Missing Brains?

Postby bengear » Sun Jul 03, 2011 10:09 am

If someone is going to be seeing the film again soon, keep an eye out for this.

Early in the movie when Brains and Wheelie bust loose and show up in the apartment Sam is talking to his girlfriend and is carrying Brains back to put him in lockup. After the closeups of Sam with Brains in his hands the camera goes to a wide shot (Sam is in the upper left-ish part of the screen if I recall). Look to see if they forgot to insert Brains in his hands while he's walking towards the balcony.

I swear I thought I noticed him missing in the first of two shots from that angle.

*I'm certainly not nitpicking or anything but I tend to notice these things - I totally enjoyed the movie*

Based on the topic title I thought this was going to be about all the people who say this movie sucks. Or possibly Megan Fox.

Whew! good thing you saw it too...thought I was dreaming it. Kind of sloppy editing though...seems like someone would have spotted that before it hit the theaters. :-(

Based on the topic title,I thought this was zombie thread & was mis-placed & had to be re-directed to the general thread section.

I got all scarred & started panicking a few zombies were on the loose & eating up some brains. and we were all doing brain counts to see if we were missing our brains or not.

Yeah I noticed that when I first saw it...I don't think it's forgetting, but rather Carly is the focus of that shot, and you would only see him for a few frames before Same walks behind Carly (or somehow obscures Brains), so they just didn't wanna waste the time rotoscoping, rendering, animating, etc. Can't blame them...I can only imagine how tedious it is editing every building in every shot of Chicago to be destroyed..
