10 Movie Mistakes That Are Obvious Once You See Them

Movies are made with extreme precision; directors, producers, and editors put their utter effort into each scene to make it perfect with minor details, but sometimes, even after editing, mistakes remain unnoticed until some keen critic pokes their nose and highlights them. Let's look at some of these faults we cannot unsee.

1. Crew Member – Doctor Strange (2016)

One of the appealing cinematic pieces of Marvel Doctor Strange with stars such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, and Benedict Wong, the tale goes around a neurosurgeon who loses control of his hands due to a car accident and learns the truth about the hidden world by ancient one. The movie also made some mistakes while finalizing the scene. The slip went unnoticed until someone pointed out that a crew member was standing in the corner during the shot of London Sanctum. 

2. The Eye Color of Legolas – The Lord of the Rings (2001-2003)

Eye color is one of the fundamental things one notices while meeting someone, but in fantasy action movies, we are much more focused on action than eye color. An audience with sharp eyes was good enough to point out the change in the eye color of Legolas (Orlando Bloom) from purple to brown. The story of Lord of the Rings follows the adventurous voyage of a hobbit who finds one of the rings of the Dark Lord Sauron. With his partners, he goes through all peril to destroy that ring. 

3. Impact Before Hit – Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)

Termination 2: Judgment Day is one of the most popular science fiction movies. The saga is about a 10-year-old boy, John (Edward Furlong), who is to become the leader of the human aversion against machines T-1000, an advanced robot from the future, tries to kill him, but at the same time, another terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is sent to shield john. Special effects are essential in sci-fiction movies, but errors are common. One such mistake was when the Terminator threw the T-1000 to the wall; The impact mark was already present before the blow.

4. The Flying Plane – Gladiator (2000)

When viewers noticed the scene, they were shocked that they were sure ancient Romans weren't that advanced to build a plane that could fly, or it was a publicity stunt. The blunder is a scene when a plane passes over the heads of a fight scene. With the cast of Russell Crowe and Joaquin Phoenix, The anecdote follows the revenge of a man who was chosen as heir but got his family killed. Now, he is determined to take vengeance on his enemies.

5. Plastic Bottle in 1863 – Little Women (2019)

A novel transformed romance drama movie, Little Women, gained viewers' attention due to its beautiful storyline and aesthetics. Still, someone was clever enough to point out that a plastic water bottle in a clip was placed on a table. Although the movie was set in 1863, Little Women, with a cast of Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, and Florence Pugh, is about four sisters and their life who want to pursue different goals in life but have to face problems throughout their journey.

6. Mannequin and Hairs – Spider-Man (2002)

One of the groundbreaking movies, Spider-Man, also had some arguable visual effect mistakes that made viewers question the editors. In the scene where Spiderman saves Mary Jane, but she is not holding Peter and hanging on the mannequin, the wind flow is also in the inaccurate direction. The story revolves around an introverted nerd, Peter (Tobey Maguire), who gets bitten by a radioactive spider and gains power. With those powers, he is determined to defeat the green goblin (Willem Dafoe). 

7. Dialogue Mishap – The Hollow Point (2016)

Dialogue slips are rarely seen, but when they are part of movies, people rewind to double-check that what they hear is correct. The same is true in a scene from The Hollow Point, where the character tries to explain that he has been a detective for 80 years, which seems odd. If he started at 18, now, he must be above 98. The film describes the reprisal journey of a lamented man to take revenge for his family.

8. The Book – Unforgiven (1992)

With the cast of Clint Eastwood, Gene Hackman, and Morgan Freeman, the thriller movie revolves around a man, a father of two, and a former gunfighter who is offered to join again, an offer he doesn't want to accept but could resist. The audience has eyes as sharp as the eagle, and they catch a glimpse of the clip where Gene Hackman reads his script inside the book.

9. Food Swap – Pretty Woman (1990)

Often, food scenes are seen as awkward in movies, whether an empty cup of tea or the actor fake chewing the food. The viewers catch sight of a similar scene from the movie Pretty Women, where Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts) is having breakfast. The scene is not synced as in one; she is holding a croissant. 

10. Two Places One Man – Avengers: Endgame (2019)

Avengers: Endgame is no doubt one of the blockbuster movies of cinematic history. Everyone loved, cried, and enjoyed the movie, but still, the movie has some slips that are not explainable. The scene in question is where Ant-Man is scene fighting and, at the same time, fixing a quantum tunnel. With a brilliant cast of Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Paul Rudd, and others, the movie follows events that take place to bring the world back to normal after the events of Infinity War.
