Corrected entry: During the scene where Pepper is replacing Stark's heart device, his breathing in the computer-generated chest area is different from the rest of his (real) chest area. The computer-generated chest area looks rather fake, especially when his real chest is shown a few minutes later.

Corrected entry: This film had been in the works for a long time, mostly because of problems with the script and inability to settle on a McGuffin, or plot device. Several screenwriters had been commissioned to write scripts, but none were satisfactory, and in one case, the screenwriter couldn't get Lucas and Spielberg to concentrate. Writers also didn't want to approach the task, because they felt the shoes Lucas and Spielberg wanted them to fill were too big. Eventually, however, Lucas and Spielberg settled on the crystal skull as the McGuffin and also upon a screenplay which they thought was what they wanted.

Corrected entry: The two theories of time travel displayed in the Back to the Future series seem to conflict with each other. In the first movie, Marty changes history to create a future where he was never born, and as a result he begins to fade out of existence. In the second movie, Biff changes history to create a future where Marty is away at boarding school, but rather than fading into his new timeline, Marty stays exactly the same. There are now two Martys, one from 1985 (Marty 1) and one from 1985A (Marty 2). If that's the case, then Marty should have stayed exactly the same in the first movie (Marty 1) and returned to an alternate universe where his other self (Marty 2) was never born.

Corrected entry: In addition to the creature's head changing shape, it changes size as well. When we see it from the roof of the Time Warner Center, it is half the size of the skyscrapers surrounding it. But when Rob, Beth, and Hud are running away from it, it is just barely taller than the house next to them. When it attacks the helicopter, it is huge again, but when it (SPOILER) kills Hud, it is much smaller.

Corrected entry: When Dawson and Joey run into Jen in the hall at school, Jen mentions that 'she was going to see the day out' but decided to go home early instead. This was obviously early in the day, morning or lunch perhaps. But later when Jen arrives home from school and talks to Grams on the porch; Grams asks Jen 'how was her day' in a very matter-of-fact manner, and doesn't seem at all surprised that Jen has come home much earlier than usual. She acts as if Jen is Coming Home at her usual time, but this doesn't make sense as Jen is Coming Home much earlier and Grams should have noticed the difference.

Corrected entry: At the end, when Ripley has her arm slung through that rung in the airlock and the queen alien is hanging from her foot AND the decompression that has everything in the cargo hold whipping by her head...she only loses a shoe as the queen is swept into space? By all rights, shouldn't only her arm be left dangling there? (02:11:25)

Corrected entry: When Marty is talking to the Doc when he is in the back of Biff's car, it shows the present Doc with the past Doc's hair (i.e. the actor has the wrong wig on). It cuts back to Marty, then back to the Doc, where he still has the past Doc's hair. When it cuts back to the Doc a third time, he has the present Doc's hairstyle. (01:09:30)

Corrected entry: How did "Slugworth" get to Verucca so fast? He was already in Mr.Salt's factory at the time, but he would have had to be an employee to be there.

Corrected entry: Bruce The Shark could not possibly have known that sea mines explode. To him, they'd be globes of metal bobbing about. If one of the mines in that minefield had gone off - allowing Bruce to see what a mine does - they would all have exploded. The shock wave underwater would have detonated all the mines - it's called a sympathetic or adiabatic explosion. Even if Bruce survived the experience, the minefield and wrecked submarine wouldn't have.
Corrected entry: Miranda Frost confiscates Bond's watch and other gadgets when it is revealed that she is actually working for Gustav Graves. Correctly, he does not have a watch on in the following scenes. However, after the rescue of Jinx from the destroyed ice palace, Bond is shown making his first 'update' briefing with Charles (M's assistant) as the story continues. He is now wearing an Omega Seamaster again. He could not have retrieved his original watch from Miranda, and he has not yet at this point in the story had any opportunity before this point to have any contact with Q or any other MI6 operative, so where did he get his replacement watch? It doesn't make sense that Bond would go to the trouble of going out and finding a retail dealer to buy a new production-model $4,000 Omega Seamaster in the midst of this world emergency just because he wants to wear a watch for the short time until he gets issued his new Q-approved replacement.
Corrected entry: Bond pushes a dashboard button to open the roof of his car when it is upside down sliding on the ice. Notice that the button is labled "ROOF", not "ROOF OPEN", indicating that it is not intended soley to open the roof, but to open and close the roof. After he flips it back on the wheels, he pushes a button down on the floor console somewhere to close the roof. It is not likely that there would be two seperate controls to operate the roof.
Corrected entry: In Q's projects lab, he introduces to Bond his newest gadgets. When he wants to demonstrate the sonic ring, he asks for a weapon from Bond, who picks up a Walther P99 pistol from the table and hands it to Q. After Q fires the weapon at the bullet-proof glass, he hands the gun back to Bond, who then puts the weapon into his empty shoulder holster. Why is Bond taking this gun with him? Where is his own gun? It can't be this one, for Bond has never been in this lab, nor even this entire complex yet. There was no opportunity for him to have relinquished his gun to Q or any other MI6 operative before this point in the story.

Corrected entry: In the flashback episode, Chandler and Monica are in the bar (which is soon to become Central Perk) and Rachel is in the same bar with her friends before she is due to marry Barry. When Chandler overhears Rachel - a complete stranger - say she wants one last fling, he tries to flirt with her, but she dismisses him. Monica then says "I know her" and talks to Rachel briefly with Chandler present. In fact, as revealed in later episodes, Chandler and Rachel knew each other when he was in college with Ross and Rachel was in high school with Monica - in fact they even made out at a college party.

Corrected entry: When Richard is at the hotel looking for Stan Grossman, Richard calls Stan's cell and proceeds to locate him in the entrance hall. Stan picks up his cell, looks at it, and then hangs up (as demonstrated by the beep his cell makes before he puts it back in his pocket). However, Richard's phone keeps ringing, which should not happen if Stan has already hung up.
