Resident Evil: The Final Chapter picture

Continuity mistake: It was briefly stated in the second film that the T-Virus was created by Dr. Ashford to cure his daughter Angela and that the Red and White Queens were based on her. This movie contradicts that by suggesting that Dr. Marcus created the T-Virus to cure his daughter Alicia, and that the Red/White Queens were modeled after her. While the rest of the movie stays true to the continuity of the previous films, this rather obvious ret-con is still a major continuity gaff.

The Legend of Tarzan picture

Continuity mistake: The doctor starts out carrying a Holland and Holland "Royal" Double Rifle; but when he and Tarzan pursue the train, the doctor loses his H&H rifle in the leap from a cliff. Lo and behold, after they commandeer the train and disembark, the doctor is inexplicably carrying his H&H Double Rifle again. The H&H is not a common rifle, even today, and his chances of just discovering an exact replacement aboard the train is beyond coincidental.
