Assassins picture

Blade: Trinity picture

Audio problem: When the chief of police arrives at the blood farm he is surprised by Blade and Abigail. He quickly reaches inside his jacket to draw his pistol but Abigail draws her revolver much faster. As she draws there is the unmistakable metallic sound of a revolver being cocked, but when she extends the revolver out in front of her to cover the chief the hammer is down, not cocked. The revolver could be seen in the holster with the hammer down, so she could not have been manually decocking it to make that sound.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl picture

Audio problem: Barbossa hits Jack in the face and we 'hear' the distinct sound of Jack hitting the ground, though we don't see him actually hit the ground. We do however, see him start to go down and Barbossa yells, "Aaaah," and he starts to go after Jack. In the next shot, Barbossa, who is still yelling, "Aaaah," is behind a running Jack. If Jack did fall he could not have been up and running while Barbossa yells. At editing, they inserted the sound of Jack hitting the ground, for dramatic effect, even though visually in the next shot, we see Jack running immediately after being hit, while Barbossa yells behind him. (01:57:20)

The Spy Who Loved Me picture

Audio problem: After Bond sets the timer on the bomb at the end, the ticks don't add up. There's a definite tick each second, and you can count 12 of them after he starts it, then we cut back to the bomb and only 7 seconds have passed. (As a vague trivia aside, coincidence though it is, on the UK DVD he pulls the pin out at the DVD second timer ticks onto "07").

Audio problem: When Mel Tillis and Terry Bradshaw are trying to "re-tune" their race car, when Bradshaw tells Tillis to "hit it one more time", the car makes the distinct starting sound of an older Chrysler when the car was a Chevrolet. Also, how does Tillis starts the car? He has one hand on the steering wheel and his other hand is on the doorframe.
