• a boy behind some curtains cause all sorts of discussion. i believe they claim now it was cardboard. who has a cardboard cutout of a kid. three men and a baby(and a boy in the window)
  • In one of the LOTR movies, there's a car in the background. That's what they get for filming outside, as they can't shut down all roads to film! (I'll find out which LOTR it is.)
  • Aside from the very famous bit in Star Wars when one of the stormtroopers walks out of a room and whacks his head on the door frame? It has to be Pearl Harbor. As I'm sure you know, the events depicted were in 1941. So why does one of the buildings have a sign on it saying Est. 1953?
  • I have a couple from Lord of The Rings - The Two Towers One is where Aragorn, Gimli & Legolas are surrounded by the Rohiriim and Aragorn is talking with Eomer and Eomers sword slides right out of its sheath during the scene, but you have to watch closely (not sure if it's in the theatrical or the extended). The second is where Gandalf is entering to see King Theoden, they keep cutting back and forth between two different takes, one he has his staff up and using it as a walking stick and the other scene he has it in his hand perpendicular to his body. So during the Theatrical scene, it's up, then down, then up, then down, it really bothers me.
  • For a movie as standard as Bambi I find it funny that in one scene by the river there is a bunny or squirrel (I haven't seen it in years)that is there one minute and gone the next and then reapears a few seconds later. I think the animator got lazy for a few frames.
  • Someone took mine about the stormtrooper whacking his head on the doorframe in Star Wars. In Return of the Jedi there's a scene with a whole bunch of TIE fighters going around the Death Star. In the original non-digitized version, you see 4 TIEs fly toward the Death Star, but instead of joining the ones flying around it they simply disappear.
  • In the Move Godzilla (The one from 1999 or so). Godzilla is supposed to be stomping around in New York City, but you see a "Carl JR's" billboard sign. Carl Jr's is "Hardees" on the East coast. This sign had to be in LA.
  • Titanic- The lake that Jack told Rose he went ice fishing on when she was threatening to jump is Lake Wissota, a man-made lake in Wisconsin near Chippewa Falls. The Titanic sank in 1912, Lake Wissota did not exist until 1918.
  • In The Day After Tommorow when the two men are walking in the snow they should be breathing a fine mist because of the cold temp. but there is none.
  • int the original realease of who framed roger rabbit one of the animators showed jessica rabbit for a few frames going "commando" they removed it for the dvd release for obviuos "frame by frame" reasons.
  • In Titanic, when mr. Andrews is stood by the fireplace, you can clearly see a string pulling the glass down as the ship sinks.
  • "2001: A Space Odyssey" (1968) It was once said that to make a more technically accurate movie set in outer space, one would have to film it "on location." While near technically perfect, this movie has one small error. While Dr. Floyd is enroute to the moon, he partakes of a meal in zero gravity. He is shown sucking his meal through a straw. When he releases the straw the level of fluid in it falls back down the straw due to gravity. In real zero-g the liquid would not fall, but remain filling the straw. This error was mention in the book "The Lost Worlds of 2001" and I was unable to perceive it in my copy of "2001" on DVD. It was not until Iwatched the new Blu-Ray transfer of the film that I was able to see this famous mistake. Note: To get the zero-g sequences in "Apollo 13" accurate, Ron Howard filmed them in a modified KC-135 tanker aircraft (nick-named "The Vomit Comet" by NASA). The film crew and actors were subjected to almost 600 individual parabolic arcs in the aircraft to get the required scenes filmed in "micro-gravity". Hope this helps.
