It (2017)

New this month 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."

New this month Factual error: General Hoyt is shown as a five star General, and he makes reference to it. However, this rank did not exist in 1962. The last person to hold this rank was Omar Bradley in 1950.

New this month Suggested correction: The rank of General of the Army (5-Star general) still exists, it's simply that no one has been given that rank since General Bradley. But as a fictitious character, there is nothing wrong with General Hoyt obtaining the rank simply because no one else has. Though some may say the rank was retired in the 80's after Bradley's death, there have been a few who were considered for the rank in modern times, such as Powell and Schwarzkopf.

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.

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.

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?

Factual error: After Toomes and his crew lose the cleanup contract and they are back in their shop, on the table is a Coors "stubby" Banquet beer bottle. This bottle was released in 2013 and the scene takes place earlier than that.

Trivia: During Batman and Superman's fight scene, there is a shot of some graffiti that says "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?", which is Latin for, "Who watches the watchers?" This is a reference to "Watchmen", which was also directed by Zack Snyder, and also references the theme of both films.

Character mistake: At one point Felicity says, "There's at least a teraflop of data to go through." Felicity is a computer genius, so she should know that a teraflop is a measurement of processing power, not data storage. She should have said "terabyte."

Trivia: The $370,000 that Andy Dufresne steals from the Warden in 1966 may not seem like a huge amount for 20 years in prison, but adjusted for inflation to 2014, Andy stole about $2.75 million.
