The NeverEnding Story II: The Next Chapter picture

Other mistake: When Bastian and Atreyu gets to Xayide's castle, laser beams are are searching the ground for the intruders. Right before Bastian gets hit by the laser we see him running for Atreyu. Then we see light (obviously from a spotlight) being switched on and hitting the rock which Bastian jumps on. However we see the light from the spotlight move out of position as if the person controlling the spotlight thinks that Bastian will run further off the rock. When it cuts the light is back on Bastian and the rock. (00:39:00)

Mary Poppins Returns picture

Other mistake: As established in the original and this film, when the Admiral fires his cannon, everything in the house falls off walls and mantles, and everything needs to be caught to prevent them from being damaged. However, when he fires his cannon as Mary Poppins and the children are going out to have the bowl repaired, Michael has already left for work, Jane and Ellen are standing outside, and Mary, the children, are getting onto Jack's bike - leaving no-one in the house to catch the falling objects which would therefore all be smashed or damaged.

Suggested correction: The shell casings appear to be unfired, but this is only because of the lighting and angle. Upon closer examination they are empty 5.56mm brass as they should be.

Other mistake: When Frank first runs into Ray's ghost on the street, and they duck into an alleyway to talk, Ray accidentally calls Frank (Michael J. Fox) by his real name "Mike" instead of his character name "Frank." Ray says "I felt this vise-like grip squeezing my heart, and I couldn't breathe, Mike."

Shazam! picture

Other mistake: Towards the end of the film when they're at the fair, Mary refers to the Sins as "sins", but there is no way she would know that they are sins.


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

Suggested correction: If you think about it, Billy shouldn't have known either. However he does posses knowledge of these after he transforms and receives the powers. It is evident that when the other children held the staff and said Shazam to get the powers as well, that it also came with some, at least limited, knowledge of these things.

Quantom X Premium member

Agreed, except the scene I'm referring to takes place before the rest of the family get powers.


She called them "sins" before she held the staff.

He does get told they are sins.

Mary may not have known but Billy would, because old Shazam talked to Billy about how a previous champion released the sins into his world.

Solo: A Star Wars Story picture

Other mistake: Towards the end, Chewbacca and Beckett have walked some distance from the landed yacht. They come up a small slope and are faced with Han, waiting for them. But an aerial shot shows that slope is very short and just runs down to a cliff. There's no way they could have got to the base of the slope to walk up it in the first place.
