Friday the 13th Part 2 picture

Other mistake: Right at the part where Crazy Ralph is looking in on Paul and Ginny. Ralph hears a breaking of a stick behind him. You can see Jason put the barbed wire up and over the tree. How is that possible? He would have to whip it around the tree, not over it. (00:30:20)

Halloween II picture

Other mistake: Watch the scene where the drunk Ben Tramer (wearing a similar Michael Myers mask) was hit by the speeding cop car and then pinned against the parked van before burning. Even taking out the equation of accidentally hitting Ben Tramer, what was the cop car doing speeding at that rate of speed, head on towards a parked van on a side street? Remember, we only hear screeching brakes AFTER the car hits Tramer, and we never see the cop car swerve or any of that to miss hitting the van. Seems that even if Tramer hadn't been there, the cop car was sure to barge head on right into that van.

Other mistake: When attacking the convoy, the crew rushes forward during the crash dive. Just after a crew member jumps through the hatch after the bow crew compartment, you see someone standing still a second before getting pushed in the view of the camera. (01:31:15)

The Last Chase picture

Other mistake: Towards the end, Capt Williams blows up some buildings (or caravans) to try and stop Hart from continuing, and flies off. When Hart later stops, the same buildings are blowing up again. One could argue that it's being seen from a different perspective, but in the wide shot after Williams flies off, the car cannot be seen.

Other mistake: When David changes into a werewolf for the first time you can see his huge feet vibrate when he moves his legs in agony: they are made from rubber.

Escape From New York picture

Other mistake: When Snake is injected, and his timer is set to 23:00, Hauk tells him the glider is waiting. The next scene has Snake getting into the glider, but when he radios in, Hauk says there's 21 hours left. Snake was pretty upset that he didn't get a full 24 hours; knowing his life is on the line, why would he take 2 full hours to walk out the door and over to the glider that was waiting for him? (00:24:00 - 00:24:55)

For Your Eyes Only picture

Other mistake: When Bond is being chased on the bobsled track, just before he escapes the track.there is a shot of Eric Kriegler taking one last shot at him. In this shot however, Kriegler's bike appears to be in an open area and certainly not on a bobsled track. In fact it looks like a disused shot from when the chase started.

Stripes picture

Other mistake: During the graduation scene, if you watch as the platoons are marching by, you can see that several members are not in cadence as they should be. This also includes the men walking between the platoons that are supposed to be setting the cadence and they are out of step with the platoon in front and behind them.

Raiders of the Lost Ark picture

Other mistake: During the truck scene, after the German officer hanging onto the door falls down and another guy crawls over the roof, palm trees are reflected on the windshield, but wide shots show not a single tree around because the palm trees area was left behind a while ago.
