Jack Frost (1998)

Other mistake: When Natalie is standing outside of the hockey van near the driver's side passenger door, the side of the van below the window should be about to her shoulders but is only to her waist. The side is about one foot below the loop on the back of the driver's seat, but lines up with the loop after Natalie is seated in the van. (01:15:32 - 01:17:09)

No Man of God (2021)

Continuity mistake: When Hagmaier is in the Florida State Prison room waiting for Bundy, his hair changes. Initially, his short bangs are straight across the middle of his forehead. When Bundy sits down, Hagmaier's bangs and top of head are "fluffier" (perhaps blown dry) and combed to the side. (00:11:05)

Twist (2021)

Factual error: Before Tom landed in the puddle, there was water dripping or it was raining on it, but it wasn't raining when he was on the rooftops. After Tom landed, the water drops/rain suddenly stopped. Even if the water drops were from earlier rain running off the roof or other parts of the building, they would not be hitting the whole way across the puddle or that far away from the edge of the building.

Skyfire (2019)

Factual error: The scene where the Jeep gets stopped with its front tires on a lava flow wider than the hood and a lava flow under the cargo area is unrealistic. The lava or rising heat would be enough to damage belts/hoses. Zhang Nan would not be able to stand on the Jeep's hood that long (without injuries/burns) due to the intense heat. Crouching near lava is not as hot, so a person could withstand the heat for a few seconds under certain conditions, but not minutes like Zhang did standing on the hood. (01:09:53 - 01:10:25)

The Toybox (2018)

Continuity mistake: When Steve opens the RV window for Olivia, he reaches at the center to unlatch the pane in order to slide it to the left; the right side of the window is still closed or immobile. A little later when Olivia is right next to the window, there is one pane that slides to the left, there is a screen, and the thin aluminium frame is much wider. The curtains are not visible with, perhaps, a token strip of cloth above Olivia's head. (00:10:43 - 00:11:30)

Jack Frost (1998)

Continuity mistake: The appearance of the brown house across the street from the Frost's house was L-shaped near the beginning of the movie but straight/long near the end when the hockey team van arrived. (00:09:15 - 01:16:30)

Jack Frost (1998)

Trivia: The movie is set in fictional Medford, CO, but the Jack Frost Band was performing at Denver's Music Hall; Medford would be somewhere not too far away. Denver may not be as cold and snowy as many people seem to believe. Colorado's weather can be quite varied in December, with average highs around 45° F. The day Jack the Snowman was starting to melt was going to be around 70° F, but December temperatures reportedly rarely exceed 67° F. Dec 1-2, 2021 reached 73° and 72° F (some record-breaking).

Jack Frost (1998)

Continuity mistake: When the van with hockey team members arrives at Charlie's house, there are two boys in the back seat and Natalie is standing behind them, outside the van. When Charlie gets into the back seat, Natalie is behind the driver and the two boys apparently have moved to the third row seats. However, when the van is driving away, the two boys are not visible and the third row seats are not occupied. (There is an image of an oval near the passenger window, perhaps to give the image of a boy there). (01:15:32 - 01:17:09)

KeyZOid

Continuity mistake: Before Jen gets on the yacht, Aileen's green halter strap can be seen because the left side of her hair is on or over her shoulder. When Jen gets on board, Aileen's hair is in front, covering up the green strap. The camera shifts when Lewis is hugging Jen and Aileen's green strap is visible again with the left side of her hair behind her. There is no noticeable wind and Eileen is standing in the same place.

Jack Frost (1998)

Trivia: Near the beginning, an announcer states, "That's Medford's own Jack Frost Band." There are twelve U.S. cities named Medford, but there is no Medford in Colorado where the film is set, just a Medford Springs, which is literally a spring (not city). Medford, Oregon is probably the most well-known. Other states with a Medford: Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. The fictional Medford, Texas was also for a movie. (00:03:18)

Kidnap (2017)

Stupidity: Once on the freeway, cars are beeping at Karla's erratic driving (trying to catch up to Frankie's kidnapper). She doesn't put her headlights or emergency flashers on, which could have helped alert other drivers of a problem and avoid causing accidents. She should've also used her horn to draw more attention, hoping someone would call 911 (much sooner than occurred). Stopping to flag a motorist to dial 911 would have been safer than speeding and risking her own life as well as others'. (00:13:50 - 00:19:00)

Kidnap (2017)

Stupidity: Karla tells her son Frankie that she has to take a phone call "over there" (away from the carnival crowd) where she'll be able to hear. Instead of keeping a close eye on him, she tells him not to move and talks on the phone with her back turned to Frankie. She does occasionally say "Marco" and listen for him to reply "Polo", but that's not how to watch a 6 year old? child. Karla should have also previously given him a "secret word" that a person must know before he will go with that person. (00:09:52)

Room (2015)

Plot hole: Ma rolling Jack in the rug (to pretend he was dead and then could escape from the truck when being taken away) would have suffocated him. She even put his hands over his mouth before rolling him up in the rug. (00:42:10 - 00:43:15)

Phobias (2021)

Other mistake: The way the man fell onto the hood and then the road, landing on his back, after Sami hit him from behind while going fast defies physics. He also landed too far to the left of the driver's side for being hit with the middle of the front bumper. (00:35:41)

Phobias (2021)

Continuity mistake: When Sami was having car problems, her bangs were mostly messy and longer, but suddenly neatly combed straight down a few times, such as after she slammed the hood shut, saw a shadow, and quickly turned around. (00:30:10)

Twist (2021)

Trivia: This modern version of "Oliver Twist" has an interesting twist to it: He is a traceur or parkourist (in addition to other things, such as a graffiti artist). The scenes that include roof topping, scaling walls, and traversing obstacles are worth watching.

Skyfire (2019)

Revealing mistake: A lot of the CGI was quite good and, even if not totally realistic, was interesting and exciting to watch. However, the man supposedly rappelling (or abseiling) down the mountainside was obviously not there - his feet didn't touch the mountain. (00:36:10)

Skyfire (2019)

Other mistake: At times when everything was covered in ashes, Jeeps being driven over ashes had clean tires (black tread). One Jeep that was airborne for a couple seconds (coming out of a fire) had clean tires, but the tires later got dirty. (01:04:27 - 01:09:46)

Skyfire (2019)

Continuity mistake: Xiao Meng spent some time wrapping her father's (Professor Tao) left hand, going around his wrist/thumb and under his thumb (diagonally across his palm). When Tao was blown off the bridge and landed in the dirt, the bandage was NOT wrapped around his thumb (just around his wrist). (01:12:33 - 01:16:03)

Cosmic Sin (2021)

Continuity mistake: The amount and color intensity (redness) of the blood on General Ford's facial cuts (nose bridge, cheek, forehead), as well as their precise locations, are not consistent and some° of healing appear to be chronologically out of order (e.g, freshly bled cut, scar, freshly bled cut). (00:57:32 - 00:59:34)
