Elysium (2013)

Continuity mistake: As we see John Carlyle code, he has a short paragraph up on his screen, and he's adding text at the end of it. In the closeup, we're treated to a very nice bit of Assembly code, and he's adding a few lines in the middle. When we see his screen from the back next, his nice short paragraph from before has grown a table on top, and he's back to adding text at the bottom. (00:40:30)

Hogan's Heroes (1965)

German Bridge Is Falling Down - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: During his experiments to create explosives in the tunnels, Carter has a pretty extensive set of glassware on his workbench. Necessarily he would have to replace (most of) that after each explosion - not to mention various light bulbs, furniture and other non-blast-proof stuff by the way. A lot of that glassware is specialty equipment, it would not be easy to come by even one set of in peacetime for a free civilian. In wartime, for an allied prisoner (even with the heroes' connections) it should be nigh impossible, and totally impossible to have an inexhaustible supply of the stuff. So we can either assume a giant plot hole, or treat it (as I did) as a big continuity mistake.

Suggested correction: Considering they regularly get equipment of all kind air dropped from "London", a few laboratory instruments and containers would hardly be challenge.

Firstly, considering the number of explosions, it's not "a few" but more like "QUITE a few." Secondly, if they had had the option to receive airdrops at the time, they would just as have had them airdrop the explosives instead of the glassware for carter to blow up, wouldn't they? Or are you suggesting they would have more spare laboratory equipment in store than a wholesale laboratory outfitter, "just in case"?

Hogan's Heroes (1965)

Bombsight - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: All through the episode, we are in a snowy, wintry camp surrounded by hills and trees. The target Gen. Burkhalter points out however is a little shed on a flat-as-a-board prairie with not a flake of snow OR a single hill visible anywhere, and the brown grass of late summer. (Yes I noticed there are some mountains off in the distance. So not relevant for this mistake).

Machete Kills (2013)

Continuity mistake: As El Camaleon pulls the Cuba Gooding Jr. face off, there's an unshaven neck with a tattoo visible under it. After the cut, Lady Gaga's face (also presumably unshaven admittedly, but not visibly so) comes to light under a mask of visibly lighter skin tone. (00:45:05)

The Safecracker Suite - S1-E27

Continuity mistake: As G√ľnther leaves the room, Klink touches his forehead and begins to sit down (or his knees are buckling, not relevant). After the next cut, he sinks down into a chair in a closeup. That same chair was behind Hogan before the cut.

Is There a Doctor in the House? - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: Hogan pulls a container with a red cross out of the drop box and opens it. It is labeled "penicillin" inside and contains among others several vials of clear liquid. Back in the camp, Hogan gives a box with a red cross on top to Kinchloe, saying "here's the penicillin." It is a completely different box.

Reservations Are Required - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: Hogan dumps a bucket of water on Barnes and Davis each, to make it look like they were the ones who hid in the tanker. They get big wet patches on their uniforms from it, but aren't completely wet through and through - which is to be expected, after all it's just a small bucket of water each. After the next cut however, they are completely soaked like they went swimming.

M*A*S*H (1972)

An Eye for a Tooth - S7-E13

Continuity mistake: Charles arranges a prank that involves a cake. The cake looks totally different in the respective shots. At least three cakes were involved: The one Klinger gives to Margret looks different from the one she holds in her hands when walking over to Capt. Hill. The one she holds in her hand in the closeup counter shots is yet another pie.

Dead Like Me (2003)

A Cook - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: Dolores walks to the computer and tells Georgia "Apparently Stinky5000 votes for 'Ferns and Flowers'." The first look we get at the screen shows the message "Could you tell us what the dog's name is?" and nothing else. The next two glimpses of the screen we get shows "You forgot to put detergent into the dishwasher" and nothing else. It's after the next cut that Dolores says Hungrygirl wants to know the dog's name. As Dolores walks away from the computer, we get a last look at the screen. You can see Stinky5000's message "I vote for "Ferns and Flowers'" appearing on the screen. (00:29:40)

Congo (1995)

Continuity mistake: As the expedition sets out after collecting their parachuted gear, the scenery instantly changes from Savannah in the shot with Elliot and Munro to deep jungle in the shot with Amy and the chameleon.

Continuity mistake: The Avro Triplane goes back and forth between using the authentic four-blade metal-and plywood propeller from the era and a two-blade massive wood propeller. The reason is, the producers originally tried to use the historic designs as much as possible, but had to change some things in the course of the shooting because the originals proved to be not airworthy enough.

Kommandant of the Year - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: The missile sitting on the trailer is thin and yellow, the missile actually seen flying is a fat, pointy, silver Atlas missile - which is an American intercontinental missile by the way, not a German tactical missile.

Klink's Escape - S5-E26

Continuity mistake: When Klink is "taken hostage" in the barracks, he is in his tunic only. Later in the car he has his overcoat on. He was supposed to be kidnapped, he could hardly ask Hogan to let him slip into his office for his coat.

Ghost Rider (2007)

Continuity mistake: As Johny Blaze stumbles down the warehouse, his boots are on fire. When the camera pulls upward to drop right back down on his face, they are not. (00:41:40)

Doc Premium member

Continuity mistake: Bond fixes the end of his rope with a spring-loaded camming device (which is unsuitable for lose, porous rock by the way). When Apostis tries to dislodge him, the end loop of the rope is fixed to a piton - it has to be, because SLCDs literally cannot be knocked out of the rock.

Continuity mistake: During the aerial showoff, in some shots the landing gear of the plane is extended, in some retracted.

Moonraker (1979)

Continuity mistake: When the boat jettisons its roof, you can see the "folded glider" prop below being torn away with it towards the boat's left side. In the next shot it is centered again (of course) and unfolds properly. (01:16:05)

M*A*S*H (1972)

Deluge - S4-E23

Continuity mistake: When Klinger is scrubbing the sink, it's empty, or almost so. Klinger turns on the water. When BJ brings in the wounded soldier, the sink suddenly is more than half full - and the water is off again.

Of Moose and Men - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: When Frank inspects the local workers, the laundry woman bends down to help the kid put away the sandwich Burns suspected of being a bomb. After the cut, she's upright again. (00:10:45)
