The Conjuring picture

Continuity mistake: When looking at the dog from the bedroom window, there are 2 windows in the room facing the dog. When we see the window from outside only 1 window is lit up, despite both being in the same room. (00:11:30)

The Lone Ranger picture

World War Z picture

Factual error: An An-12, the aircraft the main character uses to fly all over the world, has a maximum range of about 3,500 miles. Hardly enough to fly from the US to South Korea or from South Korea to Israel. The An-12 also miraculously transforms into a C-130 in a couple of filler scenes. And why is this ex-Soviet aircraft marked in USAF markings, assigned to McGuire AFB?

White House Down picture

Factual error: When Sawyer and Cale take Cadillac One ("The Beast"), they eventually want to shoot a rocket launcher at the fence. Sawyer wants to do this while hanging out of the window. The real Cadillac one is bullet proof and have several layers of glass with the final one softer not only to prevent the bullet but the more deadlier threat glass pieces. Only the driver side can open approx 3 inches.

Pacific Rim picture

Factual error: The coastal wall in Sydney is shown as being inside the Sydney Harbour (right next to the Opera House). But Sydney Harbour is not on the Pacific coast but a part of the Parramatta river, several kilometres from the ocean (where the wall should have been). So the wall is either not shielding the northern part of Australia or (more likely) the producers decided that the audience cannot tell that it is Sydney unless we see the Opera House.

We're the Millers picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Kenny feels he's been bit by a spider on his privates and run off the bus with everyone following after him. Kenny then pulls down his pants so they can look at it. Throughout these scenes, his pants are supposed to be pulled down. Right at the moment Kenny faints from the bite, you can see that his pants are pulled up and buttoned.

Elysium picture

Factual error: When the shuttles are approaching the station, their engines are firing from the rear, meaning they are in constant acceleration toward the station. When arriving at a station, you would need to slow down as you approach, meaning the engines should be firing forward (or the shuttle should reverse direction). This happens in all scenes where shuttles are approaching the station.

Continuity mistake: While Shannon and Sarah are speaking to Robin, two people (a blond white guy and a black guy with a blue satchel) pass by the trio twice.

The Hangover Part III picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Alan flirts with the store clerk, they share a lollipop. You can hear a "crunch" indicating that she chewed the lollipop. In the next shot, she takes the lollipop out of her mouth and it is still completely intact. (00:59:45)

Star Trek Into Darkness picture

Factual error: At one point Khan threatens to target the Enterprise's life support systems which are located behind her "aft nacelle". The Enterprise doesn't have an aft nacelle; as the many exterior shots show, it has a port nacelle and a starboard nacelle. Khan a) is familiar enough with Starfleet ships to know this basic fact about the Enterprise, and b) can see its nacelles for himself on his own viewscreen while he's delivering this line. There is no "nacelle" housing the impulse engines. They are enclosed by the hull of the saucer section. (01:37:25)

The Starving Games picture

Continuity mistake: When Kantmiss is climbing the tree, the ladder leading up is almost vertical, but in the next shot as she reaches the top, the ladder now has a significant angle to it.

American Hustle picture

Factual error: When Bradley Cooper calls Louis C.K. he asks him, "Where are you?" Given he's just called him on his office number, rather than a carphone, he knows exactly where he is.

Saving Mr. Banks picture

Factual error: In the scene where the young Helen Goff is traveling by train with her family, it's obvious that an American engine and coaches have been used, instead of a Queensland Rail locomotive of the era. None of the QR locomotives had flared smokestacks like on the one seen in the movie. The coaches are also incorrect - as far as I know, none of the Queensland Rail wood coaches had clerestory roofs with a set of windows in them like seen in the movie. When Helen looks out the back of the train, it's also obvious that the tracks are spaced at 'standard gauge' (4' 8.5"). They should be closer together, as railways in Queensland are built to 3'6" gauge instead. There is also no such company as the 'Queensland Victoria Railway Co', as marked on the coaches, as all railways in Australia are state owned.

Hansel & Gretel pictureHansel & Gretel mistake picture

Continuity mistake: John is taken down by a trap set by Hansel and puts a big hole in his back. He gets back up and is shot down by the Sheriff. As he is getting up a second time, it shows his back. There is no hole in his back or shirt before the Sheriff finishes him off. It also shows no hole or blood on his back in one shot when he is chasing with the bear trap before he is shot the first time. (01:16:45)

Oz the Great and Powerful picture

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, Oz gives his new assistant a gift, and leans in for a kiss. Both of them are seen to tilt their heads to their right for the kiss. The scene cuts to a wider shot, just before Frank barges in, and their heads are tilted to the left.
