Revealing mistake: In the scene of Tod's death when we see the water leak creeping up toward him, if you look closely you can see the small holes in the tile grout where the water is being pumped up from below.

The Shining (1980)

Continuity mistake: When Jack is chopping at the bathroom door with the axe, he completely breaks through the right side panel. After the shot of Halloran arriving in the snow cat, we see Jack at the door again and there are a couple of large wood slivers lodged in the right panel.

Continuity mistake: In the Jeopardy scene, there is a long shot of the set where you can hear Alex Trebek mention it's the start of double jeopardy. However, if you look at the board, one category is already gone.

Backdraft (1991)

Continuity mistake: Early in the movie when Brian visits Stephen on his boat, Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love" is playing. Brian comments on Stephen's 8-Track player and tapes, but in one shot an Iron Butterfly tape is in the player, not Cream. (00:16:55)

Continuity mistake: In the "Another Brick in the Wall Part III" section of the show, look at the missing section of the wall on the right hand side. The bottom bricks of that section change from being filled in to being empty depending on the shot. (01:02:40 - 01:04:00)

Visible crew/equipment: When Del is trying to negotiate for a room at the El Rancho motel, part of the boom mic pole enters in the upper right corner of the frame (matted widescreen version of the film, not just the open matte 4:3 version). (01:09:05)

Jurassic Park (1993)

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Grant and Lex are hanging from the fence cables on the wall in the Tyrannosaur paddock they start swinging back and forth to avoid the truck that is about to fall on them. Look closely in some of the closeup shots, you can see that the cable that Grant is holding on is actually a safety rig. The harness straps are visible.

Revealing mistake: On the second day aboard the Orca, Quint fires a barrel into the shark and they start to pursue it. There are some overhead shots of Quint on the pulpit and during some of these shots, you can see some sort of tow cable. It's visible on the bottom of the screen between some of the supports of the pulpit.

Armageddon (1998)

Other mistake: In the scene where the asteroids are hitting New York, there is an exterior shot of one of them hitting the South end of Grand Central Terminal. Another shot goes by and the film cuts to the main area inside the station, which is close to where the first asteroid hit. There is not one hint of damage, or any discernible reaction from the people inside from the first impact. (00:08:20)

Continuity mistake: After Rod's funeral where Nancy's mother is about to get into her car, there's a shot of her saying "I'm going to get her some help". There's a gravestone behind her that reads "Coulter". When we see her entering the car, with her relative position unchanged, the gravestone reads "McRenolds" (00:47:05)
