Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) - 106 mistakes
Continuity: When Harry, Ron, and Hermione go into the forest with Hagrid to see Grawp, Grawp frightens them and they run back and you see Harry is standing next to Ron and Hermione. In the next shot, Harry is standing about five feet away on the opposite side of where he was standing in the previous shot.
Continuity: During the fifth-year O.W.L. exam in the Great Hall, Umbridge is sitting at the head of the room in front of the swinging pendulum. When the Weasley Wildfire Whizbangs go off in the Entrance Hall, Umbridge leaves her seat. The distance between her and the Great Hall door changes between camera shots behind and in front of her.
Other: Harry can now see the thestral creatures because he witnessed Cedric Diggory's death in "Goblet of Fire." However, he should have been able to see the thestrals after Professor Quirrell died from Harry's touch in "Philosopher's Stone". Quirrell crumbles into dust (dying) while Harry is still conscious, watching, and fully aware of what he is seeing, thus allowing it to fully sink into his consciousness. Harry faints "after" Quirrell is dead and as Voldemort's spirit passes through his body. Nor does it only have to be a friend or loved one who dies before the thestrals can be seen — it can be anyone, including an enemy like Quirrell. There only has to be an emotional response to the death, which can be love, hate, fear, shock, etc. (In the book, Harry did not see Quirrell die, but that's irrelevant to the film).
Continuity: In the opening aerial shot of the playground, the landscape surrounding it is flat, devoid of any shrubbery, and there are no buildings or streets nearby. In the close-up shots with Harry and Dudley that are shown from various angles, there are now houses, small hilly mounds, bushes, and a road in the background.
