Con Air (1997)

Plot hole: The Jailbird is supposed to be state of the art super max facility, but the guards don't scan the prisoners for pins, which some of the prisoners use to escape from their handcuffs.

Suggested correction: Cyrus had a pin inserted into his hand. There is no way to scan for that. Pinball had something in his stomach. They had concealed their means of escape very well. Not even a plot hole if they didn't scan for it anyway, just a human mistake to not see something that is concealed.

Continuity mistake: When Qui Gon is killed, he falls to the floor with his right arm on the floor. The next shot shows his left arm falling and his right arm on his chest. (01:55:05)

Tony

Stupidity: Batman blows up a rocket to avoid it crashing back to Gotham. You would've thought he would have more sense to detonate it whilst it was out of the earth's atmosphere So, basically, he has turned 1 falling object into hundred of falling objects. (01:11:15 - 01:11:50)

Suggested correction: Batman's bomb probably has a set time to go off, couldn't have it go off until it was higher. So he slapped it on immediately and went after Freeze. The rocket disintegrated in the explosion, making it harmless.

lionhead

Completely ridiculous correction that contradicts what the movie itself shows. You literally see it explode right after Batman exits. There's no "set timer" outside of a couple-second delay.

I said it exploded right away, the supposed mistake said Batman should have waited for it to go into space to explode, which he can't do if the bomb he planted can't be delayed. Thats all I said. A couple of seconds delay is a timer.

Escape Plan (2013)

Other mistake: When Ray attempts his first escape, he emerges from the front right side of the fire engine. When he explains how he did it, he appears too far in front of the fire engine to make it look like he was underneath it. (01:07:25 - 02:13:40)

Predator (1987)

Continuity mistake: When Mac first shoots up the jungle, he runs out of ammo. From the behind shot the barrel of the mini gun isn't spinning. Then, from the front shot when Mac releases it the barrel is spinning. (01:46:25 - 02:46:30)

Tony

Revealing mistake: When Gandalf marks Bilbo's door, you just see the outline already marked on the door. (01:15:10)

Tony

Question: During the barrel water scene, Bomba is catapulted through the air and fights a bunch of orcs, he discards his barrel because it is all smashed up. Where did the extra barrel he jumps into come from? We never see extra empty barrels following the dwarves.

Tony

Answer: When they are all getting into their barrels from Bilbos plan an extra barrel can be seen in the bottom right screen but Bilbo did not see it possibly because he just didn't notice.

Batman (1989)

Other mistake: In the scene at the beginning, when the robbers take Harold's wallet, the robber who had the gun says "American express card" but, when he says "don't leave home without it" the subtitles say the goon on the left says it, even though you can see the goon on the right move his mouth.

Escape Plan (2013)

Factual error: When Ray figures out he is on the ship, he makes it back to his cell, creating a flood along the way, he then swims through a lot of water. When he returns to his water drenched cell and escapes with Victor, his clothes are bone dry. (01:54:30 - 01:55:20)

Suggested correction: I really don't think so. Their clothes are completely soaked, like their hair and skin.

Nope...watching the scene many times in slo-mo, it's clear that Arnie's shirt is soaked, but Sly's is just as obviously dry.

ReRyRo

In the first shot when he comes out from the cell he is more than knee-deep in water, with water splashing everywhere, and there are showers of water everywhere when the shot changes: if the shirt were dry you would see stains created by the water spashes and by soaking wet Arnie leaning on him and touching him, since it is impossible for a dry shirt to stay dry through what we see onscreen, let alone the multiple takes most likely they had to do: instead the color of the shirt is uniform. Plus his hair, face, his T-shirt underneath is wet, why would they throw a dry shirt on him on that mess, and how would it stay dry? I think it's simply the light to make them appear different, Arnie is on the darker side of the corridor. However, that's just my observation.

Continuity mistake: During the speeder chase scene, Leia jumps from her speeder and it blows up, the stormtrooper then hits a tree. The camera shows the tree as a hollow shaft, but when the stormtrooper smashes into it, suddenly it is solid. (01:58:15)

Blade (1998)

Revealing mistake: In the final fight scene, Blade is fighting a bunch of guys. Before the shot goes to Karen looking down at Blade, Blade kicks a guy away, you can see the stunt wire pulling him back. (01:43:05)

Tony

Continuity mistake: When John and Kate are in the Crystal peak bunker, T-X smashes through with a helicopter, and there is an external shot of the chopper's rear blade spinning, but when T-X exits, the rear blade is gone, then in the wide shot of T-X it reappears. (01:32:35)

Tony

Revealing mistake: During the car chase scene 1 of the twins shoots through a car window causing it to flip. If you look closely you can see the stuntman wearing his helmet. (01:25:55)

Batman (1989)

Question: When Joker goes to Vicky's apartment, how did he know where she lived?

Tony

Answer: He could have looked up her address in the phone book. Just before Bruce arrives at Vikki's apartment, Joker asks Bob the Goon for - a phone book. Also he could have been tailing Bruce and found her apartment that way, after all he does show up not long after Bruce does.

Alan Keddie

Chosen answer: She's a semi-famous reporter/photographer. It would be fairly easy (especially for a criminal) to find her home.
