New this month Continuity mistake: At the end, as the crew are talking about being arrested for feelings, the time on the bridge clock is 17:56:19 as Chekov sits down. We hear the viewscreen activate, cut to see Sulu talking, and the time above the screen is suddenly 17:56:28.

Continuity mistake: When time freezes, we see the Hatter's family freeze in the ant farm. When time is mended, he holds the farm close, and his family should have unfrozen at the top of the sand, but they aren't there.

Tango & Cash (1989)

Question: At the start, why does Tango empty his gun (of unused cartridges) and reload with different bullets before shooting the tanker? Unless I missed something, it's never explained.

Food Fight - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: At the start after Teddy steals Oscar's fries, he eats them, leaving his fork empty. The angle changes and suddenly there are plenty of fries on his fork.

Happy Endings (2011)

Dave of the Dead - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When Dave enters the room with champagne glasses to celebrate his terrible idea, in a brief shot as he enters he's holding the glasses upside down. We cut to the other angle when he asks Alex to help him, and they're now held the right way up. As she takes them off him the angle switches again, and they're back to being upside down.

Fast Five (2011)

Plot hole: The Rock and his team set up the satellite to keep an eye out for Dom's car. That night he goes out to race and wins the Porsche without ever being spotted. The next night they deliberately set out to lure the Rock to them, and the satellite picks them up immediately.

Jason Bourne (2016)

Factual error: Virtually every time anyone is seen hacking with an IP address on screen, the address includes the number 256. IP addresses only go up to 255.

The Possibilities - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Tulip hands over her driving licence after she's been pulled over, she puts a ring on her left hand and hands the licence over with that hand, then the angle changes and she's using her right.

Continuity mistake: When Zac Efron is first in the sorority house, the sweat stains on his shirt keep coming and going.

The Flash (2014)

Back to Normal - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: The sequence at the start showing a "normal" day shows a coffee shop with the Flash supposedly running out with two coffee cups.When we see his day now without super speed, the shot of the coffee shop is just a continuation of the previous one, with the same guy walking through the door. In fact if you go back and look closely at the first shot, you can just see the edge of Barry, hidden behind another customer.

Trivia: The directors have previously worked on both Community and Arrested Development - both shows get nods in this movie. Jim Rash, the Dean from Community, plays an MIT faculty member at the start. More subtle is the Bluth family's stair-car from Arrested Development, seen briefly as Captain America walks onto the airport runway before the big battle with the other Avengers.

Deadpool (2016)

Deadpool mistake picture

Trivia: Wade Wilson is on the "Dead Pool", seen briefly at the back of the bar, but so are various celebrities, such as Bill Cosby, Kanye West, and Charlie Sheen. Perhaps most notable are Ryan Reynolds and TJ Miller, stars of the movie.

Question: Who is it that Bruce sees in his dream/vision while waiting for the file to be decrypted? It seems like it might be the Flash, given his time/dimension-travelling powers, but it doesn't look like Ezra Miller and seems to be wearing some sort of armour.

Answer: It is Flash. He is wearing armour because of whatever has transpired in the future. He often wears an armoured suit in dire circumstances in the comics.

Continuity mistake: Michelle ends the phonecall in her car at 6:27pm. When she regains consciousness in the bunker it's 6:29pm. Either she was retrieved from her crashed car, taken to the bunker, chained up and hooked to an IV in 2 minutes (impossible), or she's been unconscious for exactly 24 hours, which would be a sign of a serious brain injury (with no other symptoms). Either way something's not right.

Spotlight (2015)

Continuity mistake: When Rachel McAdams is interviewing Joe in the coffee shop, she starts off with a couple of lines written on her notepad, then half a page, then back to a few lines, then a full page, etc. It changes in almost every shot.

Creed (2015)

Trivia: Crowd scenes in Goodison Park for the final fight were filmed at half time during an Everton game, which explains why quite a few people in the crowd are waving blue Everton football scarves during a boxing match.

Creed (2015)

Character mistake: In the final fight at Goodison Park, the commentator says 100,000 people are in attendance. Capacity of Goodison Park is 40,000, and even allowing for people in the "pitch" area around the ring there's nowhere near space for that many, unless there was another layer of fans standing on people's shoulders.

Daddy's Home (2015)

Continuity mistake: When Will Ferrell comes home to find the tree house built, Mark Wahlberg crashes into him from the zipline, knocking him to the floor. He gets up with his jacket half off his right shoulder, where it stays throughout the scene until he corrects it, except for one shot partway through the conversation where his jacket is on properly.

Black Mass (2015)

Continuity mistake: After Jimmy and Billy's mother dies, they're sitting in the kitchen having a drink. Billy's beer is about 3/4 full, then in a closer shot it's more full, with only a few sips taken.
