An American Werewolf in London picture

Other mistake: When the two Americans are walking on the moors, their shadows are always in front of them, despite them having changed direction numerous times. Additionally, with the moon always being behind them, how are their faces being lit?

Eve of Destruction picture

Other mistake: When Eve runs into the BMW from behind, the guy slams into his steering wheel. When you are hit from behind, you will slam backwards into your seat. It happens twice, the third time the airbag deploys and stays inflated (real airbags deflate in a second, they are not balloons).

Rules of Engagement picture

Other mistake: During the ending scene, when Samuel L. Jackson is walking away from the camera across the lawn, he passes directly between the platoon on the right practicing rifle drill, and the platoon leader giving them orders. Marines are taught to NEVER do this. It is called "breaking ranks", and a Colonel in the Marine Corps would have known this.

Doomsday picture

Other mistake: Whenever you get a look at the highways, they're clean. At this point in the future vegetation would've gathered on the highways.

Fast & Furious 8 picture

Other mistake: When Dom and Cipher break into Mr Nobody's base, they use "the latest in concussion grenade technology which scrambles all senses and lasts an hour" which would include vision and is reflected as such. 2 min later Letty and Hobbs are able to see the kiss Cipher gives Dom.

Capricorn One picture

Other mistake: After the crash landing in the desert, when the astronauts are preparing to head out on foot, Brubaker states that he will continue west, then tells Walker to go north, and Willis to go south. Brubaker heads out straight ahead, Walker goes to the left, and Willis to the right, meaning that Walker was actually going south, and Willis to the north. (01:04:40)

Clockstoppers picture

Other mistake: When the young couple goes into town everything is moving very slow, almost as if they are frozen. When they are looking at the Mustang, look in the background. The guy standing still has become a victim of wind. Notice his shirt flapping in "real time" and not "hyper time". If everything is slow then how come the guy's shirt is blowing in the wind?

The Phantom of the Opera picture

Other mistake: During the gypsy fair, when the young Phantom is hurriedly pulling the bag back over his head, you can see the actor's face from the side, through the bars of the cage. There is no deformity, even though the angle of the shot shows the top right of his face, where the mask is always worn later. Even moreso: his deformity is bumpy, and the side of his face is all baby smooth.

The Princess Bride picture The Princess Bride mistake picture

Other mistake: When Westley and Buttercup are in the fire swamp and Buttercup is burned for the first time look carefully at the fire spurt, it's several feet away from Buttercup and is clearly too far away to have burned her.

Tango & Cash picture

Other mistake: When Stallone stops the bad guys in the semi full of cocaine, they fly through a windshield that is apparently made of plate glass, and not the safety glass found on almost every other vehicle windshield on earth.

Cleaner picture

Other mistake: Eddie comes to see Tom at the bathroom clean-up job and convinces Tom to confide in him. Eddie tells Tom that he'll, "See what Wallace knows". There is no character named "Wallace" - he was supposed to say "Vargas", the investigator on the case. The subtitles correctly reference Vargas.

Friday the 13th Part 2 picture

Other mistake: Right at the part where Crazy Ralph is looking in on Paul and Ginny. Ralph hears a breaking of a stick behind him. You can see Jason put the barbed wire up and over the tree. How is that possible? He would have to whip it around the tree, not over it. (00:30:20)

Reservoir Dogs picture

Other mistake: During the post-robbery flashback where Mr. White has just killed two police officers, there is a shot of Mr. White saying, "Let's go." after determining that Mr. Brown is dead. As Mr. White & Mr. Orange leave the scene, you can see 3, maybe 4 men standing perhaps 20 feet away, lounging in front of a dark blue truck. For all the car-crashing & gunshots easily within earshot, those witnesses seem awfully nonchalant. (01:25:40)

From Russia With Love picture

Other mistake: When James Bond's friend Kerim Bey gets shot at the gypsy camp, look closely, he is rubbing fake blood into his own arm. (00:43:10)

Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives picture

Other mistake: In the final scene of the movie, Megan starts a boat motor and uses the propeller to hit Jason in the face, who has been chained down underwater. But if Jason can only barely reach her foot from underwater, there's no way the boat propeller is underwater far enough to reach his face. (01:17:50)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The boat was driven a good ways, it's not like they were shallow and then all of a sudden deep. They were deep for a little bit. I mean not so deep like the ocean, but it was a good enough ways for someone to drown. Megan is tall for a girl and Jason is a big guy and the propeller is right at his head/neck.

X-Men: First Class picture

Other mistake: The knife used in the Argentina pub scene never has any blood on it, despite being driven into one man's stomach and another man's hand-twice.

X-Men 3 picture

Other mistake: When Warren/Angel refuses the cure and spreads his wings, he is looking to the left of the screen at his father. In the reflection of Dr. Kavita Rao's glasses the shot of him is not reversed; he is still looking to the left of the screen when he should in fact be looking to the right. (00:33:00)

Speed picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Jack and Annie escape from the bus after they have gotten all the passengers off, when Annie is tying up the wheel, if you look closely, you can see that the gas gauge is at about 3/4 full. Isn't the gas tank supposed to be almost empty? (01:29:35)

Minority Report picture

Other mistake: Leo Crow grabs Anderton's gun and they each fight for control of it. Crow succeeds in forcing Anderton's hand to pull the trigger, killing Crow. The problem is, right after the gun is fired, we see a shot of Anderton with his arm fully extended and with his entire hand holding the entire gun, as if he had aimed and fired the gun himself. Such a sequence of events is at least totally illogical if not physically impossible. (01:44:10)
