Question: The data for Genesis are transmitted to Kruge, however, later, he has one of his men murder David Marcus (Admiral Kirk's son) and demands Genesis from Kirk. He had already downloaded the data, so what additional information did Kruge want?

Answer: Kruge only had the proposal video that talked about what Genesis was. He didn't have any actual data on how Genesis works or how it could be created. Having footage of a nuclear blast doesn't give you knowledge about how to build a nuclear device.

Christine (1983)

Factual error: When Arnie Cunningham visits Dennis Guilder in the hospital, Dennis does not have a back brace. Patients with broken backs are put in a back brace to immobilize the spine, serving the same purpose as a cast.

Starsky & Hutch (2004)

Question: When Reese Feldman is on his yacht and shoots the guy for screwing up, he pulls a gun with a silencer out of a cooler. Why would you need a silencer in the middle of nowhere?

Answer: Feldman is the type of guy who wants to be as thorough as possible, as seen with his cocaine tasting like sugar and drug dogs being unable to smell it. He would not want any ships that could possibly be passing by to hear the shot.

Mr. Destiny (1990)

Trivia: Ellen Robertson's dog is named Hercules. Hercules was the name of Arnold Schwarzenegger's character in his first movie, and Arnold also starred with Linda Hamilton (who played Ellen Robertson/Burrows) in The Terminator and Terminator 2. This was done again in Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines which had a scene with a cat named Hercules.

Weird Science (1985)

Other mistake: When Chet is getting on everyone's case about everything that is wrong with the house, he says to Lisa, "I didn't think it was a whale's d__k, honey" in reference to the missile going through the house. The French subtitles has "bitte" to mean the portion of the male anatomy. The correct French word is "bite". "Bitte" means either "bite" or "bollard" in English.

Continuity mistake: After Chad Feldheimer and Linda Litzke leave the Russian embassy and pull up to Hardbodies where they work, there are no numbers above the door. Right after they enter, the interior shots show 1665 backwards above both sets of doors.

11th Sep 2011

The Jackal (1997)

Question: Why did the Jackal pick up Douglas at the gay bar? How did that fit into his plan?

Answer: A couple of reasons. Douglas was a presidential aide, and could be giving Jackal information about the president and family's movements, even without meaning to. Secondly, he needed to be near DC to carry out the assassination attempt, and since the FBI et al were looking for him since they knew he had entered the States, having a place to live without having to go to a hotel where it is likely the staff would have been notified to be on the lookout for him gave him some anonymity.

11th Sep 2011

Innerspace (1987)

Trivia: In the scene where Jack Putter's nightmare (about the overpriced items) becomes real while he's at work, a customer in line wearing glasses and a gray jacket says, "at $800 a bottle, who'd want to?". This was Chuck Jones. This is one of many references to "Looney Tunes"

Time Bandits (1981)

Question: Evil tells of his assistants, "tell me about computers". And he later says, "show me subscriber trunk dialing". Why does such a powerful entity have an interest in technology?

Phixius

Trivia: When Pee-wee walks into Mario's Magic Shop, there is an imperial stormtrooper helmet from Star Wars on the top shelf on the left.

Plot hole: When Jason first wakes up in the morgue, he kills two hospital employees inside the hospital (a semi-public place) and leaves them there. Later in the movie, Rob Dyer (the hitchhiker)in trying to convince Trish Jarvis that Jason Voorhees is still alive, he says that two hospital employees disappeared. Their bodies were not discovered in the middle of a hospital?
