Freddy Vs. Jason (2003)

Corrected entry: In the scene where the teens are looking up what Hypnocil is, the page they are reading says that Hypnocil is an experimental drug that wasn't fda approved yet. The original mention of Hypnocil was in Nightmare 3 which was about 18 years ago. Thats a mighty long time to be an experimental drug.

Correction: The FDA does not approve a drug simply because it has existed for two decades. It is very likely that the drug does not meet FDA standards and will never be approved. As shown in the movie, people who are given a large dose end up in a coma... that's a pretty serious side effect to overlook.


Corrected entry: When the kids are having the big party in the corn field, there are cars around the small clearing, yet there are no paths going through the corn field for the cars to get there.

Correction: At the opening of the scene, you can see a car-width path coming from the lower left hand portion of the frame to the circle of cars. All the cars followed the same path in and formed the circle once they got there.

Dreamcatcher (2003)

Corrected entry: It's been said before, but it bears repeating until someone gets the idea. Mr. Gray traverses thousands of lightyears for the sole purpose of destroying humanity, manages to convert himself into a fungus cloud to infect humans or move around more easily, but *cannot* lift a sewer cover before he's vanquished.

Correction: While I also found this to be a contrived way of delaying the climax until the heroes arrived, there is a (weak) basis for this. Mr. Grey travelled to Earth with the help of spacecraft, and the dust cloud is one of the forms he assumes (in addition to his true alien form, the form of a stereotypical "grey" alien, etc). However, while his is inhabiting Jonesy's body, he is confined to the limits of Jonesy's physical form. You will see in several places that Mr. Grey / Jonesy has a noticable limp from the accident six months prior. Mr. Grey must live with Jonesy's limitations, which include a weakened body and atrophied muscles from being laid up after the car creamed him.

Gangs of New York (2002)

Corrected entry: In the background the flag on a wall has 50 stars. This movie is set long before the USA was comprised of 50 states.

Correction: There are several incarnations of the flag throughout the film, but none with 50 stars. The most common one has 34 stars -- 4 rows of 7 and one row of 6 in the middle. The filmmakers obviously took care to include authentic flags, it is unlikely that they would have let a "50 star" slip through.
