the other day I was reading at www.imdb.com (the internet movie database) and I came across the section "goofs".
I didn't know that there are so many mistakes being made...
Sometimes all of us find some funny or interesting mistakes in movies, but some people seem to try to find them all.
There is also a job called "continuity" in movie making. They try to prevent these mistakes, but even they are not perfect
Just an example from the movie Titanic (don't worry, not my favorite movie, but I was always very interested in the story around Titanic):
I remember when I first watched Matrix 1 I cought MANY before I ever new the IMDB site existed. I'm nerdy like that and I try to find those things when watching movies.
The most famous blooper is in Star Wars when a storm trooper bangs his head against a door in episode 4, I never actually noticed it until a few years ago and I've watched it many times since a very early age.

There's a dedicated site called http://www.moviemistakes.com/. I occasionally read there, and sometimes it's really amazing to see how much has gone wrong in just one movie. But somehow I never notice any mistakes when watching them. Only easter eggs

Many years ago I got the opportunity to be an extra on a movie filmed on Antigua.
The person I admired the most was the "script girl".
She had this massive three ring binder set of notebooks with the script and page after page of notes, polaroid photographs, sketches, etc.
They would take a polariod of us before the action in every scene (and everyone else), and then again when the scene stopped.
We saw some scenes shot eight or nine times from different angles. This lady had to get everyone in exactly the same spot before each shooting, and verify they ended up in the right spots at the end of the scene.
We were called back after five weeks because they did not like the scene where we were killed. She was responsible for making sure we had the same uniforms, the same mud stains on the pants, the same guns, the same web gear.
When we saw the movie a year later, we were able to tell that parts of the two different shootings were combined to make the final scene.
Movies are the world's most complex jigsaw puzzles. It's amazing to me that there are as few mistakes as we catch.

One of the best is from "The Green Berets":
The famous goof at the end of the movie where the characters watch the sunset over the ocean is impossible as the coast in this section, as well as virtually all of, Vietnam faces East. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063035/
