Rescue from Gilligan's Island picture

Other mistake: At the end of the movie, when everybody wonders where they are, Gilligan holds up a piece of wood that says Minnow-1, making everybody realise they are back on the island. The name of the boat was known as the S.S. Minnow, and not Minnow-1.

Superman picture

Other mistake: When Superman and Lois are flying through the clouds, there are a number of shots in which we see Superman from Lois' point of view. If you look closely, you can see that Christopher Reeve is not being suspended in these shots, but is, in fact, kneeling to look as though he is flying. You can tell by the profile of the red trunks.

Suggested correction: I looked closely into it, but I was unable to verify this mistake. Looks to me even in slow motion that his eyes do not wander at all.

Game of Death picture

Other mistake: When the bad guys are taking the cash from the vault, they finish with just 3 duffel bags. Yet there are blocks of cash along all the walls, roughly 25 times as big as what they're taking. With the duffel bags supposedly containing $100 million, there would be tens of billions of dollars for the taking. Their escape route is up the elevator to the roof, and into a helicopter. What bad guys wouldn't take all they could carry?

The Wiz picture

Other mistake: During the subway scene, when Dorothy, Tin Man and Scarecrow are trapped behind the red fence, there is no lock on the door in the fence. The door bounced once before falling shut, so it's probably not stuck. So how are Dorothy, Tin Man and Scarecrow unable to push it open?
