    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.

    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.

    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

    Young Frankenstein - c1974 has a handful.

    When Frankenstein first opens the door to the monster-making room, the rusted handle breaks into two pieces, but when he throws them down, only one piece can be heard hitting the floor.

    As the townspeople gather to storm the castle, the clock in the town square shows 10:30. When the Inspector steps out of the building to address them, the clock over his shoulder shows 10:00 PM.

    In the dart throwing scene the first dart lands in a "7" space and the rest near the bullseye. After a cut-away, the dart in the "7" spot is missing.

    During Dr. Frankenstein's lecture, the drawing of the brainstem changes by the end of the scene. (Hollywood Doctors...)

    That is a hilarious Mel Brooks movie and I would bet those were all purposely put in there. That's the type of stuff he does in all his movies just to add to the humor.

    All the natural disaster movies usually get my eyes rolling. I have a degree in Geography with a focus on environmental science. A recent movie I can remember is Sharknado where a hurricane hits California, which is impossible due to the cold waters. A hurricane needs 80+ degree surface water to form.

    Or The Day After Tomorrow. They got all the mechanics right, but they sped up what should take 5,000 years or more into 3 days. Not to mention, even if all the ice on the planet melted, it wouldn't raise sea levels to the result shown in the movie.

    That isn't to say I don't watch and enjoy these movies. I just have to laugh at the environmental crap they make up.

    CSI, CSI Miami, CSI New York...... I know they are TV, but just about everything they do and say is inaccurate. But mostly the way they examine everything under dark mood blue lighting just pisses me right off.

    Also, the movie Entrapment: Sean Connery and that annoying woman who's name currently escapes me break into some fancy castle or something by timing their explosive charges to the striking of an antique french mantle clock. Nothing about that scene was remotely plausible.

    Ya, the wrong ocean currents is the biggest factual fallacy in Sharknado? LOL.

    The king of spin

    Well, since this is a cycling forum, a thematic award has to go to Breaking Away for the "drafting the truck" scene. In that scene Dave, our hero, is doing up to 55 mph behind this truck and when the camera cuts away to his cranks, which it does several times, he is in the small ring. Talk about monster spin!

    We don't have too many big hills here in Indiana, so being hard core maybe he was running a 53/72 front chain ring set.

    If you don't shift up to the 72-tooth ring when drafting a truck at 55mph, exactly when is this ring used?

    Just about every science fiction movie has laughable flaws.

    So does every televised obama press conference.

    The TV series "Murder She Wrote" had in almost every episode a beautiful ocean sunset. Not bad for the Maine coast where the story was set. Of course, it was filmed in California where ocean sunsets do occur, not sunrises...


    OTOH My father and I were watching a very bad "B" war movie where some of the battle scenes were actual combat footage. He started laughing when he said it was HIS SHIP in the pieced together battle scenes (he served on a destroyer in WWII), then he claimed he was in one of the shots. I missed it so I had to take his word for it.

    I wish I knew what movie it was.
    It was filmed in Toronto about 1987 or 1988. A couple was walking down Yonge St. at night and the same cab went past them 3 times as they walked along. I was driving the cab. They paid me $50 to keep driving around the block until they told me to stop. It was about 4:00am and there weren't many cars out. I never asked what the movie was called and I've never seen it.
    dave54's story reminded me.

They paid me $50 to keep driving around the block until they told me to stop. It was about 4:00am and there weren't many cars out. I never asked what the movie was called and I've never seen it.
    dave54's story reminded me.

    I was waiting for a hooker to get off work so I had some time to kill.
