Our Top Five Hollywood Fails
We all know that in Hollywood it doesn’t always go the way you want it to. Sometimes the actor will struggle through their lines, your budget will be pushed up to accommodate some seemingly unnecessary prop, or in the worst of circumstances: A Ford Transit van might just make it into your medieval battle sequence. Here are our 5 best (or worst) movie bloopers to watch out for next time you sit in front of the big screen.
Bad boy Johnny Castle’s scene where he’s breaking the window to his car throws up all kinds of continuity errors, none more so than a red laser which suddenly appears on his back. Perhaps Robbie Gould wanted him out of the picture…
During the “mmm, that’s a tasty burger” scene, Vincent and Jules are shot at six times but during their witty dialogue before-hand, there are already bullet holes in the wall. That’s a Royale f*ck up with cheese.
During the battle of Carthage in the grand arena, when one of the chariots dramatically flips over, an air canister can clearly be seen. Granted the Romans were ahead of their time but probably not quite that far.
It would be impossible to compile a list of movie blunders and not include the magical storm trooper headbutt-of-door which comes about while Luke is trapped in the trash compactor. Adding various sound effects to the bump only makes it funnier!
Famed historians for years have asked the question whether Braveheart, Scotland’s kilted hero existed. What they fail to ask is whether the Celts had access to his on transportation and whether it was big enough to fit weaponry and a huge amount of blue face paint inside. The appearance of the Ford Transit Van kills any historical accuracy and draws viewers back to the realisation that this was filmed 20th century Ireland.
