Hollywood has been long since viewed as the gold standard when it comes to making films. Heck, with what producers, directors, and especially the actors are paid – you can only assume Hollywood films are the best of the best. While none compare to the perfection that is Star Wars (the originals, not the prequels), or the Terminator, The Matrixm Titanic, most Tarantino movies, and the Godfather series – there have been many that have, well, one too many horribly bad mistakes. Laughable mistakes at that. Given the amount of people that come together to make a Hollywood blockbuster, you’d think that nothing scene ruining could possibly slip by. But alas, one too many movie have been ruined. Here’s 10 of them that have some of the most dreadful, idiotic, and laugh-out-loud SMH mistakes that should have been noticed, but weren’t until it was too late…

Pirates of the Caribbean

Here we have Captain Jack Sparrow looking intensely for something (perhaps missing treasure), in Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl (released in 2003). While Jack is perhaps the most cunning and crafty pirate there is, if he only looked a little closer, he’d notice the Adidas tag sticking out of the bandana he’s wearing. Then he’d go and tell the producers to cut it off as Pirates haven’t existed for centuries, while Adidas is no more than 67 years old.

Star Wars

Ok, ok, we take back what we said earlier about Star Wars being flawless, because in this scene right here, a Stormtrooper bangs his helmet on an Imperial door. I suppose you could say he was walking on the ‘Dark Side’.

Gladiator

One of the biggest box office hits, Gladiator, faithfully captured the viciousness of Roman chariot battles back in 680BC. An interesting time for sure as it was a time when gas canisters (as shown here inside a chariot) hadn’t been invented yet. Someone should tell director Ridley Scott to hold his horses (literally) before yelling ‘action!’

The Matrix

It looks like we’re eating our own words here, as The Matrix – a pop culture masterpiece – had a flaw of its own. Sure, we’re being picky here, but how can Neo be standing in shock in the corner after agent Smith sealed his mouth shut, then, in the very next scene, be sitting back in the corner in his chair – as he is reflected in Smith’s glasses?

Harry Potter

Do you know what it takes to be a special effects artist in Hollywood? At a minimum, a 4-year college diploma in animation an film, and at the most, a university degree in film. So the only thing that one can surmise as to why the wires are visible on the floating candles in this Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is that the producer let his 15-year old kid with his cracked version of Photoshop work on this scene, while someone more qualified sat at home on his thumbs. That’s nepotism for you folks.

Glory

It appears that someone didn’t have the time to double check the edit in the 1989 film Glory, because in this scene where a young black slave is waving at a soldier that just liberated his plantation, the soldier is still wearing his Timex digital watch that we know he didn’t get from wardrobe.

Commando

Remember Commando, the 1985 action film directed by Mark L. Lester and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger? It definitely wasn’t one of Arnold’s best. And that’s not because of this scene here where a damaged Porsche he’s driving magically repairs itself in the very next scene. Sure, Porsches are a work of automotive art – but they simply can’t do that.

Pulp Fiction

Ok, so we’ve really got to eat our own hat here because while no film is more Netflix’d than Pulp Fiction – despite being the cinematic masterpiece that it is, created by one of Hollywood’s biggest film making geniuses of all-time in Quentin Tarantino – there’s still this one scene where John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson are standing in front of a bullet hole ridden wall, despite no shots having been fired yet.

Troy

Troy starring Brad Pitt was released back in 2004, but was set all the way back in 1200 BC, during ancient Roman times. While the Romans were the most civilized of civilizations during that time, we’re pretty sure they didn’t have airplanes – just like the one that is shown flying through the scene above. Actually, we just checked … the airplane was invented in 1903 AD, by the Wright brothers – making this perhaps the dumbest movie mistake in the history of movies.

Fifty Shades of Grey

Unless you’re into bad female porn, you probably missed this one in the cinematic version of the best-selling book 50 Shades of Grey. But in the 2015 BDSM romance film, there’s a Macbook given to one of the main characters in the beginning of the film, that’s completely different from the one she’s using later towards the end. Like the film, that’s one serious downgrade.

Spider-Man

After giving his web slinging powers a go in the 2002 version of Spider-Man, Peter Parker knocks over a lamp on his desk that magically is back in place in the very next scene. I suspect the editor is in quite the sticky situation (job wise) after this one was noticed.

Harry Potter

This is the second time we see Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone making the list. Before it was for the wires on the floating candles, now, it’s the metal saddle attached to Harry’s broomstick in the Quidditch scene. As any good editor knows, one mistake can suspend all believability. Let’s hope director Chris Columbus suspends, no, fires his current editor and hires a new one for any future Harry films.
