Corrected entry: Julia dies in the underwater escape trick tank because the axe couldn't get her out in time. However, if she was able to open the lid from inside the tank, get up, over, and down, then close the lid (all quickly, silently, and without assistance) when the trick goes properly, then there is no reason that the four men standing around could not have simply lifted the lid, either acting a key in the fake padlock to preserve the trick, or using a key if it's real. At this point she could have gotten her head above water and draped her hands over the side of the tank to stay up. That done, the crisis is over, and she must only wait to calm down enough to get herself down, or be assisted. Cutter built the tank, so he knew how strong the glass was. The only explanation for using the axe was to allow Julia's death, thus advancing the plot.

Corrected entry: Even when not referring to his own emotions, The Collector can't say the word "love" when he is trying to seduce Jeryline at the end. He tries very hard to say it, but is simply incapable of using the word. Earlier, when The Collector was tempting Cordelia, he used the word several times without issue.

Corrected entry: Izzie tells the patient's mother if she doesn't want to be late for her 6:00pm job she needed to leave immediately as it is a 3 hour drive, when it is actually less than half that: 88 miles - 1 hour 20 minutes. There is only one route from Seattle to Chehalis, Interstate 5. The vast majority of the drive has speed limit of 65-70 MPH and at 3:00pm (or earlier) traffic will not be an issue.

Corrected entry: On a certain date in 2016, Jake enters Peregrine's Loop on September 3rd, 1943 where her children relive the same day over and over and all non-peculiars are completely unaware of the Loop. When the Loop closes and it becomes September 4th, 1943, the children, without re-entering 2016, travel by steamliner to London and enter a Loop set in a date six months prior to the date from which Jake entered Peregrine's 1943 Loop. The trouble is, this Loop did not exist in 1943, so it should have been inaccessible to the children.

Corrected entry: The machines which allow individuals to dream the same lucid dream are equipped with timers which wake the dreamers after a predetermined amount time without them having to receive a physical kick. So all the drama in the hotel and in the van about how to make the kicks happen was entirely superfluous since the dream machines they were hooked up to could have simply woken them at a predetermined time without needing to blow anything up, or crash any vehicles into any rivers.

Corrected entry: Spock announces that the Enterprise's gravity systems are failing and, from that point on,"down" is no longer towards the bottom of the ship, but is instead towards whichever side of the Enterprise happens to be nearest to Earth as the ship spins out of control. This would make sense except that the ship is in freefall and therefore everything on it should not be experiencing any gravity at all. A correction for a similar mistake supposes that the shifts in gravity are due to fluctuations caused by the malfunctioning gravity systems as they attempt to come back online. The main problem with this excuse is that, if the gravity systems are attempting to restart, then there must be intervals between each attempt wherein they are NOT started - moments where they are offline during which there should be no gravity aboard the Enterprise. These moments never occur, and so the gravity systems cannot be attempting to restart. They are simply down, and the inevitable result of such a situation was misrepresented in the film to increase the tension for the audience. (01:41:15)

Corrected entry: When Kevin Bacon is buying the guns from John Goodman, he lays his red backpack containing his money on the counter. Bacon throws some money on the counter and, after receiving the weapons, walks away. When Goodman scoops up the money we can see Bacon's backpack still on the counter, but in the very next shot Bacon is several yards away with the backpack in his hands.

Corrected entry: When Vesper lowers herself into the water while inside the elevator, the elevator car's "roof" is shown. As the car falls, the roof lifts completely away from the rest of the car, which would allow Bond quick and easy access. There are also many gaps in the bars and wire mesh that make up the elevator shaft that are large enough to easily allow both Bond and Vesper to pass through simultaneously. There's no reason Bond should have followed Vesper down from outside the shaft and attempted to break the elevator door open - he could have got to her from above, quickly and easily, whether she wanted him to or not.
