Well Ive been thinking that we should have a major hollywood mistake thread where you can post pics of mistakes of any major movie production. So I thought Id post a couple of mistakes Ive found on LOTR since its my favorite.



Legies sword in the whole entire movie have been curved in now there curved out for just that one shot.



Borimere is supposed to be stabbing that uruk there. clap

Well there you have it. So go find some mistakes and post some pics so we can all have a good laugh.

I was highly entertained by it, simply because it was unintentionally (or otherwise) Hilarious.

Love the user comment for that horrible, horrible movie:
User Comments: Re-defines the word "turkey." Elevates PLAN NINE FROM OUTER SPACE to Oscar material! (more)
Can't say it better than that!

Well, I found a movie mistake.

"Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace"
That entire movie was a distinctively unattractive smudge on the entire fabric of moviemaking altogether. That movie... is definitely the worst movie that I have ever seen hit the silver screen.

"Star Trek: Nemesis"

Yet another movie mistake that happens to last the entire movie, possibly due to the fact that it IS the movie.

....

Yeh. Anyways, I don't notice too many film mistakes, except one where, in "Star Wars Episode IV," when those stormtroopers get through the locked door to 3PO and R2, the one on the very far right hits his head on the door. Tall stormtrooper... biggrin

And, this isn't truly a movie mistake, but in "The Last Samurai," the room in which Tom Cruise is staying is #42. That's a special number. biggrin

No!

42 is the ANSWER that Deep Thought gives to the ULTIMATE QUESTION about life, the universe and everything. It is NOT the 'meaning of' anything other than the answer to the question (which happens to be, for anyone interested, is 'What is Six by Nine?').

Rawr. I love being pedantic wink

And, by the way Rawree - you're not Chandler. I just thought I'd clear that one up razz

The plot of "Blade"

Deacon Frost: We'll kill all the humans!!!! and once they're dead we'll.... we'll......

Vampire dude: Starve?

But there is actually a deleted scene covering that plot hole, but it had to be cut thus making the film a huge plot hole.

I see loads of mistakes, but they're very rarely anything clever or funny enough to remember. Watch "Metro" the crazy tram chase, a woman at the back is holding a very, very fake dog.

Thanks Arktic... I don't know if I want to read the next book now that I know the ultimate question.


I think this movie mistake surpasses all:

Although of course, it is debatable.

I tend not to worry about movie mistakes. If I see them on the first viewing, then it's clear that the film isn't that good, because I should be watching the film, not searching for errors.If I see them later (much later in the case of the famous stormtrooper headbutt), then it's a plus point. For a start, it's like unearthing a secret, and and secondly, it makes these filmmakers more human, more like us mortals who watch the movies and strive to emulate them. And that makes the impossible art of filmmaking possible.

Also, there were a LOT of mistakes in my first film, and it was 3 minutes long. The last one I did (also about 3 minutes) only had one (that I know of), and I was over the moon. I have the utmost respect for those who can make a 2 hour film with no more than a couple smile

There's a shot in Gattaca when Ethan Hawke's character is pulling clothes out of his closet, and the camera pulls back a bit. In the bottom left-hand corner of the screen are someone's fingers who are holding the closet door open. I noticed it only recently, but thought it was very funny.

One of the most bizarre mistakes I've seen (bizarre mainly due to nobody spotting it, which is quite inexplicable) as the vanishing barrels in Two Towers. When Sam and Frodo are captured by Faramir and they're in the room with the barrels, discussing how to escape. Cut to a different shot, and all the barrels have vanished, never to return.

Tarn... The world of middle earth is full of magic and mystery. If the disappearing barrels confuse you, why doesn't this "one ring" confuse you? Or these "ringwraiths", or these "Elves", or this "Gandalf's" mysterious ability to fight this "Balrog" and then survive?

Vanishing barrels are very popular in Middle Earth these days.

In a scene not included in the final cut, Frodo handed the ring to the barrels temporarily because they wanted to try it on. Thus, they disappear. Hope that clears things up for you.

I find it funny when Aragorn runs towards Boromir (lotr fotr) when Bromoir was nearly killed. Wel, when Aragorn ran, he jumps over some orcs, and one of the orcs actually moved his head upp to see what's going on razz

Mabye it doesn't seem like a too big of a mistake, but in a huge film like that dead people should be dead.

There's a great bit in The Running Man that you've just reminded me about, Aculag. It's in the bit where they are fighting Sub Zero, and Arnie's geeky mate slides accross the ice, towards the camera. As he comes close, a set of hands reaches out to stop him - they're quite clear when you know they're there.

A curse shared by us both. sad

I'm not sure if anyone has spotted these classics yet (forgive me if I'm repeating):

Alien : Near the start when the chap is being lowered into the Egg Chamber there is a prop box on the ground near some of the eggs.

Star Wars IV : When r2d2 and c3po are fiddling with the computer to save luke from the garbage crusher, storm troopers run into the room. The 3rd storm trooper bangs his head on the door. smile In the special edition version they've added in a tinny "bang" to it. smile

you're forgiven for repeating the stormtrooper one (for the second time wink)
although (as you all probably know) George decided to "unbloop" it by making Jango do the same in AOTC, so you'll think it's a genetic flaw...

This mistake is not really a major mistake, but in "The Mummy" at the scene where O'Connell is talking to Evey on the steam boat. O'Connell takes out his Colt 1911 and pulls the slide back, then when Evey leaves he puts the magazine in the gun. A few moments later, O'Connell pulls Benny out from behind some crates and pulls his 1911 on him. During their conversation, O'Connell says, "I think I'll kill you", but dosn't pull the trigger. If he had pulled the trigger, O'Connell would have looked like a fool because there would be no round in the chamber. He put the magazine in the gun after he pulled the slide back. You need to put the magazine in first, then pull the slide back to put a bullet in the chamber.

Also ion the Mummy, when the old guy gets the key to the book of the dead, he puts it in and turns it counter-clockwise to open, then closs it, locking it closed by turning it clockwise and withdrawing the key. About 2 minutes later in the movie, when Brenden Fraser has the book, he turns the key clockwise to open the book and clockwise to close it. Not a huge mistake, but a mistake nonetheless.

Oh......and on the movie Taxi- the new one- I'm pretty sure they spelled "Helicopter Operator" wrong in the credits.......or maybe its just me.

In Rush Hour 2, when Li and Carter are chasing Triads up a bamboo ladder, one of the Triads falls. when he lands there is the strange over exposure in the corner of the shot that looks like a sci-fi Jellyfish. Not a mistake, but nonetheless really weird.

Aiming his Mac 10 at the wounded cop, Sang tells Carter that he'll kill him (the cop), then it cuts to a shot of the cop on the floor again, but this time there is no gun in his shoulder holster!

One of my favorite movie mistakes was one I noticed while watching FOTR in theaters. When gansalf has Sam on the chair "threatening him", every shot when you return to Sam will have different books in defferent places on the floor!

I was just watching Star Wars Episode I for about the 10,000th time and noticed a major mistake! In the beginning when Qui-Gon is cutting through the blast door, a single battle droid is running torwards them and firing his blaster. Right as Obi-Wan blocks his laser and it hits the battle droid, the battle droid's reflection on the floor is about 1 whole second behind the battle droids movment!!!



Looks like it says "ILM" on the wall for Industrial Light and Magic!!!

One of the mistakes that confuses me most is in LOTR TTT. When Eomer and his gang ride up to Aragorn, Legolas, and the little stumpy one, he does his whole spiel and hops back on his horse. As he does you can clearly see his sword slip out of his sheath and fall to the ground.

How do you not catch that? I mean he even looks down (probably at the sword) as he finishes his line.

In XXX: State of The Union. When the CIA guy gets up after the boat exploding, he shoots his pistol. Well if you look close, there is no recoil, no slide movement, and he doesnt even have his finger on the trigger.

Another one in TTT is when Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli are first walking into Theoden's throne-room. In the shots from behind Gandalf is holding his staff straight up and down and in the shots from the front he is holding it parallel with the ground as if to conceal it.

I was watching Transformers the other day an noticed that during the standoff with the special forces and scorpinox in Qatar, right after they call in the 105-shells from the C-130 there's a dolly shot facing the backs of the special forces looking at a dust cloud where scorpinox just got bombed. During this shot you can clearly see the camera's shadow sweeping over a couple guys' backs. >_<

I've seen the Star Wars movies a lot of times and found some mistakes. I found these mistakes myself, I didn't read about them from anywhere.

In SW Episode I in the when Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan run away from the battle droids after Qui-Gon attempts to get through the blast doors by sticking his lightsaber through it, when they run away, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan start getting partially transparent and keep fading back and forth from being transparent, I don't know how they could've done this by mistake but it's there and it isn't explained in the story.

In SW Episode III in the battle between Obi-Wan and Anakin when Obi-Wan jumps off of a rope ad onto a thing floating in the lava his lightsaber is deactivated but makes sound anyway.
Also in Episode III, after Obi-Wan lightsaber duels General Grievous he turns his lightsaber off but it doesn't make any deactivation sound.

In SW Episode V when Luke is about to duel Darth Vader in the place in the City of Clouds, in the shot where Darth Vader turns on his lightsaber the prop blade is visible before he turns it on.
Also in Episode V, When Luke falls into the machine that puts him into carbon freeze, in the last frame of the shot where Darth Vader says "perhaps you are not as strong as the Emperor thought", the effect on Darth Vaders lightsaber disappears and hi lightsaber prop is visible.

EDIT: By the way JoelM, did you know you brough back a topic from 2005?

I always spot odd things in movies and TV shows. On one episode of "Joey", the Friends spin-off, Joey and his sister are sitting outside by the hot tub. The bottom of her feet are facing the camera. In one shot they are clean, the next dirty as if she's been walking around bare foot for a while, next shot clean again.

Other mistakes I've spotted and are probably well noted are in Star Wars...

ANH - When C3PO and R2 are in the control room of the Death Star and the stormtrooper force their way in the door doesn't go all the way up and one trooper on the far right doesn't duck and almost knocks himself down when he hits his head.

ESB - When Luke and Vader are fighting and Vader cuts his hand off it's obvious he just has his hand tucked away inside a sleeve that's now longer, but burned by the saber, and his wrist bends to hold on when he's on the ledge... Horrible mistake.

Here's something me and my friend noticed while watching Freddy Vs Jason a few weeks ago:

When the kid wakes up and his father is sitting beside him with his neck chopped on the porch of his house, the kid hears a noise in the bushes. As he walks towards them, we get a shot of the bushes moving - to the right of the bushes, the shadow of someone shaking them is visible.

And in the movie Scream I noticed a cool little homage to the Nightmare on Elm Street Movies:

Before the principal is about to get killed, when he's looking outside his office, the cleaner in the hallway is wearing the Freddy Kruger sweater and hat.

There was a joke about that, in Episode II: AotC as Jango Fett is boarding his ship after fighting Obi-Wan on the landing platform, he bumps his head on the top part of the ship's opening as he ran up the ramp and since the clones were made from him they bump their heads into stuff too as seen in ANH, I think there were two times in ANH where Stormtroopers bumped their head on something. biggrin

The Departure when Jack has Leo's cast off his arm and is on the pool table, Jack takes a boot and is supposed to be hitting Leo's hurt arm with it, but you can clearly see he's hitting the table nowhere near his arm.

That scene takes place over about 25 days or so. It's in the commentary.

You're talking about the Disney animated one right?
