Best movie mistakes of 2012

Factual error: Dr Schultz pays with 12 $1000 bills, but $1000 bills were not created until 1861, after the time period of this movie.

Other mistake: The video stream displayed in the night sky showing which tributes have died after the first day does not add up correctly. They display in district order. We see the start, the girl from three (so the boy is still alive), and the boy from four with no breaks. Then they break away to show Katniss and the control room, after which they continuously show the boy and girl from seven, the boy from eight (so the girl is still alive), the girl from nine (so the boy is still alive), and then fade to the end. We know that Foxface, the girl from five, dies later in the movie. Even if we assume that during the portion not shown, the girl from four, the boy from five, and both tributes from six are dead, that's only a total of ten. Twelve are supposed to be dead at that point in the movie.

1HelpSw33p

Revealing mistake: Each crew member has a monitor on their spacesuits that they use whenever they are exploring the caves. Whenever the monitor is shown, each crew member's individual heartbeat is shown in the lower left corner of the monitor. But no matter which heartbeat is shown, every time a heartbeat on the monitors shown, it is always the exact same heartbeat, despite the various changes in panic and stress throughout the movie.

Razzer

Factual error: In the scene where Arthur first enters the house and starts going through paperwork, there's a shot of Nathaniel Drablow's death certificate which shows 'body was not recovered' in the box next to his cause of death. Such a thing would not be written on death certificates of the time - that box is reserved for 'Signature, description and residence of informant', a heading which can partially be seen as the camera pans across the certificate. For the death to have been registered, an informant's signature would have to have been there.

Other mistake: When Heather Hills takes a swing at Rodrick with mike stand and hits the chocolate fountain, how does Heather splash chocolate on herself?

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Kwon says he will take Bobo down if he ever breaks the law again, Bobo empties his glass of whisky. In the next shot when Bobo puts the glass down, it's half full.

Mortug

Factual error: Mavis knows her parents met in Hawaii because she found her father's souvenir postcard. Mavis is 118, which means her parents met in the 1890's at the latest. There were no postcards like that for Hawaii in the 1890's.

Phixius

Factual error: On the Amtrak train, "Vicki" sees a sign advertising downhill skiing trips to Victoria, BC. There are no downhill ski areas in Victoria, or close by, and Amtrak doesn't travel to Victoria.

rswarrior

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of "Stars" the camera is behind Javert while he faces out towards the city. On the right, you can see clouds being illuminated by an absent moon that is off screen but behind said clouds yet the moon reflects off of the left side of his face.

Then in a further shot, his fingers are suddenly holding the board about 2 inches above the finger prints.
