1/21. Harry and Marv from Home Alone, hung Kevin on the back of a door. Joe Pesci as Harry gets a little too intense in the character as he actually bites on Kevin’s fingers leaving a lifelong scar on the boy’s hand.

6/21. At the ending of Alan Rickman’s “Die Hard” movie, his face was in shock when he was falling from the top of the building. It was because Rickman was said that he would be dropped at the count of three but the actor was released much earlier than that.

8/21.  Matt’s existence of “The Vampire Diaries” was unclear in the subsequent seasons. He became a caring brother, a boyfriend, and then a vampire hater which doesn’t make any sense. It was because the creators didn’t know what to do with his character.
