Factual error: The shuttle's original mission was to service Hubble, yet when the shuttle is wrecked, Kowalsky moves with Stone to the ISS, which just happens to be "a short hike away." Hubble orbits at an altitude of 350 miles/560km, while the ISS does so at an altitude of about 250 miles/410km. Furthermore, even if they had been able to see the ISS from Hubble's orbit, they would have only seen it speed ahead, as their orbital velocities are very different: 7.66km per second for the ISS and 7.5km per second for Hubble.

Factual error: In the office motel of the Dallas Buyer's Club, a calendar behind Ron Woodroof's desk shows a newer model of a Lamborghini (2010-2013) but the story takes place in 1985.

Continuity mistake: The number of arrows that Katniss has in her quiver goes up and down through the games. For example, In the second cornucopia scene when the career tributes from Districts 1 and 2 attack Katniss, Peeta, Wiress, Johanna, Finnick and Beetee, one shot shows three arrows left, but there were plenty used during the rest of the film.

Continuity mistake: The glass of beer Donnie knocks over at the party (which falls onto the ground floor) is at its previous place in the next shot.

Factual error: In the scene at the airport when the jet arrives, a Diamond Da-40 is seen in the background. This aircraft was not made until the early 90's, a decade after the scene takes place.

Continuity mistake: After the glue cap gets removed from Emmet's back there is still glue residue on his back. But towards the end of the film, the glue residue seems to have vanished.

New this month Other mistake: Anna is shown from the front as she ascends an ice staircase inside Elsa's ice castle. There are giant ice pillars to Anna's right and left. They should reflect the side of her face, but instead the reflections show her face from the front.

New this month Continuity mistake: When the Shelby Mustang makes the 'Grasshopper' jump, the wheels change to a completely different type when it's in the air. After it lands, the wheels change back to the original wheels.

New this month Continuity mistake: When the WABAC machine is going through the time vortex, trying to escape from the black hole, some tiles get sucked off the WABAC, but in the next shot they are back on.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie Margaret White gives birth to Carrie. She gets a pair of scissors out of a drawer and tries to stab Carrie in the face. When Carrie starts to cry Margaret picks her up and holds her near her face and the umbilical cord has disappeared. It was there before she picked Carrie up, and she never cut it.

Factual error: The train liveries shown in the UK were well out of use by 1980. And the West Coast Railway (Company) did not exist at all.

New this month Continuity mistake: Miss Piggy plans to marry Kermit, unaware that the frog is actually Constantine posing as Kermit. The church bells chime 3:00 but a few minutes later when he is standing at the altar, Constantine checks his watch and the time shown is 1:20.

New this month Plot hole: Liam Neeson repeatedly asks the pilot to descend in order to minimize the impact of the bomb on board. The pilot is very reluctant about it, as he is requested to maintain his altitude. Eventually, the pilot says "F*** it" and goes into a radical nose-dive. The bomb explodes and the plane must do an emergency landing on the landing strip. However, the plane was supposed to land anyway there, so why was the pilot forbidden to descend? A normal landing, as opposed to the nose-dive, would require a lower altitude twenty minutes earlier anyway.

Factual error: In the scene where the young Helen Goff is traveling by train with her family by train, it's obvious that an American engine and coaches have been used, instead of a Queensland Rail locomotive of the era. None of the QR locomotives had flared smokestacks like on the one seen in the movie. The coaches are also incorrect - as far as I know, none of the Queensland Rail wood coaches had clerestory roofs with a set of windows in them like seen in the movie. When Helen looks out the back of the train, it's also obvious that the tracks are spaced at 'standard gauge' (4' 8.5"). They should be closer together, as railways in Queensland are built to 3'6" gauge instead. There is also no such company as the 'Queensland Victoria Railway Co', as marked on the coaches, as all railways in Australia are state owned.

Other mistake: When Philomena and the journalist are waiting to board a return flight from Washington to London, he calls his office in London where a clock shows it is 8:55. That would make it 3:55 in D.C. It can't be 3:55 pm because it is dark; so it has to be 3:55 am. And no flights leave for London until 3 or 4 hours later.

Factual error: In the scene where Wes Mantooth shows up to aid Ron Burgundy, the rear of a 1988-1990 era LTD Crown Victoria taxi is scene in the background. The movie takes place in 1980.

New this month Other mistake: Towards the beginning of the film, the teacher counts 19 students then says one is missing, implying there are 20 (including Mike) However, Mike ends up being paired with the teacher, despite there being an even number of students and therefore everyone should have a partner.

New this week Continuity mistake: When the guy is standing on the roof of the car shooting at Captain America, the empty shell cases are landing on the roof at his feet, shown in a close up. When Captain America attacks him and flips him onto his back, the shell cases are gone.

New this week Continuity mistake: When Zero and Mr. Gustav are discussing things in the courtyard right after Mr. Gustav escapes from through the sewer system, Zero's bag strap switches between across his chest and hanging by his side in different shots.

Factual error: In the final fight scene with Malekith, Thor falls through a portal that brings him to Charing Cross station, where the lady on the train tells him he has to ride 3 stops to get to Greenwich. Charing Cross is not on the Jubilee Line and so not directly connected to Greenwich - even then it's a lot more than 3 stops.

Character mistake: Error in reading of the "sextant." Mark is somewhere at 33°, but Stallone said 30° 22 minutes. I suppose they thought there were 60 minutes between marks 30 deg and 40 deg (actually there are 10°) and calculated the difference at 22 minutes.

New this month Continuity mistake: Fella falls back into mud, in the pig pen. But his back is clean.

New this month Plot hole: If the team blows up the rest of the money, how did anyone know that $10,000,000 was missing?
