Spider-Man: Homecoming picture

Factual error: The ferry splits in half down the middle...enough so the water is flooding in dramatically as the split grows. There is no possible way that the two halves of the ferry could have remained afloat like that. It would have sunk immediately. Then, as Iron Man "welds" the two halves back together, the ferry is afloat at the same waterline as before the incident...certainly not feasible with all the water it took on.

Suggested correction: Actually, it could be the same waterline, because all the cars are seen floating out. That way, a huge amount of weight would have been lost, but with the new addition of the water taken on, it would be about the same.

Continuity mistake: Daniels' face gets splattered with blood but when she uses the radio to call back the others, her face on the screen shows no blood. In the other shots after it's there again.

Transformers: The Last Knight picture Video

Audio problem: Anthony Hopkins is in his car with Cogman, discussing Pangea the super continent over the phone with John Turturro. There are two instances in this scene in which Anthony Hopkins' voice has been dubbed over by a different actor that does not sound like him. Anthony Hopkins first says "That's Pangea. The super continent." The scene then flashes back to the round table and the dubbed voice attempting to sound like Hopkins says "It's the same shape on the round table." The dubbed voice is heard again when he says "Genius", before reverting back to Anthony Hopkins immediately after when he says "Stonehenge."

Life picture

Factual error: After Dr. Derry's hand is crushed by Calvin, it dangles and flops every time it is seen so that the audience can see that the bones are severely broken. However, in zero-g, the hand would float rather than swing limply.

Logan picture

Continuity mistake: When Pierce first begins to interrogate Caliban in the safe house in Mexico, a large portion of Caliban's albino makeup is smudged below his nose, revealing the actor's natural skin in his first close-up of the scene; after switching to a close-up of Pierce, then back to Caliban, the smudge has been fixed.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 picture

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie when the guardians are getting ready to fight off an inter-dimensional being Rocket winks a couple of times at Starlord. Starlord then responds but is looking to his left at Rocket, whilst Rocket is on his right side. The scene is for no reason mirrored, proven by the big orange device behind him also switching from being on his left to on his right. (00:03:45)

Stem picture

Factual error: No matter how sophisticated the STEM chip is, it would not enable Grey (Logan Marshall-Green) to go from a completely horizontal position to a completely vertical position in one fluid motion, without bending his knees, and he does this several times in the film.

The Humanity Bureau picture

New this month Continuity mistake: When Noah enters the first house, a man wearing a black boggan on his head turns to look at him. Close to him is an old woman sitting on a couch watching TV. In the this shot, her shadow on the wall is slightly elongated and thin. But it cuts to a different angle and you can tell they moved the lighting around for the shot as then her shadow is roughly the same shape and size as her and much dark and thicker. (00:03:20)
