Fast & Furious 8 picture

Deliberate mistake: The coordinates listed for Hobbs' soccer game (34.1381N, 118.3534W) at the beginning are not actually a wooded suburban area with a recreational field, but are in fact the longitude and latitude for the Universal Studios Hollywood theme park in Los Angeles. (00:15:20)

Blade Runner 2049 picture

Deliberate mistake: When Deckard wakes up in Wallace Corporation, there is a wide shot of the platform he is on. All four corners of the platform are empty in the wide shot. Deckard then looks at Wallace's visual aids as they float away, and then realises Wallace is standing in the corner directly facing where he is sitting, speaking to him. This corner was empty in the wide shot, with no sign of Wallace. Wallace could not have entered in between shots because Deckard would have seen him approaching or at the very least, heard his footsteps. This was likely done intentionally as to not give Wallace's reveal away too early. (02:08:55)

Deliberate mistake: During the fight on the ship, Lin and the others are holding Andre over the core before he falls into it. And suddenly the ship just starts exploding and crashing for no reason what so ever. It just suddenly happens to add tension to the scene. (01:33:45)

Deliberate mistake: The elevator chime we hear at the beginning when the CIA exec reaches the floor, and the one we hear when Michael Bisping storms out of it to tackle the agent, are different. That's obviously a Deliberate Mistake since the second time around the chime is meant to resemble the bell ringing at the beginning of a match, a nod to Bisping's main occupation. Deliberate or not, the implication that Bisping has been hiding for no reason in a closed elevator for minutes is kinda comical. (00:07:40 - 00:10:10)

John Wick: Chapter 2 picture

Deliberate mistake: One of the bodyguard's rifle which is a Sig model SG553 only has a front sight and no rear sight. The rear sight can easily be attached to the Picatinny rail. Such a rifle is only good for up close instinctive shooting, anything at distance is spray and pray. (01:39:00)

Deliberate mistake: The front passenger's side mirror [driver's side is on the right] is parallel to the screen/camera yet there is a perfectly clear image of the passenger's face looking into the mirror. (00:00:38)
