Mistakes in cinema and rental titles

Black Widow picture

Factual error: Melina tells Natasha that the only way to get past Dreykov's pheromone block is to sever her olfactory nerve. So Natasha smacks her head on a table to sever it, hits Dreykov, then later pops her apparently broken nose back into place. Not only was her nose visibly not broken, but the olfactory nerve is a direct extension of the brain, with projections passing through a key bone in the skull. Severing that nerve would involve brain damage, and traumatic damage to those structures capable of this would require surgical repair.

Don't Look Up picture

Continuity mistake: Leonardo DiCaprio's phone is shown attached to his car dashboard. He gets out of his car, all the while, looking up toward the sky. The next scene shows him grabbing his phone from his pocket while standing outside his car. (01:36:06 - 01:36:56)

Fast & Furious 9 picture

Other mistake: Towards the end of the end credits there's a "Special thanks" sections, including sponsors such as Fiat Chrysler etc. The first person thanked is "Leslie Finaly", a banal misspelling of "Leslie Finlay." (02:22:30)

Ghostbusters: Afterlife picture

Deliberate mistake: When the kids are about to jump start the trap Phoebe hides behind the school bus door. Half a second later, when the trap opens, she's nowhere to be seen, not even jumping or stepping inside the bus. Then half a second later she has managed to get inside, turn around and protect her head while the bus windows burst, and yet a second after the havoc Podcast and her are already outside, watching the ghost fly away. It all happens in real time for their hairs are still fluttering. It sure paces up the scene, but it's really awkward.

Halloween Kills picture

Factual error: The morgue is located on the lowest floor of a hospital not on the patient rooms floor. And the blinds on the windows would certainly be closed. In this hospital they are open and people can see dead bodies. Never happen.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone pictureHarry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: During the Quidditch match Harry's broomstick tries to shake him off, due to the spell. After Hermione tells Ron, "Leave it to me," in Harry's last close-up before he flips over, the seat that is attached to the broomstick, to make it more comfortable for Dan Radcliffe to sit on, is entirely visible. Glimpses of other seats can be had during the match as well. (01:20:50)

The King's Man picture

Factual error: The Black Watch sergeant major wears a crown over three chevrons, which was the correct rank badge for a company sergeant major until 1915. However, this is at least 1916 (as conscription has started and the men are wearing steel helmets, both introduced in 1916). CSMs had been redesignated as warrant officers in 1915 and now wore a crown on the lower sleeves instead.

The Lost Daughter picture

Continuity mistake: Ed Harris plays a property manager character and is featured in the beginning of the movie, walking with a pronounced limp, a seemingly painful gait. His character is shown in many other nominal scenes throughout the movie without limping. Most notable, shortly before the end of the movie, his character is shown dancing wildly, spastically, and jumping to music, seemingly unencumbered and fluidly, in a way that his character in the first part of the movie would not have been capable of doing.

The Matrix Resurrections picture

Continuity mistake: During the musical montage when Neo sees again the birds fly in the same pattern, there's a bit when "Tiffany" gets her order from the counter and exits the coffee shop. Neo is eating from his poke bowl, chopsticks in his left hand. His right hand is flat on the table, but in the next shot we see him through the window, and his right hand is turned 90°. (00:26:25)

Continuity mistake: During the first fight between Mileena and Sonya, Mileena licks the blood off her weapon that she had stuck in Mileena's shoulder. Her ponytail is in front of her. In the next shot she it's at her back. (01:11:04)

No Time to Die picture

Continuity mistake: James Bond was wearing a black tie when he visited Vespa Lynd's grave. This was still evident when he knocked Cyclops off his motorbike in the following action sequence. During the fight as he grapples with Cyclops, not only is the tie missing but the top few buttons of his shirt become undone.

Suggested correction: He rips the tie off after he punches Primo. It's a blink or you'll miss it moment, but you can definitely see him do it in b-roll footage. It's been edited in the final version in such a way it isn't clear.

Old picture

Revealing mistake: The "Anamika Resort" van isn't quite in sync with the road it is supposed to be traveling on. A side view shows the van is traveling straight ahead, but a shift to a front view shows the road behind the van is curved to the right. The same thing happens a little later, except the road is curved to the left. (00:01:19)

A Quiet Place Part II picture

Revealing mistake: The "baby" looked quite "rubbery" at times and its limited movements (even motionless) and lack of sound are indicative of a "fake" baby (doll) most of the time. The baby was mostly kept covered in some kind of box and did not even cry when the mother was running with it (while in her arms or in the box). (00:14:35 - 00:20:30)

Spider-Man: No Way Home picture

Plot hole: The whole premise of the movie is that due to a botched spell, people who happen to know that "Peter Parker is Spider-Man" are pulled inside this universe. It's a bit of a stretch already that amongst those people is...Peter Parker himself, twice over, but let's say it makes sense. The problem is that Jamie Foxx's Electro does not meet this condition; he never found out. You could say it's a retcon or it's a different universe from the original movie's, but even this cop-out explanation is negated by the movie itself when Max Dillon makes a joke that shows that he didn't know Spidey's identity or even race.

Suggested correction: I don't find it such a stretch that he knew Peter's name but didn't know what he looked like.

Suggested correction: It's not people who know who is Spider-Man that are spilling in, it's people who are connected to him in any way.

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

West Side Story picture

Deliberate mistake: When the gangs meet in the toilets to set a date for the brawl, the mirror on the left is the only one opaque, most surely to avoid reflections of the filming crew.
