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.

Gone Girl picture

Continuity mistake: Some scenes were shot after Rosamund Pike had gained some weight, following the plot of the book correctly. However, they were edited together very badly, so that the extra pounds (most visible on her face) come and go several times during the montage showing what she did during the first two days of her "kidnapping." Pasty face with puffy cheeks, and sleek face with taut skin over jutting cheekbones switch back and forth in what amounts to a matter of hours in the film's plot.

Continuity mistake: When Kat is asking the detective what he thinks happened to her mother, after Kat is in college and she visits home, the detective lights a cigarette. We see him move the cigarette out of view and when he brings it back there is barely 3 or 4 drags left. The camera cuts to Kat and back at the detective and there's over half of the cigarette left now.

Continuity mistake: After the scene at the petrol station where we see Louis' new car, there's a high shot of him pulling up to a traffic light, with a car on the right of the screen about to pull alongside him.
