Oculus (2013)

Question: When the siblings are outside and Tim calls for help, they are unsure whether he did or not, so he tries again to get a muffled sound. Why didn't they run away from the house and try again? Try and keep clear of the house? (01:19:00)

Who Am I? - S7-E5

Character mistake: In every episode, whenever Robert eats, he always touches his food with his chin first before he eats it, but when he took a cookie that Marie cooked for Raymond, there was no 'touching the chin'.

Fortress (1992)

Question: Apparently former VFL/AFL star Warwick Capper has a cameo appearance in this movie. Wondering where he is? Is he the zombie looking dude around 20:30-20:40 minute mark?

oobs

Plot hole: Nancy has realised she has pulled Freddy out of her dream, but later Freddy and Nancy were basically in the same position in Nancy's dream, why didn't Freddy come out of the dream world and come into reality then? (00:40:17 - 01:18:01)

The Terminator (1984)

Question: Towards the end of the movie when Kyle Reese dies, what will happen to him, considering he's from the future and there is no way he could be identified?

oobs

Answer: He would likely be considered as a "John Doe," with some identifying number, then buried in a modern-day equivalent of a "Potter's Field," where unknown persons are buried. Sarah Conner could have supplied Kyle's name, though this could not be verified and he'd still be considered as an unknown.

Answer: Also, in the sequel when the T-1000 looks up John Connor's info on the police car's computer, John's father is listed as "unknown', so any info Sarah had given the police was apparently disregarded.

Answer: He'd be treated like any other John Doe corpse.

Grudge Match (2013)

Trivia: Sylvester Stallone was about to hit some meat in an abattoir. This is part of how his character Rocky Balboa trained in the original Rocky. (00:47:00)

Kiss the Girls (1997)

Question: The villain is driving off with Morgan Freeman running right behind him with a gun in his hand. Why didn't Freeman try and shoot the tyres? (01:10:00)

oobs

Answer: Shooting out of the tires on a fleeing vehicle is not a viable, realistic strategy. It is a movie cliche akin to shooting out a padlock or saving a hanging man by shooting the rope. It is not something people do in real life and it is therefore realistic that Morgan Freeman wouldn't attempt to do so in this film.

28 Days Later (2002)

Other mistake: When Jim, Selena, Frank and his daughter enter the supermarket, you can notice all the fresh produce (apples, carrots etc) looking fresh. This virus has been going on for a few days now, and supermarkets get their fresh produce out immediately. After 10 days or so, give or take, the fresh produce shouldn't be looking this fresh.

Creed II (2018)

Trivia: Andonis Creed proposes to his girlfriend to his girlfriend in the "Creed" sequel just after he won the heavyweight title, like Rocky Balboa did in Rocky II, after he beat Apollo Creed for the heavyweight title. (00:11:00)

Pants On Fire - S3-E14

Other mistake: Early in the episode, Frank turns on the heater and the family discover a bottle top in one of the vents Ray has thrown from a party he held 20 years ago. This couldn't have been the 1st time the heater had been used in that amount of time. (00:03:00)

Immortal Kombat - S1-E4

Other mistake: When the monk returns the water bottle to Siro and Taja, not long after talking to them (not realising the water bottle belongs to Kung Lao), how did Siro and Taja get so far ahead of the monk in that short amount of time? (00:05:35 - 00:06:35)

Noob Saibot - S1-E6

Plot hole: In the Mortal Kombat storyline, Noob Saibot is the original Sub Zero after he was killed in the Mortal Kombat tournament. At this stage, Sub Zero has not been killed, therefore Noob Saibot should not yet exist.

Suggested correction: It is not required that this show share the exact same continuity as the games. Even if it did, there is nothing stopping this from being a previous version, or a merging of the two, or the dead Sub-Zero being given his name an powers.

LorgSkyegon

Question: When Will convinces Mark to hold off leaving town so he can go save Lori, Mark says "OK, but if you're not here by morning, I'm outta here." Just wondering how Mark was going to leave town (if he survived the night and Will didn't make it back) since Will had his vehicle?

oobs

Answer: He could choose to either hitchhike or get someone to take him to the next town.

Answer: The town has said no-one comes in, and no-one leaves (which how do some of the character get to crystal lake which is in the movie mistakes as a plot hole) how could he leave?

Mortal Kombat (1995)

Question: When Lui Kang fights Reptile, what was Johnny Cage doing this entire time? (01:12:15 - 01:15:50)

oobs

Answer: Since the entire fight is focused on Liu Kang and Reptile, he could have possibly waited to see what the outcome of the fight was.

Answer: Wouldn't Johnny Cage want to go in to help his "mate", rather than stand their and watch? The question here (because Reptile is a secret character in MK1 and Raiden saying "In Outworld, you will find another guy") is that can Johnny Cage interfere with the fight, or is that against the rules in this tournament?

oobs

Not only is it against the rules, but Raiden never said they'd find another guy. What he said was, "You'll find another guide." The guide being Kitana.

That is indeed against the rules.

The Hangover (2009)

Question: When Phil, Stu and Alan get back into the hotel, they find Mike Tyson and his mate in their hotel wanting their tiger back. Just wondering a) How did Mike Tyson know who these guys were that took the tiger and b) where they were staying? (01:09:00)

oobs

Answer: They answer that in the movie! Doug dropped his jacket at Tyson's. His wallet and room key were in it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9NtxDYU8G4&feature=youtu.be&t=89.

Ray

Answer: The guys were caught on Tyson's security camera while stealing the tiger. His security people were likely able to identify and track them using the video footage.

Other mistake: As the cop is walking towards the coffee machine, he steps on the T-1000 (disguised as the floor). The cop proceeds to the coffee machine and buys a coffee while the T-1000 turns into the cop. The T-1000 only touches his shoe, so shouldn't be able to copy his appearance. (00:51:00)

Suggested correction: The impression is given that the cop walking over the T-1000 gives the T-1000 the ability to copy him. But in truth we don't actually see when the T-1000 came with the sample of the cop to be able to copy him, maybe he had already collected his DNA beforehand. Far-fetched example is that humans shed skin and hair all the time, if that falls onto the T-1000 that could be enough.

lionhead

Sorry but I disagree with this correction. If we are going down this road of "but maybe..." then it opens up a whole can of worms for what is a mistake and what isn't. In an explosion, a vase still on a shelf might have been glued but its unlikely. Where does it end? I think the original entry is for mistake is correct based on A - if the t1000 already had his DNA then why disguise himself as the floor? He'd have just killed him when he first got to the hospital and B - Unless we actually see or hear any evidence that the T-1000 would actually behave in this manner then as far as we the audience can believe, it doesn't happen.

The_Iceman

It's about plausibility. It's to see if the writers and director actually made a mistake or gave it to our imagination.

Saw IV (2007)

Question: Just wondering, usually a sequel takes part after the previous movie (eg Saw II is a sequel to Saw I) and a prequel is before the previous movie (ie Star Wars episode 1 compared to Star Wars episode IV) but to me Saw IV is set at the same time of Saw III, is this called a samequel?

oobs

Chosen answer: I believe the term for two storylines taking place simultaneously is "paraquel."

Answer: A mid-quel?! an "equal"?.

dizzyd

"Equal" gets my vote. :-).

Answer: The way I understand it, Saw IV takes place after Saw III, not at the same time, so it would be a sequel. Detective Kerry and John Kramer die in Saw III and are dead in Saw IV. Although, when sequels do show flashbacks, that doesn't mean it's set in the same time as the previous film. A film that takes place during the same timeframe as a previous film in the series is called a midquel. A film that is centered around the same event as a previous film, but shown from a different perspective can also be called a "twin film."

Bishop73

Jeff's game from "Saw III" and Rigg's game from "Saw IV" are happening at the same time.

Continuity mistake: When the "firemen" (Ethan Hunt, Claire Phelps, Luther Stickell and Franz Krieger) leave Langley, Claire is in a red coat and red dress. As we see all four drive off in a fire truck, Claire is in a fireman's costume. Firstly, when did she have the time to change and secondly, why change? (01:08:00 - 01:10:00)

Man on a Ledge (2012)

Other mistake: When Nick Cassidy climbs onto the roof, he somehow injures his leg, but moments later, he's running at full speed. (01:24:00)

Continuity mistake: In the first movie, Mia tells Brian that Letty lived down the road, was into cars since she was 10 and immediately had Dom's attention, but here Dom tells Letty that he gave her her first scar at age 15, when they first met. (01:08:00 - 01:09:00)
