The Arrival

Revealing mistake: The shot of a computer showing declination (with red numbers moving) at the Oro Array is used twice, despite being two different computers in two different buildings. It is the exact same shot repeated.

Revealing mistake: When Kiki's legs "reverse" at the end of the film as he runs off, watch closely. It is clear the effect was achieved through some shoddy image-manipulation. His clothing and hands "warp" slightly a few times around his legs.

Continuity mistake: At one point Charlie Sheen is trying to get into a certain facility and is stopped by security. The guard puts his clipboard on top of the car while they talk. When Sheen kicks the car into reverse to run through the hedges the clipboard has disappeared.
