Rob245

Corrected entry: Poison Ivy's hair is red most of the movie. Yet once she's a patient in Arkham Asylum her hair suddenly looks like a shade of pink.

Rob245

Correction: She became part-plant when she was "killed" and resurrected. That's how it's usually depicted in the comics and other media, and she even describes this process in a speech when she comes back to life in this film and kills the evil doctor who created her. She's stuck in a dark, dank prison cell without much sunlight (there seems to be only one small window and minimal light in her cell)... thus her body is becoming weaker, and her color (like her hair) is fading. Just like a flower would without enough sunlight for photosynthesis. Notice how she also looks overly frail and frazzled, unlike how energetic and vibrant she was earlier.

Corrected entry: Cletus Kassidy's hair has gone from fluffed out and messed up looking from the ending scene of the previous movie to neatly trimmed here.

Rob245

Correction: This movie doesn't begin where the previous one ended. Kasady simply got a haircut between movies.

Batman: Arkham Knight

Corrected entry: In "A Friend In Need" it's never explained how Hush got into Wayne Enterprises with it being locked down. It's doubtful Arkham Knight knew he was in town and could help him.

Rob245

Correction: It's not a plot hole for something to not be explained. A plot hole is when there is a logical inconsistency that benefits the story despite not making sense.

The Toxic Avenger (1984)

Corrected entry: A woman's jar of popcorn is stuck. Toxie takes it, it's a jar of unpopped kernels. When he hands it back, it's suddenly popped corn.

Rob245

Correction: This is not a mistake, the implication here is that the radiation from the Toxie is what caused the kernels to pop.

Monk (2002)

Correction: Just because something isn't explained doesn't make it a plot hole. But his wife said Patrick took a $10M life insurance policy out on her, so that's one reason.

Bishop73

Correction: It's not a stupidity. It's entirely within the personalities of the two friends that Sheldon wouldn't accept change and give up something that is rightly his and for Howard to gloat over that he's a bigger deal than Sheldon now and refuse to give up something given for his new celebrity.

LorgSkyegon

Correction: Sheldon didn't even have a car. Heck, he didn't even have a license. Well, except for a later episode where he secretly had a license that he never used.

terry s

This point is made several times in the episode. The fact that Sheldon does not have a car but still agues forcibly for his right to the parking space serves to reinforce the recurring theme of the show, that Sheldon is unbearably eccentric and opinionated but still manages to engage with his social group.

Wonder Woman (2017)

Corrected entry: The Germans on the ship should've opened fire on the beach when they saw the battle going on. No reason is given why they didn't.

Rob245

Correction: Perhaps they didn't want to fire on their own troops as the ship started capsizing. Not an ideal scenario in which to try and accurately target enemies on a beach.

Well in every war America's been in cannons are firing even as troops are engaged on the battlefield.This was also quite risky and necessary, hence why I brought this up.

Rob245

It is not customary to fire on your own troops. Not in any war. Highly rarely it is inevitable, but not in this scenario.

lionhead

That is not standard practice, and the ship was sinking at the same time. The crew had other things to worry about.

Batman Returns (1992)

Corrected entry: There are several biker clowns not beaten by Batman early in the movie, but they disappear for the rest of it.

Rob245

Correction: Not sure how this is a mistake, just because those henchmen were not featured later in the film.

On top of that, the bikers were wearing skull masks. There's no way of knowing whether or not they were still in the film unmasked later on.

Phaneron Premium member

Corrected entry: The movie's plot of a magic wishing stone seems to have been inspired by Gary K. Wolf's book Who Censored Roger Rabbit where a lantern granted wishes. Both though did/appear to be a great cost/reversal of fortune.

Rob245

Correction: Considering the story of Aladdin involves a magical object leading to wishes being granted, connecting it to a specific book is a stretch. It's been a storytelling device for hundreds of years, if not longer.

Halloween (1978)

Corrected entry: Possibly to avoid being gory, Michael, who's just been unmasked by his father, has a clean butcher knife despite having stabbed Judith multiple times.

Rob245

Correction: This is incorrect. It's a little hard to see, but if you pay attention, there is some blood on the bottom edge of the knife when the camera cranes back. Look up the YouTube video "Halloween 1978 - Young Michael Myers" and watch around 1:45 through the end of the video - blood is definitely visible on the knife.

Dave (1993)

Correction: When there is a vacancy in the office of Vice President, the President nominates an individual as Vice President, upon approval of Congress. There isn't a Vice President line of succession.

Bishop73

Corrected entry: During the bar fight notice two women, a blonde and a brunette, they're ready to use beer bottles with the blonde's back to the audience. Then, once Sonic has tied everyone's legs together, they've suddenly switched places.

Rob245

Correction: Background is different in these two shots, so they didn't switch places but merely were shot from the opposite angles.

The Golden Girls (1985)

Correction: Whether it's officially legal or not, a couple can still organize a ceremony and treat it as a wedding. The brother and his boyfriend would consider themselves married.

Correction: It's not a plot hole for something to not be revealed. A plot hole is an inconsistency that goes against the logic established by the story.

Spider-Man (1994)

Correction: This is a common trope in superhero stories and falls under suspension of disbelief. Spider-Man doesn't disguise his voice either, but no-one he also knows as Peter Parker recognizes it's him. Clark Kent's disguise is nothing more than a pair of glasses, but it fools everybody. Batman's lower half of his face is visible and people should also be able to deduce that being Batman would require a lot of wealth, in addition to recognizing that Robin is actually Bruce Wayne's ward since he only covers his eyes, etc.

The Dark Knight (2008)

Correction: As bad as the Joker is, Batman would never falsely accuse anyone of a crime they didn't commit. Plus, Joker was in custody at the time, so people could become suspicious the police are lying about the murders. But it also sets up a new persona for Batman to put fear into Gotham's criminals. He is now seen as a vigilante willing to kill. And it sets up Harvey Dent to be the hero.

Sleepaway Camp (1983)

Corrected entry: Given Angela's really Peter it's never revealed how he could mask his male voice. Unlikely his aunt could've taught him how to sound more feminine.

Rob245

Correction: Just because something is "unlikely" doesn't mean it's a mistake. It's not outside of the realm of possibility, hence it's not a mistake. His (very crazy) aunt has been forcing him to look and act like a girl. She's probably just conditioned him to speak with a lighter, more feminine voice. It's not exactly hard to impersonate a softer female voice. (I have a friend who does it all the time as part of his drag act.) You also have to factor in that Angela/Peter is still a child, and children naturally have softer, higher-pitched voices anyways.

TedStixon

Corrected entry: It doesn't seem likely the turtles would stick around the club after their fight with Super Shredder to get their picture taken.

Rob245

Correction: This is not a movie mistake. Nothing about them sticking around longer than they should constitutes a mistake.

TedStixon

Corrected entry: When Super Shredder emerges the turtles say he drank the last of the ooze. Impossible as he was blasted through the air, landing in the water. It would've broken, he might've dropped it too, either of those, and he'd have to pull off his helmet's mouth part.

Rob245

Correction: Nothing about this is a mistake. You're speculating and using too much conjecture for this to be considered a mistake. Suggesting that "it would've broken" or "he might have dropped it" are not mistakes. That's you guessing. And him having to briefly remove his mask to drink it is not a mistake. He could have easily pulled it off then put it back on, or simply poured it through the grating on his mask.

Falling Down (1993)

Corrected entry: During the golf course scene watch the guy clutching his chest having a heart attack. He clutches the right side instead of the left.

Rob245

Correction: It should also be pointed out that the clutching of the left side in a dramatic fashion is a Hollywood thing. Your heart is located in the center of your chest with just a small part of the heart on the left side, so often the pain will be in the center of the chest and radiate out.

Bishop73

Correction: There's no mistake here. He's having a heart attack. He's panicked and clutching his chest. There's no rule that you have to clutch the exact right spot on your chest while having a heart attack.
