Sphere, The - No Reflection
During the scene where Dustin Hoffman is going to rescue Samuel L. Jackson after he is seen going into the sphere,Hoffman is approaching the sphere and you can see the reflection of the sphere on the shiny floor of the spacecraft. In the next shot a closer view of Hoffman, and the sphere has no reflection in the floor, another distant shot shows the reflection again. Seems like a case of simple bad editing.

Seeing as how the sphere was computer animated, it seems like they wouldn't "accidentally" add reflections, since you need to create a reflection map to do so, it stands to reason that any reflections or lack thereof are intentional.

First of all the movie is Sphere not the Sphere, and seccond of all, sphere chooses what it does and doesn't want reflecteded, depending on what's going on. (read the book for the explanation on why it is Sphere and not the Sphere

Speaking of reflections... If you pay very, very close attention to all the computer screens and stuff when the crew FIRST talks to Jerry/Harry, the camera moves down to show Nick's face in the computer screen... Look behind Nick in the screen and you can see the camera and the cameraman.

One slip up i noticed the first time i saw this movie is the reflection of the computer screen. Norman and Beth have just entered the spacecraft and found the cockpit. They then find the on-board flight data computer. If you look, you can read the reflection of the computer in the glass window on the helmets they are wearing (It should be mirrored. This does not make sense because they are reading the screen at the time, therefore the reflection of the writing in their helmets would be mirrored.
