Film-makers often spend the most amount of time in post-production, refining the film since the audience nowadays is the critic. People either have too much time or just knack for picking apart movies – pointing out errors that don't quite sit right and taking great pleasure from spotting continuity errors in the smallest details. But sometimes, these are errors are so glaring and ridiculous that it’s impossible to turn a blind eye. Unbelievably (somewhat), producers hire additional crew to weed out these blunders from the final print but they are humans after all. We bring you seven such movie mistakes where someone failed to do their job.
Braveheart is, undoubtedly, among the best but even the best too can fall victim to sloppy editing. A white car appears out of nowhere (like Randy Orton’s RKO). It either appears at Murron’s funeral driving in the background, or it's seen parked in the background of various battle scenes.
Jurassic Park (1993)
The makers of Jurassic Park swept the audience with their breath-taking practical and SFX effects at the time but when it came to basic stuff live relaying a live feed? Not so much. In a scene, Dennis Nedry plots his escape from the island, with his stashed dino-embryos in tow, he is seen conversing with someone down on the docks, while simultaneously watching the live video feed of the docks. Except, the media player bar is a big giveaway that it was indeed a video.
Pulp Fiction (1994)
Quentin Tarantino is a notorious filmmaker when it comes to perfection. Maybe a little bit too perfect it seems as he couldn't stop this infamous blunder that showed off the bullet holes before any gun was fired. They probably hoped that no-one would notice the whacking great holes in the wall behind Jules and Vincent.
Now we aren't entirely sure why would a horse-drawn chariot require a gas tank but this is one glaring blunder in a movie which was already riddled with errors. In the Battle of Carthage, one of the carriages is upended and crashes into the wall but before it does, you can clearly see the gas tank on the back.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
A man sporting a white fedora hat and black shades can clearly be seen in the background in a particular scene in the movie. Looks like someone decided to make a cameo.
Django Unchained (2013)
We have absolutely no idea how this went unnoticed. In the movie, Django is seen donning a pair of sunglasses for the most part of the movie. Well, the catch is that the movie is based in 1858 and Unfortunately, sunglasses weren’t introduced in the United States until 1929. Ouch!
Star Wars IV – A New Hope (1978)
You knew this one would make it to the list. If you don't know what this major goof up is then you should watch this clip:
