Fury (2014)

Fury picture

Factual error: During the final battle, Gordo the tank driver calls out, "Panzerfaust, four o'clock!", as he looks through his periscope. He could not have seen any targets at four o'clock, as the driver's periscope could barely rotate towards the eleven and one o'clock positions, close to the left and right front corners of the tank's hull. The four o'clock position would be near the right rear of the tank.

Draft Day picture

Continuity mistake: The owner of the Cleveland Browns drives from NYC to the Teterboro Airport (12 miles from Midtown Manhattan), flies to Cleveland (450 air miles) and drives to the Browns facility (16 miles) in the time it takes the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th picks in the 1st round of the NFL draft to be made.

Godzilla picture

Continuity mistake: When Juliette Binoche is running for her life in the tunnel near the beginning of the movie, when the running starts you can see all men run pass Juliette and then she's the last runner. There's even a shot when she's looking back at the leaking water and is last, with no-one behind her. A second later she's in the front of the running group.

About Last Night picture

Continuity mistake: Towards the end when Debbie and Danny get into a fight around 5am at their apartment, Debbie packs some things and goes over to Joan's apartment to mull it over with her. While they're talking with Joan in her robe, Joan's hair goes from being up in a hairband (not even visible out of the hairband) to her hair being down and styled with no hairband at all and then back to up to not visible in the hairband again.

Brick Mansions picture

Factual error: The "brick mansions" are in Detroit, but when the surveillance satellite footage is shown, the initial, close-up skyline shown from above is of San Francisco. Then as it zooms out it's looking at Chicago.

Transformers: Age of Extinction picture
Transformers: Age of Extinction mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Lockdown stabs Optimus in the chest with his own sword, Cade runs closer and shoots at Lockdown. He then hides behind some bricks. In that shot, the bricks are a broken wall that is two separate pieces. Then it cuts to a different shot as Lockdown returns fire at Cade, and now the wall is one piece. Not only this, but some random guy suddenly appears in the shot next to the wall and right where the explosion happens where Lockdown shot the wall. He is wearing the same color clothes as the wall and only visible for a moment. There was no other guy present until that moment and he just suddenly appears behind Cade and gets hit. It's presumably a special effects member setting off the charge in the wall by the looks of it and it detonated before he got out of the shot.

Continuity mistake: When Kevin Costner tapes up the fat guy to the bathroom shower rod, his watch changes arms back and forth throughout the scene.

The Monuments Men picture

Factual error: The Map of Europe used for plotting their route displays the Netherlands incorrectly, showing its two major central polders (low-lying reclaimed landmasses surrounded by dikes) which weren't drained and finally completed until 1968.

Add time

Left Behind picture

Factual error: When TCAS sounds on an airliner, it should include instructions for the pilot to climb or descend. The pilot should not have to call another plane to inform that pilot. It would take too much time.

The Book of Life picture

Continuity mistake: When Joaquin enter the bull fighting ring before Manolo's bull fight, Joaquin removes his cape and drops it on the ground. When Joaquin's horse gallops by and Joaquin grabs onto his steed, the cape is missing.

John Ohman
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles picture

Plot hole: When April O'Neil calls Vernon Fenwick (drives the channel 6 van), he answers his phone and immediately says "O'Neil". When the scene cuts back to O'Neil, we see she called from a payphone. Fenwick would have no way to know it was her calling.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier picture

Revealing mistake: When Cap is driving the blue Chevrolet Silverado with Black Widow, the gear shift is in the up locked position, not lower on the column, indicating the truck was towed in the scene.

The Fault in Our Stars picture

Continuity mistake: In the night-of-the-broken-trophies scene, take a look at the trophy Augustus hands Isaac first. The 2nd time he smashes it against the wall, it is a different trophy.

Into the Storm picture

Other mistake: When the blue van rolls over, and they turn around to go pick them up, they park like 20-30 feet from the van for no reason, instead of right by it, seemingly just to have a tree block their path, then decide to run into a church with really big stained glass window and wood pews while a FIRE tornado is just outside. Rolling the van back upright, all the TVs and equipment inside the van seem to be working just fine.

Continuity mistake: When the guys are brainstorming ideas, and Dale writes "Murder" on the board, the writing changes between shots.

Rage (2014)

Rage picture

Continuity mistake: In the very beginning Nicolas Cage is picking up his daughter. You see him standing outside his black Cadillac as she walks up. As they drive away we get an overhead view of the car driving away. If you look at the emblem on the trunk you can see it's an Infinity. The next time we see his car and throughout the rest of the movie it is the black Cadillac again.

Need for Speed picture

Revealing mistake: When the final race is under way, the silver Saleen S7 hits a Police SUV and makes it flip, you can see the smoke coming out of the bottom of the SUV where the cannon has fired to flip the SUV.

Factual error: Jack Ryan takes the enlisted oath, not the officer's oath, when commissioned into the Marines.

The Other Woman picture

Continuity mistake: When Kate and Carly are leaving Carly's apartment building and Carly goes to hail a cab, Kate is wearing a cream cardigan over her blue and white outfit, standing by the curb holding the dog's leash. The scene cuts closer and Kate is not wearing the sweater at all.

Earth to Echo picture

Revealing mistake: When the 13-year old boys are "driving" the car to chase after Echo, the car is not being driven at all (but on a tow-truck) because we can see that the gear lever is in the "park" position.

Into the Woods picture

Continuity mistake: A couple of scenes after the baker's wife ripped off most of Rapunzel's hair, it has grown back to full length so that the prince can climb up to the tower on it.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes picture

Factual error: When Koba steals an Armored Security Vehicle class M1117A Guardian, he kills the gunner from the turret and then somehow manages to use the 240B attached to the turret. First, it takes three men/apes to operate the ASV, and second, the ASV cannot be operated from the turret. In that scene, it is assumed that Koba is operating the entire vehicle, something most humans cannot do or do not know how to do. Let alone a 240B, MK19, or .50 Cal M2 Browning. The ASV turned in the direction of the wall, which was the only way that the Apes were able to breach the city walls. This is also kind of an important plot hole blunder too because if it were not for the breach from the ASV, the Apes would not have won. The other blunder from this is that the gunner would not have been exposed from the hatch, since the ASV was using .50Cal and MK19. No need to use the 240B.

X-Men: Days of Future Past picture

Factual error: Major William Stryker is shown in uniform with a Silver Star ribbon and V clasp. V (For valor) clasps are not awarded with the Silver Star.
