Halloween 4 (1988)

Trivia: The poster features a different mask for Myers, closer to the original one. The one he wears in the movie is quite different.

The Golden Girls (1985)

Fiddler on the Ropes - S4-E18

Other mistake: There's a lot of talk about Pepe hurting his hands during his last boxing match. Unless there's something I'm missing, boxing gloves should provide adequate protection.

Question: Depending on child labor laws just how did they get the young Diana actress to do her own stunts?

Rob245

Answer: Lily Aspell, (young Diana), performed many of her own stunts. She is naturally athletic and was already an expert equestrian rider (her parents and uncle are professional jockeys). Stunts are carefully coordinated, and she would never have been allowed to do anything dangerous. Stunt doubles perform the more dangerous action scenes. Often, CGI superimposes an actor's face over a stunt double's body. Safety harnesses and suspension cables are used and later removed digitally. Actors also perform many scenes in front of a "green screen" and special effects are added later to look like an extreme environment. I once observed a movie scene being shot. What looked like a wild car chase in the move was actually filmed with the vehicles driven at slow speed. The action was sped up during the editing process.

Thanks brother. Regardless of it being a hilariously "so bad it's good to watch and laugh at"movie I was concerned for the child. All the best and have a nice day.

You're welcome, and I'm a "sister." :-).

Answer: Rosie O'Donnell auditioned for the role of Marla, but lost it. Penny Marshal thought she was a good actress and so funny she created the role of Doris for her. As for Madonna, she was like all singers getting offered movie roles. She was very popular back in the 90's, but reportedly a total diva to work with.

The Mummy (1959)

Plot hole: Unless I'm missing something when Stephen Banning reads from The Scroll of Life, not only should Kharis have come back to life but so should Princess Ananka since her sarcophagus was open.

Wonder Woman 1984 (2020)

Continuity mistake: When the flashback with Asteria is shown she's got hazel or green eyes. In the post credits scene when played by Lynda Carter she's got light blue eyes.

Suggested correction: It should be noted, Lynda Carter played both parts. Those are literally Lynda Carter's eyes we see in the flashback.

Bishop73

Still doesn't explain why they are green in the flashback. Lynda Carter has blue eyes. Probably caused by a color filter.

It could be a lighting issue or the way the armor made her eyes look different, but it's not a mistake since it's the same color eyes. (There are optical illusions that make some people see one color as two different colors based on the surrounding color).

Wonder Woman 1984 (2020)

Other mistake: It's amazing the guy whose body Steve is inhabiting gets into the party. Clearly it's VIP and formal dress while he's dressed in casual clothes.

Below the Belt (1980)

Plot hole: Given Rosa just started wrestling it seems unlikely she'd get a world title match so soon. That and when she bit Tommy on the lip she should've been disqualified.

Street Fighter (1994)

Trivia: Vega wears his claw on his right hand yet on the poster it's on his left hand.

Prime Cut (1972)

Trivia: Sissy Spacek as Poppy never once wears the outfit she's shown wearing on the DVD box art. This is either a publicity still or it came from another movie of hers, The Badlands.

Question: During the Nazi rally books are being burned. Why and what kind are they?

Rob245

Answer: This is from Wikipedia on what type of books Nazis wanted burned: The books targeted for burning were those viewed as being subversive or as representing ideologies opposed to Nazism. These included books written by Jewish, communist, socialist, anarchist, liberal, pacifist, religious, and sexologist authors among others.

Wonder Woman 1984 (2020)

Question: Why is Asteria living among regular people? She couldn't return home?

Rob245

Answer: This was not explained in WW84, so any answer would be speculation. It is rumored that Lynda Carter, who played Asteria, may appear in Wonder Woman 3, which will hopefully explain her backstory. She is probably similar to Diana, who also chose to live among regular humans, secretly using her powers for good.

House, M.D. (2004)

Role Model - S1-E17

Question: Could the woman going to her ex's while in a sleepwalking state and having sex with him have him arrested?

Rob245

Answer: She could if her ex knew she had this condition and she was at that time in an incapacitated or altered mental state where she could not knowingly give consent to any sexual activity. She would, however, have to prove that she was sleepwalking at the time.

Rocky V (1990)

Answer: Yes, it was a variation of him.

Justice League (2017)

Answer: To start, oftentimes it's hard to establish a Green Lantern character without establishing a vast "universe." You have the Green Lantern Corp filled with thousands of aliens from across the galaxy, the Guardians, a power ring that creates virtually anything, etc. It's easier to do this in animation over live-action. Ryan Reynolds' "Green Lantern" film underperformed and future projects were scrapped, failing to set-up a Green Lantern universe. So when Warner Bros. Set up the DCEU, they went with Superman (from the "Man of Steel" film). After DC's "New 52", Cyborg became a founding member of the Justice League (along with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman, and Green Lantern). So it's not that film makers replaced Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) with Cyborg, they simply left Green Lantern out.

Wonder Woman 1984 (2020)

Answer: When Barbara Minerva wished to be just like Diana, she was granted the same strength and powers as Wonder Woman. Barbara additionally became less humane and even more powerful and dangerous after morphing into "Cheetah." Diana needed the armor to outmatch and defeat Barbara. She was also expecting to fight a multitude of soldiers to get to Max. The armor was originally Asteria's, who needed the extra protection when she battled an army to save the other Amazons.

Jennifer's Body (2009)

Continuity mistake: When Needy floats up to her cell's window she's in an orange prison uniform. Yet when she's broken out, storming across the grounds she's suddenly gained a sleeveless hoodie.

Rob245

Answer: It's never specified, but 40 actors were credited with being members.
