Movies are difficult to get extremely perfect. There’s a lot that goes behind it and it’s more than the acting and the cast.
The direction, cinematography, lightening, action scenes and of course the story lines are extremely important too.
And one thing that is often taken for granted is the details which seem to be really small and unimportant but often catch the eyes of the audience and the fans.
Fans, on the other hand would never spare such mistakes which were not paid attention to by the film creators.
And these include some really big movies which have forgotten about these details.

Here are 15 movie details that were really not that small to ignore!

12. Inception
