8. Scream 4 – In the final shot of the film, Jill’s head moves slightly when she’s supposed to be dead.
9. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides – Captain Barbossa’s ship has a modern Union Jack flying on the stern. The film is set in the reign of George II (1727 – 1760). The flag shown includes the cross of St Patrick, although Ireland did not become part of the United Kingdom until 1801, and the Union Jack at the time of the film would have comprised only the crosses of St George (England) and St Andrew (Scotland).
10. Thor – When the Destroyer arrives amidst the Shield agents, a coffee cup sitting on the dash of one of the vehicles spills over. The next shot it can be seen lying on its side. The reverse angle shot then shows it upright again.

The one disclaimer about these, of course, is that a lot of the site is user generated so films that people see more of and obsess over are sure to be scrutinized more. Hence a movie like Transformers being on both lists. I’m sure The Artist has a lot of mistakes in it too but the average fanboy isn’t obsessively watching a film like that.
Do you watch movies and pick these kind of things out?
