Tinsel town is an exciting parallel universe because everything seems to be larger than life. Fame, fortune, and prestige are the vital things that make the Hollywood world go round. Celebrities live like they are virtually gods and goddesses here on Earth – admired and desired by so many, yet achievable only to very few.
And what about the Hollywood film? Basically, the Hollywood style had dictated upon the world what film language is and what it should be. It seems to be quite a perfect system. But, is it?
This very interesting and fun list will let you in on the 10 top Hollywood mistakes that were captured on camera. How many of these mistakes were you able to spot before?
10. X-Men 2
It takes a very detailed person to notice that a mistake was committed towards the end of the film. As the film comes to its conclusion and the X Men meet the president in his office, a blue binder can be seen on the president’s table. The shot changes and as it pans back to the president, the binder is no longer there and a few pieces of stapled paper are seen on the table instead. The shot again changes and as the camera zooms closer to the president, the blue binder is seen again. Rather inconsistent, eh.
9. Die Another Day
In this hit Bond film, Agent Frost and Jinx have a final fight scene atop a plane. Jinx gets a cut on her stomach and starts bleeding. After several shots, James Bond is seen pouring diamonds on Jinx’ stomach. Interestingly, there seemed to be no mark on her stomach despite what happened to her on the plane. It seemed like the diamond actually had healing powers!
8. Spider Man
When Peter Parker finally discovers his web shooting skills and spider-like abilities, he attempts to practice while inside his room. He attempts to shoot a lamp by the door side and this smashes the wall behind him. After this sequence, Aunt May enters the room to find out what the commotion was all about. As Peter opens the door to talk to Aunt May, the lamp is seen near the door – without any damage. Magic!
7. Star Wars
While this remains to be a very popular film, it is surely not free from mistakes. In the movie, as the Storm troopers take charge of the control room, three of them are seen entering together. The rightmost trooper then enters and accidentally hits his head on the door frame. Amazingly, the scene was not reshot and was shown intact for all moviegoers to see.
6. The Rocky Horror Picture Show
In this film, the character Eddie has three rings – one on his middle finger, one on his ring finger, and one as well on his pinkie. However, as the camera changes angles, one ring is seen missing – the one on his pinkie. This is seen most in the scene where Eddie plays the sax and when he picks up Columbia to play with him. A very, very curious mistake, indeed.
5. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
In one scene, Sam is seen looking for the tiny sliver of cube in his room. As he finds it. It drops to the floor and burns its way to the kitchen. There seemingly was no mistake here except that the kitchen is actually on the other side of the house. Underneath his room was just an empty space where Jazz hid in the film’s first installment.
4. American Pie
When Stiffler takes a girl in his room in this adult comedy, the girl is seen carrying a transparent cup filled with beer. When the camera changes angles and refocuses on her, she is seen holding a blue cup and not a transparent one. As the camera veers away and refocuses on her again, she is seen back holding the transparent one. What gives, eh.
3. Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
When Catherine and John try to get a plane, the plane’s tail end is seen to have the number N303SC. As the pane finally flies and gets shot, the number then changes to become N3973F. When the plane finally lands, the original number is again seen. Weird, isn’t it?
2. P.S. I Love You
In a scene in this romantic film where Gerry gets hit in the face by his suspender, we see the clasp landing beneath the dresses, However, as Gerry writhes in pain and gets on his bed, the shot reveals that the clasp in still attached to Gerry’s suspender. In the next shot, the suspender clasp is seen missing again!
In this Arnold Schwarzenegger film, he is seen driving a yellow porsche that is badly damaged on the left side. As soon as his lady passenger gets off the car, the left side is seen clean and damage-free. It was as if Arnold did magic to repair the car!
