Life (2017)

Revealing mistake: Throughout the film, the characters can be seen to impossibly pivot on the rigging suspending them in the air in a manner inconsistent with zero-g as they move through the space station.

Life (2017)

Factual error: After Dr. Derry's hand is crushed by Calvin, it dangles and flops every time it is seen so that the audience can see that the bones are severely broken. However, in zero-g, the hand would float rather than swing limply.

Moana (2016)

Plot hole: TeKa is revealed to be TeFiti. The space where she slept as an island is a huge pit in the ocean. TeKa can't touch the water, but somehow managed to travel from her resting place to the barrier islands surrounding it where she's been trapped for 1,000 years.

Stupidity: Jake uses several Loops and travels all over the world in order to get back on the boat at the end of the film. This was completely unnecessary as only the final Loop in 1942, which was available to him in 2016, was the one he needed to enter despite the fact that its nature should have prevented him from reaching 1943 anyway.

Phixius

Plot hole: At the end, Jake utilizes multiple Loops to reach September 4th, 1943, the date from which Miss Peregrine's children impossibly entered another Loop set in the winter at the beginning of 2016. The closest date prior to this was in 1942, from when Jake waits for September 4th 1943 to arrive. However, having entered a Loop in 1942, he would have been unable to reach 1943 because he'd be stuck living the same day in 1942 over and over.

Continuity mistake: When the church bell is rehung and struck, it goes from shoulder height to well above head height, then back to shoulder height in subsequent shots.

Trivia: When the pterosaur flies into the restaurant, a man in a blue denim shirt wearing a safari-brim tan fedora and a red handkerchief tied around his neck can be seen jumping away from the creature. It is not Alan Grant, but this extra was dressed in the same outfit Dr. Grant wore in the original Jurassic Park.

Unbroken (2014)

Trivia: During the Cinderella performance in the POW camp, one "sister" demands her dress be fixed so that she can woo the charming Prince Hillenbrand. Laura Hillenbrand is the author of the biography on which this film is based.

Snowpiercer (2013)

Revealing mistake: When Tanya has just died, her face goes still and she stops breathing, but you can still see her pulse beating in her neck.

Break on Through - S2-E16

Character mistake: Izzie tells the patient's mother if she doesn't want to be late for her 6:00pm job she needed to leave immediately as it is a 3 hour drive, when it is actually less than half that: 88 miles - 1 hour 20 minutes. There is only one route from Seattle to Chehalis, Interstate 5. The vast majority of the drive has speed limit of 65-70 MPH and at 3:00pm (or earlier) traffic will not be an issue.

Break on Through - S2-E16

Factual error: Izzie tells her patient, Cheyenne and her mother, Mrs. Ward that they live in the same town she grew up in - Chehalis, Washington, yet mispronounces it. She says CH-halis (like CHurch) when it is SH-halis like Chinook Salmon.

Trivia: When the mayor is giving his presentation about the plans for new development, one of the men is fiddling with a tiny black model car. He causes it to pop a wheelie and cruise down the model street; just like the black Dodge Charger Vin Diesel popped a wheelie in during his climactic race with Paul Walker, who also stars in this movie, in The Fast and the Furious.

Continuity mistake: Thyroid Gland's chain necklace disappears and reappears a few times during the first part of his fight with Damien and Lino.

Goldeneye (1995)

Trivia: The novel Casino Royale, the first James Bond novel, was originally published on April 13, 1953. Pierce Brosnan was born on May 16, 1953, making him one month and three days younger than Bond the character. This Bond film marks the first time the character had existed longer than the actor playing him.

Continuity mistake: At one point near the beginning of the infiltration of the helicarriers, Captain America's chinstrap has a twist from his right jaw down to where it covers his chin. This is visible in two shots. The next time his right side is shown afterward, the twist is gone. The chinstrap is too tight for it to have flipped on its own accidentally, and the pad which covers his chin is molded so it wouldn't have sat properly on his face even if it had somehow flipped around. There were undoubtedly several prop helmets made, and this one must have been put together incorrectly.

Episode #4.4 - S4-E4

Character mistake: When everyone is preparing to go in to dinner, Robert is wearing an adjustable bow tie. It's bad enough he's wearing black tie to dinner when he has guests, as his mother points out, but Robert, the Earl of Grantham, absolutely would not be seen wearing an adjustable tie with a stand up shirt collar, even among only his immediate family.

Arrow (2012)

Blast Radius - S2-E10

Deliberate mistake: The "chest compressions" Diggle performs on Oliver at the beginning of this episode are laughable. He's barely applying any pressure at all, and his arms are almost straight out in front of him instead of straight down. I would have called this a character mistake since Diggle really ought to know better, but this is more of a safety issue than an oversight; real chest compressions tend to break ribs.

Elysium (2013)

Audio problem: Throughout the film, Jodie Foster's dialogue does not sync up with the movements of her mouth, indicating most if not all of her lines were re-dubbed after filming.

Phixius

Factual error: Johnny shows Mavis the sunrise by keeping her back in the shadows. But if your whole body is in an object's shadow then you can't see the light source. The rising sun is reflected dead center in Mavis' eyes, which means the sunlight is touching her, which means she ought to be on fire.

Phixius

Continuity mistake: After Oz and Theodora have climbed down from the small cave where they hid from their first encounter with a flying baboon and are having a brief conversation, the brim of Theodora's hat alternates from being held up on her right side in the shots from behind her, and being down as it normally is in the shots from in front of her. Presumably this was done to prevent the hat brim from obscuring Oz's face.
