Beverly Hills Cop II picture

Other mistake: When Bogomil gets shot two bullets are fired, one by the drive-by shooter and one by Karla, yet there are three distinct bullet holes and a forth large hole in the rear windshield of Bogomil's car. Two holes are completely unaccounted for. (None of the windshield holes are tree reflections.)

Stakeout picture

Fatal Attraction picture

Other mistake: After Dan visits his wife in the hospital, he goes to Alex's apartment. In the scene where he's chasing Alex and crashes into the glass door, shattering it, look closely at his face and you'll see it's not Michael Douglas but a stunt double. A few seconds later when they are struggling in the kitchen, look again and you'll see the same stunt double.

A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors picture

Other mistake: When Taryn turns into a punk and walks down the alley way, you can clearly see Freddy's back along the bottom of the camera shot as if he is trying to pass the camera for the next shot. This happens as Taryn looks down the alley. However, if that was meant to happen, wouldn't she have seen Freddy, and not have been so scared when he approached her from behind?

The Living Daylights picture

Other mistake: When James is on the top of the jeep, there is a brief shot of it from behind as they go past an armed soldier. Watch carefully, the jeep goes over a few bumps and Bond on top seems to jump all over the place in a very unnatural way. This is because the footage has been sped up to make the Jeep appear to be going faster.

The Running Man picture

Other mistake: When everyone in the audience and everybody at the betting board see the original unedited version of what really happened at Bakersfield, it shows a soldier hitting Ben with the butt of his weapon from Ben's point of view, which is an impossible camera angle. And as it's the original unedited footage, it won't be something they faked.

The Untouchables picture

Other mistake: When Nitti (Billy Drago) kills Oscar in the elevator, not only is there not nearly enough time for him to write "Touchables" on the wall, but the writing looks like it was done with the aid of a ruler. If he had actually written it in the minute it took the elevator to reach the bottom floor, it would be smeared all over the place. (01:06:50)

Evil Dead II picture

Other mistake: When Evil Ed picks up Jake and throws him headfirst into the lightbulb, watch the speed that he hits it and then falls away from it; he moves far to slowly.

Robocop picture

Other mistake: In the scene in the shooting range where Robocop's firing skills are being tested, as the shot focuses in on Officer Lewis, the last cop in the row next to the wall, two spaces to her right can be seen holding his empty gun at the target but not moving it, reloading it, or firing it. It seems as if he is frozen. (00:32:25)

The Lost Boys picture

Other mistake: Max says that Michael is the "Man of the house" and won't come in until he's invited, which Michael sarcastically does, except Michael isn't the man of the house - its actually his grandfather who owns it.

Best Seller picture

Other mistake: Near the end of the movie, in the mansion overlooking the water, James Woods is eliminating the bodyguards. As he shoots the one at the bathroom sink, blood sprays all over the mirror, but the bullet never breaks the glass.

Predator picture

Other mistake: When the Predator sees Billy on the log bridge, there is a cold blotch in the middle of Billy's chest. He's not wearing anything that would make such a hole in his heat signature - it should be the same color as the rest of his torso. It doesn't even match up with the cut he made across his chest; the cut starts much higher than the blotch and the blotch is irregularly shaped, not indicating the smooth line of a cut. (01:15:20)

Full Metal Jacket picture

Other mistake: When the sniper fires her rifle at Joker after his rifle jams, she fires at him and strangely no shell casings are ejected. A few bursts later and her rifle does eject shell casings.

Lethal Weapon picture

Other mistake: Towards the end, when Riggs runs up to Murtaugh just after the car explodes, Riggs is carrying a large machine gun in his right hand. He runs up to the police barricade, but the police officer won't let him by until he shows him his ID. The police officer completely ignored the fact that Riggs was holding a large gun and could have been a criminal who wanted to use it.

No Way Out picture

Other mistake: When at sea and during the crew member foc'sle rescue, the ship's crew, including Kevin Costner, are wearing ship ball caps reflecting USS Billings (BB 1369) and the BB represents "Battleship." However they are actually on a Guided Missile Destroyer "DDG 21", the USS Cochrane, as indicated by the hull number 21. (00:15:00 - 00:17:00)

Suspect picture

Other mistake: When Eddie Sanger is saving Kathleen Riley from "Michael", he gets slashed in the chest, through his leather jacket and sweater. When they meet up the next day, he is wearing the same leather jacket. Although the front is not shown, it is the same type and colour and obviously same jacket. He doesn't seem to be the type who would wear a slashed and likely bloody leather jacket.
