Passengers picture

Factual error: During the 31st year of the Avalon's voyage, the ship passes close to the star Arcturus, which is about 37 light years from Earth. Later in the movie, it was stated that the Avalon was moving at around 50% of the speed of light. The ship would not have reached Arcturus in the time allotted.

Doctor Strange picture

Factual error: In the first scene where Dr Strange is preparing for surgery he uses improper surgical gowning technique breaking aseptic protocols. Strange puts on a mask after washing his hands, contaminating his clean hands by bringing them in proximity to the non-sterile environment of his face. Surgical masks must be worn before the full washing of hands. Another error is that he inserted his hands all the way through his gown to don gloves. Hands must never leave the sleeves and gloves must be put on with the sleeves still covering.

The Lost City of Z picture

Plot hole: When the group is walking through the jungle for the 2nd time, they have nothing more than their backpacks and a horse to accompany them. Suddenly we see them rowing down a river on a boat and raft. After making peace with the savages, when they have to let a group member go to get medical help, they have been washed ashore as they have been traveling on a single raft since the canoe was damaged by spear attack. How is it that they had a horse and an Indian guide to send away with their injured man? (01:16:55)

The Legend of Tarzan picture

Continuity mistake: The doctor starts out carrying a Holland and Holland "Royal" Double Rifle; but when he and Tarzan pursue the train, the doctor loses his H&H rifle in the leap from a cliff. Lo and behold, after they commandeer the train and disembark, the doctor is inexplicably carrying his H&H Double Rifle again. The H&H is not a common rifle, even today, and his chances of just discovering an exact replacement aboard the train is beyond coincidental.
