Batman Begins (2005)

Question: Why change Ra's group's name to League of Shadows? League of Assassins sounds better.

Rob245

Answer: The group has often gone by different names. For example, it was the Society of Shadows in Batman The Animated Series.

Factual error: Notice the Confederate flag in the KKK meeting at night. This takes place in the 30's and they didn't fly the Confederate flag until the 50's. Before then they flew the US flag.

Scream (1996)

Question: Why does Stu go along with Billy's plan? He's got nothing to gain. That and why kill Sidney? She can't help what her mother did with Billy's father.

Rob245

Answer: Stu is simply crazy. Probably brought down by Billy, sucked into his psychosis, sometimes that can happen if Stu is mentally unstable and easily manipulated. We don't know where his instability comes from, but its positive Billy has had a bad influence on him and brought him down this path of killing.

Answer: To add to the other answer, Stu briefly mentions "peer pressure" as his reason for going along with Billy's plan. Sure, he's being slightly sarcastic when he says it... but I think that it's a hint to his motivation. He's already somewhat unstable (his hyperactive personality throughout the film backs this up), and I think the implication is that Billy gave him the final "push" that put him over the edge into full-on violent insanity.

Answer: Some people are influenced by a "leader" friend. They don't make many decisions for themselves. Stu apparently latched onto Billy at some point, and is willing to join him in the murders. There are real-life cases in which murderers had associates who obeyed them.

The X-Files (1993)

Answer: SPOILER ALERT: Hook up, yes. Married, no. Children, maybe. The rumors that Mulder and Scully were married started when David Duchovny (Mulder) called Scully "Mulder's wife" when discussing the return of "The X-Files" show. However, series creator Chris Carter said "they were together but never married." In the 2nd X-Files film, "I Want to Believe", they are in a romantic relationship. But by Season 10, they are broken up as Scully has left Mulder. It is revealed that Scully's son, William, is the son of The Smoking Man, who is Mulder's father as well. In Season 11, Mulder and Scully hook up again and in the last episode of Season 11, Scully tells Mulder she's pregnant with his child. As of now, there are no plans for a Season 12 and Gillian Anderson (Scully) has no intention of returning to her role in "The X-Files."

Carrie (1976)

Question: Just before Miss Collins dies she screams "Carrie!" I interpret this as she somehow knows what's happening, what do you guys think?

Rob245

Answer: I believe she does know. Carrie is the only one in the room who remains calm and is standing still during the chaos. Based on that, Miss Collins seems to surmise that it is Carrie who is somehow manipulating the carnage.

Other mistake: Lisa hits Mimi right in the face with the flying kick causing her to bleed, but none is on her or the mat once she's laid out.

Continuity mistake: Rosa removes her hair piece with a fake flower just after being introduced, but after Tommy's shown removing her jacket the hair piece is back on until the bell rings.

Popcorn (1991)

Other mistake: When Tobey's unmasked in front of Maggie he's badly burned. Yet his hands appear to be perfectly okay contradicting his claim of losing most of the flesh on his body. Surely they'd be scarred up too.

Sheena (1984)

Trivia: Based on the Marvel comic, it's also an homage to Tarzan only a female version.

Suggested correction: Sheena was not a Marvel character. She originally appeared in comic books published by Fiction House Magazines. Marvel later created a very similar character called Shanna the She Devil.

Suggested correction: You have this backwards. The Marvel comic of Sheena is based on the movie.

Trivia: Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert labeled this as one of their most hated movies of 1984.

Sheena (1984)

Factual error: The tigers used here are Indian Bengal tigers and this is set in Africa. Plus zebras can't be ridden as Sheena's able to do.

Sheena (1984)

Continuity mistake: Sheena goes barefoot most of the movie but near the end when she's riding a zebra she's wearing a pair of sandals which disappear a few minutes later.

The Initiation (1984)

Plot hole: When the riot and escape happen they never reveal how the girl's real father escaped, he wasn't an inmate of the asylum, merely a trustee from the nearby prison so at night he'd have been in his cell.

The Initiation (1984)

Plot hole: Kelly's twin sister, Terry, must be quick. She's inside the mall though it's never shown how she got in, didn't sneak in behind them or kill someone to gain access. She just shows up.

Rob245

Trivia: Teri Weigel and Rebecca Ferratti star in this movie, the first movie since HOTS to feature both a Playboy centerfold and a Playmate. Terri would go on to bigger fame as an adult film star.

Revealing mistake: When one character's killed, stomach sliced open, you can see the wire yanking open the prop stomach to the left of the camera.

Chicago P.D. (2014)

Answer: Because he is a great cop and gets the job done better than anyone.

Answer: Also, if you watch Season 1 of Chicago Fire it gives a little history of Voight before he goes to jail when he was actually a "dirty cop" and Antonio Dawson is actually the one who takes him down. I found it interesting and was surprised by his character back then.

Answer: And cuz he's only dirty to the bad guys. He takes care of the victims.

Below the Belt (1980)

Audio problem: Terrible Tommy and Rose exchange words just as their match begins but neither one's mouth opens.
