Die Hard (1988)

Visible crew/equipment: The shadow of the camera is visible right of screen when John is wrapping himself with the fire hose and asking himself why he's doing it. It lingers for some time. It looks to be a steadycam with a monitor.

Other mistake: Murtaugh is in the bathtub in the end and his kids rush in to celebrate his retirement. He's supposedly naked. Later, he pulls his wife in with him and you can tell he is wearing black underwear.

The Mask (1994)

Revealing mistake: They put the explosive down near the end and open it with a crowbar. As this is happening, the shot pushes in a tad. Notice a rough cut here as if the box wouldn't open as intended, so the editors spliced the scene together.

A Christmas Story (1983)

Visible crew/equipment: During the parade, the camera moves in and back a couple of times and the operator's shadow is visible left screen. This is really obvious after the Wizard of Oz characters walk by.

Genesis (1) - September 13, 1956 - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Al is talking to Sam near the hanger about his options regarding the pilot. When we see Sam and the back of Al's head, there is a significant shadow on Al. It isn't there in the opposite angle. On top of that, since Al is a hologram, shadows shouldn't affect him.

Revealing mistake: When Biff steals the DeLorean and flies off with it, the DeLorean disappears just before it reaches the top of the screen. It appears to just wipe out of frame before it's supposed to. This mistake is visible on the Netflix version.

Quantum Leap (1989)

Trivia: For the theatrical release, Disney cut one of the songs sung by Scrooge's girlfriend Belle. It was known as "When Love is Gone". The reasoning was that Disney felt the song was too emotionally sophisticated, and younger viewers wouldn't understand it. It was included in the VHS release and as an extra on the DVD, however the studio lost the negative and video master. When it came time to remaster the film into 4k, the footage was located. Brian Henson, the film's director, said the song will be reintroduced into the remaster. The song was not included in the Disney+ release of the film.

Audio problem: The ghost of Christmas past says "these are but shadows... they are what they are - do not blame me." Her mouth keeps moving after she stops speaking.

Suggested correction: A mouth can move without speaking, not an audio problem but a puppeteering problem that is not a mistake.

lionhead

A puppeteer problem would still be a mistake.

Maybe for the puppeteer, but in the movie it is no problem because a mouth can move without sound coming out. So what exactly went wrong?

lionhead

But practically speaking people (or puppets) don't just flap their mouth open and closed with no reason. The overwhelming probability is simply that there was a dubbing error or a line was cut and the dialogue didn't fit with the mouth movement.

The mouth opens 1 extra time. That's all.

lionhead

But it's glaring enough to be noticeable. Regardless of how or why it happened, it's a mistake.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning when Scrooge is talking to Bob, the coins on his desk change and disappear depending on the angle.
