Breaking Bad (2008)

Show generally

New this week Question: How exactly did Walt poison Brock? It doesn't make sense, the hospital said it was lily of the valley, but Walt and Saul confirmed it was ricin.

raph

New this week Answer: Walt does use Lilly of the Valley berries to poison Brock. Vince Gilligan said he and the writers imagined Walt went to Brock's school with a poisoned juice box (there's subtle clues to confirm Walt knew what school Brock went to). But, when Jesse went to Saul's office, Saul's bodyguard, Huell, does a cigarette pack swap on Jesse when he pats Jesse down. Now the cigarette pack Jesse has no longer has the vial of ricin in it and Walt tries to convince Jesse that Gus stole the ricin and used it on Brock.

Say My Name - S5-E7

New this week Question: Did Walt plan on killing Mike? If so, why? It seems like he just did it in a fit of rage, but then why did he take his gun?

New this month Continuity mistake: In the ninja attack scene, when Tom Cruise stabs a ninja in the chest, in one shot the sword is poking out his back, but in the very next shot, it isn't.

New this month Question: Can vampires and werewolves be killed or injured by anything other than vampires and werewolves?

raph

New this month Answer: Sure. The problem is that these films portray vampires and werewolves as having super-human abilities, so it'd be significantly harder for a regular person to kill one. But nothing about the films seems to indicate it's overtly impossible.

Carrie (1976)

Continuity mistake: When Margaret has a knife thrown in her hand, in the first shot, there's no blood, but in the very next shot, there is.

Goodfellas (1990)

Other mistake: When we see the shot couple in the pink car, there's blood spatter inside the windows and windshield, so that means the windows were up when they were shot, and they were shot in the car. It makes no sense that neither the windshield nor the windows are broken. If Jimmy shot them from the front, he would've had to have shot them through the windshield. If he shot them from the side, he would've had to have shot them through the window.

Goodfellas (1990)

Continuity mistake: When Tommy is shot, there's no bullet wound in his head, but in the very next shot, there is. And we don't see the moment of impact, that wound was always there in that entire second shot.

Question: How did Cole know about "Stuttering Stanley"?

raph

Answer: The most likely scenario is that a ghost at the school told him.

Jason Hoffman

Answer: Near the end, it is revealed that Cole has seen the ghosts of teachers that died in the fire at the school when "Stuttering Stanley" was a student, so it would make sense that one of them told him.

Carrie (1976)

Other mistake: Rita is only hit in the thighs with the basketball rafter. That couldn't kill her, and it couldn't make blood come out of her mouth.

Miami Vice (2006)

Continuity mistake: When Jamie Foxx shoots a man, we see three shots of him. In the first and third shot, there's a large bullet wound in his chest, and a large part of his shirt is missing. But in the second shot, there's no wound, and his shirt is intact.

Stupidity: Lao Che's intention was to kill Indy. He had no intention of giving him the antidote. So then why would he bring a real antidote? Why not just fill it with something else instead? From his perspective, bringing a real antidote was a waste of time, and also very stupid in case Indy managed to get it, which he did. In fact, Lao Che could've brought a fake antidote and given it to Indy. He probably wouldn't have noticed the difference, and then there wouldn't have been a fight in which one of his men was killed.

Suggested correction: If you're using a poison it is always worth having an antidote nearby just in case something goes wrong.

Lao Che could still have the real antidote in his pocket and give a vial a fake antidote to Indy. Plus, if you're implying Lao Che would need the antidote should he accidentally be poisoned, it would also be a stupidity for him to give the antidote to Indy.

Chinatown (1974)

Revealing mistake: When Jack Nicholson slaps Faye Dunaway, the first time we can see he doesn't actually hit her. We see a shot of him raising his hand, then a shot of her jerking her head like she was slapped, but his hand doesn't touch her, or even go anywhere near her.

Frozen (2013)

Plot hole: As long as Elsa had the gloves, there was no need to keep her away from Anna. I know her powers were still noticeable with them, but she couldn't harm Anna with them. The point of keeping her away from Anna was to protect her.
