Re: Everytime I watch TWOK/TSFS...
It's funny the OP mentions this 'continuity error' when there a more blatant error in TSFS..
When David first opens the lid the shot reveals the interior to be dirty, but then a few seconds later another shot shows the interior to be be perfectly clean. That one can't be explained and is much more annoying.
It might be vice versa--first clean, then dirty, but it's a terrible error.
I just love that we're down to arguing over the mechanisms involved in opening a futuristic coffin.
Might be time to find a new hobby...
