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.

The Shack (2017)

The Shack mistake picture

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.

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)

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

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)

Merlin (2008)

Show generally

Factual error: In the show Gaius wears glasses, except eyeglasses first came into use in the late 13th century while the legend of King Arthur is around the 5th or 6th century.

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.

D.A.R.Y.L. (1985)

D.A.R.Y.L. mistake picture

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)

Singularity - S1-E15

Revealing mistake: At the end of the opening credits, they approach a group of three dead bodies to tag them. The second body we see, wearing a light grey shirt, moves its head a little as they are passing the first body. (00:06:00)

Taken (2008)

Taken mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Bryan goes into the store to buy the karaoke machine, there is a clock visible on the wall behind the merchant. During this scene, the minute hand jumps ahead by 5 minutes between the first shot of the merchant and the second shot 6 seconds later. (00:01:55)

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Martha approaches the men at the transportation shed, the stereo is visible on the bench on the right and its front is parallel to the side of the bench, but when it switches on for the dance fight, it is now at about a 30 degree angle, touching both sides of the bench. (01:10:30 - 01:12:00)

The Final Countdown mistake picture

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, Cmdr Owens lands an F-14, number 200. Immediately after landing while the plane is raising its tail hook, we see the number 203 on the right wing flap, then after a short cutaway, we see the plane again taxi to the right but now the right wing flap's number is back to 200. (00:08:35)

Groundhog Day (1993)

Deliberate mistake: The sun is up when the alarm clock goes off at 6AM. On that latitude, in early February, there would be just a hint of slight brightening in the sky, and no usable light hitting the ground. Nothing like what Phil sees outside his window. That said, the amount of light shown is a necessary artistic change for the plot of the movie.

Factual error: When the Indians are running from the cavalry they cross over a set of tire tracks. They are too far from where Marty started so cannot be his, and the lines can't be wagon tracks because the lines are too wide and the width is uniform. (00:19:30)

Factual error: When Bill and Ted grab Beethoven, we are shown the piano he was playing which is a Steinweg (Steinweg later changed his name to Steinway when he immigrated to the United States). Steinweg made their first piano in 1835, and the model shown was built in Braunschweig so must have been made after 1858, but Beethoven died in 1827, years before a Steinweg piano existed.

K-Pax (2001)

Factual error: The lab technician tells Dr. Powell that Prot is sensitive to ultraviolet light, and says "he can detect light up to 300 to 400 angstroms." Normal human vision is considered to be about 390 to 700 nanometers, which is 3900 to 7000 angstroms. The highest light frequency that an animal is known to be able to see is about 280 nanometers, or 2800 angstroms, so he is saying Prot can see a frequency about 10 times higher than any known animal. 300 angstroms isn't just ultraviolet, it is bordering on X-ray. Prot wouldn't just be unusual, he would be a medical marvel demanding worldwide research for his visual range alone. (00:23:00)

Suggested correction: There no actual mistake here. Just some additional information surrounding the statement made in the film.

1) While Prot is painted as having many abilities so unusual as begging people to accept him as not human, the ability to see that light frequency would cause the medical professional to jump out of their skin and start calling everyone else in the medical field, not just go "wow, that's weird." 2) Seeing those frequencies is essentially impossible to occur for a couple reasons, mainly that it would take multiple simultaneous genetic mutations (the lens would have to mutate to pass and focus that frequency where currently it completely blocks it, the fluid inside the eye [aqueous humor] would also have to mutate since it is also opaque to those frequencies, and the retinal receptors would have to mutate to be sensitive to those frequencies) and no such mutations are known to have ever occurred in any animal, plus the ability for a mutation to be sensitive to extreme ultraviolet (again, those frequencies are almost X-ray) is probably not possible due to the physics involved in how receptors work, meaning for it to happen multiple mutations in the receptors alone would be needed. 3) This isn't a superhero movie where a person seeing X-ray is just accepted; it is a movie attempting to portray a person as bizarre but within the realm of possible, which this isn't. Personally, I think the writers meant to say he was sensitive to 300-400 nanometers and goofed and said angstroms (some people with artificial lens replacements have been know to see up to about 380 nanometers). The lab tech on the other hand would know better and wouldn't make such a mistake, so this is a movie mistake, not a character mistake.
