Question: When Harry finds the Sword of Godric Gryffindor in the frozen lake, why doesn't he just use the Wingardium Leviosa spell to levitate it out of the lake instead of diving in to get it himself? I assume that this is how J.K. Rowling wrote it in the book, but does this still count as a mistake?

Question: Buffy supposedly killing Angel in Season 2, in the episode "Becoming part 2", when she impales him with a sword shortly after he gets his soul back. However, in BtVS you can only kill a vampire via wooden stakes, direct sunlight, holy water, and decapitation. Is this ever fully explained?
Question: If Seibertron/Cybertron is an alien planet where the transformers originated from, why are some named after earth things, like Bumblebee? Are there earth insects there too? Bumblebee was called that even before he came to earth. Bonecrusher is another example, Transformers do not have what we call bones. Do they also listen to 'Jazz' music?
Question: I think I have missed something, but I believe, the deaths in the movie are all wrong. First of all, in the first premonition, the cowboy dies BEFORE hunt and Janet, but later in the movie he dies after them. Secondly, how can the cowboy survive if he was in the thing that was SUPPOSED to kill him? Thirdly, in the premonition, a car explosion kills George and Lori, but when Nick falls back and gets impaled, he isn't burned. Lastly,during the mall scene, before the premonition, Nick reaches the theater too late to save Janet, and she dies, but George was the last person who died, and Lori was after George. It should have gone to Lori, then Nick, THEN Janet. Can someone please explain this or tell me if I'm wrong?
Question: The hair is spread around the crime scene to provide contradictory DNA evidence. I think there was a shot of the bag being emptied. Anyone else remember this?
Question: This confuses me, so can someone please help? Kittridge thinks that Ethan is the mole because he was the only one left alive from the IM mission in Prague, but if Ethan really was the mole, he wouldn't have called Kittridge and told him that his team was dead; he would have done what the REAL mole did (go into hiding etc), so wouldn't Kittridge have realised early on that Ethan wasn't actually the mole, and that he had been set up?
Question: Three part question: 1) How did Superman know spinning the Earth in the opposite direction would turn back time? 2) It has been said that Superman is able to stop both missiles when he travels back in time because there are now 2 Supermans. If this is so, what happens to the other Superman? 3) The entire reason Superman travels back in time is to save Lois. Saving her no longer gives him a reason to travel back in time, so shouldn't this have created a paradox?
Question: Is Gobber's line about trolls being real ("They steal your socks! But only the left ones.") a reference to Lilo and Stitch? When describing Stitch, Jumba says "He will be irresistibly drawn to large cities, where he will back up sewers, reverse street signs, and steal everyone's left shoe."?
Question: Can anyone clarify the limbo in the film please? At the almost fifth level of dream, the dreamers of limbo - Cobb and Saito, 1. Who has given a kick for them to come to reality as everyone has left the dreams long back? 2. All through the Movie, they used a link to enter other's dream, but what happened to that link when they went to Limbo, can they intersect each other without any link through their dreams?
Question: When Zero shoots Wolverine's forehead in the lab, the bullet only penetrates the skin and not his skull, we can see his metal skull. In X-Men 2, the police shoot Wolverine's forehead and the bullet penetrate his skull. It's like the adamantium skull become can be penetrated. Well, it's different from X-Men Origin. Why?
Question: When the Black Pearl arrives at Port Royal, and the two pirates, Ragetti and Pintel go after Elizabeth, she runs to her bedroom and throws fire on Ragetti's head. These pirates are cursed, and therefore cannot feel anything. Why then, does he yell as if he could feel the fire? Isn't that a mistake?
