** On the other hand, you have various websites that are also guilty of this who are attempting to defend the films by saying that "everything not in the book comes from the appendices." Well, not everything. Tauriel is a completely original character, meaning that the love triangle between herself, Legolas and Kili is purely an invention by Jackson and company, not to mention most of what goes on in Laketown. Alfrid is also an original character, as are Bard's children. Also, Azog fought Thorin's ''grandfather'', not Thorin himself, and was long dead by the time the story began, and Radagast never meets Thorin and Company.

* Armond White (a film critic who is infamous for panning acclaimed movies and acclaiming panned movies) wrote in his negative review about ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'': "The toys wage battle with the daycare center's cynical veteran cast-offs: Hamm the Piggy Bank pig, Lotsa Hugs and Big Baby." Hamm is not from the daycare center, he's one of Andy's toys, and he appeared in the previous two films. Oh, and even more importantly, he's not, nor has he ever been a villain. (A bit of a {{Jerkass}}, yes, but not a villain.) Possibly, he saw Hamm being portrayed as a villain in young Andy's playful imagination at the start of the movie and somehow confused this with the rest of the movie. Also, the villain's name is Lots'''o''' Hugg'''in''' Bear, not Lotsa Hugs.
* In Armond White's review of ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'', he identifies Marcel, the black film projectionist/Shoshanna's lover, as the narrator of the penultimate chapters. There's a LOT wrong with that statement: 1. The brief narration is done by Creator/SamuelLJackson, who has a distinctive voice to anyone who watches movies. 2. The narration is in English, where Marcel appears to speak only French, 3. There is no narration in the penultimate chapters. The two times Jackson narrates are near the center of the film. Which is of course all lost on the poor basterds who only get to see the film badly dubbed into French/German/Russian/Urdu/... Oh, and [[spoiler:Marcel is implied to die at the end of the film, as all exits are blocked, and he is at the heart of the conflagration.]]

* Before the release of ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'', a caller to the Radio/RushLimbaugh show claimed that the main villain, Bane, was a derogatory reference to Bain Capital, which Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney once ran. This despite the fact that Bane first appeared as a character in 1993, when Romney was running Bain, but the name wouldn't have had much significance to the general public. This got so bad that several people involved in the movie had to [[DeniedParody deny it]].

* ''Film/TheGoldenCompass'' was described by a TV magazine as "in a fantasy world, a girl searches the magic dust that enables travelling between worlds." Funny how the movie never even gets to that point in the [[HisDarkMaterials book series]].

* The book ''Film in Australia: An Introduction'' by Albert Moran and Errol Vieth screwed up its section on ''Lantana.'' Apparently, they chose to get most of the cast's names from the end credits instead of actually paying attention to the film, and in the process failed to notice that the cast were billed in order of appearance. Thus, they referred to Vince Colosimo's character Nik D'amato as Steve Valdez and his wife Paula as Lisa, who were the fourth and fifth billed characters, right after Leon, Sonja and Jane (three points of the film's love square), but were fairly unimportant to the story. More understandably, they called Geoffrey Rush's character John Somers instead of John Knox (his wife was named Valerie Somers), and more inexplicably, they called Peter Phelps' character Alex instead of Patrick, even though there's no character by that name in the film. Ironically, they still got most of the plot details right.

* The malevolent entity of ''Film/ParanormalActivity'' is a demon, ''not'' a ghost. This hasn't stopped some people - even people who have seen the film(s) - from claiming otherwise.
** The Netflix description of ''Paranormal Activity 3'' says it is a sequel instead of a ''prequel'' to the series, and that ''[=PA4=]'' takes place five years after ''[=PA3=]'' instead of ''[=PA2=]''.
* Advance leaks in the press before ''Film/EyesWideShut'''s release had it that Tom Cruise's character had sex with a woman next to her father's corpse. The press severely garbled the scene in which Cruise's character visited a woman to pay condolences after her father's death. There was no corpse present, and though she tried to hit on him and was immediately rebuffed, there was no sex in that scene.

** One CartoonBrew article called Bing Bong a girl in reference to the scene where he stubs his toe. This could be because he is pink and likes girly things like princesses and ponies.

* A small but still irksome example: In an article covering ''RepoTheGeneticOpera'', Fangoria repeatedly referred to Terrance Zdunich's character as "Gravedigger."
