Sully (2016)

Corrected entry: United Airlines aircraft can be seen in the 2010 livery at KLGA in 2009. Also, United Airlines did not have any 737s in 2009.


Correction: United has had 737s since the 1990s.

Correction: Percy may have been referring to a different incident that we didn't see. It's true that Percy from the original book was referring to the incident from Percy's Promise, but this show is a different continuity, and "braving bad weather to help Thomas" is vague enough to refer to any incident with bad weather.

The Outsiders (1983)

Corrected entry: A railroad crossing bell can be heard when Dally runs away from the convenience store, but he is nowhere near any railroad crossings.


Correction: You don't have to be next to a railroad crossing to hear a railroad crossing bell.

The Outsiders (1983)

Corrected entry: The locomotive in Ponyboy's dream of his parents' death in 1965 is a Burlington Northern C30-7. Burlington Northern did not begin operations until 1970 and the C30-7 was not built until 1967. In the same scene, the locomotive's stripes and cab numbers are mirrored.


Correction: The locomotive is a GP30 built in 1962.

Maximum Overdrive (1986)

Corrected entry: When Connie says "I think that truck..." there is snow on the ground and on the car, but in the scene of the road (after the scene when Deke is blowing bubbles), the snow is gone. This movie takes place in June, so there should have not been snow in the first place.


Correction: It is dirt on the ground not snow.

Corrected entry: When the drawbridge is raised at the beginning of the movie, the comet should have changed the traffic light to red and lowered the gates.


Correction: If the comet changed the lights to red and lowered the bars, there would have been no damage or threat. The movie's plot is that the effect of the comet causes machinery and equipment to act independently, out of human control, and that allows them to kill and maim without warning.
