Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Factual error: When the villain takes the reporter into space (the earth is just a circle off in the distance), then weakens and lets go of her, not only does she start to fall, she starts to fall straight down and has to hang onto him. (Oddly enough, he's not falling). Did somebody inject normal earth gravity into mid-space?

Continuity mistake: While the people in the village are watching the lava flow down the streets, the first shot shows them to the right of a wooden door. A frame later they are positioned several feet further, close to a big green plant.

Revealing mistake: Watch the moon fight between the two supermen. In one scene, Superman charges nuclearman and you can see the backdrops flutter if your monitor brightness is high.

Continuity mistake: The close shot of the Great Wall exploding shows an edgy architecture, with straight lines. The wide shots show a curvy construction.

Continuity mistake: Luthor holds a sealed champagne bottle with both hands on the neck of it. He doesn't move them, nor his shoulders, nor do we hear any sound revealing that the bottle's being opened. However, when Luthor leaves, the bottle's seal appears opened and 20 centimeters away when the scene ends.
