Mistakes in cinema and rental titles

Avengers: Infinity War picture

Continuity mistake: In Guardians of the Galaxy, Gamora's backstory is that she is the only one of her kind left. But here we're told Thanos killed half her planet and kidnapped her, meaning half of her people are still alive. He even says "the children born have known nothing but full bellies and clear skies. [Zen-Whoberi] is a paradise."

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them picture

Factual error: At one point, Newt Scamander says he found one of his beasts in Equatorial Guinea. That country only got that name after independence from Spain in 1968; back in 1926, when the movie is set, the place was known as Spanish Guinea.

The Greatest Showman pictureThe Greatest Showman mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Barnum goes to see Charity by the beach at the end of the film, they embrace. As the camera shows a close up of their faces Charity's head is on Barnum's right shoulder, but when they reverse the shot to show her expression she is now on his left shoulder. (01:30:10)

Halloween picture

New this month Audio problem: At the babysitter house, her boyfriend Dave goes out and finds a motorcycle in the garage to the side of the house. He goes in and starts it, revving up the engine loudly. Several shots while he's doing this show the babysitter and the boy sitting in the boy's room reading and they are unable to hear the motorcycle that's blasting its engines loudly. However, moments later when Michael stabs her in that room and she screams, he is able to hear her scream through the house, through the closed front doors, through the yard and into the garage where he was trying to pick the motor cycle back up. How was he able to hear her scream through all that but they couldn't hear the bike which was considerably louder?

Johnny English Strikes Again picture

New this month Plot hole: The idea of using the Aston Martin instead of the hybrid cars is because of the low technology in case the villain used a cyber attack against the car, only problem is the Aston Martin is packed with gadgets using high technology so using that is pointless.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom picture

Continuity mistake: When Franklin and Claire are trying to escape the Baryonyx, they use a chair to climb onto the ladder. When the ladder falls, however, the chair is gone.

Ocean's Eight picture

Factual error: Rhianna is watching a live feed of a man's office via webcam. We see a closeup of the screen. At the top it shows the filename being a ".jpeg." Jpegs are still image files, not movies, let alone live streams.

Continuity mistake: Leonardo is dangling from the railing of his yacht as the yacht travels at a high speed. In the next scene, looking out from a room with a large window, Leonardo can be seen still clinging to the railing but the yacht now appears to be motionless.

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.

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.

Rampage picture Video

Other mistake: Davis tells Kate to go and she jumps out of the falling plane, her chute opening. Davis then takes a minute to free Harvey from the plane as it's still falling before they both get out. Once they are free falling he takes a few seconds before he pulls their chutes as well. However as they are coming down close to the plane crash site, Kate is near level with them in altitude as they are all coming down together. With how high she was when she jumped out compared to the time it took for Davis and Harvey to get out of the plane and open their chutes, she would have been several minutes behind them in the sky, not right next to them. (00:47:45 - 00:49:05)

Ready Player One picture

Factual error: The third key Easter egg was actually a color-changing flashing pixel in the Atari Adventure game. You had to grab the purple bridge (they looked like outward facing brackets) and go into a box in the lower left corner of the blue maze and move along the bottom left corner. In the movie, it was picked up in the invisible maze. The wall you walk through then flashes along with the pixel, and you may move through it as shown in the movie to see the author's name.

Solo: A Star Wars Story picture

Other mistake: Towards the end, Chewbacca and Beckett have walked some distance from the landed yacht. They come up a small slope and are faced with Han, waiting for them. But an aerial shot shows that slope is very short and just runs down to a cliff. There's no way they could have got to the base of the slope to walk up it in the first place.

A Star Is Born picture

Factual error: Towards the end of the movie when Ally is in her hallway looking at Jack's old concert tour posters hanging on the wall, the poster closest to the camera says "Washington State Fair" and a 2011 date. Unfortunately, that fair did not get that name until 2013. Before that, it was called "The Puyallup Fair" (officially named the "Western Washington Fair"). Locals still call it "The Puyallup Fair" to this day.

Venom picture

Plot hole: At the angle of decent and the speed it was traveling (still burning from reentry even), when the space shuttle crashed in the opening of the film, it would not have left much of anything behind. The kinetic explosion that would have resulted would have downed the forest around it for a good distance leaving a crater, and the clean up crews would have been lucky to find any piece of the ship itself still intact bigger than a football. Much less been able to find any discernible remains of the crew. Yet bodies were being taken out in still relatively good condition. And probably most unbelievable is that the glass containers holding the Symbiotes were not even broken.

Suggested correction: Since this is in the Marvel universe the capsule could have at least partially been made of Vibranium or Adamantium.
