Big Blockbuster Movies With Even Bigger Mistakes

Seriously, who knew there were cars in 13th Century Scotland…


    Let’s be honest, there’s nothing better than getting home after a long hard day, throwing your purse and jacket on the floor (you’re just gonna be using it again in a few hours, right?), jumping onto your couch in a totally unfavorable fashion, putting your poorly feet up, and shoving on an awesome movie. After all, what’s better than escaping to a whole new world? You can take yourselves off to Hogwarts to study Defence Against the Dark Arts with *shivers* Dolores Umbridge, you can take yourselves to the weird and wonderful world of Oz and chill out with the flying monkeys (although you might not want to), and you can even take yourself into the center of the universe to guard the galaxy with the Guardians of the Galaxy (what an inventive name). Yuh-huh, with so many new Hollywood movies making their way into our lives every single week, it’s fair to say that we’re spoiled for choice – especially as they are getting more and more inventive and creative. It’s actually pretty darn amazing how movies work, and when you think about it, it’s actually a little creepy. Who wants to stare at other people as they live out their lives? Isn’t that a bit…stalkerish? Well, we don’t really care, because movies are awesome! It seems we’re not the only ones embracing our inner stalker, because millions of people watch movies every single day, and count down the days until the latest blockbuster hits the silver screen. Because major blockbuster movies are adding the likes of CGI and green screen to their storylines, we’ve learned to expect absolute perfection. If the movie takes place in space, we need to believe every single aspect of their wardrobe and their locations. If a movie takes place in the past, we need to believe that we have been transported back in time. While most blockbusters hit the nail on the head with all of these details, there are some that just fall short of perfection. Of course, this often happens with small movies with even smaller budgets, but you might be surprised to learn that this is also the case for big blockbuster movies with even bigger mistakes…

    Future Specs

    Have you ever watched Django Unchained and thought, “Darn, those are nice sunglasses, Django.” Yeah, we did too. But obviously, Quentin Tarantino forgot to look this part up in the history books. Or he just didn’t care (more likely). Sunglasses were only introduced into America in the 1930s. This film, however, is set in the late 1850s. Ooops…
