The Birdcage (1996)

Continuity mistake: When Albert and Armand are in the kitchen and they are discussing Val's interest in getting married, if you look at the glasses on the kitchen island, they change positions between shots. One of the glasses is more towards the right side even though everyone has already got their hands full. (00:23:00 - 00:24:00)

Scarface (1983)

Continuity mistake: When Tony is in the refugee camp and he stabs the communist at the doorway, the camera focuses on the Cuban's face where he is standing upright staring straight ahead. The camera then changes to a rear view and the Cuban is suddenly in a hunched over position making for an awkward transition. (00:11:00)

Revealing mistake: When Booth shoots the second hunter, you can see he that aims the gun at the mans stomach but the exit wound appears to be on the left side of his back, further up from where he aimed. (01:10:50)

Continuity mistake: When we see Frank peering out of Booth's window after the landlord calls the cops, it appears to be dark outdoors with only street lamps for light. The camera then cuts to Booth viewing Frank from across the street, but it appears that it is now daylight outside. (00:08:20 - 00:09:15)

Heat (1995)

Factual error: When Vincent enters the nightclub, you can see that a woman is walking through the metal detector, but the security guard is scanning her with a hand-held wand at the same time. This is totally unnecessary. The hand-held should be used only if the walk-through is triggered. (00:43:50)

Donnie Darko (2001)

Continuity mistake: In the shot where Donnie is at the bus stop, if you look at the guy immediately to the right on Donnie, he is smoking a cigarette. The cigarette changes hands several times, once in a split second. (00:30:30)

Continuity mistake: When Joel is suffocating Clementine when they are little kids, initially, the house has a window that is offset to the right, but later on, when the movie returns and the house is boarded up, the window is centered and the house looks different. (01:13:05 - 01:13:45)
