Die Hard (1988)

Visible crew/equipment: At the end when all of the papers are falling from the building, there is a wide shot. On the right hand side of the shot looks to be some kind of blower machine making the papers come out.

Wayne's World (1992)

Revealing mistake: A jump cut is visible when Frankie Sharp starts receiving the show in his limo. Notice how his feet shift slightly when the image changes.

Welcome to Marwen (2018)

Continuity mistake: When Roberta comes over to give Mark the doll he left at the shop, we see an animated sequence just before this. The character in the animated sequence gets her top ripped open. In the real life version, the doll has more of its shirt ripped open.

Revealing mistake: Near the beginning as the helicopter arrives to take the boy away, a man steps on a tumbleweed. The weed bends as he steps on it, and it is flat. It is a prop.

Vegas Vacation (1997)

Continuity mistake: When Sid Ceaser is fake-dying near the end, his head rolls backwards. In the next shot his head is on his right shoulder.

SLC Punk! (1998)

Trivia: The scene filmed on Ensign Peak during the acid trip, uses a shot from Terminator 2 to simulate Salt Lake City being destroyed by a nuclear blast.

SLC Punk! (1998)

Factual error: The Wells Fargo Center is visible in multiple shots throughout the film. It was built in 1998, the same year the film was shot. It was certainly not around when the film was set, 1985.

SLC Punk! (1998)

Visible crew/equipment: When Steve-O is talking to his father in the car, at one point a crew member can be seen reflected in the door. He's visible enough that you can see him shift his weight. He appears to be standing next to the camera which is also visible at times.

Pet Sematary (1989)

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the table where Jud admits he is to blame for what happened to Gage, Louis is talking to him and the scene cuts to a wide shot. As Louis is talking he is looking at Jud and has his mouth open. Cut, and his head is down and his mouth closed.

Under Siege (1992)

Continuity mistake: When Segal is creating the distraction in the kitchen with the microwave, he pours liquid on the sponge. In the next shot the sponge is deeper into the cup. When he puts it in the microwave it jumps back out of the cup.

Continuity mistake: The whole sequence after Brill blows up his building features changing skies. At first its partially cloudy, and then sunny with blue sky. Finally when they are going toward the highway, the sun is setting.

Audio problem: When the family is atop the Eiffel Tower and Rusty is flirting with a woman, a dog barks but it doesn't make a bark motion. When we see it bark a second time it actually is barking.

Speed (1994)

Factual error: The bomber wants his money by 11 am. The sun should be almost directly overhead. Why then are there late afternoon-early evening shadows at the end of the film?

Speed (1994)

Continuity mistake: After Jack discovers the camera, we see what the camera is seeing in Howard's apartment on the screen. Where is Jack? He was just standing next to Annie. He should be front and center in the shot but he is nowhere to be found. The shot is wide enough that even if he was leaning out the door we'd still see him. When we see the monitor again later, he is there.

Speed (1994)

Continuity mistake: When Jack is under the bus there is a shot from the driver's side that shows the vehicle pacing the bus. The two people that were standing on that vehicle are gone. They are back the next time we see it (when the bolt snaps).
