Aliens (1986)

Continuity mistake: As the ship carrying the marines to the planet where communication has been down for too long, the pilot of the ship says, "Where's the damn beacon? Oh, I see it." But when she says the last bit, there is no vision of the beacon; it only comes into sight a few seconds later.

Character mistake: When Jennifer Garner goes to see Raiana, she's wearing her white doctor's coat, which is ridiculous - doctor's never wear their white coats outside of the hospital; if they did, the coats would be contaminated with gas fumes, brushing up against garbage, all sorts of things could contaminate them, making them totally unclean.

Other mistake: At the end, James and Honey jump into a small boat, and after James has dealt with the two men in the boat, Honey deals with the front tender, but no-one deals with the rear tender - we can see it rising out of the water, but somehow it is no longer attached to the boat. (01:43:50)

Irma la Douce (1963)
