Corrected entry: When Doc Ock attacks Peter in a cafe with MJ, he throws Peter at the wall. When Peter stands up of the wall and walks outside you can see everyone panicking and screaming. When Peter takes off his glasses and the glasses hit the floor, you can see in the background that everything is quiet and no-one is panicking as if nothing happened.
Corrected entry: When Peter makes his final pizza delivery before being sacked, the receptionist refuses to pay because he is late. The clock behind her states around 3.04. When Peter arrives back at the Pizza shop, the guy is firing him but the clock behind Peter reads 2.10, some 54 minutes before he is late delivering the pizza.tallbloke
Corrected entry: In the operating room scene the doctor is about to make his first incision in Doc Ock's body and examines the x-ray carefully, but not the patient. Doc Ock is not on a respirator (so he is not properly anesthetized) and also not even hooked up to an IV - although there is an IV bag and pole in the room.Sangie
Corrected entry: In the scene where Doc Ock holds Aunt May over the edge of a building and Spiderman gets ready to slingshot himself towards them, Doc Ock has a spike come out of one of his tentacles and hides it behind his back. The spike shouldn't be in there in the first place, since Doc Ock built the tentacles to control fusion reactions, not to kill people. Also, Spiderman's senses don't go off despite the fact that he is in danger.
Corrected entry: Spiderman has the task of stopping the speeding train that has no brakes. Well, he uses his spider senses to see down the rest of the track to see the drop off the end. Throughout the rest of the track, you can see there are no stops or stations, and it eventually comes to a dead end. So where is this train heading anyway?lildudealex
Corrected entry: Just before of the scene when Peter loses his $20 with Ditkovich, there is a shot of the building where Peter lives. Pay attention to the car going from right to left. When the car is about to disappear, you will see how the rest of the shot is a static image.
Corrected entry: Doc Ock's lab is first shown to be a regular building on a street, but it is later shown to be located on a dock.
Corrected entry: When Dr Octavius first meets Peter he says, "Intelligence is not a privilege - it's a gift to be used for the good of mankind." But in the scene towards the end of the movie where Doc Ock has realized that Spiderman is Peter Parker, Peter says, "You once spoke to me about intelligence, that it was a gift to be used for the good of mankind." Doc Ock nods his head and says, "A privilege." He's contradicting himself.
Corrected entry: In the new "2.1 extended edition" there is a scene where Spider-Man and Doc Ock are fighting on the side of the train and people on the loading platform have to scatter to avoid being hit. But if you pay attention, the train is on the opposite track that it is on in both previous and following shots.
Corrected entry: In the scene when Doc Ock picks up Spiderman's aunt in front of the bank, just before one of his arms grab her, one can see Spidey's aunt has already been lifted up.
Corrected entry: During the fusion process, all metal objects are drawn to the energy source, yet Octavius' wife's earrings aren't affected at all.
Corrected entry: The Spider-Man outfit that Peter throws in the trash appears to either have the head attached to the body or a very long neck on the mask. It hangs too far down over the edge of trash can to be the same, separate headpiece, with a short neck, that Jameson receives from the trash collector. (Though this may be a deliberate nod to the comic book, it is still a mistake.)
Corrected entry: Throughout the film you can see that Spiderman is hanging with his web from nothing, just from the sky. One really obvious is when you see him in the night, before he starts loosing his powers. He's not hanging from the buildings, but from the sky.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Mary Jane is performing in her play, and notices that Peter shows up, she says "Yes. I mean, no" when the other actresses asks about forgiving. The "I mean, no" part is actually in The Importance Of Being Earnest" (the play), even though it looks like Mary Jane was so annoyed with Peter that she messed up her line at first.
Corrected entry: After the German girl and Peter eat chocolate cake, and she gives him a message, when she says, "It's from your aunt," she has almost no accent in her voice.
Corrected entry: When Peter is delivering the pizzas to the receptionist, she can be seen sipping her drink through her straw. The straw can be seen in the container, but not in the liquid as she sips.
Corrected entry: When Aunt May and Peter are talking, while she is packing up her things in her backyard, the cream-colored Oldsmobile can be seen in the garage. This is the same car that was stolen and totalled by the thief that killed Uncle Ben in Spider-Man. Even if the smashed up hulk of the car was retained by May Parker, her financial situation would never have allowed her to get it restored/rebuilt to the condition it is in. And no insurance company would have come close to repairing a car of that vintage. The car should not be there.
Corrected entry: When getting dressed to go to M.J.'s play, there is a cute scene showing Peter staring into his closet, looking back and forth in the closet, trying to decide what to wear.A reverse angle of the closet's contents shows that there are only two items hanging there, the 'Spidey' suit, and Peter's one-and-only dress shirt/coat/ tie. The gag, of course, is that he is trying to decide what to wear, when it is obvious that he is going as a 'civilian', so he should wear the street clothes. However, after the play is over, Peter (who logically chose to wear his street clothes) is shown running down an alley, and he does the 'opening the shirt to reveal the 'Spidey' suit underneath' maneuver, and swings away on a web. Well.if he wears the costume underneath his street clothes most of the time, why was he looking in the closet trying to decide between the two of them when he knew he was going to be wearing them both?
Corrected entry: After Peter decides not to be Spider-man anymore, he's walking as a normal person, trips and falls. There are trees and a park bench in the surrounding area where he falls. Yet when he gets up, he is on a sidewalk in front of a building with no trees or park bench anywhere.
Corrected entry: The first movie established that Peter was mutated with spider DNA, that the changes in him were at a molecular level. Considering this, even a high level of stress should not be able to reverse a change that was imprinted in is own DNA marking. We're not talking insomnia or losing balance here (which *can* be caused by stress): saying that he lost his eyesight, his little grabbing hairs and his web-making capacities is like saying that because I'm stressed, my eyes will change colors, my arms will fall off or I'll stop salivating. All at once. Just not possible.Sereenie
Corrected entry: In the scene where Harry is introducing Peter to Dr. Otto, he says 'Noble Prize for sure' and a few seconds later ' See you in Sweden'. The noble prizes are given out in Oslo, Norway.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Mary Jane is acting in the theater, she notices an empty seat, and automatically knows that Peter did not come to see her. She was surprised when Peter told her he was coming to the play, so he's not using a ticket/seat she's got for him - she would have had to look at every seat and audience member to know for sure.
Corrected entry: When Doc Ock's mechanical arms attack the doctors and one of them grabs a nurse's ankle and drag her away, her fingernails scratch the floor. Nails only have a hardness of 2 and the tiles on the floor would have a hardness of at least 6, so the nails wouldn't leave any marks.
Corrected entry: Doc Ock's robotic arms are obviously very powerful, being able to lift people, cars, etc. Yet they have no visible power source, nor do they ever run out of energy. In reality, he would need to either wear enormous battery packs or have a really long extension cord. This would also provide him an easy way to escape from their influence - simply stop recharging them.
Corrected entry: In the scene at the end where Spider-Man and Mary Jane are in the big web, check out the bit of web visible between their faces in shots of both of them - it's clear to see the web is just black wire with a thin bit of translucent plastic loosely wrapped around it - shatters the image somewhat.
Corrected entry: When Peter and MJ stand up right after the car has been thrown at them, the restaurant behind them is totally empty, even though when they were talking there were people in it. After a few shots, the restaurant is full of people again.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Spider-Man is fighting Doc Ock, the train they are riding on has no letter or number on the front. ALL of the MTA NYC Transit Subways have letters or numbers on them, indicating where they are going (ie. F, G, 1, 2, etc.). The train Spider-Man and Doc Ock were fighting on did not.
Corrected entry: Why would Octavius install ropes inside his tentacles? He designed them to control fusion reactions, not kidnap people. He didn't know that he was going to go crazy, so there would be no reason to have them.
Corrected entry: In the scene when Peter is in the burning building, and is trying to get out, three big chunks of the floor collapse. Before they do, you can see lines pre-cut in the floor so it breaks the way it does.
Corrected entry: In one shot, the car was so low that it barely missed Peter's head. Then in the following shot, it flew over the counter top of the deli and came to a stop against the wall. Had the car been as low as it was in the first shot, it would have crashed into the counter instead.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the train sequence, before Spiderman gets his mask back, you can see that in a wide shot his mask has suddenly reappeared on his head, then disappears in the next shot.
Corrected entry: In the scene where John Jameson is walking down the stairs at the celebration party. The camera pans over the musicians and shows John Jameson and Mary Jane walking down the stairs as patriotic music is being played by the musicians. When the camera pans over the musicians, we can hear that the sax player is playing, even though we see that the sax player is just holding the sax, not playing it.
Corrected entry: During Doc Ock's first fusion presentation, he has decided not to thoroughly pre-test the experiment, not provide eye protection for his guests, not provide any barrier between his guests and a fusion reactor, not provide an easy to find "kill switch" (pulling out bundles of unwieldy cables is not an easy disconnect), not have a back-up set of arms, to test in a room full of metal objects (we know that magnetism is a problem; he mentions that the arms must be resistant to magnetism), and to test an experimental fusion reactor in an unshielded apartment building in the middle of crowded New York City. It is possibly the worst planned experiment ever. This goes way beyond being "assured that everything will go as planned."
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film, when Peter Parker is late delivering the Pizzas, but right before he changes into Spider-Man, he gets caught at a light changing from green to red, and right after this change a city bus goes speeding by. If the light just changed, how could the bus be going that fast when the light just changed?Peter Vanicelli
Corrected entry: After he's unmasked by Harry, Peter asks for the location of Doc Ock's lair so he can rescue MJ. How would Harry know it was an abandoned warehouse on the river? His exchange with Doc Ock a few scenes earlier never mentioned it.
Corrected entry: When Peter Parker arrives at work to deliver the pizzas he is told that he must go 42 blocks in 8 minutes. 42 blocks is enough distance to go from on end of most large cities to the other end. A New York block would be even larger. The pizza place's guarantee was 29 minutes or free. There is no way a company in New York would be able to make and deliver 8 pizzas 42 blocks away in that amount of time. There are a million pizza stores in New York so why would someone order from one so far away and what kind of pizza store would take that order and guarantee it?
Corrected entry: After the car crashes into the deli, Peter and MJ stand up and look out, but Doc Ock is nowhere in sight. After the shot changes a couple of times, people at the far corner of the street start screaming and running. How did Doc Ock manage to throw a car round a corner? Furthermore, considering the flight path of the car, it certainly was not thrown from far away so Doc Ock should have been within sight.
Corrected entry: On his way to the play, just after Peter picks up the carnations there is a scene of him driving on the left side of the street, the wrong side of the street. It then cuts to a scene of the criminal's car coming up behind him and he is on the right side, the correct side, of the street.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Mary Jane is being saved by Peter from the taxi that has been thrown through the cafe window it is very obvious that her hair is defying the laws of physics. It is traveling in the direction she is spinning which, even if the car was causing wind, it most certainly wouldn't be spinning. It would either be trailing behind her or being blown in front of her from the wind of the car. It is moving as though it were being blown that direction by a fan or something.
Corrected entry: In the scene with Peter and Mary Jane in the cafe before Doc Ock arrives, the street scene outside is a video loop. Some of the same events happen twice or more, spread over a few minutes.
Corrected entry: Just after Peter decides not to be Spider-man anymore, he is seen walking down the street without his glasses. He trips and falls three times, apparently because he can't see properly without them. The first time he stands up, you can see his right hand reaching for the glasses on his belt loop. He never takes the glasses, nor does he put them on, he just reaches for them and grabs them. The second time he stands up, neither hand reaches for the glasses. But the third time, he reaches for and grabs the glasses again. you can see that it's the same exact bit of footage as used for the first time. Then finally he puts them on.
Corrected entry: Unlike the Green Goblin in the first movie, Doctor Octopus does not have superhuman strength. He should not be able to handle the amount of hits that Spiderman (who is incredibly strong) lands, especially the ones to the head. Even if Spiderman was holding back a little for some reason, Doc Oc wouldn't be able to take that much of a beating.Rosco
Corrected entry: Harry walks into the Goblin room and is startled by the Goblin mask his father wore. We are made to believe it is at the level of Harry's face. Yet as Harry backpedals, he never steps down from a platform and bumps into the pumpkin bombs as he notices the glider on an elevated platform. At that time, the camera pans out and you see Harry in the same spot looking at the glider and the mask is at waist level.bluedrop90
Corrected entry: In the scene immediately after Peter decides he's not going to be Spider-man anymore, he stops to buy a hot dog from a street vendor. As he walks away from the vendor's stand, he lowers the hot dog out of the frame while he watches the cop cars go wailing by. When he raises his hand back into the frame and takes a bite of the hot dog, you can see that there is no longer a hot dog in the bun. Nothing to do with Tobey Maguire being a vegetarian, as the sausage was tofu anyway.
Corrected entry: In the bank scene, when Doc Ock throws the vault door at Peter and Aunt May and they slide to either side of it, you can see the cables under Peter's chair used to pull it.
Corrected entry: Tritium is an isotope of hydrogen, both are invisible gasses, so the glass spheres Octavius uses to contain it should appear empty, not filled with gold-colored metal.
Corrected entry: In the scene at the laundry mat where he is washing his spidey suit, it shows that the colors bled on to his boxers and socks. You would think after two years of washing his suit that he would have figured out that it could bleed on to his other clothes. And furthermore, the suit would have faded enough that it wouldn't bleed anymore.
Corrected entry: In the scene where we have the first fusion reactor, we notice that everything begins to be drawn into the reaction, including a paper clip from far away. When it shows Doc Ock's wife, she is very close to the reactor and you can see that she has metal earrings dangling from her ears. First, they are not even being drawn into the reactor when everything else is, including huge metal objects. Second, she has a metal wrist watch that is seemingly not affected by the magnetism.
Corrected entry: Doc Ock creates 4 super smart tentacles that hook into his cerebellum (which controls voluntary muscles and maintains posture and balance) essentially making the 4 tentacles seem as if they were 4 extra true arms. This begs the questions: Why would he need these arms to be super smart? And if he makes them super smart why would he install an inhibitor chip in order to shut down the tentacles' "brains" and reduce them to normal arms?
Corrected entry: After Spider-man saves Aunt May from Doc Ock, you see Doc Ock climbing round the corner of the building, holding Aunt May's coat in one of his metal arms, but seconds later, when Spider-man is getting Aunt May to safety, she is miraculously wearing her coat again.
Corrected entry: In the scene when the bank robbery takes place, Aunt May drops her umbrella, then she has it when she's going up with Doc Ock; than she drops it again, and yet she still has it to hit Doc Ock in the head.
Corrected entry: Nobody would dare to cut a metal piece with a saw without eye protection, much less in a surgical room, like the surgeon that first wanted to remove Doc Ock's tentacles. This is before they started attacking, so there was no rush.
Corrected entry: When Doc Ock first grabs Aunt May the rope that will pull her out of the shot is visible around her waist before the CGI tentacle covers it.
Corrected entry: When Dr. Octavius first attaches the mechanical arms to his body, he turns to the audience in his lab and lets the harness click around his waist, then the long spinal-control thing attach to his back. Needles which interface with his nervous system sink into his flesh, which is gross for the audience to watch, because they all flinch and/or groan in disgust. However, as he was facing them, and thus they couldn't SEE those needles, what were they disturbed about? Also, there's no way the tentacles' cameras could have shown it on the TV screens nearby - they were not activated yet.redbaron2000
Corrected entry: After Peter has bought down Doc Ock in his warehouse, he brings him to his senses by reminding him that he once told Peter "intelligence is a privilege, not a gift", and Doc Ock agrees. However, at the start of the film the Doctor actually said intelligence was a gift, not a privilege.
Corrected entry: In the bank Doc Ock throws around huge bags of gold bullion coins. There is no way a modern bank (or anyone else) would store gold bullion coins in bags.
Corrected entry: There's no reason for Spiderman to take his mask off when he approaches Doctor Octopus at the end. If Octopus was "normal" again, and in control of the tentacles, Spiderman had the same chance of convincing him as Peter did. Why risk revealing his secret identity to an enemy?
Corrected entry: In the diner, Doc Ock tells Peter to have Spider-Man meet him at 3:00 at the West Tower. So it is between 3-3:30 when Ock captures Spider-Man on the train. He doesn't deliver him to Harry until it is night. Considering he was in a rush to get the tritium, he waited an awfully long time to deliver him.
Corrected entry: In the scene where M.J. gets into the taxi (on the evening Peter comes to the theater), you can see other people leaving the taxi with there luggage on the other side. After a cut on Peter Parker the doors of the taxi on the other side are closed, and no one to be seen near the taxi. There is not enough time that they get so far with their luggage.
Corrected entry: Before Peter tries climbing up the wall after his webs fail, he takes his mask off, which comes back on as he is climbing the wall and disappears again as he falls and lands.
Corrected entry: When Peter and Mary Jane are together in his apartment at the end of the film, the collar of Peter's t-shirt keeps changing positions underneath his sweater. Sometimes it is fully visible all the way around, sometimes it's higher on the left or right side, and during the closer shots it isn't visible at all.
Corrected entry: When Peter discovers that he'll never be able to deliver the pizzas on time by way of his scooter, he disappears into an alley and re-appears as Spider-man, and swings away, carrying only the pizzas with him. When he emerges from the maintenance closet of the building where the pizzas were to be taken, he's wearing his regular clothes... how did he get those clothes back when he apparently left them in the alley?
Corrected entry: After Doc Ock wakes back up and goes after everyone in the hospital, he then goes back to where the fusion experiment first took place, and begins working on it again. The people know who is responsible for the attack in the hospital, and yet no police go to where the experiment took place, which would more than likely be the first place the police would check out, since he escaped the hospital. If they had, they would've apprehended him.
Corrected entry: When in the beginning of the movie Peter Parker is delivering eight pizzas to an office, he stumbles out of a janitor's closet. You can see the stack of pizzas standing inside the closet. In the next shot, Peter pushes back the brooms and closes the door, but without removing the pizzas. Still, in the following shot, he picks up the pizzas which have now miraculously moved outside the closet.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the fusion test goes wrong and the magnetism becomes very strong, you can see that there is a computer very close to the source of the magnetism, yet the computers are not affected in any way. A computer would be very screwed up by that level of magnetism.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Peter Parker is at class in college, his professor asks for eigenvalues. Peter promptly answers in electron volts. Eigenvalues deal with linear algebra and matrices, and have no units. An electron volt is an energy unit, particularly for atomic and nuclear processes.
Corrected entry: The first time Aunt May and Peter see each other after May nearly dies at the expense of Doc Ock, she does not even mention anything about her near-death experience to him. Because as far as she knows, Peter is not Spiderman. Don't you think if you fell from a very tall building to your near death twice you would tell your closest relative?Josh Appelbaum
Corrected entry: After Peter talks to Mary Jane outside the fancy club, she brushes him off and he picks up a glass. He discovers it's empty and drops it, but you never hear the sound of it dropping.
Corrected entry: Throughout the entire movie, when Doc Ock moves around with his tentacles, it's always in very quick movements, with his tentacles pounding into the ground with "boom, boom, boom, boom..." However, whenever someone actually hears Ock coming, (i.e. Harry on the balcony, the woman in the office, or Peter and Mary Jane in the deli) we can hear very long, three to four-second pauses in between the impacts of his extra arms.DenizenZERO
Corrected entry: When Spider-man is in the alley and is having trouble with his powers, he is climbing the wall without his mask on, yet when he falls and lands by the dumpster, you can briefly see that he now has on his mask. The next shot, he doesn't have it on again.
Corrected entry: Doc Ock pulls the giant sun ball and its support down onto himself, so he should be under it as they descend, yet in the final shot of him sinking into the ocean, the ball is below him and he is falling after it.
Corrected entry: In the party scene at the space library, Harry Osbourne is sitting at the bar getting drunk. He knocks his glass to the ground to drink from the bottle. After talking with Peter, he goes back to drinking, but now it's from a glass again.
Corrected entry: After Peter changes into Spider-Man to deliver the pizzas and throws them onto the ledge to save the two children, the camera goes back to show the pizzas and the man living there finding them. There are only seven pizza boxes, without any damage done to them. When he actually delivers them, there are eight and a couple of them are now flattened or banged-up as they should be.bluedrop90
Corrected entry: When Harry walks into his father's secret room, he sees the glider and the goblin suit. However, when Spider-Man drops of the Green Goblin after he is killed in the first movie, he only brought Norman's body back. How did the suit, mask, and glider get back to the secret room, considering there was only one costume and one glider?
Corrected entry: When in the operating room, the lead doctor mentions something about the C17 vertebra. There are only seven cervical vertebrae in the human body. Also, he says something to the effect of performing a cervical-lumbar fusion, a procedure impossible because of the dozen thoracic vertebrae in between.
Corrected entry: When Peter is slammed up against a wall and covered in rubble by Doc Ock, he bursts through and his glasses are not even scratched. Then, he drops them in the street from about three feet up and the lens falls out.
Corrected entry: When Peter and Aunt May are sitting in front of the bank worker's desk, they appear to be right next to a low wooden partition, with no way that Peter and May's chairs could move too far apart from each other. However, when Doc Ock comes to rob the bank and a hunk of debris falls towards Peter and May, there is suddenly plenty of space for Peter to kick May's chair and slide her out of harm's way.
Corrected entry: Rosie is killed when a flying piece of glass hits her in the face. Later on when you see her on the stretcher, you can see both sides of her face for a moment, and there is no blood or any type of cut on her face.
Corrected entry: When on the elevated train, Spider-man gets his right goggle-eye thing burned, and he tears it off in frustration and tosses it away. Later on, after successfully stopping the train (pretty far away from the point where he threw off his mask, mind you), two children bring his mask back to him. He threw it away earlier, and there was no way any normal human could've gotten the mask and brought it back to him in the situation he was in.
Corrected entry: During the first fusion experiment when all the metal is being attracted to the tritium, Octavius's wife has several pieces of metallic jewellery that are not behaving the same way.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the car comes crashing through the window, when Peter picks up Mary-Jane, her back hits her chair, causing it to fall. But in the next shot, her chair is sitting fine, on all four legs.
Corrected entry: Window in Peter's apartment at the end has a red and blue segment, something which wasn't present earlier: a symbol that Peter has accepted who he is.
Corrected entry: Right after the scene where Mary Jane is kissing her boyfriend upside down on the couch, there is a quick shot of a city block, that is shown backwards. This can be detected from the vertical "park" sign that has the letters reversed.
