Mistakes in current releases

Godzilla: King of the Monsters picture

New this month Other mistake: When Godzilla emerges from the sea towards the end of the movie, what is he standing on? You can see the submarine at the side of him so the water must be reasonably deep. Then he just swims away. (01:37:15)

Best mistakes of all time

Passengers picture

Factual error: During the 31st year of the Avalon's voyage, the ship passes close to the star Arcturus, which is about 37 light years from Earth. Later in the movie, it was stated that the Avalon was moving at around 50% of the speed of light. The ship would not have reached Arcturus in the time allotted.

New this month

The Twilight Zone picture

Hocus-Pocus and Frisby - S3-E30

New this month Visible crew/equipment: When Frisby tells the two travellers that they're looking at the grandad of the American automobile, we can see the reflection of a crewmember wearing a suit, possibly the director, who stands up from a directors chair (also seen in a following shot). Then as Frisby tries to locate the gas tank, the shadow of the moving boom mic is visible on the store's doors. (00:06:20)

Happy Gilmore picture

Trivia: The evil man at the nursing home is played by Ben Stiller, then a rising star, in an uncredited role.

Recent unanswered questions

Back to the Future picture

Question: Doc Brown's workshop at the beginning of the movie strikes me as highly reminiscent of the one belonging to Caractacus Potts in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, right down to the elaborate food-dispensing mechanisms. Potts also had a dog named Edison in that movie, just as Doc has one named Einstein. Were these similarities intended as a deliberate homage, or are they just similar expressions of the "mad scientist" trope?

Best Marvel mistakes

Guardians of the Galaxy picture

Continuity mistake: When the Dark Aster enters the atmosphere at the end of the film, its wings untwist as it descends, in most of the scenes afterwards and the hologram the ship's wings are still twisted, then later during the battle they untwist again.

Best Pixar mistakes

Ratatouille picture

Continuity mistake: When Collette asks, "What did the customer say?", there is no ladder in front of the stove. Then right before Chef Skinner tastes the soup, he is able to pull out a ladder from the front of the stove. (00:26:25)

Best Disney mistakes

Meet the Robinsons picture

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Lewis is first on the roof-top, and Mildred comes up to speak with him, the box he is sitting next to is plain wood on one side, and tallied on the other. When there is a close-up of Lewis' legs and the torn paper, when he's ripping the pages out of his book, the box has stencilled writing that is upside down. (00:06:25 - 00:18:30)

Best Star Wars mistakes

Star Wars: The Force Awakens pictureStar Wars: The Force Awakens mistake picture

Revealing mistake: While Poe leads the aerial assault on the oscillator, in the closeups of Poe and other X-wing fighter pilots, note the cockpit windows at the pilots' left and right have identical marks and scratches in their individual X-wings. It's particularly noticeable when one closeup follows another.
