Watchmen (2009)

Question: For Silk Spectre 2's boots during the prison fight scene, being an alternate universe with very different technology, could she be able to remove her heels from her boots to do the fight scene, then reattach them afterwards?

curiouskid

Chosen answer: Technically possible, however, with absolutely nothing in the film to support such a supposition, something that speculative could not realistically be considered a credible correction for the current mistake covering the topic.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the "Bye, Bye Baby" song the two girls are standing at the railing with two people in between them and the detective. When the shot cuts to their backs the two people in between the detective and the girls have disappeared.

Other mistake: During Dorothy's and the detective's date, they are outside while the boat is moving, yet there is no wind blowing around. Since the ship is moving there should be wing blowing past the two.

curiouskid

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie when Hannah and Jenny touch the rock and are blown away. When Hannah falls through the skylight, her high heeled shoes have become flats.

2012 (2009)

Question: How did the Russian girl end up in the end, did she drown? And if so, why, if the compartments were sealed closed, how would water get into it and kill her, if it didn't kill the others on the other side of the compartment?

curiouskid

Chosen answer: The Russian girl drowned. The boarding gate was not closed properly as it was jammed, so water got in to some of the compartments and drowned the people in them.

Continuity mistake: When Alice comes back out through the rabbit hole her left sleeve is ripped at the seam. Then when she's in the study talking about her business plan, the sleeve is intact and connected to her dress.

Hannah Montana (2006)

Torn Between Two Hannahs - S1-E17

Plot hole: When Lily leaves to go to the limo, Luanne dressed as Hannah stays behind and reveals that Miley is tied up. How can Miley have two identical outfits when it's obvious that all her clothes are one-of-a-kind?

curiouskid

Question: At the end, when Batgirl punches Poison Ivy, making her fall into that huge plant, why did it curl up and capture her, when it's her plant and she can control it?

curiouskid

Chosen answer: Even the greatest animal trainers still get mauled sometimes (i.e. Siegfried and Roy). It's quite likely that the plant didn't turn down a possible meal when she literally fell into its mouth.

LorgSkyegon

Continuity mistake: When Blue Jeans the horse takes off Mileys' wig it disappears from the horse's mouth, then suddenly reappears in Miley's hand.

Zathura (2005)

Trivia: To make the robot in the movie, first they used a small puppet and had the puppeteers under the floor controlling it through sticks. To make the huge robot, they had a "bam bot" for ramming through walls and windows, a technical robot that had all the circuitry to make the antennae move and the nose to steam,and a version where there were only the feet and the body (they would later animate the arms and legs.) The robot was more mechanics than electronics.

Zathura (2005)

Trivia: To make Lisa frozen in the movie, the director had sculptors and painters make a life replica of Kristen Stewart through body scans.

curiouskid

Trivia: At the start of the movie, when Juni says, "To finding lost toys", he finds a toy that bears a resemblance to Grandpa in the red armor in the game when he finds "Megalegs".

curiouskid

Question: When Helen and Madelin have finished fighting and they asked Earnest to fix them, how did he fix the great big hole in Helen's stomach?

curiouskid

Chosen answer: He most likely filled it with something soft, then covered it. You'll notice the lingerie she is wearing completely covers her midsection.

Jason Hoffman

Question: When Helen and Madelin are fighting with the shovels, Helen whacks off the end of Madelin's shovel, and then Madelin throws the stick through Helen. How did they achieve this effect?

curiouskid

Chosen answer: CGI, just like any other difficult effect.

Scooby-Doo (2002)

Continuity mistake: Daphne wears three types of boots in the movie: 1) When she is wrestling with the blue costumed guy at the end, when she jumps over the railing to kick him, it goes to a close-up of her foot hitting him and the heel squishes in. (I'm assuming that this was done so as to not hurt the wrestler being hit with her foot. 2) Later, she kicks up and she is wearing pink flats. 3) In the rest of the film, she wears normal pink go-go boots with a solid heel.

curiouskid

Question: During the revolving door scene, how was Miley able to redo Hannah's make-up over and over again when it took so long for her to do it at the start of the movie before the concert?

curiouskid

Chosen answer: During a concert, a lot of makeup is used to show through the bright lighting. In this case, Miley may have needed little to no makeup. Also, since Travis is shown asking for the check and Miley goes back and forth so much, it may have taken her a long time, which is why she had to run off every time she got to the restaurant after a few seconds.

Batman (1989)

Question: When the Joker and Vicky are going up the cathedral, Vicky trips and loses her left shoe; the Joker kisses it and throws it over the railing. When they reach the top both her shoes are gone and she's barefoot. Where did her right shoe go?

curiouskid

Chosen answer: It's quite hard to walk properly with only one shoe on and the stairs they're climbing are not the most even surfaces in the world. It would make sense that she simply kicked the other one off so that she could walk evenly rather than risk tripping again.
