Octopussy (1983)

Question: How did Bond win the game of backgammon, with Kamal Khan, when he didn't get all his chips off the board? Even the two sixes he rolled wouldn't have done it.

Plaza Suite (1971)

Continuity mistake: Roy climbs out the window and walks along the edge, to try to get his daughter out of the bathroom. It starts to rain so his wife puts her head out the window to try and see her husband and gets soaked from the rain. Her was wet, her "hat" was wet and floppy, but after a few minutes, there is no trace of the rain; she is completely dry. And then, suddenly, she's wet again, right to the end.

Poltergeist (1982)

Stupidity: The family ask 3 so-called ghost experts into the house. After seeing flying objects in the kids' room, they are suitably impressed. But later on, the female expert is sleeping, one of the men is in the kitchen wanting to cook a steak, and the second man has his back to the monitors, his head buried in a crossword puzzle and he has headphones on with music on, so he can't see, hear or see what is going on.

Salt (2010)

Other mistake: When Salt is arrested and in the back seat of a police car, somehow she takes control and causes a lot of smashed up cars, and hits about ten large yellow bins. The problem is: Those bins are there because they have water in them, to lessen the impact of crashes, but there was no water to be seen.

Other mistake: At the beginning, the police say, "Mona Deary is dead." But how do they know that? The car isn't hers, it's her son's, and it's in the water. It's only when the car has been dragged out of the water that they can see the true picture.

Show generally

Plot hole: When Nicky goes into prison in Mexico to give a criminal a shot of insulin, two errors are seen. 1) The needle and syringe are far too big for an insulin shot, which takes a one ml syringe and a small sub-cutaneous needle. 2) When we first see the syringe, there is a small amount of insulin in it, but it grows the more times we see it, until a large syringe is two-thirds full - insulin is enough in a one ml syringe.

Dragonfly (2002)

Factual error: A young boy is brought into a paediatric emergency room, where after trying measures to save him fail and he dies - he has no heartbeat. So they use a defibrillator on him, but that's the problem: You can not use the defibrillator on someone with no heart beat, who has flatlined. The heart is an electric pump; with no spark, there is nothing to jump.

The Book Thief

Other mistake: Page 35 - near the end of the darkened words, it reads, "it involved bashing her with wooden spoon..." It should read, "it involved bashing her with a wooden spoon..."

Suggested correction: The full quote is "it involved bashing her with wooden spoon and words at various intervals". While the indefinite article could be used, it is not needed because it became part of a plural noun. A definitive or indefinite article would be needed if the line was as written in the mistake, but the full sentence is grammatically correct.

Skyfall (2012)

Question: When Bond finally emerges from hanging onto the underside of the elevator that the villain was in, how does Bond know which way the villain went, right or left; I mean the elevator would have blocked the light?

kh1616

Chosen answer: It's not really clear - Bond saw the shadow of him stepping out but not which way he went. I suspect Bond just took a 50/50 chance that he went right, and guessed correctly.

Skyfall (2012)

Question: Moneypenny is ordered to shoot Bond, to get to the man Bond is fighting on the train, so why does Bond, later, in MI6, dig the fragments of the bullet out of his shoulder and ask them to be analysed, which does reveal that the bullet is very odd?

kh1616

Chosen answer: The bullet fragments are not from Moneypenny's shot - earlier on Bond is shot in the shoulder by the assassin Patrice when he is in the cabin of the excavator.

Question: Frank is fighting a lot of bad men in oil, so everything is slippery. My question is: What are the things Frank puts on the front of his feet, to fight the slippery oil, they are like half-rollerskates?

kh1616

Chosen answer: You notice that Frank removes those items from a bicycle frame. Those are stirrup-style rat trap bicycle pedals. They have serrated metallic edges which supposedly give Frank traction on the concrete floor, despite the oily mess.

Stargate (1994)

Trivia: The producers, the casting agents, really wanted Jaye Davidson, from "The Crying Game", to play the head bad guy, but Jaye said, "No more movies", so they kept upping the money they would pay him - this is before actors nowadays get phenomenal money - and it was only when they got to a million dollars that he said yes.
