Back to the Future mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Marty arrives in 1955, he lands on Peabody's farm and rams through the pine tree he then hits a scarecrow which flies over the top of his car. Then as they show it from the inside the scarecrow slams into the windshield - but how can it slam into his windshield if it is already over the car? (00:31:30)

Best trivia

Scream picture

Trivia: The original title of the film was 'Scary Movie', the same title as its spoof.

Biggest Marvel mistakes

Guardians of the Galaxy picture

Revealing mistake: Rocket is canonically four feet tall and weighs fifty-five pounds, about the size of a six-year-old. At the end of the movie, when carrying a knocked-out Rocket, Quill's arms are not tense as if he was holding that much weight.

Biggest Pixar mistakes

Wall-E picture

Factual error: As a trash compactor Wall-E does not function logically. When he fills his chest compartment with garbage and runs his internal compactor, the cube that exits his body is the same volume as the trash he puts in, despite that trash having been compacted. He does not add extra trash to fill the empty space after running the compactor - there are three scenes that show him filling up only once with loose garbage and then ejecting a densely compacted cube.

Suggested correction: You haven't noticed the exact shape of his body. The back sticks out a tad. Garbage fills the space and the back pushes in to compress it.

Biggest Disney mistakes

Hercules picture

Continuity mistake: When he sees Meg in the river of death, he reaches down and touches it. Then, when he jumps in, he makes a dive of at least 50 feet. (01:11:25)
