Goosebumps (1995)

Welcome To Camp Nightmare (2) - S1-E6

New this month Other mistake: At the end of the episode, Billy's parents tell him that they are taking him to a dangerous place called Earth and then direct his attention towards the sky where Earth is visible in high detail in broad daylight of the atmosphere of whatever planet they are on. If Earth is visible in such great detail, and at daytime no less, then there is no way Billy could not have already been familiar with it.

It (2017)

Question: Why does Pennywise kill Georgie and Patrick almost immediately, but then spend time tormenting the other kids instead of outright killing them?

Serious B

Chosen answer: In order to install the fear of death in someone, to put them in your grasp, you must kill those closest to you. In doing so the fear is always inside them. Pennywise will always be in their thoughts and dreams. Which will constantly torture the kids, which what he wants.

Trivia: Sean Bean, who is famous for his many on-screen deaths, has said that the death of Boromir in this film is his favorite.

Continuity mistake: After Joe kills Chet by punching his nose up into his brain there is an instant cut and as Chet is collapsing to his knees, he already impossibly has a stream of blood running out of his ears all the way down to under his shirt collar.

Mary Loves Scoochie (2) - S6-E18

[Dick and Liam are engaged in a verbal joust to win Mary's affections.]
Dick: I will now dispatch my foe with an elegant haiku.
Liam: Five syllables, seven syllables, five syllables.
Dick: I know that. I'm so sick of you. You think you know everything. Will you stop it, please?
Liam: Now, yes that is technically a haiku, but it's a rather pedestrian one.
Dick: No, that was an accidental haiku. I want another turn.

Forrest Gump (1994)

Trivia: Disabled U.S. veterans would tell Gary Sinise that they were inspired by his portrayal of Lt. Dan in this film. Feeling humbled because he himself was neither a veteran or disabled, he established the Gary Sinise Foundation in order to help disabled veterans adjust to their new lives.

Factual error: This film portrays the ACLU as being an aggressively anti-Christian agency. This couldn't be further from reality. In the real world, the ACLU would more than likely defend Grace in court for mentioning Jesus in class, as opposed to being the ones representing the prosecution.

The Great Race (1965)

Question: How exactly did Leslie initially intend on crossing the Bering or Chuchki Sea from Alaska into Russia? I know he and Professor Fate end up floating on a large mass of ice to do so, but that's not exactly something you can plan for.

Serious B

Chosen answer: The cars and drivers were supposed to make the trip by ship from North America across the Bering Strait to a Russian port, where they would resume the race. As it happened, Leslie and Fate were stranded in a blizzard on the North American side before they reached the ship. The ice beneath their cars unexpectedly broke away and drifted across the Bering Strait, improbably arriving at the intended destination port in Russia. As they drift into port, we see Leslie's right-hand man, Hezekiah, waving at them from the Russian dock, which is only possible if Hezekiah made the journey by the very ship that Leslie and Fate missed.

X-Men (1992)

Reunion: Part 2 - S2-E13

Other mistake: When Gambit is consoling Rogue just before she is taken to be tortured, he tells her that he loves her, and states that he has never said that to anyone before. But as we learned earlier in the season, Gambit was engaged in his youth to Bella Donna. Surely he told her he loved her at some point. Rogue is aware of this aspect of Gambit's past, so he would have nothing to gain by lying to her about it.

Other mistake: A lot of times in scenes in episodes taking place in high school, characters are shown walking up to their lockers and opening them without putting in the combination first.

Trivia: SPOILER: During the third mid-credits scene, we see the high priestess Ayesha reveal that she is creating a being to destroy the Guardians, and that she will call him Adam. This is Adam Warlock, who in the comics is a being that was genetically engineered to be perfect and is Ayesha's "brother." He also played a very important role in the "Infinity Gauntlet" and "Infinity War" storylines that the next "Avengers" films will be based on.

Trivia: SPOILER: Stan Lee's cameo shows him discussing his time as a FedEx employee (a nod to his cameo from "Captain America: Civil War") and presumably his exploits from other MCU films to a group of large bald humanoid beings. These beings are known as Watchers, who are an alien race whose sole purpose is to observe events throughout the universe. This is in keeping with a fan theory that Stan Lee's cameos within the MCU (and possibly Marvel films that are not part of the MCU) point to him being a Watcher himself, or at least someone that reports to them as this film would suggest.

Trivia: SPOILER: During the second mid-credits scene, we see Stakar regrouping with some of his old Ravager buddies. These characters (Krugarr, Aleta, Charlie-27, Martinex, and Mainframe) along with Yondu were the original Guardians of the Galaxy team in the comics.

Trivia: When Nebula and Gamora come across the skulls, one of the skulls has a horse-like shape to it. This is a reference to the character Beta Ray Bill, who in the comics was one of few characters worthy enough to lift Thor's hammer. Or possibly Kymellians - horse headed aliens closely associated with the the preteen Marvel team, Power Pack.

Question: How exactly, in the context of the film, did Dietrich manage to have Sutler appear on his show? Obviously John Hurt is playing the part and I get that it's not supposed to be the real Sutler, because Sutler was devoid of humor and would never agree to appear on the show, but did Dietrich just luck out by finding someone that looked and sounded exactly like Sutler?

Serious B

Chosen answer: Sketch comedy shows do this all the time, and I'm sure even in the film's world, there are comedians who specialize in impressions. It wouldn't be impossible to find someone who looks and sounds like Sutler, or at least close enough that they can do so with a bit of make-up and rehearsal.
