Suggested correction: Archimedes was trying to be helpful when he pointed out the sword so Merlin could take it to the tournament. But after it became a big issue with the rays from heaven and the legend, Archimedes thought he might get in trouble so tried to act innocent by fibbing. It was deliberate and in character, not a character mistake.


Character mistake: Given Billy still remembered and recognized him it seems strange Kate doesn't when she mistakes Daffy for Gizmo.

Suggested correction: Billy spent significantly more time bonding with Gizmo in the first movie - days and days. By contrast Kate had very little actual time with him.

Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013)

Character mistake: The Sheriff calls for Drayton Sawyer to bring out his son Jed (Leather Face) in the movie's opening scene. But it's long been established that they're brothers.

Suggested correction: This is meant to be a direct sequel to the original film, and ignores the other sequels. And if memory serves correctly, the first movie never made any mention of them being brothers. (I just checked and the Texas Chainsaw fandom Wiki backs this up - the original film makes no reference to them being brothers.) So therefore, it is not a mistake if this movie re-writes him as being Leatherface's father.
