South Park (1997)

Follow That Egg - S9-E10

Corrected entry: If Mrs. Garrison hands out real eggs to the kids to use, wouldn't the eggs get rotten after not being refrigerated?

Correction: Unwashed eggs don't need to be refrigerated - in the UK at least, they're sold and stored at room temperature. If these eggs were freshly laid they'd last just fine.

Correction: With all the scientific improbabilities & impossibilities that occur within this series, it is very doubtful.

Logan (2017)

Corrected entry: When Logan, Laura and the professor are driving towards the horse trailer notice the red tractor trailer coming towards them. It is the rear end of the truck (there is no rig and you can actually see the mud flaps in front of the tires.) It looks as if the truck is driving down the highway backwards.



Correction: Both ends of the trailer are the same - these are self-driving vehicles, hence no need for a driver's cab at the front. They're basically just containers on wheels. We occasionally hear them making warning announcements in the background.

Corrected entry: Stifler starts telling the two "lesbians" the story about how he accidentally drank a beer full of semen in the first film. However, he says "One time at this party, I was drinking champagne..."


Correction: He's referring to the scene at the start of this movie, where he thinks a girl is pouring champagne on him, but it's actually John Cho above, urinating off the balcony.

Corrected entry: Old man hums "I love you", the Barney song, released in 1998. Movie takes place in 1977.

Correction: The tune is the same as that from "This Old Man", an older song. Http://

The Pacific (2010)

Iwo Jima - S1-E8

Corrected entry: When the episode cuts to the Iwo Jima invasion, the screen caption states "February 1945/D-Day, Iwo Jima." D-Day was the June 6th, 1944 invasion of Normandy Beach in France, NOT the invasion of Iwo Jima. You'd think they could get such a well known, crucial piece of the history that this miniseries is about, correct.


Correction: D-Day, while most commonly used to refer to the Normandy landings, is actually a general military term, like H Hour.

Corrected entry: Batman has 3 minutes to change out of his armour, get in the Batwing, find out where Martha is being held, fly there, beat up all the bad guys guarding her, and then save her - no chance.

Correction: He seems to get out of his armour and into the Batwing quickly, but we just don't see him making the change. We see the timer at 10 minutes when he's already in flight - given he just has to fly across the harbour, and clears out the bad guys fairly swiftly and in mostly real time, he's got enough time to do it.

The Punisher (2004)

Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie when Saint's men are shooting the Castle family, there is a scene where one of the family members tries to ride off on a motorcycle. One of Saint's men shoots him in the back and he falls off next to the bike. Later on Frank runs over to the bike and takes off on it, but in the long shot of Frank running to the motorcycle, the body is gone.

Correction: The shot of the bike coming to a stop, with the body a short distance away, shows the body about 10 feet to the left of the bike. The shot of Castle running towards it is from behind the bike, and columns and curtains are blocking the view of where the body is.

Dave (1993)

Corrected entry: When Bob Alexander and Alan Reed run into Tip O'Neill on the street, they refer to him as "Mr. Speaker." However, later in the film, at the joint session of Congress, the Speaker of the House is not Mr. O'Neill, but an actor.

Michael Albert

Correction: Tip O'Neill had already long-since retired by the time this film came out - calling him "Mr. Speaker" is just a mark of respect, the same way past presidents are still referred to as "Mr. President."

Jon Sandys

Corrected entry: In "The Wolverine", the Silver Samurai completely melted out Wolverine's adamantium claws and his bone claws returned. Yet in the scenes in this movie that take place after these events, Wolverine is shown back with his adamantium claws.

Casual Person

Correction: The only scenes set after The Wolverine are set many years in the future, with plenty of time for Wolverine to have had the adamantium reapplied to his claws.

Jon Sandys

Corrected entry: When Pitch destroys Tooth's land Santa suggest that the guardians become the new fairies. Tooth then says that they would have visit 7 continents and billions of kids. Why would they visit Antarctica if no one lives on it.

Correction: From Wikipedia: Several Antarctic bases are now home to families, with children attending schools at the station. In 2009, eleven children were born in Antarctica.

Right Place Right Time - S4-E22

Corrected entry: When the first error in Barney's list is discovered, they come to the conclusion that he's only slept with 198 women, so Marshall's previous figure of a 1.195913451538% success rate is slightly off. Marshall says that Barney's "only half a percent less gross than we thought." But using 198 girls in Marshall's equation results in a success rate of 1.18990461538%, which is nowhere near a difference of 0.5%.


Correction: 1.1959% minus half a percent is 1.1899%, ie. fitting exactly with what Marshall says. Subtracting 0.5 wouldn't be half a percent, as 0.5 is a large proportion of 1.1959 (42%, in fact).

Corrected entry: The CERN scientist is killed at the start of the movie so his eye can be used to bypass the security system. Yet his body is found *inside* the secure section the eye would give access to. Meaning either the assassin broke into that secure section then took out the eye (impossible) or else attacked him somewhere outside that secure section, removed his eye...but then dragged his body along for the ride anyway.

Correction: As Vittoria approaches the secure room, she walks past a part-open door. She then accesses the secure room and finds the blood and eye. There's then a cut as she reacts, panicked, and we then see her standing in this part-open doorway, looking at the body. Clearly we aren't shown her walking back to this other room, but that's where the body was left - outside the secure area.

Twilight (2008)

Corrected entry: At the beginning, when Charlie and Bella are walking into the house and just about to go up the stairs, if you look at the upper right of the screen towards the living room, you can see presumably a crew member standing there, as no-one else is meant to be in the house.


Correction: It's just a jacket hanging on the back of a door.

Casino Royale (2006)

Corrected entry: In the torture scene, LeChiffre tells Bond that he needs the account number from Vesper and he will easily get it by torturing her. However, before the torture scene, LeChiffre threw Vesper out of the car and onto the road whereupon Bond wrecks his car and is captured. It makes no sense for LeChiffre to risk Vesper's life by throwing her out onto the road in front of Bond's car until after he gets the account number from her. If Bond hits Vesper with the car, she's dead and the account number goes with her. It only makes sense for LeChiffre to cause Bond to crash by throwing Vesper onto the road if LeChiffre knows that Bond will miss her and crash; but of course there's no way for LeChiffre to know that.

Correction: That's only a mistake from our point of view earlier in the film - given Vesper's involvement, there's no way to be sure that she's not given him the number voluntarily already, meaning he doesn't actually need her alive (callous but true) so can take any risks with her he likes. Regardless at most it's a character mistake.

Corrected entry: Jason must not have any super powers at all because Jason is the son of Clark Kent. Not Superman. As we all know in Superman II, Superman gave all his super powers up before he went to bed with Lois. He was just Clark Kent.

Correction: Except we don't know how his powers were removed - considering they're a by-product of our yellow sun (and that they were restored later) they can't just have been taken away from him. Most likely they were somehow suppressed, meaning that they were still present within him, just unusable, and that would mean they could still be passed on to a child.

King Kong (2005)

Corrected entry: Wireless framed glasses were not available during the supposed time era of the film.

Correction: They most certainly were - this website shows some dating from 1880-1920.

King Kong (2005)

Corrected entry: In the end, Anne climbs to the top of the Empire State building on a ladder that breaks where Kong then saves her once more and gets her up the rest of the way to the top. After Kong falls however, Jack some how makes it to the top despite the broken ladder.

Correction: No reason there couldn't be another ladder on the other side...

Blade (1998)

Corrected entry: At the end of the first fight scene when Blade has nailed Quinn to the wall, why doesn't he disintegrate having been nailed to the wall with the silver stakes as other vampires had before?

Correction: Blade himself expresses surprise at having difficulty killing Quinn, and says that silver's not worked before, hence trying fire this time. He would have stayed around to check the job was finished but the police showed up.

Jon Sandys

Corrected entry: In the conversation scene between Mr. Atto and general Garrisson, we see sunglasses and an ash tray placed on the table. In the next shot the ash tray moves to different place and the sunglasses switch position.


Correction: The two shots of the table are from opposite sides of it, which is why they appear to have swapped sides.

End of Days (1999)

Corrected entry: In the first scene that we meet Arnold (when Kevin Pollack meets him in his apartment), Arnold starts throwing all kinds of stuff into his blender for breakfast (an obvious ripoff of "Men at Work"); the blender is filled to the absolute top, but then is a good 3-4 inches from the top of the container when he puts the lid on.

Correction: The final thing he puts in is a slice of pizza, which doesn't fit into the blender too well, leaving the gap at the top. When he presses the button, the bit of pizza gets sucked into the rest of the mix (we actually see this happen), leaving the gap above the liquid more visible.
