The Mummy Returns picture

Audio problem: When they arrive at "The Magic Carpet" you can hear Izzy drag three heavy bolts across the door, when the door opens, there are no bolts - just as well, otherwise shooting the lock wouldn't have worked. (00:56:30)

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring picture

Audio problem: When Arwen and Aragorn are talking on the bridge, you see Arwen's lips moving while Aragorn is speaking. When you zoom in you can see that Arwen's mouth is definitely moving as she is talking animatedly, both when neither character has any dialogue and when Aragorn's voice says 'I thought I had strayed into a dream'. (01:32:15)

The One picture

Audio problem: When the MVA agents confront Yulaw in the hospital, Funsch locks in on Yulaw's right shoulder first. His gun's sights show up, being blue, and then turn red. There is a sound that the gun makes before the sight vanishes. The shots change, and you hear the sound end while the site is off screen showing the scared doctor. Then, several seconds later, it shows Roedecker's gun lock in on Yulaw's left shoulder, and the sound happens as the blue site turns red, and vanishes. However, the site from Funsch's gun is still on Yulaw visible and red, only now vanishing. The sound it made already indicating that it was gone, but it wasn't. (00:33:25)

Osmosis Jones picture

Audio problem: In the scene "By The Throat", After Osmosis goes down the escalator. The red smoke starts to go around them. Osmosis moves his mouth with no sound, but not until a couple seconds later when the shot changes do you hear what is that cherry stench. (00:20:37)

Suggested correction: I'm watching it and the scene is synced just fine. As soon as Jones opens his mouth, you hear him say "what is that cherry." Then the shot cuts to Leah and you hear him say "stank."

The Fourth Angel picture

Audio problem: Mike Sarne who plays Leo Hasse, one of the bad guys and supposedly German (you hear some German bits when the hijackers come back to their hideout and speak an almost incomprehensible mix of Serbian, English, and German), has a pretty strong English accent. (00:32:15)

Enemy at the Gates picture

Audio problem: We see a Russian commander giving the order that one person gets a gun and a second follows him - the audio is out of sync. It is not another person giving the orders that we can hear, as we prominently see him shout with a megaphone. (00:09:45)

Spy Game picture

Audio problem: When Harry Duncan calls Muer at his house in the opening of the movie you can see that he is talking on a cellular phone in an elevator, yet when he hangs up (you hear it from Muer's end of the line) you can hear the sound of a phone receiver being slammed down. Cellular phone calls end with a polite little beep, there is nothing that makes a physical noise like that. (00:09:05)

The Fast and the Furious picture

Audio problem: In the first hijacking scene, where the Honda Civic darts under the trailer, you hear the car shift up 3 times. Each time, it pulls high revs, yet the Civic doesn't move forward (at one point it almost goes under the rear wheels of the trailer) or crash into the back of the main tractor unit. Surely, with the performance of these vehicles against a laden truck, shifting up three times would have caused it to hit the tractor unit. (00:02:39)

Heist picture

Audio problem: When Mickey asks Joe "don't you want to hear my last words?" we hear the sound of a pump shotgun being racked, but Joe has a double-barreled shotgun - there wouldn't be any cocking sound.

Tail Sting picture

Audio problem: Jennifer and the Captain exit the plane and stay there for several minutes while sirens from airport services howl, obviously to help them after such a chaotic flight. However, wider shots show that there's not a single car or person nearby.

The Mexican picture

Audio problem: During the failed kidnapping attempt at the mall, Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots Are Made for Walking" is playing over the mall sound system, and the song is badly edited to extend it for the duration of the scene. In the actual song, Nancy Sinatra famously says, "Are you ready, boots? Start walkin'!" only once. But, in this movie's chopped-up version, she says it twice.
