Jurassic Park III picture

Audio problem: After the aeroplane crashed, a dinosaur stepped over it and the windows shattered making the typical sound of made-of-glass things when broken. They are made of plexiglass (a sort of fibrous plastic).

The Mummy Returns picture

Audio problem: When they arrive at "The Magic Carpet" you can hear Izzy drag three heavy bolts across the door, when the door opens, there are no bolts - just as well, otherwise shooting the lock wouldn't have worked. (00:56:30)

Hearts in Atlantis picture

The Score picture

Audio problem: Nick uses the periscope camera through the grate of the basement floor. There is first a shot of the camera poking out and that is followed by a shot of a hand-held screen accompanied by a camera zoom sound as he zooms. Generally the zoom sound would come from the camera itself rather than the screen and a camera that size is not likely to make a electronic zoom sound of that amplitude. (00:43:20)

Donnie Darko picture

Audio problem: During the "Sparke Motion" dance scene, the dance instructor is mouthing the wrong words to the song the girls are dancing to. "West End Girls" by the Pet Shop Boys was originally going to be the dance number, and that is actually the song playing for the recording of the scene. Richard Kelly couldn't get permission to use it, and "Notorious" by Duran Duran was substituted. The teacher is plainly mouthing words from the wrong song.

Hannibal picture

Audio problem: A mistake with one of the audio tapes: They mixed the dialogue of two scenes in Silence of the Lambs, you can hear Lecter saying "you have not more vacations to bargain" which happens in the cell from which he escapes, and following that sentence asks "what it will be? quid pro quo, poor Catherine is waiting" and other lines that are from the scene when Lecter is still at the glass cell, the first time Clarice gives him the fake offer from the Senator. (00:37:06)

Wasabi picture

Audio problem: When Hubert and Yumi agree that Hubert will tell her if he finds out anything, they shake hands. However the clap sound of their hands grabbing each other isn't entirely in synch. (00:40:00)

From Hell picture

Audio problem: Near the beginning of the film Katie Eddowes tells Mary Kelley 'There's one over there'. As she walks past Martha Tabram and Annie Chapman, we hear some dialogue between them about not having very much luck that night. If you look at all three women, their mouths are not matching the dialogue. They appear to be saying something completely different.

The One picture

Audio problem: When the MVA agents confront Yulaw in the hospital, Funsch locks in on Yulaw's right shoulder first. His gun's sights show up, being blue, and then turn red. There is a sound that the gun makes before the sight vanishes. The shots change, and you hear the sound end while the site is off screen showing the scared doctor. Then, several seconds later, it shows Roedecker's gun lock in on Yulaw's left shoulder, and the sound happens as the blue site turns red, and vanishes. However, the site from Funsch's gun is still on Yulaw visible and red, only now vanishing. The sound it made already indicating that it was gone, but it wasn't. (00:33:25)

Osmosis Jones picture

Audio problem: In the scene "By The Throat", After Osmosis goes down the escalator. The red smoke starts to go around them. Osmosis moves his mouth with no sound, but not until a couple seconds later when the shot changes do you hear what is that cherry stench. (00:20:37)

Suggested correction: I'm watching it and the scene is synced just fine. As soon as Jones opens his mouth, you hear him say "what is that cherry." Then the shot cuts to Leah and you hear him say "stank."

Audio problem: During the dinner scene, when Daryl is imitating Freddy and quotes, " Aint that some sh*t!" and also when he quotes, "You aint representin'!" his mouth isn't moving with the words.

Bully picture

Audio problem: When the kids are watching the Dr. Dre and Eminem music video on TV, you can hear the song disappearing and reappearing in the background. Some parts of the song are heard multiple times. Plus when you hear the music off screen the "bad words" aren't edited out, like they are in the shots with the TV screen.

The Fourth Angel picture

Audio problem: Mike Sarne who plays Leo Hasse, one of the bad guys and supposedly German (you hear some German bits when the hijackers come back to their hideout and speak an almost incomprehensible mix of Serbian, English, and German), has a pretty strong English accent. (00:32:15)

Enemy at the Gates picture

Audio problem: We see a Russian commander giving the order that one person gets a gun and a second follows him - the audio is out of sync. It is not another person giving the orders that we can hear, as we prominently see him shout with a megaphone. (00:09:45)

Audio problem: When Fontana says "He's such a show-off" to her friends Lana and Anna at the beginning of the movie, her mouth doesn't move.

Spy Game picture

Audio problem: When Harry Duncan calls Muer at his house in the opening of the movie you can see that he is talking on a cellular phone in an elevator, yet when he hangs up (you hear it from Muer's end of the line) you can hear the sound of a phone receiver being slammed down. Cellular phone calls end with a polite little beep, there is nothing that makes a physical noise like that. (00:09:05)

The Fast and the Furious picture

Audio problem: In the first hijacking scene, where the Honda Civic darts under the trailer, you hear the car shift up 3 times. Each time, it pulls high revs, yet the Civic doesn't move forward (at one point it almost goes under the rear wheels of the trailer) or crash into the back of the main tractor unit. Surely, with the performance of these vehicles against a laden truck, shifting up three times would have caused it to hit the tractor unit. (00:02:39)

Jeepers Creepers picture

Audio problem: When trying to hit the creeper with the car, the distance between them and the creeper changes drastically, instantly. (00:55:45)
