U.S. Marshals (1998)

Other mistake: When Royce tells Gerard he's going after Roberts after noticing him in the trees he takes his finger off the transmit button on his radio halfway into telling Gerard he's going after Roberts, but Gerard responds as if he heard everything Royce said.

Revealing mistake: Look closely at the device Bond is using to open Osato's safe. Before he presses the button to reveal the individual number you can see what the number is going to be.

Continuity mistake: When Bond begins to make his way towards the rooms where the American and Russian astronauts are being held captive the announcer in the control room says interception will take place in two hours but then barely a minute or so later the announcer says "100 minutes." Somehow twenty minutes disappeared in just the time it took Bond to hide in the tram car.

Audio problem: When Gerard tells Royce and Cosmo to take the left side of the van while he and Newman take the right his mouth isn't moving when he says it.

Gremlins (1984)

Plot hole: The whole film is basically told as a flashback from Rand Peltzer's point of view. Now he might be able to talk about things that Billy, his mom, or Kate might have told him, but he wouldn't have known about all the other the gremlins did to the rest of the town like killing Mrs. Deagle, the cops, or the gremlin in the mailbox.

Dr. No (1962)

Continuity mistake: When Dent walks into the room to be questioned by Dr. No we don't see the table with the spider cage in the first side shot but Dent only walks a few feet from the chair, and suddenly there's a table.

Dr. No (1962)

Plot hole: It's assumed that Dr. No had Professor Dent slip the spider into Bond's hotel room that night but if it were that easy to do that then why not just hide an assassin in the room to begin with. Someone had to be in the room to tamper with Bond's briefcase, the closet, and possibly the bottle of liquor so just hide an assassin instead of waiting for the spider to kill Bond.

Moonraker (1979)

Revealing mistake: When Jaws brings Bond and Holly to the command center of the space station Drax is sitting down in his chair then suddenly in the next shot he's standing without having moved.

Other mistake: When Blofeld blows up the crater at the end we see a shot of lava coming out of the top of the crater, but then we see a shot of the inside of the crater with all the bodies and barrels there is no lava. So where is the lava at the top of the crater coming from?

Revealing mistake: When Bond notices the safe while looking at the mirror inside the liquor closet he turns around to look at the actual safe and the same shot seen in the mirror is used for Bond's point of view.

Moonraker (1979)

Question: What happened to the groups of men and women that were supposed to be the members of Drax's master race? They're never seen again after he gives his speech on the space station.

jbrbbt

Answer: Most were killed in the laser battle, if you look carefully you can see some of their bodies laying on the floor of the station afterwards. The others were most likely sucked into space or blown up, when the station exploded.

Moonraker (1979)

Other mistake: Bond manages to shut off the gravity in the whole station, but when the bad guys begin their battle with the Marine astronauts the bag guys are walking towards the airlock hatch as if they have full gravity.

Dr. No (1962)

Plot hole: When the receptionist is showing Bond and Honey their rooms she opens the closet with clothes for Honey and says they just got their sizes the night before. How? Dr. No's people didn't know about Honey at all until she showed up with Bond, and they weren't even seen together until they were found in the swamp just several minutes before.

Goldfinger (1964)

Revealing mistake: When Oddjob throws his hat at the statue and the head comes off the head falls on top of the arm and breaks it. Obviously this was not meant to happen as there is a quick edit in the film before the arm falls completely off (notice the trees behind the statue suddenly freeze).

Dr. No (1962)

Continuity mistake: When Bond is fighting with Mr. Jones he picks the man up with his left hand and swings to punch him with his right, but in the next shot he's punching with his left.

Goldeneye (1995)

Plot hole: Q said that three clicks with the grenade pen arms it and another THREE clicks disarms it. But the first time Boris clicks the pen three times therefore arming it but only clicks it once thereafter so it wasn't actually disarmed. It should have exploded.

Goldeneye (1995)

Continuity mistake: What happened to all the Russian soldiers on the airfield when the weapons facility blew up? They were all standing there watching Bond catch up with the plane, but when he flies back over the facility none of the soldiers are seen.
