Continuity mistake: Dr. Marvin and Major Huglin leave The Internal Security Commission meeting together and drive from The Pentagon to the doctor's hotel. Even though we just saw Carol and Dr. Marvin fly into Washington in an airplane he's driving the exact same make and model car that they were in at"Operation Sky Hook". Even the California license number AV-35-B7 is the same. (00:30:00)

????

Other mistake: As they travail to The Pentagon in Washington, Carol and Dr. Marvin sit in the exact same mock-up of an airplane's interior that we saw earlier in the movie when a UFO passes in front of it. (00:00:45 - 00:27:00)

Basic Instinct (1992)

Revealing mistake: When Michael Douglas pulls his car in front of Jonny Boz' house after the initial murder we hear him come to a screeching halt. If you look closely, perfect tire skid marks can be seen in the exact same spot on the road in front of his police car before it comes to a stop. (00:04:15)

????

Other mistake: Detectives Dundy and Polhaus visit Bogart at 3:40 in the middle of the night as we see the time on his alarm clock after they walk in. In the previous shot it's impossible to tell what time it is time because there are no hands on the clock. (00:11:10)

The Exorcist (1973)

Continuity mistake: Father Karras bandages his mother's leg and we see her right hand as she raises it and he says, "Mama, I could take you somewhereÂ…". In the next shot she raises her hand to her head and she now has a band-aid on her wrist. (00:20:50)

????

Continuity mistake: There's no smoke inside of the alien spaceship but if you look closely before the motorcycle cop fires his gun, smoke from a previous take can be seen swirling above their heads. (00:42:30)

????

Continuity mistake: The alien's show a Navy Destroyer being destroyed by their death rays. Later as it explodes we see the remains of an aircraft carrier. (00:40:40)

Continuity mistake: Father Karras eats dinner in his mother's apartment and the curtain on the far side of the table moves without being touched the second time we see it. (00:20:25)

????

Revealing mistake: When Carol, Dr. Marvin and the others enter the alien spaceship it's obvious by the sound that that they are walking on plywood made to look like metal. (00:37:10)

The Exorcist (1973)

Continuity mistake: Before Father Karras walks into his mother's apartment the lights are on. In the next shot as he walks in the lights are off and he turns them on. (00:19:10)

????

Revealing mistake: As the alien's speak to Carol, Dr. Marvin and the others inside their spaceship, they use the exact same footage again of them looking at the video screen as they leave earth even though one minute of movie time has elapsed. (00:39:25)

????

Continuity mistake: The alien's speak to Carol, Dr. Marvin and the others and show them a Navy Destroyer on their video screen firing on an alien spaceship. If you look closely the guns on the ship are not aimed at the alien spaceship. (00:40:35)

24th Jan 2007

The Exorcist (1973)

Continuity mistake: In the scene in their basement Chris brings the Ouija board over to the ping pong table and Regan puts the paddle down with the ball underneath. In the next shot the paddle is there but the ball disappears. (00:22:45)
