The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers mistake picture

Deliberate mistake: Just after they've clashed with the Warg, while riding on Arod, Legolas lets loose his first arrow and hits a Warg in his face and it flips over. In this first shot, the background behind this Warg is the same background as in the very next shot. This first background shot is really the successive shot of this second background shot. The shot just after Gimli falls off his horse, is the third successive shot, only it's been flipped. The same men on horses are riding across the field in the background, as this was one piece of footage that was cut into three parts. Warg and riders were added to the image, to make them appear different and one was flipped. (00:11:05)

Revealing mistake: The braids over Legolas' ears on his scalp, change drastically in position, shape, amount of hair that's braided and how it is braided, as does the amount of his side hair that is swept up into the back braid, in consecutive shots! The hair differs considerably in the following shots. In the armory, when Legolas and Aragorn argue and when Legolas apologizes to Aragorn, for despairing. When Legolas watches Aragorn hugging Haldir. When Legolas stands with Aragorn and Gimli on the Deeping Wall, awaiting the Uruk-hai. As Legolas lets loose the arrows towards the Berserker Uruk-hai. In these two shots too. First, standing outside of Fangorn with Aragorn and Gimli (flipped shot). Then, in Fangorn, saying, "This forest is old..."(flipped shot). (00:58:15 - 01:00:35)

Continuity mistake: The braids over Legolas' ears on his scalp, change drastically in position, shape, amount and how it is braided, as well as the amount of his side hair that is swept up into the back braid, in consecutive scenes or shots. It's impossible for him to change his hair between the following shots. At Balin's Tomb, after Pippin's carelessness, when Legolas turns around with Aragorn to look at the door. When he aims his arrow at the door, waiting for Orcs. When he lets loose the last arrow into the Troll's mouth. After leaving the chamber, when Gandalf says, "A Balrog of Morgoth." When he leaps across the broken stairs. Catching Aragorn after Aragorn drops from the broken stairs. While he stands outside Moria, after losing Gandalf. (00:28:00 - 00:42:55)

Continuity mistake: At Amon Hen while battling the Uruk-hai, Legolas yells to Aragorn, "Aragorn, go." In the next far wide shot, we see Aragorn run between the statue and Legolas, reaching the pillar. In the very next close-up, Aragorn is just running past the statue on his left, as Legolas kills two Uruks with one arrow. (01:19:25)

Revealing mistake: There are quite a few times where the Uruk-hai fitted skins wrinkle, crease or even bubble up where they shouldn't. Some examples are at Amon Hen, when the Uruk-hai show up and they fight Aragorn, Boromir, Legolas and Gimli. (01:19:25)

Continuity mistake: Having just arrived on shore at Amon Hen, in the first shot Legolas says, "It is not the eastern shore that worries me." Then as he says, "Something draws near", his hair lies differently at his shoulders. In the next shot, as he says, "I can feel it", his hair now lies the same as in the first shot. (01:13:10)

Continuity mistake: After diverting the Uruk-hai at Amon Hen, Pippin and Merry run. Just before Boromir comes to their rescue, in the far shot, they are seen running over a stone bridge and Pippin is in front of Merry. In the very next close-up, Merry is running in front of Pippin. (01:20:55)

Continuity mistake: At Amon Hen, when Merry and Pippin realize that Frodo needs to leave, they start jumping up and down and shouting to get the attention of the Uruk-hai. While they jump up and down, in the back shot, Pippin is behind Merry, but in the front shot, Pippin is in front of Merry. (01:20:20)

Continuity mistake: After Frodo runs from Boromir, invisible and wearing the Ring on his right hand, he sees the Eye. As he starts to fall, with his left hand he pulls the Ring off the finger of his right hand. Yet, in the next shot still falling, now visible, we see his right hand closed in a fist and when he lands on the ground, he's clutching the Ring in his right hand. (01:16:50)

Continuity mistake: As Boromir blows the Horn again at Amon Hen, in the first wide shot, he's battling an Uruk. In the close-up, he slices the whole arm off that Uruk, just under his shoulder, which starts to spurt, and the dismembered arm isn't seen. In the next wide shot, we see the whole arm of that Uruk still there and he is just dropping his sword out of his hand, then falls to the ground. (01:22:10)

Super Grover Premium member

Continuity mistake: At Amon Hen, just after Boromir blows the Horn again, in the two wide shots, Pippin holds his sword with his right hand. In the next close-up, Pippin holds it in his left hand. Also seen behind Pippin in this close-up, is Boromir's sword already sticking up out of an Uruk. In the very next wide shot, showing Pippin jumping onto an Uruk, seen between Pippin and the Uruk, is Boromir's sword in the body and Boromir is just removing his hand from it. (01:22:10)

Revealing mistake: While Boromir battles with the Uruk-hai at Amon Hen, to protect Merry and Pippin, there is a close-up of Pippin running towards an Uruk. In the first shot we see Pippin's face. In the next wide shot, not only are the two scale doubles noticeable, the back of the Uruk that Pippin is jumping onto, is also very different than in the next shot. The Uruk's back is much dirtier in this shot, and the clothes are different too. (01:22:10)

Continuity mistake: During the Warg battle, just after Gimli falls off Arod, the Warg across the field lifts his face and spots Gimli. In the two close-up shots, directly behind the Warg, on his right, there are two arrows sticking up out of a dead body. However, in the wide shot that follows, there is no body with two arrows protruding, anywhere behind him. It is not the bodies to his side. (00:11:15)

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After the credits, Barbossa is shown lying on the treasure pile. The Aztec chest is up at the top and the lid is closed and straight. (It was also shown with the closed lid when Jack asked Will to drop him off at his ship.) Then, in the last shot, when the monkey jumps up onto the chest, the lid is on the Aztec chest, but it is partially open now. (02:22:10)

Continuity mistake: During the final duel between Barbossa and Jack, Will runs to the Aztec chest. Jack tosses the medallion to Will, and as Barbossa turns his head, we see the white shirt collar. Barbossa pulls out his gun and aims it towards Elizabeth. In Barbossa's front shot, there is barely white collar showing, but in the next side shot, the white collar shows on both sides. Jack shoots Barbossa, and in the front shot, there's barely white collar showing. When he turns to look at Will, and when he turns back towards Jack, the white collar shows again. (02:00:40)

Continuity mistake: In the blacksmith shop there's a table with asst tools. In all these shots a few of the tools are arranged differently and in some shots they're completely different tools. 1 - when Jack notices Mr Brown. 2 - behind Jack when Will starts to come into the shop. 3 - when Will says, "Right where I left you." 4 - behind Will, when he and Jack duel. 5 - behind Will, when Jack holds the gun on him. (00:21:55 - 00:26:30)

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Will goes to the fort the morning after the pirate rampage in Port Royal. Will says, "We have to hunt them down. We must save her," and his shirt collar is very crooked. Governor Swann says, "If you have any information concerning..." and in this shot Will's collar and vest are straight. In the following shots the shirt collar is crooked again. (00:41:20)

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl mistake picture

Revealing mistake: Keira's stunt double Sonia is obvious in different shots throughout the film. When Elizabeth walks onto the deck of the Pearl, only to see the skeletal pirates, she stumbles backward and lands on the tarp, and it's very apparent that the one who comes back down from mid-air onto the tarp and goes back up is Sonia. Later on Isla de Muerta, Elizabeth whacks Jacoby (burning beard) with the gold rod and soon after she approaches a second pirate. This pirate is very pleased with himself when he takes the gold bowl off his head, and we can then see it is Sonia actually whacking him, but in the very next shot it is Keira reacting to whacking the guy. (00:59:05 - 02:00:05)

Continuity mistake: Aboard the Pearl, Barbossa says, "Did you not notice? That be the same little island we made you governor of on our last little trip." While he says those words, 1st shot- the wind blows their hair the same way. 2nd shot- Jack's ponytail at the top of his head is blowing in a different direction. 3rd shot- the wind doesn't blow their hair at all. 4th shot- their hair is blowing just like in the second shot. 5th shot- the wind doesn't blow their hair at all again. (01:33:55)

Continuity mistake: Will stands on the Pearl's rail holding a gun under his chin, there are wide shots of everyone on deck, and close-ups of Jack, Elizabeth and Barbossa. The pirates and their captives differ between the close-ups and wide shots, in their appearance, position, and the way the pirates hold their weapons. Two examples: Will says, "And the crew. The crew are not to be harmed," in the close-ups Jacoby is right behind Jack, but in the wide shots he is much further away from Jack. Also in Barbossa's close-ups Pintel stands to the right of Cotton, but in the wide shots Pintel stands to Cotton's left. This type of occurrence happens throughout all of these shots. (01:31:10)
