The Revenant (2015)

Continuity mistake: Hugh's wounds change from when he cuts open the horse to the ending when he is sitting inside the shack. Specifically, a wound on his right shoulder is there and gone between those two sequences. His back wounds also change considerably.

Other mistake: The power is cut to the satellite facility near the end, but Sheen manages to raise a powered window curtain to look outside.

The Arrival (1996)

Revealing mistake: The shot of a computer showing declination (with red numbers moving) at the Oro Array is used twice, despite being two different computers in two different buildings. It is the exact same shot repeated.

The Arrival (1996)

Factual error: At the Oro Array, the breakers are turned off because the power is cut. When the alien cuts the cables to the computers, sparks fly out as if there is power.

Inside Out (2015)

Plot hole: Joy and Sadness are stuck outside of the control center. They are trying to figure out how to get back, and encounter maintenance workers who are discarding old memories. The maintenance workers show that they have the power to send memories back up to the control center to be played. Why couldn't they send the core memories that Joy had back up the same way? Better yet, why not use that method to send Joy and Sadness back up to the control center? The director of the film is even aware of the plot hole, and said "Yeah, well then we wouldn't have a third act," before explaining how the idea of recalling memories was added in later, "box[ing] [the screenwriters] in a corner a little bit."

Suggested correction: Even if they do send the core memories up to headquarters, they wouldn't be able to get joy and sadness through the tiny gap that the workers send the memories up. Joy has to be in headquarters for Riley to be happy.

This mistake is large enough that the director is aware of it. I think that more than qualifies it to be on this site.

Suggested correction: Joy is a control freak, she wants to return the memories herself. She doesn't even imagine that the workers can do such a thing.

Revealing mistake: Near the beginning of the film, young George already has blood coming out of his ears prior to them being slapped by Mr. Gower.

The Santa Clause (1994)

Revealing mistake: When the elves are tying up the police officer at the station, they do so in a really quick manner. The film here is obviously sped up. You can tell this by the fact that the children playing the elves are breathing really fast.

The Santa Clause (1994)

Revealing mistake: When George comes home flustered, his kids are hanging on him. Right after Mary closes the door keeping the littlest boy out, she walks into the kitchen. Watch this scene carefully as the camera tracks backwards. A bad jump cut is obvious.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning in the soda shop, the first little girl (Mary) is facing toward the camera, away from the other girl that comes in. When they start talking however in the next shot, both are facing outward.

Visible crew/equipment: Just as Clark begins his explosive argument, there is a shot of the family watching in horror, and the top of the set is visible at the top of the frame.

Audio problem: During dinner on Christmas Eve there is a shot of the cat chewing on Christmas lights. The sound of the cat chewing is a fraction of a second off.

Quantum Leap (1989)

Revealing mistake: When Daniel and Kumiko first see the storm coming near the end of the film, the wind outside is blowing the trees sideways. They open the door to run out and the camera shows what is outside. The trees there are not moving.

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning of the ark chase sequence, Indy jumps into a truck off a horse and fights the driver. He pushes the driver up against the door. At the bottom of the frame you can see the camera shadow. (01:23:35)
