Everyone loves movies and TV shows. And whether you prefer drama, rom-com or horror, we can all agree that such works of entertainment represent a huge part in most of our lives.
While in a perfect world, your favourite movie or sitcom would be flawless and have no mistakes at all, that is not the case in the real world. Most movies and TV series have some mistakes that make us wonder if the directors hadn’t noticed them or if they were just too lazy and chose to ignore those mistakes.
And since we know how much you guys love your on-screen entertainment, we decided to ruin them by giving you the mistakes in some of your favourite movies and TV shows.
Surprised? Yeah didn’t think so either. Although ‘friends’ is one of the most successful TV shows of all time, it has a reputation for the numerous mistakes that occurred in it. I mean we can overlook the sudden change of clothes or the sudden change in decorations, but how are we supposed to ignore the fact the Estelle, Joey’s agent, was the nurse who delivered Ben in season one? Did she have a career shift? Was she moonlighting due to shortage in money? Does Estelle have a twin sister that we never knew about?
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales:
The latest movie in the series which was released in 2017 continues the adventures of Jack Sparrow (I think there should be a “captain” somewhere there) and reveals a lot about his past. But it also features a new star, Henry Turner son of William Turner. Not to spoil the movie, but naturally the guy gets the girl in the end. And as William goes to kiss Carina and when there’s literally less than 20 cm between them, the next shot shows Carina slapping him and it is shown that the distance between the two of them has increased markedly. Also the posture of Henry changes and becomes more like a man waiting to be slapped than a man going for a kiss.
Game of Thrones:
Now I know a lot of people are going to hate me for this, but unfortunately the most popular TV series in the world in not perfect. In season one, as Ser Barriston takes off his armour and throws it on the ground, the armour is shown to be on a piece of cloth right beneath him. In the next shot however, the armour appears to have taken some distance away. Who knows, maybe it got bored so it decided to take a walk.
The Usual Suspects:
Now this one is a classical, and what could be better than classical movies mistakes? Despite the obviousness of this mistake, a lot of people find it hard to spot and are never able to get it on their own. In the plane scene before the police car robbery, the first shot shows a plane with 4 engines in the air. The next shot however, shows a plane landing with only 2 engines. Where could the other two engines have gone? Things like that are what make us doubt if the plane even had a falange.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Since I’m a huge Potterhead, this one is tough for me on a personal level, especially since one scene has two major mistakes. Firstly, when harry is knocked up, Draco is shown with both his hands next to him. As harry casts the spell, the next shot shows Draco standing in battle position with one hand above his head. The next shot however shows Draco with his hands next to him once more.
The second mistake, which I think is the worst actually, is that as Snape helps Draco stand, a cameraman is shown in the dark! I suspect Lockhart wanted to record himself teaching for his next book though.
Wait for us in part II to find out more of the mistakes you missed.
