Flightplan (2005)

Corrected entry: When Jodie Foster is banging on the captain's door, the "air marshal" grabs her from the back. When he does that, she is pressed against the door, with the peephole by her mouth. When he says, "Can I let you go," she says "Yes." The next shot, the peephole has moved by at least a few inches.

Correction: After watching the scene the peephole does not at all move. She's pressed against the door with the peephole at her mouth, then when she turns around the peep hole is still at her mouth height and is right near her head. No movement at all.

Open Season (2006)

Corrected entry: When Shaw is on the ground near the end of the movie, a rabbit runs at him with a spoon. The spoon is facing inwards, yet Shaw's reflection is right-side up. (Slow motion may help.)

Douglas Leathem

Correction: I watched this entire sequence in slow motion (even though, if you need to watch it in slow motion to see it, it's not really a mistake). The reflection, fleeting as it is, is accurate.

Epic Movie (2007)

Corrected entry: When Edward meets the queen, she zaps the elf guy. On the second time she does it, you see the "Elf" land on the right side of the car. He gets up on the left side. He pulls forward a little bit, and if you go in slow-mode, you can see the doll in the left seat. About two or three shots later, you see another shot later where you can see the right seat, and the doll is gone.

Douglas Leathem

Correction: He could have fallen on one side but gotten up, bringing himself back into view, on the other. And if you have to use slo-mo to see the doll, it's not valid as per the rules of this site.

Star Wars (1977)

Corrected entry: When Luke (disguised as a stormtrooper) goes in the room (where Ben goes away), right when Luke closes the door, (for the first time) if you see Frame-by-frame, the door shakes left and right as it comes down. (it could be spotted through normal time, too.).

Douglas Leathem

Correction: This isn't a mistake. One could argue that the door just needs some lubricant, but even without an explanation I don't see how this could be considered an error on the part of the film makers.
