15 Huge Mistakes In 'Titanic' That We Never Noticed

Entertainment | By Charlie Blacks II | December 16, 2017

To this very day, Titanic is still one of the biggest, greatest, and impactful movies made. The film shaped the movie-going experience for an entire generation with its new-aged graphics, movie effects, and storytelling ability. You'd think it would be impossible to sit through a three-hour movie about a boat that sinks but, the way the movie was formatted it was compelling and kept us begging for more. Not to mention that the film was based on a true story. Well, despite how impactful and amazing the movie was, it also featured a plethora of mistakes that went right over our heads and now we're here to expose those mistakes. Without further ado, check out them out for yourself.

Camera Reflection

Honestly, we really don't understand how someone hasn't found a solution for camera/cameraman reflections in film. This is usually the easiest movie mistake to spot in any film and Titanic definitely wasn't the exception to this easily looked over mistake.

The Magical Lifejacket

In one of the most crucial scenes in the entire movie when the front end of the ship was slowly sinking, a man was holding on for dear life to the front end of the boat and yet in the next couple of frames he appears in a lifejacket. Either he had magic powers or someone clearly wasn't paying attention to detail.

Rose & The Ax

Personally, we wouldn't want our significant other swinging an ax anywhere near us but, desperate times call for desperate measures and Rose did what she had to do in order to free Jack. Except, in reality, Rose probably would have cut Jack's wrist with her wild swing resulting in a cut artery leaving him at the scene to bleed to death but then what kind of movie would that be?

Railing Gap

Today's large cruise ships and boats are very particular about the railing and protective barriers of their ships because they don't want anyone to end falling overboard which is probably why the working crew on the Titanic thought it might be a good idea to tighten up a few railing gaps while in the midst of their journey... Yeah, right.

Titanic Pipes

Maybe the prop crew hired for this film think people wouldn't notice the major changes in the ship's manufacturing but, little did they know that people live to find mistakes in major motion pictures. You'd think there would be more attention to detail on the ship itself being that the movie is about, you know... the ship sinking and all.

Visible Wires

For those of us in the know about the basics of movie magic, we all know that wires are used to create some great visual effects but, at no point should the wires ever end up on screen like they did in this scene when passengers were falling into the lower deck.

The Beauty Mark

We've always wondered why people in makeup on the set of these huge productions don't keep a list or photos of particular details so, that mistakes like this don't get caught on camera like it did when young Rose's beauty mark switched sides on her face.

Reappearing Glass

When Rose runs to go get the ax in order to save Jack, she breaks the glass rather well initially but, later more glass reappears as she's reaching to free the ax. This happened as a result of shooting a multitude of takes and pasting them together in post-production.

Metal Capstan Is Actually...

We don't know about you but, if we were on a large cruise ship and found out that some parts of the ship were made out of foam, we'd instantly call 911. Obviously, Titanic was just a movie but, they should have caught the wrinkles in the capstan in this scene and fixed it.

Coat Check

For some reason, moviemakers think that the extras in the background of a particular scene don't matter but, in reality, they really do. For instance, in this scene when Jack and Rose are having a conversation on the upper deck the gentlemen's coat's length and color changes as he walks past.

The Magic Pillow

You'd think that the prop and scene crew would be very particular and on point during every take but, apparently, the crew had some sloppy moments as the water began to fill the ship and a pillow appeared on the bed in the background before Jack could fully turnaround.

Ship Details

In what might be one of the most suspenseful scenes in the movie as the ship breaks in half, the graphics team thought it would be a good idea to leave out some key details on the frontend of the boat as it slowly sunk. That's kind of lazy if you ask us.


Whoever caught this movie mistake has some of the best eyes in existence and is detail-oriented AF. We're not exactly sure how this happened but the shadow cast made that person's hat a lot larger than the actual hat itself.

Material Gripped Or Not

First and foremost, we'd like to acknowledge that Rose was a dumbass for standing on the outside of the railing on a humongous ship that wouldn't notice her if she fell or not also, in different parts of the scene she can be seen gripping material of her dress along with the rail as well as without it.

Disappearing Suspenders

Wardrobe should always be on point especially when it comes to films that have budgets the size of Titanic's but, apparently, that too was flubbed during the making of the film as Jack's suspenders disappear mid-scene.

Hey, even the best movies make mistakes.

Did You Know...


In the US, the average spent on an engagement ring is $6,351 but how do these figures compare with our favorite celebrities? The answer: they don't. As the diamonds increase in size, obviously the price tag appreciates handsomely. Well, we've compiled a list of some of the most expensive celebrity engagement rings.


This list would be nothing without Kim Kardashian's rock from Kanye, which clocked in at around a cool $4 million when he presented it to her at his stadium proposal in October 2013. Unfortunately, though, the 15-carat sparkler was among the jewelry stolen during Kim's infamous Paris robbery in 2016.


Jennifer Lopez's husband Alex Rodriguez popped the question to the singer, and he really had to step it up to outshine her previous engagement rings—and wow, did he deliver. The baseball star proposed with a reported 15-20 carat emerald cut stunner set on a platinum band that was estimated at $5 million. It's getting harder and harder not to be fooled by the rocks she's got...


It should come as no surprise that Beyonce herself totes one of the world's highest-valued diamonds. Weighing in at 24 carats, Jay reportedly paid around $5 million (now worth $6,047,013) for Bey's flashy emerald-cut ring back in 2008.


Anna Kournikova's relationship Latin music artist Enrique Iglesias since the early '00s has been one of the most lowkey celebrity relationships to date. That is with the exception of her $5,400,000 engagement ring that made headlines in 2004. Now, worth a whopping $7,443,596, the giant yellow stunner was spotted on Kournikova even during her tennis matches. (Pssst! It's rumored she got two rings from Iglesias. Prior to this, she sported an equally giant pink pear-shaped ring.)


Clocking in as the most expensive celebrity engagement ring, Mariah Carey's 35-carat bling from ex-fiancé James Packer reportedly cost a cool $10 million. And the "Obsessed" singer seemed to be a bit, well, obsessed with the jewel. She continued to wear the ring over a year post-breakup, and didn't part ways with the bauble until May 2018, selling it to a Los Angeles jeweler for $2.1 million.
