Once you get your eye to recognize the things the editor in charge of continuity missed, your media watching will never be the same.

Start off easy - look for the "Magic Rearview Mirror"

Shots of the characters taken from inside a vehicle show the rearview mirror, shots in the same sequence taken as a view through the windshield - oops no mirror, sometimes not even a left-over spot of stick'm where it was glued on.
That is even MORE annoying on "reality TV" where the cameraman is filming "spontaneous" events. How did he get on the other side of the door before one of the event participants?

And while looking for things the gafferscript supervisor missed, look for things like the position of a tie, or even alternating shots with and without a jacket. Films are often not filmed in sequence, which can lead to these technical "gaffs". After you are aware of them, they are indeed annoying. Sometimes gaffs are intentionally place in films as "inside jokes" and there are websites devoted to them. Once you see them, you cannot "unsee them".

One of these is where to find the tennis shoe and the potato in the asteroid field in the "Star Wars - Return of the Jedi" movie: http://scifi.stackexchange.com/quest...rn-of-the-jedi

Pixar films often have such "easter eggs" in them as well. Once seen, you cannot unsee them.
