The Scorpion King picture

Audio problem: When Mathayus and his friends are attacking Memnon's palace, there is a scene where Memnon's general rides at Balthazar on a horse, but then falls off. Balthazar holds a spear at his neck. The shot then changes so we can't see the general and he stabs him and he screams loudly. But if the spear went through his neck (as it should have, as it didn't move anywhere but down) he should not have been able to scream. (01:16:55)

Audio problem: When we first see Francesca and her family in their house, in any wide shots showing Francesca's brother, Giovanni, his mouth is not moving in sync with what he is saying.

Wild Hogs picture

Audio problem: When Damien Blade shows up at the end, he shows up on a motorcycle close to the crowd, right on the main road, yet there's no sounds of a motorcycle pulling up before hand. They would definitely have noticed him pull up and hear his motorcycle coming in way before he stepped off the bike and the crowd parted way.

Jumper picture

Audio problem: In the scene when he goes back to his home and finds his dad on the floor, he walks into the house and you can see Family Guy playing on the tv and hear it very quietly. Unfortuanately, the audio is coming from a completely different scene in the episode than the video. (You can see Lois is in the zoo, which comes from the beginning of the episode, yet the conversation you can hear is when they are sat in the kitchen towards the end of the episode.)

Audio problem: When Juni falls into the "volcano", Carmen attaches a harness to a branch and dives after him. She grabs him and then seconds later the harness snaps. It then cuts to a shot of Juni and Carmen plummeting down the volcano, and you hear Carmen yell "Juni!" yet her mouth is shut tight. (00:48:05)

Die Another Day picture

Audio problem: When - during the sword fight - the sabre is thrown to the wall, it makes a high frequency sound - like a knife or an arrow. The sound of a sabre would be much lower frequency.

Predator 2 picture

Audio problem: When the Predator is about to shoot Gary Busey, just before Danny Glover blows the door in, listen. The actor playing the Predator is counting to three before the explosion, preparing himself for the effect. Easily heard if you turn your tv up. (01:16:15)

Madagascar picture

Audio problem: Near the beginning, when the two metal monkeys strike the Central Park Zoo bell, it makes two different tones. As it's the same bell they're hitting, and they hit it at the very same vertical axis, it should make the same tone both times.

Audio problem: When the Queen is speaking to the Troll King for a second time in the mirror, she wraps up discussion with him and in the next shot she walks over to her mirror and says, "Mirror, talk to me, why haven't you found Windell yet?" The Queen's mouth moves ahead of the actual voice.

Eragon picture

Audio problem: There are several times in the film when Brom and Eragon can be seen mouthing the words "he" and "him" when referring to Saphira. This is most obvious in the scene where they have fled from the Ra'zacs and get off their horses.
