Predator

Revealing mistake: When Bill Duke picks the scorpion off Carl Weathers' shoulder with a knife, you can blatantly see some gum or similar that's been used to stick the scorpion onto the tip of the knife. Even if it's meant to be Bill Duke's gum, it's not on the tip of the knife before he stabs it.

Suggested correction: It isn't gum, it's literally the scorpion's guts.

There are no guts in the scorpion's body, so it's obviously some material to stick scorpion to the tip of the knife, and it's blatantly visible in the close shot.

It's the abdominal fluid. It probably is gum in real life but if you kill an insect you will find it has a gum-like fluid in its abdomen.

Audio problem: When Anna hits Poncho and takes off running, Arnie "whistles" at Hawkins with his mouth closed and the camera is looking directly at him when it happens. (00:41:05)

Suggested correction: The whistle is a tongue whistle. The tongue is curved via the teeth and the lips need to be almost closed to make the air rush out in that manner. It's sharper than a regular whistle due to this.

Other mistake: When the Predator sees Billy on the log bridge, there is a cold blotch in the middle of Billy's chest. He's not wearing anything that would make such a hole in his heat signature - it should be the same color as the rest of his torso. It doesn't even match up with the cut he made across his chest; the cut starts much higher than the blotch and the blotch is irregularly shaped, not indicating the smooth line of a cut. (01:15:20)

Suggested correction: The cold area is the blood running from his wound. It is cooling down on contract with the air.

Character mistake: When Mac describes what he saw after Blaine was killed, he states that he "capped off 200 rounds with the minigun." At the rate the minigun fires, and the length of time Mac was shooting, he fired at least 10 times that amount. Perhaps he meant to say "capped off 2000 rounds." This adds to another mistake: the ammo pack Blaine carried only holds 500 rounds but much more than that is fired during the course of the film.

Suggested correction: He actually says "capped off 20 rounds, in the minigun...full pack" just the word spacing is a bit odd. 20 rounds refers to his normal gun which ran out of ammo quickly.

Revealing mistake: Mac and Dillon go after the Predator. The Predator is sitting in a tree, and Mac points him out to Dillon. They both agree that they see it and take position. Mac crawls underneath the alien and is killed by his laser. The Predator then sees Dillon and lasers his arm off. Dillon's arm falls to the ground with the gun firing. Quickly Dillon turns and reaches for the machine gun around his neck. When he turns you clearly see his bloody right stump and his right arm sticking out the bottom of his jacket. [Note: As far as I can work out, this has been cunningly edited out of the UK DVD version].

Trivia: Jesse Ventura was delighted to find out from the wardrobe department that his arms were 1" bigger than Arnold Schwarzenegger's. He suggested to Schwarzenegger that they measure arms, with the winner getting a bottle of champagne. Ventura lost because Schwarzenegger had told the wardrobe department to tell Ventura that his arms were bigger.

Question: What's up with the predator's eyes glowing for a second while it's invisible, and does anyone know why the predators in the other movies don't do this?

Answer: In the shots where we can see what the Predator sees, sometimes when he is focusing on someone or something, we hear a kind of flash noise as he zooms in on the object. When we see the Predator's eyes flashing/glowing, that is when he is zooming in on what he's looking at.

Answer: Its the old predator design. Look closely the optical silhouette, it doesn't match. Google early predator design.

Answer: They do add the flash eyes while cloaked effect in Alien vs Predator: Requiem and Predators. I think it's both when it uses zoom-in vision and maybe to intimidate by showing itself so close to its prey. "Those eyes, just appeared."

I think he did it to intimidate Mac and Dillion.
