Most movie fans watch movies hoping for the best. We don’t want to see something bad, we want to be transported to another place and entertained for two hours so, even with a bad movie, we’ll try to find something good in it. On the flip side, if you watch a movie looking for the negative, you’re going to find it.
The gang who frequent MovieMistakes.com do just that. They watch movies and look for mistakes. Mistakes in the costumes, editing, production design, basically anything in the mise en scene that a director or editor missed. They then file those in an impressive database and with 2011 coming to a close, they’ve posted their Best Of lists.
