Mistakes in cinema and rental titles

Barbie picture

Factual error: Gloria's vehicle is a Chevrolet Blazer SS EV, but during the chase scene, her supposedly electric vehicle makes sounds like a normal gas engine.

Dune picture

Other mistake: When the injured woman put her bloody right hand over Leto's left shoulder, her fingers were initially curved around his shoulder then slid down. The bloody handprint (too "neat") ended up being lower on his shirt/lapel than would be expected and there was no blood on top of his shoulder or smear downward, which would be impossible. (01:18:00)

Elf picture

Other mistake: When Buddy's brother is reading Santa's list he reads the newscaster's wish he looks and mutters something about letters meaning they were in alphabetical order. However when he is saying random names he does not turn the page and the names are not in alphabetical order. (01:23:00)

Suggested correction: After he says each name, it cuts to that person and their reaction. Most of which was done without going back to Michael. Therefore, we can't say he didn't turn the pages.

Continuity mistake: When the Mafia boss dies, he falls next to a fruit stall. A crate falls next to his head, and fruit falls on the floor. When the shot changes, the crate has moved away, and the fruit has vanished.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire picture

Factual error: During the scene inside the submarine, you see a Commander (O5) giving orders to a captain (O6). This would never be a thing on any vessel. You would have a Commander as a Commanding Officer on a submarine, but not having a Captain working for the Commander.

The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes picture

Continuity mistake: When Coriolanus and Sejanus are eating lunch at the Academy, Coriolanus' sandwiches switch positions several times, stacking and unstacking, and turning several times.

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes picture

Plot hole: The movie, by various accounts, takes place 300 years after the apes took over and humans were rendered "dumb" (both literally and in the (non-PC), mute meaning of the word) or went underground. But yet they're making contact with a communication satellite. Satellites don't function for 300 years; they require occasional course corrections to keep from entering the atmosphere and burning up. Course corrections require propellant. The propellant wouldn't last 300 years. And the electronics.

Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning picture

Factual error: Gabriel kills the engineer and sets the train to full speed, then locks the control room. Without the engine being resupplied with coal it would lose power and stop before too long, never getting as far as the bridge.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: It is known for firemen to fill the loco up to allow it to run for 15-20 minutes without new coal. However, it could not run that long at that speed without the boiler being refilled with water, so the boiler would have exploded well before the fire reduced.

Oppenheimer picture

Factual error: When Oppenheimer delivers his lecture in "Dutch" he's actually speaking German. Although in the German dubbed version, the language heard is Dutch.

The Ritual Killer picture

Continuity mistake: At the bar, the amount of beer in Maria's "Corona Extra" bottle varies from at the neckline, to below, to above. After she takes a swig, it is still at the neckline; then it is about 1/2" above the neckline. (00:25:50 - 00:26:44)

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace picture

Continuity mistake: During the podrace, Anakin is in front of Sebulba and has him on his tail. One view looking towards Anakin you can see Sebulba's pod in the background, but the driver's seat is empty. (01:04:10)

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.
