Judge's ruling required!

I'm thinking about a classic 80's comedy horror film right now, i am thinking of course about Gremlins. As much as i enjoy this film i've been bothered for a while now by one of the rules than one must agree to adhere to when caring for a mogwai;  From
"Chinese Boy: First of all, keep him out of the light, he hates bright light, especially sunlight, it'll kill him. Second, don't give him any water, not even to drink. But the most important rule, the rule you can never forget, no matter how much he cries, no matter how much he begs, never feed him after midnight."

Ok, now rule one and two are fairly simple to abide by but rule 3.....Never feed him after midnight. Sounds simple right? Wrong! At what point does it make it clear what is classed as being after midnight? Surely anything past 00:00 is after midnight. Think about it, even 5 minutes to midnight is 23:55 hours after midnight. At what point is it safe to feed it? Maybe im just being a bit of an anal retentive but im right surely?

I'll let this slide as it is not as bad as the whole Terminator debacle. For John Connor to exist in the future he has to send Kyle Reese back in time to save his mother and for them to bump uglies. So no matter how many times Sarah Connor kills the Terminator she will have to keep on doing it in a permenant loop otherwise John Connor can never send Kyle back in time. And For Kyle to be sent back in time then Sarah can never truely stop Cyberdyne otherwise none of this would ever happen. If you are lost go watch Back To The Future part II when doc Brown explains the alternate universe because of Biff going back in time and giving himself the sports almanac. If Sarah and Kyle had managed to prevent Cyberdyne from creating a nuclear holocaust in the first film then surely the end of the film would be at the start as if nothing happens and she doesnt meet Kyle and they never make John.

Confused? You should be!
