Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Corrected entry: At the end of the movie Henry sees his father coming towards him with the Dutchman visible behind him. Its sails are completely down. The scene changes to Henry walking towards his father and then back to his father walking towards him. The Dutchman's sails are now secured up.


Correction: The first time Henry looks into his spyglass and spots the Dutchman we see many members of the Dutchman's crew aloft in the rigging lining the yards and furling its sails, and the second time Henry looks into the spyglass those sails are still being furled by the crew just as Will appears. Then five shots later, when Will joins Henry at the top of the hill we see the partially furled sails. No problem with continuity.

Corrected entry: In the movie Jack gets the compass from his former captain when he is dying in the battle with Salazar. In the second film we saw that Jack got the compass from Tia Dalma/Calypso.

Correction: At some point in time, Jack lost possession of the compass. He later bartered it back from Tia Dalma who'd acquired it.

Corrected entry: In this movie, it's established that Salazar is released because Jack gave away the compass. But in the second movie, he gave it to Will and Elizabeth, and in the third movie to Cutler Beckett. Wouldn't it have freed Salazar then too?


Correction: He'd only loaned its use previously, while maintaining ownership.

Corrected entry: The "Pirates of the Caribbean" films are set in the mid-1700s (http://pirates.wikia.com/wiki/Timeline_of_Pirates_of_the_Caribbean_series). A trouserless Jack Sparrow is asked by another man, "Where are your pants?" According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, "pants" as a shortened form of "pantaloons" did not enter our language until 1840.

Correction: It is a very common film convention to use modern language in place of old fashioned language so the audience understands it better.

Factual error: Jack Sparrow says he loves the French because "they invented mayonnaise." The film is set in the 1750s. The egg-based sauce known as mayonnaise was developed in the early 1800s. The Oxford English Dictionary says the word dates from 1815.
