The Hurricane Heist picture

Factual error: The repairman was freeing the soldiers from inside the locked gate using bolt cutters. The terrorist noticed this on the video feed so they electrified the fence, shocking the repairman. This would not have happened because the bolt cutters have plastic handles just for that reason, to keep you from being electrocuted by mistake. (00:54:50)

Mile 22 picture

Character mistake: During the opening raid of the FSB safe house, an operator is seen taking hard drives out of a safe. As he does, he states over the radio that they are "SSDs" (Solid State Drives), when in reality they are normal HDDs (Hard Disk Drives), which are noticeably larger than SSDs. (00:07:25)

A Quiet Place picture

Factual error: Grain engulfment is not depicted in a scientific manner. It is not possible for engulfment to happen without a valve being opened at the base - which has not been shown in the movie when the boy falls in the grain storage. It is very unlikely that two engulfments will happen so close by in the same storage - if so, they will converge quickly. But, the movie shows both victims help each other one by one. They succeed in 5-10 seconds. Engulfment become entrapment in less than 20 seconds and require more than thrice the body weight to pull some one out (unlike one kid being able to pull other one out while both are on the grain). Finally, they both sit on the door and avoid entrapment.

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

Suggested correction: It's possible for grain to look sturdy but not be underneath so the engulfment could have possible. But you're right about them not being able to pull each other out.

Fifty Shades Freed picture

Continuity mistake: When Ana and Christian are having sex on the dining room table, she drops Christian's pants below his butt. Scene cuts and Christian's back is shown, with his pants above his butt. Then cuts back and they're below again. (00:54:40 - 00:56:50)

Character mistake: When Logan tries to use both his and his mom's phones after her fingers were broken by the Man in Black, he throws them in disgust when he finds the SIM cards have been removed.

The Nun picture

Continuity mistake: When Sister Irene's habit is ripped at the back, you can see a bra strap on her left shoulder which disappears when she is seen at the front and when the camera is closer to her back (when she has the pentagram carved into her).

Plot hole: Robert first shoots the electrical transformer on the pole's top, then enters the bakery, slices the wheat sacks and uses electrical fans to create a dust cloud for a dust explosion. How are the electrical fans supposed to work after the electricity is cut?

Red Sparrow picture

Factual error: When Dominica is tasked with swapping Intelligence using a laptop in the hotel, she is using floppy discs which is highly unlikely in the realm of international espionage. Not only do they not hold enough info at only 1.44MB each, but laptops have not had floppy drives for quite some years and this movie is supposed to take place in 2017.

New this month Continuity mistake: When she is in the boat she takes off her blindfold entirely, but after some talking the blindfold is around her neck all of a sudden.

Reprisal picture

Revealing mistake: During the police chase with Gabriel on his motorcycle, he stops and turns to start shooting at one of the cops. By appearances, Gabriel is using a standard Glock which had a magazine capacity of 15 rounds. He has no extensions on it at all with the handle and magazine visible. Yet he proceeds to fire the gun 33-35 times at the cop car without reloading and in continuous fire. (00:57:55)

Black Water picture

Plot hole: Kingsley holds the only key card that can access the control room where the Captain is. He only has one card. He gives this key card to Rhodes so he can go up there and talk the Captain into not taking the sub to the surface yet, while Kingsley and his men head down to stop Scott and Taylor. When they employ the help of Marco and take out Kingsley and his men, Marco bends down and pulls the key card off Kingsley's neck so that now they have it... only Kingsley didn't have the key any more, as Rhodes had it and was still in the control room. A second key card magically materialized on Kingsley's neck.

Searching picture

Other mistake: When the detective sends the traffic cam footage, a Gmail alert pops up. However, the dad is currently using Margot's computer, not his. He previously logged into Margot's gmail account on this computer so any alerts received would be Margot's mail, not his.

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)

Hotel Artemis picture

Continuity mistake: After they get into the hotel and Waikiki is wheeling his brother in a chair, his hand is on the back and his thumb is sticking up in the air. The Nurse gives him a shot and it jump cuts to a close up, and suddenly his thumb is down. (00:09:30)

Slender Man picture

Continuity mistake: In the basement when the girls are talking, one mentions to Chloe that she and Carl would make an adorable couple. Chloe's left arm is stretched up above her head in this shot. But in the next shot when she corrects her on the guy's name, it's suddenly down by her lap. (00:06:10)

SuperFly picture

Continuity mistake: When Youngblood and Georgina throw the molotov cocktails at Juju from the balcony, watch closely - right as Youngblood throws the second molotov cocktail and the camera cuts from a bird's eye to a ground-level angle, the position of the two men and the carpet they're standing on changes between cuts.

Mandy picture

Factual error: Spoiler! The cultists burned Mandy alive by wrapping a sleeping bag around her, putting gas on her and hanging her from a metal swing set and setting her on fire. After Red frees himself later and craws up to her remains, it's shown that she is barely a pile of ash with her skull still somewhat in shape when he picks it up. It then crumbles into just ash showing she had been fully burnt to the very center. This would not have been the case with how they burned her. Their was nowhere near enough heat or kindling to keep her body burning long enough to turn completely to ash with no remains like that. She would have died, yes, but would have mostly stayed intact as a single body burnt very bad. Bones, features, charred organs would still have been left behind. (01:04:00)
