This is covered in the Firefly DVD commentary track. To get the wide shot they had to pull Alan Tudyk's chair back from the console/yoke and Alan Tudyk mimed as though he was still holding the yoke. Now if we look carefully, I believe that we will see Alan is not holding anything! Nobody noticed, we had to pull the chair back to get the shot and ...

Late edit: While I was figuring this out the hard way, Paulie_D got the same info from the DVD commentary... I'll call it parallel thinking ;-) Between the first and second pic the camera has moved in towards the actor, but also across [camera right] & panned camera left. If you look at the only really distinctive markers on the console, the green/blue ...

It took me a while to figure this out but it's not a horse skeleton... ...it's a melted floor walkway panel. Zahn does the "running down a tunnel away from flame blast" thing and leaps to safety...from the walkway. In your original image you can see that the melted walkway connects to the walkway in the tunnel.

It's a goof due to different aspect ratios of different media. The Helicopter shadow was not in the original theater release, only showing up when packaged for other media. According to the pilot: Due to Blyth's impaired sight lines, the camera operator concludes Kubrick “just liked those particular shots and didn't worry about the shadows.” He then ...

I believe the episode you are looking for is Homer Vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment from Season 2, at time 19:40 on my DVD. But I don't think it's an animation mistake per se - Homer is at the window and the other characters are in the background so are meant to look out of focus and "blurry". Well, judge for yourself :)

This was definitely the Death Star sequence from Episode 4: A New Hope. Will Brooker's book about the production of Star Wars explains in some detail how George Lucas left the shooting of FX scenes largely to Bruce Logan, and with very little of the remaining budget, forcing him to be imaginative in his execution. The Death Star trench scenes of A New Hope ...

According to this Reddit post, the red thing you see there is indeed an extra round for the shotgun, however, it is not the one that jammed the gun. That shell is deliberately clipped onto the side of the gun, near the receiver, so that he can quickly load a single shot directly into the gun. (Which is exactly what he does in the gif in that reddit post, if ...

Because the sequences are edited. You may be watching an edit assembled from several takes and entire lines of dialogue may be omitted at the editing stage. On some shoots, there may only be one camera. This means the scene has to be shot from one angle, performed multiple times, then the reverse shot set up, performed multiple times and an edit assembled, ...

The scene is the second "goof" of this YouTube video:

It's a bit different to Seanland's answer, but this site gives a couple of instances (both on the first page). Visible crew/equipment: At the funeral of William Wallace's wife, Murron, a white van can be seen. He bends down to kiss her and as he stands back up, if you look over his left shoulder through the trees you can see the van going past. It's very ...

Just to confirm Steve-O's answer. The Internet Movie Firearms Database (IMFDB) has a wealth of information on all types of weaponry used in movies. John uses a Benelli M4 Super 90 during the fight in the catacombs. It is fitted with a fixed stock and customized by TTI. When he shoots it for the first time, he fires 11 rounds before reloading; this would ...

Though, this is primarily opinion-based, but I can write some reasons why there are still plot-holes. 1. Budget They know there is still a plot-hole in the movie, but going back and re-shooting that whole scene can be out-of-budget. Therefore, they skip it. 2. No option Sometimes, they don't have any choice except leaving the plot mistake as is. They don'...

The budget is to blame: Part of the problem stemmed from a simple lack of money. Despite the success of One Hundred and One Dalmatians, Disney did not want to risk that much money on the film, and severely trimmed the film’s budget. It shows. If, for instance, you’re watching the film in a casual sort of way and just happen to think, huh, that ...

As far as I remember, this was done because Whedon wanted to film the series in anamorphic widescreen (1.78:1 aspect ratio), but the Fox insisted on broadcasting the episodes in 4:3. Whedon shoot wide for the incoming DVDs, keeping in mind only the center of the image would be seen on TV. This led to some scenes on DVDs (and later blu-rays) in which objects ...

This part is listed as a continuity goof in IMDb: At the end of John Wick 2 when Winston gives the excomunicado order its 4 pm on his watch and he says John Wick has 1 hour.But in Part 3 he becomes excomunicado effective 6 pm which should have been 5 pm according to the ending in Part 2 and there is this video about some errors in John Wick, the error ...

I'd categorize this as a production gaffe. A Google Image search confirms that when you look directly into the sunset, the Golden Gate Bridge is in profile, since it runs north-south, as you said. If the bridge is still standing, more than just the San Francisco peninsula would have to rotate 90 degrees. The landmass on the northern side of the bridge (...
