This may have been a blockbuster year for big-screen spectaculars, but it's also set a record that filmmakers might not be too keen to shout about - movies released in 2008 notched up over 1,000 factual and continuity blunders, more than movies from any other year have managed in the year they were released! 10 of the best...
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull: At the beginning when Indy is talking to Spalko, his hands keep alternating from being in his pockets to just resting at his sides between shots.
Iron Man: When Iron Man and Iron Monger are fighting, Iron Man catches the SUV, and you can see the family inside the car. Although the car is completely vertical, the hair of the people in the car seem to defy gravity.
Sex and the City: The Movie: In the scene where Big and Carrie meet in their cars after Big fled the wedding you can see down the street in the distance a huge amount of SATC fans have gathered to watch the filming.
High School Musical 3: Senior Year: At Riley's Garage, when Troy and Chad rummage through the junk looking for the radiator cap, Troy's boxers are light grey, but next shot when he lifts the truck's hood his boxers are black.
Quantum of Solace: At the end of "Casino Royale," Bond is wearing a three-piece suit. Although "Quantum of Solace" begins just minutes later, Bond is wearing a completely different, two-piece, suit.
Mamma Mia!: In the shot in the bathroom, Tanya has a small diamond necklace but in the next shot in the bedroom the diamond appears larger.
The Dark Knight: During Batman's interrogation of Joker, when he picks him up and slams him against the wall, for a very brief moment you can see the camera and the cameraman in the reflection of the mirror on the right.
The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian: When the Pevensies are outside their treasure chamber in Cair Paravel, Peter tears off a piece of his shirt to make a makeshift torch. A few shots later, once they're in the chamber, the missing piece has gotten bigger.
Cloverfield: When he's walking in the subway, Rob's shirt has a dark triangle of sweat (and dirt) on the back. In one clip the triangle is barely visible and the shirt looks a lot cleaner than before. In the next clip, the triangle is very clear again.
Definitely, Maybe: In the scene where the camera shows Times Square, visible on the right of the screen in the front of the shot is a poster for the Broadway show "The Lion King". The Lion King just celebrated 10 years on Broadway and was not playing in 1994.
