Dark Phoenix picture

Factual error: The space shuttle is spinning due to a stuck thruster. In such a case, the spin would be continually increasing as there is no air resistance. The X-Men shoot out of the thruster and the spin stops. Not factual. They would have needed opposite thrusters to stop it. (00:11:55)

Ad Astra picture

Factual error: Cepheus is clearly moving at immense speeds to make the journeys it does at the speeds it does. But despite the great speed it seems to have no problem slowing down on a whim for a mayday, then speeding back up again to get to Mars. And if it's got that much power on hand, what are all the solar panels for?

Avengers: Endgame picture

Factual error: New Asgard is in Tonsberg, Norway, but was filmed in Scotland. The truck Hulk and Rocket use to get there has a UK licence plate (SW61 5PN), whereas Norwegian plates use two letters followed by 4 or 5 numbers. Plus the pizza boxes in Thor's house have a phone number in UK format (01632 960776) not Norwegian. In fact, the 01632 area code is specifically designated for fictional use in the UK. Norwegian telephone numbers use fewer digits. (00:48:50)

Suggested correction: The truck doesn't necessarily needs to be from Norway... It could be a donation to people of Asgard or they could have taken it since half the people had vanished. I'm sure they could get away with a license plate, especially with Thor by their side. About the pizzas, I can see Thor flying 2 thousand Miles to get a pizza he saw on TV.

Hobbs & Shaw picture

Factual error: The lorry trailers Shaw drives under have no side bars fitted. This is a legal requirement in the UK and Europe to stop people doing exactly this, also they are fitted for safety reasons to stop people going under the trailer in an accident. (00:37:40)

Alita: Battle Angel picture

Factual error: When Zapan speaks while his face is chopped off, the producers have failed to take into account the importance of mouth and tongue in producing speech. As a cyborg, Zapan could use speakers to produce a voice, but he isn't.

Toy Story 4 picture

Factual error: In the antique shop, Woody is at a point where he's at the center of a tug-o-war between two sides, with the "bad toys" pulling on his draw string for his voice box. The voice box can still be heard spouting its lines, despite the fact that the tension on the string is never released allowing it to draw the string back in, which is what makes the sound. It can't make it's sounds with the string continually out in the pulled position.

Missing Link picture

Factual error: A blunderbuss is fired at a safe. The shot not only bores a hole into the safe but also blasts it out of the window behind it. First, a gun can do no such thing; a cannon can. (The film already establishes that the safe is incredibly heavy.) Second, the hole on the safe is wrong. It is gouged outward as if by an explosion from within. (00:38:10)

Batman: Hush picture

Factual error: It's a superhero movie, but the human Catwoman escapes Batman by jumping off the building, onto a train moving at full speed, in a fall that is shown taking at least 10 floors (first shot, she is still upside down) + another 10 (when she flips so she can land on her feet). Over twenty floors of casual, unassisted freefall jump feel a little over the top already, and again, it's on the top of a moving train, that alone should be impossible to happen the way it does here, not affected by the lateral speed of the train at all. (00:10:40)

Rim of the World picture

Factual error: Dr. Fielding is dead inside the JPL building. His blood is dripping onto a telegraph key and it is sending perfectly comprehensive Morse Code. The blood drips are too random to do that. (01:13:25)
