    Movies with overlooked flaws........Oversights!

    Have you ever spotted something in a movie that somehow got overlooked by everybody in the editing process. Some movies are multi award winning films yet for some unbelievable reason something got overlooked. I got thinking of this while watching a highly acclaimed multi award winning film right now. Although I've seen this movie multiple times I've never noticed this flaw and I'm not sure if it's ever been noticed by anyone prior.

    The movie I'm referring to is Ghost.
    The scene is in the pottery wheel clay pot scene.
    Molly is working the wet clay on the pottery wheel. Sam her boyfriend comes up behind her and entwines his hands with hers. They both work the wet sloppy clay. An erotic scene that all woman
    find so romantic right. Before long they're going at
    it. And yet in this same scene all of a sudden both
    of their hands are completely clean. Quite an
    oversight and surprising for such a highly rated
    movie.

    Anybody else have any oversights they have spotted in a movie or television show.

    Someone on MTBR introduced me to CinemaSins. I'm paying it forward. There are hours of goodness in its youtube channel.

    It's hard for me to watch movies sometimes.. I'm always looking in the backgrounds for something out of place or like you say, oversights.
    Cant think of any offhand right now though,

    Check out IMDb - Movies, TV and Celebrities for any movie, and it will list known flubs.

    For example, I randomly searched "The Godfather", and here are the results.

    Alright so I looked it up via your link and it's part of the screw ups'.
    Ghost (1990) - Goofs - IMDb

    Why am I watching Ghost?
    Cracks me up how some of you have to put on a macho persona. It was on and I watched 10 minutes of it big focking deal.

    Now excuse me I've gotta go take a bubble bath.

    Years ago I was watching an old western it may have been an old Eastwood or John Wayne movie. And I spotted a jet trail from a jet airliner in the sky. Pretty funny!
    Kinda ruined the movie for me though.

    My favorite was in brave heart. The very first huge battle scene when the armies are charging towards each other you can see the rubber axes and swords wobbling with every stride.

    I also love it when you notice a "corpse" breathing.

    The original Halloween has two flubs in one scene. It's when Jamie Lee Curtis is walking down the street with her buddy and they pass a hedgerow. In the background there's a crew member who pops up on a porch. And then after that a puff of cig smoke from just off camera passes by.

    Uhm... Airplane??? Had to have been the Movie DJ thought about to create this thread... lol.

    There's the guy running A/V Cables in the airport while 'Striker' and Elaine are meeting in the airport.
    Striker hiding in a couched position while his body-double does a flyaway in the Disco scene.

    The 'Prop' sound each time the Jet Airplane is in a full screen profile shot... gotta be the greatest one of the entire film.

    I bet though in that movie all those flaws were on purpose.

    Could be - part of the expansive humor. But regardless, they are there!

    Oh yeah I forgot about that one. I being a car guy I caught those flubs on the first showing. It helped that I used to have a 71' CUDA and you tend to obsess over movies like that.

    I watched a movie about some people eating each other in the old west times, and when they did they got stronger, like a lot stronger, like going from a triple to using a SS up a 20% grade type strength. Think the movie was called "Ravenous" In one scene it was obvious that what was supposed to be snow on the ground was actually wadded up white blankets. Ruined the whole movie for me.

    When I worked at the Body shot in Highschool... My boss told me about a 71 Cuda a guy was selling in his neighborhood.. We went and checked it out, It didn't run. I passed on it even with the boss telling me He'd help get it running..
    I bought that stupid Capri instead...
    How's that for an oversight ???

    I'd a prolly wrecked it like the Capri anyway....

    Yeah that's a hell of an oversight, but if you act like it never happened it won't hurt so bad.

    I notice plot holes, factual mistakes (especially medical errors), continuity errors, little details (like "dead people breathing", Roman soldiers wearing wrist watches etc). Noticing these things doesn't necessarily ruin the movie for me, in fact I'm kind of pleased with myself for observing

    Next movie I watch I'll post my findings
