Captain Marvel (2019)

Captain Marvel (2019)

New this week Continuity mistake: When Talos appears in Rambeau's house he gets scared after seeing the cat, which then sits down facing Danvers about a foot to the right of Talos' boots. A second later, Danvers reaches down about six feet in front of Talos and picks up the cat which is now facing Talos. There wasn't enough time for the cat to have moved from a sitting position to the new location, let alone turned around. (01:05:00)

Captain Marvel (2019)

New this month Other mistake: When Vers is using the payphone across from Blockbuster, the phone says it costs 25 cents for a call, but down below there is a big notice on the phone saying effective Nov. 1, 1995 the rate is going up to 25 cents. Trouble is it is June 1995, still five months before the rate change. (00:25:40)

Captain Marvel (2019)

New this month Factual error: After taking the motorcycle, Danvers rides to the bar and passes a blue and white open-bed Ford pickup. There are two things wrong with the truck's license plate: it is a non-commercial California plate "1TAH285" (pickups in California back then had to have commercial plates, form 1A23456, unless a special allowance was made if they always have a camper), and the plate is blue on white which was first used with plates starting with "2." A plate of form 1ABC234 starting with "1" are gold on blue. (00:38:00)

The Rookie (2002)

The Rookie mistake picture

New this month Other mistake: When Jimmy is putting the first newspaper article up on the bulletin board, the article is titled "Owls Win Fifth Straight", but the actual article text talks about the Owls having just played and lost the last game of the season that "not only knocked the Owls from post-season action, but ended a 17 game winning streak."

The Rookie (2002)

New this month Trivia: When Jimmy first arrives in Big Lake, the movie theater marquee lists the movie playing as Bang the Drum Slowly, a 1973 movie about a major league pitcher and catcher that form a friendship when traveling on the road, mirroring a lot about the friendship formed by Jimmy and Brooks.

The Sixth Sense (1999)

New this month Continuity mistake: Before Dr. Crowe first speaks with Cole, he is sitting reviewing notes and when Cole comes out of the apartment, Crowe flips to the notes on Cole. The camera is in tight, and moves to close ups of words on the page. Later when translating the Latin Cole was saying, we see a large part of the page, and it is obviously the same page from earlier, including the words that were zoomed in on. Problem is it starts by describing how they first met in a church, which when Crowe was first reviewing the notes had not yet happened. It also describes Cole saying things we don't hear him say in the church. It is obvious from the greeting that the meeting in the church we see is the first time they meet, so how did Crowe have a written description of an event that had not yet happened? There is no indication that ghosts forget events they do after they died, so it wouldn't make sense that this isn't the first meeting, and Crowe just doesn't remember.

Under Siege (1992)

Under Siege mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Before Admiral Bates first speaks to Strannix, there is a dark-haired marine in a green uniform on his left. When Bates raises his hand to signal activating the audio to speak, Captain Garza (black uniform and silver hair) is suddenly on his left. Then it changes to another camera angle and the marine is back next to Bates. (00:36:40)

Under Siege (1992)

Under Siege mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the helicopter lands we see it is sitting over the white circle of the landing zone on the back of the ship. Later, right after the F18 is shot down, we see an aerial view of the ship with a small part of the back cut off, but part of the landing zone circle is visible and there is no helicopter. (00:13:30 - 00:36:00)

Continuity mistake: When Mackensie is having breakfast with Papa, right as he tells Papa she doesn't stop bad things from happening, there is a 2 second cutaway after which there are multiple changes. The geese in the background have disappeared, the shadow on the grass changed, a biscuit on the tray moved, and Papa's red coffee cup moved. (01:04:50)

Thor (2011)

Continuity mistake: When Jane and Thor are driving out to where the hammer is, we see a lot of side shots showing barbed-wire fence posts passing by on both sides of the truck, but when Jane is distracted and goes a little off the road, we are shown a front shot of her bringing the truck back onto the road, except there are no fence posts or fence anywhere to be seen. Immediately afterwards, we again see side shots with fence posts going by. (00:51:00)

Captain Marvel (2019)

Factual error: The movie is set in June 1995, based on the calendar at Rambeau's house, but some of the movies on the shelf at Blockbuster weren't released yet, like First Knight which opened in theaters in July 1995, and was released on VHS in December 1995, or Junior that was released on VHS in January 1996. (00:24:00)

1st May 2019

Captain Marvel (2019)

Factual error: The calendar on the wall behind Fury when they are listening to the audio at Rambeau's house correctly lists the days for June 1995 (1st is a Thursday and 30th is a Friday), but the days for May and July are wrong (it shows May 1st on Sunday and last day as 30th on Tuesday, but 1st was Monday, and May has 31 days, not 30. It shows July 1st as Wednesday when it was actually Saturday, and the month of July only having 28 days). (01:05:00)

Continuity mistake: Near the end after the mob goes over the cliff and Jim is chasing the horses through a snow patch, another rider on a light colored horse can be seen on the right. (01:36:00)

Visible crew/equipment: When the Terminator looks back and fires his shotgun at the truck's tire, on the far right side we can see part of an orange cable or pole with rigging attached to the back of the motorcycle. (00:37:40)

Stargate SG-1 (1997)

Memento Mori - S10-E8

Revealing mistake: As Col. Mitchell is chasing the sedan on the motorcycle, he takes a highway exit marked "Ladner/Surrey" which are suburbs of Vancouver, BC. The show is set in Colorado Springs, and confirmed as the episode's location from the police bulletin. (00:29:10)

Chappaquiddick (2017)

Factual error: The accident takes place the night of July 18, 1969, and they show there being a full moon. That night the moon was actually waxing crescent with only 14% visible, and set at 10:27pm while the accident happened about 12:45am, so there was no moon in the sky anyway.

Continuity mistake: When the SR-71 is taxiing from the hanger its tail number is 17964, but just before the plane explodes the tail number is 17974. (01:25:15 - 01:31:30)
