Zack Snyder's Justice League picture

Other mistake: After realising they can track the mother box, Batman says they have to go back to his base to use one of his satellites to track it, and they all do so. Which completely ignores the fact that Cyborg could easily access the satellite feed directly using his abilities and display it to the others on any nearby screen in Star Labs.

Suggested correction: Just because he had many options available to him, does not mean that the option which he chose was wrong.

Nobody picture

Continuity mistake: In one scene after Hutch is beaten up on the bus, he has no facial injuries. Then in the next scene, they are back.

Godzilla vs. Kong picture

Factual error: Let's go by the movie geography; our planet is a big matrioska. By diagrams shown, this Hollow Earth would be by the Earth's core, thousands of miles deep. They enter from a portal in Antarctica. And yet, Godzilla later in the movie burns a random hole in the ground in HK deep enough to reach it, roars through it and Kong hears it, and the ape easily climbs it to poke back to the surface. Even admitting you can do the magic "1,000 miles in 2 seconds" warp anywhere, the scale is ludicrous.

Black Widow picture

Factual error: The sisters run out of fuel for the helicopter, which is then shown slamming down on the ground and essentially destroying itself. All helicopters are capable of autorotating safely to the ground in the event the engine(s) quit. Of course, that would not have been as dramatic. (01:05:15)

Suggested correction: You may have noticed the helicopter was severely damaged, it may not have any rotating capabilities left after the fuel was gone.

lionhead

I did notice it, but it did not look that any damage would prevent it from autorotation.

toroscan

Perhaps the sisters (not being experienced helicopter pilots) couldn't use the autorotation properly.

OK, while that may be a possibility, if they have a helicopter pilot's license they would have had to demonstrate autorotation as part of both the curriculum and the practical exam. But listen, it's just a movie. The way they did it makes it more dramatic.

Army of the Dead picture

Factual error: There is no way in hell they can carry $200,000,000 in cash (over 4,000lbs), let alone load it on the helicopter.

Suggested correction: They never did and it was never the idea. They simply didn't figure out it's not physically possible. They took as much as they could from the vault in the much more limited time they had, and never got any of it to the helicopter (except for 1 small stack) anyway.

lionhead

It's true that the team was not meant to recover all the money, but they didn't know that going in. How did Ward and Peters, who seem reasonably smart, not consider the weight when planning the heist? The deal Ward believed was "get paid $50 million to recover $200 million" not "grab what you can and good luck"

I suppose it could be counted as a stupidity, but I'm not sure anyone is really aware of the weight of 200 million in cash, even reasonably smart people. Never seen it, never weighed it.

Outside the Wire picture

Factual error: Lt. Harp is told by Capt. Leo that the Lieutenant has 56,000h of UAV flying time, That is ridiculous. Even seasoned pilots of the Military Airlift Command do not have that many hours. Drone pilots can fly up to 1,800 hours a year, and Harp hasn't been flying drones for 31 years straight.

Tom Clancy's Without Remorse picture

Factual error: In the nighttime hostage rescue scene, the rescue helicopter has its right and green navigation lights on, which are designed to show other aircraft where it is and which direction it is heading. This of course would not be the case while staging a clandestine operation in hostile territory.

Cruella picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene about the upcoming show the Baroness states she needs 12 key looks. She turns to count what she has and pulls down 10 looks that fill the board. When she turns back to face the staff she comments on the need for 10 looks.

Mortal Kombat picture

Factual error: When Jax's SUV is hit by ice it punctures the body but the windows remain intact. (00:21:26)

Movie Medic

Suggested correction: I didn't see any ice puncture the body, certainly not any that would break any window. Later you see dents in the hood, but that doesn't mean the windows should be broken. I've had severe hail damage in real life where the body of the car was dented without any windows being cracked.

Bishop73

At 22:54 you will see multiple dents into the hood up to about an 1-2" deep. At 27:35 you will see multiple dents so deep that the paint is gone and the bare body is showing. Sorry, at that force the windows would at least cracked if not more.

Movie Medic

The glass used in car windshields is about a quarter inch thick, seven times thicker than the sheet metal used in body panels. It is also about five times stronger. It wouldn't necessarily break or crack.

The Marksman picture

Factual error: The scope Jim is using is completely wrong (yes I know he tested the wind using dirt) but as a U.S.M.C. Marksman his scope would have had mil-dots on both the horizontal and vertical bars. (00:04:24)

The Suicide Squad picture

Continuity mistake: An personal assistant brings news about the attack on Jotunheim. Suarez turns towards her holding a sheet, but in the previous shot he already threw the document on the desk striking a pensive pose. (01:22:05)

Continuity mistake: Viola and Todd both can't sleep. Viola is laying in bed without shoes. Todd enters Viola's sleeping room. She now wears shoes. (01:02:11)

Fear of Rain picture Fear of Rain mistake picture

Factual error: There is a calendar in a scene towards the end of the movie which shows the date as Wednesday April 30, 2021 but the calendar does not align to the days of a real calendar. That date will be a Friday. (01:25:54)

Midnight in the Switchgrass picture

Revealing mistake: The "bridge" within the crime scene tape is obviously a prop. It should be a continuation of the road, but it is tilted to the left and is more vertical (around 45┬░). The bridge isn't even very high. When Byron and others go under the bridge to look at the dead girl, there is only a few feet above their heads (clearance under the bridge). (00:04:54)

Space Sweepers picture

Other mistake: When the assassin is trapped inside the airlock with Tiger, she chokes him, and he collapses. The assassin then begins to walk back to the door to the ship, but just as she is about to open the door, Tiger sneaks up behind her and opens the airlock. There is no way she wouldn't have heard Tiger approaching her. The space was very confined and would have heard his footsteps whilst walking up to her. (01:52:05)

Dark Web: Cicada 3301 picture

Factual error: Morse code is supposedly being transmitted by the blinking street lights. They supposedly spell "For 3veryth5h1ng that 7iv3s is holy." I know Morse code. It was just a random scattering of letters. (01:00:05)

Hero Dog: The Journey Home picture

Factual error: After the HEAVY rain and losing his supplies during the storm, Max (Royce's adolescent son) told his sister he needed to find two very dry pieces of wood to be able to make a fire. Everything in the woods would have been soaked, but Max quickly found two "very dry" logs and was able to make a friction fire (in record speed).

Wrath of Man picture

Continuity mistake: The way "H" was lying on the road after getting shot was different in the aerial view shown shortly thereafter. H's body motions after getting shot were awkward enough - falling backwards but somehow managing to twist his body so that he could land facing the culprits. His body ended up being at about a 45┬░angle to the road barricades, but was parallel in the aerial view. Also, the road barriers would have blocked his view of the shooter and the ability of the shooter to look into his eyes. (01:13:35 - 01:13:56)
