Corrected entry: Josh Brolin hides the bag of cash in the air vent in one hotel room, then later retrieves it from the air vent in the room next door. This was impossible. The air vents were in the center of each room. That would mean they were approximately 10 to 15 feet apart. Josh Brolin slides the money bag to the back of the air vent in the first room and then nudges it to the left down the perpendicular connecting air vent. Then when he returns he gets the room next door, takes down the grate of this air vent and looks in and sees the money bag at the back of the air shaft. If it is visible at the back of the first air shaft it could not be seen at the back of the air vent in the room next door.

Corrected entry: It is known that Peter Pan's shadow is just him; it acts on his own. When grown up Peter is reminiscing about first meeting Wendy, he pulls his shadow's feet on the wall in the nursery (trying to get it back). But when you look to the bottom right of the screen, you can see young Peter's real shadow.

Corrected entry: When the alien is killed in the end, we see his point-of-view as the glass of water tips and spills on his face, and you can blatantly tell that is a prop. Firstly, it doesn't spill as it tips, it only starts to spill after it has completly fallen over, which doesn't happen when a glass tips (try it yourself). And secondly, you can see it continue to pour out water for at least five or six seconds, meaning that more water has spilled than the glass could even carry.

Corrected entry: When Marty goes back to Nov. 5, 1955, the time is set for 8:30 AM. When he arrives he walks around a bit in amazement and then heads towards Hill Valley. The sign he passes says "Hill Valley 2 miles." When he gets there, look at the clock tower, the time is about 8:30 (give or take). He couldn't have run the two miles in under a minute even without hiding the DeLorean.

Corrected entry: In the scene at the badlands, when Hammond's chopper has landed and Grant goes to the trailer and opens the door, the trailer looks to be around 8 feet (three meters) wide. But switch to an interior shot and it is suddenly more like 30 feet (ten meters) wide.

Corrected entry: During the 'little power demonstration' a repulser beam hits the Enterprise and throw it three days away from the planet. But no-one on the bridge shows any signs of movement - even the standing one. Remember every space battle when after each hit you see people flying through the air . (00:25:20)

Corrected entry: If you listen carefully, you can hear some common Costa Rican birds, including a keel-billed toucan and a three-wattled bellbird. Since it was filmed in Hawaii, they must have taken the time to add a soundtrack of Costa Rican birds. Unfortunately, these birds would not likely be found on an island that far off the coast. The bellbird in particular occurs only at mid-elevations in the Costa Rican mountains. These birds are not on Cocos Island, 340 miles off the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Cocos is considered the inspiration for the fictitious island in the movie. Since Cocos is uninhabited, and visits are strictly restricted, a soundtrack from there would have been extremely difficult to get. The fact that they went so far as to add a Costa Rican soundtrack is pretty impressive.

Corrected entry: Singapore was not formed until the mid-20th century. And that area was not crawling with Chinese people yet.

Corrected entry: After the mine cart chase, the three heroes see the water quickly approaching. They run further down the tunnel and make a right. The next shot, they come out of a passageway and look right, only to see the water coming from their left. Now, since two rights is essentially a U-turn, the three are looking back in the direction they came from; the water should be coming from the right as opposed to their respective left. (01:40:45)

Corrected entry: Notice the eyes on Darth Vader's helmet throughout most of the movie. Then notice the eyes on his helmet in the scene were Luke is getting crispy-fried by the Emperor. When Darth Vader is looking from his son to the Emperor and back, the eyes are much wider and less menacing looking. That is to give the audience the image of concern and goodness.

Corrected entry: The ship is shown one time accelerating from warp 1 to warp 7. The event of reaching warp 7 is accompanied by a spectral-colored tube. After reaching warp 1 no maneuver (as long as the speed stays above warp 1) changes the visual appearence of the flight (i.e. the white streaks passing the star ship).

Corrected entry: In the Ink and Paint club, you can tell the hand Jessica uses to grab Eddie's tie is a real one, since it's lighting is so much different to the cartoon body beside it.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Roy joins the rest of the potential travelers, they all wear jumpsuit uniforms. Each suit has an American flag displayed on the right shoulder sleeve with the stars on the left upper quadrant of the flag. By tradition, this is the way the flag is displayed on the left shoulder sleeve; on the right sleeve the stars should be in the right upper quadrant to represent the way the flag would appear if the wearer was moving forward, not retreating.
