Jurassic Park - Talking to the PC
During the scene where the character played by Wayne Knight is talking via visi-phone over the PC to the boat captain at the docks, asking him to wait for a few more minutes, you can see the status bar under the live-link up moving across, indicating that he is watching a video, not talking via a live link up.

No filmmaker should ever assume their whole audience is ignorant about anything. Hopefully none of the Jurassic Park makers left that in for that reason.

wickkit, that is the whole point of this site...to point out mistakes in a movie or parts that should have been covered up. In the "story", Nedry is talking to the captain live, but on the set, he is viewing a prerecorded Quick Time movie. Now, it's likely that's how most films are done in similar circumstances, but, for the story's sake, they should have not shown the status bar. It ruins the illusion that Nedry is talking live. The crew probably never thought about it, and thus, it is a slip up.

Ah, fizZy72, I'd read this whole section again. Nedry is talking to the QT video and someone has added the sound in later.

Yeah, I saw this one as well, but didn't really consider it to be much of a biggie. I figured the producers assumed the general audience was computer illiterate enough to miss that one. Also, if I remember correctly, I think that video was running in Macintosh QuickTime, but I could be mistaken, as I haven't seen the movie in years.

It definatly is a Mac Quicktime movie. Another thing to watch out for is when the close up is on the computer, the guy on the dock turns to his left and looks up the dock. Cut to the next scene where we see Dennis taling about getting more time, and the image on the computer was replaying the same thing it was a second ago.

The movie is probaly a fake but could at the time be possible. With Apple Quicktime TV software the movie could have been real. Quicktime TV broudcaster to save disk space allowed a user to preset the ammmount of tiem on the movie they want to us.e Lets say 1min. That user could talk or reocrd for one minute then Quicktime would close the connection.

This is being a little picky don't you think? I mean sure it is a slip up, but who really cares if he's playing a video or if he's filming the scene while Nedry is ACTUALLY talking to the other actor?

Umm...although Nedry IS watching a Quicktime video, he actaully is talking to the guy in the video. Notice how the guy in the video has a PHONE?
