Stupidity: Bond had to take the elevator all the way down to the ground floor of Osato's office after opening the safe. The guards knew he was on the elevator. Why didn't they have several men ready to kill or apprehend Bond when he got off the elevator?

Iron Man 2 (2010)

Stupidity: Why in the world would Tony of all people leave his old suits in storage WITH the miniature arc reactor still inside the suit? This would have served no purpose to Tony since he already has his own arc reactor in his body.

Suggested correction: This is a question which is easily answered; Tony had the idea of putting someone else in the suit (like Rhodey) himself. Plus, it's logical to think he has built multiple miniature arc reactors, after the events of the previous movie. Plus, he can probably just as easily switch from arc reactor to arc reactor in his chest when changing suits, so he has a fully powered arc reactor ready in each suit.

Revealing mistake: The two Jeeps running during the tour are supposed to be automatically moving along the track in the road but several shots reveal there is nothing connecting the Jeeps to the track.

Jurassic Park (1993)

Character mistake: Grant and Tim could simply have moved to the side of the tree instead of climbing down with the Jeep right behind them.

jbrbbt

Revealing mistake: The shot of the eight members of the group is reused later in the film when there should only be seven.

Suggested correction: This is much too vague. Where is the repeated shot used?

Rear Window (1954)

Plot hole: The Thorwalds were supposed to be in the apartment for only six months according to the lease, their phone number wouldn't have been published in the phone book for such a short lease.

jbrbbt

Plot hole: Other than setting up the subsequent car chase and helicopter sequence what is the point in Bond going back to Osato's office posing as Mr. Fisher? As far as the plot goes Bond doesn't get anywhere else in his mission so couldn't he and Ali have just gone straight to the Ning Po?

jbrbbt

Plot hole: It's brought up several times that the kind of music Cronauer is playing is not acceptable. Then why would such records of those songs be at the radio station in the first place?

Suggested correction: Vinyls contain many songs, even small 45 rpm can contain 4 tracks; so one song might be forbidden or considered unacceptable, but not the rest.

Question: At one point in the film Doc pulls out a case of "emergency money" he's collected from different time periods. When did he have the time to go to all those time periods? Marty went to 1955 and after getting back Doc went to 2015 before coming straight back again to get Marty to go to the future, so when did Doc have the time to go collecting all that money?

jbrbbt

Answer: He wouldn't have to travel to the specific time periods to get past money; he could have found ways to procure it in the present (from collectors, museums, banks, etc.) before ever time traveling in the first place.

Answer: He didn't just visit 2015 and came straight back. He had visited more places and spend some time travelling before returning to Marty. He collected all the money in those visits.

Gremlins (1984)

Revealing mistake: When the cops watch the guy in the Santa costume being attacked their brakes are cut under the car but a few moments later when they drive off down the street they do apply the brakes to stop from the lights exploding above and the brakes do work.

Suggested correction: A cut brake line would not stop the brakes from working instantly. It would take a few pumps of the brakes for fluid to expel. So the brakes would work for a little while.

Commando (1985)

Plot hole: After Matrix and Bennett have their long fight Bennett picks up a small UZI ready to kill Matrix. Where did the gun come from? Matrix didn't kill anyone in that room and Bennett threw away the gun he had which was a pistol yet there just happens to be a gun already on the floor.

Continuity mistake: When Indy sits down in the seat of the plane look behind him, there is nobody holding a Life magazine or fitting the description of the man later shown watching him from the other seat.

Demolition Man (1993)

Character mistake: When the alarms go off in the police station indicating the code 187 all the police officers are confused as to what is going on since they know nothing of MDKs. Zack Lamb should have already known what the code meant, yet he never says anything and just waits for everyone to figure it out.

Suggested correction: Zack Lamb is quite old and it's possible he simply forgot what the code meant. He was a pilot too, not a street cop.

Demolition Man (1993)

Plot hole: Even if the 30 bus passengers that were already dead had been burned up in the explosion of the building their bodies would still have been autopsied after the fact, thus proving that Phoenix had killed them beforehand and vindicated Spartan.

Suggested correction: Considering a building fell on the bodies it would be extremely hard to determine the actual cause of death. Phoenix also could have killed them in a way that doesn't easily show in an autopsy, like asphyxiation.

Forrest Gump (1994)

Factual error: There is a modern 1960's car in the background when Forrest says Bubba's grandmother cooked shrimp. As young as his grandmother appears to be, no such car would have existed at that time.

Suggested correction: Bubba's grandmother is never seen. The person we see serving shrimp is Bubba's mother and then it skips to his great-grandmother.

Arachnophobia (1990)

Revealing mistake: When Atherton is using his fog machine to spray up into the tree look to his left, you can see another spray of the fog being added to the tree by an unseen stagehand.

jbrbbt

Character mistake: Watch the extras playing the Cairo civilians walking around just before the big swordsman reveals himself to Indy. Several of them are just aimlessly walking back and forth as if they have no idea where to go.

jbrbbt

Continuity mistake: When Bond is having his chase through Las Vegas with all the police there are several shots of the casino clocks in the background. At one point the time goes from 1:30 to almost 4 o'clock in just a few minutes.

Dr. No (1962)

Stupidity: What purpose is served by having Bond and Honey's coffee drugged and knocking them out just for them to wake up later in the same room? They can't escape, so all the film needed was a time jump to when they were getting dressed for the meeting with Dr. No without being drugged.

jbrbbt

Revealing mistake: Look carefully at the close-ups of C3PO's waste where the exposed wires are. You can tell it's fake wiring on top of a black suit which is particularly noticeable when the actor inside the costume as his stomach is moving when he has to breathe.
