Top Gun: Maverick picture

Plot hole: Any strike on a military facility by incoming aircraft would first take out the SAM sites with missiles to clear the way for said aircraft to operate freely. After all, the Tomahawks fly right past the attacking planes and take out the runway with no issues at all - no reason they couldn't hit the high and exposed SAMs.

Thor: Love and Thunder picture

Continuity mistake: The snacks that Darcy drops on the table by Jane repeatedly change and rearrange themselves in subsequent shots.

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.

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.

Minions: The Rise of Gru picture

Factual error: The story is set in 1976. "Funkytown" is used in the movie and the end titles. The song was not released until 1980.

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.

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.

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)

Scream picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene outside the hospital, when Gale and Sidney try to make the protagonist reconsider her plan to leave, Courteney Cox's hair changes position in front of either shoulder several times between shots.

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.

Visible crew/equipment: During the flashmob, there are people walking toward the camera while dancing on the street. The shadow of the steadycam filming the scene is left of screen.

Suggested correction: I could not see Will's speedometer or tachometer (RPM gauge) during his drive to Frank's. What I did see (and believe you saw) was the patrol officer's instrument panel while he was parked along the road using radar. This was before he pulled out to chase Will's speeding SUV, so both gauges should have been on the far left (i.e, on "0"). [00:46:28].

Marry Me picture

Character mistake: After the math club students, in unison, cited pi to 3.141592, Percy continued with "65839" - but only the "65" are correct. He should have said "65358..." before being cut off (or "65359" if he was rounding up the last "89793238"). Even though the movie is classified as a comedy, Percy was showing off, but he was wrong. Charlie, Math Club Advisor, also committed a mistake because he stopped Percy by saying "Percy, we got it. Good" (as though Percy was correct). (00:04:29)

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).

Sniper: Rogue Mission picture

Factual error: Mary Jane said, "I spent seven days in a pitch-black shipping container with no food or water and nine other girls." A human can go 2-3 days without water, but not 7. (00:37:18)

Where the Crawdads Sing picture

Character mistake: Lawyer Tom was in the bar when locals were speculating that Kya killed Chase. He told Kya that people in Barkley Cove call her "Marsh Girl" and "When you stand trial, you will be judged by a jury of your peers from Barkley Cove." In the courtroom, people were shouting "She's guilty" and "We all know she's guilty." The judge pounded his gavel and said, "We will now begin jury selection." Tom and/or the judge should have filed a "Motion for Change of Venue" to ensure a fair and unbiased trial. (00:10:23 - 00:29:44)

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 picture

Other mistake: When Robotnick, Stone, and Knuckles are eavesdropping on Sonic and Donut Lord's text conversation, the third text is supposed to be from Sonic but it appears as Donut Lord's text, on the wrong side of the conversation. (00:40:00)

The Gray Man picture

Continuity mistake: As the "lone wolf" escapes on the bike, there's a fancy swooping camera shot which tracks him, cutting to a shot from the front just as he scythes between two dark cars and past a police car. In that quick shot a woman suddenly appears cowering by the police car who wasn't there before.
