The 1994 comedy-drama film “Forrest Gump” is repeatedly on lists of the greatest films ever made. And despite its incontestable success, the movie contains several inaccuracies that probably only a die-hard fan who’s watched the film multiple times would pick up on.
For example, during the scene where Forrest reunites with his love interest, Jenny, and meets his son for the first time, a clothes iron can be seen standing upright on an ironing board. However, in the next shot, it is already laying flat. How was it able to move so fast?
Men In Black (1997)
"Men in Black" follows Jay (Smith) in his journey joining the super-secret Men in Black organization. As he arrives, he initially receives a facility tour, which means the viewers are bombarded with new details and information, making it easy for us to miss the holographic computer displaying several alien locations.
If you're quick enough, you'll notice each image is a celebrity (an alien in disguise). This brilliant shot includes celebs like Danny DeVito and Sylvester Stallone.
We have no problem giving credit where it is deserved. It definitely took a lot of talent to master the fight scenes in this action film. But, there is one thing that most viewers overlook in the film.
When Russell Crowe fell, viewers can see his lycra shorts. While there’s nothing like a man in some lycra wear, nobody in ancient Rome would have been wearing Lycra shorts. Even if they wanted to wear it underneath their armor, those shorts didn’t exist in those times. And sorry to say, but the ancient Romans definitely missed out!
Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999)
In the first of the three Star Wars prequels, there is a small and hard-to-notice easter egg that director George Lucas decided to place in the film. This shocking moment has many grabbing their remote and hitting pause.
In the scene when senators and other politicians meet to talk, a glance at a specific platform will show a family of alien friends that may remind you of another movie. What movie, you may be asking? E.T! Keep your remote close next time you're binging Star Wars.
Pearl Harbor (2001)
"Pearl Harbor" sadly, suffered from both plot-based and historical problems. But, there was one wardrobe-related flaw in particular, which many people may have actually overlooked, and you have too, probably.
If you pay close enough attention, you will notice that the girls in the film were with their legs bare. But, women during this time period (1941) would never have been seen like this. They would have been wearing nylon stockings or painted on stockings with a line down the back of the legs considering that nylon was in short supply.
