The Ring (2002)

Corrected entry: If making a copy of the tape "releases" Rachel from Samara's "grasp", why does the burned handprint on Rachel's arm disapear only when Rachel finds Samara in the well?

Correction: The handprint remains until her 'time to die' has passed.

The Ring (2002)

Corrected entry: How can Becca tell if Naomi saw the tape, and that she has four days left? Did Samara talk with Becca, or does she have any special sense? That is never cleared in the film.

Correction: Not everything has to be explained completely in a film. Becca has gone insane from the shock of seeing Samara, and as some kind of side effect can sense when people have seen the film.

The Ring (2002)

Corrected entry: Katie says they watched the tape after recording a football game on it. The guy at the cabin said that they have VCR's and tapes there because they get no TV reception. Why would they try to record the game off a TV without reception?

Correction: He says the reception is poor, they might have TV sometimes but not always, and if there was some reception the night Katie's friends were there they might have given recording a try.

Scream 2 (1997)

Corrected entry: When the killer is on the phone to Randy, Randy runs up to a guy with a mobile, who is right near the van that the killer is hiding in. Shouldn't Randy be able to hear the killer in the van which is right next to him?

Correction: Not necessarily. Randy is still far enough away the last time the killer speaks that he probably wouldn't hear her through solid metal, by the time he's close enough to be able to hear the killer doesn't speak any more, just reaches out and grabs him.

The Initiative - S4-E7

Corrected entry: In "The Initiative" in Season 4, Spike is given the chip implant that causes intense neurological pain if he harms a human. We see this take effect when he tries to bite Willow, but he was able to beat up the doctors at the Initiative to escape.

Correction: It's possible the chip was only activated after his escape from the Initiative.

Shay

Corrected entry: If Death was working backwards through the order people would have died, Clear should have been last on the list to die, as she was the one who defied death first.

Correction: Clear was on the list of people who were supposed to die on Flight 180, the others were on the list for the Highway 180 pile-up. Two different lists, two different orders, and since Clear is the only survivor from list one she can be killed any time.

Shay

Corrected entry: In the scene where Kimberley has the premonition about the road crash, she had been driving on the highway for a while before the truck with the logs passed her, then subsequently crashed. However, back in reality, the log truck passed and crashed virtually right in front of them - within yards of the junction. If they had actually driven onto the highway when the lights turned green, they would have been miles ahead of the crash scene. (01:25:56)

Correction: In Kimberly's vision she pulls out in front of the truck and causes it to slow down, probably delaying the accident by a few minutes. In real life she never cut in front of it, meaning it never slowed down, so the accident happened much sooner.

Show generally

Corrected entry: If Angel presumably had an invition into Giles' apartment (to leave Jenny's body) why did he need to be reinvited again in "Amends"? Giles never had that un-invitation spell done, he doesn't have any herbs or crosses by his doorframe.

Correction: When Giles returns home in Passion he's about to do the un-invitation spell, so he probably did it some time after that. The crosses might not be a completely necessary part of the spell - when the spell is done at Buffy's house in season 5 there are no crosses used.

Shay

Corrected entry: Wouldn't Marty's parents and Biff Tannen be amazed and freaked out that their son Marty is identical to Calvin, the kid that played a major part in all their lives, and who they would definitely remember?

ShooterMcGavin34

Correction: It's 30 years later, I doubt they remember a guy who they only knew for a few days back when they were teenagers well enough to recognise him as Marty.

28 Days Later (2002)

Corrected entry: When the main characters first got to the area they heard broadcast, there were citizen's cars parked in front with luggage, just like theirs, When they got to the house, there weren't other people. Didn't they think that was a bit fishy?

fan before the site

Correction: They did, Selena says right off that something isn't right and they should get out of there, but before they can the soldiers arrive. They are basically forced to go to the army base.

The Terminator (1984)

Corrected entry: When Kyle escapes the department store he is not wearing a shirt, but in the next scene when he is following Sarah he is wearing a grey shirt and continues to wear it throughout the movie.

Correction: The scene where he's following Sarah actually takes place the next night. He had stolen a car by then, it's entirely possible he stole a shirt too.

Aliens (1986)

Corrected entry: In Alien we are told that the crew are 10 months from Earth when they find the Alien's planet. So how are the marines able to travel there in such short time in Aliens? I know Newt is one tough daughter-of-a-bitch but surely she couldn't survive for 10 months.

Correction: The Sulaco travels at an extremely fast speed, it took them about two weeks. Reading the Colonial Marines Technical Manual, I learned a whole lot of interesting useless stuff but basically they went from Gateway Station (Earth orbit) to LV-426 in two weeks.

Shay

Corrected entry: Mustafa explains to Austin and Felicity that he can't stand being asked the same question 3 times, and so on the 3rd time, he answers. But just before Mustafa reveals this to them, he is asked a question by Felicity and he tells the answer straight away, instead of waiting for it to be asked 3 times. (Incidentally, the answer he gives to that question is that he can't stand being asked the same question 3 times.)

Padzter

Correction: He only has to be asked three times if he doesn't want to give the answer. He has no problem telling Felicity he hates being asked the same question, it's only information about Dr. Evil that they have to force out of him.

The Matrix (1999)

Corrected entry: When they are all escaping climbing down the wall they were going down yet Morpheus jumps from above and lands on the agent.

gandolfs dad

Correction: They are all going down inside the wet wall, but all at different levels. Neo is at the same level as the Agent, while Morpheus is a few feet above him. He punches through the wall and doesn't jump but falls onto the Agent.

Shay

Corrected entry: In one scene Amy is attacked. She has video tapes in her bag showing a death. She chucks her bag with one of the tapes in it to distract the killer. She runs away, he eventually gets the other tape but not the one in the bag - wouldn't that show the evidence?

Correction: She mentions the other tape to Reese, so she remembers it but doesn't have it any more. This implies that the killer doubled back before her and took her bag.
