10 movie mistakes so perfect they were left in

These mistakes were too good to edit out of the final movie! Subscribe to our channel: the world of filmmaking, we often imagine everything as being perfectly planned, rehearsed, choreographed, and perfect. But as most of us should know, there is no such things as perfection. Filmmakers are well acquainted with Murphy’s Law, which basically states that what can go wrong will go wrong. But hey, that’s life. Things don’t always go as planned. Not even in the seemingly perfect world of movie magic. It doesn’t matter how much you rehearse something, things can always take a turn for the worst. And sometimes mistakes can turn out to be a good thing and make scenes in films a lot better. These mistakes, or enhancements, are sometimes left in the final cuts of the films. Such is the case for several movies that we will be discussing today. In Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Star-Lord tries to hand over the orb that unbeknownst to him contains an Infinity Stone. But he ends up dropping it and without missing a beat grabs it and continues to hand it over to the Collector. This drop was a total mistake but it fits Star Lord’s dorky personality don’t you think? Did you know that the scene where Aragorn kicks a helmet and drops down screaming in agony was a mistake? No it wasn’t just the anguish of thinking Merry and Pippin were dead, Viggo Mortensen actually broke his toes when he did that take. Want to know what else made our list?

Django Unchained was my favorite moment because DeCaprio stayed in character even after hurting his hand. That shows true commitment and he didn't break character and just continued the scene.

I usually love your stuff but . . . you spend almost 2 minutes talking about each mistake and you never show it. And your pronunciation of people's names is, for lack of a better word, horrendous.

In The Princess Diaries, when Anne Hathaway's character is walking and talking up and down a set of bleachers, she slipped and fell but didn't break character. It totally fit with her character's lack of grace 😀

Should have had Batman: The Dark Knight in there. Scene where Joker blows up the hospital. When Joker sets of the bombs, only half the rigged explosives go off initially. Cameras kept rolling, ledger stayed in character, gave the remote a little nudge, the second round of explosives went off, and Joker toddles off

The moment where Viggo deflects a real knife is when battling the Uruk Hai at the end of the first movie, and that take was also kept in the final film.

Bullshit. The stormtrooper hitting his head wasn't left in because it was "so perfect." It was left in because George Lucas didn't notice it and no one else did in editing either.

Supposedly, the scene in It's A Wonderful Life where Uncle Billy walks off drunk from the engagement party had a similar blooper. The loud crash heard off screen followed by Uncle Billy saying "I'm alright!" was actually made by a worker who dropped some film cans.

For the "Star Wars" blooper, you forgot to mention that in later versions, a "BONK!" sound effect was added. XD

Is it me or sometimes they don’t show what they are talking about? I mean they show what leads to it and clips of the movie but they need to show more of the stuff they are talking about.

The Usual Suspects, while standing in the police line up, characters begin laughing and McManus (Baldwin) punches Fenster (Del Toro) in the arm. It works for the dialogue, and feeling of the scene, but it was unscripted. The laughter and punch were because Benicio Del Toro had just let a fart rip before delivering his line

In Star Wars A New Hope, Harrison Ford forgot his line when he was going to rescue Princess Leia. After they have attacked the prison, someone calls to check in on them. Harrison Ford says, "We're fine. All fine here. How are you?" It was so funny that Lucas kept it.

What about Martin Sheen when he was doing the scene for "Apocalypse Now" in the hotel room at the beginning? He actually was really drunk and when he punched the mirror, he cut his hand open but Francis Ford Coppola told him to just go along with it and kept filming.

Imma make a guess before i watch the video. See how predictable you guys are. Django unchained with Leonardo decaprios hand. In the other guys will farrel got hurt falling. Aragorn breaking his toe. Tom cruise breaking his ankle. New mission impossible. The bitch from blade runner breaking her arm. Thats about it... Damn i only got three. I should have got the zoolander and star wars ones too. These are all in multiple videos on multiple channels.

not what murphy law is! its a common misconception by people outside the physics community. murphy's law states that anything that can happen will or has a tendency  to happen. although often thought of in a negative connotation the real definition has no such intention.

This is my personal favorite mistake: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CoLFf6BtlI That was Mad Max 2 and the stunt shown nearly killed the stuntman who performed it. However, it looked so good the director kept it in and only slowed it down a bit for added effect. That same stuntman soldiered through the broken ribs he sustained and went on to do several other really dangerous stunts before the movie's end. That, ladies and gentlemen, is why real actors on real sets with real props will always be better than even the best CGI.
