13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi picture

Factual error: In the scene after the attack begins and military assets are spinning up to go help, when they briefly show the SOC guys loaded into a transport aircraft they all look operator-ish and have high cut fast helmets, but are carrying M16A4's with no optical devices mounted. I don't know of any SOCOM units that wear fast helmets but are issued A4's without an ACOG, ELCAN, aimpoint, etc.

The Accountant picture

Factual error: When researching Christian Wolf in the IRS database, they state he made $75,000 and ran ZZZ Accounting. They then look up 3 other businesses with over a million dollars in income, said they were all partnerships and stated that Christian Wolf was managing partner. Given that partnerships are flow through entities for income tax purposes, all that income would flow through to individual returns, resulting in much more than $75,000 in income on Christian Wolf's tax return.

The 9th Life of Louis Drax picture

Revealing mistake: When the Creature is telling Louis the "Bat Story," the Creature is holding a burning torch in its right hand against a wholly-dark background. It becomes apparent that the shots of the creature are actually Dutch Angle shots (the angle of the camera is rotated about 45°), because the smoke from the torch is not rising straight upwards; rather, the smoke is rising at a 45° angle toward the upper left corner of the screen.

The Thinning picture

Continuity mistake: When Laina has to take off her clothes to change after she failed, there are no straps, meaning no bra. When she and Blake are changing by the pool, she has a bra on. She never had time to change/find one.
