Wild Wild West

Other mistake: As the tarantula approaches the first small desert town (when Lovelace orders Grant to surrender the government to him), look at the townsfolk. Not one of them pays any attention to the noisy, giant metal spider as it lumbers towards the town. In fact, none of them react at all until the first building explodes. I guess giant spider robots were a common sight in the middle of the 19th century West.

Other mistake: Obviously, the spider needed a crew inside to manage its operation (feeding the boiler pressure going to keep it moving), but after West dispatches them individually, the spider seems to be able to run on its own when West and Gordon head back to Washington at the end of the film.

Suggested correction: There are still crew operating the spider, you just can't see them. Also, it's possible the thing is mostly automated, might need only 2 or 3 people in total.

Other mistake: After the water tank collapses, for several seconds there's an angle on West and he is still floating horizontally as if nothing had happened. A couple of seconds later he finally slides downwards.
