Vampires picture

Revealing mistake: When Montoya uses a spear to toss the vampire woman from the prison door into the sunlit street, it is an obvious dummy that has been used. First you see the woman stumble out, and the first flames shoot out of her, then the angle changes to a close-up of her as she is engulfed in fire. In the close-up, she has become bigger and rounder, and does not move.

Enemy of the State picture

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film, after the shootout, there's a shot with the camera zooming in on a newspaper at Will Smith's front door. If you pause it right once the headline fills the top of the screen, you'll notice all the paragraphs are just repeated, word for word. Additionally the word "received" is misspelled.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where David starts the game with Joshua, it asks him what side he wants to be (1 for the U.S. and 2 for USSR). Look carefully at the closeup of the computer screen - his choice, 2, appears long before David actually presses the key.

The Spy Who Loved Me picture

Revealing mistake: The shot of the two nuclear missiles being launched is used twice, just reversed. They seem to have changed the saturation slightly in one of them to make it look different, but there are identical clouds at the top left/top right in both shots, ruining the trick.
