Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

Revealing mistake: When Yoda knocks Darth Sidious backwards over his chair, you can see the stuntman's hand. Sidious's hands are old and his nails are dark around the cuticles, but the hand during the flip is perfectly healthy and a different size. (01:45:35)

Revealing mistake: When Grievous and Obi-wan are fighting, as Grievous hits Obi-wan making him fly through the air hitting his vessel, it is quite obvious it is a stunt double instead of Ewan McGregor. (01:03:45)

Mortug

Revealing mistake: After the battle between Obi-Wan and Anakin/Darth Vader, Vader lies badly burned on the ground slowly crawling up. Palpatine's shuttle flies by, as seen by a shadow. However, even the lava in the shadow turns dark, like the lava is glowing from an external light source instead of glowing within itself. (00:57:50)

Thierry88

Revealing mistake: Computer generated characters that have light sabers (like Yoda) show a glow on them from their sabers when they are on. All "live action" Jedi do not.

Continuity mistake: When Obi-Wan meets Anakin on the landing bay of the volcanic planet, Obi-Wan comes down the ramp from the ship and removes his cloak. It lays across the end of the ramp. The shot changes, then comes back, and the cloak is now bunched off to one side. (01:42:30)

Trivia: General Grievous is permanently coughing when he talks. The cause is revealed in the last episode of the animated Emmy-winning TV series "Clone Wars" (albeit technically no longer canon). In that episode, Grievous kidnaps Palpatine and before leaving, is attacked by Mace Windu, who destroys part of his chest armour, making him cough for the first time.

Question: During the lightsaber duel on Mustafar, why does Anakin even bother to try to make the jump that he afterwards regretted? Couldn't he had just simply used the force to push the lava towards Obi-Wan, killing him, and then make the jump to safety?

Answer: Maybe, but he is overconfident and impulsive. He has also let rage blind him. Anakin is probably the better fighter of the two, but Obi-Wan kept his cool and analyzed as he fought while Anakin fought angrily and ultimately foolishly which left an opening for Obi-Wan to maim him. It's said in almost every episode of Star Wars not to let fear and anger cloud your judgement. Here are the results.
