New this week Plot hole: In this movie, it's established that Salazar is released because Jack gave away the compass. But in the second movie, he gave it to Will and Elizabeth, and in the third movie to Cutler Beckett. Wouldn't it have freed Salazar then too?

New this week Trivia: The ship we see Jack on in Salazar's flashback is called the Wicked Wench. This is a bit of an in-joke for PotC buffs, because that was the original name of the Black Pearl before being sunk by Cutler Beckett and raised again by Davy Jones. It's fully explained in a deleted scene of At World's End.

Wonder Woman (2017)

Character mistake: Chief says the poison gas should be flammable because it's hydrogen-based. Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe, and there are plenty of non-flammable substances that contain hydrogen - the most notable of which being water.

Stupidity: So when Belle finds out that her father is being hauled away to the insane asylum, she is in such a rush to get that she doesn't even change out of the massive yellow dress that would be really uncomfortable to ride a horse in, probably because she is in such a hurry. But earlier in the movie, the Beast shows her his magic book that allows him to teleport anywhere in the world, so why doesn't she just use that?

John Wick (2014)

Continuity mistake: When Viggo crashes into John's Charger, it's bent out of shape pretty badly, almost to what would be halfway to the driver's seat. Yet John is fine, and in the next shot, the car is basically too.

Continuity mistake: When Batman and Batgirl are about to have sex on the roof, Batman lets his left hand slip down from her back to her butt. In the next shot, it's on her back again.

Question: Why does Elizabeth take the medallion with her after her blood fails to lift the curse? She knows that it "calls to them", so it would only act as a homing beacon, but she doesn't know that they're after Will specifically, in fact, at that point, only Jack knows that. So why would she risk the pirates coming after them?

Answer: She does realise they are after Will, she called herself Turner and Barbossa reveals they need a Turner, meaning Will. She takes the medallion with her because it belongs to Will.

Black Sails (2014)

XXXIII - S4-E5

Long John Silver: [Referring to the Walrus] Everything we put that ship through, and she refuses to die... It's fucking unnatural.

Other mistake: When the saucer of the Enterprise finally crashes, all sorts of dust comes into the bridge through the big window at the front. Two mistakes here: 1. The very next shot shows that the dust cloud never actually reaches up to the bridge (which is in the middle of the saucer) and 2. Later in the movie, Kirk and Chekov escape the bridge, but to do so, they need to shoot the window out. So the dust couldn't have got in even if it had reached the bridge. Which it didn't.

Thomas Hamilton: We can't get an honest man appointed governor in the Bahamas.
James McGraw: You can get him appointed, the problem seems to be keeping him honest thereafter.

Black Sails (2014)

XXVIII - S3-E10

Ann Bonnie: [Referring to Captain Teach.] A few weeks ago, we had a chance to sail with him, and you said you'd always be looking over your shoulder.
Jack Rackham: I will say this for him: in recent weeks, among the disturbing number of people that tried to kill one or both us us, he is not among them.

The Newsroom (2012)

Season 2 generally

Factual error: Most of what Will says about the Challenger's O-rings is wrong. First of all, he says they are meant to keep hydrogen from leaking out of the SRB. SRB stands for Solid Rocket Booster, meaning they use solid fuel, not hydrogen. The hydrogen was in the external fuel tank. Second, the O-rings were tested for cold, and NASA engineers recommended against launching that day, with one of them even refusing to sign off on the paperwork if the launch was to go forward. NASA overruled them and went ahead with the launch anyway, with all the disastrous consequences that ensued.

Trivia: After Bruce decides he's unhappy with his car, he turns it into a Saleen S7, one of the fastest production cars in the world at the time. That was actually Jim Carrey's own Saleen.

Arrow (2012)

What We Leave Behind - S5-E9

Factual error: When Oliver is hunting Prometheus, they come face to face. Oliver fires an arrow, which is tracked in slow motion before being split by one of Prometheus' throwing stars. Problem is that Oliver's arrow is, well, flying straight as an arrow. But in reality, when you film an arrow in slow motion, they flex and wobble, and definitely wouldn't fly like the one shown on screen.

Arrow (2012)

Guilty - S3-E6

Trivia: Oliver sticking an arrow in a boxing glove to knock out Ted without harming him is a nod to the comics, where a boxing glove arrow was quite common in his arsenal of trick arrows.

Trivia: In the opening, on the right of the screen, there is a bunch of arrows, followed by B A Select Start. This is the famous Konami code for the Nintendo.

Argo (2012)

Tony Mendez: What about the White House?
Jack O'Donnell: Carter is shitting enough bricks to build the pyramids.

Factual error: Even if Steve's enormous biceps are strong enough to hold back a helicopter, it would easily be able to take off between the time that he latched onto it and the time that he grabbed the rail. He provides no anchoring at this time, other than his body weight. That wouldn't be nearly enough to hold the helicopter down for as long as he does.

Sunshine (2007)

Factual error: Slingshotting around Mercury as the Icarus does wouldn't work. It may seem counter intuitive, but getting to the sun is actually really hard, as you have to cancel out the earth's orbital speed around the sun (which is about 30 km/s). Now, assuming this is possible, if they would then get caught in Mercury's orbit, they would have to decelerate all over again, only because Mercury is moving much faster than Earth, it's much harder (about 48 km/s). This would make it a needless detour that would only cost massive amounts of fuel, making it entirely pointless.
