Armageddon (1998)

Corrected entry: When the crews board the shuttles, it is daylight, but when they are about to take off it is dark. Seeing as Truman told them they would be taking off at 8 am, it doesn't really make sense that it should be dark.


Correction: When Truman is explaining the mission (during which he describes the "Roadrunner Thrust Maneuver") he states that they will be taking off at 6:30 p.m. Depending on what time of the year it is, it could be dark at the launch.

The Office (2001)

Downsize - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When David and Dawn are talking at the reception desk, you can see Gareth and Tim talking in the background. Yet a few shots later, Gareth is arriving at work for the first time carrying his suitcase and newspaper.


Correction: The show is supposed to be a documentary. The shot in which David explains that he has worked at Wernham Hogg for 8 years then introduces Dawn to the crew/ audience, would probably be used before a shot introducing two new characters the audience hadn't 'met' yet. This can be put down to an editorial decision by the (fictional) documentary makers, not the 'real' editors.

Corrected entry: Stay right until the end of the credits to see a cool clip involving Pirates and an Usherette.


Correction: While this scene is indeed present, it is NOT an Easter egg. It has always been there, even at the cinema. An Easter egg is something unique to a DVD that usually needs to be hunted for and found. This doesn't qualify.

Hide and Seek (2005)

Corrected entry: Just before Charlie punches Katherine whilst in the cave, he turns his torch off. Yet when Emily shouts out to get his attention, the torch is magically back on when he picks it up.


Correction: It could have easily been turned back on immediately after knocking the gun away, or even FROM knocking the gun away. Even from the impact of being dropped could have turned it on.

Reservoir Dogs (1992)

Correction: He wouldn't necessarily die instantly by being shot in the chest.

Saw (2004)

Corrected entry: The shard of glass that first tells Adam that there is a two way mirror in the room keeps changing position on the floor throughout the movie.


Correction: As they are in the room for about eight hours and the movie is under two hours, it makes sense that Adam would nervously handle objects around him during the un-filmed time.

Eastenders (1985)

Show generally

Corrected entry: When Den got hit with the doorstop by Chrissie and landed on the floor, his eyes were open. Yet right at the end of the episode when it showed Den, they were closed.


Correction: First when Zoe hit him he had his eyes open. Then when Chrissie hit him he closed them.

Identity (2003)

Corrected entry: The cop dies instantly when stabbed by Ray Liotta whilst in the cop car. Yet in the next shot from the outside view, the stunt driver steers the car to a stop.


Correction: There is nothing in the scene that indicates that the policeman died instantaneously. We see him get stabbed, jerking from the shock and the impact of the blade, and then the camera goes to the outside view. The policeman may have lived some seconds or even minutes after the stabbing, and would have stopped the car to get out.

The Simpsons (1989)

Old Money - S2-E17

Corrected entry: Mr Burns says to Abe that he has just made a powerful enemy, it's as if he has only just met him. Yet in a later episode we find out that Abe and Burns were in the "Flying Hellfish" regiment in WW2.


Correction: Mr Burns regularly forgets things and certainly wouldn't remember someone he regards as unimportant like Abe. Mr Burns has to be reminded who Homer is almost every time, even though they regularly interact.

Saw (2004)

Corrected entry: The room where Lawrence and Adam are being held in is at least 10 feet underground (we know this because Zep climbs down a ladder whilst running away from Tapp). Lawrence shouldn't be able to get a mobile phone signal, yet he manages to receive two calls.


Correction: Whether you get a cell phone singal is dependent upon a lot of factors. The depth is not the only one. It would be possible to have a signal.

Dad's Army (1971)

Correction: "Cats Eyes" were invented in 1933 by Percy Shaw. In 1935, he opened a factory to manufacture them and a year later, the first 50 were laid in Bradford. They became popular throughout Britain in World War II. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cat's_eye_(road).

Dr Muppet

Corrected entry: If You've ever watched the TV series of SpongeBob, you will know that he dries up and almost dies every time he is out of water for a few minutes. Yet in the movie, SpongeBob and Patrick are on the beach chatting with David Hasselhoff and nothing happens to him.


Correction: Not quite right. In the episode Pressure, Spongebob and the gang take on a bet to go onto the surface for at least a minute. They get onto the land for over a minute and Spongebob never comes close to drying up.

Correction: They were in wet-ish air in both Pressure and the movie. This could be why they don't dry up.
