Pulp Fiction

Visible crew/equipment: When Vincent enters Mia's home for the first time, a camera and a camera operator are visible in a reflection on the windows in front of them. They have a black blanket or tarp covering them to make them harder to see. Also, a crew member on the far right sneaks in at the very last second. (00:30:50)

Visible crew/equipment: When Vince and Mia get back from Jack Rabbit Slims, and Mia is putting on the music, the shadow of a person walks past her on her left, but Vince is standing still in that scene. (00:48:35)

Suggested correction: I've viewed this mistake many times. What really happened here was Vince actually turned and walked down the hall to take the piss and what we are seeing is HIS shadow as he walks toward an over-lit backdrop. Then to make it worse the producers place him right back at the spot with his keys in hand and a softer lighting to make it look more romantic. So the real mistake could be when they made that sudden change without reviewing enough of the previous entry scene. (Either way you can still barely see how he turns to his right before walking casually down the hall).

Visible crew/equipment: When Butch and Marcellus are tied up and Zed is interrogating them, you can sometimes see the shadow of the stick of the boom mike on Zed, and sometimes even the microphone part of it.

Visible crew/equipment: When Jules is talking to Marcellus and describing what would happen if Jimmy's wife came home and found them all with a dead body, we see what would possibly happen in a scene where the camera follows the wife to where they are carrying the dead body. You can sometimes see the camera shadow on the walls when the camera follows her. (01:55:45)

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the apartment with Brett, Vincent closes the briefcase and leaves it on the kitchen counter. He continues to smoke until it's almost time to shoot Brett. They shoot Brett and the scene fades out to be continued later. Later we see that after shooting Brett, Vincent is focused on Marvin still in the corner having a panic attack. Jules tells Marvin to knock it off and the man comes out of the bathroom. Jules and Vincent shoot him, then Vincent chides Marvin for not telling them there was someone in the bathroom. Vincent only has his gun in his hand, no briefcase. Jules and Vincent argue about 'the miracle' and they leave. Marvin never leaves the corner until Jules tells him 'let's go'. Nobody has the briefcase. (00:18:10 - 01:53:30)

Jules Winnfield: Ezekiel 25:17. 'The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyrannies of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness. For he is truly his brothers' keeper and finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.' Now I've been saying that shit for years, and if you've ever heard it, it meant your ass. I never gave much thought to what it meant, I just thought it was a cold blooded thing to say to a mother fucker before I popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some shit this morning that made me think twice. Now I'm thinking it could mean you're the evil man, and I'm the righteous man. And Mr. 9mm here is the shepherd, protecting my righteous ass. Or maybe it means that you're the righteous man, and I'm the shepherd, and it's the world that's evil and selfish. Now I'd like that, but you see that shit ain't the truth. The truth is, YOU'RE the weak, and I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm trying, Ringo. I'm trying real hard to be the shepherd.
