War of the Worlds

Factual error: The cars on the ferry would be secured by chains and should not have moved so easily across the deck. Admittedly they would break free at some point depending on the tilt. They had time to secure them, as they were already there before they arrived.

Visible crew/equipment: As Ray drives and Rachel screams, the camera crew and equipment are reflected in the window.

Movie Nut

Audio problem: When Robbie helps the people onto the ferry, his speech is out-of-sync whilst he is talking. Most noticeable when he says "Hold on".

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When the movie ends, Rachel runs to hug her mother and a strong wind blows large amounts of leaves a meter up. A frame later, from a different angle, the wind is milder and the leaves barely move.

Continuity mistake: When Ray puts his feet on the sidewalk when the intersection moves, there is a blue car in front of him that is on the side of the moving intersection. Three shots later, when we are shown the moving intersection, the blue car disappears. (00:22:40 - 00:23:55)

rockmandrum

Audio problem: When the tripod walks over the hill at the ferry scene it walks over two trees. However, the first tree it stepped on doesn't make a cracking noise as it should. The second one does.

Continuity mistake: When Rachel is watching the floating corpses in the river, the shots alternate back and forth between a wide angle where she is standing still and wind is not blowing, to a close-up where she is sobbing, moving her shoulders up and down rhythmically and her hair is moving rapidly.

Continuity mistake: When the movie ends and Ray meets his family, the street keeps swapping from sunny to shadowy back and forth.

Continuity mistake: When Ray looks at the tripod, he stands beside a car that's plain and labeled Maxium. But when Ray runs away, that car is now covered with droplets of water. (00:26:05)

rockmandrum

Continuity mistake: After the tripod appears from the hole in the ground, it bellows and pulls out its rays. In the next shot in the window's reflection, the tripod is seen pulling it out again. (00:26:00)

rockmandrum

Continuity mistake: When the intersection moves, a van is parked five feet away. When the intersection is destroyed forming a hole, the van is parked closer to the hole, allowing it to be thrown in. (00:23:10)

rockmandrum

Continuity mistake: Ray runs out of the house looking for Rachel and moves away some weeds blocking the door. When the angle changes the door is spotless.
