Continuity mistake: After Claire hits Frank in the head with the door, she kneels down to help him up, and she has no purse. In the next shot she has a brown purse in plain sight on her left shoulder.

Scrooged (1988)

Continuity mistake: When Frank sees what he thinks is the Ghost of Christmas Future in the elevator, he flips out and accidentally clocks Grace in the jaw. She puts her right hand to her face, but in the next shot she's holding her left hand up.

Breakdown (1997)

Continuity mistake: When Kurt Russell is fighting in the car with the guy he gave the ransom money to, the car sideswipes a rock wall and the passenger-side rearview mirror gets torn off. A couple shots later it's right back where it should be.

The Village (2004)

Revealing mistake: When Ivy is running along the path in the woods, right before she bumps into the wall there are two large tree branches lying in her way. She shortens her steps and hops over both of them, even though her walking stick never touches them and she should have no indication that they're there.

Continuity mistake: When Budd pours the margaritas, in the closeup both glasses have the same amount in them, but when he picks them up one glass has noticeably more than the other.

Question: How did Balian, a peasant, get to be literate at the beginning of the film, before he leaves with his father? He reads what's carved into the wooden beam over his workplace.

Krista

Chosen answer: Who says he was reading it, someone could have told him what it said, so he knew what the beam says rather than read it.

Continuity mistake: When Mary of Guise and Walsingham are talking at the table, Mary picks up a small knife. In some shots the handle is in her right hand, and in other shots it's in her left hand.

Poltergeist (1982)

Continuity mistake: When the dog jumps in the back of the cab, he gets in the right side and Robbie is nowhere to be seen. It cuts away very briefly, and when it cuts back suddenly Robbie is very much on the right side of the seat and the dog is on the left- not enough time for them to have moved and settled in.

General questions

Question: I saw on TV a long time ago (early 1980's) a scene where lobsters were crawling out of everyone's drains and chasing people. It was live action, not animated, but I don't know if this was a TV show or a movie. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Krista

Chosen answer: I believe this was a commercial for the Nickelodeon network.

General questions

Question: I saw a film as a kid that I think was Chinese or Japanese. There was a giant that looked like it was made out of metal. It was walking through towns and people were running and screaming, and it was also walking through water- a lake or the ocean. In a later scene was a very violent martial arts fight, with guys throwing each other against the walls. Anyone know what it is?

Krista

Chosen answer: Not sure, but it may be the movie Daimajin or one of its two sequels. They were made (Japanese) in the mid-late sixties and concerned a giant warrior that could be summoned to help the villagers against evil invaders. I found the first movie on vhs from e-bay. The tape was released by a.d.v. films in the U.S.

Continuity mistake: We see D'Artagnan's grave at the end, and there is no flower on it. We then see the queen mother who is holding a rose, but she walks off with it. Cut back to the grave, and a rose has suddenly appeared there.

Other mistake: When the Musketeers are charging the firing squad at the end, they only have about 20 yards to run which they should cover in just a couple seconds, but somehow it takes them much longer to reach the other men. This is especially noticeable since they're running at full speed. (This has nothing to do with editing or slow-motion, as most of the shots are shown in real time, at regular speed.)

Marty (1955)

Continuity mistake: In the first scene at the butcher shop, from one angle Marty has finished cutting the meat and his arms are down. But when it cuts to another angle, he's still cutting the meat.
