Plot hole: When Lisbeth is able to raise the bridge therefore stopping her from being chased, while the villains in the car couldn't continue chasing her, they could have continued shooting at her from the raised bridge - having an even better vantage point - but for some reason they stopped shooting.

Plot hole: When Lisbeth's techie friend "Plague" sets up outside her childhood mansion in the van with the radar dish, no-one in the mansion notices this big van with a big radar dish pointing at the mansion even when one of the villains is able to find a lone sniper "Ed Needham" on a distant hill.

Continuity mistake: Spoiler alert: At the end of the movie "Rose" stabs "Miles." We see her pull out the knife and it looks like a Rambo-type hunting knife. After she stabs him, we see the knife covered in blood but it is a different type of knife. It looks more like a skinning knife or filet knife.

Hereditary (2018)

Question: Not sure this is a movie mistake. When the mom is sawing off her own head, wouldn't the sawing have stopped once she cut through her spinal cord? The muscles in her arms/hands would have gone limp and her head would not completely fall off - though it would fall forward. You don't actually see her head fall but you hear the bang on the floor and her head is missing at the end.

Answer: There were supernatural forces at work, so basic rules of human anatomy and physics don't really apply in the situation.

Answer: When she's sawing off her own head, she's also suspended about 12 feet in the air. Afterwards, you also see the headless mom's body levitating up to the treehouse. So, obviously, there were powerful demonic forces that suspended her in the air, sawed off her head, then carried her up into the treehouse.

Hereditary (2018)

Factual error: Spoiler: In the scene toward the end of the movie when the dad is burned alive, his skin is completely black but his clothes are still on and intact, just blackened. With fire hot enough to completely blacken the skin, it would have burnt the clothes completely off (or at most they would have been shredded rags). (01:51:25)

Continuity mistake: When Lady Susan is counseling her daughter Frederica in her bedroom, the shot shows an unlit candle on a dresser behind Lady Susan. The shot changes back and forth between Frederica and Lady Susan. When the shot changes back to Lady Susan, the unlit candle is gone, though there is no one else in the room.

Factual error: When the criminal gang arrives at the Haberdashery and kills Minnie, Six-Horse Judy, et al, there is blood everywhere, including big smears on the floor. In the 1860's/70's, it would have been virtually impossible to clean up all that blood, especially on wood plank floors, but when the second stagecoach arrives carrying Major Warren, John Ruth, Daisy and Chris Mannix they don't notice that a massacre just occurred there. Even today, with much better cleaning tools and solutions, it would be hard.

Question: Maybe I saw it wrong since it happened so fast, but wasn't Minnie shot in the face initially when she was behind the counter? If so, surely she wouldn't still be alive, yet she was still alive when seen a little later on the floor where she is shot again in the stomach/chest.

odelphi

Chosen answer: You are thinking of two different characters. Jody shoots Minnie in the head. Minnie has another lady working for her, who goes to get the jellybeans for Tim Roth. It is this other lady who was shot while getting the jelly beans, and then shot again while lying on the floor.

Mr. Holmes (2015)

Continuity mistake: SPOILER: The boy, Roger, finds a glove in a secret drawer in Mr. Holmes' room. The glove is lying perfectly flat in the drawer. It had supposedly been there for years unknown to Mr. Holmes. Later, in a flashback scene, it shows Dr. Watson putting the glove in the drawer. When he puts the glove in the secret drawer, it is not laid flat in the drawer - it has an obvious upward bend in the glove. Since the glove had been in the drawer, untouched, for years, it should have still had that upward bend.

Suggested correction: Although we are only shown Watson putting the glove in the drawer once there is no reason to suggest he may not have looked at it again before he left for good. More compellingly, Watson placed the glove in the drawer whilst the bureau was in place in Holmes' quarters in London, and it was not discovered until a quarter of a century later having been moved at some point to Holmes' house in Sussex. This journey could also easily have displaced the gloves position to some degree. The weight of papers contained in the drawer above may have also aided in flattening the glove out over the years.

Max (2015)

Continuity mistake: In the scene near the end of the movie where the kidnapped father overpowers one of the bad guys and grabs his gun, he shoots out the front tire of the truck and he and Justin go running away. In the very next scene, Tyler and his buddy jump in the truck to chase the father and son and the tire on the truck is miraculously fixed and inflated.
