Troy pictureTroy mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: As Achilles' ship nears the Trojan shores, Agamemnon snidely asks, "What's the fool doing? He's going to take the beach of Troy with fifty men?" At the start of the next shot, as the camera begins to pan down, on the far right, just beside a person's (who is dressed in blue) head is a metal bullhorn (ie. used to give instructions to cast/crew, and which definitely doesn't belong in this time period). (00:36:35)

Closer picture

Other mistake: When Alice asks Dan to make her some tea (after he tells her about him and Anna), he walks into the kitchen for just a moment, and comes back to find her gone. He also doesn't see her as he runs downstairs and looks outside. She couldn't have quietly gone down the stairs and out of the building in the short moment that Dan was in the kitchen. If she had moved quickly, there should have been a lot noise from her footsteps.

The Librarian: Quest for the Spear picture

Factual error: Flynn says that the chamber in the Mayan temple is "an exact replica of their great temple of Teotihuacan." But Teotihuacan was not a Mayan city, but rather the hub of a separate civilization (themselves called the Teotihuacan). It was in central Mexico, hundreds of miles from the Mayan area in the Yucatan Peninsula.
