New today Character mistake: Tony, as a cop, should've known to cuff Rose's hands behind her back. He also apparently doesn't cuff Harriet properly as she's left outside with them dangling from one wrist.

New today Continuity mistake: When the dead biker is loaded into the squad car her head's leaning back, mouth open. A shot later and suddenly her head's turned to the right, mouth closed.

New today Continuity mistake: For some strange reason Melanie changes clothes prior to chasing Jake to the bar where he's on a date.

The Gorgon (1964)

New today Trivia: Yet another movie Peter Cushing and Sir Christopher Lee did together for Hammer Films. They'd previously done several Dracula movies, The Mummy, Frankenstein, and The Hound of the Baskervilles.

Rob245

New today Question: Why on one DVD cover for this did they remove the axe Harriet's holding behind her back?

The Proposal (2009)

New today Question: Just how could she rise up so high in a publishing house way before this citizenship problem began? Clearly she took maybe ten years or so to achieve this, so how is this possible without the immigration problem beforehand?

Carrie (2013)

New today Question: Does Carrie's mother in any of the versions (mainly this one) truly love her? I mean she's nuts but surely wouldn't it be possible for her to love her daughter?

Rob245

New today Question: Just how did Charles explain Raven showing up when they were kids to his parents? What could he think up and why would they even adopt her, maybe they only wanted one child?

Rob245

New today Answer: It is never explained, but the speed and confidence in which Charles offers his home to Raven suggests that all Charles would have to do is ask his parents if Raven could stay and they would allow it. Why this is the case is again, not explained but it could certainly have something to do with his powers. He could influence his parents to allow Raven to stay quite easily with his telepathic abilities.

Superman II (1980)

New today Question: This was in the Richard Donner cut: Why does Lois want to expose Superman's identity? That and why doesn't she think it through? She's risking the safety of his family after all.

Rob245

New this week Continuity mistake: When Carla's parents are speaking to the doctor he's wearing his glasses. A shot behind him and he's suddenly not. Then a front shot and he's got them back on.

New this week Stupidity: It seems dumb that Mr. Freeze takes part in the Arkham plot given he said when Shredder and Ra's walked through he wanted no part of anything, but when Joker frees everyone he joins in.

Below the Belt (1980)

New this week Stupidity: The celebration of Rosa beating Tommy in the world title match seems pointless as she got knocked out, Rosa didn't pin her, thus didn't become the champion.

Rob245

New this week Question: How much were Romijn and Jackman paid for their cameos?

New this week Question: When Jean Grey says the third movie in a franchise is always the worst is this a joke on all franchises as well as X Men: The Last Stand?

Rob245

New this week Answer: Yes, this is a thinly veiled jab at X-Men: The Last Stand. That film had a notably poor reception among fans and critics and at that point was generally considered the worst of the X-Men films. Ironically, X-Men: Apocalypse was also poorly received and is technically the 3rd film in the "First Class" series.

BaconIsMyBFF

New this week Answer: She's not making a joke. Sequels are often criticized because the more that are made from an original movie, the greater the decline in the quality. The scripts are often repetitive and unoriginal, and the purpose seems to be only to make as much money as possible with the least amount of creativity or effort.

Dark Phoenix (2019)

New this week Question: Did Raven ever love Charles? They seemingly teased something like this in First Class so I'm merely curious.

Rob245

New this week Answer: Yes, during the events of First Class it is clear that Raven harbors romantic feelings for Charles, though Charles himself views the relationship as platonic. After meeting Erik, Raven's romantic affections seem to shift to him and Raven views Charles as an adoptive brother. This inadvertently causes something of a rivalry between Erik and Charles when Raven decides to leave with Erik. In Days of Future Past Charles' behavior seems to suggest some romantic feelings for Raven, with Charles expressing jealousy of Erik's relationship with Raven. By the time of Apocalypse, Charles and Raven once again seem to have a strictly platonic relationship which remains in place through Dark Phoenix.

New this week Suggested correction: This isn't really so much a mistake as it was a character tweaking, which happens often in TV series.

Mr. Deeds (2002)

New this week Question: This is a two-part question: 1. How does Winona Ryder get hold of the journal of Sandler's uncle? 2. Why'd she dye her hair?

Dark Phoenix (2019)

New this week Question: Some valid reason Mystique dies early? Did Jennifer Lawrence get tired of playing her and wanted out?

Rob245

New this week Answer: Your guess is correct. Lawrence stated she was done with the franchise after "X-Men: Apocalypse." She jokingly told Simon Kinberg she would return for this film if he directed it, and to her surprise, he was serious about it and held her to it. Fans weren't very keen on her appearances either, because she was definitely phoning it in for the third film, so that may have factored into killing her off early as well.

New this week More than one actress had played Mystique. Just because Jennifer Lawrence did not want to continue playing that role is not a reason the character would be killed off. They could easily recast another notable actress in the part. I would not be surprised if Mystique is miraculously "resurrected" in a future X-Men film with a new actress.

New this week Aside from Deadpool, any new X-Men film would be a complete overhaul of the franchise since the characters will be part of the MCU now. You're not wrong about an actor wanting out to not really be a reason to kill off a character, but it doesn't preclude them from doing so either. They might have decided it wouldn't be worth the hassle of recasting the role with all the negative baggage that would come with it.

New this week Here are some candidates I think could do it: Amanda Seyfried, Shailene Woodley, Chloe Grace Moretz. Heck maybe even Milla Jovovich-Anderson should be given an audition, what say you guys?
