4. Back to the Future
Remember when Marty traveled to 1955 to play a Gibson ES-345 and “create” Johnny B. Goode? Well, the Gibson ES-345 guitar wasn’t built until 1958. And that simple fact pulled us all out of the movie.
3. Indiana Jonas and the Last Crusade
This is actually a pretty big one. The movie takes place in 1938 and several Nazi officers are wearing WWII combat medals.
As much as we all appreciate a Scottish man juggling his man-bits about, Braveheart takes place in the 1290-somethings. Scots only started wearing kilts in the early 1700s.
1. Django Unchained
This movie takes place in the age of slavery, which was abolished in 1865. Sunglasses, as we all know, were only invented in 1925. So pretty much everyone would have looked at Jamie Foxx and have been all “brother, what alien technology doth thou wear on thine face?” I don’t care what anyone says, that’s how they spoke back then.
