Vanishing Point picture

Continuity mistake: During the sequence where Kowalski is being chased through the mining buildings, there's a shot where the passenger-side mirror gets knocked off the car by a jutting pole, and the camera tracks it to breaking on the ground. But the next shot showing that side of the car shows the mirror. It keeps appearing and vanishing for the rest of the scene (when it's not there, there's no sign of damage to the car: the car used for those shots appears to never have had a wing-mirror).

The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island picture

Continuity mistake: After the dinosaurs are on the island, they see that the path they crossed to get there is gone, so they have no way of getting back. Then when they call their parents a little bit of the path and some rocks (that weren't there before) suddenly reappear. Then when they sail back on the log about half of the path is restored.

Drive picture

Continuity mistake: In the middle of the hotel fight when Toby and Deliverance go through the door in their hotel room you see the door open and a number of shots impact it. The characters then go through the second of the double doors. This is commented on in the DVD commentary. Not only do the bullets not go through the second door, they don't go through the first. On top of that, you see a shot with the two doors opened, but when the bad guys enter the room the double doors miraculously turn into just one! This layout is then used for the rest of the scene.

Visible crew/equipment: When Brad Pitt is taken prisoner by the English, he tries to escape and is thrown in prison. As the camera turns back to the door, the shadow of a microphone is visible left to the door.

The Postman picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the postman gallops by the country house full blast and then comes back to pick up the letter from the boy's hand, you hear hoof sounds for long enough to take him hundreds of metres away, while the camera is on the boy. But when he is actually shown stopping to turn his horse around he has only come as far as the corner of the premises, maybe 20 meters away. (01:53:05 - 01:54:05)
