Other mistake: When Iron Man and Iron Monger are fighting, Iron Man catches the SUV, and you can see the family inside the car. Although the car is completely vertical, the hair of the people in the car seems to defy gravity.

Other mistake: When one of the agents is ambushed by the Tooth Fairies he is reduced to a skeleton, with his teeth still visible. However, it was earlier stated that Tooth Fairies start by eating the teeth, then finish off the rest of a body.

Jumper picture

Suggested correction: Whilst cars in Japan are generally RHD, it's not impossible to buy LHD models. This goes especially for European imports, where LHD is even considered somewhat of a status symbol.

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor picture

Other mistake: After the avalanche when the yetis are pulling the people out of the snow the first person they pull out is by a house or shrine, as they pull them out look closely at the wall right behind them--the "snow" flips up like paper.

The Wrestler picture

Other mistake: When the setup for the first match is announced, the Ram is said to fight Tommy Rotten "for the strap", which is pro wrestling slang for a belt, meaning it was a title match. But after the match, which he won legitimately, The Ram is not announced as a new champion, nor is he ever referred to as such, and no belt is given to him after the match.

Saw V picture

Other mistake: Virtually all the text in the various articles and reports in this movie are fake. Look at the John Kramer article at the very beginning, even at first glance you can tell it's an article about pilgrims or something and has nothing to do with John Kramer. Also, when Staham is going through the articles he found on Hoffman's sister, you can very plainly see that every article (there are a few) is just the same typed out story copied and pasted into various formats. (This doesn't even require slow motion, just pay attention.) (00:11:45)

Other mistake: When Walt and Thao go into the barbershop, the barber gets up and puts on his barber jacket and zips it up. As the camera returns to the barber each time, the jacket zipper is at a different location.

The Incredible Hulk picture

Other mistake: Bruce is seen wearing a Polar F5 heart rate monitor in a couple of scenes after Betty gives it to him (such as when he is in bed with Betty) but there is no transmitter strap around his chest, which that model needs in order to pick up the wearer's heart rate.

The Hurt Locker picture

Other mistake: When James is returning to duty in one of the last scenes of the movie, apparently he is arriving in one of two twin-rotor helicopters. As the troops disembark down the rear ramp, they walk across what looks like the shadow of the elevator of a C130 Hercules airplane.

Max Payne picture

Other mistake: In the final gunshot sequence on the rooftop, Max Payne raises the gun up to reveal a slo-mo sequence. The handgun is coated in ice/snow. How long was he holding the gun in the air in the snowy weather?

The Dark Knight picture

Other mistake: The television that Lau used to communicate with the crime lords was a regular set carried in by Lau's operatives and placed on the table (which didn't have a mic or camera on it), and there were no cameras in the room. So how was Lau able to see/hear/interact with the crime lords? (00:23:10)

Suggested correction: Lau doesn't need to see the occupants of the room in order to talk to them - he just needs to be able to hear them, so the fact that there are no cameras in the room is irrelevant. The microphone doesn't have to be attached to the television, it could be anywhere in the room, including under the table.

Twilight picture

Other mistake: When Bella meets Edward's family, Esme's (Edward's mother) upper forehead (near her hairline) has no makeup, but the bottom portion does. You can see the difference between her pale vampire makeup and her natural skin (which is also shiny).

Journey to the Center of the Earth picture

Other mistake: When sitting on the beach looking at Max's notes, they mention that it is 95F. But nevertheless none of them appear to be sweating. Their skin is dry, and Trevor is wearing a big sweater.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian picture

Other mistake: After the trees wake up when the General is saying that they can still win if they retreat to the river, in the background there is a catapult that picks up a rock and never goes high enough to throw the rock or drop it, but when it comes back down, the rock is missing.

Transporter 3 picture

Other mistake: During the shoot out on the train, Frank takes cover behind the seats. Needless to say, those seats would never offer any protection against a hail of bullets.
