Superman Returns picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Lois pulls up to the house where the blackout was traced to, she hears some music coming from the boat down at the dock. As the camera pans upwards over the car, as she steps out, the whole camera and a crew member are reflected in the side of the car.

Ultraviolet picture

Plot hole: Where did Cross get the blood on his hands? The gloves were clean of blood after he looked at the teeth and removed the gloves, so where did it come from?

The Prestige picture

Plot hole: Julia dies in the underwater escape trick tank because the axe couldn't get her out in time. However, if she was able to open the lid from inside the tank, get up, over, and down, then close the lid (all quickly, silently, and without assistance) when the trick goes properly, then there is no reason that the four men standing around could not have simply lifted the lid, either acting a key in the fake padlock to preserve the trick, or using a key if it's real. At this point she could have gotten her head above water and draped her hands over the side of the tank to stay up. That done, the crisis is over, and she must only wait to calm down enough to get herself down, or be assisted. Cutter built the tank, so he knew how strong the glass was. The only explanation for using the axe was to allow Julia's death, thus advancing the plot.

Deja Vu picture

Revealing mistake: When the Bronco is underwater at the end of the movie, Claire's hands are tied to the steering wheel. Doug rips the steering wheel off. Anyone who has worked on cars knows you need a puller to get a steering wheel off. Also, the steering wheel is gone when Claire swims to the surface.

Suggested correction: When Claire rises to the surface, you can see the steering wheel at the bottom of the frame as it comes out of the water.

Android Apocalypse picture

Other mistake: When Joey Lawrence gets his hand cut off by the human, he wakes up to find his arm where his hand used to be wrapped in some kind of black cloth. It's obviously his hand that is wrapped up because the wrap sticks out too far to be only wrapping his wrist. Plus it is also bulky which gives away the hand underneath.

My Super Ex-Girlfriend picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene on the roof after the power transfer, Hannah falls through the sky light and Matt yells down to her. You can tell the close-ups on Matt were re-shot because Matt's hair is longer and styled differently in between shots.

Leroy & Stitch picture

Continuity mistake: In the end, all the pictures in the cousin's book are normal, but earlier Leroy tore Xs in each.

The Fountain picture

Factual error: When Izzy urges Tom to watch through the telescope on the rooftop, he just looks and sees the nebula. From space observations done by myself, I know that the earth rotation is so fast that even for this amount of time, a manual correction must be done to center the view again.

Pulse picture

Other mistake: The same shot of two guys looking at a computer while sitting outside on the school campus is used in two different scenes. (00:02:15 - 00:11:35)

Deliberate mistake: When Zoom is moving the documents from the desk to the floor for Marsha to pick up, she quite blatantly catches him two or three times, but continues on with her business.

Meltdown: Days of Destruction picture

Plot hole: If the gasoline in fuel lines and tanks is reaching flash point and exploding, there should not be so many cars just sitting around. Surely all of those vehicles' tanks are not dry.

Continuity mistake: After they ditch Burns in the woods, they plan to go through a small graveyard. As the captain starts briefing the squad we see him taking the cigar out of his mouth. When it cuts the cigar is back in his mouth. (00:21:40)

Dead and Deader picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dean Cain's character and the girl are chained together with the shackles. Dean leaps through the window and crashes to the floor. The girl then jumps through the window and neither of them is wearing shackles. There was no cut, and no indication they had a key.
