The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones picture

Revealing mistake: Early on, after Clary blasts the demon with a homemade explosion that blows a huge fireball across the kitchen and blasts out the window, there is no sign of anything being burned, not even the curtains. The kitchen is only in a slight shambles and there are small fires burning in isolated areas that never spread or char anything.

Star Trek Into Darkness picture

Oblivion picture

Revealing mistake: When Jack says "Screw you" to Sergeant Sykes, Sykes pulls his pistol and shoots Jack. You see the gun flash, and you see an impact on Jack. But if you watch closely, they do not line up. The special effects charge goes off indicating the hit on Jack's right breast. But when the gun goes off, while still moving, at that moment it was pointing at Jack's lower left abdominal region. (00:58:50)

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty picture

Revealing mistake: When Walter is floating in the water, his shoulders are well out of the water because Ben Stiller was wearing a lifejacket under his shirt. In real life, he'd be up to his neck and have trouble keeping his head above water.

After Earth picture

Revealing mistake: Right after the huge bird soars back to the trees and Kitai begins to run along the river something has either been moved or cut from the scene...look almost to the bend in the river in the rocks.

Superman: Unbound picture

Revealing mistake: Just after Superman and Supergirl have their talk about him going after Brainiac, it cuts to Lois at the Daily Planet on her laptop. There is a close up and you can see her fingers on the keyboard. She is typing really fast, but the animation shows her fingers just hitting the same 3 or 4 keys over and over again. (00:20:05)

The Tiger Mask picture

Revealing mistake: The female head trainer of the Tiger's Den puts a blindfold on and with a kick KOs the trainee that was sparring with the children. In the close-up of the kick you can see it is miles away from connecting. (00:17:05)

The Lost Medallion: The Adventures of Billy Stone picture

Revealing mistake: Close-up views of Billy riding Allie on the mini-bike (trying to escape the men following in the Jeep) did not include the lower half of the mini-bike; they were probably on a platform/trailer being pulled by a car. A 12-year-old (?) boy would have difficulty steering and maneuvering a mini-bike with a rider similar in size/weight and would have undoubtedly wrecked when he turned his body around from the waist up to look in back of him at the tailing Jeep. Billy also kept turning the throttle. (00:25:40)

The Lone Ranger picture

Revealing mistake: In each one of his scenes, every time you see Captain Fuller you can see that the actor is wearing contacts to make his eyes blue. It's obvious contacts with the brown rings of his natural eyes around them. And contacts were not invented for a long long time after this movie takes place.

Revealing mistake: At the end when the drone crashes in front of the car and the soldier gets out you can see the footprints in the sand from previous takes, in the exact spot where he steps.
