The Happening (2008)

Revealing mistake: When they are sitting down for dinner at the old lady's home, it is clear that a very white light source is in the room brightening things up - something that non-electric oil/kerosene light sources cannot do.

Stand By Me (1986)

Revealing mistake: During the pie eating scene when the projectile stream of blueberries starts, the alignment is off for most of them, as it appears to come out of their noses and chins as well. The pie eating contestant next to the radio personality has their stream fall in an arc until it looks like it's coming from beneath their chin directly downward.

Continuity mistake: During the baseball game, the shot right before Zack finally leaves the store to come play shows the scoreboard at a 0-0 game in the first inning. The scoreboard shot before that one just showed the score as being 2-8.

Shoot to Kill (1988)

Event Horizon (1997)

Plot hole: The use of massive explosives to separate a ship makes no sense as the explosion would send fragments at high velocity in every direction guaranteeing it would penetrate whatever ship is remaining. As we see in the final scene when the ship does blow apart, it is not a precise controlled detonation to sever connections but a total (and glamorous) explosion which makes no sense whatsoever.

Medium (2005)

The Devil Inside (1) - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: When Allison wakes up from her dream about the murderer, she runs into the kitchen to write down the car's license place on a notepad: 2TH DOC1. However when she holds it up to show Joe, it's smaller written and not across the notepad as she had originally written it.

Event Horizon (1997)

Revealing mistake: During the opening scene, when the camera is starting to zoom in on the ship outside earth's atmosphere - the view of the crew inside zooms in quicker than the camera moving in to zoom into the cockpit.

Revealing mistake: When Zohan brings out the pot of Hummus to put out the fire, a black hose can be seen in the background running into the pot from the right side of the screen that wasn't attached to it when it was brought out.

Mr. Brooks (2007)

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Tracy Atwood is catapulted from the van, it was because the rear part of the van slid into another vehicle. As the van drove away there was no visible damage to the passenger side of the vehicle.

The Cell (2000)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Carl is in the bathtub before being caught, there is a red razor and bar of soap on the edge of the tub next to his right shoulder. In the next camera shot when he goes to get out of the tub, the razor is already on the floor before he even hits into it.

Other mistake: In the end fight scene between Dr. Isaacs and Alice, she bumps into the water cocoon and awakes one of her clones only to have it die a few seconds later. When she goes to cover up the body, the clone can be seen wearing a wedding ring - they don't incubate the bodies wearing jewelry in an embryonic state.

Continuity mistake: When the tanker explodes that Carlos jackknifes at the end scene, the zombies that surrounded the tanker simply fall over from the explosion. However when Alice drives the H2 up to and through the wreckage the ground is clear of any fallen bodies. (01:10:50)

Speed Racer (2008)

Revealing mistake: Throughout the racing shots of the movie, the close up shots of the fans in the stands show the same people used multiple times as evident by them wearing the same clothes, poses, etc.
