General questions

I am after the title of a narrated animated/live action film about people living underground in the woods(probably in Germany) during World War 2 to hide from the Nazis. There is a little girl in the film whose family gets taken to a concentration camp and she is left all alone.

Chosen answer: It might be "Sarah" a.k.a. "Sarah and the Squirrel", 1982 by Yoram Gross.

Rome (2005)

Show generally

Factual error: Cicero's secretary, Tiro, is seen throughout the series wearing a plaque around his neck marking him as a slave, and in episode 2-6, Cicero tells him, "You've been freed in my will". However, Tiro was freed in 53 BC, several years before the events depicted in the series.

Red Dawn (1984)

Revealing mistake: In the beginning of the movie, when the teacher is shot, the impacts on his chest are out of sync with the actual gunfire. First, we see the soldier start shooting, but he fires several shots at point blank range before the bulletholes and blood appear on the teacher. Also, as the angle changes, the teacher falls backwards with more impacts appearing on his chest. The problem is, the soldier has already stopped shooting, and there is no other gunfire to be heard. (00:05:25)

Red Dawn (1984)

Revealing mistake: When Col. Tanner is on top of the Russian tank, he is firing his pistol into it. After a few shots, you can see that the slide on his gun locks back, showing that the gun is empty. Tanner does not reload, but is none the less able to keep shooting afterwards. (01:11:25)

Liar Liar (1997)

Continuity mistake: Towards the end, Fletcher is on the stretcher talking to Max, and looks at his watch to discover he has been able to lie for half an hour. Max then responds "So you lied?". Fletcher then grabs Max's shoulder with his left hand, saying "No! It was the truth!". As the angle changes he is still speaking, but his left hand is now lying across his chest before he reaches out to grab Max again.

Gremlins (1984)

Continuity mistake: When the old man is leaving the family's home, in the indoors shot as he turns to walk out the front door, he is holding Gizmo's box under his right arm, and has the "smokeless ashtray" in his left hand. Cut to the outside shot of him walking through the door, and he is suddenly holding the Mogwai box by it's handle, and has nothing in his left hand. (01:42:00)

Nacho Libre (2006)

Deliberate mistake: Several of the matches Nacho loses, he should actually have won. In Mexican pro wrestling, it is illegal to rip another's mask off, and results in immediate disqualification. This happens twice to Nacho, both in the fight with the midgets and in the final against Ramses.

Nacho Libre (2006)

Deliberate mistake: In the final fight, Nacho pins Ramses outside the ring. Under Lucha Libre rules, a pin must take place inside the ring to be valid, so Nacho would not have won a bout this way, and the announcer did not mention anything about there being any special rules or stipulations for the match, such as "Falls count anywhere".

Futurama (1999)

I Second That Emotion - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When talking about El Chupakneebra with the Sewer People, the characters are standing in front of a building with a blue sign reading "Cleaners". But in the shot where Leela explains how Nibbler loves fresh crocodile, the writing on the sign changes to a completely different, much narrower, style.

Futurama (1999)

I Second That Emotion - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When the mutant with the big head first mentions El Chupakneebra, in the background you can see the blue sign reading "Cleaners". It is then attached to the building next to the one the characters are standing by. However, in the next shot, when Leela asks what El Chupakneebra is, you can see the blue sign on the building they are in front of.

Continuity mistake: When Ramius is shot, he drops to the floor holding his wound with his left hand. He is still using his left hand when Ryan asks "What happens if he makes it to that ignition circuitry". The angle then changes, and Ramius is holding his wound with his right hand as he answers "He can incinerate the ship". New angle change, and Ramius is once again using his left hand on the wound.

Eragon (2006)

Continuity mistake: When Eragon and his cousin are play-fighting in the shed, a large sweat stain appears and disappears on Eragon's shirt. It's there when he kicks a pile of sticks at Roran, completely gone when he picks up the stick he uses as a sword, and then it reappears at the very end of the fight. (00:09:35)

Continuity mistake: As Jack and Kyle are walking up the "Guitarway to Heaven" in the Rock Museum, they vary between marching completely in synch with each other and out of synch. They are still walking directly next to each other, so it is not due to one of them changing their pace.

Rome (2005)

Kalends of February - S1-E12

Factual error: Caesar was not murdered on the Senate floor, as depicted in the series. That was the conspirators' plan, but when they learned that Mark Anthony was coming to meet Caesar, they instead lured Caesar into the portico of Pompey's theatre and killed him there.

Suggested correction: The reason the senate was meeting in a different place is because the Senate house had been burned down a little while before so they met elsewhere during its reconstruction.

Unearthed - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: After Lincoln and LJ have been recognized by the waitress, they speed off down a road. During their conversation in the car, whenever we see LJ from (his) right side, his hair is blowing in a strong draft, and is blown away from the temple. In all other shots, his hair is completely calm, and is hanging down and forward, covering his right temple completely. (00:13:50)

The Omen (2006)

Revealing mistake: When Robert Thorn and Keith Jennings are opening the graves, they are sitting and kneeling on the snow-covered ground. However, none of the snow clings to their clothing, and Roberts light trousers do not get any wet spots on them from the snow, revealing that the snow is fake.

The Glass Ballerina - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: Season 3, episode 2, "The Glass Ballerina". When Jin is in the hotel and is about to kill Jae Lee, he holds a pillow to Lee's head and presses his gun against it. At first, the gun is pointing to Lee's cheekbone, but when it cuts to Lee as he is sobbing "I'm sorry. I'm sorry", the gun is much lower, and pointing to his throat. Cut back to Jin, and you can see the gun is once again pointing to Lee's face. There was no time for Jin to move it between shots, and Lee did not move nearly enough to cause this changes.

Judge Dredd (1995)

Continuity mistake: When Rico is activating the ABC-robot, he tells it "we're going to war". His face is then very close to the robot, only inches away. The angle changes to a shot over Rico's shoulder, and his head is now much further away from the robot, even before the robot starts to sit up.
