Movies are one of the favorite past times nowadays. Who doesn’t love a good blockbuster, right? Not to mention the special effects are just mind blowing. But no matter how perfect any movie would seem virtually any of it, even a great one, can fall short and make errors and factual mistakes. In most cases, these mistakes go unnoticed by the public. But some are so painfully obvious and downright ridiculous it’s just a miracle these errors survived the editing process. Are you a nerd? Then put it to the test by checking these movie errors out.
12. Star Wars
You love or hate this movie. The Star Wars franchise is one of the most successful movies of all time given that each installment was filmed in different periods. Starting from the 70s up to the new millennium. The movie is elaborate and very grand. From the set, costumes, down the props everything looked perfect. Or does it? In this photo, a Startrooper accidentally bumped his head while exiting. Pretty funny as these creatures looked like they have no sense of humor.
Back to the future was one of the most commercially successful movies back in the 80s. It’s about a small-town teen named Marty McFly who traveled back into 1955 when the experiment of his wacky scientist friend went amiss. There was a scene when he was rocking a guitar solo which was pretty dope. But the guitar Marty was playing didn’t come out until 1958. But who cares, his guitar solo was off the hook. That is if it was really him playing the guitar.
This classic musical drama film is one of the must-watch classic films of all time. It is based on the real-life story of the Von Trapp family singers. In the ending of the movie, the Von Trapp family crosses the alps outside of Salzburg to escape Austria and got to Switzerland but geographically speaking they could only get to Germany.
In the movie, Jodie Foster’s character sets propane on fire and then drops to the floor so she won’t get caught on fire as the fire rises to the ceiling. If you’re an average joe, you wouldn’t see the mistake here. But if you’re a science geek then you would know that in reality, propane is heavier than air, so instead of rising it would sink to the floor and burn the people in the room. But who cares about that stuff, all we want is the special effects and explosions.
In the Pirates of the Carribean movie, there was a scene where Captain Barbossa was holding a granny smith apple and was offering it to Keira Knightly. But truth is, granny smith apples didn’t exist until 1868. The apple originated in Australia and was named after Maria Ann Smith, who propagated the cultivar from a chance seedling. Maybe the red one wasn’t as appealing to Captain Barbossa?
