Bumblebee picture

Plot hole: How can Bumblebee and Optimus already have the car specs and colours before they leave Cybertron for the first time to come to earth? Optimus didn't have this when they came to earth in the first Transformers movie.

Suggested correction: First of all, this might not be the same continuity as the older Transformers films. Second of all, the cars on Cybertron might be Cybertronian vehicles. Optimus scanned the semi in the first film so that he could be a different vehicle than he already was. There is no reason this could not have happened.

I'd like to add that we know for a fact that this is not the same continuity. It is a reboot. See the Wikipedia article.

Ready Player One picture

Plot hole: In all scenes where special or heavy items are used against the sixers, they are 'zeroed' in waves or circles. This can be seen by their stations turning red in clusters. This makes no sense as the stations have fixed positions, meaning that the sixers would have identical positions in the Oasis and have no freedom or own will to move relative to each other.

Suggested correction: From a military point of view it makes perfect sense. AOE weapons would be most likely to hit members of the same squads, companies or battalions. It would make sense for squad mates in the oasis to stick together in stations as well. I just watched that scene. As long as the Sixers are trained soldiers or players it makes perfect sense.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom picture Video

Plot hole: There was only one T-Rex on the island. When Owen and the others are running down the side of the island escaping the volcanic ash, another dino tries to eat them but then the T-Rex shows up and kills it. This establishes the T-Rex was there in that spot. Owen and the others then wash up back on shore and find the soldiers loading the dinos on a boat and stow away. Then when Blue is bleeding out they have to get a blood transfusion and the only viable candidate is the T-Rex who is now captured and sedated on the ship. How did the soldiers capture, let alone bring the Rex to the ship from where it was seen by Owen back up over hills and rocky terrain? It would have been an all day process just to haul the T-Rex to the ship. It just magically appears on the ship after they stow away on it and can provide the blood Blue needs.

Suggested correction: There was a shot showing the T-rex being carried to the boat via helicopter during the beach scene before the transfusion occurs.

Suggested correction: Since we never see this process and some time had passed-as evidenced by the water scene-this can't really be considered a mistake. Plus, we see her walk off-screen so we have no idea how far she had to walk and the people could've been near that area for all we know. Plus, their job was to haul dinosaurs off the island, much like in The Lost World; I'm pretty sure they were prepared.

Actually only a little time has passed. The volcano is already exploding with lava and ash racing down the island. When Owen and crew reach the boats they are racing against time still to get on board before the lava reaches them. The mercs would not have had time to find, capture, and put the T-rex on the ship in such little time, even if it came to them first. They already had their hands full with the dinos they already captured. Again, getting the T-rex would have been a very long process and they did not have the time with the volcano already erupting towards them.

Try watching a video on YouTube by Jeremy James Prutchick where he talks about this scene.

You see them airlifting the T-rex using lifting straps when Owen and co are standing on the beach.

Watch that scene again. If you can't, go to the Cinema Sins video of it I linked to this mistake and go to the 6 minute mark. That is a much much smaller carnivore, not a T-rex.

The T-Rex can been seen being taken by a Chinook helicopter onto the boat. However, your original mistake that they wouldn't have had time to capture and transport it is valid.

Also, you see a shot of Rexy in a helicopter harness.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout picture

Plot hole: On the plane they are told they have 2 mins to suit up, then once suited up they have a further 10 seconds before the rear door opens. 2 minutes is not enough time to put the equipment on to do the halo jump.

The Predator picture

Plot hole: As the evolved Predator's ship takes off it leaves Casey Bracket alone in hilly forest terrain. The ship then flies a long distance before crashing and the Predator and McKenna start fighting, just for Bracket to show up and help out of nowhere. Impossible for her to cover that distance that fast in hilly forest terrain.

Robin Hood picture

Plot hole: Robin of Locksley is going round town with his black servant John with a metal hand (the only black person in the village it would appear too). John subsequently gets arrested later for being affiliated with Robin Hood. Despite him being not only the only black person the village but also the only one with a metal hand, the sheriff of Nottingham does not realise that Robin of Locksley is Robin Hood or even question why his servant is involved in the rebellion.

Plot hole: The idea of using the Aston Martin instead of the hybrid cars is because of the low technology in case the villain used a cyber attack against the car, only problem is the Aston Martin is packed with gadgets using high technology so using that is pointless.

Plot hole: There is no way Anna could know that Hester was going to be at the auction. The circumstances that led to Hester and Tom being captured can't possibly have spread to the Anti-Traction League, they were immediately taken to the slave auction after being captured. Anna also instantly recognizes Hester when she sees her despite the fact that Hester was 8 years old the last time she would have seen her.

Suggested correction: Anna might have very well just been there to do anti-tractionist things, it was an auction made of towns after all a prime target to hit many options at once or hide bombs on for a bigger city to gobble up and go off later. Once she saw Hester her plans simply changed. As for how she recognized her, it is possible Anna had been tracking / keeping an eye on her. It wouldn't be impossible to ask around for a scar faced girl moving from town to town and might have gotten a pic somewhere.

These are all wild guesses that aren't confirmed by the film itself. They do not qualify as corrections.
