The Book of Eli (2010)

Question: In the beginning of the film, Eli kills the cat with the arrow. He has donned a full gas mask and protective clothing. If the air was bad enough that he was not able to breathe it for fear of toxic fallout, how could he have eaten the cat and not gotten radioactive poisoning anyway?

Chosen answer: I believe Eli was donning such protective gear, not as a means to protect himself from fall-out or any other such dangers but rather, as a means to mask his scent from the wild animals he was hunting. He would have been 'sniffed out' otherwise and nothing would have even come close.

It was camouflage.

The Book of Eli (2010)

Continuity mistake: When Eli has the confrontation with the gang in the beginning he cuts the leader's hand off with his sword. When you see the sword in the very next shot, the blood is only on the edge of the sword and not smeared across it as it should be.

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Agent Kujan realizes who Soze is, he drops his coffee cup and it breaks in slo-mo. If you look closely, you can see that the bottom of the cup does not have the red writing on it. (I will not give away what the red writing is, as it may be a spoiler).

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Molly goes through the metal detector in the airport, she is asked by the obnoxious scanner to take her belt off. After she takes her belt off she walks through the detector and you can that she is still wearing the belt.

Funny Farm (1988)

Continuity mistake: When Chevy Chase gets out of the water after he jumps into the lake from the fishing boat, he walks directly to his car completely soaking wet and sits in it. Less than 15 seconds later, his wife, who was chatting with the Sheriff walks back to the car and he is almost completely dry, except for his hair.
