Captain Marvel

Other mistake: Vers saves Fury, blowing a hole in the ceiling and somehow getting to the upper floor (why she does not blast holes for the remaining floors as well is unclear). They should be then at -4 from the -5 they were in, but they are shown ascending a flight of stairs, at the top of which Coulson lets them enter the door for level -4.

Other mistake: When Vers is using the payphone across from Blockbuster, the phone says it costs 25 cents for a call, but down below there is a big notice on the phone saying effective Nov. 1, 1995 the rate is going up to 25 cents. Trouble is it is June 1995, still five months before the rate change, and yet it already costs 25 cents. (00:25:40)


Other mistake: One blast of the stun weapon by the Skrulls is all it takes to KO Carol long enough to be kidnapped, taken aboard the ship and brain probed, but in the fight scene that ensues she gets hit multiple times and just shrugs it off like it's nothing.

Other mistake: Motorcycle guy rides up and you see the right side of the motorcycle. When he has left she looks at the motorcycle from the left side but what we see is actually the right side reversed and shown as the left side.

Other mistake: Vers enters the second escape pod. She crash lands on Earth, inside Blockbuster, at night. Somehow, the 4 Skrulls are shown later in the movie as landing together, and in broad daylight. That's nonsensical, considering Vers left behind an exploding ship, so they all left together. And one left even before she did (first escape pod). (00:23:10 - 00:25:00)

Other mistake: It's a common narrative device, but through the black box recording, Vers/Carol "remembers" things that extend past the point when she was knocked out unconscious. The black box can't have recorded Yon-Rogg and Minn-erva's conversation after a crash and an explosion of a device that disrupts electronics, or SHIELD would have known everything about the aliens already in 1989.

Other mistake: One already wonders how fast can SHIELD possibly get to the facility itself once Fury pages them, but when Fury and Vers get into the archive, the clock shows it's 2 PM. After a few minutes browsing, he gets a message on his pager from Keller simply saying the message has been received. He leaves 'for a minute' apparently to go greet them (already?) and comes back; when he walks into the archive the clock shows it's 3 PM. (00:46:15 - 00:51:00)

Factual error: Carol Danvers' name appears on her dog tags as "Carol Danvers," but US military dog tags list the surname first, then given name. E.g. "Danvers, Carol."

Trivia: In the Blockbuster, Danvers blasts a standee of True Lies. The directors' first choice of standee was actually The Mask (which makes sense, being a green-skinned character who she'd rightly think was a Skrull and attack), but New Line Cinema refused to allow it.
