War of the Worlds picture

Revealing mistake: When the Hudson Ferry captain casts off the large label that reads "Hudson Ferry" is on his left side of his jacket. However, in the exterior shot as he looks out the window at the whirlpool, the label is on his right side. This shot was flipped, and amusingly, the CGI guys actually retouched the words "Hudson Ferry" so it wouldn't read backwards. (01:02:25)

Revealing mistake: Towards the ending in the strip club, Locus is getting arrested. When it shows his hands being cuffed, it's not his hands but those of Charles in an earlier scene. You can tell because the person is wearing long red sleeves and a Rolex.

Red Eye picture

Revealing mistake: When Lisa stabs Jackson in the throat with the pen, if you watch closely, you can see that she is still holding the pen when she pulls her arm back, but in the entire rest of the scene the pen is still stuck in his throat. If you watch it in slow motion, the mistake becomes even more obvious. (00:56:15)

Daltry Calhoun picture

Revealing mistake: Whenever June is supposed to be playing the harmonica, the viewer can tell she is actually not playing it but just putting it up to her mouth. Her cheeks never are pushed out or sucked in by the air she is supposedly using to play the instrument. Also at the very end when she is playing the guitar it doesn't seem that her hand movements match the music that is heard.
