Spectre

Other mistake: When Bond enters the ruins of the old MI6 building, he encounters the plaque that lists all of those that gave their lives in service of MI6. In Skyfall, M mentioned this plaque, and mentioned that Silva's (the antagonist of Skyfall) name was Tiago Rodriguez, and that his name is on that plaque, and that she'd have it struck from the plaque. However, she never had the chance to do so within the timeline of the film (almost immediately after she said this, Silva escaped and tried to kill her at the government hearing, after which she escaped with Bond to Scotland, and died there). His name, however, is absent from the plaque, and there isn't even a gap for where his name might have been even if she *had* had the chance to have it removed. (02:03:55)

Other mistake: When Bond and Dr. Swann make out on the train there are lights "flashing" in the room as if the train is passing streetlights. But they are traveling in the desert with no external lighting.

Other mistake: When flying the grey Hughes 500 helicopter off the crater, the pilot sits on the right side, but in a Hughes 500 the pilot always sits on the left side.

Suggested correction: Helicopter pilots always sit on the right, as the collective lever is on the left, and to use the left seat means climbing over it every time you enter.

This corrector seems to be missing the point. The collective lever being on the left is why helicopter pilots-in-command started sitting on the right (while in airplane the PIC sat on the left). However, helicopters began developing dual collective levels that allowed piloting from left or right, so this idea of "climbing over" the lever is a moot point. But, for whatever design reason, pilots of MD 500's sit on the left, not the right.

Other mistake: The sealed off room in the L'American hotel is a fantasy. For one, a maid or the owners should spot that a room is missing from their own hotel. Secondly, we know that Mr. White visited frequently, and as recently as the events in Casino Royale as evidenced by Vesper Lynd's interrogation tape. Whilst it's conceivable he was able to secure the same room every year, that he was able to replaster and repaint the wall as well stretches belief.

Other mistake: During the plane chase near the end the cars go off to Bond's left, then he has to avoid the trees and turns left himself, then we see the cars are way over to his right and the trees have disappeared. The cars have no time to get that far over to the right - Bond should have seen them when he turned left himself.

Other mistake: After Blofeld taunts Bond, saying he has three minutes and the building will implode, he activates it. As M, Moneypenny, and Q watch, the charges ignite, three minutes and thirty seconds after Blofeld hit the switch.
