Sliver (1993)

Revealing mistake: After Naomi is thrown from her balcony in the beginning, the blood on her face has beaded down her face and is staining her blouse. This is impossible being that the injuries she received happened less than a second before and she landed face down after going through the glass, so the blood couldn't have ran down her face in that direction.

The Departed (2006)

Deliberate mistake: In all the shoot-outs, the bullets that hit the cars spark, which bullets do not do, and leave no hole, dent, or even a small scratch. They do, however, break the glass.

The Departed (2006)

Continuity mistake: When Ellerby attacks the guy for not installing the cameras in the right place, he knocks off a map from the board. A second later Ellerby is still going after him, and the map is fixed.

Revealing mistake: When Sollozzo picks up Tom Hagen after killing Luca Brasi, you can easily tell that the snow falling is made of thin plastic.

Trivia: Throughout the movie, references to the Grimm fairy tales can be seen everywhere. The 'pedophile scene' was supposed to be heavily influenced by the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale. The door mat is German for "Hansel and Gretel" in mixed up letters. Also, the name on the medicine bottle Oleg grabs is Edele Hansel. The prostitute is supposed to be the Blue Fairy, Oleg being captured by the homeless man is Little Red Riding Hood. Above all, the town's name, though never stated, is Grimley. Watch the credits for an animated visual.

Continuity mistake: When Oleg falls out of the closet, there are no tools on the closet floor. After Teresa notices the DVDs behind the clothes, she looks down and all the knives and other tools on the floor have magically appeared.

Revealing mistake: The money that the two gang members are counting in the opening view of the hotel room scene is obviously fake. Notice how white the bills are, when they should be greener and have more of the random anti-counterfeit features.

Revealing mistake: At the very beginning when Naomi is thrown from her balcony, you can see the wires in multiple shots during her descent.

Firestorm (1998)

Revealing mistake: When Suzi Amis is hanging from Howie Long's leg in the parachute scene, you can see that the stuntman is not holding on to his leg, but some kind of wire harness.

Continuity mistake: When Bruce is thrown off the truck when released from prison, you can see his bag in the background as he rolls at least 5 feet away to his right. When the angle changes and he's getting up, the bag is right in front of him, if not slightly to his left.

Revealing mistake: When Ben falls from the roof and into the leaves during the storm, you can see the mat that he lands on move from under the leaves.

Firewall (2006)

Deliberate mistake: When Harrison Ford and Mary Lynn Rajskub are crossing the tracks, its Rajskub who's driving the car, not Ford. This is because the filmmakers originally had Rajskub driving the entire way. They later refilmed the drive with Ford driving, but kept the shot of them crossing the tracks the same. Ford and director Richard Loncraine confirm this on the special features of the DVD.

Trivia: The sequence which reverses the bullet going through the window, through the bread, and into the wall, in exception for the windows shattering, was not CGI. It was Paul Walker's brother who was sitting at the table with the family. This was confirmed in the documentary on the DVD.

Windtalkers (2002)

Deliberate mistake: In countless shots showing Japanese, and some shots showing Americans, being shot, take notice of the ground that they stand on. Almost every time a bullet(s) will hit below them at their feet, yet they still fall dead. In some shots even, there is a continuous line of shots from a single shooter, hitting the ground, yet numerous Japanese soldiers fall dead.

Trivia: Director John Singleton can be seen briefly as the goalie in the Thanksgiving hockey game.

Revealing mistake: When Pitt is on the roof of Jolie's car, he breaks the window in order to get into the car. First off, when played in slow motion, the feet never do touch the glass before it explodes. Second, all newer vehicles have shatter proof glass both on the windshield and the side windows. In real life the glass would have just cracked, not blown out as it did in the film.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Pitt is chasing after Jolie, he crashes through a fence and fires his gun, hitting the car's windshield. To the left of where Pitt is, you'll notice that there's one rail missing in the middle. When he climbs through the fence to the street, the fence rail has returned, and the hole left by Pitt is now slightly wider, just enough for him to climb through.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the Smiths steal the van from the Coleman's, a cross on a rope is hanging from the rear view mirror. During the BMW chase, the rope goes from being almost a foot long to about two inches long.

Continuity mistake: When John sees the BMW's in the rear view mirror for the first time, the cross hanging from it disappears.

Continuity mistake: When Klump is singing to the microwave dinner, from the shot inside the microwave he's in the process of closing the door and the shot changes to the inside of the kitchen. Klump is now selecting the time and then closes the door.
