The Wolf of Wall Street mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the very last scene in New Zealand when Jordan is giving a motivational speech, he approaches his first target in the audience and says 'Sell me this pen.' As he does so, he holds out a pen in his right hand. When we cut to the shot to the person's face, we see that the pen is in Jordan's left hand; this goes on and on with every person.

Oblivion (2013)

Factual error: When Jack retreats to the cabin for the first time in the film, he puts a Led Zeppelin record - Led Zeppelin II - and plays the first song on that side of the record, which turns out to be 'Ramble On'. Any Zeppelin fan would know that 'Ramble On' is song number 7 on side B, therefore the needle should have been placed somewhere in the middle of the disc. The first song on that side of the album would be Heartbreaker.

Starsky & Hutch (2004)

Trivia: David Soul, who played Hutch in the original television series, had this to say about the show's legacy. 'Paul and I made that show. Not the car. Screw the car. Paul and I were the stars, not that piece of junk.'

Titanic (1997)

Trivia: Director James Cameron knew he had found the perfect Jack in Leo DiCaprio when he invited the young actor to his office for an interview and he noticed that all his female staff were present for the meeting. Later on, during rehearsal, Kate Winslet was so impressed with DiCaprio that she said to James, 'Even if you don't hire me, hire him.' The rest, as they say, is history.

Raging Bull (1980)

Trivia: In the film, Jake asks Joey the now-famous line, 'Did you f*** my wife?' In an interview with Empire magazine, Joe Pesci, who played Joey, said 'Raging Bull fans come up to me and say, "Did you f*** my wife?" And I tell them, "Certainly. Doesn't everyone?"'

Heat (1995)

Trivia: According to the DVD extras, a new couple have moved into the house where Trejo and his wife Anna were killed. The lady of the house pulled back a carpet and points with pride where one can see the fake bloodstains of Trejo as he lay dying in the room where McCauley found him.

Hugo (2011)

Trivia: Shortly after Hugo drops a piece of metal from the suspending clock to the ground of the train station, the Station Inspector, assuming that Claude dropped it, loudly asks him if he is 'drunk, inebriated, shikker, etc.' The work shikker is from the Hebrew word shikkor for 'drunk'. Shikker actually means drunkard.

Pulse (2006)

Trivia: When Mattie sits in the bus just before her professor tries to put himself in its path, behind her is a bearded student, an extra. Repeated views of the films will find him a total of 3 times in 3 different scenes; first in the front school yard, and then in the bus, and one more time in a computer lab.

Trivia: Though Mark Hamill's face seemed so different in this film than it was in the first two Star Wars films, people attributed it to a car accident. According to the actor, he had the car accident before Star Wars came out, but what really happened has been terribly distorted. He says he's many supposed stories about facial surgery, surviving a car wreck, and his favorite of all, driving off a cliff.

Heat (1995)

Continuity mistake: In the parking lot, when Waingro escapes being executed, Neil and his crew spread out and look for him. It is nighttime and the sky is clear. Yet when Neil looks out to the distance, it is raining in the last shot.

Minority Report (2002)

Trivia: In the short story, Anderton was overweight, balding, and middle aged. Nothing to do with Tom Cruise.

Reservoir Dogs (1992)

Trivia: Steve Buscemi remembers how he was cast in this film: He was in the men's room when writer-director Quentin walk in and went to a stall. It was then that Quentin told Buscemi, 'Oh, I cast you as Mr Pink.' And the rest, as they say, is history.

Trivia: When Pippin causes a loud noise with the suit of armor, Gandalf scolds him by saying, 'Fool of a Took! Throw yourself in next time, and rid us of your stupidity.' The insult in the book was even funnier where Pippin threw a rock down a deep shaft which startled everyone and was scolded by Gandalf as follows: 'Fool of a Took! This is a serious journey, not a hobbit walking party. Throw yourself in next time, and we'll be rid of your stupidity. Now be quiet!'

Trivia: According to Ian McKellen: 'Tolkien's 10-year old grandson walked up to me and said that I was his favorite actor. Clearly a boy of taste.'

Trivia: Though he plays a pop-star musician, Hugh Grant has stated that he does not listen to music or own any CDs.

Other mistake: When Ripcord flies the black jet toward the White House, he decides to ascend to the atmosphere to rid the craft of the nanomites. As he flies toward the lawn and up the air, he narrowly misses hitting the balcony, where an agent shields himself with his arms from the jet. At such a close distance and at that incredibly fast speed, the agent would have been pulled in by the jet's wake and thrown up in the air.

El Mariachi (1992)

Trivia: Repeated viewing of the film will show how, at the beginning of the movie, the villains are huge, tall, and menacing, whereas near the end, we see more villains, but these are smaller, shorter, and leaner. Robert Rodriguez explains that at the beginning of the filming he hired big guys to play Moco's henchmen, but they were subsequently "killed off" and he had run out of extras that size, so he resorted to using extras of average height.

Oldboy (2003)

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Oh Dae Su is fighting with Lee Woo Jin's bodyguard Mr. Han, the latter flips Dae Su repeatedly until Dae Su very swiftly jabs Han in the ear with a pair of scissors, the blades of which are pointing upward from his fist. Han flips Dae Su one more time and that's when he feels the injury. He looks down on Dae Su and spots the scissors on his hand, but this time the blades are pointing downward from his fist.

Schindler's List (1993)

Trivia: Near the close of the war, when Oskar Schindler left the camp for the last time, he wasn't competely broke; witnesses remember he had suitcases full of jewels in the trunk of his car.

Trivia: Although Arnold originally would not do this film unless James Cameron was involved, the latter urged Arnold to go ahead and do it anyway, and at the same time ask for a huge chunk of money.

Inception (2010)

Question: In the first class section of the plane, after everyone has woken up from the dream and the mission is accomplished, shouldn't Robert Fischer be suspicious as to why he dreamed of everyone of his cabin mates?

Answer: (1) Most people forget most if not all of their dreams shortly after waking, so he probably wouldn't even remember they were there (the only thing he had to remember was the idea of breaking up the company, which the team planted very deeply); and (2) a common theory of dreaming is that it's simply your brain "reorganizing" itself, so it's not unusual to have recent people, places or events incorporated into your dreams (like the people surrounding him).

Goodfellas (1990)

Trivia: Though the film never mentions him, the second son of Henry's mob chief Paul, Paulie Jr., was actually Henry's best friend since youth and even introduced him to Karen. In the film he was replaced with Tommy, played by Joe Pesci. Paul Sr. had three sons with his wife Phyliss: Peter, Paul Jr., and Leonard.

Raging Bull (1980)

Trivia: At the beginning, Martin Scorsese did not want to make Raging Bull when he found out it was a sport-themed film, and Scorsese was - and is - no sport fan. When Robert DeNiro first spoke to him about Jake LaMotta, his initial reaction was, 'A boxer? I don't like boxing.' Cooler heads prevailed, and hence the movie was made.

23rd Jul 2010

Raging Bull (1980)

Trivia: In between shots during the boxing scenes, Robert DeNiro would have someone place a punching bag on his corner so he could practice when the cameras weren't rolling. When it came time to shoot, Robert was completely fired up, hence his electrifying performance.

Battle Royale (2000)

Continuity mistake: After Kawada gets his bag, he realizes something and returns to the classroom. Tossing the bag back to the soldier who threw it at him, he points to a bag behind him on the cart and tells Kitano, 'That's my bag.' In the next shot, he is pointing to a bag in front of him.

11th May 2010

Iron Man 2 (2010)

Factual error: As the credits roll, the songs are featured. The song 'Highway To Hell' by AC/DC is printed as Written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young, and Brian Johnson. It was not actually co-written by Brian Johnson as he was not yet the lead singer of the band. It was actually written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young, and Bon Scott, nee Ronald Belfort 'Bon' Scott, who was the lead singer then until his death in 1980, after which, Brian Johnson was then hired as the new lead singer.

The Losers (2010)

Continuity mistake: When Jake disguises himself as a messenger and enters a building intending to hack into a computer, he shows up at the ground floor lobby with his bicycle. Behind him, an Asian lady also turns from the lobby and walks past him. In another shot, the very same lady is seen entering the building from another entrance.

24th Apr 2010

Battle Royale (2000)

Trivia: In the film, the two transfer students are Kiriyama, the silent killer, and Kawada, the winner of a previous Battle Royale. In the original novel, only Kawada was the transfer student; Kiriyama was in the same class selected for this game of death. He was the main antagonist.

Remember Me (2010)

Trivia: Robert Pattinson was actually injured during breaks while doing a street scene - hordes of fans chased him out to the street and he was hit by a passing car. Though he was not fatally injured, he was somewhat shaken during the ordeal. Bodyguards and assistants came to his aid and shielded him from the overzealous admirers.
