The Mask (1994)

Corrected entry: When Stanley wakes up to the dog licking his ear, the shot pulls back and we can see a jar of peanut butter next to the bed on the nightstand. The peanut butter was used to aid in the effect of the dog licking Stanley's ear. It was accidentally left in the shot.

Correction: We see a jar of peanut butter and a half empty bag of saltine type crackers. The scene is consistent with a person who eats peanut butter on crackers while in bed. The presence of the crackers shows its inclusion in the scene was deliberate and not an accident.

jimba

Corrected entry: When the new president talks to the world on shortwave radio, some kids are adjusting a TV antenna in one shot. Shortwave radios wouldn't work with TV antennas, they use two significantly different frequencies. Shortwave is a much longer wavelength and would require larger antennas to work.

Correction: As any shortwave listener will tell you, quality receivers will work with just about any length of antenna. I have $10 receivers which work just fine with the 24 inch built in antenna.

Wayne's World (1992)

Corrected entry: When Benjamin is holding the snake at the video shoot, a large film light is reflected in his glasses.

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: They are filming a music video and a lot of filming equipment is visible throughout the scene.

Phaneron Premium member

Corrected entry: The doors are locked in the school preventing the kids from getting out. Couldn't the kids just unlock the door from the inside?

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: Not necessarily, a lot of locks can't be opened on the other side when locked with a key. Besides, the kids panicked and didn't know what to do.

lionhead

Corrected entry: During the "Love Stinks" song, Robbie has the first man sing the main line and he tries to grab the microphone. In the next shot, he is eating something.

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: He tries to grab the mike with his left hand. The food is in his right hand even before Robbie comes over. He was about to eat it.

Rampage (2018)

Corrected entry: Near the beginning, they say part of the space station crashes into southern Wyoming. They then show a title card that says "Casper, Wyoming." Casper is in central Wyoming.

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: Parts of the space station crashed in several places. Later on, the wolf is discovered in Casper. A wolf that size and speed could easily travel a large distance in a short period of time.

Spaceballs (1987)

Corrected entry: When Lonestar and Helmet are fighting near the end, Helmet takes Lonestar's ring. In one scene after this he is standing near the self destruct button. The camera operator is visible in the glass of the button. It is clear enough you can see that he is wearing a "Spaceballs" shirt.

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: Most likely intentional since we see the crew during the fight.

Blazing Saddles (1974)

Corrected entry: When the Waco Kid supposedly steals the king from the sheriff as they are playing chess, the real king falls out of the sheriff's hand as he pretends to grab it. It still lies there throughout the rest of the scene.

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: It's not the king lying on the chess board. Bart knocks over a pawn.

Correction: The king didn't fall, he knocked a different piece over.

Corrected entry: Professor Frink says he has a machine that will burn through anything but it happens to be on the outside of the dome. Why didn't the Simpsons use this to make a hole in the dome when they found a way out?

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: Even if the drill was still there for the using, there is nothing in the movie that suggests if they even remembered it was there. They could have easily forgotten about it.

Casual Person

Correction: There is nothing to suggest the Simpsons even know how to use Frink's superdrill.

LorgSkyegon

Correction: The EPA came to capture the family so they had to run away. By the time of return, there would have already been the security seen near the end of the film.

Corrected entry: Unless everyone uses satellite receivers, the local news feeds would likely still come from terrestrial broadcast towers. The interference on the local TV stations wouldn't be present like it is, especially in the scenes with Russel being on the news.

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: Most satellite and cable companies carry local stations as part of their basic programming.

UHF (1989)

Corrected entry: When Terri visits R.J. in his office to tell him about U62, the door to R.J's office says "General Manager." However, when Stanley goes in there a few minutes later in the film, the door says "R.J. Fletcher." Both are definitely going into the same office. (01:10:40 - 01:13:45)

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: Toward the end, when Stanley is going into Fletcher's office to get away from the thugs, he shuts the door, and you can see the left door says "General Manager" and the right door says "R. J. Fletcher."

Movie Nut

Corrected entry: Right before Ernest shows the girl he can reach into the bag, he is calling her over to show the bag off. He says "come here son." Gender error.

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: Ernest says "Come over here a second."

Corrected entry: Leaves can be seen on several trees around the Griswold house, which is supposed to be in Chicago and its obviously supposed to be wintertime.

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: We sometimes have leaves on some of our trees all the way through winter. They only fall off with extreme winds.

MovieFan612 Premium member

Corrected entry: During the car chase in Rome, they pass a wedding photo shoot. The camera that would be taking the wedding photo disappears after one shot.

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: No. It doesn't. You can see when the first car drives towards the crowd that the photographer grabs the camera so it doesn't get damaged (something a normal person would do in the situation). And in wide shots you can see he's still holding the camera.

Bishop73

Corrected entry: When Paul knocks the bad guy over in the sporting goods store, he falls flat on his back. The crash mat is visible right where he lands and is a different color to the surrounding tiles.

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: In the prior scene before the bad guy is tripped with a hockey stick, when Paul is in front of store and decides to go in, you can see that the red mat is actually a carpet runner on the floor in front of the hockey gear (New Jersey Devils) Paul winds up in. It's also the same color and theme of the sports gear displayed and hockey uniform Paul is wearing.

Corrected entry: After Clark sees the beautiful woman and almost loses control of the car, Ellen is asking him what is wrong. In the windows an orange Jeep can be seen starting to pass their car. When Ellen hugs Clark, the same jeep is now behind their car, not passing them.

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: When Ellen leans over to Clark near the end of the shot, that is not the orange jeep behind them. It looks like a reddish truck with a white camper or trailer.

Chronicle (2012)

Corrected entry: The three characters are playing with Legos near the beginning of the film. They are sitting next to a mirror, and we see Andrew building his Lego structure. Andrew is reflected in the mirror but the Lego structure is not, indicating the use of CGI.

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: Matt is sitting in front of the mirror in the position where the reflection of the Lego would be, and therefore obscures the view at that position.

The Simpsons (1989)

Correction: It does change, but if that scene is watched carefully, the force of the wind blowing by the roller coaster blows the red cap off to reveal the white one underneath.

Cubs Fan

Corrected entry: Harry and Sally are talking to their respected friends (the split screen scene) about how they just had sex, in Harry's split screen is a mirror. Watch in the reflection as a crew member walks by as if nothing has happened. He actually walks by twice, in different directions. The film's director Rob Reiner walks by carrying some equipment seconds later. (01:13:55 - 01:14:20)

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: Harry is in a public place using a public phone. The scene implies that both Harry and Sally have called their friends right away after Harry leaves Sally's place. The type of phone Harry uses, plus the mirror to see the people passing by helps reinforce this theory, and thus the rush of his call. Seeing passers by in a mirror (even if they're cameos by members of the crew) fits the scene.

Doctor Zhivago (1965)

Corrected entry: Doctor Zhivago walks into his old frozen house and starts to write with an old fashioned pen and ink set. The ink is surprisingly not frozen while the rest of the house is.

manthabeat Premium member

Correction: Dr. Zhivago does not use the pen until several hours after they have been in the house and warmed-up the room. After first arriving at the icy house during the day, there is a fade to show the passage of time where it is now night and the woman and child are sleeping near a stove with a fire. The room is now completely thawed with no visible ice and that is when he begins to write with the pen.
