Magnum P.I. (2018)

Better Watch Out - S4-E9

Other mistake: A man kidnaps an IT tech and steals his uniform. The IT guy is quite large - at least a XXXL if not more. When the impostor IT guy walks into HPD Headquarters, he has a very well fitting IT uniform shirt. And he is of average build -maybe a medium size. There is no way he could be wearing the real IT guy's shirt without it looking like a tent.

4400 (2021)

Great Expectations - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: One of the 4400 now has an apartment and shows off her new darkroom to a friend. It has a sliding door at the entrance. In a later scene she is in the darkroom and her friend enters. But this time the door is a regular one that swings. In truth, neither of these are typical of a darkroom, as darkrooms have a light lock entry. Either double doors or a U-turn entry to prevent light from getting in.

Red Notice (2021)

Factual error: Dwayne Johnson is pursuing a thief. He gets into a Porsche Taycan and pushed the start button, and he can drive off. But you have to have the key fob in your pocket or bag. Porsche explains: "As long as your key is close when you grab the door handle, the system automatically checks the encrypted access code on the key. Once your code is validated, the door will unlock, and you'll be granted access to your vehicle." Dwayne had no fob, as the car was just parked.

Suggested correction: I assumed the car belonged to the guy who was stood just in front of it, so the fob would have been in his pocket, close enough to start it.

Maybe start it, but since he drove away, the fob would no longer be in his possession and although the car would continue running one time, it could not be restarted.

Eternals (2021)

Factual error: Thena and some Eternals go to the Amazon. The opening scene shows the Amazon River lowlands. In the Amazon they speak Portuguese. But the Eternals speak Spanish to the natives. A part of the Amazon is in Peru where Spanish is spoken, but this is not the area where llamas (shown) typically live. Llamas are highland animals and are in southern Peru, not northern. (01:06:10)

Suggested correction: That's not true that in Amazon forest they speak Portuguese, because actually the Amazon is a forest, not a state with an official language, which one contemplates a few of Latin American countries, including Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and most of them speak in Spanish. I found an article who studied languages in Amazon forest, there are around 240 languages around all the extension of the Amazon forest. Https://www.comciencia.br/dossies-1-72/reportagens/amazonia/amaz6.htm.

The explanation for the language spoken is that they are the descendants of the Spanish conquistadores that Druig controlled mentally in Tenochtitlan. I have no idea about the llamas part though.

Well, it's just a movie. A few slips here and there are inconsequential. Thanks.

Eternals (2021)

Factual error: Cell phone service in the middle of the Amazon jungle? This scene is shown as "present day." Cell phone service in the jungle is not very probable. (01:11:20)

Suggested correction: I do fundamentally agree, but feels more like a minor 'stupidity' of the movie; the movie itself does address the point with Kingo asking Sersi who's their phone carrier since his is dead, and the convo does break in the end. There is a close-up of the phone during their talk, I believe the logo of the brand is not visible but I could be wrong - it would surely have been a great opportunity for product placement, with that kind of quality.

Several years ago, the "TUSCAN3G" project started to give remote areas cell phone access. I'm not sure of the progress made, but it is believable (or conceivable) that there could be service there.

Tough As Nails (2020)

Facing Fear - S3-E4

Factual error: The teams are at a US Coast Guard base. Two coasties are introduced. One as a chief (correct) and one as a "Captain." He is not a Captain, he is a Lieutenant. The USCG uses naval ranks, so the person with the two bars is a Lieutenant. A Captain is three pay grades above this, and uses eagles as insignia.

Other mistake: Mark is driving down the road in an old pickup truck. An inside shot shows the truck is bouncing and the scenery is passing by the left side of the truck. But the ignition switch is in the off position. A few shots later he pulls up to the research facility and the ignition is now on, which he turns off.

Jungle Cruise (2021)

Revealing mistake: Frank and Lily are swinging from a vine. As they reach the end of the swing, Frank manages to put one boot heel on the landing, but cannot get his footing to stay there. He lifts his foot repeatedly trying to get a better purchase. Except that as he is barely hanging on, lifting his boot even once would propel him backwards, much less lifting his foot several times without a back swing. He finally loses his purchase on the landing, but not because of the repeated attempts to lift his foot off. (01:09:40)

Great White (1998)

Stowaway (2021)

Stupidity: Two things: 1. I find it inconceivable that there is only one Carbon Dioxide Removal Assembly (CDMA) and no spares for a two-year mission. 2. The crew has 20 days to fix an oxygen problem. The commander decides on a 10-day window. 5 days into that window they try to load oxygen from the Kingfisher spacecraft. One is lost into space. Zoe decides to go and fill the other one in the midst of a solar storm that will only last hours. Why take that chance? A few hours wait is still quite possible.

Compass Calibration - S3-E10

Factual error: Escorting Saanvi and her colleague to see Dr. Cooper, NSA Agent Tim Powell flashes a gold badge and shouts "NSA" to the officers. NSA agents carry ID Badges, but not gold shields. Further, they would never identify themselves as NSA personnel to outsiders.
