Spider-Man 2 (2004)

Deliberate mistake: Perhaps to avoid getting an R rating or parental complaints notice how in the operating room massacre none of the doctors appear to bleed nor do Doc Ock's tentacles have blood on them.

Suggested correction: The problem is in both versions of the film, basically all of the deaths either happen off-camera, or are things like people being shocked to death or killed by being tossed around and presumably having their backs/necks broken. Most of the deaths would be bloodless or near-bloodless anyways, and the camera simply doesn't linger on the bodies enough to show any blood. This is also why the tentacles aren't really bloody. Sure, it was probably ratings-related, but it isn't technically a mistake.

Batman: Arkham Knight

Continuity mistake: This is in the same universe as the other Arkham games yet Poison Ivy's gone from being green in Arkham Asylum and Arkham City to being just regular looking in this game.

Species (1995)

Other mistake: It's impossible for Sil to wear the conductor's clothes. She's tall and slim around maybe 5'9" while the conductor looks to be 5'5"or so and a little chubby.

Suggested correction: It's not "impossible" in the slightest. Both women were roughly the same height. Natasha Henstridge is about 5'10" and Esther Williams was usually listed around 5'9" or 5'10" before she passed away. And the weight difference also makes sense, as the clothes look baggy and ill-fitting on Sil. (Ex. The jacket is very loose and hanging around her shoulders and arms, and the shirt isn't nearly as form-fitting as it was on the conductor.) It's pretty much perfectly portrayed in the film.

I Love Lucy (1951)

Breaking the Lease - S1-E18

Revealing mistake: When Fred and Ethel come with parts of their apartment's ceiling on them look closely at Ethel. The piece on her left shoulder falls off revealing what looks like a velcro pad to keep it in place.

Insurgent (2015)

Continuity mistake: Divergent and Insurgent take place after one another it makes no sense that Jeanine goes from wearing dark blue to a lighter blue as she does here.

Trivia: It was said Director Lenzi considered this movie to be a carbon copy of his earlier movie Seven Blood Stained Orchids.

Below the Belt (1980)

Okay my mistake but did they decline returning or what?

Answer: To add to the previous answer, Elisabeth Shue went back to Harvard to continue her studies which is why she doesn't appear in the sequel.

Answer: Ali was originally only supposed to have a very small role in Part 2. Elizabeth Shue declined to reprise the role because she was studying at Harvard at the time. I can't find any explanation online as to why Randee Heller was not in Part 2 and was barely in Part 3.

Answer: Like all studio executives they think mixing things up by bringing in new characters into different settings would keep the franchise fresh. Most of the sequels from the 1980's were given minor or major cast changes.

Nightmare Beach (1989)

Trivia: The DVD box for the movie has the alternate title Welcome To Spring Break.

Continuity mistake: When Ricky's shown sitting during his psychiatrist's interview the chair's only two or three feet away from the desk. A shot or two later and it's suddenly closer to the room's wall.

Rob245

Plot hole: It seems unlikely an inmate of the asylum where Ricky's being kept would be allowed to carry a cigarette lighter.

Rob245

Continuity mistake: When Alex is walking around nude in just high heels watch carefully. They seem to come and go during the gun battle.

Rob245

Stupidity: It's a mystery how the guards never noticed Grear and Collins sneaking to a private spot for their fight while the inmates were working in the sugarcane field. They're never shown being caught.
