The Lego Movie picture

Deliberate mistake: In the scene where Emmet drives to work, you get Emmet's view of the dashboard with his hand switching on the radio. The car at that moment has no front window, perhaps to make the car look bigger from the inside. (00:04:50)

Other mistake: At the beginning, when one bad guy is sitting on a bench with a newspaper, we can read the date October 21, 1959 at the top. But, we also read Nov 3 1970 on the same page, under the mugshot of the Boss being released from jail. (00:04:20)

Son of Batman picture

Factual error: After Batman hits the Manbats with his sonar batterangs and they go nuts trying to escape the sound, some begin chewing at the glass separating them from the ocean in their desperation. This is in the under workings of an oil rig out in the ocean. Hundreds of pounds of pressure is on that glass. The Manbats chew through the glass, and then the water begins rushing in. All logic and laws of physics dictate that the Manbats would be pushed back, down into the oil rig further as water rushes in. However, as the water begins pouring in, 3 Manbats are somehow pushed out of the hole into the water, and are sitting still, long enough for a shark to grab one. Even if they did somehow manage to get out like that despite physics, the water rushing in the hole would have caused a vacuum and sucked them right back in. Yet they remain perfectly still in the water, only a couple feet or so away from the hole they just made.
