Back to the Future Part III picture

As Shamus hand moves away to let go of the plate, to the bottom right hand corner of the plate, a purple patch appears briefly where the two M. J. Fox actors interact, an error with the Vistaglide camera tech used back then. Easier to spot on Blu Ray Version, better than DVD.

Predator 2 picture

Revealing mistake: When the subway train slams on the brakes, the camera cuts to a shot showing the sparks coming off the wheels as the train is slowing down. If you look at the wheels carefully, you can see that the train is already stationery, and the camera is panning down the train to give the impression its slowing down.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead picture

Revealing mistake: During the pirate attack, Rosencrantz sits up in bed, narrowly avoiding a sword that's thrust through the wall next to him. Just before the sword appears, the film jumps a little. It also jumps again just after the sword has been withdrawn and he lies back down. Clearly these two motions (him sitting up and down in bed and the sword appearing/disappearing) are two separate takes that were spliced together.

Robocop 2 picture

Revealing mistake: Just before RoboCop gets out of the car to walk towards the baseball coach, Lewis shoots at the coach and he jumps back. Watch carefully. Whilst jumping, his hat comes off slightly and you can see the make-up for the hole in his head, which he doesn't receive for a few seconds after this. Seen best in Slow motion on the DVD.

Gremlins 2: The New Batch picture

Revealing mistake: When Henry Futterman is attacked by the winged Gremlin, most pedestrians just pass by, only glancing occasionally at Dick Miller's frantic performance, since the Gremlin was only inserted. Only when Futterman smashes the pest into the wet cement, the Gremlin is the 'real' thing.

01:02:35

Navy SEALS picture

Revealing mistake: When we see the navy seals burst into the factory to rescue the pilots, several of the bad guys get shot. On one of the bad guy's feet who falls back onto a table, there is a rope attached to his foot obviously so he wouldn't fall to far, or not to hurt himself or something.
