Slap Shot (1977)

Plot hole: During the intermission break of the championship game, Joe shouts about scouts from the NHL in the stands waiting to sign up the team. But Reggie is mystified about this before sending his team out to get rough again. Why doesn't the coach of his own team know about people from the NHL waiting to sign his players up?

Slap Shot (1977)

Plot hole: When the lie about the team moving to Florida hits the public, nobody other than Ned Braden bothers to look into it. Even Joe, the general manager never asks where it came from, which would be something he would know about before the press did.

Continuity mistake: When Freddy pours the popcorn out of the box at the beginning of the movie he sits the box down at an angle with the flaps open. But when he and Frank come back up stairs from the basement the box is back in place and the flaps are closed.

Trivia: Unknown at the time, two future Star Trek references are made in this film. The director, Robert Wise, would go on to direct Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and at the end of the film when discussing the cloud seeding, a caption on the video monitor reads out "Nimbus 3". This was the name of the planet on which Sybok takes prisoners in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.

Die Hard (1988)

Revealing mistake: After Powell frantically radios in his distress call, other police cars converge on the street in front of Nakatomi Plaza, blocking off both sides of the street. But when McClane grapples down the building using the firehose, you can see traffic on the street below and none of them are police.

Trivia: During the opening credits, when the Earth rotates from the bottom of the screen to the left, listen carefully to the music. It is the same music played just after the Klingon ship goes back in time to 1986 in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (right after the heads of the Enterprise crew morph on screen).

The Big Goodbye - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: When Picard looks out the window of the Dixon Hill office he sees the cars passing by each other, the traffic light is right in front of the window as if the entire building is not only in the middle of the street but only one story high.

Hard Rain (1998)

Star Trek (1966)

The Menagerie (2) - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: The shot of the castle on Rigel VII seems to be what Pike sees through his eyes, but in the next shot he himself is in the shot.

Star Trek (1966)

The Menagerie (2) - S1-E12

Plot hole: Apparently there is some confusion over the distance between Earth, Starbase 11, and Talos IV. When Spock first meets Pike on Starbase 11 he tells Pike Talos IV is only six days away. Yet when Pike (in the recording) speaks to the Talosians for the first time, he says he is from a star system on the other side of the galaxy. If Talos IV was on one side of the galaxy and Earth was on the other side, it would take hundreds of years at maximum warp to travel from one planet to the other.

Trivia: Just before Kirk tells Scotty to open the bay doors of the Enterprise, a beeping sound is heard inside the shuttlecraft. This same sound effect is heard inside the Russian spacecraft during the probe scene in 2010: The Year We Make Contact.

Revealing mistake: When Spock is on Vulcan, it is blatantly obvious the actors playing the Vulcan elders are speaking English with a bad dubbing.

Trivia: If you look at the Kholinar necklace Spock was to be given when he was on Vulcan it bears a striking resemblance to the Enterprise, especially when it is laying on the ground before Spock picks it up.

The Core (2003)

Revealing mistake: When the ship breaks the wall outside the geode chamber we see the rock reform and harden as soon as the ship is through, so how could the magma leak into the geode if that rock had already hardened?

Trials and Tribble-ations - S5-E6

Question: Wouldn't Sisko have created a paradox by identifying himself by his real name to James T. Kirk before returning to the future?

jbrbbt

Chosen answer: No. He's given his name, that's all. Nothing there that might lead to a paradox. If he's gone into detail about his time travelling, that might cause an issue or two, but simply stating his name does nothing.
