Tremors 3: Back to Perfection

Revealing mistake: When the group comes across the first ass-blaster, it hops out from behind the fence. Pay attention to its right leg when it jumps out and you'll see a rock on the ground just appear behind it. After it spots them, it stomps a few times. While it's stomping, pay close attention to the rock and you'll see it and some of the ground around it just disappear after a few frames. This rock also isn't visible in any other part of the scene.

Factual error: Burt claims his watch updates its time "by connecting directly to the cesium clock in Colorado via ultrasonic frequency." Later the graboids home in on him by the ultrasonic sound emitted by his watch. Firstly, radio controlled watches update their time by receiving signals, but they don't emit any signals - the battery would be way too weak for two-way communication. Secondly, they work on radio waves, not sonic waves. Thirdly, if a hypothetical time transmitter did work on ultrasonics, the smallest distance between Colorado and Nevada is some 435 km (around 270 mi). An ultrasonic signal strong enough to reach that far would probably be deadly within a sizable range around the transmitter. (00:08:20)
