Character mistake: Anya says she stole the blueprints two years ago for the submarine car she was riding in with Bond, yet she seemed to be completely unaware she was in such a car when the car first went into the water.

Goldeneye (1995)

Plot hole: When Alec reveals himself to be Janus and that he was alive all that time Alec scolds Bond for re-setting the timer at three minutes instead of six. The problem is if Alec had realised Bond reset the timer on the explosive then he should have had plenty of time to leave the building after Bond escaped, so he shouldn't have been injured.

Moonraker (1979)

Revealing mistake: When Bond hits the button to throw the space station out of its gravity and sends everyone out of position look at the command console manned by the two Drax henchmen, the prop used for the console laughably moves back and forth during the commotion.

Moonraker (1979)

Revealing mistake: When Bond is looking at the airport through the telescope in Rio he sees the Drax cargo plane coming down the runway but just seconds before in the wide shot of the whole airport there is no plane on the runway or anywhere near it.

Plot hole: When Buford is talking to Bandit in the diner (unaware he's the Bandit) he says the Bandit nearly killed 20 law officers. How would Buford be aware of any of that, when the only other police Bandit and Buford were involved with before that was Sheriff Bradford and his deputy?

Goldeneye (1995)

Other mistake: It's quite convenient for the plot that Natalya knew about both Goldeneye satellites but never seemed to know where Mischa was operated from otherwise she and Bond could have gone to Cuba without having to spike Boris' location.

Toy Soldiers (1991)

Revealing mistake: When all the students are let out of the school at the end of the film, Billy is shown different times approaching his friends from behind.

jbrbbt

Plot hole: If a fake burial at sea and a picture in the newspaper was enough to convince Bond's enemies that he was dead, was it really necessary to have him shot at in the bed at the beginning? We learn later that the girl he was with was part of the fake death (and probably the gunmen too) so couldn't Bond's people have just started with the newspaper and burial at sea to begin with rather than risking his life in the process?

Revealing mistake: When young Flint is showing his class his Spray-On Shoes we see the shoes of the class with their untied laces but when the camera is moving towards Flint from behind the class none of the laces are dangling.

jbrbbt

Plot hole: When Flint gets to his lab to shut down the machine he finds the mayor there inputting more food. The mayor says he's been ordering food for ten minutes, how is this possible when he was just there with Flint on the stage barely a minute or so before? Also, how did the mayor manage to get his large self back to Flint's lab so quickly?

U.S. Marshals (1998)

Other mistake: When Royce tells Gerard he's going after Roberts after noticing him in the trees he takes his finger off the transmit button on his radio halfway into telling Gerard he's going after Roberts, but Gerard responds as if he heard everything Royce said.

Revealing mistake: Look closely at the device Bond is using to open Osato's safe. Before he presses the button to reveal the individual number you can see what the number is going to be.

Continuity mistake: When Bond begins to make his way towards the rooms where the American and Russian astronauts are being held captive the announcer in the control room says interception will take place in two hours but then barely a minute or so later the announcer says "100 minutes." Somehow twenty minutes disappeared in just the time it took Bond to hide in the tram car.

U.S. Marshals (1998)

Audio problem: When Gerard tells Royce and Cosmo to take the left side of the van while he and Newman take the right his mouth isn't moving when he says it.

Gremlins (1984)

Plot hole: The whole film is basically told as a flashback from Rand Peltzer's point of view. Now he might be able to talk about things that Billy, his mom, or Kate might have told him, but he wouldn't have known about all the other the gremlins did to the rest of the town like killing Mrs. Deagle, the cops, or the gremlin in the mailbox.

Character mistake: The coroner says the pump was shot with a full mag from a magnum which is six rounds but the pimp was only shot with five.

Dr. No (1962)

Dr. No mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Dent walks into the room to be questioned by Dr. No we don't see the table with the spider cage in the first side shot but Dent only walks a few feet from the chair, and suddenly there's a table. (00:38:00)

Dr. No (1962)

Plot hole: It's assumed that Dr. No had Professor Dent slip the spider into Bond's hotel room that night but if it were that easy to do that then why not just hide an assassin in the room to begin with. Someone had to be in the room to tamper with Bond's briefcase, the closet, and possibly the bottle of liquor so just hide an assassin instead of waiting for the spider to kill Bond. (00:40:00)

Moonraker (1979)

Revealing mistake: When Jaws brings Bond and Holly to the command center of the space station Drax is sitting down in his chair then suddenly in the next shot he's standing without having moved.
