    watching Field of Dreams, Shoeless Joe Jackson in real life batted left and threw right. In the movie he throws left and bats right. Nice job by the research crew. Name some other mess ups.

    In Djhango Unchanied there is no real reason Jamie Fox's character needs to go to Leo's house to buy that slave. All that had to happen was Waltz just needed to say he was looking for a slave that speaks German name your price...All of the drama would have been avoided.

    (sorry I don't know the real characters names)

    How is that a plot flaw (plot hole) and not just an inaccuracy that had no bearing on the plot. Is was probably done to accommodate Ray Liotta.

    star wars '77 - why didn't the death star just blow up the gas giant planet (yavin) that the moon with the rebel base on it (yavin 4) orbited? the resultant shock wave would have obliterated anything orbiting. all the death star had to do was enter the system, take the shot and the issue is resolved.

    Couple of whoppers for me:

    Shawshank Redemption-- yeah, hiding a gigantic hole in the wall of your cell with a POSTER makes sense. I'm sure no guard would have detected that.

    Saving Private Ryan-- we're flashing back to everything that happened via Ryan (Matt Damon's) memory. Yet Ryan isn't in the first half of the movie... so how is he remembering all of this stuff with Tom Hanks, et al?

    Speaking of the Death Star. How can you have a moon sized planet destroyer and make it so that you can destroy the whole thing because you have a 2x2 foot hole in it that is susceptible to a depth charge from X Wing fighter?

    The bigger problem is the poster is perfectly tacked up on the wall after Andy escapes. How did he do that from inside the hole going in head first.

    Raiders of the Lost Ark:

    Indiana Jones plays no role in the outcome of the story. If he weren’t in the film, it would turn out exactly the same… If he weren’t in the movie, the Nazis would still have found the Arks, taken it to the island, opened it up, and all died, just like they did.

    empire strikes back - a movie i LOVE btw - Luke goes to Dagoba, wrecks his shit, messes around for a while until yoda finally reveals and they have dinner before begining training. meanwhile, han and leia are getting chased around by the empire, almost get eaten by a space worm, high tail it to landos where they get caught. now all of their adventures either took a month or 2 OR Luke got all trained up in only a couple of days.
