Fixed now in the blu-ray. But I kind of miss this goof!
Dr. O, What exactly is the goof? I liked Bishop, was sad when they did that 2 him...
They have removed it digitally now, but Lance Henriksen's real body was clearly visible emerging from a hole in the floor where he was stood as he reaches to grab Newt.
I never noticed it until somebody pointed it out - and then I could never not see it. One of those things.
I liked the way that they played Bishop slightly creepy and ambiguous for about half the film - and then gradually made you like him. I thought that was clever.
Yes, they're good at manipulating us...
Seen perfectly through Ripley's eyes. I loved it too!
Have you ever watched a movie, seen something dumb, and questioned it? This could be something as simple as one scene the character is normal. Then in the next one there is a cut that's never explained how the character received it. Maybe it was a scene, line, car, clothes, plot, background, etc. What was it that you noticed?
I love the Indiana Jones movies, but not the last one that came out. During the last Indy movie, I found myself going why more during the temple scene.
Did anyone ever question it the temple area?
I watched it going ok so the men are attacking. Where's the women, and kids?
Maybe a city or village? Where was it located?
Plus, the temple area is now filled with water, so a ancient tribe wiped out?
Just a few dumb things I noticed.
Funny, this video pointed out alot of goofs.
There's a great early 90s martial arts film called Showdown in Little Tokyo. It start Dolph Lundgren and Brandon Lee as cops going against Cary Tagawa. Anyway, Cary's character decides to kill one of his associates by putting him in a car and crushing it. When they do close-ups, it's the actor, pleading for his life. When they pull back, it's very obviously a mannequin, just sitting there while his pleading is dubbed over. It's cheese genius.
I love it when the "cheese shop" actually has cheese it it!
But they must be very clean.
And have more than "one..... nope, nope sorry... don't have it".... kind of cheese! If you please!
Is there a movie mistake that you notice every time you watch the film and it always ruins the moment a little?
Mine is near the end of Braveheart when
the princess visits Wallace in prison.
The door behind them goes from almost closed to halfway open between shots and it's very obvious because of the light coming through.
Another is at the end of The Road after
the Man dies
and you can see a vein in his neck pulse in close-up.
The one that I've never been able to see is from Doctor Who - Pyramids of Mars. The supremely powerful alien being / Egyptian god Sutekh is finally free from his prison, rises from his chair, and a stage hand reaches up and grabs the cushion that's stuck to his bottom.
Any time they have a car roll over, get flipped, and there is no motor/transmission. Worst is cars going over cliffs already on fire, even blowing up semis. A semi is diesel and diesel don't catch on fire like gasoline cars. So why do we see countless times the trucks blowing up in movies?
Lost season 3 they have Mikhail running through the woods, and you can see in running close ups it is a stunt double. Caught that when they first aired the episode.
My all-time favorite of that sort is in the Classic Star Trek episode Space Seed. During the big fight between Kirk and Khan, you can obviously tell that it's two stunt doubles. It's probably the most obvious of the whole series (I'm certain that @ant-mac will remind me if there are any scenes that are moreso).
Nothing comes immediately to mind, but that sounds like a damn fine reason to re-watch the entire DVD box set. Actually, I have two. One of STAR TREK as it originally appeared and one with the all-knew CGI improvements. With the CGI improvements, it looks like it was filmed just a few years ago. I love it.
I believe they just have the remastered CGI version on Netflix. I've been wanting to get the box set, just so I can do the comparison watch. I love the enhancements to Amok Time.
Sounds like a great reason for me to add another show to my viewing list.
I'll start off with my favorite film, The Thing (1982). There is a line by Wilford Brimley as he's smashing up the radios that's subtitled 'No dogs make it a thousand miles through the cold', I've always heard 'No dog could make it a thousand miles to the coast'.
This is more subtle than a lot of subtitle fails and, while it sounds to me more like 'to the coast', maybe I'm wrong.
Hmmm... won't load with time code. Skip forward to about 1:32
I've always heard, "'No dog makes it a thousand miles to the coast."
Back in 2015, Back to the Future nostalgia was at an all time high, as that was the year Doc Brown travels to in Back to the Future 2 to save Marty's kids, and repair the timeline. Since then, the franchise has cooled considerably, but that doesn't mean people aren't still watching these time travel adventures obsessively. And now one of the saga's bigger fans has discovered an Easter egg that has gone mostly unnoticed for the past 27 years. While some have probably spotted it, it's never been well documented. At least, not until now.
Director Robert Zemeckis helped pioneer the new Easter egg Renaissance that we experience in most big budget franchise outings nowadays. The three Back to the Future movies are loaded with them. So many that some are still being discovered some 27 years later. Such is the case with a bandit mask used by Doc Brown during Back to the Future 3's big train hijacking scene. One fan noticed something quite familiar about this rag, sharing it on a Reddit post over the weekend.
But the Easter egg is actually an Easter egg held within an Easter egg, one that first popped up in Back to the Future 2. When Doc and Marty travel to the year 2015, Doc is seen wearing a futuristic shirt that quite well suits his personality. It also acts as a bit of foreshadowing for what's to come in the Western-themed final outing. While discussing the ramifications of interacting with various individuals in the future, and how it will further disrupt the space time continuum, he has on a colorful and cartoony shirt that features trains set against a yellow sunset, horses galloping alongside, with pillowy smoke spewing from the smokestack. Familiar scenario, right.
Upon initial viewing, most fans didn't think too much about that shirt, or how it was a spoiler for Back to the Future 3's final act. But as is the case with Doc Brown, the scientist never wastes material. And this all ties into Mr. Fusion, which recycles for power. Only, Doc didn't throw this shirt in to help fuel his further adventures through time. He instead must have had it stashed in the back of the DeLorean. As he is seen using it once again in Back to the Future 3. Only here, it has been repurposed into a bandit mask, which Emmett wears across his face when he and Marty take over the train. Marty is wearing a dark grey scarf in this call back scene.
Most didn't ever notice that Doc Brown was putting his shirt from 2015 back to good use in Back to the Future 3. But there it is. And to back up this claim, displays of both props shown side-by-side clearly confirm that Doc's bandit rag is made from the same material as the shirt. Which was created specifically for the movie by its costume designer. Most chimed in on Reddit that they'd never ever noticed this fun call back. One fan says this about the Easter egg, which truly is a big spoiler, years before spoilers were such a big thing in modern social fan club circles.
"[The] shirt depicts a train, two horses, and a car. All being transportation that aided Marty to return to 1985. A bonus is that the images point left, or west on a standard map."
In the final moments of Back to the Future 3, when Doc and Marty have to stop the train, the duo mount horses and gallop towards it. They then pull off a very apologetic heist. It just goes to show that no matter how many times you might watch a movie, there are always new things to discover.
Here's the images
