Xanadu (1980)

Continuity mistake: After Simpson tosses the album to Sonny, when he looks at the album cover in the closeup we see the hands holding the album have bitten down fingernails, but there are quite a few other closeups of Sonny's hands and his fingernails don't look like that. (00:10:10)

Doctor Who (2005)

Doctor Who mistake picture

The Pilot - S10-E2

Other mistake: After the Doctor tells Bill that Heather's face isn't symmetrical, when he and Bill look into the "puddle" together the Doctor explains that instead of seeing her normal backwards reflection, she's seeing her face "the right way round." The problem occurs in the next shot of the Doctor and Bill seen in the puddle, because the "WOW!" patch on Bill's jacket is properly where it should be, but note everything else is actually backwards. Things such as Bill's color-block top and her denim jacket buttons are on the opposite way. Also note the Doctor's ring has switched hands. Presumably this shot was edited, and the "WOW!" patch was blurred on the left of Bill's jacket then digitally added to the right side, to give the appearance that it's "the right way round" as the Doctor said.

Andy: Clara, sometimes a parent can't see what he should do, and sometimes it takes a person from the outside to show him. And I'd like to thank you.

Xanadu (1980)

Xanadu mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Sonny appears on the stairs at the art studio note Richie's hair as he walks past him, then as soon as Sonny walks across the room and takes off his vest, Richie's hair is now longer and fuller. (00:08:30)

Continuity mistake: When Elliott's holding the Kromedge saw blade in his hands, note the position of the writing on the blade and the position of his fingers within the blade's teeth, then after he slices the index finger of his left hand there's a closeup of the blade with Elliott's blood on one of the teeth. The problem is that Elliott's index finger was actually on the blade tooth further along the blade's circumference (note the writing).

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: After Mary and all the boys look in the shed and find tracks, when they head back to the house Tyler stops at the pizza box, and note the three distinct marks on the ground to inconspicuously signify where actors should stand while discussing the pizza. Michael stands at his curved mark, Elliott stands at his L-shape mark, and Mary's mark is in the shape of a T-mark.

Continuity mistake: When the two government agents pull over at the bottom of the hill to cut the boys off, in the shot from inside the car we see Greg and Tyler riding their bikes over the car and zooming off, then the agent inside the car lifts his head as yet another bike lands on the car, but in the next exterior shot it's Tyler (note his black high-tops) who lands on the car's roof, knocking off the magnetic beacon light. (Elliott's conspicuously missing from these few shots).

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: When the two government agents pull over at the bottom of the hill one of the agents remains in the vehicle, and in the shot from inside the car just as Greg rides his bike over it, the crew member's (presumably cameraman) hand can be seen behind the agent's head in the rearview mirror's reflection. (It can't be the driver's hand since it gets blocked from view by the driver's head, within the reflection).

Continuity mistake: When Mary and the boys go to the tool shed after Elliott's encounter, as Tyler and Michael kneel down to inspect the tracks on the ground, the trash can beside Tyler is partially under the table and a roll of fencing is upright behind him. However, after Michael mentions the coyote, the trash can is now to the left of the table, the roll of fencing is lying on the ground in front of the trash can, and some long-handled tools have moved as well.

Continuity mistake: After ET levitates the balls of modeling clay (which Gertie had been playing with) Elliott tells Michael "something scary" is happening, and when Elliott runs toward the shed the swings on the swing set are motionless, but in the next shot one of the swings is suddenly swinging back and forth, but in the next shot it's perfectly idle once again.
