Suicide Squad (2016)

Visible crew/equipment: When we see Floyd's past, he is on top of a building, lining up to assassinate someone and negotiating his fee on the phone. On the left middle, under a blanket, or something, there is another person on that roof when there shouldn't be.

Question: I don't understand the beginning; why does everyone suddenly hate Superman, and what is that alien-looking thing in the sky that is knocking the buildings down and killing the people inside, and do they think Superman is doing that?

kh1616

Chosen answer: The beginning is Bruce Wayne's perspective of the events that occurred in the movie "Man of Steel" when Superman and General Zod are fighting (if you haven't seen it, it would explain a lot of BvS events). It's General Zod's ship and the phantom drive. It cuts to 18 months later. Supermen is called to testify in front of a congressional hearing because of his vigilantism over the past 18 months and people are concerned about his actions (like the events in Africa) since he's an all-powerful alien with no way for the people to stop him, so they're very nervous. Bruce seems to blame Superman more than anyone though for the destruction and death of people he knew (and tried to save) because if Superman wasn't on Earth, Zod wouldn't have come to Earth, etc.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, Bruce Wayne drives his car towards all the chaos, but the crowd is too thick for him and his car to get through, but with movie magic suddenly Bruce and his car are at the front of the crowd. (00:07:00)

Question: How did Lex Luther find Superman's lair? I thought his lair was in the fortress of solitude in the Arctic Circle.

kh1616

Chosen answer: Lex Luthor didn't find Superman's lair. Rather, he entered a crashed Kryptonian vessel that still had a functional computer database. Luthor used Zod's amputated fingertips to activate the database, which told him how to make the hybrid-clone monster, Doomsday.

Charles Austin Miller

Character mistake: When Greg and Rose are playing backgammon, Rose counts the middle of the board as a place to count when moving a piece, but the middle of the board isn't a place to count.

Stupidity: Lecter fires the first bullet to alert the police that something is up, and the lift goes up, then comes down. Now in all this, only 6 or 7 go up the floor where Lecter was. Why aren't police sent in groups to investigate every floor? Lecter could have been anywhere, instead there are about 30 police huddled on the lobby floor.

kh1616

Continuity mistake: Lecter asks for a lamb chop dinner, rare, and when they arrive, they are rare. When we see them later, they look well done. (01:15:50)

Suggested correction: They don't look different in any of the shots. It's the same lambchops, same temperature. They are cooked as is, so they have a dark outside but inside they are probably rare. They do look darker in the last scene but that's probably because they have gone cold and dried out.

Suggested correction: How would a mistake like that come to be? Someone cooked them in between shots? Too much time elapsed and the substance oxidized? The potato and everything else on the plate look the same, and so do the chops, shape-wise. They might be of a slightly darker color in the very last shot with Boyle on the floor, but the plate has also been sprayed with blood, so that could account for this - mostly perceived - change.

A mistake like this would come to be if they're using real food and not props and had to do a cut, change camera position, do a reshoot, etc and had to set the scene again and redo the cooking of the food, or remake the props for some reason, but now the food looks different. What we see as a continuous scene in a movie or TV show is not always done in one take, which is why the site is filled with countless continuity mistakes.

Continuity mistake: As they are sitting around, planning the next job, Cobb is wearing a blue shirt, of which he rolls up the right sleeve repeatedly.

Inception (2010)

Question: When the team is twice under, I think, the bus, with all of them on it - the reality - is heading for water, it has been hit. But what I don't understand is how Cobb says, "When the van hits the water," how would he know this? He's dreaming, as they all are.

kh1616

Chosen answer: When the van hits the water it will suddenly stop, giving a kick to the passengers. Cobb knew because driving the van off the bridge was always the plan.

Prometheus (2012)

Continuity mistake: The 2 who are left behind to spend the first night there, due to the storm, are sprayed with a horrible spray when one cuts the alien creature as it wraps around the second's arm. They both get spray on their faceplates, but in the next shot the one that hasn't got it wrapped around its arm has no spray on his faceplate.

Prometheus (2012)

Question: I have 2 discs, which seem to be exactly the same, are they? Do I need to watch the second disc, to see different things?

kh1616

Chosen answer: Depending on which 2-disc set you bought, they should be the same, just a different format. The Blu-ray set comes with a Blu-ray disc (BD-50) and a standard DVD. The 4K Ultra comes with a BD-66 and BD-50.

Prometheus (2012)

Other mistake: Charlie gets up and goes to the bathroom, where he finds a sink full of water ready for him, although he didn't ask a machine to do it and he didn't fill it himself.

Prometheus (2012)

Other mistake: When Dr Shaw is in the medical "machine", and she wants an abdominal operation, a voice says, "Preparing anaesthetics," but all it does is wipe a line on her stomach with something brown - could be betadine. But Shaw screams and yells in pain. If it really is a "machine" that can perform surgery, well, surely it could put the patient under an anaesthetic that knocks them out, properly.

Character mistake: When Spade leaves Brigid in her hotel room, he says he will buzz her buzzer long-short-long-short, so she will know it's him. When he does return, he only buzzes long-short.

Iron Man 3 (2013)

Character mistake: When Happy is in hospital, two bad things happen: One, when a nurse comes into the room, she injects a drug into his IV line, but she doesn't kink the line above where she is injecting, so the drug goes both down and up the line. Two, Happy's IV line isn't attached to a pump. The nurse manually fiddles with the flow rate of Happy's IV. But the fiddling leads to nowhere, as she doesn't look at the chamber where the drops come out - this is very important, as the IV bag can run out anywhere from 30 mins to 3 hours.

The Secret Garden (1949)

Continuity mistake: When we first see the lock to the secret garden the keyhole is to the right of the handle, but later the keyhole is to the left of the handle.

The Jungle Book (2016)

Audio problem: In the beginning, you can hear the sounds of the jungle, including the laugh of a kookaburra. The problem is: The film is set in India and kookaburras are only in Australia, not India.
