Plot hole: When Lara and Kosa are leading the 20 natives in search of Pandora's box, Lara suddenly slows down and says, "We're getting closer." One of the natives (the one who said he'd stay with them to the end) says something to Kosa. Kosa says to Lara, "He wants to know how you knew (that they were getting closer)." Since Kosa had been translating in both directions, how did the native know that Lara said "We're getting closer"? An earlier response to this indicated that maybe the native "knew a few words of English". If you think about it, that's impossible seeing as how this would have been his first contact with the language. From the moment that Lara arrives in the native village, Kosa translates in both directions for everybody. (01:24:10)

King Kong (2005)

Continuity mistake: Just before the wall is spotted, Jimmy is in the open crow's nest reading "Heart of Darkness". He puts the book down and stands up. In the next few shots, the book has completely disappeared. Then the ship takes a pounding for 3 or 4 minutes. But a few minutes later there's Jimmy, once again reading the same book.

Continuity mistake: Toward the end, Major Cain storms aboard the helicopter, shouting "Why haven't we taken off, yet?" The shot switches to LJ (Mike Epps)in one of the pilot's seats. As he says, "Because I normally drive Cadillacs" he punches out at Cain with his left hand. In the reaction shot, however, as Cain flies backward, the punching hand is LJ's right hand. (01:12:55)

School of Rock (2003)

Continuity mistake: In the classroom scene just prior to the naming of the band, Dewey is seated with his feet on his desk playing his guitar. The two girls approach him with the SOR T-shirt. From their perspective (front) there is nothing near Dewey's feet, but when the view switches to Dewey's perspective, the rabbit on the desk is now only an inch or so from his foot. In the wide shot the rabbit is nearly a foot away. (01:02:15)

Continuity mistake: When Bud dies from the snake bite, his body is lying at an angle to the counter and his right leg is bent. Later, when Elle catapults over the counter and lands on Bud's body, it's parallel to the counter and his right leg is straight. (01:02:30 - 02:15:05)

Continuity mistake: During the fight in the restaurant, the Bride is surrounded by a large group of Yakuza. In a shot from behind her, she is staring at the opponents in front of her over the edge of her horizontally held blade. One of the masked villains is swinging a chain in an arc. A moment later the shot cuts to an overhead and the guy with the chain has disappeared - everyone in front of the bride (as well as to the rear and sides) are holding swords. (01:22:30)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the fight between Oren and the Bride in the garden, Oren puts the sword up to eye level and starts to withdraw the blade from the scabbard. The shot switches to a view from behind her and we see the back of her head. The eye-level sword, however, is nowhere to be seen. When the shot switches back to Oren's face, the sword has reappeared.

Kill Bill: Volume 1 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the fight at Venita's house, she overturns a large shelving unit onto the Bride. A shot from the floor (behind the Bride's head) shows nothing on the floor to the right. As the shelving begins to fall, a basket of magazines suddenly appears and the left edge of the unit is seen falling to the outside of the basket. A moment later Venita bolts for the kitchen and the shot cuts back to the Bride. The basket is now outside the edge of the unit (and some of the shelves themselves have disappeared as well).

Paycheck (2003)

Continuity mistake: As the truck is approaching the car from Allcom, the view is from the interior of the car (front window, the vertical panel between the windows, rear window) and the semi is right on top of the car. It switches to a wide shot and now the truck is considerably farther back. (01:13:30)

Paycheck (2003)

Continuity mistake: When Mike goes to meet the fake "Rachel" at the restaurant, note the yellow flowers on her table. They are centered, but against the edge of the table (where a person opposite her would sit). The next shot of Jimmy's screen shows they've moved to the far right (as seen from the fake's perspective). When Mike opens the envelope, they've disappeared completely and, a moment later, they're back (with some of the leaves curled around the stem of a wine glass). (01:06:20)

Paycheck (2003)

Continuity mistake: After the real Rachel has knocked out the fake Rachel, Mike looks over her shoulder and sees Colm Feores' character sighting a gun on her. He pulls her to the side and, in doing so, knocks over two wine glasses that were on the table. Then the shot switches to show the view from the window and the wine gasses have disappeared. A moment later as Mike and Rachel fall to the floor, they're back. (01:10:15)

Paycheck (2003)

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy conks Mike on the head with the cannister (during the fight in the lab), there is a large strand of cable around Jimmys' neck. In the next shot, as he starts to stand up, the cable has disappeared. (01:44:05)

Continuity mistake: When Aragorn beheads the mouth of Sauron, his left cheek is splashed with a fair amount of black blood which drips downward. In the very next shot of Aragorn's face, the amount of blood has been reduced to a few dried spots. (01:11:45)

Continuity mistake: When Lex and the Predator are running through the tunnel and neither of them has the spear that the Predator built for her. Then later spear is back. Then after the sled crashes, its gone again. For the remainder of the sequence, the Predator has it. (01:19:15 - 01:20:40)
