Resident Evil: Afterlife picture

Continuity mistake: Right after Bennett takes off in the plane, Claire throws a gun to Alice. Between the slow-motion shots, the gun switches position in mid-air before Alice catches it. In the shot of Claire throwing it, the barrel is facing to the right, meaning that it should be facing to the left in the shot of Alice catching it. But it still faces the right when she does. (00:58:30)

The Expendables picture

Continuity mistake: After the plane is docked Stallone and Statham enter the customs agency. Statham is wearing a camera on his neck with a small lens, he even shows it to the customs agent. After leaving the customs they walk across a square. The camera now has a big zoom lens attached to it. Statham is not wearing a lens bag. Where did he get that lens from? Also strange is that the lens is set in manual focus instead of automatic. Yet the picture stays focused even zooming in. This is not possible without looking at the screen. Plus the camera is turned off in the close up shot, with the image on the LCD composited in. (00:28:15 - 00:30:45)
