The Dark Knight (2008)

Continuity mistake: When Bruce Wayne is talking to Alfred while having his arm stitched, in shots from the side he's looking downwards, but in other shots he's looking up towards Alfred. This keeps switching, shot to shot.

Watchmen (2009)

Watchmen trivia picture

Trivia: This is for the trailer rather than for the final film, but worth a look. At 1:33 in the trailer, just after seeing Rorschach slam someone against a wall, we see another fight. Pause it and look at the guy in black - he's holding a walkie-talkie, which in the next shot becomes a gun. This is only trivia, not a mistake, because it's only valid for the trailer. The MPAA don't allow guns to be pointed at the screen in trailers, so Zack Snyder, in a tribute to the infamous gun-editing from E.T., replaced the gun in that one shot with a walkie-talkie.

Bones (2005)

The Graft in the Girl - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: When Bones goes to open the vent on the wall in the mortuary while standing on the coffin, the shot from inside the grate shows her taking a step up and being exactly at head height for it. Only problem is that in the shot previous to this she was significantly short of the grate, and there was nothing on the coffin lid for her to step up onto.

Bones mistake picture

The Graft in the Girl - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: When Angela asks to see the girl's drawing, in the shot from the girl's perspective as she hands the pad over, the painting's quite small in the centre of the page. When it then cuts to Angela's point of view it takes up nearly the whole page. (00:02:45)

Doctor Who (2005)

Silence in the Library (1) - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: After Miss Evangelista is killed, we see her communicator as her "ghost" slowly fades. In one shot we see from a slight distance the lights left lit tick down to 3, then a short while passes, we cut back and the lights are back to 4. They then tick down to 3 again.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Indy starts climbing up the cliff after the water bursts through, we see a close-up of the back of his shirt, and there's one small tear quite high up. We cut to a wide shot, and now there are several quite wide rips across the back of his shirt. (01:36:30)

Doctor Who (2005)

Partners in Crime - S4-E1

Other mistake: The security guards shoot away the lock on the door, which they then kick down with no real effort. But the door would still be held in place by the hinges - they don't kick it with enough force to rip the hinges out, and even if they had, we can see that there's no damage on the hinge side of the door anyway to demonstrate their forcible removal.

Trivia: A Wilhelm scream can be heard during the beach volleyball/fighting scene - a henchman is thrown off a balcony and emits one as he falls.

The Bank Job (2008)

Factual error: We see Jason Statham walking into a shop in 1971 which has a Visa/Barclaycard logo on the door. Only problem with that is that the name Visa wasn't brought in until 1977.

Continuity mistake: When Popeye's being shot at by the sniper, he's hiding behind a tree and rolls towards a wall that's relatively well-lit by sunshine. The angle changes and it's now completely in shadow.
