Other mistake: When the submarine surfaces from beneath Lara, from the submarine's angle it looks like the sub is just coming up and will then level out. But we can see the submarine stays at this angle. And in the next shot we can see Lara resting towards the aft rudder. If the submarine would rise at such an angle with the aft rudder just surfacing, basically the complete submarine would be almost out of the water. This angle and Lara's position would only be possible, if she came to rest at the front side of the sub's sail.

Other mistake: On the clock that shows 12:05 (just before the basketball team and the science club start their coup) the second hand isn't moving.

Red Planet (2000)

Other mistake: As the ground team are on their way to the mars base camp, Carrie-Anne Moss' character is also searching for the base camp via a fixed camera on MARS-1. As the camera finds the destroyed camp, the view switches between various angles/viewpoints from around the camp. These views would be impossible to take from the camera(s) on MARS-1.

Ice Age (2002)

Other mistake: After Scrat's landing you can see three pair of feet who are stomping on him. At least two of the three pairs belong to tetrapod vertebrates (as can be seen when the camera pans up to behind the herd), so where is the second pair of their respective owner's feet? (00:03:10)

Other mistake: At the end of the film, Dean can see himself in his TV. He looks up to the fire alerter, assuming the camera filming him is up there. The film camera then also pans up to the fire alerter, indicating the camera is there, too. For this angle, the picture in the TV is wrong, as it is taken from the point of view of the TV.

Van Helsing (2004)

Other mistake: When Igor tortures the Werewolf behind the canvas, both of them can be seen as shadows, meaning a source of light is creating these images. When Igor hits the Werewolf with his staff, sparks can be seen through the canvas. First, as the image is a projection, the sparks would appear somewhere else on the canvas, and not exactly on the position of the staff's projected image. Even if the images are just silhouettes, the angle of the shot and the visible pillars indicate a much larger size then Igor really is. Second, such an intense source of light would alter the projection of the shadows a lot, not just a little bit in front of the Werewolf. In the case of silhouettes, they would completely disappear, as the source of light is between the 2 actors, and not at the side of them.
