Blade: Trinity (2004)

Factual error: When Blade notices the piece of Dracula's armour in the Nightstalkers' headquarters he's shown an image of what the full armour looks like. It'd be impossible to extrapolate a full suit of armour from such a small piece.

127 Hours (2010)

Deliberate mistake: During some shots seen from the camera when Aron is filming his diary the camera performs some subtle movements to keep him in frame. These movements are from a tripod as they're too subtle and controlled to be from someone operating the camera with one arm and moving around as much as James Franco was.
