In the movie "Anaconda" at one point the boat they're on gets stuck on a sand bar (or maybe just runs aground, I can't exactly remember) and in the background there is a waterfall. Later in the movie the boat frees itself. Now instead of filming that, they simply run the film backwards. How can you tell?

The waterfall goes up. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Any movie that takes place in Washington DC. They always get something wrong. In No Way Out (with Kevin Costner), he's running though an underground Metro station in DC and when he gets to the street, he is in Baltimore. Or someone gives some directions to streets that don't exist or don't intersect. Stuff like that. It really doesn't bother me though, it's just sort of funny. 8)

In Dazed and Confused you can see in the back ground shots some modern day cars. The movie is suppose to take place in 1976. Same thing in Goodfellas.

In Night at the Museum 2, the continuity is terrible. They skip around the Mall and the Monuments like they are all within a block of each other.

A Parsec is a unit for measuring distance not speed.

Actually, The Kessel Run was an 18-parsec route used by smugglers to move glitterstim spice from Kessel to an area south of the Si'Klaata Cluster without getting caught by the Imperial ships that were guarding the movement of spice from Kessel's mines. A parsec was a unit of distance, not time. Solo was not referring directly to his ship's speed when he made this claim. Instead, he was referring to the shorter route he was able to travel by skirting the nearby Maw black hole cluster, thus making the run in under the standard distance. By moving closer to the black holes, Solo managed to cut the distance down to about 11.5 parsecs.

Per this thing

The real life answer is George Lucas didn't know a parsec was a measure of distance, not time. So, he used a cool sounding word and got called on it. A story was made up to cover it (there are many such cases) and everybody was happy. Except of course me.

Yeah, that's true. So it's not necessarily a blunder that everyone would recognize.

Well, *I* had heard, a long time ago, that Lucas *did* know what a parsec is; he gave Han the line to show that Han was a lot about bluster and bluff, and capable of making up something that sounded impressive just because, regardless of whether it made sense or not.

But speaking of Star Wars blunders...there are a *lot* of odd continuity glitches, etc., but one of my favorite is near the end of the original movie ("A New Hope"), where they've come back from the Death Star run. Luke gets out of his X-Wing and runs over to hug Leia (actress Carrie Fisher). She shouts "Luke!" He shouts "Carrie!"

In Die Hard II ... taking place supposedly at Dulles Airport outside of Washington D.C.,
John McClain (Bruce Willis) uses a payphone with the logo of Pacific Bell on the phone.

Jack Bauer's entire romp a season ago in *24* through and under
(we have a sewer/tunnel system that runs from the river somehow to the White House ???),
is a complete factual mess.

Of course in every *24* the speed they get from point A to point B through non-existent traffic
and then easily find a parking space in the middle of the city right in front of whatever building they
are heading into is ridiculous.

But one thing I noticed. Apparent on the west coast, highway systems are referred to as "the" number,
e.g. "the 405", "the 110"

Jack Bauer refers to the Washington DC Beltway and Interstate as "the 495" and "the 95". We call it "495" and "I-95".

Jack's cell phone service is also impeccable.
