Saw III (2006)

Corrected entry: During Jigsaw's seizure, Lynn runs over to the shelves that have all the bottles of pills and starts looking for a certain type of pill. The first time you see the shelves all of the bottles are knocked over and strewn around. The shot cuts to Amanda holding Jigsaw down, then back to Lynn looking for pills. For some reason most of the pill bottles have now magically been put upright and look fairly organized. (00:39:25)

Nick Bylsma

Correction: What you see are two different sets of bottles. The one lot is still strewn all over the place and and the others are neat and tidy.

Saw III (2006)

Corrected entry: The first time Kerry's TV shows the view from inside of the closet you can already see one of the bullet holes in the door even though she hasn't even shot yet.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: You can't see the door until she fires at it. And even using slow-mo, you can see there is no bullet holes in the door until Kerry fires the first one.

Saw III (2006)

Corrected entry: When Kerry's watching the jigsaw tape there is a box behind her. In one shot the lid is half on, in the next shot (and all other shots) the lid is nowhere to be seen. (00:12:05)

Nick Bylsma

Correction: The lid always remains on the other side of the bed. Her pillow makes it appear that there is a lid on the box.

Saw III (2006)

Corrected entry: As Kerry walks to check out the pieces of the body you can see the evidence markers 7 and 8 are right next to a piece of arm (or leg), but when they start cutting to different pieces only the 7 is by the leg. (00:06:10)

Nick Bylsma

Correction: That's because the camera angle showing 7 doesn't cover where the other marker was.

Saw III (2006)

Corrected entry: When Kerry is explaining how the Tony case doesn't match up she puts her hands in her pockets and leans up against the wall. The shot cuts to a view of Rigg and the detective and she's still leaning against the wall, the cuts back to her and she's standing up straight again (instant cuts, no time to move). (00:10:55)

Nick Bylsma

Correction: She doesn't lean against the wall. Her stance makes it appear that she is leaning against the wall.

Serenity (2005)

Corrected entry: In the closing scene where the Operative tells the Alliance soldiers to stand down, one of the soldiers (almost out of frame) lowers a set microphone.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: I've watched this scene multiple times and I cannot see a microphone anywhere. Every soldier is holding a gun and nothing else. Where abouts is this microphone? "Almost out of frame" isn't very precise.

Miami Vice (2006)

Corrected entry: Isabella's fingernails change length several times throughout the movie. They go from long to short, then back to long again several times.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: Most fashionable women now (my 25 year old daughter included) use those press-on nails, and from day to day, even from morning to afternoon, they will sport normal short nails or long cultured looking nails, depending on how the mood takes them.

Saw III (2006)

Corrected entry: When Jigsaw first says "I call it The Rack" you see shots of the guy's hand and feet. There is blood coming out of the spots where the bolts are going through, and the blood is dripping down onto the parts of The Rack, but when the machine actually starts to turn his hands (right one) there is no blood to be seen.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: There most certainly is blood. The stream of blood on his hand is just lighter in volume. But you still can see the blood.

Saw III (2006)

Corrected entry: The scene goes back to Lynn preparing for Jigsaw's surgery after Jeff rescues the judge. There is a shot of Jigsaw watching Lynn and you can see the hand rotary saw lying on a tray beside him. There are various shots of Lynn getting the equipment ready, and one of them shows her testing the saw and they laying it down on the table with the other instruments. There is another shot of Jigsaw watching Lynn, and you can see that the rotary saw is still on the tray beside him.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: This whole scene is a montage, and is not in real time, so she may have moved the rotary saw in between shots.

Saw III (2006)

Corrected entry: The boards all break when Jeff falls out of the box and one of them lands between his arm and his side. Jeff passes out and we see his flashback. Jeff comes to, and now the board is lying across his chest.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: He was passed out and having a very distressing dream/flashback about his last moments before being kidnapped. So, it is entirely plausible that he moved in his sleep and ended up throwing the boards around a bit, (I've seen relatives thrash violently in their sleep) and ended up with one on top of him.

Corrected entry: At the end of the movie Beckett is walking down the stairs of the ship while it's being blown to bits by the cannons from the 2 pirate ships. There's a close up slo-mo shot of the railing being destroyed as he walks down. The railing is consistently being blown up RIGHT behind his hands. The shot cuts away to a view from in-front of him and there's a good 3 feet between his hand and where the railing is broken.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: That's right, there is a slow motion SIDE shot of the upper part of the stair railing being blown up *right* behind Beckett's hand, and then it cuts to a slow motion FRONT shot and the upper part of the stair railing is getting blown up once again. ALL of the action is seen from multiple angles and in dramatic slow motion. This is a deliberate and common filmmaking technique to show a single action or sequence repeatedly from several different angles, by 'turning back time' very slightly in some cases, to show the action from a different perspective. The railing being blown up is one of those cases. Another example is in 'LotR: The Two Towers' when Legolas surfs the stairs.

Blind Ambition - S4-E3

Corrected entry: The sheet of toilet paper change numbers when Lois tears them off to put on the seat (right before she sees Quagmire peeping on her). She tears off three sheets, but they change to four when she puts them on the seat. (This happens on both sides of the seat).

Nick Bylsma

Correction: Louis tears off 3 sheets and puts them along the back. All other sheets she tears are of 4.

Saw III (2006)

Correction: This is a flashback montage, so the shots are not necessarilly in real-time.

4th Jul 2007

Saw III (2006)

Corrected entry: Almost all of the women in the hospital scene are wearing earrings or other types of jewelry. My best friend's mother was a doctor for many years and none of the doctors or nurses were allowed to wear any jewelry while they were at work. An earring could fall off into a patient, a ring could get snagged, etc. Too many risks. There shouldn't have been any jewelry being worn in the hospital scene.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: Thats not true in all hospitals. At the hospital in my county all the nurses wear jewelry, so not all hospitals have this rule.

Saw III (2006)

Corrected entry: This goes back to the original Saw, but it's present in the flashback scene in Saw III. When Adam opens up his closet (in the original) he's holding the bat in his right hand and the camera in his left. In the flashback scene you get to see it from Amanda's point of view, and he's holding the bat in his left hand and the camera in his right.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: I just went back and watched this scene both in the first and the third Saw movie, and in both versions, when Adam opens the closet door and pauses in front of it, he has the bat in his left hand and the camera in his right.

11th Jul 2007

Saw III (2006)

Corrected entry: The straw in Jigsaw's drink is on the opposite side of the glass during the flashbacks when he's telling Amanda that it was actually her test. (During the scene at the start of the movie it was at the front of the glass, during the flashback it's at the back of the glass).

Nick Bylsma

Correction: The flashbacks are of events that happened much earlier, and he might have taken a sip from the straw since then, so it makes sense the straw is not in the same place.

11th Jul 2007

Saw III (2006)

Corrected entry: As Jigsaw is dying there is a shot of him slowly closing his eyes and there's no tear or anything. The shot cuts to Jeff for an instant (less than a second), then back to Jigsaw, and there's a tear and a tear run all the way down his cheek. There wasn't enough time for him to cry it out.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: Tears do not always more slowly. They can move quite fast, and move down your face in less than a second, so this is actually possible.

4th Jul 2007

Saw III (2006)

Corrected entry: When Lynn is shaving Jigsaw's head it is extremely obvious that she's not actually cutting his hair. The clippers come nowhere near his scalp. (01:03:40)

Nick Bylsma

Correction: Thats because Jigsaws hair is thick and fluffy. You must thin the hair before cutting at the root or you risk painful catching and jamming of the clippers in the thicker hair, trust me, I shave my own head. It happens a lot in the cheaper models of clippers, and everything Jigsaw uses is cheap, found, self-made and often very old and even sometimes rusty.

20th Jan 2007

Saw III (2006)

Corrected entry: Amanda's flashback scene shows Jigsaw placing her in the chair, then putting the first part of the "Reverse Venus Flytrap" device in her mouth. She has no black lipstick on in those shots, but she was wearing black lipstick during that scene in the original Saw. Later, during the flashback, you see her coming out of the building and she has the black lipstick on.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: I've watched the scene several times and paused on the one specific shot showing Amanda's lips and the black lipstick can be seen as Jigsaw tilts her head back.

300 (2006)

Corrected entry: Leonidas gets a cut that runs from above his left eye, all the way down to past his cheekbone during his battle with the Uber Immortal. During many shots of Leonidas you can see that the cut is on his lower eyelid, yet when they show him at the end of the movie (the shot before he takes his helmet off) he just has the scratch above his eye. You can see at least 1/2 of an inch below his eye, but there's no sign of a scratch. When Leonidas takes his helmet off, the scratch is there beneath his eye and goes all the way up to his eye.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: I've watched the movie several times, and if you watch closely when the ├╝ber Immortal delivers the blow to Leonidus' face, you can see that it starts breaking his helmet first and doesn't actually touch his skin until about 1/2 way down. Thus, creating a physically smaller scar on his face and longer on the helmet itself.
