Interview with a Hitman picture

Revealing mistake: Right in the beginning of the movie, we see young Viktor holding a gun to a young girl, about to shoot her. The gun is a revolver and as it comes into focus, you can see there are no bullets in the gun. This is part of a later scene in the movie where Viktor kills his first two people. As he's shooting, you can again see there are no bullets in the gun. (00:01:20 - 00:23:10)

The Snowman and the Snowdog picture

The Pirates! Band of Misfits picture

Factual error: The pirates' map shows a drawing of Tower Bridge, which Pirate Captain sees through the telescope moments later. Construction of Tower Bridge started in 1886, and it was completed in 1894. Queen Victoria was 73 when Tower Bridge was completed, whereas she is in her late twenties or mid thirties here. The sign setting the film in 1837 also makes no sense given this timeline. (00:25:20)

Milo makes a crack about Frank's convertible and Frank just fake laughs, and then looks at Hakan on the couch while laughing. It cuts to a close up, and suddenly Frank is looking at Milo and then looks at Hakan on the couch a second time. (00:16:45)

Suggested correction: I think the shirt and tie scene is a jump forward to Goosman's funeral.

Home Alone: The Holiday Heist picture

Continuity mistake: The driveway is clear of snow the day the Baxters move in. Based on the amount of snow in Mason's yard (across the street) and other outside views, there has not been a snowstorm after the Baxters have settled. In fact, the wet roads and melting snow on lawns indicate an ongoing thaw. Christine (Finn's mother) tells the kids they will be leaving to go shopping for a tree and decorations as soon as Curtis (Finn's father) finishes clearing the driveway. Curtis is then shown struggling to use a snowblower to remove A LOT of snow from the driveway (which had been clear of all snow on move-in day). (00:00:58 - 00:18:51)
