The Day After Tomorrow picture

Other mistake: At the end of the film when they arrive in NYC looking for the library, we know that they survived because they are inside with a roaring fire burning. But where is the smoke up above, as Jack Hall approaches? There must be a chimney, or else they would have all died of asphyxiation.

Suggested correction: As already corrected, just because we can't see an outlet for the smoke doesn't mean there isn't one. White smoke against white snow is very hard to see.

The Phantom of the Opera picture

Other mistake: During the gypsy fair, when the young Phantom is hurriedly pulling the bag back over his head, you can see the actor's face from the side, through the bars of the cage. There is no deformity, even though the angle of the shot shows the top right of his face, where the mask is always worn later. Even moreso: his deformity is bumpy, and the side of his face is all baby smooth.

Collateral picture

Other mistake: In the scene where they're loading Tom Cruise's first victim into the trunk, as Max lifts at the arms you can see the "dead" guy holding onto Max's forearms. (00:20:55)

Cellular picture

Other mistake: The video quality on the phone would not be as good as the film makes out. In fact, as far as I know, no mobile phone has that quality. The fact that they would then be using the video he filmed off the camcorder as evidence just makes no sense, as you definitely wouldn't be able to see anything on the phone anyway.

Spider-Man 2 picture

Other mistake: When Spider-Man shoots a single web out of each arm to stop the train, in the shots of his reactions, you can see that he is holding many webs in each hand. Then when he shoots multiple webs to try and stop the train, he has the same amount of different webs as before. Obviously they didn't have footage of him just holding a single web, and used shots from later in the sequence.

The Grudge picture

Other mistake: When Sarah Michelle Gellar is on the bus with her boyfriend, she sees Kayako face looking at her in the window reflection and panics. When she looks back at the window she sees the normal reflection of her face. Trouble is, her reflection is turning her head and looking side to side, whilst Gellar herself is looking straight and not moving her head at all.

Secret Window picture

Other mistake: When Johnny Depp finds the two bodies dead in the jeep, he turns around and spots a squirrel in the tree. We get a point of view shot looking at the squirrel, before Depp faints and the camera starts falling to the left. In the next shot, however, we are facing Johnny Depp and see he has fallen on his right side.

Other mistake: Towards the beginning of the film when Oz talks to Jill on his cell phone in the car and he hangs up, you hear Jill answer Jimmy in Oz's cell phone. (00:13:25)

Tremors 4: The Legend Begins picture

Other mistake: At the very end, when a man is painting the "F" of the city's new name on the water tower, with white paint, you can see that though the brush is white, and it is touching the surface of the water tower, no paint is left on the surface of the water tower. Nevertheless, the painter continues painting the letter in the next shot, even though no paint is left on the surface. (01:36:00)

The Village picture

Other mistake: The morning after the creatures give warning, the camera pans across the village. To the right, just left of the school, is the house where Lucius is put after he is stabbed. Notice the two smaller windows to the right of the door. Fast forward to the last scene, Noah's parents are sitting on the left and behind them you get to see the window frames are larger than the windows seen from outside. My guess is that the windows were bricked up so there would be better lighting for that scene.

Torque picture

Other mistake: In the opening scene where the two cars race. they use a traffic signal to start the race. This traffic signal is in the middle of nowhere and there is no intersection at this light and a single lane road. Also, there aren't even supports for the traffic light on either side (which would be necessary because the light is suspended from a wire), which is most visible during the crane shots.

Other mistake: When Gates writes down the numbers from the back of the Declaration of Independence he forgets one number. On the document there are the following numbers: 11-6-6, 12-18-7, 14-3-7. Ben however only writes down 11-6-6, 14-3-7 and then keeps on. (01:01:10)

Taking Lives picture

Other mistake: After Ethan crashes the Impala, he shoots at Keifer to make sure he's dead. Keifer's head and torso are on the hood of the car, but the shots break the back window on the driver's side. (01:13:05)

Taxi picture

Other mistake: When the taxi and the BMW are driving down the alley, the robbers are trying to escape, the cop is running after them on foot, they reach the end of the alley the BMW takes off but the taxi stops for the cop and he shows up shortly after. There is no way he could've caught up to them that fast. Not unless he can run at 30mph.

Exorcist: The Beginning picture

Other mistake: Both times that Father Merrin ventures into the sacrificial chamber beneath the church, as he is walking down the flight of stairs, the rock wall behind him is well lit as if there were another lamp sitting right in front of it. In the shot immediately after it, the rocks are in total darkness, even though he has not moved much. He is already far from them in the first place, so the light could not have reached the rock wall and illuminated it so brightly.

Ocean's Twelve picture

Other mistake: When Bruce Willis enters the hotel room in Rome to see Julia, Matt Damon reacts twice with surprise when he turns around and sees Bruce.

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow picture

Other mistake: When Polly notices the reflection of Joe's airplane marking on the water, the code "hllod" gives "Polly." That's impossible. To get "polly" from "hllod," a person would have to rotate the word 180 degrees, not view it as a mirror reflection.
