Gladiator - Battle Slipups
There were at least four slip-ups I could spot in the Battle of Carthage (1st big fight in the arena in Rome).
1> When the German is pushed to the ground to avoid the chariot blade, there's no way he and maximus could make it in time between camera angles
2> When the fit bird gets chopped in half by the chariot blade, the camera angle switches from rear to front. Look real carefully (maybe run it slowly) and I reckon her legs start spurting before the blade gets there (rear view). Cool shot though!
3> When the chariot smacks into the wall below Caesar, it puts on a burst of speed between camera angles
4> This one is well obvious! After Crowe decapitates the two archers, and while he does his marching about, there's a shot where his sword is really shiny and clean, while before and after it's bloody. No freeze-frame needed for that.
This was a really cool movie - but I wonder why they didn't see the last one?

Actually, the ancient Romans most likely called it the Flavian Amphitheater after Flavius, the Caeser who ordered it's construction. The term 'Colosseum' wasn't used to describe it until around the year 1000 AD. And who gives a crap about anyone else's slang? The women's suffrage board is down the hall on the left.

Good slip-ups, but I have two things to say. It's not the "arena in Rome"; it's the Coliseum. And what's with "the fit bird"? Where are you from, still using slang like that. She's called a woman.
