Most people love movies. They love to sit in the dark theater, sulk down, and immerse themselves in what they see on the screen. The writers, directors, cast, and crew work hard on the films that they are putting out there. Unfortunately, people aren’t always paying close attention. There have been some pretty apparent bloopers in the final cut, that nobody noticed until the movie was released to the audience.
Quentin Tarantino’s pulp fiction is one of the most memorable movies of the 90s. One of the most memorable scenes was when Samuel L. Jackson’s character, Jules Winnfield recited Ezekiel 25:17.

La La Land
La La Land is one of the most popular musicals of the 20th century. In the opening scene, dozens of dancers are dancing on cars stuck in traffic. You would think that the roofs of the cars would be dented while they danced, but if you look closely, the roofs are already dented when they start.
The 2014 film, American Sniper, is a film about a cold and calculated soldier with a warm side.

When Jaws came out in 1975, people’s fear of sharks in the ocean became much more intense. Trips to the beach were never the same after Jaws was released.

James Cameron’s 1997 film, Titanic, was one of the highest-grossing films of all time. While people loved the movie, there was one part that made them angry. At the end of the film, Rose is lying on a door floating in the freezing ocean, and Jack held on to the side and froze to death. The audience saw that the door was clearly big enough for them both to rest on, which would have saved Jack’s life. They should have used something smaller to make it more realistic.
Grease was set in the ’50s and was released in 1978. During the slumber party scene, Olivia Newton John’s character, Sandy, wanted the other girls to think that she was tough.

The 1985 adventure film, The Goonies was great. When the kids finally get out of the cave, the media is there to interview them.

It was later explained that there was a scene with an octopus, but it was deleted from the final cut. They just forgot to edit that part of Data’s interview out.
In the film Independence Day, aliens come to Earth to take over. They attack the White House, and the special effects were amazing. There was a problem when they took down the Empire State Building.

Forest Gump is one of the greatest films of all time. The film does contain one inconsistency. Forest’s former military commander invests some of their profits from Bubba Gump Shrimp into Apple.
