20+ Movies Where the Crew Made a Silly Mistake
In psychology, there is a term called “inattentional blindness.” It describes the phenomenon of when we don’t notice things happening in front of us. This feature is used by illusionists in order to confuse viewers. Perhaps this is the same effect that works when we don’t see obvious mistakes in the frames of our favorite movies.
