ok--found a really glaring and lame, multiple (but TV series episode) mistake:
been trying to catch all the episodes of ENTOURAGE--because i never followed it when it was current, (much)--and i was just watching one of the first episodes--it's called "TALK SHOW"--vince is booked to do the jimmy kimmel show--and his three buddies are going to go with him and watch the show in the green room
and turtle and drama are getting all dressed up because they want to look "good for the ladies" because they've heard that that green room is "stocked with babes like a trout pond"
so, as they are about to go into the green room, you see them from the front asking themselves: "ok, are we ready?"--so yeah--they're ready to meet the babes--so they walk into the green room--and NOW you see them from behind as they are entering...and right in the center of the screen is a girl who has obviously been cast for this shot for one reason--
she has a great ass--and, of course--the camera kinda makes it obvious that they are looking at her--checking her out--and she has a very distinctive pair of plaid pants on--and damn they look familiar...
and then you realize you JUST saw that same girl standing BEHIND them, as they were getting ready to go in
then they flash to another shot of them from the front--so you can see their faces as they appreciate the scenery--and there's the same girl behind them again
same pants--same top-same hair--same necklace--same bracelet--same face
oh, it's definately the same girl

so, they obviously shot the foreward looking shots all at once-at the same time
and then shot the backward looking shots
and both times they told some "extra" girls to be in the shots: milling about like foxy little trout in the green room pond-(AND in the hall just outside the green room)-and never even checked to see if it was going to look like one of them might be in both sets of shots
if she hadda been a plain jane with a flat ass and a boring, solid color, pair of pants no-one woulda noticed
but they blew it, in that respect
i'm sure millions of people caught it
it's WAY noticeable
GLARING even
barhar

pedestrian sloppiness
some assistant director shoulda been fired
or the "scene continuity person" or whatever it woulda been
i mean--the whole point of that one shot was to make you notice this one particular girl
and then they have her in the preceeding and following shots-apparently existing in two points in space at the same time-not even thinking one might notice her THIS time
Confused Laughing Rolling Eyes

the same thing happened in the movie GOODFELLAS:
in one scene, three girls are entering a bedroom, single file--so you see them going IN the door, from behind...from the viewpoint of the room they are LEAVING
and then, an instant later--the camera switches, so that now you are seeing them from the front--from the viewpoint of the bedroom they are ENTERING
and they aren't in the same order they were, supposedly, a fraction of a second ago
somehow, in a billionth of a a second--they have changed positions in line

weird co-incidence:
debi mazar is one of the three girls in line, going into the bedroom, in GOODFELLAS (plays one of henry hill's mistresses)

and she also plays vince's publicity agent in ENTOURAGE--and is in the scenes before and after THIS screw up

she comes THIS close to being in both screw ups Laughing

RESERVOIR DOGS
another movie mistake:
In the scene where Quentin Terantino crashes the getaway car into the back of a parked car, (as he and Tim Roth and Harvey Keitel are fleeing the robbery), the car screeches around the corner and slams into it, and you can clearly see, from many different angles, that there is only a driver--no-one in the back seat. Yet, the next shot shows Tim and Harvey experiencing the collision as they are sitting in the back seat.

wow!
this may be a first
they copied my text, word-for word
coo

i noticed, with my first few submissions, that they really like to chop 'em down to the least possible words--and will change and cut tons of stuff, if you put tons of stuff in there that they don't deem absolutely succinct enough
they're brutal Laughing
they get pissed if you even use the word "scene" when you should actually be meaning to say "shot" (or vice versa)
it's even in the rules:--(that you're supposed to read, before you even submit something)--and they TEST you, to see if you've really read the rules!--i'm serious. if you don't read the rules, they have a little test that shoots yer submission straight into hell--and it never even gets read
so don't try it, foo! Evil or Very Mad
they, apparently, just get too much pure drivelly SHIT, so they can't read it all (and stay sane)--so they filter out, at least, the ones who can't even read the "rules"
if they don't like yer looks they won't even READ yer dirty submission Laughing Laughing
so it's become a kinda challenge to cut it down FIRST--and see if they think they can improve on it

in this case, i guess they didn't think they could Cool

rare for them

MOVIE MISTAKE: LOOPERS

ok--EVERTHING in a time-travel conundrum movie is a mistake--because of the impossibilities
bruce willis even admits (in the movie, itself), that they bloody well couldn't even go on with the damn movie, if one wanted to insist on explaining anything, when he says: "oh shut up about time travel, or we'll be here all day drawing diagrams with straws!"

but, anyway
the mistake:

When the younger version of the looper wakes up, after the older version knocks him out, he notices that the older version has stuck a note on his body advising him to catch a freight train and skip town...but when they show that from the older version's point of view, he knocks him out and just walks off--no note
