Common mistakes

Factual error: Any modern movie that is a period piece depicting the 1920s or 1930s shows old dilapidated houses with paint peeling off. Other things are obviously aged and weathered. Things like screen doors are rusty, or a gas station pump is weathered and obviously old. In reality, these things were relatively new back then. The paint on the house should look normal, and nothing should be rusty or weathered since they had not yet had the chance to age.

Suggested correction: Just because a house or building from the 20's or 30's would be old now doesn't mean they didn't also have old house back then too. Plus, the rusted, paint peeling, etc is indicating poverty and the hardship times of that era. People didn't worry about small repairs and cosmetics when they didn't have food.

Common mistakes

Other mistake: A TV will be turned on exactly at the moment an important plot point is being explained or shown. Typically it will be a news story that a news anchor will tell from the beginning. Never is the TV turned on with a commercial playing or some other news being read.

Common mistakes

Audio problem: No matter the size of the gun, or where the gun is fired, it always sounds like a huge shotgun going off in a echo-heavy canyon.

Continuity mistake: When Ethan is chasing Walker up the brick tower, the hatch to the roof is in the middle of the tower when seen from the inside. However, in the exterior shot, we see that there is no hatch where Ethan is pretending to be exiting. Later we see the exit to the roof is on the side of the building.
