The Avengers (2012)

New this week Plot hole: How was it possible for Dr. Selvig to build a fail-safe into his machine while he was brainwashed? Doesn't that imply that Loki secretly wanted it there?

New this week Suggested correction: Loki simply ordered him to build the machine. Selvig otherwise functions as a normal person, and his scientific imperative would have led him to create an emergency shut-off just like he would with any other kind of potentially dangerous machine he would normally build. If there was a scene in which Loki is shown instructing Selvig not to build a fail-safe into the machine, then it would be a plot hole.

New this week Stupidity: Ego's entire plain revolves around finding an offspring powerful enough to help him. After searching for hundreds of years and children, he finally finds Star-Lord, and just when he's about to succeed, he screws it up by telling Peter that he killed Peter's mom.

New this week Suggested correction: He only needs Star-Lord's inherited power for his plan to succeed. Star-Lord doesn't have to be a willing participant. Ego even mentions to Star-Lord when he impales him that he can spend a long time functioning as a battery of sorts. One way or another Star-Lord would have turned on Ego, as either Gamora or Yondu would have informed him of all of Ego's dead children.

New this week Stupidity: Villain Elliot Carver risks World War 3 by trying to incite war between China and the UK, all so he can obtain exclusive broadcasting rights in China? Seems awfully short-sighted.

New this week Suggested correction: He's crazy, he believes those rights give him a lot of power, make him untouchable. He doesn't care about world war 3. Of course it's short-sighted, that's why he is crazy. Crazy is not always stupid.

Tombstone (1993)

New this month Trivia: Jon Tenney, who plays Sheriff Johnny Behan, is using the real Behan's actual pistol, a 4 inch Colt Sheriff's Model, in the film. Screenwriter Peter Sherayko tracked it down and purchased it in order to end an argument between him and co-writer Kevin Jarre over the type of pistol Behan had used.

Hancock (2008)

Continuity mistake: After Mary reveals herself to Hancock, the next time she and Ray are at the kitchen table, the towel Ray picks up off the table immediately changes completely from the one that Mary uses to try and open the jar. There is no other towel anywhere near them, and it's a split second, so it's definitely supposed to be the same one.

Hancock (2008)

Factual error: During the bank robbery, Hancock throws a metal lamp shade to sever the leader's hand, who is holding a spring loaded, dead man switch. The switch would have released the instant the hand was severed and the muscles relaxed.

Hancock (2008)

Factual error: When Hancock saves Ray's life by stopping the train, stopping the train instantly like that would have caused it to violently derail, likely killing everyone on the train, and causing massive damage to the entire neighborhood.

Rawhide (1959)

Show generally

Factual error: The show is set in the 1860s. However, in several episodes, trail boss Gil Favor can be seen wearing Wrangler jeans. The Wrangler brand was not introduced until 1947.

It (2017)

Factual error: During the rock fight, Richie calls Henry Bowers a "mullet wearing a**hole." The term "mullet" wasn't coined until 1994 by the Beastie Boys in the song "Mullet Head."

Big Hero 6 (2014)

Trivia: In the original comics that serve as the basis for the film, Hiro is a child prodigy who fights to save his adoptive mother the Everwraith, an entity made from the souls of those killed in the atomic bomb attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Naturally, this was a little too edgy for Disney.

Trivia: The good witch Glinda's gown was originally used in the 1936 musical "San Francisco." It was modified slightly for use in "The Wizard of Oz."

Trivia: To further immerse the actors in their environment, director Milos Forman led them in unscripted group therapy sessions in which he directed the actors to develop their characters' mental illnesses organically. He would often capture footage of the actors, both in and out of character, without telling them that the cameras were rolling. The film's final cut includes a shot of a visibly irritated Fletcher reacting to a piece of direction fed to her by Forman.

Trivia: All of the actors who portrayed patients in the film actually lived on-site in the the Oregon State Hospital psychiatric ward during the production. The men personalized their sleeping quarters, interacted with real psychiatric patients and, as actor Vincent Schiavelli put it, spent part of their days getting a sense of what it was to be hospitalized.

Friday the 13th (1980)

Trivia: According to producer/director Sean Cunningham, Shelly Winters was the original choice for Mrs. Voorhees. He wanted a known actress whose career was winding down so the fee would be low. Winters wasn't interested. Estelle Parsons actually negotiated to be in the film, but ultimately backed out. Louise Lasser and Dorothy Malone were also considered before they finally would up with Betsy Palmer, who famously agreed to the role because she needed the money for a new car.

Season 8 generally

Other mistake: In Season 6, it is revealed that Maggie is pregnant. In Season 8, she's not even showing, suggesting that not much time has passed, but in that time, Judith has grown from an infant into a toddler.

Suggested correction: The scene you are referring to with Judith as a toddler is a flash forward scene where Rick is an old man. At this point we don't know if it was a dream/Ricks imagination or an actual flash forward. Either way, that is not the current Judith.

My Girl (1991)

Wonder Woman (2017)

Revealing mistake: When Diana and Steve sail from Themyscira to London, the sails on the boat just hang there, indicating that there is no wind. Sailboats need wind to move and the sails need periodic adjustment depending on from which direction the wind is coming.

Suggested correction: The sailboat is attached to a steamship or similar in front. That's why Steve said they made some good time.

I just watched the film again. There is no steamship. Where would it have come from?

wizard_of_gore Premium member

There's no indication the boat is under any form of power other than the sails.
