Priest (2011)

Continuity mistake: After pinning Priest to the train wall with the dagger, Black Hat throws a lit lantern directly in front of him, starting a small fire in addition to the one already raging through the train cart. The flames are so close they lick Priest's boots and clothes. But moments later, when Priest frees himself from the wall, the floor beneath him is bare, with no sign of the broken lantern or of the small fire.

Numb3rs (2005)

Spree - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: When Crystal sets fire to the meth lab, she flings her lighter in a straight direction towards the front door. But you can see that the fire does not start there: it starts in the middle of the front porch, more than three feet from where her lighter landed.

Factual error: The Vikings follow the Norse religion, and make several references to it throughout the movie. But when waiting for the first Wendol attack, Herger states "The All-Father wove the skein of your life a long time ago". In Norse mythology, the All-Father (Odin) did not weave the skein of life, the Norns did.

Conan the Barbarian mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Conan first fights Remo, Conan places a blood stain on his forehead by pressing his sword to it. Remo then runs off, and Conan gives chase immediately, pausing only to get Tamara on his horse. The stain is still there when Conan mounts his horse. The next time we see them, Conan and Tamara is still chasing Remo, but now Conan's face is completely clean. It is highly unlikely he would pause in pursuit of one of his father's killers to wash his face. (00:47:55)

Futurama (1999)

Yo Leela Leela - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: Season 6, episode 19 "Yo Leela Leela": When Bender discovers Leela's secret writing place, throughout the entire scene the lipstick marks on his head keep changing places, sometimes disappearing and reappearing. Most noticeable is the one on the right side of his head: it disappears when he is shown from that side, then reappears as soon as the angle changes.

The Stand

Character mistake: In Chapter 62, Dayna Jurgens is talking to Randall Flagg. Flagg states that he has no intention of going to war, saying that "If humanity continues, let our grandfathers fight it out". He even repeats it; "Or their grandfathers". What Flagg must mean to say, is that their grandCHILDREN could fight it out.

The Stand

Other mistake: In Chapter 59, Stu says that Nick "might have had his hands right on the shoebox", when the bomb inside went off. But Stu had no way of knowing that the bomb was hidden in a shoebox, he ran out of the house before it was even discovered. The only one who got close enough to see it was Nick, who was killed in the explosion.

Continuity mistake: When the three sisters are in the jacuzzi, Tess pours a glass of wine and hands it to Willa. The amount of wine in the glass increases in the cut between Tess picking up the glass and Willa receiving it.

Montana Sky (2007)

Continuity mistake: Pickles is killed by multiple stab wounds to the chest and neck, as well as being scalped. But in the scene where Willa finds him, and when he is seen in his body bag, there is not a drop of blood to be seen anywhere on his face or clothes.

The Hunted (1995)

Revealing mistake: During the final fight, Takeda is chained up between two ninja, and Kinjo orders them to kill him. One of them raises his sword, but is shot by Takedas wife. As the arrow hits, the film noticably "jumps", as the actor is replaced by another with an arrow attached to his throat. Not only does his position (especially his head) slightly change in an instant, but his suit also suddenly becomes a lot darker, and a crease appears in his hood.

The Hunted (1995)

Plot hole: When the police inspector asks the uniformed officers how Racine had been killed, they reply that he had been hit with a throwing star coated in poison. For some reason, none of them mention the obvious and significant fact that his throat had been slit as well.

The Hunted (1995)

Revealing mistake: When Kinjo is fighting Saito, he throws away his sword and fights Saito with his bare hands. During the duel, he first slams Saitos arm over his knee, then elbows him in the side of the head. But look at Saito's head; he reacts to the elbow LONG before it connects.

The Hunted (1995)

Plot hole: After leaving the hospital, Racine ducks into a pachinko parlor. In there, he gets a young girl to help him find a telephone and a taxi. The problem is, she is about 10 years old, and you have to be 18 to even enter a pachinko hall. The attendants we can see in charge would have evicted her within minutes.

The Hunted (1995)

Continuity mistake: After Racine is wheeled out of the hotel on a stretcher, the uniformed police officers hand their inspector an evidence bag with the weapon used on Racine, a throwing star coated in poison. The inspector looks at it, then returns it with orders to take it to the laboratory to determine the poison. However, when we see Racine on the operating table, the star is shown, lying in a puddle of blood on the operating table, as if the doctors just now had pulled it out of him.

Winter in Madrid

Factual error: In chapter 8, Barbara is thinking about bullfighting, and how she had seen the horses being disembowelled by the bulls. But Barbara didn't arrive in Spain until 1936, and since 1928 horses used in bullfighting have been legally required to wear protective padding that prevents them from being injured by the horns (so the horses can be reused in other corridas).

My Name Is Bruce (2007)

Revealing mistake: When Bruce is hijacking the old woman's car, what he is pulling out of the driver's seat is obviously a stiff, non-moving dummy. (00:57:35)

My Name Is Bruce (2007)

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, Jeff and his friend are having an argument about movies. As Jeff says "Yeah, so what", he is staring ahead, even turning his head slightly away from his friend. When the camera cuts to a wider angle, he is looking directly at his friend. (00:02:35)

My Name Is Bruce (2007)

Trivia: Jeff drives an Oldsmobile similar to the one owned by Sam Raimi, which Bruce Campbell drove in "Evil Dead" and "Army of Darkness". When Bruce is locked in the trunk, he even finds a Fangoria magazine, which was also shown to be in the trunk in "Army of Darkness".
