Spider-Man 2

Continuity mistake: In the scene with Peter's "I'm back!" jump, It shows a shot from above and you can see his solid outlined shadow in front of him. However, in the very next shot it shows you a close up of Peter walking, and there is no longer a shadow there.

Continuity mistake: When Peter visits the doctor, look closely at the skeleton behind him. In the first shot, you can see two spots of light reflected on its skull; in subsequent shots, there is only one spot of light.

Other mistake: When Spider-Man shoots a single web out of each arm to stop the train, in the shots of his reactions, you can see that he is holding many webs in each hand. Then when he shoots multiple webs to try and stop the train, he has the same amount of different webs as before. Obviously they didn't have footage of him just holding a single web, and used shots from later in the sequence.

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: There are two close-ups of Peter's head when he is lying on the floor of the train: one of the shots has a black shoe with white laces very near his head, the other a blue, white, and black shoe, also right next to his head. In the wider overhead shots of Peter, no one standing around him is wearing shoes like that, nor are they standing close enough for their feet to be in the close-up shot in the first place.

Continuity mistake: When the garbage man is in Jameson's office, and Jameson is holding the Spider-Man suit, he is holding it almost at arms length to his right, yet in the following shot, it's a lot closer to his body. (01:05:50)

Quotes

May Parker: We need a hero, couragous sacrificing people, setting examples for all of us. Everybody loves a hero, people line up for 'em, cheer for them, scream their names, and years later tell how they stood in the rain for hours just to get a glimpse of the one who told them to HOLD ON a second longer. I believe theres a hero in all of us, that keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble. And finally gets us to die with pride. Even though sometimes we have to be steady and give up the thing we want most, even our dreams.
