Top Gun: Maverick picture

Factual error: The radar guided SAMs are consistently evaded/triggered by the pilots' flares, which in reality only work against heat seeking missiles. Radar guided missiles would be defended against using chaff, basically clouds of aluminium foil strips. It was mentioned in some interviews they didn't want use chaff as it wouldn't really be visible for the audience - hence why they only deploy flares.

Uncharted picture

Deliberate mistake: The baddies somehow manage to place the net under the two humongous ships by simply digging with their shovels in a matter of minutes, when they would need a bulldozer and several hours instead.

Continuity mistake: After Becky charges the drone she climbs down without refitting the glass cover. Later a buzzard lands on the top of the tower, on the red cover.

Jurassic World Dominion picture

Factual error: The deer in the forest somehow does not hear the giant dinosaur approaching, so doesn't run away. (01:21:10)

Suggested correction: A different interpretation is that the deer knows the difference in the sounds - gurgling/roars of an approaching herbivore versus carnivore - so it didn't perceive it as a threat until it got unusually close (so the deer looked to see why). The dinosaur flung the deer aside, then proceeded to eat the vegetation where the deer was. It isn't likely that the dinosaur (if a carnivore) would toss aside a fresh deer meat brunch in favor of some green brush.

Avatar: The Way of Water picture

Continuity mistake: Jack and Neytiri successfully save their children and eliminate four soldiers from a group of six. However, during the extraction scene, all six soldiers reappear.

Memory picture

Factual error: El Paso, Texas, where the entire movie is set, is nowhere near the ocean or large enough bodies of water where a marina with moorings for megayachts could be located. The yacht scene, while fanciful, could not have taken place in El Paso or anywhere reasonably nearby (even by US standards).

Moonfall picture

Factual error: In the subplot on earth, the heroes' family members are trying to outrun the falling moon's gravity that's sucking everything into the air. So, naturally they duck into a barn, because, of course, gravity can't affect you behind a wall. And sure enough, behind the wall, they're suddenly safe.

Violent Night picture

Factual error: The opening states the location as Bristol, England. Santa is drinking in a pub on Shirely Street (neither the pub or the street exist in Bristol), then shortly after is shown leaving from the rooftop, on his sleigh, with multiple high rise buildings in the background. Bristol does not have high rise buildings in the main city centre, only a few blocks of flats, which all have flat roof tops, not like those depicted.

The Batman picture

Other mistake: When Batman is video calling the Riddler and passes the phone over to the D/A, you can see Batman's face still looking at the phone in the reflection of the Riddler's glasses.

A Man Called Otto picture

Continuity mistake: At 00:41:28, When Otto sits in his car, the steering wheel has no logo of the car's brand, but later on 01:08:45 the car's brand (Chevrolet) is visible when Marisol drives the car. (00:41:28 - 01:08:45)

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness picture

Continuity mistake: At the wedding, Christine tells Stephen something quite hurtful; wide-eyed, he asks her how long did she have it in the barrel; a black partygoer walks behind him but is gone in the reverse shot. Moreover, she replies "Long time" and a couple walks past her, only to walk again past Stephen in the next shot.

Morbius picture

Plot hole: Vulture was able to re-create his suit despite the tech for it being confiscated when he was arrested. Also, the tech does not exist in the Venomverse, so he would have had no means of accessing it by any stretch of the imagination.

The Lost City picture

Continuity mistake: When Daniel Radcliffe presents a special item he has put on white gloves, then a second later his gloves disappear. He no longer handles the item with gloves throughout the rest of the movie.

Suggested correction: The gloves don't disappear "a second later" but 2.5 minutes later, after many shots where his hands and even he himself are offscreen. He could have taken the gloves off anytime.

Talk to Me picture Talk to Me mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Mia first does the ritual, you can see the boom mic on the bottom right corner. It hides in the dark corner, but if you look carefully, you can see it come in the shot. It's easier to, depending on how dark your screen is. (00:20:40)

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 picture

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the movie, after the baseball game they go to the blue Chevy truck. One scene shows the blue truck with wheels from a Toyota Tacoma, then seconds later shows a different set of wheels on it.
