The Lost Empire (1984)

Trivia: Actress Raven De La Croix, who plays Whitestar, designed her own costumes for this movie.

Factual error: Druids worshipped things like nature, not Greek gods like Zeus.

Trivia: Carita is a Celtic Queen thus the title makes no sense.

The Animal (2001)

Audio problem: The horse rider Marvin speaks to says "What?" yet his mouth never opens.

Revealing mistake: Watch when young Charles meets young Raven. Look closely and you can see the zipper on the child actress' costume.

Dark Phoenix (2019)

Stupidity: It seems ridiculous that Raven acts selfish saying Charles never sacrificed to save anyone. Clearly, and I speak for others not just myself, she was there to see him get crippled saving both the whole team as well as the USA and USSR naval vessels in X-Men: First Class.

Suggested correction: That's not a movie mistake, it's the character's opinion. It's insensitive, but her point was that they have friends that have died for the mutant cause. She is annoyed that Charles continually will send his team out on dangerous missions while keeping himself out of harms way. Her opinion might harsh but she certainly has a point.

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.

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.

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)

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.

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

Black Christmas (2006)

Question: How does anyone know Billy's story? He doesn't seem like he'd tell anyone.

The Proposal (2009)

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?

Rob245

Answer: Margaret's visa apparently expired and she had failed to get it renewed, so she was being deported to Canada.

Carrie (2013)

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

Answer: In her own twisted and demented way, she did love Carrie and believed everything she did to her was to protect or cleanse her of sin.

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

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)

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

Answer: Like many reporters, she feels she has an obligation (and the right) to uncover the facts, even though it could potentially cause harm.

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.

Rob245

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)

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.
