10 Fun “If You Look Close Enough” Movie Mistake Screenshots

Movie Mistakes

There’s a ton of hard work that goes into the editing of a movie.  But even the editors can get a little careless at times.  If you’re working with thousands of frames, sometimes you overlook a thing or two.   The mistakes can be minor, and at other times the mistakes can be quite obvious.

I mean take the picture above as an example.  I think that’s hilarious.  Just last night I was watching American Gangster and in the scene where Russel Crowe first meets with his new crew you can clearly see RZA’s Wutang Clan Tattoo.   Now I’d have to think that wasn’t intended.

In any event, it’s always funny when these types of things crop up in movies.  I’ve found ten that I think are worth a look.

Thanks to Movie Mistakes for these pictures

Commando

Movie Mistakes

After a chase scene in which a yellow Porsche gets totally wrecked, it’s miraculously fine after they drive off.

Spider Man

Movie Mistakes

In the scene where Mary Jane is being mugged by four men, Spider-Man throws two of the men into two windows behind Mary Jane. The shot switches to Spider-Man beating up the other two guys. When it cuts back to Mary Jane the two windows are intact

The Matrix

Movie Mistakes

In the scene where Agent Smith is interrogating Neo, after Smith has sealed Neo’s mouth shut and he is backed into the corner, when the camera cuts back to Smith you can clearly see a reflection in his glasses of Neo still sitting down in the chair

Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Movie Mistakes

Merry and Pippin were bound when taken by the Uruk-hai, and the bonds weren’t cut until after they managed to escape during the fight. Yet, when the horse almost crashed down on Pippin, he had his arms spread out up near his face, not bound, even though they weren’t cut until later. In the next shot, his hands are bound again.

Gladiator

Movie Mistakes

In the “Battle of Carthage” in the Colosseum, one of the chariots is turned over. Once the dust settles you can see a gas cylinder in the back of the chariot.

Ocean’s Eleven

Movie Mistakes

Linus and Rusty are standing in the Botanical Garden at the Bellagio going over Linus’ observations. Rusty has a cocktail glass of shrimp in hand. When they change angles he has a plate in his hand, then change back, it’s a glass.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Movie Mistakes

The T-1000 punches his body through the window of a helicopter to get inside. An instant later, the hole in the windshield is gone.

Harry Potter and the Sourcerer’s Stone

Movie Mistakes

At the start of term feast, after Harry is sorted into Gryffindor, he sits down on the right side of the table next to Ron. When the feast appears, Harry is on the other side of the table, next to Hermione.

Titanic

Movie Mistakes

When Jack and Rose are going down with the ship, there is a man holding onto the flagpole. The man’s life jacket disappears and reappears

Back to the Future

Movie Mistakes

In the scene where Marty is being chased by the Libyans, a few times they cut away to show the instrumentation in the car. The first time the odometer reads 33064.2 and the trip counter says 88.8; the second time it’s goes back a little to 33061.8 and 86.4. A few seconds later we see it as he turns the corner, and it goes down again from 33,061.8 to 32,994.4, the trip counter has gone from 86.4 to 19. In fact it’s a completely different set of instrumentation – the bottom of the needle’s angled in some shots and flat in others
