Alien (1979)

Trivia: When Kane encounters the alien eggs, some droplets of the dark liquid that covers them can be seen falling upwards instead of downwards. This is because the egg was in fact upside down when it was filmed and the shot was inverted to show the otherworldly nature of the eggs.

Character mistake: Right before the door of the tomb closes and traps one of the Mondoshawans inside at the beginning of the film, the Priest says "hurry, you still have time". But there is not enough room left for the Mondoshawan to squeeze through.

Nosferatu (1922)

Plot hole: When Nosferatu is caught in the sunlight towards the end, his reflection can be seen in the tall standing mirror in the corner of the room. This makes no sense because vampires do not cast reflections. Deliberate or not, in the original Bram Stoker novel, there is a scene in which the character Harker is shaving, and is disturbed to see that the Count casts no reflection. There is also a passage that states, "He throws no shadow, he make in the mirror no reflect." Some would argue that the rising of the sun robs him of his powers, giving him the reflection. But his reflection is visible before the rooster starts crowing, before the sun even rises.

Angel (1999)

Redefinition - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: After Wesley, Cordelia and Gunn sing "We Are The Champions" and Cordelia mentions tequila being evil, we see Wesley put aside some shot glasses. These glasses change position three times throughout the rest of the scene without anybody touching them.

The Red Door - S1-E4

Factual error: Richmond says that the song "Coffin Fodder" is track 4 on the Cradle Of Filth album that he gives as a gift at the funeral. In reality, it is track 9.

Kick-Ass (2010)

Revealing mistake: When Hit-Girl and Big Daddy are practising with bulletproof vests, the dummy used when Hit-Girl falls to the ground is visible. It bounces unlike a real human body and the position of her right hand and both her legs move between shots.

Audio problem: After Batman has left Andrea's apartment she drops a glass. We hear the sound of the glass shattering, but when the camera zooms out we see the glass is still in one piece.

Other mistake: In the scene where Andrea is being sucked into the fan at the Gotham worlds fair, Batman rides in on his motorcycle. He turns into the fan to rescue her, but his cape is flapping in the opposite direction in which the fans are sucking.

Revealing mistake: When John, Kate and the Terminator are in the Winnebago, there is a shot that's facing Kate where John says to her that they're going to pull the plug on Skynet and that the bombs won't fall. In this shot, look at John's hair. The green screen is reflected onto it. It is visible throughout the rest of the scene.

Revealing mistake: When Poison Ivy and Bane take over the street gang's lair, they try to take down Bane by wrapping chains around his arms. As he throws them over his head, one of the thugs still attached to their chain causes Bane to move backwards slightly. Kind of unlikely considering how strong Bane is.

Continuity mistake: After Bruce proposes to Andrea and he drops her off at home, she is wearing the ring on her left hand when she is inside his car. But once she steps out of it, the ring completely disappears.

Nosferatu (1922)

Revealing mistake: When Count Orlok has loaded the crates onto the cart, he climbs into the last one and the lid "levitates" into place. This trick is achieved by stop-motion animation, but the cart horses do not hold their position and shatter the illusion - their heads unnaturally jerk about while the lid is in motion.

Revealing mistake: When Gotham City is frozen by Mr. Freeze, there is a shot of a telephone box. The icicles on the telephone box wobble as though they are made of plastic.

Revealing mistake: When Mr. Freeze knocks out the two guards after being released from the fridge, one of the guards falls against the fridge causing it to wobble. A big heavy fridge like that should not wobble.

Revealing mistake: When the police attempt to arrest Mr. Freeze, he makes his escape with his freezing equipment on a cart. As he pushes the cart, the frozen icicles on it move as though they are made of plastic.
