In the book, Waxflatter hallucinated gremlins sabotaging the ornithopter; this is an obvious in-joke to Gremlins (1984) made the year before, and Steven Spielberg produced all the films in the Gremlins franchise, and Chris Columbus scripted the first film as well. See more »
(at around 1h 30 mins) When Watson swings the grapple to hook the axle, there is a crossbeam at the rear of the buggy that the rope swings on before hooking on the axle. When the hook catches the axle and Rathe starts to drive away, the crossbeam is missing and the rope is stretched straight behind the carriage instead of upwards, the knot holding the hook has changed shape, and the axle is smooth. When the rope catches and the carriage is ripped apart, the knot has returned to its original shape, the crossbeam is still missing, and a fitting resembling an inchworm has appeared in the middle of the axle.

Throughout the end credits, the action follows a horsedrawn sleigh en route to an unknown destination. In last shot, the audience becomes privy to the surprise identity of the passenger, a key figure in Sherlockiana. See more »
This is an awesome movie. The only drawback was the absurd dealing with the "flying machine." Other than that, sit back and enjoy as Watson and Holmes embark on their alleged first adventure as Holmes tries to find the link between a rash of recent murders, hallucinations people have been having, and a cult. Not a bad way to spend a few hours of your time!
