Reservoir Dogs

Continuity mistake: When Mr. White is trying to calm Mr. Orange in the warehouse White pulls out a comb and uses it on Orange then goes to put it in his pocket, but lays it on Orange's chest and never picks it back up. In the next sequence when talking to Mr.Pink, White washes his hands and face, puts some water in his hair, pulls a comb out of his pocket and uses it. (00:13:05)

Suggested correction: He combs his own hair and Mr. Orange's when neither are necessary. Can definitely see a guy like that carrying more than one comb. They don't take up much pocket space anyway.

Other mistake: When Mr. Blonde is torturing the cop he is listening to the radio (Stuck In the Middle With You). However, when Mr. Orange shoots and kills Mr. Blonde the radio mysteriously shuts off.

Suggested correction: The radio doesn't shut off, it is just difficult to hear over the shouting in the scene.

No. The music turns off. Soon as Mr. Blonde is executed, there is no shouting. It is almost deathly quiet as we watch Mr. Orange still holding the gun, and Mr. Blonde fall to the floor. This mistake is a valid entry.

Continuity mistake: When Mr Blonde cuts the ear off the cop, we cut to a shot of him holding the ear, it is covered in blood. However, when we cut to a shot of Mr Blonde talking into the ear, there is no blood on the ear.

Chosen answer: Having just been shot a second time, he was probably dying by that point. He'd done many extremely questionable things - even murdered an innocent mom - and stood by as other terrible crimes were committed in his presence. He'd grown close to Mr. White, who'd just murdered two friends and taken a bullet for Orange's sake - even as Mr. Orange was betraying him all along. So partly this was about his attachment to Mr. White, and partly a death wish stemming from his own guilt about his actions. He knew full well what would happen but told Mr. White anyway, disregarding the consequences.
