Corrected entry: When John McClain sends Officer Powell the fax of the fingerprints, notice the direction he feeds the page into the fax. The middle two fingers' prints are the first two prints to go across the scanner, followed by the outer two fingers' prints. With a fax, the first thing scanned is the first thing printed. Therefore, when Powell received the fax, the middle two prints should be at the bottom of the page with the outer two prints higher up on the page. You can see when Powell removes the page out of the machine that this is not the case. (00:24:20)

Corrected entry: While Ellie is traveling through the wormholes, the chair tears away from the ceiling and then gets thrown toward the ceiling as the pod stops, apparently. The pod was made of man-made materials. Assuming she was traveling at about a bazillion miles an hour, the chair would have ripped right through that pod like paper when it stopped.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the chairs are stacked up on the table, while JoBeth Williams ducks under the counter to get something, you can see the reflection in the waffle iron of the crew moving around off-camera to manipulate the chairs. It can't be a reflection of the chairs moving because the chairs are light-colored and the shadows are dark.

Corrected entry: When the female newscaster is dead on the floor she takes a slow, deep breath.

Corrected entry: During the Joker's parade the size of the balloons increases, instead of decreases, as the gas is released. Whether this is from the balloons or the canisters is irrelevant, the ballons still increase in size immediately and continue to do so until Batman captures them. They do not appear to increase in size as Batman takes them into the upper atmosphere so the size change has nothing to do with atmospheric pressure.

Corrected entry: Although the gaffe of the crushed Lincoln Contintental demolishing the suspension of the Ford Falcon Ranchero (5,000 lbs. vs. an 800 lb. capacity cargo bed) seems to be pretty well known, there was another, very similar mistake made in the same film. In 1964, a troy ounce of gold was worth $36. If Mr. Solo got $1 million worth of gold bars in the back of the Lincoln Continental, he's got almost 2,000 lbs. worth in the trunk. The trunk can in reality only hold about 400 lbs.

Corrected entry: When Hermes is talking to Zeus and Hera at the beginning, he talks about Narcissus and Orpheus, who were both mortals and died in Greek mythology. (00:03:35)

Corrected entry: When Bond goes back to the control room to hit the self-destruct button, he goes in completely unarmed. Bond is supposedly the best secret agent in the world, but as he's going up the stairs, with dead bodies and weapons all around him, he doesn't pick up a weapon before going into a room where armed guards are most likely present.

Corrected entry: In both the theatrical and director's cut versions of the movie, right before Murphy gets killed in the vents, he calls out to the dog "Spike". Because in the theatrical version the alien incubated inside the dog, Murphy mistakes the alien for the dog. However, in the director's cut, the alien incubates inside an ox instead of the dog, but Murphy still calls out to Spike even though the dog doesn't even exist in this version of the movie.

Corrected entry: When the toys return to Andy's 'attic' box in the end and he decides to take them to Bonnie, he never questions how his toys have gotten from the garbage bag to the box, despite the fact that the garbage man should have taken the bag away long ago since Andy's mom placed it on the curb.

Corrected entry: In the original Empire Strikes Back Vader quotes "Bring my Shuttle." Which a lot of fans thought was better than "And let my Star Destroyer prepare for my arrival." In SE there is a scene with Vader walking towards his shuttle, which makes more sense. However the original didn't make any sense. The phrase "bring my shuttle" claims the shuttle isn't there at all, it's not waiting it's just not there. Unfortunately Vader beats the Falcon to the Star Destroyer which doesn't make sense. If the shuttle wasn't there already and bring it implies it wasn't waiting then how could Vader get there so fast. Logically if Vader planned to leave the city he wouldn't tell his shuttle to leave well before than, and the Falcon was picking up Luke and about to go outer space. So unless the shuttle was parked right next to the docking platform it doesn't makes sense on how he got to the destroyer first which is why it was changed in SE.

Corrected entry: In the climax, when Wolverine struggles getting towards Jean, some of the flesh on his body is ripped off by Jean's mutant power. The flesh then is quickly back by Logan's rapid healing ability. But the hair on his chest also comes back the same as it was before. This is not supposed to happen. (01:32:35)

Corrected entry: Why would Doc label the toy car "time machine" when they both knew what it was? Having the car marked like that would only make sense for Clara to see it when she arrives at the livery so she would assume that Doc was telling the truth when he told her he was from the future. Since Marty and Doc wanted to minimize their true identities and their association with the future, they should have covered the train set up, just in case they failed in their attempt and/or had to come back.

Corrected entry: Why would the Enterprise need to tow the barge all the way through the asteroid belt? The reason given was they needed the deflector shields to clear a path through the asteroid belt. They could easily tow it enough to build up enough inertial speed, and then calculate the correct trajectory and have the computer tell them when to cut it loose on that trajectory towards the sun. Then increase speed and pull out ahead and clear out a clear path for the barge to pass through at a safe distance. The only reason to do it the way they did was to make it more dramatic.
