Soylent Green picture

Continuity mistake: Shortly before Sol's death, Thorn rushes into the suicide center and talks to him from the control room above. When Sol pleads Thorn to listen, there's interference on the intercom. Now watch the control panel: The earphone cable on the left side dangles back and forth each time the "speaking permitted" sign flashes on and off, blatantly revealing the cheap trick they used to make the display flashing - they simply toggled the "on" and "off" frames. (01:17:30)

Continuity mistake: The driver of a carriage is racing along a road during a rain storm. In long shot, it is pouring buckets & buckets of water. Close-up of the driver & it is a light rain. Back to long shot, buckets again. Close-up, light rain.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ka and Bee jump over the "wall" towards the end after attaching the bomb to the boat, they have nothing on their backs; but when they jump into the water, the 'holder' of the bomb is seen on their backs again and the woman takes it off then.

Godzilla vs. Megalon picture

Revealing mistake: Near the beginning, Megalon steps out from behind a mountain. It's obvious the "mountain" is a cardboard cutout.

Westworld picture

Plot hole: There's a huge, fatal flaw with the whole concept of having guns that cannot fire on human guests as it detects the body heat. Unfortunately it's a stone cold,100% certainty that with the amount of gunplay going on in Westworld, virtually every day someone is going to be killed by a ricochet. Ricocheting bullets can and do kill people, and any scientist capable of designing guns like the ones they use in Westworld must know that.
