Star Wars Episode 6: Return of the Jedi - Looks Like the Lightsaber Blade Wasnt Screwed in Properly
(You have to watch this slipup in slow-mo; otherwise you wont see it!) Towards the end, when Vader and Luke are fighting, Luke does a summersault flip backwards on to a higher platform. Then, Vader throws his lightsaber at Luke. Just before the lightsaber crosses Luke's face and is about to exit the screen, you can actually see the blade, either: A) Bend a large amount up towards the roof, or B) Actually come out of the handle!

Little rule of thumb...if you have to slow down a scene to see a slipup...it wasn't really a slipup--movies are supposed to be watched at normal speed, & directors sometimes use tricks to make it look good--at NORMAL speed.

I noticed another slipup, just before that one. In the shot of Vader before the one where he throws his lightsaber, the blade looks bent.

OH NO! NOT THIS AGAIN! Lightsabres have a "dead man's switch". Force Sabres can be turned on and off at will. Lightsabres have locking buttons which allows them to stay on after being thrown. Force Sabres can be kept on by sheer will. Luke's was a regular lightsabre (Han could use it, after all). I don't know what Vader's was, but either way he could throw it.

Actually on some t.v.s anything that gets close to the edges of the screen gets distorted

There's actually a slip-up in the slip-up. If Vader throws his saber(maybe he doesn't even "throw" it-I haven't seen the movie for a while), Then wouldn't it go out? In TPM, whenever someone's lightsaber loses contact with it's owner's hand then it goes out. Take Maul, for example. Maybe I'm wrong, who knows? ;-)
