The Irishman picture

Factual error: While handling the ignition coil cable to the distributor cap, Joe Pesci tells De Niro that the timing chain needs adjustment in his truck. The timing chain on the Chevy OHV 6 cylinder in this scene is behind the water pump and a cover. It would have been a several hour job to replace, not possible to adjust.

New this month Suggested correction: A truck of that year with an inline Chevy motor would not have a timing chain at all, instead this truck would be equipped with a direct drive timing gear.

Rocketman picture

Other mistake: During one of the recording studio scenes, there's a short segment that shows a bunch of VU (audio level) meters close up. The very first meter in that sequence is not a VU meter. Its from of an old HF (High Frequency) Amateur Radio transceiver; The scale is marked for RF, SWR, and ALC. I'm suspecting that someone involved with the post production editing is a Ham.

The Two Popes picture

New this month Factual error: Pope Benedict and Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio are hanging out in the room by the Sistine Chapel having a pizza and a drink together. The drink of choice is Fanta, apparently Joseph Ratzinger's favourite beverage. The scene is supposed to happen in 2012, but the label of the bottle is a more modern one, introduced in 2016.

The Dirt picture

Continuity mistake: After Mick Mars has Nikki and Tommy kick the guy out with the guitar at his audition, the guy leaves and cries through the door. Nikki is standing by the door and looking nearly straight forward as the guy leaves, but then the camera changes angles and suddenly he's looking more to the side towards the door. Also his arms are a little higher up holding his guitar.
