Project Power picture

Visible crew/equipment: While on the Genesis, when Robin finds Frank she asks if he's bulletproof, then Alpha 5 contacts ops to open hatch 26, and as Frank and Robin walk over to the monitor, a white T-mark is visible on the floor. (01:20:40)

A Quiet Place Part II picture

Revealing mistake: Emmet held a cigarette lighter, displaying a fairly high flame for a long period of time and even held the lighter sideways in his palm without burning his hand! If it were a real flame, he most certainly would not be able to hold it lit very long and would have burned his hand. (00:24:25 - 00:25:25)

A Fall from Grace picture

Visible crew/equipment: The diner flashback has possibly one of the worst handling of extras ever. The lady behind Crystal Fox keeps glancing at the camera and playing with her food in very unnatural fashion, but it's the guy with glasses behind Mehcad Brooks that truly shines; throughout the scene he drinks from an empty glass and, even more obvious, eats invisible food from his fork, usually throwing a glance right at the camera every time he does so, looking like he's about to crack into a laugh at the absurdity of it. It's such a bad performance that one really wonders if he was trolling Tyler Perry or something. (00:32:25)

Ghosts of War picture

Factual error: The soldiers had 506 Regiment's helmet markings of the 101st Airborne, and on their sleeves the 82nd Airborne and 1st Division shoulder patches.

Monster Hunter picture

Other mistake: Capt Artemis offers Tony Jaa's hunter character an intact partial Hershey bar that she pulls from her pants pocket. The film takes place in a brutally hot desert that would've turned that chocolate bar into chocolate goo not long after the start of the film. If the heat hadn't melted the bar, it would've been smooshed by the continuous hand-to-hand combat between the two characters. (00:45:22)

Alone picture

Other mistake: The Volvo the woman is driving has a front Oregon license plate numbered 643 ODS, but her rear license plate is 902 CSM. (00:02:55 - 00:03:45)

Six Minutes to Midnight picture

Continuity mistake: When the girls are standing on the beach with the flares to guide in the German aircraft they are in two rows just a few metres apart. The view from the aircraft shows them much further apart, wide enough for the aircraft to land between them.

The Christmas Chronicles 2 picture

Revealing mistake: During the dance number in the airport, Santa grabs a security guard who then starts break dancing. It's obvious this dancer is a stunt double as he's younger and skinnier than the real guard.

Continuity mistake: When Marcus sees his baby grandson, a nurse in the background is picking up a white diaper. In the close-up the diaper is now blue.

The New Mutants picture

Other mistake: In the credits of the movie, the creator of the original comic's name is misspelled as "Bob Macleod" when it should read "Bob McLeod."

Ghostbusters: Afterlife picture

Deliberate mistake: When the kids are about to jump start the trap Phoebe hides behind the school bus door. Half a second later, when the trap opens, she's nowhere to be seen, not even jumping or stepping inside the bus. Then half a second later she has managed to get inside, turn around and protect her head while the bus windows burst. It all happens in real time for their hairs are still fluttering. It sure paces up the scene, but it's really awkward.

The Witches picture

Continuity mistake: Look at the forehead of the hotel manager. Everytime he raises his eyebrows, you can see his prosthetic forehead piece.

Bill & Ted Face the Music picture

Character mistake: The Rufus hologram states that he first brought the phone booth to the Chosen Ones (Bill and Ted) in 1989, referencing events of the original film. While that was the year the first movie came out, it took place in 1988 (indicated by the opening title card and dialogue throughout the movie).

Capone picture

Factual error: vWhile on the fishing boat, the flag flown has 50 stars, while the movie is set in 1941. The US didn't have 50 states, and thus that flag, until 1959. (00:30:08)

Unhinged picture

Continuity mistake: A few minutes after 4:00 AM, Tom whacks the front door with a hatchet / tomahawk - almost instantly an upstairs light is turned on, and by the time it takes for Tom to take a couple steps into the house, the boyfriend and ex-wife are just feet away from Tom. The two people inside the house somehow managed to instantly wake up from the bang on the door plus travel half-way across the house and go from upstairs to downstairs without using the "vertical" staircase! The distance they covered in such a short amount of time (a few seconds?) was absurd. (00:00:47 - 00:01:36)


More Unhinged mistakes
The Willoughbys picture

Continuity mistake: Tim is showing the Nanny's phone to the others. He plays the message from his parents, but does it tapping the bottom part of the touchscreen, while the media file and its "play" button as established in previous views, is at the top. Likewise, when he turns towards Jane asking "Do you want to be taken care of?" he is pointing at the bottom of the device, but in the reverse shot his finger is at the top. (00:43:30)

Let Him Go picture

Factual error: The Blackledges' car has a license plate that starts with 34. Montana uses the first two numbers on their plates to identify the county that the driver lives in. 34 is the number for Sheridan County which is in northeastern Montana where there are no mountains in sight, but the Blackledge ranch is set near the foothills of a mountain range as you would see in western Montana.

The Last Thing He Wanted picture

Factual error: The USMC Embassy Guard is an enlisted Marine Sgt. He is wearing a Commissioned USMC Officer's cover (hat) that has gold braid and gold oak leaf motifs on the visor. (01:20:15)

Becky picture

Factual error: Apex, played by Robert Maillet (a retired professional wrestler 6'11" and 350 pounds), forcefully slams Becky (played by 5' tall fifteen-year-old Lulu Wilson who probably weighs under 100 pounds) horizontally with her back hitting the ground from waist-high yet Becky is able to get up with no incapacitating injury that would be expected. Becky also manages to brutally kill him (as well as the three other neo-Nazis).

The Wrong Missy picture

Continuity mistake: David Spade just sat down with the prankster blind date. When she (kinda accurately) says "By the way, the age thing..." his hand in a blink goes from the table to the back of the couch. (00:02:20)
