How Good Is Your Eye? Can You Spot the Mistakes in These Films?

Even with their enormous budgets and highly trained crews, Hollywood movies can make filming and editing mistakes that sneak through to the final product. Put on your editor glasses and see if you can spot the mistakes in these films.

Coming to you from, this fun video challenges a filmmaker to spot mistakes in popular Hollywood films. Even with the insane budgets and skilled crews creating these movies, mistakes that make the final cut still slip in more often than you might think they do, and the more you learn about filmmaking and video editing, the more you'll start to spot the little slip-ups — in fact, it can be a lot of fun seeing how many you can find. Things like anachronisms or props that change between shots tend to be the most common, but every once in a while, you'll find something like an entire camera operator in a shot! The mistake that has always made me laugh the most has to be the van in the background of a scene from "Braveheart," as it's just so out of place that it's comical. Check out the video above to see how many you can spot!

Very very low quality content... youtuber video at its pinnacle, not on par with fstopper content quality at all.

It was a lot better than my trip to the dentist a couple of days ago.

I can only spot another video link article from Alex Cooke.

Well, I enjoyed it.

More grammar mistakes than movie mistakes in the video.

I tapped out at 2:54. Pain was just too much.
