The Lost World: Jurassic Park picture The Lost World: Jurassic Park mistake picture

Deliberate mistake: When the ship crashes into the dock, all of the scenes leading up to the crash and after it show a clear view across the harbor as we can see lights and land on the other side. It's not until the ship is about to crash that a thick and dense fog appears and disappears within a minute to mask the ship to create a more dramatic effect.

The Game picture

Deliberate mistake: Every time Nicholas enters his gate at home, it's daylight and then when he drives up to the house it is night. Either he has a 300 mile property or there is something else going on. It would appear that it is deliberate as it happens many times in the film. Symbolically, Nick is leaving the world as he appears with wealth and privilege (light) and entering the real van Orton world of solitude and sadness (dark). (00:09:00 - 00:09:55)

Dante's Peak picture

Deliberate mistake: Geologically, the type of volcano in the movie shouldn't erupt so much low-viscous magma; but due to make the volcano exciting to the audience, the movie makers probably deliberately ignored this mistake.

Deliberate mistake: When Sonya finishes Mileena, Mileena's shoulders are muddy and she is face down, but when we have a close up of the dragon tattoo the right shoulder is cleaned off and what mud is left is dry. (00:42:25)

The Fifth Element picture

Deliberate mistake: In the very first shot of Korben Dallas, his bedside clock is facing away from him, towards us. We can read it, but he shouldn't be able to because he'd be looking at it backwards.

Spice World picture

Deliberate mistake: Directly after Nicola has her baby, she sits up and holds a baby that is clean, umbilical cord-free, and has teeth. There is no possible way this could happen.

Tomorrow Never Dies picture

Deliberate mistake: This mistake/trick was revealed in the second DVD commentary on the film. When Bond is underwater in the ship with the flare, this flare does not behave realistically. If they had used real flares, it would have put too much smoke and dirt in the water and quickly made it too murky to see or film through. So the flare used was a special effects prop of a bright light with bubbles being fed through it to give a good effect, but is not how a real flare would be under water. (01:08:25)

The Jackal picture The Jackal mistake picture

Deliberate mistake: Declan and Preston are hanging out at an airfield in a blue car when they realise one of the numbers in the notebook they have is an FBI access code that The Jackal now has. In establishing shot of this scene you see the blue car sitting more towards the left with Declan on the hood. Then when Preston calls in this finding and they get a helicopter to come pick them up, in the shot with the chopper coming the car is now suddenly much further to the right. It seems they had to move it during filming to allow a place for the chopper to land. (01:19:05 - 01:20:30)
