Uncut Gems (2019)

Factual error: The 2012 NBA conference semifinals took place between May 12th and May 26th of that year. Passover in 2012 began on April 6th and ended on April 14th. A Seder would not have taken place during the semis of that year.

Uncut Gems (2019)

Factual error: Mohegan Sun casino is in the state of Connecticut. Connecticut does not have legalized sports betting and did not have it in 2012, when the film is set, therefore Julia would not have been able to place Howard's bet.

Underwater (2020)

Other mistake: *Spoiler Alert* The strength of the underwater suits is wildly inconsistent. Rodrigo's suit almost immediately cracks and implodes, killing him. Paul's suit is easily ripped open by the creatures, also killing him, but Norah is repeatedly slammed into the sea floor by one of the creatures and her suit remains remarkably intact.

Suggested correction: It is stated by one of the survivors that one of the helmets was damaged. Rodrigo had the damaged one.

Actually, that's not completely accurate. She says something like "Faulty, I knew they were faulty." That also doesn't account for the fact that the creatures tore Paul right out of his suit, but couldn't seem to do the same with Norah.

His suit was faulty. He noticed a crack when he first picked it to put it on.

Continuity mistake: ***SPOILER ALERT*** Towards the end of the film, when one of the Manson Family members falls into the pool, we see the water turn red with blood. When Dalton comes back with the flamethrower, the water is clear.

Factual error: When Cliff is driving back to his trailer at night, he drives past a lit Subway restaurant sign. The first Subway on the West Coast did not open until 1978 in Fresno.

Factual error: When Cliff is driving home on the freeway, just before he takes the off-ramp, a numbered exit sign is visible. California did not adopt numbered exits until 2002.

Factual error: On the Hollywood 101 freeway, concrete "K" rails can be seen in the center divider. In 1969, the older steel rails were still in use in California.

Black Panther (2018)

Black Panther mistake picture

Factual error: During the mid-credits scene T'Challa is addressing the United Nations about Wakanda's true nature. A Welsh flag can be seen among the other nation's flags, which would suggest that Wales is a separate nation from The United Kingdom, which is not the case.

Continuity mistake: During the opening scene with Ego and Quill's mother, they run into the woods behind the Dairy Queen, and mom is wearing boots with fur trim. When the get to where the Ego's plant is in the ground, she is suddenly wearing sandals.

Other mistake: The Millennium Falcon crash lands on Kef Bir, leaving a long trail of destruction, supposedly because the landing gear is malfunctioning. However, the Falcon has always had vertical takeoff capability, so even if the landing struts were damaged, there would be no reason for this type of crash landing.

Suggested correction: Since so many things always break down on the ship it's possible the vertical landing capabilities were malfunctioning at that time.

However, the characters specifically mention the malfunctioning landing gear as the reason for the crash landing.

wizard_of_gore Premium member

Exactly, they needed the landing gear to land but it malfunctioned, resulting in a crash.

A plausible explanation but highly unlikely as it would be a one way trip. The damage caused by a high speed landing and a hard one at that would make the falcon unusable for space flight, the underbelly gun would be ripped off for starters and possible damage to the gunner's window as well and damage to the Hull. Same situation in the force awakens on Starkiller base and in solo. These problems are never addressed or explained but I guess this is the magic of the movies.

Trivia: C-3PO's final line of dialogue, "Did you hear that?" is also the first line he speaks in the entire series, in Episode IV, "A New Hope."

Ford v Ferrari (2019)

Factual error: During Lee Iacocca's slide presentation to Henry Ford II in 1963, there are two slides that reference James Bond. One shows him standing next to the Aston Martin DB5, which made its debut in "Goldfinger" in 1964, and another shows a still image from "Thunderball", which was released in 1965.

Joker (2019)

Factual error: Based on the films being shown at the theater, the movie appears to be set in 1981. One of the TV commercials shows the Energizer Bunny, which didn't make its first appearance until 1988.
