Groundhog Day (1993)

Question: Phil is unable to leave Punxsutawney after his broadcast because of the blizzard. Has there ever been any explanation as to why he doesn't try to leave Punxsutawney as soon as he wakes up? I'm sure the time loop would have still been in effect, but unless I'm mistaken, the movie never addresses whether or not Phil ever tried to leave town before the roads were closed.

Answer: As you stated, it's never addressed as to whether or not he attempted to leave town. Phil lived through many more days than is shown in the film, so it's possible he left at some point, though there's little reason for him to do so because he wouldn't get far, and, when he wakes up the next morning, he'll be right back in the town.

Deadpool (2016)

Trivia: In the comics, Negasonic Teenage Warhead's powers are vastly different than what is shown in the film. In order to get Marvel's approval to change her powers for the film, Fox was forced to relinquish the film rights to the character Ego the Living Planet, who was packaged with the Fantastic 4 film rights. Ego will appear in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 portrayed by Kurt Russell. Similar to Negasonic Teenage Warhead being named after a Monster Magnet song, Monster Magnet has a song named after Ego the Living Planet, which can found on the same album.

Question: It's stated in "The Return of the King" that the Witch-king of Angmar is Sauron's greatest servant. Given this, why is he portrayed as somewhat bumbling in this film? A scene in the extended edition of "The Return of the King" shows him confronting Gandalf and even destroying his staff and he also has the reputation of being unkillable, but in this film he is chased off by Aragorn swinging a sword and a torch at him, and is also defeated by Arwen using a river to wash him away.

Answer: The Witch-King of Angmar, as well as the other 8 Nazg├╗l were severely weakened since the defeat of Sauron, when they were send out to find the ring they had been dormant for decades, that's why they were so easily defeated by fire and waves. In the later movies their powers had increased significantly, especially the witch king's.

Monty Burns' Fleeing Circus - S28-E1

Trivia: At one point in this episode Homer is talking about the drink named after golf legend Arnold Palmer. This episode coincidentally aired the same day that Arnold Palmer died.

Trivia: When Cap and Black Widow are driving to his old army base in New Jersey, she asks him where he learned how to steal a car. This is a reference to the 1990 Captain America film, in which Captain America steals someone's car on two separate occasions.

Heart of Ice - S1-E3

Other mistake: Batman uses a thermos full of chicken noodle soup to defeat Mr. Freeze, and moments later gives Summer Gleason a security tape that incriminates Ferris Boyle. When Batman pulls out both of these aforementioned items, there is a corresponding clicking sound that suggests he pulls them from his utility belt, but both items are far too large to fit inside the belt. They also could not have been simply been hanging from his belt, as Mr. Freeze had possession of Batman's belt a few minutes prior and they were not there.

Heart of Ice - S1-E3

Stupidity: Ferris Boyle tries to cover up his sabotage of Victor Fries' experiment, but he opts to store the incriminating security tape of the event in a filing cabinet instead of simply destroying the footage.

Serious B

Heart of Ice - S1-E3

Other mistake: When Batman is watching the security footage of Victor Fries' accident, at first Fries is addressing the camera directly which follows him and pans according to his movements and Ferris Boyle interrupting him, which would suggest a second person was in the room with a handheld camera. But after Ferris Boyle enters the room and orders Fries' experiment terminated, there are several cuts from various angles in the room suggesting surveillance cameras. The surveillance style footage also often conveniently cuts to the face of whichever person happens to be speaking or will cut to a certain angle in order to put emphasis on the action, all of which would require multiple mounted cameras and purposeful editing by either Boyle or one of his subordinates, which would be completely illogical since they don't want anyone to see the footage in the first place.

Heart of Ice - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: When Batman - disguised as a security guard - opens his utility belt, the belt opens and shows a configuration of buttons and a split-second later, a key card materializes out of thin air in front of the buttons.
