Stargate

Other mistake: When Jackson and O'Neil are captured and taken before Ra, the guards hit their knees with their staff weapons to make them kneel. Jackson's guard does it right, but O'Neil's misses him completely.

Other mistake: When the team are headed to Ra's pyramid dressed like Egyptians, the door starts to close with about half a metre left. After another shot elsewhere, when it faces the door again it has more than half a metre until it hits the ground.

Other mistake: When the ship lands atop the pyramid and begins to retract and open the topmost sections of the pyramid retract into the lower parts however the upper parts are too long to fit into them. In the next sequence we see the ship and the upper parts are nowhere to be seen.

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

Suggested correction: Perhaps the parts fold further in on themselves. Like a retractable ladder.

Trivia: The producers, the casting agents, really wanted Jaye Davidson, from "The Crying Game", to play the head bad guy, but Jaye said, "No more movies", so they kept upping the money they would pay him - this is before actors nowadays get phenomenal money - and it was only when they got to a million dollars that he said yes.

Question: Why would Ra be afraid of an uprising? He's got alien technology that he can fire at the people to keep them in line. Even if the people knew the truth, he could still use what he had to make sure everyone never opposed him, considering they had no technology to defend themselves.

Answer: A human uprising forced Ra to leave Earth thousands of years ago. He likely fears a second one could actually destroy him.
