The Gorgon (1964)

New this month Corrected entry: Medusa possessed no power to make victims look at her. That and they instantly turned to stone, not after a few minutes.

Rob245

New this month Correction: First, the film isn't about Medusa specifically. It's just about a Gorgon. Medusa wasn't the only Gorgon. However, the film only takes inspiration from the mythological stories and puts its own spin on it. Just like any fantasy or mythological film, they can add whatever elements or details they want.

New this month True but she was the only one with the power of turning people to stone. Hence why I thought it was her not her sisters. Thank you anyway, I can be foolish at times.

Tortured - S4-E16

Corrected entry: Alex misbehaves in court when the expert's explaining brain injuries. Surely no D.A or A.D.A would act like a smart alec saying "Thank you doctor, what it lacks in facts it makes up for it in pretty colors." or whatever nonsense she spewed. The judge doesn't even correct her.

Rob245

Correction: Attorneys on both sides make smart ass comments all the time, on the show and in real life. She's basically just mocking the doctor as making things up.

LorgSkyegon

Well one representing the state should be above that behavior. It's like the old expression if someone else jumped off a bridge would you? I think that's how it goes.

Rob245

"Should" isn't a mistake though. People act like that all the time.

Corrected entry: How is it Peter's spider sense doesn't work when he thinks he's talking to Fury but it's actually Mysterio in disguise? Considering he's a danger then Peter's spider sense should be going off.

Rob245

Correction: The whole point of the ending is Peter was letting his visual perception override his spidey-sense (Peter tingle), which is why Happy referred to it as not working, but Peter says it is now that he knows to ignore what he sees and listen to the tingle.

Corrected entry: Jason looks different here. This takes place after Jason Goes To Hell where he had bloodied hot pink skin, silver welded on hockey mask, dark blue boiler suit. Yet here he's wearing tattered clothes with black gloves, the original looking hockey mask, and is black skinned just like he was in Friday Part 6.

Rob245

Correction: I think this mistake is dubious at best. The canon of the "Friday the 13th" series is already pretty sloppy with the films contradicting one-another, and this film indeed also contain ideas and notions that contradict both franchises. (Not the least of which being that Jason was literally dragged all the way to hell at the end of "Jason Goes to Hell", but is merely "asleep" just beneath the ground at the beginning of this film.) I don't think it's a stretch to say this film is more of an "alternate universe/what if?" situation, and not really a direct sequel to "Jason Goes to Hell" and "Freddy's Dead," and thus minor cosmetic differences shouldn't really be considered mistakes.

Ah yes, couldn't really put it better myself.

Spider-Man 2 (2004)

Corrected entry: Doc Ock robs a bank to get funds to rebuild his machine. He seems to take only three or four bank bags, which, given the size of the machine, doesn't seem like enough to buy all the parts to rebuild it.

Rob245

Correction: Let's say it wasn't enough, perhaps because Spider-Man intervening prevented him from taking more. He could have robbed another bank or an armored truck offscreen. Showing that, however, would just drag the movie down. Since he has all the equipment he needs, we have to accept that he acquired enough money to pay for it all.

Correction: Just because it "doesn't seem" like enough doesn't make it a plot hole.

Yeah you don't really know what is inside and what seems to be inside are golden coins which are probably worth quite a lot more than bank notes would. There could even be jewellry inside.

Clue (1985)

Corrected entry: Yvette the maid is French but when she sneaks into the Billiard Room and is speaking with her killer her French accent briefly disappears.

Rob245

Correction: This is not a mistake. It is a plot point. She is not the maid. She is working undercover for the killer.

That only works in continuity with the first ending we are shown. For the other two endings, it is still an error.

Corrected entry: Given that the Foot were watching Professor Perry carefully it's highly impossible he could've changed the mutagen up to ensure low intelligence for Tokka and Rahzar without them noticing.

Rob245

Correction: How so? Even if they were watching every move he made with a microscope, it's not like they would have the knowledge to understand what he's doing to the formula at any given time. If you don't understand computers, and you watch someone working on a program, you'd have no idea if they are coding a word document to have new fonts or making a virus to fry your computer.

Wonder Woman (1976)

Show generally

Corrected entry: It's too ridiculous that nobody, not even Steve Trevor, could recognize Diana Prince as Wonder Woman given they have the same build, sound the same, are never together and she wears those silly glasses.

Rob245

Correction: The inability to see the resemblance is just a common theme and suspension of disbelief in the such TV shows and movies, so while obviously stupid, really doesn't count as a stupidity as used here (though maybe under common mistakes). Who can't see that Christopher Reeves Clark Kent is also Superman? Or Adam West Bruce Wayne with ward is also Batman and Robin? Or Melissa Benoist Kara Danvers is also Supergirl?

Corrected entry: The Lizard finds Peter's camera in the sewer with his name on it but no address or anything. Yet he knows where to find him later for their fight in Midtown High. (00:42:00)

Rob245

Correction: It's not hard to find someone's address. And Dr. Conner was friends and partners with Peter's parents, and knows Peter's aunt and uncle.

Quantom X Premium member

Correction: Kurt worked with Peter and Peter's girlfriend interns with him. It's hardly shocking that he might know where he lives and what school he attends.

Batman Forever (1995)

Corrected entry: Batman convinces Robin not to kill Two Face, but when he throws those duplicate coins later he knew Two Face would try to catch his and fall to his death. (00:56:55)

Rob245

Correction: Batman convinced Robin not to kill out of revenge to prevent him going down a dark path. This was a situation in which he allowed Two-Face's own compulsions to lead to his death and, as a result, save the lives of others.

Correction: Since this is technically the same Batman that was also played by Michael Keaton in the Tim Burton films, Batman has already killed people before. He knows the heavy price that comes with it, which is why he wants to spare Robin from it.
