However, nothing goes unnoticed by observant viewers who pay attention to detail.
2. Back to the Future
During his parents’ prom in 1955, the main character performs with a Gibson ES-345 guitar, which was created in 1958. Even time travel cannot explain how Marty acquired this guitar 3 years before its release.

7. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
The majority of the characters in the movie wear anti-reflective lenses, which were not commonly used until the 1980s, and the quality of the coatings was subpar at the time. As a result, it would have been impossible for Sharon Tate to have worn glasses with this type of coating in 1969.

In the movie, Natalie Portman’s character, Anne Boleyn, is shown wearing various French headdresses popular in 16th-century England, replacing traditional English headdresses.

Although most viewers may have missed the mistake, fashion historians were not pleased.
14. Moulin Rouge!
During a particular scene, the thin straps of Nicole Kidman’s dress are briefly replaced by wider straps for a few seconds.
Vampires in the Twilight universe only get scars when other vampires bite them. That’s why tattooing vampires seems impossible since their skin will heal from any needle that can penetrate it.
