Tangled pictureTangled mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Just before Flynn cuts off Rapunzel's hair, there is a shot from behind him and he reaches up with his right hand to push her hair behind her ear. His arm is visible up to his forearm and the shackle is nowhere in sight. However, in the next, wide shot, the shackle is suddenly up around his wrist. (01:01:20)

Yogi Bear picture

Continuity mistake: In the second scene where we first meet ranger Smith he is shuffling with some information pamphlets. When Ranger Jones yells his name he is startled and drops some of the pamphlets, but we can see that the last ones he put in were on their side. When the camera changes shots there appears to be some pamphlets sticking out. Then in the next shot they are gone. The pamphlets change locations between shots.

Megamind picture

Continuity mistake: Whenever Megamind or Minion uses the disguise generator, their normal eye colour always show through their disguises, such as when they both disguise themselves as the Warden (the Warden has blue/gray eyes while Megamind has green and Minion has brown). However, during the final battle, Minion disguises himself as Megamind but he has Megamind's green eyes instead of his normal brown eyes.

How to Train Your Dragon picture

Continuity mistake: When Hiccup first finds Toothless, there is a dramatic shot where the camera pans over Toothless, and his wing briefly obscures his eye, which is open after the wing passes. But look at the tip of the wing. During the shot there is a stretch of rope wrapped around it. In the next shot, the rope is much higher up the wing and not wrapped around it anymore. (00:13:15)

Superman/Batman: Apocalypse picture

Continuity mistake: During the last fight with Darkseid, there's changes to what the farm looks like. At one point, instead of the windmill there's a building, which we never saw when Clark drove past the spot. And the overturned truck is missing in a several of scenes even though it should be visible.

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole picture

Continuity mistake: In the final battle scene after the Band reaches the canyons and are on a cliff overlooking the Guardians, you can obviously see that Twilight doesn't have his lute. After focusing on Soren struggling to remove the pot of tar, we see Twilight flying with Digger and Gylfie, but with his lute. Impossible to be so fast. (01:11:55)
