Revealing mistake: If you look at the missing part of the bridge, and look at the shadow underneath, the shadow is of a full bridge. (01:02:35)

Suggested correction: This might be correct, but it depends on the sun's position. If the sun is to the far left of the shot, the gap in the shadow would appear somewhere far to the right of where the actual gap is.

Nice try. Look at the shadows of the bridge trestles and those on the small brown building to the right of the photo. The sun is to the left of the bridge, and the shadow is exactly what you would expect to see if the bridge was complete - which it was, by the way. The "gap" is CGI.

Revealing mistake: During the hotel scene where Arnold is on the horse chasing the bad guy on the motorcycle, keep your eye on the carpet. As the bike clears a path through the lobby, you can see tyre marks all over the carpet where this shot has been practised many times. (00:36:00)

Clear And Present Danger picture

Revealing mistake: When Jack Ryan goes to Ernesto Escabeda's residence and asks to see Ernesto, as he is led up to the house we see his two companions on a roof top ledge watching through binoculars and one of them says "He's in", if you look at that shot closely the suppressor on the mp5 laying next to the sniper is fitted at a decidedly wonky looking angle.

The Crow picture The Crow mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When Draven sends T-bird to his death in his car, the real Ford Thunderbird is replaced by a fake mockup using a flimsy one-piece fiberglass body mounted on a pair of straight axles. When it explodes, the body lifts off in one piece, warping wildly while the front axle simply falls away. No proper car components like engine, transmission, suspension and so on, are seen anywhere, though they should be. (00:57:05)

Wolf picture

Revealing mistake: Whenever Will does one of his fancy jumps (which make him actually appear more like a monkey than a wolf) you can easily tell that he gets pulled up by a rope because always accelerates on the way up. If he were jumping his maximum speed would be at the moment when he takes off. The softened landings enhance the unrealistic impression. (01:06:35)

Wes Craven's New Nightmare picture

Revealing mistake: When the glove comes up the car seat and into Porter's chest, there are lights from buildings out the side window, so the car isn't moving at all. When it cuts, there's suddenly a hill where the lights should be and now the car is moving again. (00:29:30)

The River Wild picture

Revealing mistake: When Gail throws a stone to make it bounce on the water you see in slow motion that she fakes the throw with an empty hand, and only in the next shot do you actually see the stone bouncing. (00:27:25)

Timecop picture

Revealing mistake: Near the beginning, when Van Damme goes and arrests his former partner, watch when they both jump out the window. It is clear that they are on a cable decelerator. They fall straight down and in a controlled and slightly slowed motion. Very noticeable.

Blown Away picture

Revealing mistake: As Kate drives the Jeep downhill near the end of the movie and swerves the Jeep quickly to avoid another vehicle, her head and body remain upright throughout the maneuver. Of course she was no doubt in front of a blue screen, or on a set, so there was no violent maneuvering to react to.

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film when Jess is hanging from underneath the plane, you see her normal thin body frame. When see lets go, you can see that her body shape has changed and there is a parachute pack underneath her jacket.
