The Last Starfighter

The Last Starfighter (1984)

6 mistakes

Visible crew/equipment: When the Starcar lands for the second time, there is a shot where the car comes to a stop in front of the camera. In this shot, the wooden rafters of the sound stage can be seen. (Noted in the director's commentary).

Continuity mistake: Right after Alex and Beta have their argument in Alex's Bedroom, Louis wakes up and then pretends to fall back asleep. In the shot (with the door that Alex just used in the background) Louis gets up again and bends over to look at Beta, he's moving towards the camera. However, in the next shot, Beta hasn't moved, and he was looking in the direction of Alex (the opposite side of the bed Louis should have been on).

Audio problem: When Alex and Maggie are going back into space at the end, everyone moves back and they yell goodbye. You can hear Otis say goodbye, but his mouth does not move at all.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Beta takes off his head to adjust his hearing, it alternates between his real read, and an obvious dummy head between shots.

Other mistake: When Centauri "dies", he had a smile when stopped moving. After Grig closes Centauri's eyes, not only is the smile gone, but you see his now-closed right eye flinch after Grig's hand is gone.

Revealing mistake: As the stars speed up due to the star drive, you can see them shining through the solid part of the door.

Trivia

In the scene where Alex first meets Centari and climbs into the Starcar, notice how Alex's hair looks natural as he stands outside the car. After he gets in and asks "What are you doing?", notice how his hair looks totally different, almost as if it is burnt or something. The actor had become very ill and had to shoot certain scenes after he got sick. He wore a wig, which explains why during certain parts of the film, he looks pale and his hair looks burnt. You can also notice the wig in the scene when the "Beta" unit rides in a truck and laughs his head off to have a good time.
