Goldeneye (1995)

Corrected entry: The direction of the train hostage scene is all wrong. After the train crashes into the tank, 007 enters and beats Trevelyan to the gun on the ground, he then holds Trevelyan and Xenia at gunpoint. General Ourumov then enters the scene again, behind Bond, holding Natalya hostage himself, at gunpoint. As Bond and Alec Trevelyan negotiate the situation, Ourumov just stands patiently with a gun, all while Bond still has his back to him.. what is to negotiate? Ourumov can blow 007 away at any time and still James Bond pays him little to no attention, always keeping his gun focused on the unarmed pair 10+ feet away from him. (01:28:36)

Correction: I think it can be assumed Bond knows full well what Ourumov is up to behind his back, considering how quickly he does turn and kill him when he gets round to it. Plus, Ourumov is waiting for a signal from Trevelyan (which is delivered by a quick flick of his head after he says "See you in hell, James"), so it can be assumed he's been ordered not to kill until then.

Your explanation doesn't make my point any less valid. It's all "Hollywood" and I get that.

Erin Brockovich (2000)

Corrected entry: In the scene where the car hits Julia Roberts, some extras start running away from the accident before the car even comes speeding by. (00:03:37)

Correction: I've watched the scene 3 times, everything looks normal. There are 3 people running across the street but once they get across they walk normally again. After the crash, they react to it accordingly.

Pulp Fiction (1994)

Corrected entry: In the very first scene with hunny-bunny and pumpkin when they decide to rob the restaurant, hunny-bunny says "Any of you f**king pricks move and I'll execute every motherf**king last one of you." However, at the end of the movie with Vincent and Jules, when the scene is repeated she says "Any of you f**king pricks move and I'll execute every one of you motherf**kers." Also in the second scene it takes a few seconds longer for her to take out a gun out of her purse.

Correction: As someone said when correcting this exact mistake earlier, the reason for that is deliberate, because the scenes are from two different perspectives, and someone can remember the way it happened differently.

Identity (2003)

Corrected entry: When the actress was outside in the rain and she heard something, she turned around and screamed. But if it was the kid doing all the killing, she would have had to look down. But she looked straight at her eye-level where she wouldn't have been able to see him.

Correction: The kid could have been in the act of hitting her with something, such as a shovel to the face, when she turned around. This could better explain a valid reason for her turning around and screaming while still looking head level.

Joe Dirt (2001)

Corrected entry: When Joe calls Brandi to tell her that he is returning, the phone rings and he is leaving the message in real time. You can see the number of messages on the answering machine change from 00 to 01 as he leaves the message. However, Robbie manages to delete the message before Joe is able to finish it.

Correction: I had the same thought originally. However, the shot of Robby erasing the message could have been in the future. He could have been playing the messages back later and walked over to the answering machine and deleted the message, since it was fully recorded already but still delete-able.

X-Men (2000)

Correction: Storm and Cyclops turn to walk away from Wolverine and the Professor all of 5 seconds before the scene cuts. You simply have to assume that Wolverine rushed down to the garage a different direction and Storm & Cyclops were delayed.

Charlie's Angels (2000)

Corrected entry: At one point in the movie, Knox says that he's "going to torture and kill your boss." All he intends to do is blow him up with a missile, which would probably be relatively painless. This doesn't really sounds like torture to me.

Correction: Not necessarily a mistake, he probably just said that to agitate Dylan more when she was tied to the chair.

Rush Hour (1998)

Corrected entry: Lee sees Jun Tao at the beginning of the movie during the little meeting in which Han introduces Lee. At the end of the movie Jackie Chan yells "Jun Tao" and points at the same British guy he saw in the meeting, how did he know between the beginning and the end that he was Jun Tao? Sorry to ruin the entire movie but if he knew he was Jun Tao why didn't he arrest him at the beginning?

Correction: Jun Tao is the reference to this particular criminal organization. Inspector Lee also refers to Sang as Jun Tao at some points of the film. Lee realizes that Thomas is the head of Jun Tao after Carter clears out the Chinese heritage show and Thomas and Sang start to talk near the bar. That's when he starts walking toward them shouting "juntao. juntao.", then Sang pulls out the uzi and Thomas pulls out the bomb's remote control and says he's holding the daughter hostage.

Memento (2000)

Corrected entry: Teddy's license is from California, and his car is registered in California, but the license plate does not follow California's pattern. The license plate is SG137IU, but California's pattern is 1 number, 3 letters, 3 numbers.

Correction: Perhaps it's a custom plate, not fair to assume otherwise.

Armageddon (1998)

Corrected entry: To increase the chance of success, there's a backup for everything: we have 2 crews, with 2 shuttles, 2 armadillos etc. However, when we get the crisis where the government wants to blow up the nuke before the hole is finished, there is only one bomb. Isn't there a second nuclear bomb in the shuttle that crashed?

Correction: They lost communications with that ship and (presumably) everything on it. That's why they say nothing about detonating the second bomb.

Armageddon (1998)

Corrected entry: Liv Tyler and Billy Bob Thorton are in Florida to greet the heroes upon their return. Weren't they just in Houston a few minutes earlier?

Correction: Well it would take the shuttle a while (days maybe?) to get back to earth. It takes about 3 hours to fly a plane from Texas to Florida.

The Negotiator (1998)

Corrected entry: When the SWAT team breaks into the building, when they shoot the greande through the glass, you can read LAPD on the emblem on the glass. LAPD? in Chicago?

Correction: It looks like LAPD because of the way it breaks, but if you freeze frame it correctly it says IAD for Internal Affairs Division.
