* Some of Ellie's outfits. When she first goes to Hadden Industries, she's dressed in a turtleneck and jacket, similar to how CarlSagan often appeared. When she is testifying near the end of the movie, she is wearing a maroon dress, colored similar to Hadden's suit when they first met.

* The very odd visual effect while Ellie is in the transit system which makes it look like she's being stretched one direction then propelled at a very high velocity in the opposite direction left this viewer overwhelmed by {{Narm}} for years. Until I realized that even real spacecraft use [[SpaceshipSlingshotStunt the ''slingshot'' effect]].

** It's explained at least in the book that the aliens were closing the wormhole link for a while, so they can't send someone else for some time. Inevitably they'll keep researching into it and eventually make another trip; that part is just not in the story.

* Ellie asks Palmer if he's heard of Occam's Razor. As a divinity student, Palmer would know what Occam's Razor is. He says "Hack-Em's Razor? Sounds like a SlasherFilm." But he doesn't say he's never heard of it.

* Due to the parallax effect and doppler effect it would have been impossible to fake a signal from Vega, thus rendering the YouImaginedIt ruse laughably bad. Of course, Ellie does say it's impossible. Kitz insists it could happen, but then, he ''is'' a [[SleazyPolitician politician]]. He believes that Hadden had the resources to pull such an "elaborate hoax".

Added DiffLines:

** There would also be evidence inside Elle's body. Food moves through the digestive tract at a fixed speed, and blood sugar declines predictable after the last meal (which is why you get hungry). She would have been given a medical examination of some sort just before and afterwards. In many ways she should look 18 hours older.
**And the strange and unexplained industrial light and magic show when the rings are activated. After all, if 'nothing happened', why did the whole thing look like the Bajoran wormhole?

* I didn't understand the GainaxEnding to ''{{VideoGame/Contact}}'' until I read a [[http://www.destructoid.com/review-flower-sun-and-rain-146261.phtml critique]] of ''FlowerSunAndRain''. The point is this: All the characters in the game are stuck playing the roles that the game forced upon them. The "villains" and "heroes" aren't really enemies, or even [[GreyAndGrayMorality heroes and villains at all]]. Like actors in a play, now that the game is over, they stop fighting and go back to their normal lives.
