Corrected entry: After Traxler and Yukovich phone Sarah's apartment, there is no answer. A few seconds after this, Traxler looks at his watch and states to Yukovich he is going to make a statement. As he says this, nothing is around his head. In the next shot, a cloud of smoke has suddenly appeared. (00:26:30)Casual Person
New this month Corrected entry: During the final car chase the Terminator shoots at Sarah and Reese with a nickel S&W Model 15. We never see him obtain this revolver, the only weaponry we see him acquire is the AR-15, .45 longslide, SPAS 12, and Uzi 9mm but he never asked for the nickel S&W at the gun shop.Joey221995
Corrected entry: When the semi truck hits the parked blue AMC Gremlin car, the force of the crash switches the lights off, but when the truck is then blown up, the lights are back on again. (01:28:50)
Corrected entry: After Reese rams the Terminator with the pick-up truck, the truck starts to back up out of the motel. The Terminator gets up and runs after it. Just before the shot changes, you can see that the truck still hasn't left yet. But when we cut to the Terminator getting on his motorcycle, the truck has disappeared. Considering that Sarah and Reese are in a huge pick-up truck, it is highly unlikely that they could have traveled that far in a short period of time. (01:23:55)
Corrected entry: When the Terminator is killing Sarah Connor's roommate and boyfriend, the sound of the phone being knocked around, enough to be off the hook, is heard. Shortly after the killings, a call (from Sarah herself) comes in and the phone rings until the machine picks up. (00:31:40)
Corrected entry: Sarah gives the Terminator (thinking it's her mother) a 408 area code for the Tiki Motel. At the time of the film's setting, the 408 serviced Monterey Bay all the way up to San Jose, meaning Sarah and Kyle would have been hundreds of miles away from the Terminator.
Corrected entry: You can see a stage light resting in the background when Reese is crouching in the alley after arriving from the future. (00:07:05)
Corrected entry: After the Terminator is destroyed, Sarah Connor is loaded into the ambulance feet-first. In real ambulances, the patient's head is closest to the front, not the back. (01:40:00)
Corrected entry: Watch the third 'future flashback' sequence carefully, particularly any shots that show Kyle charging towards the Terminator firing that oversized plasma weapon. There are at least two instances where you can see plasma bolts going straight through Kyle's body and impacting behind him. (01:12:45)
Corrected entry: When Sarah calls Ginger and gets the machine (as Ginger is being killed), he machine starts playing the message immediately after the first ring - before the phone bell even stops ringing. Since the machine is mechanical (before digital technology), it is unlikely that the machine could have reacted that fast. These types of machines would typically ring 2-3 times, then answer and take a message, then the next call would be picked up after just one ring - but not as fast as this one does.

Corrected entry: When the Terminator murders Ginger, it is supposed to be night time, but sunlight is reflecting off the apartment walls. (00:31:45)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Arnold is going to drive the truck, his eyes point in different directions. However, when he gets up as a cyborg while the truck is burning up (and in rest of the film), he can move both eyes in the same direction. (01:27:25 - 01:31:05)
Corrected entry: Early in the film, when Kyle first arrives in 1984, he steals a homeless man's pants and cops chase after him for it. It is very unlikely that police would chase after a man with that kind of intensity simply for taking a homeless man's pants. The cops would have bigger priorities than that.calidude
Corrected entry: Sarah Connor's time card at the restaurant gives her last name as Sarah ConnEr, with an E.
Corrected entry: At the end of the film, how does Sarah know which button (she skips the first two, by feel no less) will crush the terminator? She works at a restaurant, not the automated factory. Not to mention knowing that the controls for the machine are located behind her.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie after Kyle hot wires the car, when he follows Sarah out of the car park, he starts the car up again. There is no easy way to stop the engine after hot wiring. If he did stop the engine, he would have had to re-hot wire the car when he follows her.
Corrected entry: Pay close attention to the scene at the TechNoir club. Right as Reese sees what is about to go down when the Terminator approaches Sara with his gun, Reese pulls his shotgun. At this exact moment, Reese turns and cocks his shotgun and a club patron (movie extra with a pink-ish shirt) walks right in front of Reese and looks at him nonchalantly as Reese cocks the gun, as if nothing is out of the ordinary, and continues on walking. This seems odd, most people would have been shocked or jumpy if they suddenly saw somebody pull out, then cock, a shotgun.
Corrected entry: In the first flashback scene, Reese is walking through the tunnels, it shows a mother and daughter watching TV made of a fire. But the housing is plastic and shows no signs of melting.
