Best movie mistake pictures of 2012
Continuity mistake: During the big battle against the Chitauri, Captain America is zapped with a blaster bolt. When Thor helps him to his feet we can see a significant amount of damage done to his suit, just below the star on the right hand side. But later on after Iron Man destroys the Chitauri ship with the nuke, the damage is completely gone.
Continuity mistake: When housewife Alice is trying to escape with her daughter in the laundry room, she slams a mop through the ceiling. When she slams the mophead through the ceiling the last time and pulls it out, the hole left behind is maybe one foot across. When she lifts her daughter up into the hole it is now a good two or three feet across and reaches from ceiling support beam to support beam.
Continuity mistake: Frank and Tony are talking with Flo and Tony is holding a bong. Through most of the scene, the bong is in Tony's right hand. But in several shots, it switches to his left hand. In one part in fact showing a side angle, Tony has the bong in his left hand and holding it on his leg. It then cuts to a close up and Tony points to Frank with the same but now empty hand.
Continuity mistake: After Ralph destroys the cake and it goes all over the place, we cut to a wide shot. In this shot, to Gene's right, there is a small amount of cake on the floor. In the following shot, the amount of cake has doubled. Also after Ralph destroys the cake Mary is holding the people that were on top of the cake even though Ralph just destroyed them.
Continuity mistake: Inside the school lab, the Lizard walks to Peter on the floor and a stool next to him suddenly appears for him to pick up.
Continuity mistake: When Ben slams on the breaks, causing Floyd to be thrown forward and hit his head on the windshield, watch closely. When he first hits it, you can see the glass begin to buckle out, and just before the shot cuts, it becomes quite obvious that the windshield itself disconnects from the car at the bottom and is breaking loose. Then only a moment later, the car is shown from an exterior view as it begins sliding out of control along the road, and now the windshield seems fine except for the blood and cracks. The separation at the bottom is gone, and the cracks are a lot less extensive.
Continuity mistake: Once Mud reveals who he shot and asks for Neckbone and Ellis to help him get the boat out of the tree, Neck asks for the pistol in return. Mud reaches around his back and puts his hand on the handle of the pistol tucked in the back of his jeans as he begins saying his shirt and pistol are the only things of value he has. It cuts to a close up, and suddenly his hand is on his hip and he reaches for his shirt, then back around to his pistol again.
Continuity mistake: The two backup judges have just arrived and are asking to be let into Peach Tree. Mama has a knife on the tech guy's stomach, coercing him to keep the blast door shut. In every shot from the behind, her left hand has a firm grip on the guy's shoulder. In shots from the front, the hand is absent.
Continuity mistake: Snow and Emilie find the inmates used in experiments. Then Alex and a couple of others get the jump on them and they have a fight. Snow grabs his gun and gets shot at, and falls down the elevator shaft. He lands and is knocked out, with his left arm draped over himself across his chest as he lies partly on his side. The next time he is shown moments later, he is now flat on his back with both arms at his sides.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, before the Guardians leave, Jamie rushes over to hug Jack. In the first shot, the top of his head nearly reaches Jack's ribcage. However, in the following close-up shot, Jamie is almost at the same height as Jack's shoulders.
Continuity mistake: When Wilee phones Manny early on in the movie, Wilee unlocks the chain to his bike and the bike and chain fall to the floor. Wilee then picks up the chain and doesn't pick up the bike. But by the time he finishes the call with Manny, the bike is now back to being laid against the tree, when it was on the ground moments earlier.
