Breaking News in Yuba County picture

Character mistake: After banker Karl was reported missing from his home, the police detective did not even think to locate his car - which he could have merely driven away in (meaning he was not kidnapped).

Here Today picture

Revealing mistake: After Charlie talks to Emma in Francine's old bedroom and is standing in the doorway, the background (segment of the hallway) is obviously fake. Shown are less than five of the top steps on the staircase, only a fraction of the size of real steps. The lower section of the banister is also a reduced size. (01:31:35)

Below Zero picture

Other mistake: The issued sidearm for the Spanish National Police is the H&K USP 9mm Compact, which has a capacity of 13+1 bullets, and the Civil Guards' is the Beretta 92fs/M9, which is a 9mm and has a magazine capacity of 15+1 bullets. As of 2020 the Beretta is being phased out for the H&K USP C. The police officer fires a total of 5 bullets from his Beretta then the slide locks back because its dry. He has no magazines for reloads either. I highly doubt the Spanish police issues 5 bullets to their officers. (00:33:00 - 00:35:30)

The Penthouse picture

Audio problem: When Charles knocked on the man's door to offer storm repairs, the sounds didn't match; they were slightly delayed, with the last knocking sound coming after Charles stopped knocking and lowered his hand.

CODA picture

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the film Ruby says goodbye to her family and gets in the car to head to college. The car pulls away from her home and drives for about 5 seconds when Ruby yells "stop the car". She exits the car which is positioned nearly exactly where it was when they started on the families' property.

Music picture

Factual error: No judge would award guardianship of a person with something like autism to a sibling who's a recovering alcoholic and drug dealer.

Suggested correction: I think it is POSSIBLE, but not probable. Someone on the spectrum may have poor coping skills when dealing with strangers or would not do well if placed in an unfamiliar environment. Placement with a sibling - even one as you described (recovering alcoholic and drug dealer) - may be less traumatic and disruptive than with a non-relative or stranger. A judge would have to weigh the bad against the good while considering the person's needs and the sibling's ability to meet or exceed those needs.

The Nest picture

Continuity mistake: At the restaurant, the background varies a few times behind Beth and Jack seated at a table. When the background is blurred, a young man can be seen to the left behind Beth, but he is not there when the background is clear. (Despite the different camera angle, he should still be visible.) Instead, two men are seated at the bar counter or an elevated table and a woman behind them is facing the screen. (00:11:47 - 00:12:49)

Batman: Dying is Easy picture

Continuity mistake: After talking with Bullock on the roof, Batman is in his vehicle and talking to Hugo. On the screen, Hugo lifts up a glass to his mouth to take a drink, but when the camera cuts to a close up of the screen, suddenly his arm is lower, and he is once again lifting the glass to his face. (00:05:37)

Suggested correction: This movie doesn't begin where the previous one ended. Kasady simply got a haircut between movies.

Dark Web: Cicada 3301 picture

Factual error: Morse code is supposedly being transmitted by the blinking street lights. They supposedly spell "For 3veryth5h1ng that 7iv3s is holy." I know Morse code. It was just a random scattering of letters. (01:00:05)

Every Breath You Take picture

Other mistake: James supposedly did not give his name when he filed a complaint against Dr. Clark, which would make conducting an investigation to determine if the complaint was valid very difficult. Dr. Clark would be entitled to due process (presumption of innocence) and it is highly unlikely that the Medical Commission would have taken such quick and drastic measures against Dr. Clark under the circumstances.

Endangered Species picture

Continuity mistake: In the initial view of Billy in the tree ("saved for later" by the leopard sleeping on another branch), his head is hanging face up alongside a tree branch as wide as his head. When the camera zooms in showing the middle of Billy's face, the left side of the screen should be all brown, representing the branch. Instead, there is blue sky down to his eye and blurred tan/brown representing the branch. The brown might supposed to be the dried grass, but Billy has not moved his head. (00:51:25)

The Girl Who Got Away picture

Factual error: The initial police scene takes pace 20 years ago. The present year is 2021, so 20 years prior would've made it 2001. The police Chevrolet Tahoe at the opening scene of the film was only made from 2007 and up. (00:05:40)
