Another car chase related one: When they dub in the sound of squealing tires, but the cars are on a dirt road. I can't think of any specific examples, but I know I've seen it in a few 1960s-70s era movies.

I used to be this way with the unrealistic computer interfaces you always see in movies, but I have come to accept that the purpose of computer screens in movies is to show the audience what's going on, not to be realistic.
