Calcs in films: The Amazing Spider-Man - BruceH - 07-08-2012

Has a scene in which Peter Parker finds an old briefcase belonging to his long-vanished father. Before discovering the hidden secret formula, Peter lays out the contents on the floor of his room, prominently displaying a purple & teal HP48GX.

Inexplicably, the writers passed on the opportunity to have Peter discover the formula stored in the calculator itself. ;-)

Being writers, they probably couldn't figure out how to turn it on...

It may be assumed that Spiderman knows RPN.

HEY! Why didn't they call us during the sneak preview, pre-release screening? If the studio did that, we would've spotted the continuity goof and the scene could've been re-shot and then the released film would be TECHNICALLY accurate.

That's what happened at the screening for 'Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.' After the test screening, fans were so upset that Spock dies in the end that the entire last segments had to be re-scripted and re-shot with the revisions where Spock's tube is shot onto Genesis. And thus, 'Star Trek III' was born.
