought the T-rex pushed them off a cliff that was on the opposite side of the road as the T-rex enclosure. because i dont think think the camera ever shows that side, since its always focused on the rex.

It's shown when the balding guy runs into the little restroom on the other side of the road. The T-Rext proceeds to smash le bathroom and eat him. The more you know!

I believe the reason Rowling gives is that people who either see them self or people who see the same person twice at the same time either stand the risk of killing the future version or going insane from the encounter. It isn't well explained in the movie, but it is in the third book. Don't quote me exactly on it.
