Sometimes I catch them myself, sometimes I read them at moviemistakes.com but there are SO many basic editing mistakes in very popular movies like continuity, revealing, visible crew\equipment etc... which gets me thinking, HOW does this happen to the best of the best? FRIENDS is one of the best TV series ever made. There are over 1000 mistakes - and BIG ones that I can't understand... isn't each episode edited professionally and checked by the editor and director and others before it's aired?
Season 8 Episode 2: Monica is sitting in the living room with all her wedding presents, waiting for Chandler to return. She begins to open a large parcel and reveals a brown cardboard box. Then the camera moves to Joey, and when it moves back, the parcel is wrapped up again. This happens about three times. http://www.moviemistakes.com/tv2651?viewall=yes
Three times in a row!!! (Yes, I noticed it myself while watching).
So what gives with Hollywood editing?
