10 Disastrous Crew Visible Mistakes in Movies

It’s inevitable that every movie will have a mistake somewhere and obviously some are hard to spot but when you find out about them it’s amazing how glaringly obvious they really are!

These days you would think with digital tech that it would all be cleaned up before release but maybe the film makers just decide to leave it in, just as something to spot!

Anyway below are 10 movies with disastrous mistakes that you may or may not have spotted before!

1. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King – Crew Among the Orcs

2. Black Hawk Down – Civilian in the Humvee

3. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl – Cowboy

4. The Matrix – Camera Seen in Doorknob

5. The Rocky Horror Picture Show – Crew in the Corner

6. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets – Dueling Scene Blunder

7. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – Cables and Ropes, Oh My!

8. The Twilight Saga: New Moon – Mic Wire Clearly Seen

9. A Nightmare on Elm Street – Crash Mat for the Killer?

10. Men in Black II – Safety Harness Visible

The list above was put together by Movies Talk and full details of each mistake can be seen here.

One mistake that I always clearly remember but wasn’t crew visibility issue was the gas canister on the back of a chariot in Ridley Scott’s Gladiator! Part of me likes this mistakes though and as a filmmaker I wonder if they sometimes leave them in intentionally for the fans to pick up on!

What mistakes have you noticed before?

20 celebs who have aged terribly

This morning I saw a post talking about 20 celebs who have aged terribly. As soon as I see these kinds of posts my face contorts into a position of disgust. Not disgust at the celebs who have supposedly aged badly but at the world that thinks it’s ok to judge people in such a way and describe it as media or entertainment.

So what if someone is older, that’s actually a fact of life, it happens! And those with botched surgery, well if they were not fearful of being judged for looking older or not looking a certain way in the first place then they never would have wanted the surgery in the first place.

Next time you see a list like that please do yourself a favor and don’t click on the link, don’t engage in this kind of “entertainment” and be a little less fickle.

Do you agree?

The best movie of every single year since 1894

Someone on Reddit has put together a list of the best movie of every single year since 1894. How frickin awesome is that! And it’s not just their opinion either, they did it with the use of IMDB ratings, which I think is a fair reflection of current belief of what is and what is not the best movie of a particular year! So, the of course has many you would adamantly disagree with but it’s a pooled result, a democratic one (those who don’t use the net of course have been excluded) that gives a good cross section and insight into what we like.

14 Sexiest Celebrities With Ugly Significant Others

Ugly, beautiful, all in the eye of the beholder right? And in reality it would be better for us all if it wasn’t anything to do with seeing, but to do with hearing, feeling, learning. Of course it’s not that way and the current standard set by Hollywood, the media and those who subscribe to those ideals rule. The world sets itself by standards of beauty who’s fickleness are shown by the fact that they change over the year. So called visual beauty is not fixed and therefore is not real! That’s my opinion.

So, this isn’t a piece telling you which people are uglier than their beautiful partners, No this is a comment on that piece, the piece I saw today on another site. Of course the list tries to redeem the ‘ugly’ ones by saying what other awesome things they do (even though they are so darn ugly) but c’mon this list just should not exist, it reinforces stereotypes that we should not be pushing, should not be encouraging and that we should be fighting within.

So there are certainly people with ugly partners, but by ugly I mean nasty, mean, horrible people! Often those with these ugly partners are ugly themselves and if not are in some ways abused and bullied to stay within the mentally draining scenario!

What do you think, am I being touchy about the whole subject? Should I just give it a rest and pipe down or do I have a good point?

Dictator Islam Karimov falls out with pop star daughter Gulnara Karimova accused of having her beaten

You may have never heard of Dictator Islam Karimov or his pop star daughter Gulnara Karimova but now the media’s ears have been pricked since she smuggled a letter to the BBC outlining use  her father has her and her 15 year old p under house arrest, how  she was beaten and that this happened after she supposedly spoke out against her father’s regime.

The country her father helms is Uzbekistan said to be one of the most corrupt nations in the world and Karimov’s regime has been blamed for making it one of the 50 poorest nations in the world.

His daughter is a pop star in the country and until last year was the country’s ambassador to the United Nations. Now she says she is a prisoner in her own home living under constant threat and surveillance.

Her estrangement and now punishment from her father is also apparent on her Twitter account where she is active.

Of course many people are feeling a bit negative about this and some have accused her of lying, saying she is trying to trick another country into giving her asylum. There are so many victims in the country that don’t have a voice and have no position of power.

I personally can’t comment, my first exposure to this is coming today, having known nothing about the dictatorship prior to this news story hitting. Of course is she is being beaten then like any person she deserves help, so do any other victims of any regime and sadly that’s no small task. However the word, learning and reading a variety of media and opinions can help bring issues to light, make us all more aware of the world at large and maybe even contribute towards helping.

49 Products You’ll Never Look At The Same Way Again

Can you guess what a Magnum icecream is the same dimensions as? Did you know that Pams spray isn’t named after Pam, but it is named after someone! How many Europeans are conceived on an Ikea bed? What was Pepsi originally called? What came a looooong time before the vacuum cleaner?

These product facts from Buzzfeed are pretty darn cool and some of them will make you look at the product differently! Here are the first 10!

1. The first lip balms were based on human ear wax.

2. Ikea products are actually named based on a system. Beds, for example, are named after places in Norway.

3. And it’s been estimated that 1 in 10 European babies is conceived in an Ikea bed.

4. The Quaker Oats man is named Larry.

5. The Cap’n Crunch guy’s full name is Horatio Magellan Crunch (and he isn’t really a captain).

6. Electric vibrators were invented over a decade before the electric iron and vacuum cleaner, because priorities.

7. A chemical originally found in human sperm is used to prevent wrinkles and therefore you can get a facial* with it.

*like at a spa.

8. The first commercial toilet paper was made from manila-infused hemp sheets, although people preferred to wipe with pages from the Sears catalogue instead.

9. “Skunked” beer isn’t caused by a change in temperature, but by a change in light exposure.

10. One of Sony’s first products was an electronic rice cooker.

And the rest can be read here.
