Is Hollywood that inconsiderate not to rectify the finer details of a movie or are they so careless that they leave technical mistakes unchecked? Here are ten movies with such blatant and easy to spot errors that will make you sit up and wonder how is it even possible. When millions are spent on the making of a single movie, one expects it to be near perfect and such mistakes though bordering on the laughable are also unforgivable.
Here are ten unbelievable movie mistakes of Hollywood.
1. The Hunger Games
We all loved Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games franchise. In the first part did you even notice such a glaring mistake where the position of Katniss’s hand doesn’t even correlate to that of the arrow? It’s amazing how the director didn’t even notice, or was she too fast in shooting??
2. The Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit
Watch Orlando Bloom’s character closely. Do you notice the color shade of his eyes? This is the big difference between both movies where Legolas has brown eyes in one and blue eyes in the other. Did the Elves have their own contact lenses too? Or did bloom suddenly change his contacts between movies??
3. Lord of the Rings
Watch closely and spot the difference between the two images. The amazing scene where the hobbit fights the giant spider shows a flight of steps in one scene which disappears in the next. Where did the staircase disappear? Was it meant to be some magical mirage for viewers or another huge inconsiderate technical error?
The Hugh Jackman and Halle berry starrer was absolutely entertaining no doubt, but spot the big mistake in these images. In the first, the headrest of the front seat is unopened. In the second it is open as if some invisible hand wrenched it up. Weird isn’t it or is it rather a matter of who really cares???
5. Spiderman Part 1
This is really classic. In the first Spiderman movie Mary Jane Watson trips and slips on spilled juice lying on the floor. It’s right there as large as life glaring in your face in the frame. But!! In the next mage there isn’t even the slightest trace of a spill. Was the janitor that fast or did he forget it was a movie??
6. Jurassic Park, the Lost World
Watch Hoskins’ wristwatch closely as he approaches the cage where the raptors are kept. Can you make out the time? It’s around 2 am. When the staff member who fell into the pit was rescued and the scene cuts to the same shot, his watch shows a different time, now isn’t that weird? We all know scenes are shot in different takes but why to make it so obvious.
7. The Gladiator
Now this classic. The movie Ben Hur was notoriously famous for the alleged car that appears in the chariot scene but none actually found it. In Gladiator, the gas cylinder is very evident in this chariot scene and is not hard to spot at all. Now that’s a huge mistake.
8. The Titanic
Now this is a real blooper and unforgivable too, because this blockbuster carries a whole lot of technical movie mistakes in several scenes. This one is the worst of them all as Kate Winslet’s beauty spot decided to change sides.
9. Twilight New Moon
So now we know Taylor Lautner didn’t really have a tattoo on his arm in the movie and it has to be fake. How else can one explain the location of the tattoo shifting from his upper arm to a lower position in another scene?
10. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
With the amount of money paid for such a movie, the least you can do is to hide your cameramen. Watch this scene and look closely to your left, is that a cameraman or is he also one of the students with a time machine. One of the most unbelievable movie mistakes of Hollywood.
