Factual errors, nomological impossibilities, etc. in real-word stories
This post was updated on .
Why aren't there simple factual errors and impossibilities among the classification of types of movie plot holes you recognize?
You say "we are interested in factually provable problems in stories", but your classification focuses mainly on internal contradictions. Amongst the categories you do recognize, the closest one to factual errors are "plot contrivances". But some events or non-events in films aren't just contrived; they simply don't happen in the real world – which is indeed a problem when the story doesn't play in a fictional universe.
I came here because some plot credibility problems affected my ability to fully enjoy Buried. For example, the battery of the protagonist's cellphone lasts longer than believable, given the dwindling battery bar displayed. Or the protagonist is gasping for breath at one point because oxygen is so low, but then the oxygen still lasts for another hour or so without him having trouble breathing.
