Best movie mistakes of 2017

Continuity mistake: When Ana is getting dressed for the masked ball she wears a black corset, later in the night, when Christian takes her dress off, she is wearing nothing under it.

Factual error: In the scenes where Gardner is messaging his Earth based female friend Tulsa from his Mars home, their communication is shown as being in real time. In truth, there would be minimum of a 4 min lag between messages due to the distance.

Jizzmopper

Factual error: The Akula class submarine is an attack class submarine, not an SSBN (Missile Carrier).

Continuity mistake: When Gaston and Le Fou approach the village on horseback, they watch Belle through a telescope. In the shot from behind, Le Fou has to stretch out to reach the telescope when Gaston passes it across and his fingers barely touch the end of it, but when the view changes to the front the horses are closer together and he is holding the telescope firmly in the middle.

CHIPS

Other mistake: Near the start of the movie Jon indicates that he has titanium in his right arm, but towards the end of the movie the bullet ricochets off his left arm.

Logan

Continuity mistake: When Logan shoots Dr Rice at the start of the final fight, the shot changes to Logan and shows him firing a gun using his right hand. The shot changes to Pierce being shot, then to a wide shot showing all three men. The gun is now suddenly in Logan's left hand.

Continuity mistake: Daniels' face gets splattered with blood but when she uses the radio to call back the others, her face on the screen shows no blood. In the other shots after it's there again.

Factual error: When Steve gets dressed after bathing in the pool he zips up his fly. The film is set during the First World War. The zip was not used on clothing until 1925 and did not become common on flies until long after that.

Necrothesp

Rings

Factual error: The interior of the 747 is too narrow.

AAL117

Continuity mistake: When Bailey, or "buddy" first finds Hannah at his last life, Hannah says that he is not a stray because he has a collar. In the initial shot of the dog it does not have a collar on, but when she reaches to see the tag it appears.

jaydowg23

Continuity mistake: Zac Efron has no shirt on while lifting and competing against Dwayne Johnson, then the people fall and jump off the pier - he hops on the motorcycle and in the next shot he has a green shirt on.

Revealing mistake: During the underwater scenes the light appears from below and above but it's underground and should be pitch black, suggesting studio lighting being used.

New this week Factual error: During the practice rounds, the question was asked about what was the densest element. The answer given was "Uranium" (19.1 g/cubic cm). The correct answer is Osmium with a density of 22.59 g/cubic cm).

Blathrop

Factual error: When Packard and his men arrive on the island, they are seen wearing ALICE gear (All-purpose Lightweight Individual Carrying Equipment). The film takes place in 1973, that type of gear would've just finished testing phases in 1973. The soldiers would be more accurately equipped with M-1956 Load-Carrying Equipment (LCE) or M-1967 Modernized Load-Carrying Equipment (MCLE).

Matdan97

Plot hole: During the execution scene when Carina is on the gallows with a noose around her neck, the plot depends on Henry being able to get to her before she is dropped through the trap door. However, there is so much slack in the hanging rope that during the chaotic fighting, when Carina is left unattended, she could easily have stepped off the small trap door and onto the solid flooring that is inches away. Instead, she continues standing there, waiting to be rescued.

The Circle mistake picture

New this month Continuity mistake: When Mae first meets Ty, as Ty says she is new here, he is holding a bottle of wine in his arms. The bottle goes from being held on his right side to his left.

Underworld: Blood Wars mistake picture

New this month Continuity mistake: Selene normally wears high heel boots. They briefly turn into flats during her caged fight with Varga, right before he betrays her.

ployp

New this week Plot hole: After the car is destroyed, Gru is knocked unconscious and Dru enters Balthazar Bratt's robot to destroy the robot's core from the inside. Once Gru wakes up, Balthazar attempts to kill him with the robot's laser and Dru destroys the core causing the robot to collapse. Gru then yells out "Dru!" and runs over to the wreckage of the robot to try and find him. The problem with this is that since Gru was knocked unconscious before Dru entered the robot, and Gru knew nothing of Dru's plan to disable the robot's core, there is no way for him to know that Dru was inside the robot.

Other mistake: In the opening minutes Antonio Banderas hops in an open air Jeep and heads to town, driving along, scenery going by, but with no key in the ignition.

Dallen55

New this month Factual error: When Xander Cage is chasing Xiang on the dirt bikes, he lets his bike get entirely submerged, which would flood the engine.

Factual error: Before and during the Marines' arrival in Marjah, some of them are wearing Dust Goggles. These would've been first issued in World War II and continued into the early 2000s. The Battle for Marjah took place in 2010, by which point these goggles had been replaced by superior models such as ESS for some time.

Matdan97

Continuity mistake: Alison is saying goodbye to her parents and she is wearing a long kimono. As she walks into her bedroom she is no longer wearing it, and then picks it up off her bed and puts it on.

Emilyt2001

New this week Continuity mistake: Late in the film, Clare becomes unpopular again and a girl throws a drink at her shirt. The stain the drink makes changes considerably when she is cleaning it in the bathroom mirror (it is darker and more messy). The stain then is back to what it was earlier after that (before we see her wish for her mother to be alive).

T2 Trainspotting mistake picture

New this week Visible crew/equipment: When Renton is singing at the pub, he approaches Simon playing the piano to let him sing a line. In the shot before he places the microphone under Simon's mouth, Renton is shown moving the microphone away from his mouth, and a camera can be seen attached to the microphone, to film the shots from the perspective of the microphone.

Get Out

Other mistake: When they hit the deer, the passenger side mirror and lower quarter panel was damaged, when the deer not only came from the other direction, but also seemed to be in the air when it got hit.

Factual error: When Sgt. Harper and his men are prepping their gear for the water mission, he gives Pvt. Ocre one of his rifle plates. But the plate he gives him looks like a steel plate that been wrapped in plastic. In reality, the plates issued to Marines and Soldiers were and still are ceramic Small Arms Protective Inserts (SAPI for short). The plate seen in the film looks nothing like the actual ones.

Matdan97

Factual error: After John Wick's house blows up, he takes his dog for a long walk into the Continental in Manhattan. He lives in New Jersey and walks into Manhattan over the Brooklyn Bridge which is on the complete other side of Manhattan, crossing over into Brooklyn and not New Jersey.

Continuity mistake: When Mack and Jesus are running on the river, they switch sides between shots.

Dunkirk

New this week Factual error: When the returned soldiers are on the train at the end of the film, they are on what appears to be a modern open-plan train carriage. In the 1940s it would have been a compartment carriage.
