Trivia: There are no inserts of any of the actors in the funeral scene at the end of the film. Everyone pictured is actually there. The Russo Brothers have called it, "The most complicated scheduling shot in the history of cinema." (Source: Film School Rejects).

A Few Good Men (1992)

Trivia: Aaron Sorkin wrote "A Few Good Men" on cocktail napkins while he was a waiter at the Palace Theater. He would scribble notes on the napkins when he had a chance and get home with his pockets stuffed with them.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film, the two surviving characters are banging on the bottom of the glass-bottomed tour boat. In the following exterior shot of the boat, they are several meters away from it.

Factual error: Like so many other films that take place underwater, this one makes the mistake of having characters who can hear each other underwater despite not wearing earpieces and having their ears exposed to the water.

Continuity mistake: When the main characters first decide to go diving, they are all wearing ordinary bikinis. By the end of the film, the surviving characters are wearing diving suits.

Extraction (2020)

Factual error: Both Nik Khan (Golshifteh Farahani) and the Colonel (Shataf Figar) are shown lining up their targets perfectly with the cross hairs in their rifle scopes. This is a common error in films. In real life, adjustments are made for wind and gravity, and the target is almost never lined up exactly in the crosshairs. Not only that, everyone in the film using sniper rifles makes several perfect kill shots, all on the first attempt and all without a spotter. Useful for movies, but extremely unlikely in real life.

Extraction (2020)

Factual error: The river that Tyler Rake falls into near the end of the film, the Buriganga, is one of the most polluted rivers not only in Bangladesh, but in the world. There is no way the water is as clear as it appears when Tyler falls into it. It was done for effect, but nonetheless it's not accurate.

Uncut Gems (2019)

Factual error: The 2012 NBA conference semifinals took place between May 12th and May 26th of that year. Passover in 2012 began on April 6th and ended on April 14th. A Seder would not have taken place during the semis of that year.

Uncut Gems (2019)

Factual error: Mohegan Sun casino is in the state of Connecticut. Connecticut does not have legalized sports betting and did not have it in 2012, when the film is set, therefore Julia would not have been able to place Howard's bet.

Underwater (2020)

Other mistake: *Spoiler Alert* The strength of the underwater suits is wildly inconsistent. Rodrigo's suit almost immediately cracks and implodes, killing him. Paul's suit is easily ripped open by the creatures, also killing him, but Norah is repeatedly slammed into the sea floor by one of the creatures and her suit remains remarkably intact.

Suggested correction: It is stated by one of the survivors that one of the helmets was damaged. Rodrigo had the damaged one.

Actually, that's not completely accurate. She says something like "Faulty, I knew they were faulty." That also doesn't account for the fact that the creatures tore Paul right out of his suit, but couldn't seem to do the same with Norah.

His suit was faulty. He noticed a crack when he first picked it to put it on.

Continuity mistake: ***SPOILER ALERT*** Towards the end of the film, when one of the Manson Family members falls into the pool, we see the water turn red with blood. When Dalton comes back with the flamethrower, the water is clear.

Factual error: When Cliff is driving back to his trailer at night, he drives past a lit Subway restaurant sign. The first Subway on the West Coast did not open until 1978 in Fresno.

Factual error: When Cliff is driving home on the freeway, just before he takes the off-ramp, a numbered exit sign is visible. California did not adopt numbered exits until 2002.

Factual error: On the Hollywood 101 freeway, concrete "K" rails can be seen in the center divider. In 1969, the older steel rails were still in use in California.

Continuity mistake: In this film, Prince Caspian speaks with an English accent. However, in the previous film "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian", he spoke with a Mediterranean accent.

Black Panther (2018)

Black Panther mistake picture

Factual error: During the mid-credits scene T'Challa is addressing the United Nations about Wakanda's true nature. A Welsh flag can be seen among the other nation's flags, which would suggest that Wales is a separate nation from The United Kingdom - not the case.

Continuity mistake: During the opening scene with Ego and Quill's mother, they run into the woods behind the Dairy Queen, and mom is wearing boots with fur trim. When they get to where the Ego's plant is in the ground, she is suddenly wearing sandals.
