Revealing mistake: While Poe leads the aerial assault on the oscillator, in the closeups of Poe and other X-wing fighter pilots, note the cockpit windows at the pilots' left and right have identical marks and scratches in their individual X-wings. It's particularly noticeable when one closeup follows another.

Revealing mistake: After Rey lifts the rocks away from the back exit of the bunker, you can see C3P0 briefly as he bumps into the rock in front of him while exiting the cave, and the rock moves slightly. Also, the rocks that fell over the exit don't match the surrounding terrain at all while piled up as they are smooth like river rocks, but when we see them lifted up by Rey in the subsequent scene, they are rougher and look nothing like they did before (as well as being pretty lousy CGI). (02:16:47)
