“The Avengers” has more mistakes than any other movie this year

The most mistake-filled movie of 2012 has been revealed, and the revelation might surprise you. MovieMistakes.com has counted a grand total of 15 errors in “The Avengers,” meaning Joss Whedon didn’t do so great in the editing room.

Of course, in the grand scheme of things, that’s really not that many. The website lists the top three most flaw-riddled movies of all time are “Apocalypse Now” with 395 mistakes, “Superman IV: The Quest for Peace” with 336 mistakes and “The Wizard of Oz” with 309 mistakes. Against those, 15 doesn’t seem worth our effort.

Then again, maybe those films have so many mistakes listed because they’ve been out for a while and fans have had the opportunity to pick over them. In five years, maybe fans will have spotted a lot more in Marvel’s ensemble superhero flick. Most of the errors reported for “The Avengers” are continuity ones, like Thor having a bloody nose in one shot and the blood being smudged in the next, or Bruce Banner rolling up his jacket in one scene but having it draped over his arm immediately after. That can be accounted to sloppy editing more than anything else.

Some of the issues are more glaring than others. In the scene where Bruce Banner first meets Natasha Romanoff, she can be heard talking in the film but her face in a mirrored reflection isn’t moving. In the end credits, video game company Namco Bandai is misspelled as “Nameco Bandai.” Twice.

Interestingly enough, it’s the second highest grossing movie of 2012 that has the second highest amount of mistakes. MovieMistakes.com counts 13 errors in “The Hunger Games,” with all but two of them being continuity mistakes.

Millennial Wisdom

Charles Speaks For Us All

Get to know Charles, the social media whiz of Brockmire.

Posted by on

He may be an unlikely radio producer Brockmire, but Charles is #1 when it comes to delivering quips that tie a nice little bow on the absurdity of any given situation.

Charles also perfectly captures the jaded outlook of Millennials. Or at least Millennials as mythologized by marketers and news idiots. You know who you are.

Played superbly by Tyrel Jackson Williams, Charles’s quippy nuggets target just about any subject matter, from entry-level jobs in social media (“I plan on getting some experience here, then moving to New York to finally start my life.”) to the ramifications of fictional celebrity hookups (“Drake and Taylor Swift are dating! Albums y’all!”). But where he really nails the whole Millennial POV thing is when he comments on America’s second favorite past-time after type II diabetes: baseball.

Here are a few pearls.

On Baseball’s Lasting Cultural Relevance

“Baseball’s one of those old-timey things you don’t need anymore. Like cursive. Or email.”

On The Dramatic Value Of Double-Headers

“The only thing dumber than playing two boring-ass baseball games in one day is putting a two-hour delay between the boring-ass games.”

On Sartorial Tradition

“Is dressing badly just a thing for baseball, because that would explain his jacket.”

On Baseball, In A Nutshell

“Baseball is a f-cked up sport, and I want you to know it.”


Learn more about Charles in the behind-the-scenes video below.

And if you were born before the late ’80s and want to know what the kids think about Baseball, watch Brockmire Wednesdays at 10P on IFC.

Crown Jules

Amanda Peet FTW on Brockmire

On Brockmire, Jules is the unexpected yin to Jim Brockmire’s yang. Which is saying a lot, because Brockmire’s yang is way out there. Played by Amanda Peet, Jules is hard-drinking, truth-spewing, baseball-loving…everything Brockmire is, and perhaps what he never expected to encounter in another human.

“We’re the same level of functional alcoholic.”


But Jules takes that commonality and transforms it into something special: a new beginning. A new beginning for failing minor league baseball team “The Frackers”, who suddenly about-face into a winning streak; and a new beginning for Brockmire, whose life gets a jumpstart when Jules lures him back to baseball. As for herself, her unexpected connection with Brockmire gives her own life a surprising and much needed goose.

“You’re a Goddamn Disaster and you’re starting To look good to me.”

This palpable dynamic adds depth and complexity to the narrative and pushes the series far beyond expected comedy. See for yourself in this behind-the-scenes video (and brace yourself for a unforgettable description of Brockmire’s genitals)…

Want more about Amanda Peet? She’s all over the place, and has even penned a recent self-reflective piece in the New York Times.

And of course you can watch the Jim-Jules relationship hysterically unfold in new episodes of Brockmire, every Wednesday at 10PM on IFC.
