Rush Hour (1998)

Corrected entry: At the part where Soo Yung and the 2 Asian guys are in traffic, then diverted down the side street, you can see plenty of people walking the streets right before and when they are stopped. Then Sang shoots and kills the two guys and fights with Soo Yung. It's "rush hour" in Los Angeles in a busy section, why does no one witness this? (00:11:00)

Timothy Conard

Correction: It's downtown in L.A. Pretty much self explanatory. An area with a large crime rate and notorious for criminal retaliation against snitches and witnesses. It was noticed, but shrugged off.

Goldeneye (1995)

Corrected entry: The direction of the train hostage scene is all wrong. After the train crashes into the tank, 007 enters and beats Trevelyan to the gun on the ground, he then holds Trevelyan and Xenia at gunpoint. General Ourumov then enters the scene again, behind Bond, holding Natalya hostage himself, at gunpoint. As Bond and Alec Trevelyan negotiate the situation, Ourumov just stands patiently with a gun, all while Bond still has his back to him.. what is to negotiate? Ourumov can blow 007 away at any time and still James Bond pays him little to no attention, always keeping his gun focused on the unarmed pair 10+ feet away from him. (01:28:36)

Correction: I think it can be assumed Bond knows full well what Ourumov is up to behind his back, considering how quickly he does turn and kill him when he gets round to it. Plus, Ourumov is waiting for a signal from Trevelyan (which is delivered by a quick flick of his head after he says "See you in hell, James"), so it can be assumed he's been ordered not to kill until then.

Your explanation doesn't make my point any less valid. It's all "Hollywood" and I get that.

Rush Hour (1998)

Corrected entry: After Carter and Lee enter Azteca Pool Billiards near the beginning, Carter busts the old man for having "cigga-weed". Why on earth does he put the still burning joint in his jacket pocket?

Timothy Conard

Correction: He's probably saving it for himself since he smokes weed. This is shown when he tries to visit Clyde in prison and is talking to the guard.

Corrected entry: When the chancellor's speech is completed at Zion, he is about to introduce Morpheus. The audio dubbing is a split second off, you can hear the crowd start their massive cheering before he even made the introduction.

Timothy Conard

Correction: The crowd is anticipating based on the first syllable the chancellor pronounced - it sounds weird, but it's very common with popular speakers at large events, where the first name is heard and the last is drowned out.

Fight Club (1999)

Corrected entry: After Ed's apartment blows up, he goes to use the pay phone. He inserts money, dials the number, and the phone rings several times before he decides to hang it up. The phone doesn't refund the change like it should.

Timothy Conard

Correction: This isn't a mistake. It's another clue that the conversation with "Tyler" is an imaginary one. The other clue is the fact that there is text on the phone that says it cannot accept incoming calls - yet when Tyler "calls back", the phone rings, and the Narrator picks up.

Fight Club (1999)

Corrected entry: In the scene when Tyler, (Ed Norton), and 2 other guys from the house are speeding down the road in the rain at night, after the car accident, Tyler goes through his window, and over their car that is flipped upside down to check on (Ed Norton). When he is crawling across the car to get to the other side, he places his hands on the exhaust pipes that run from the exhaust manifolds on the motor to the catalytic converter.. I realize the adrenaline is probably pumping, but those are 200+ degrees and he doesn't flinch or show any sign of pain when grabbing them with his hands.

Timothy Conard

Correction: Tyler is a figment of Ed Norton's imagination, so he can do anything Norton wants him to.

Die Another Day (2002)

Corrected entry: In the sexy scene where Jinx exits the water in the bikini, when the wave goes down you can see her bikini bottom and that there is no white belt, then it cuts to Bond briefly, then back to Jinx still walking through the water, and the belt is on her now.

Timothy Conard

Correction: The belt is always visible - you can see it poking just above the surface of the water. In widescreen, anyway.
