Corrected entry: The TX cuts through the particle accelerator with its inbuilt saw, but the machine was on. This was trapping it and the liquid metal, making it unable to move. Somehow it is able to activate the saw without that too being caught by the magnetic field. Not to mention it was able to hold the entire saw completely steady while activating it.Lummie
Corrected entry: As the Terminator cuts open his skin to get the damaged fuel cell out, the initial incision spot changes a couple of times, as does the position of where he's cutting. One moment, it's mid-upper sternum, the next, mid-right pectoral, much too fast between cuts, even though he is a cyborg. He has to take care not to damage vital operating systems.

Corrected entry: Why did the T-850 hesitate to shoot the T-X with the grenade launcher before the T-X fatally shoots Brewster? There's no reason why he would hesitate after he shoots her with the automatic weapon since the T-X had already fallen, only to get back up slowly ready to attack again, especially when he already knows that Brewster is one of her targets. This could have been explained if he had been distracted, but he was not.sidearmsalpha
Corrected entry: When John breaks into the animal clinic, he gets shot with his own "paintball gun. A real paintball gun is easily 4 or 5 times the size of a real handgun, and could never be disguised as the 9mm model shown. A real paintball gun requires a large co2 cartridge, and the paintballs fired are around the size of a quarter, much larger than 9mm. Even though some paintball cartridges are made that can be fired from conventional firearms for training purposes, the guns still need extensive and noticeable modifications, which his gun doesn't have.

Corrected entry: Skynet exists. It is a Belgian Internet provider, a spin-off of the former national phone company.
Corrected entry: In the government facility, the backfire from the flying terminator's boosters would have at least singed JC's & KB's hair while flying over them.
Corrected entry: This is one shot that is in all 3 movies. When Arnold gets on a motorcycle there is a shot of his foot. As the shot continues you see the camera pan up as Arnold turns around on the bike. (00:30:40)
Corrected entry: At the pet clinic, John escapes the cage and runs out in the hall, only to find a terminator. John asks the terminator if it is there to kill him. It seems like a waste of breath as no evil terminator gives a second thought about killing. Had the machine been a bad terminator, can't it be assumed he would have fired the shotgun at him sometime during that walk toward him?
Corrected entry: At the cemetery the T-850 throws the casket through the back window of the hearse - obviously breaking the glass. A few moments later, Connor opens the casket and talks with the T-850 (now in the driver's seat). The back window, behind Connor's head, is now intact.
Corrected entry: In the first movie, Dr. Silberman asks Kyle Reese why Skynet didn't just kill John Connor in the future instead of the elaborate time travel scheme with the Terminator. Reese answers, "We'd won. Taking out Connor then would make no difference." So why did Skynet send the Terminator to kill Connor in 2032?
Corrected entry: When the huge magnet is functional, John's gun and the TX are drawn to it, and John and Kate run away. However, it's almost impossible there wasn't a single ferromagnetic thing on John and Kate. How come their belt clips, or the guns in John's bag, or the chargers in John's back pocket weren't drawn to the magnet?
Corrected entry: When Catherine's father walks through the corridor of the military base, on his way to the first test of the flying Hunter Killers, he is accompanied by a female civilian employee who is wearing a yellow blouse. The top two buttons of her blouse are undone and you can see a fair bit of cleavage. Though not subject to anything like military standards, civilian employees on US military bases are required to dress "modestly and with decorum". She might get away with one button undone, but two? No chance at all.
Corrected entry: When Skynet comes online, the Skynet techie refers to the system speed in teraflop/s, or Tera (Trillion) Floating point Operations per Second, or basically how many operations with decimals it's executing per second. Knowing how many teraflop/s the system is running at would be virtually useless, as the AI portion of Skynet, which must by definition be the most computer intensive portion, would execute with integer numbers and logical branching. That is not measured by flop/s, but rather by MIPS, Millions of Instructions Per Second.
Corrected entry: When the TX (disguised as Kate's boyfriend) punches it's arm through the police officer, it grabs the wheel and takes control of the vehicle. When the vehicle arrives, you see the TX get out of the rear of the vehicle, meaning she was in the back seat driving the whole time. In the back seat, the TX may have been able to control the stearing wheel and maybe the gearstick, but she would not have been able to control the accelerator, brake or clutch, making driving the car virtually impossible, not to mention stopping it.

Corrected entry: If the computer and TV are down, how come the store clerk at the gas station uses the phone?
