Corrected entry: Picard decided to beam the leader of the village to the Enterprise. While on the bridge, he orders Data to beam her directly to transporter room one as soon as she is alone. Picard goes to the transporter room, tells the crewman he will handle this himself, and then proceeds to beam her up without notifying Data not to do so.

Corrected entry: Some of the computers shown in the scenes at the newspaper, set in the 1970's, are a newer style than what was available at the time. They look like they are from the 1980's.

Corrected entry: When Indy meets the government agents who are trying to get him to assist their quest to find Ravenwood, one of the agents is dressed appropriately for the time period; the other one (I think the actor is Bill Hootkins) is dressed in what appears to be a late 1970's style polyester light blue leisure suit. The style of the suit just doesn't fit the 1930's period. (00:16:05)

Corrected entry: The story takes place in late 1957, as is evidenced by the appearance of Sputnik. Near the very end the U.S. military launches a nuclear weapon on a missile from a submarine. Problem: the U.S. had no such nuke launching subs at that time. (01:13:10)

Corrected entry: In the scene where Eddie Valiant follows Jessica into Toontown, he crashes the 1939 Plymouth Coupe he is driving into the back of her parked Packard at 1:10:40. The hood (including the top of the grill shell and hood ornament) on the Plymouth is forced opened from the front by the crash (like the hood opens on a modern car). A 1939 Plymouth has a butterfly style hood that opens from the sides and the grill shell and ornament do not raise with the hood. Example: http://willoughbycoach.com/1939%20Plymouth%20Coupe.jpg Later, there is also no damage to the grill shell and ornament when Roger is leaving Toontown 1:17:42. For the hood to open like it did in the crash, those pieces would have to have been torn from the grill. (01:10:40 - 01:17:40)

Corrected entry: The fairies lock the door to the woodcutter's cottage while they're using their magic, but Aurora is able to enter without having the door unlocked by magic or physical contact with the door on the fairies' part. She also does not pause to unlock the door herself when she enters in a flurry.
Corrected entry: Throughout the movie Indy keeps referring to Orellana's quest for the City of Gold taking place in the 15th Century, which can't be, the Spanish didn't venture into the southern continent of America until the 1500's which would make it the 16th Century. An archaeologist would know that.

Corrected entry: Geordi, Troi, data and Picard learn that they are able to interact with "objects" within the bubble of extremely slow moving time. This is to allow them to open doors and move throughout the ships. Problem is it would be impossible. By Newtonian physics, to move an object you must overcome the force holding it in place. To lift an object, you must overcome its weight: its mass times the acceleration due to gravity (roughly 9.8 meters per second per second) The problem is that with time moving extremely slow, any object would be extremely heavy because the acceleration due to gravity just increased ( a second in the bubble would seem to equal an hour, maybe even more, outside the bubble).

Corrected entry: After Troi sees the effects of the first time bubble, Data comments that his internal chronometer is in synch with the runabout's computer. That would mean the first bubble also enveloped the computer, but nothing it controls was affected: gravity, navigation, attitude control, inertial dampers, life support, etc. These systems are normally controlled by the computer, only when something significant changes do they require crew input.
Corrected entry: In the scene when the skull gets returned to the alien body, you can see an obvious editing pause and film misalignment when the skull flies from her hand to the alien body.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Hammond is sitting at the long table and eating ice cream, Ellie comes in and sits at the opposite end. All of the ice cream barrels are near him. When a scene cuts to Ellie, there is an ice cream container near her and towards the end of the scene she gets some ice cream. At the end of the scene, the shot shows both of them and the table and there is no ice cream within Ellie's reach. (01:21:50 - 01:24:55)

Corrected entry: When the tour trucks enter the T-Rex paddock, the electrified fence is missing an entire section, from the tunnel they exit to the first section of fence.
Corrected entry: After the Joker tells the citizens of Gotham that he wants Mr. Reese dead in an hour or he will blow up a hospital, Bruce leaves to go to his Lamborghini. When Alfred says, "The Lamborghini then, sir?" the news is still on the TV in the background. The scene later cuts back to Alfred when he says, "Much more subtle." The TV is now off, but you never saw anyone shut it off in the one second between Alfred's lines, nor is Alfred holding a remote control.
Corrected entry: In the first scene when the thieves are sliding on a wire between buildings(a shot from above), a black spherical camera is seen sliding before them on the same wire.
