    Look here, Sam has that... thing.. in his hand at 12:39
    [​IMG]

    Sam knocks Dylan into the pillar just before 2:25. So obviously, Sam was standing there staring at Dylan for over an hour
    [​IMG]

    Takes Dylan a day to fall, and at 12:15 the next afternoon, he's dead, and Sam's looking at him.

    Another day passes, and Ratchet and Bee take down the pillar at 11:00
    [​IMG] :rolleyes: 

    Clearly I'm joking around, but I didn't want this to be a boring thread, so I did all that. Anyway, my question is, how come these things get overlooked as the movie is being produced. I know things like this happen all the time, but I'm just curious as to why. There's been movies that have huge mistakes, for example, there's a film with two men shackled to pipes in an underground bathroom, one of the men make it out, the other does not, the one who does not originally had his left ankle shackled, but various movie mistakes in following sequels had his right one shackled, which led people to believe he was alive, and made it out, although it was confirmed he did not.

    I wanted to post this here, because I knew many would see it, but I had to give it a Transformers reference, so I did. Anyway, to sum it up, my question is simple, how can an obvious mistake be overlooked so easily by producers?

    Because such mistakes are to Michael Bay as a dust mite is to me. Unimportant and insignificant.

    This thread gave me a good laugh. I didn't even know what you were talking about until I saw the clock in the background. Also,

    "I wonder what time it is?"

    Have you thought of filming at different times?

    Yes, but I'm sure that CGI could of fixed the time issue.

    That'd be a lot of time and effort for something most people won't care about. Though many filmmakers do go the extra mile and control what the clocks in their films display.

    Hollywood has gotten shall we say rather lazy and almost always in a mad dash to get films out the door so they can start promoting whatever comes next. It's kind of rare to have someone actually check the film for flaws.

    Of course TV can be just as bad. An episode of Alphas drove me insane because a quarter was an important prop to one of the stories but they used 4 different quarters when the story meant for it to be the same quarter. Not such a big deal if was just the tiny date printed on the quarters but they were using state quarters.

    Yea, but I don't think Bay thought someone would take the time to pause the TV, look at the TV an inch away and check the godamn time from each frame from the scene. But hey they never met Bluebe though.

    Dude, its an obvious error.
    Either that, or with all the city chaos, the clock got busted.

    they shot at different times. even preparing the next scene could sometimes be time consuming when preparing the whole thing

    The proximity of the pillar to the clock made it malfunction.
