Blood Money picture

Arbitrage picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene near the end of the movie where Ellen Miller asks Robert Miller to lift up his shirt, and then slaps him in the stomach with a newspaper, we see that his right shoulder suspender is properly positioned, however in the next shot from behind him his suspender over his right shoulder appears to be twisted 180 degrees. As he turns to walk into the inner bedroom the suspender is once again back to a proper fit.

The Company You Keep picture

Factual error: In the scene where Robert Redford is hiding in his car in dealer's lot, the FBI say they have him tracked and located, "Got him. Just off I-94 near Gurnee, IL." Redford may be in Gurnee, but the local police speeding to catch him are not: The area around Gurnee is flat as a pancake, yet the police drive by many tall hills and/or small mountains. (01:09:00)

Bait picture

Factual error: When the underground garage of the market is flooded, the car that Kyle and Heather are in does not flood. A car is not water tight like a submarine. Even though the water does not cover the top of the car, water would flood the entire car within minutes.

Sparkle picture

Visible crew/equipment: At the end of the movie when Sparkle is on stage singing in her red dress, a camera shot pans upward toward the ceiling on the stage. There is a cameraman backstage walking on a rafter or something, trying to run so as to not get caught on film, but fails.

Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning picture

Continuity mistake: In the underground lab, Dr. Su offers to surgically remove the false memories he implanted in John's brain. He drills a half-inch hole in the right side of John's forehead, which leaves the right side of his face covered in flowing blood. John can't stand the pain, breaks free, and he goes on a rampage throughout the underground bunker, killing every UniSol in his path. As he fights his way through the bunker, the bleeding hole in John's head switches from the right side of his forehead to the left side, then back to the right side again. Also, in the last scene (an unspecified amount of time after the bunker brawl), John has no scar on his forehead at all.

Collision Course picture

Other mistake: After the medical student leaves the unconscious co-pilot to one of the other passengers to watch while he goes to the bathroom, she notices his hands grow cold after a bit. It is only then they realise he has stopped breathing, and then get a defibrillator out and are successfully able to use it to revive him with CPR as well. However if he has stopped breathing for long enough that his hands have started to get cold, he would already be way too far gone to be able to be revived.
