My Name Is Bruce (2007)

Continuity mistake: When Jeff and the dark-haired kid are talking in the car, the little disco ball hanging from the rear-view mirror varies between swinging very gently and swinging with large, rapid movements, without anyone touching it. This is especially noticeable in close-ups, when Jeff is shown, the ball is moving violently, when the camera is on his friend the ball is barely moving. (00:01:50)

My Name Is Bruce (2007)

Trivia: The large guy who says the town should have rather kidnapped the blacksmith from "Army of Darkness", is played by Timothy Patrick Quill, who also played the blacksmith in question.

Shoot 'Em Up (2007)

Continuity mistake: In the start of the film, Smith is seen to use an oil slick to slide on his back across the floor. In all subsequent shots, the back of his coat is clean, without any sign of having slid across the oil.

Solomon Kane (2009)

Factual error: Early on in the film, Kane takes refuge in a monastery. But the movie takes place in 1600, and by this time all the monasteries in England had been taken over and dissolved by the Crown (Henry VIII).

Factual error: After locking his sons in the wine cellar, Henry remarks "The royal boys are aging with the royal port". But "port" refers to a specific type of fortified wine that was not made until about 1670, and it was not given the name "port" until the end of the 17th century.

Dead Snow (2009)

Revealing mistake: After Martin cuts his arm off, there are several scenes where you can see the bulge of the actor's real arm under his jacket. This is most noticeable when he is running through the birch wood, and when rooting through the ruins of the burned cabin.

Dead Snow (2009)

Revealing mistake: All the zombies have greenish-gray, decayed skin. But when the zombie in winter camouflage gear is climbing the tree after Anna, his sleeve pulls back, revealing the actor's normal skin underneath. (01:00:40)

Carnivàle (2003)

Lonnigan, Texas - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: In brother Justin's padded cell, the far wall is obviously a painted backdrop. It even flutters when the orderly and doctor walk in! The only solid part is a couple of feet at the end, that Justin leans up against.

Continuity mistake: After Montoya has hauled Wesley to the top of the cliff, he drops the rope on the ground, where it lands forming a couple of coils. You can see this as Wesley sits down and Montoya leans up against the wall. However, when they start their duel, the rope is hanging straight off the cliff, without any coils in it.

The Wrestler (2008)

Other mistake: When the setup for the first match is announced, the Ram is said to fight Tommy Rotten "for the strap", which is pro wrestling slang for a belt, meaning it was a title match. But after the match, which he won legitimately, The Ram is not announced as a new champion, nor is he ever referred to as such, and no belt is given to him after the match.

Lost (2004)

This Place is Death - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: Ses. 5, ep. 5, "This Place is Death". When Daniel is telling Charlotte that he has a plan, and explains, "When we were back at the hatch, I talked to Desmond", he places his left hand on top of his right, holding Charlotte's hand between them (seen at bottom of the screen). When the angle changes to a shot above his shoulder, his left hand is suddenly back under Charlotte's head, with no time to move between shots. (00:32:50)

Lost (2004)

The Lie - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Jack is walking into the medicine cupboard, he has a few small sweat stains on the back of his shirt. The camera cuts to show him turning to a different shelf, and for a split second you can see that his shirt back is now covered in a huge stain, and with large sweat rings under his arms. After he has injected Sayid, his shirt is completely dry again. (00:33:20)

Dead Snow (2009)

Factual error: Herzog is referred to as "Oberst" (Colonel) both by The Wanderer and in the end credits. But both he and his men wear SS uniforms and insignia, where standard military titles were not used. Herzog should have been called the SS equivalent "Standartenführer".

Dead Snow (2009)

Revealing mistake: The zombies' uniforms are all worn, decayed and dirty from being 60 years old, and being underground for most of that time. But there are some notable exceptions. The winter camouflage gear worn by two of the zombies is completely undamaged and pristinely white, and looks brand-new. In addition, when Vegard is thrown out of the zombie cave, the zombie who climbs out after him is wearing shiny black boots, that does not bear the slightest sign of having ever been worn.

Dead Snow (2009)

Revealing mistake: When Anna is being chased by a zombie out on an ice shelf, we get a close-up of the zombie in his winter camouflage gear. You can see a modern pull-cord holding his hood in place.

Heroes (2006)

Our Father - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: "Our Father". At the end of the previous episode, "The Eclipse, Part 2", Hiro brought Claire to the rooftop of the Deveaux building to witness Kaito handing over baby Claire to Noah Bennet. To illustrate his point, Hiro showed Claire the exact same thing happening in the "9th wonder" comic book he brought with him, and she can follow the Japanese dialogue from there. But when the exact same scene is shown at the beginning of this episode, Hiro does not show Claire the comic at all.

Doomsday (2008)

Continuity mistake: When Sinclair drives the Bentley through the closing vault doors, she barely makes it, with both sides of the car scraping against the doors (as we can both see and hear). But in the next shot of them driving away, the car does not have any marks from being scraped up. Side mirrors are still intact, and even the paint looks fine.

Firefly (2002)

Our Mrs. Reynolds - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Inara finds Mal unconscious in his quarters, his head is resting up against the wall. When the angle changes to show her running over to him, he has moved away from the wall and his head is on the floor. After she has called for help, his head is once again up against the wall. (00:31:00)

Shindig - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: During the duel, after Atherton breaks Mal's sword, he puts the blade to Mal's chest with his arm straight and his wrist slightly bent. The angle changes, and Atherton is suddenly holding the sword with his elbow bent and a straight wrist, in a completely different manner. (00:37:30)
