Little Mistakes In Movies Only An Actual Filmmaker Would Catch

List Rules
Vote up the mistakes that are mildly infuriating.

It doesn't matter how expensive the production or big the property, little mistakes pop up in movies all the time. However, some are more difficult to spot than others, and it takes the eye of a filmmaker to pick them up. Thankfully, many of these eagle-eyed cinephiles have been posting their favorite examples online for all of us to gawk at. In Doctor Strange, a wide shot reveals a crew member blatantly standing around in the background. Sometimes the problems happen in post-production. In Avengers: Endgame, when Thanos attempts to snap near the end, his fingers clip into the palm of his hand. There are also plenty of instances where extras make some strange decisions. In Spectre, a man sweeping in the background doesn't get his broom closer than a couple of feet from the ground.

Check out this list of little mistakes fans spotted in big-name movies, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!
