Movie Mistakes. A truly massive and comprehensive site by and for movie enthusiasts, not just the fussy ones either.(via Something Like That)

I object to Teen Wolf Too as perfect. That entire movie was a mistake.

I swear I was ruthless in checking this wasn't a double post. But, seeing as the site has been in existence in one form or another since 1996, it may be that my google-fu just isn't good enough. Let me know. I thought it might be a welcome distraction from other topics even if it has popped up before! And yes, I too find the excessive ad-presence annoying.

Star Wars: When the stormtroopers break into the control room, watch very carefully and you will be able to see a storm trooper nearly render himself unconscious by smacking his head off a door frame. This is now so notorious that on the new DVD there's an audible "bump" when he hits it.

Not just that. In Attack of the Clones, you can observe Jango Fett banging his head on his spaceship door. You see, the storm troopers are his clones.

Lots of ads and pay-for-access. Where do I sign up?!

"Nitpickers" seems more robust (though much uglier).

I've always used eeggs.com and slipups.com. But moviemistakes might be better. Thanks for the link.

Oh my god I can't believe this website has never been posted before! I've known about it for about 5 years (missed my chance for my first posting on MeFi then). It's a fantastic site and first heard about it as the guy that runs it used to do a slot on a breakfast TV show called 'The Big Breakfast' in the UK.

juv3nal, that is a good one, I must say. The image of Welles being thunderstruck by the realization of it is hilarious, and must, therefore, be true.
