Toy Story 4 picture

Other mistake: When Jessie pops the tire on the RV, Bonnie's dad gets upset and says "I just bought it." Throughout the rest of the film however, he says the RV is a rental.

Suggested correction: Not exactly a mistake considering he bought a rental.

That's a self-contradicting statement. Buying something means you have ownership of it. Renting something means you pay for its use with the understanding that it will be returned at a specified time. You can't buy a rental any more than you can rent something you buy.

Suggested correction: At best it's a character mistake. As he was exasperated as Bonnie's mother says to her "Daddy's going to use some words" apparently meaning he was going to swear.

If it's a character mistake, it's still a mistake, so no correction is needed. I think it's a valid other mistake because it's the screen writers flipping back between owning and renting, but not an actual plot hole. I've been exasperated with a rental before and never in my anger or frustration said I bought the rented item.

Captain Marvel picture

Other mistake: Vers saves Fury, blowing a hole in the ceiling and somehow getting to the upper floor (why she does not blast holes for the remaining floors as well is unclear). They should be then at -4 from the -5 they were in, but they are shown ascending a flight of stairs, at the top of which Coulson lets them enter the door for level -4.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker picture

Other mistake: When Kylo/Ben leaves the Endor system to go to Exogol, he takes an old Imperial TIE Fighter he supposedly found in the Death Star remains. However, it is established in the previous films that that TIE fighters are short range fighters that are not equipped with a hyperdrive.

Suggested correction: A TIE fighter would never survive the death star crash. Kylo/Ben probably called for a TIE and took that.

But it's an old Imperial TIE, not a new First Order one.

Good point.

Child's Play picture

Other mistake: Andy and his friends are watching "Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2" in one scene. However, the scenes they watch are completely out of order compared to the actual film.

Suggested correction: Actually this is simply a movie convention. When kids watch films onscreen, they deliberately only show the best bits of the film as oppose to just playing the film normally. Otherwise it would look dull and pointless.

Gavin Jackson

Explaining why a mistake exists doesn't invalidate them. Skipping time or jump cuts is one thing, showing scenes from a movie kids are watching out of order, without a valid in-film reason, is still a mistake.

Bishop73

The issue isn't that they aren't showing the whole movie. They did the right thing by just showing clips, since it illustrates a passage of time. The issue is that the clips they show are all out of order. (You'll see one from the ending of the movie, then one from the beginning, then another from the ending, then one from the middle, etc.) They could have just as easily shown a couple clips in order from throughout the film, and it would have worked, but they chose not to for some bizarre reason.

Stuber picture

Other mistake: Vic and Stu get into a shoot out inside the animal hospital with some thugs, guns firing all over the place. The building is full of animals like dogs and cats and parrots. However, the animals stay completely calm and quiet during the entire gun fight and seem unaffected by the rapid, very loud banging of gun fire. Even right after it, a cat that just had it's tail stepped on sits on a dead body and meows like nothing happened. This is completely uncharacteristic of how animals would act to loud gunfire in an enclosed building, especially in a vet's. (00:45:00)

Godzilla: King of the Monsters picture

Other mistake: When Godzilla emerges from the sea towards the end of the movie, what is he standing on? You can see the submarine at the side of him so the water must be reasonably deep. Then he just swims away. (01:37:15)

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.

Avengers: Endgame picture

Other mistake: Scott arrives in the park and sees hundreds of memorials listing people who were killed by Thanos. In the first close-up shot shown of one of the memorials, the name Norbert Lamey can be seen five rows from the top on the right hand side. The camera then pans to Scott walking in front of the memorial to the right of it. The name Norbert Lamey can be seen repeated on the opposite side of the memorial Scott stands in front of. (00:24:25)

The Lion King picture

Other mistake: When Pumba is singing and they show him as a baby warthog farting in the water killing the butterfly, it is actually a baby Red River hog that is portrayed.

Shaft picture

Other mistake: During the restaurant shoot out between Jr and the bad guys, he takes Sasha's weapon (Kel-Tec P-3AT) and opens fire on the bad guys. The Kel-Tec P-3AT is chambered in .380 and holds 6+1 rounds. During the firefight, Jr fires 9 times. We also see the bottom of a spent casing and it shows .22. (01:12:00 - 01:13:00)

Shazam! picture

Other mistake: Shazam catches the bus and everyone's fine. But really, how is him catching the bus at a dead stop 6 feet off the ground any better than it hitting solid ground a fraction of a second later? He's not magically cushioning everyone on the bus.

Blinded by the Light picture

Other mistake: The lead is loaned cassettes of 'Darkness on the Edge of Town' and 'Born in the USA' by his mate and then quotes a lyric from 'The River' which he hasn't listened to yet.

Hobbs & Shaw picture

Other mistake: Deckard and Hattie were children at the same time, with Deckard appearing to be no more than 3 years older than Hattie. Although Jason Statham is presumably playing a character younger than he actually is, he is still noticeably much older than his on-screen sister. Jason Statham is in fact 21 years older than Vanessa Kirby.

Suggested correction: And people can age faster than others depending on the stress they've been under.

Ssiscool Premium member

Even taking things like stress and hard living into account, Jason Statham is still much older looking than the character he is supposed to be playing. Or are you saying that he's under so much stress that, while he is in otherwise outstanding shape, his face is that of a man in his late 40's to early 50's? He looks at the very least 10 years older than the character is aparently supposed to be.

Doctor Sleep picture

Other mistake: The type of gas pump Danny used when gassing up the car requires the lever be moved from the on to off position before the hose can be placed back into the pump. It is already in the off position before he finishes.

1917 picture

Other mistake: At the start of the trench running scene where the soldiers charge, keep looking at the far left of the screen. You will see a small group of soldiers already running who were not in the trenches. In addition, they seem to be running without weapons.

Joker picture

Other mistake: In a city of millions and millions of inhabitants, when the protagonist chases his neighbour till she enters the building in William Street, the taxi that passes in front of him as he crosses the road is the same taxi with license plate T 9362 that nearly ran him over at the very beginning when he was trying to get his sign back. Which incidentally is a model of Chevy Caprice post-1981 (likely a 1987 Caprice). (00:02:25 - 00:24:35)

Dark Phoenix picture

Other mistake: Despite taking place roughly 30 years after "X-Men: First Class," Xavier and Magneto have hardly even aged. Both would have been in their late 20's at the youngest in "First Class" and in this film neither looks any older than 40. It's not because of their mutant powers either - only Wolverine and Mystique were specifically mentioned as having a slower rate of aging because of their powers.

Knives Out picture

Other mistake: During the revelation of the second death, when the killer opens the toxicology report they just retrieved, the date is revealed; it says it was issued on 09/27/2018. But the events of the movie happen in November (it's Sunday 18th Nov when Marta wakes up with all the reporters at her door). It should also be noted that when a close-up of the report was shown earlier (when Ransom was looking at the anonymous letter brought by Marta) that copy had a big stamp in a corner saying 11-17-18, that in this copy is totally absent. (01:56:55)
