Current cinema and home releases

Plot hole: Even if boys of that age had the technical know-how to quickly repair Jeeps over 20 years old (seriously?), any gasoline in the tank would have long become unusable, the tires and lines would have rotted away, and the electrics would all be dead. Now if it was in the desert or a dry garage, it may have survived, but it's on a tropical island, in a shed that has all sorts of holes in the roof, leaving it exposed to every kind of weather the island could throw at it. In addition, the kids start the jeep with the small battery of an ATV, which cannot produce enough power to crank a Jeep engine.

New this month Plot hole: There's no good reason for Hinx to attack Bond on the train. Blofield was expecting him to turn up at the crater, that's why he sent the car to pick them up.

Other mistake: When devising the plan to retrieve Watney, it is mentioned that the Hermes crew have had to lash together all the webbing on board to make the longest possible tether. When this tether is used, there is no evidence of any lashing together or other extensions or modifications to lengthen it. The tether is one continuous length and is stored on a reel that was designed for the length of tether gathered on it.


Continuity mistake: When Honey meets Hiro, she has earbuds in her ears playing music. She starts talking to Hiro, pulls them out of her ears, and they dangle out of her shirt. The dangling earbuds disappear in the close up shot of her and Hiro.

Factual error: The main character from the video game "Paperboy" is among the alien invaders in the final battle; since that game was first released in 1984, he shouldn't be there, because the probe the aliens received featuring video game footage was launched into space in 1982.


New this month Factual error: When the exchange is made in Berlin it is bitter winter with snow on the ground. But Donovan returns to New York (the TV newsmen is reporting that Powers has been returned "earlier this morning") so it is within hours, and yet the leaves on the trees in NY are green, the grass is green, people are in shirtsleeves. Berlin and NY share the same seasons.

Continuity mistake: While Susan is on the moped chasing after the car, some moments we can see that her stilettos become flats, particularly when she rides over the ramp and shouts, "I am so bad-ass," and also after she shoots the gun out of the car passenger's hand.

Super Grover

Revealing mistake: When the family and Paddington are approaching the fictional "Westbourne oak" tube station the real original sign for "Maida Vale" is in shot.

Revealing mistake: In the first scene where Natalie is checking her phone whilst driving, you can see the shift selector is in the park position, suggesting the car is on a trailer for this driving scene.

Continuity mistake: When Gordo leaves Simon and Robyn for a few minutes to handle a work thing, Simon starts mocking Gordo in his absence. Simon tells Robyn that Gordo wants to nail her and Robyn says "Stop it," but Simon continues his mocking of Gordo. At the end when Simon is listening to the recording that Gordo made of that conversation, Robyn's "Stop it" is absent.


New this month Continuity mistake: In the bus scene on the Golden Gate bridge, right after the bus flips end-over-end, we see it sliding broadside from Pops' point of view through the hole in the police car windshield, at most a few hundred feet ahead. At this point, the bus falls over the side of the bridge, breaks apart, then catches and hangs there. In the ensuing wide angle shot, even though Pops was a mere block away and racing at top speed, his car is nowhere in sight. What's taking him so long? Did he take the scenic route? Perhaps stop for beverages? Meanwhile, as Kyle and Sara snap out of it, exchange some dialogue, and begin scrambling upward to safety with John Connor again in hot pursuit, a full minute passes before Pops finally rolls in to save the day.

Continuity mistake: When the Bellas just got told that they are not allowed to compete any more they walk outside and Beca gets a call. When the camera is zoomed in on her you see her calling and moving a lot. When the camera is focusing on the other Bellas she is standing completely still in the background. When the camera is back on Beca she is moving again.


New this week Continuity mistake: When first arriving at her new house, Riley looks around in the living room. At the end of the room, there is a spray bottle. Riley then goes upstairs. When she returns, the spray bottle is missing and no one has moved it.


New this month Continuity mistake: Charlie Brown is using a pen to write a book report. The black ink leaks and gets all over his hands. When he walks to his dresser to get a pencil, all the ink stains are gone.

New this month Plot hole: When the car blows up, Drac and the gang must use Blobby as a way of transportation. Since Drac is a bat, why didn't he just fly the gang back?

New this month Factual error: The year is 1952. In an exterior scene, Saoirse Ronan is seen on a street in Brooklyn. In the far background, a red "WALK/DON'T WALK" sign is flashing. This type of sign was only introduced in the late 50s.

Brian Brennan

Factual error: During the trial the judge uses a gavel. English judges have never used gavels.
