Mistakes in current releases

Rocketman picture

Other mistake: During one of the recording studio scenes, there's a short segment that shows a bunch of VU (audio level) meters close up. The very first meter in that sequence is not a VU meter. Its from of an old HF (High Frequency) Amateur Radio transceiver; The scale is marked for RF, SWR, and ALC. I'm suspecting that someone involved with the post production editing is a Ham.

Best mistakes of all time

Blue Thunder picture

Other mistake: Murphy lands the helicopter on a railway line so an oncoming train will destroy it completely, and this happens exactly on cue with huge, dramatic explosions and flying debris. Apparently the train driver doesn't think this is important enough to interrupt his busy schedule - he doesn't stop the train. We do not hear brakes being applied - the wheels would make a noise like the sky coming down - and the train doesn't slow down at all - it just keeps on going.

Trivia: Director Mike Judge wanted the story to be able to take place anywhere, so the state is never specified. Even the license plates on the cars are stateless.

Doctor Strange picture

Factual error: In the first scene where Dr Strange is preparing for surgery he uses improper surgical gowning technique breaking aseptic protocols. Strange puts on a mask after washing his hands, contaminating his clean hands by bringing them in proximity to the non-sterile environment of his face. Surgical masks must be worn before the full washing of hands. Another error is that he inserted his hands all the way through his gown to don gloves. Hands must never leave the sleeves and gloves must be put on with the sleeves still covering.

Best Disney mistakes

Tarzan picture

Deliberate mistake: When Tarzan fights with the leopard, it scratches his chest. However after they fall into the pit and Tarzan comes out carrying the dead leopard, the scratches on his chest have amazingly healed. [It is a long-standing Disney tradition that no evidence of violence is shown on screen. Still a mistake, but there's why].

Best Star Wars mistakes

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story picture

Plot hole: When the inspection team goes into the Rogue One shuttle and then the Rebel team comes out of the shuttle in the inspection team's disguise, no one near the landing pad or in the building notices that two stormtroopers have disappeared from the group, the Imperial Officer has grown a beard in less than 5 minutes, and an Imperial Droid has come into the group.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: It is entirely feasible that 2 of the stormtroopers would stay on the ship, and that anyone standing around the perimeter could miss the facial features of the officer. The delivery of a droid could well be the purpose for the cargo ship arriving.
