Corrected entry: In this movie, Professor Flitwick was in human form. However in all the other Harry Potter movies and even in the books, he was a troll-like creature. I know this movie had a different director and they sometimes change things a bit, but at least keep the characters looking the same.

SAZOO1975

Correction: Most things (school robes, Hogwarts geography, ect) are different between each of the films. It's not a continuous series, the way LOTR is.

Mistake is still valid. Clothing and buildings can easily explained when they change. But even in the wizard world, changing from a creature to a human? Come on.

The Karate Kid (1984)

Corrected entry: When Daniel and Mr. Miyagi are on their way to the part of the arena where Daniel will have his 1st match, you see a group of Kobra Kai's, led by Johnny and his boys, running by them and shoving Daniel. However, as soon as Daniel gets to his circle, you can see Johnny and his boys already there and looking on.

SAZOO1975

Correction: All this is done to intimidate Daniel. They jog by and shove him, then jog to his first match. Since he doesn't even know where it is initially they have plenty of time to beat him there.

Incorrect because just a few feet away you can see his opponent kneeling down waiting for him. When Daniel gets there, the bullies who shoved them were already there.

lartaker1975

Corrected entry: When Terri goes outside to go home, as she walks towards her bike, you can see someone upstairs walking by the window. Must be a crew member because Tina and Jimbo are in bed having sex and Ted, Sarah and Doug are watching the film downstairs. Paul and Samantha are dead. There is nobody left in the house. (00:51:15)

SAZOO1975

Correction: It was her twin sister in the window. She even says "You slut!"

Correction: She's looking upstairs because she knows her sister is up there. But the shadow is a different window. Different shape.

lartaker1975

Corrected entry: Roy's motive behind his killing spree is that he's upset his son, Joey, was murdered by Vic. So why kill everyone else, except the person that was solely responsible?

Hurls34

Correction: Roy also loses his mind and snaps. He simply blames everyone for his son's death, not just Victor. He's crazy and goes on a killing spree (just like Pamela Voorhees did). There's no plot hole when a crazy person doesn't act rationally. Plus, Victor was locked up and Roy might not have been able to get to him.

Bishop73

Correction: He could also blame everyone else for not stopping it and letting his son die.

lartaker1975

Plot hole: When the couple go into the woods to have sex, after they finish, the guy goes to a pond to clean up, which is not very far from where he left his girlfriend. A couple minutes later, "Jason" is about to kill her, and she screams very loudly. Despite this he doesn't hear her.

Plot hole: When the cop shows Pam the newspaper clippings they include what look to be fresh photos of the real Jason from the events of Part IV, yet no photographer is ever seen taking pictures of Jason alive in the previous films and most likely wouldn't live long enough to publish the photo.

The Monster Squad (1987)

Plot hole: In order to get rid of the monsters, Phoebe needs to read a text from Van Helsing's diary in order to summon the vortex. As Dracula approaches her, she becomes scared and misses on some words (the Scary German Guy is helping her read since she is 5 years old and she doesn't repeat some of the words he says). However the vortex still shows up to get rid of the monsters.

Suggested correction: It is never specified that the incantation must be read verbatim to work.

BaconIsMyBFF

It also never states that reading only part of the incantation would work either. However, the mistake is still valid because the way to get rid of something evil by reading some "spell" you'd have to read the entire thing. Therefore the "virgin" shouldn't have been able to summon the vortex.

lartaker1975

Since "spells" are entirely made up and magic isn't real, you can't say that in this film every word must be read for it to work when the film itself shows otherwise. Every film gets to make it's own rules with magic, this film establishes that the incantation can be read "in spirit" to work. Other films might have different rules.

BaconIsMyBFF

It's always been implied in movies and books that incantations must be read word for word in order to work. Otherwise, what's the point of having all the words there if you only need to read a word or 2?

lartaker1975

Plot hole: At the end, everyone was returned to their own timeline. Except for Ted's dad. He's shown still playing till the end and not disappearing like the others. However, this version of Ted's dad came from the future when he attempted to arrest his son at David Grohl's house. Therefore, he should have disappeared with the others and returned to his future timeline.

Suggested correction: That's not what happened at the end at all. Only those whose were time-displaced returned to their own timeline. Which is why we see Kid Cudi leave, he was time-displaced and not picked up in the time machine. You can even see Ling Lun is still playing.

Bishop73

Incorrect. Ted's dad was time displaced as well. He never arrived by the time machine, but was sent to hell after being killed by Dennis. Therefore, he should have been sent back to his future timeline.

lartaker1975

Ted's dad was never time-displaced, nor did I say he arrived by time-machine. He was sent to Hell in his own time line and then went with the group to 2020. Unlike Kid Cudi who was time-displaced because he popped out of his own timeline because of time and space collapsing. Just being from a different time isn't what time-displaced meant.

Glory (1989)

Factual error: In some of the scenes in the video during their time at Readville camp, they celebrate Christmas. In actuality, the first volunteers arrived at Readville in February of 1863, and Shaw died in July of 1863, along with most of the regiment, so there is no possibility of having a Christmas during that time.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: This is not a documentary. It's a movie based on actual events. Therefore the filmmakers have a right to change things as they please.

lartaker1975

While filmmakers can make up anything they want, for films considered to be based on historical events, they can only make up things as they could have happened. They can't make up things that couldn't have happened without it being considered a mistake (what one might consider an anachronism). Since no volunteers where with Shaw at the camp in Readville during Christmas time, it's a valid mistake to show them celebrating Christmas.

Bishop73

Suggested correction: The 54th regiment arrived at Readville Camp, Massachusetts on November 27, 1863, not February.

First off, the 54th did begin recruiting and training at Camp Meigs in Feb 1863 and departed March 1863, and Shaw was in charge. The correction make no sense to say they began training under Shaw after Shaw died. And, they still wouldn't have been able to celebrate Christmas based on the correction.

Halloween 4 (1988)

Corrected entry: Dr. Loomis says to Hoffman that Haddonfield is a 4 hour drive, but when he's trying to get a ride there ultimately with the Reverend the sign says Haddonfield is 119 miles, which wouldn't take 4 hours.

Joey221995

Correction: And we don't know how far he's traveled since he gave his estimated time.

Deep Impact (1998)

Corrected entry: The astronauts' communication with their loved ones was without delay, when in fact it should have been a couple of seconds.

Correction: Just like with the entry of the tidal wave taking 45 minutes to reach shore (with the correction being it would be too boring to wait the 45 minutes) it would be boring to have to sit through the seconds of delay as well.

lartaker1975

Corrected entry: When the Fuller family and Gecko brothers are trying to cross the border, we have Jacob talking to the guard to get across the border. While this is happening, we have Seth and Richie having an argument in the bathroom. With the volume of their argument, how can the guard not hear them? (00:38:00)

oobs

Correction: Outside noise. Traffic. Others talking. That can drown out talking inside the camper.

Kingpin (1996)

Corrected entry: In the final scene, Roy's rubber hand is pulled off and thrown into the crowd but immediately after you see Roy sitting down with his hand.

Correction: This is incorrect. If you pay attention, Roy is sitting by himself there is a janitor sweeping behind him. He then bends down, pick up the rubber hand, and hand it to Roy over his shoulder.

lartaker1975

Correction: I know what you are talking about. Woody Harrelson's hook is hidden in the towel he picks up and puts on his lap. The hand you see is actually his real hand as he is putting the hook on.

A Christmas Story (1983)

Corrected entry: In Ralph's daydream, when the bad guys jump the fence, it is obvious they are using trampolines to spring over.

Missy RiRi

Correction: It's a silly kids daydream that is being imagined his own way. Daydreams are like any dreams. Anything can happen, therefore not a mistake.

Knowing (2009)

Corrected entry: Nicolas Cage's wife was killed on a business trip to Phoenix. She died in a hotel fire at 4am while he was busy blowing leaves off the lawn in Massachusetts...at 6am in the dark?

Correction: There is a 3 hour difference between Phoenix and Massachusetts. Therefore he was blowing leaves at 7am. Early enough for people to use a leaf blower.

Dante's Peak (1997)

Corrected entry: After the dead bodies are found in the hot springs, Harry asks Rachel, "Any idea who they were?" Rachel responds, "No. Never seen them before. Backpackers maybe." Rachel would have no idea if she's ever seen them, as the bodies were literally boiled and burned. (00:20:10)

Deliberate mistake: It wasn't Mike Eruzione shouting his own name that finally convinced coach Brooks to stop making the players do sprints. It was Mark Johnson, who smashed his stick against the glass in a fit of rage.

Suggested correction: This is not a documentary. This is a movie based on the events that happened. Therefore since it's not a documentary, they can make any changes to events they want.

I had the chance of skating with Ken Morrow and he confirmed that Johnson was the one who stopped the sprints. Morrow said the Brooks knew if he had gotten to Johnson, he got to all the players.

Tombstone (1993)

Corrected entry: Wyatt did not meet Josephine Marcus after she came to town for a show at the Birdcage Theater. It opened in December 1881, a few months after the gunfight at the OK corral, which occurred in an alley near the corral but not in it.

Correction: This is not a documentary. This is a movie based on the events that happened. Therefore since it's not a documentary, they can make any changes to events they want.

Poltergeist (1982)

Corrected entry: The bedroom door to the kids' room is always locked, but when the mother wants to open the door, she does so without a key. Later when the little ghost-clearance expert lady wants to go in, she finds the door locked and the father has to unlock the door with the key.

kh1616

Correction: They only locked the door after the girl disappeared to keep people out. Not before.

lartaker1975

Correction: The door was unlocked by the one scientist who went upstairs to investigate what was going on and ended up getting bit by something. The door was still unlocked after he left and was probably locked again later before Tangina arrived.
