Other mistake: Davis tells Kate to go and she jumps out of the falling plane, her chute opening. Davis then takes a minute to free Harvey from the plane as it's still falling before they both get out. Once they are free falling he takes a few seconds before he pulls their chutes as well. However as they are coming down close to the plane crash site, Kate is near level with them in altitude as they are all coming down together. With how high she was when she jumped out compared to the time it took for Davis and Harvey to get out of the plane and open their chutes, she would have been several minutes behind them in the sky, not right next to them. (00:47:45 - 00:49:05)

Ready Player One picture

Factual error: The third key Easter egg was actually a color-changing flashing pixel in the Atari Adventure game. You had to grab the purple bridge (they looked like outward facing brackets) and go into a box in the lower left corner of the blue maze and move along the bottom left corner. In the movie, it was picked up in the invisible maze. The wall you walk through then flashes along with the pixel, and you may move through it as shown in the movie to see the author's name.

Suggested correction: That isn't a factual error. It's a creative change from the source material. A factual error is something based in reality...not a fictional book.

Other mistake: Throughout the movie, Hank's lab in its shrunken form is constantly jostled and tossed around, but when it's restored to full size in a new location, nothing is out of place and everything still works perfectly.

Suggested correction: Given that he has prepared the lab to be shrunken and mobilized at a moment's notice, he probably thought of this ahead of time and secured everything important in place.

Future World picture

New this week Continuity mistake: When the boy is given the gun and bullets so he can go and find a temple to cure his mother, he has a handful of bullets and one slips down and falls into his sleeve, partly sticking out. It cuts to his face and then back to his hand from a different angle. He has his hand cupped still but you can tell it's empty with no bullets in it. Also his gun keeps changing positions in his other hand in each shot. From pointed down, to pointed straight up, to pointed to the side. (00:17:15)

Maze Runner: The Death Cure picture

Continuity mistake: When Newt is straddling Thomas with a knife pointed down at his upper left chest, it's very obvious that the knife goes into his chest, through Thomas' shirt. A few minutes later, when Thomas is kneeling over Newt, after Newt stabs himself in the chest, the stab hole in Thomas' shirt is no longer there and he isn't bleeding. (01:50:45)

The First Purge picture

New this week Visible crew/equipment: When Dmitri gets weapons from the back of the government vehicle: you can see the reflection of 3 crew members in the window of the truck. In the same shot you can see a crew member's gloved hand holding a flashlight inside the vehicle to light the scene. (01:16:00)

The Meg picture

Factual error: Black smoker hydrothermal vents are generally found in areas where the sea floor is spreading, opening fissures. Would not be found in subduction zones as in the Marianas Trench where crust is being destroyed.
