Inflatable - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Kim has finished her interview she goes to the roof car park and lights a cigarette whilst the camera shows the street with parked cars. When she reaches into her purse to tear up the WM business card two of the vehicles have disappeared - a white car and a van which had its hazards flashing. All happens in under 8 seconds. In the same scene, when she unlocks her car it is in a bright patch of sunshine, in the close up it's all in shade. (00:37:20)

Zathura (2005)

Revealing mistake: When Walter, Danny and the astronaut are in the kitchen breaking stuff to burn, the smaller boy tries to smash an old style broom on the table. He tries three times, on his final try the shank breaks in half, revealing where it had been sawn nearly all the way through in nice clean line, with only a splintery piece showing where it really snapped.

Deadlock

Continuity mistake: When in the first pub and it turns out one guy is tee-total and will only drink water, there is a shot of the glass from the inside as the pint of water is drunk down to the bottom. In the next shot, from the side of the table, the glass has some in - around 1/3 full.

The Terminator (1984)

Revealing mistake: When the Terminator goes in to the Alamo gun store, scene of the famous "Uzi 9 millimeter" quote, the man turns to get something off the shelf and Arnold takes a shell out of the box on the counter. It is an already fired cartridge: the dimple in the centre shows it.

Revealing mistake: When Reggie and Tim the sheriff's son are in the funeral home and get confronted by the two black women, the silver ball comes to attack and kills one of the women.

Spider-Man (2002)

Revealing mistake: When the car jacker who stole Uncle Ben's car is being chased by the police, they seem to be doing a high speed pursuit. However when the car goes over the corner and demolishes a stand, a cut shows the inside of the car. The digital speedometer is reading 15-17 mph, hardly much of a challenge for the police to catch.

Deadlock

Continuity mistake: When Marty is on Strickland's porch with the shotgun pointed at him, his hands go from in the air to down by his waist in a split second.

Deadlock

Other mistake: Ferris wants to skip school and who can blame him? In the boring lesson early in the movie, supposedly at the start of the day, look at the student's watches. They all read 6.25. (00:11:10)
