Continuity mistake: The colour of John Wayne's shirt changes from black to grey after entering the burnt out building. It can not be dust, as the covering is far too even and complete, and a couple of shots later it is black once more.

Hook (1991)

Question: Was Captain Hook called Hook before he lost his hand, and had it replaced by a hook?

Mad Ade

Chosen answer: No, he wasn't. To quote J.M. Barrie, "Hook was not his true name. To reveal who he really was would even at this date set the country in a blaze", which rather implies that Hook was supposed to have been an important individual at some earlier point in his life. The only other clue to his history is that Barrie mentions that he attended Eton.

King Kong (2005)

Question: If the wall around Skull island was built to keep Kong and presumably other creatures such as the dinosaurs in, why was the gate made large enough for them to get through?

Mad Ade

Chosen answer: The original creator of King Kong, Merin C. Cooper, wrote a novel adaption of the movie in which it was explained that the gates were built by a earlier culture of islanders that were friends with the "Kong" race. The "Kongs" helped the original islanders to build their village and the wall (thus meaning the gate had to be big enough for the giant gorillas to walk through). By the time of the events of the movie, the original islanders have "died out" and their old village had been taken over by a race of more primitive natives who became enemies with the Kongs, and were trying to use the gates for safety.

Constantine (2005)

Constantine mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where John commits suicide by slitting his wrist, the soles of his shoes go from brand new and unmarked (quite clearly seen in a couple of close up shots) to scuffed and worn (also seen quite well in a couple of shots).

Constantine (2005)

Constantine mistake picture

Continuity mistake: There is a close up shot, when John slits his wrist, of the blood seeping around his watch. It is an integral part of the scene, yet moments later, when viewed from above, the blood is nowhere near the watch.
