Guardians of the Galaxy

Corrected entry: At the end Quill is standing in front of Ronan doing the dance off, but when he dives for the orb he's coming from Ronan's left with his right hand out. If he was in front of him he should have his left hand out and be diving to his left, not across Ronan.

Correction: Ronan had turned to look at Rocket and Drax and the hammer with the Stone in it was to his right. Quill jumped with his right hand out in order to block Ronan from grabbing it.

Corrected entry: When Peter catches the prison guard listening to his Sony Walkman, Peter tells him to take the headphones off and the guards taze him. Peter, referring to the song the guard is playing, then says "Hooked on a Feeling, Blue Swede, 1973. That song belongs to me." The Blue Swede version of "Hooked on a Feeling" was released in 1974, not 1973. (00:24:20)

Correction: He got the tape from his mother as a child decades ago. It's a minor and easily understandable mistake that anyone could make.

Corrected entry: Towards the end, while Star Lord is talking to Corpsman Dey before he gets his ship with the others, the sun changes between shots.


Correction: Xandar has three suns.


Corrected entry: During the opening credits when Peter Quill does a dance sequence in the temple on Morag, he grabs one of the lizards and uses it as a microphone. But when he comes across the skeleton and spins it with his right hand, the lizard is gone. The next shot shows him singing to the lizard again.

Correction: The scene in question is shown as an out-of-sequence montage/musical number. The shots aren't necessarily presented in chronological order. (Hence, why he goes from walking to sliding on a liquid slick between shots, why the lizard disappears and reappears between the sequence, why he goes from dancing to observing a skeletal mass between shots, etc.) Not a mistake.

Corrected entry: When Gamora is left floating in space and Peter Quill flies over to save her, his pod doesn't have any claws. When he exits his pod it has claws again. (01:06:15 - 01:06:50)


Correction: There is only one shot where there may be claws, however it is not possible to determine if it is claws or merely the debris in the area. All other shots show the pod with no claws.

Corrected entry: The "Infinity Stone" inside the orb is revealed as Tivan the "Collector" recounts its origin, before this moment no one knew the stone is inside the orb and no one can know afterwards, since Gamora sealed the orb. However during the pod pursuit Nebula says "The stone is in the furthest pod", the stone's existence is impossibly revealed. (01:02:00)


Correction: Nebula is a daughter of Thanos and she is probably well aware that he is looking for the Infinity Stones, even if Ronan is not aware.

Corrected entry: When Peter lunges for the Infinity Stone, he reaches out for and catches the stone with his right hand, yet for the rest of the scene, the stone is in his left hand.


Correction: When he is on the ground with the stone, he holds it with both hands, then transfers it to his left hand when he stands up.

Corrected entry: Drax is supposed to be a completely literal character. It is explicitly mentioned and played for laughs several times, he also tried to make a metaphor supposedly for the first time and it is called out. However, he speaks metaphorically twice: once when he refers to his enemies as "paper people" and when he refers to Gamora as a whore. The people he is fighting are not actually made of paper, and I doubt he believes Gamora is accepting money for sexual favors.

Correction: Using the word "like" or "as" would make something a simile, not a metaphor. For it to be a metaphor, Drax would have said something like "Their skin was paper." You know their skin isn't actually paper. And as for the Gamora/whore comment, Drax literally sees her as a whore. That wasn't a metaphor for anything at all.


Continuity mistake: When the Dark Aster enters the atmosphere at the end of the film, its wings untwist as it descends, in most of the scenes afterwards and the hologram the ship's wings are still twisted, then later during the battle they untwist again.
