Titanic (1997)

Corrected entry: When Cal is shooting at Jack and Rose, he leans over the rail and when he shoots the angle at which he's shooting is different from where the water shoots up when the bullet hits the water. (02:13:10)

Ben's Mom

Correction: Not true, he leans over and shoots straight down. The water then shoots straight up.

Twister (1996)

Corrected entry: When they all go to Meg's to eat, the gravy is set down in front of Melissa and Dusty. Dusty picks up the bowl, tells her to she has to have it, and spoons gravy on to her potatoes - but you can see that she already has gravy on her potatoes.

Ben's Mom

Correction: When you see the shot of gravy going on her potatoes, Dusty had already scooped some on to her plate before that.

Meet the Fockers (2004)

Corrected entry: When everyone is having fondue in the patio room, Isabelle comes out and kisses Gaylord on the cheek. The lipstick mark she left on his right cheek changes positions and even disappears from shot to shot. (00:40:15 - 00:41:35)

Ben's Mom

Correction: No it doesn't, it stays on his right cheek for the rest of the scene.

The Green Mile (1999)

Corrected entry: When the Indian inmate (first one executed) is in the electric chair, after they've hooked him up and before they begin the electrocution they show him up close with the black hood on breathing hard. You can see that he already has the markings and blood on his forehead from the electrocution before they even begin electrocuting him.

Ben's Mom

Correction: You are seeing shadows from the hood being pulled down. It makes absolutely no sense to use makeup during this scene when we don't see his body and the effects of the botched execution until the next scene.

The Aviator (2004)

Corrected entry: When Hughes is with his staff and they're watching the Jane Russell movie (while Hughes is trying to talk to them about his ideas for the plane), the same part of this movie is played twice during this scene.

Ben's Mom

Correction: Correct, but not a mistake. Notice that just after the second sighting of the 'tucking into bed' shot, the end-of-roll markings flicker by, then another shot begins. They are watching clips from the unfinished film, not the finished product. In fact, while these scenes play, Howard is discussing a revised bra he wants Jane Russell to wear in future shots. Therefore, there is no mistake here.

Corrected entry: When in the church during the Atlanta raid, a preacher is standing saying a prayer over the wounded soldiers and a bomb blows out the stained glass window of Christ. However, in the next scene with Scarlett and the doctor, you can see the same stained glass window of Christ in the background and the part that was blown out is intact and present again.

Ben's Mom

Correction: No it's not. It looks that way because there's not a clear sky behind it, but what looks like the stained glass is actually a tree in the background.

Corrected entry: When Courtney, Christina, and Jane are in the club cheering Jane up Christina and Courtney come off the dance floor and fall on top of Jane on the water bed. When she topples over it's clear Jane is not wearing any panties.

Ben's Mom

Correction: Selma Blair mentions on the audio commentary that she was wearing underwear, but it was a lacy black pair and it looks a lot like she isn't and it's... something else down there. The other cast members and the director accuse her of 'not waxing' which she strongly denies.

Corrected entry: When John Bender (Judd Nelson) is in the gym shooting hoops and the teacher (Dick) comes in, Bender is wearing a white tennis shoe on his left foot and a black boot on his right foot. His white shoe comes off and is left in the gym so he's then only wearing one black boot on his right foot. The next time you see him and for the rest of the movie he is wearing black boots on both his feet. Where did the left black boot come from?

Ben's Mom

Correction: Watch the movie from the beginning. Bender arrives by foot, wearing his own, dark, shoes. Bender most certainly found the white shoe in the boys' changing room on his way to the gym. Remember the opening scene even shows that there're sneakers and apparel left on the floor.

Correction: Watch closely when Bender tries to get around Dick (excuse me, Rich) to leave the gym and return to the library. He makes a "fake out" sort of move, toying with the teacher, and picks up his second boot and jacket as he does so.

Corrected entry: In the beginning, Novalee says that she was cut from her wrist to her elbow and it took 55 stitches to close her up. However, there's no scar or mark on either of her arms to indicate this ever really happened.

Ben's Mom

Correction: Some people's skin doesn't show scares very well. I am fair skined (about the same as Natalie Portman) and I had 60 stiches down my leg. Unless you know what you are looking for, you would never see the scar (sometimes I have a hard time seeing it).

Correction: Yes she does have a scar. When Novalee is taking pictures of Americus and Forney, it shows her scar. Watch the movie again and at 1:19:05 it shows her scar.
