Quantum Leap (1989)

M.I.A. - April 1, 1969 - S2-E22

Trivia: According to the script, Beth really does feel Al dance with her briefly before he leaps, even though he is a hologram. She says his name after he leaps out as an acknowledgement that she knew he was there. This is one of the few episodes we see Al leap instead of Sam.

Audio problem: As Neil is talking to his coworker about getting on a plane, the audio is either different or synced wrong, as the coworker says something different. In the shot facing Neil his mouth doesn't match.

Citizen Kane (1941)

Trivia: Welles worked 16 to 18 hour days on the film, as it took nearly four hours to apply his makeup to make him look older. Welles also shot the film quickly, with very few takes as he wanted to be like John Ford. Some of the film's more significant scenes were shot before production actually began as Welles had claimed he was doing "camera tests" and RKO believed him.

Citizen Kane (1941)

Trivia: Welles learned how to make films by watching what other directors were doing at the time, especially John Ford. In particular, he would watch Ford's "Stagecoach" nightly and ask his cinematographer how certain shots were done. Welles makes a nod to Ford by using a couple of Ford's most infamous shots. This includes a moving camera going through an opening door as the character walks through.

Continuity mistake: During the battle on Planet Doom, Art3mis jumps into the DeLorean to tell Parzival that they're "playing Adventure." She jumps in through the windshield. When the shot changes the hole in the windshield is now larger.

Black Summer (2019)

Summer School - S1-E3

Stupidity: Rose shoots at Ryan after he has turned and is fighting with Spears. The bullets go through him. Wouldn't she hit Spears too, as he's directly in the line of fire? She's shooting relatively close.

Black Summer (2019)

Drive - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: Multiple times when we see the speedometer of the minivan, the RPMs aren't moving. The car's shifter is also noticeably in park. This is obvious as its higher, whereas if were in drive, it would be lower. Even during the most intense moments, the RPMs never change. The car is obviously being towed by a camera vehicle.

Continuity mistake: Joey gets killed, and the boys are holding back Billy. There's an issue here though. The scars from his lashings on his back that we saw moments earlier have disappeared.

Citizen Kane (1941)

Other mistake: In the extremely low angle shot where Leland is drunk talking to Kane, a black visible object is stuck to the frame of the camera, bottom left. As Kane walks out of the shot, the camera pans up and it is gone.

Audio problem: When Kane is talking to Mr. Carter about what the Inquirer should be printing, we see a shot of Kane talking from behind. His mouth movements are slightly off from the audio.
