Corrected entry: At the end, when Scully is talking to the board of FBI members, she is not wearing lipstick, a second later, when she meets Mulder on the bench, she is.
Corrected entry: How did Mulder find Scully out of all the thousands of bodies taken by the virus with the tanks frosted over too?
Corrected entry: After Mulder rescues Scully, he gives her his coat to wear as she is naked. When they come out of the cave, you can clearly see that Scully has white socks on. Where did they come from?
Corrected entry: In Antartica, the camera shows the snow cat. We can clearly see that there is no one driving it, but in the next shot, we see Mulder behind the wheel. (01:27:32)
Corrected entry: When Mulder and Scully are running around the southwest US, it's obvious that it's the middle of summer. When we see Mulder in Antarctica, (in the SOUTHERN hemisphere) the sun is out. If it IS mid-July or August, Antarctica should be in the middle of a LONG winter.
Corrected entry: Mulder is walking in Antarctica, where the average temperature is -100 degrees Fahrenheit, and all he is wearing is a fur coat and leather gloves...
Corrected entry: How did they get out of the Antarctic at the end if the snow cat Mulder drove was out of gas?
Corrected entry: At the end Scully is wet and half clothed in the Antarctica - wouldn't she die of hypothermia?
Corrected entry: During the film, the main characters figure out that the virus is transmitted via the bees, who get it from the corn. The problem is corn is wind pollinated, not insect pollinated. The reason they had a corn field is that they needed added suspense by having the main characters run through the field. (It would look silly running through a field of squash).
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, Mulder tries to get a soda from a vending machine that seems to be fully operational with the front panel lit up and everything, but when the machine doesn't work, he looks behind it to see that it is unplugged. If the machine was unplugged then the panel light would not be lit.
Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie, after Mulder rescues Scully from the spaceship, Mulder's artic cat had run out of gas, so how did Mulder and Scully get home from Antarctica, with no vehicle, and no one around to help them? (This is of particular interest because of an incident which occurs during an episode of the 8th season of the X-Files, entitled, "Alone." This episode aired a couple of years after the movie was released. In this episode, there is a character, Agent Harrison who appears in only 2 episodes of the show, the first of which is this episode. She is a fan of Mulder and Scully's and at the end of the episode she asks Mulder and Scully the very question that I ask above. Instead of answering this question which seemingly would not have an answer, Mulder and Scully argue about whether or not it was a spaceship and this is how the episode closes.)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Scully and Mulder chase the tankers, and go straight instead of left or right, Mulder asks how many times he's been wrong in the five years they've worked together. On the film, Scully says nothing (her lips don't move), but a voice that doesn't even sound like her says, "Never."
Corrected entry: You cannot vaccinate for a virus once you have it. With virus vaccinations, you are injected with a small amount of the virus and your body develops antibodies.
