      Nice list - almost identical to a list I saw on Cracked.com a few months back. I have to say some of these are actually more like easter eggs than overly obsessive little details added to films.

      Cracked.com is hilarious! 'The 40 Most Inappropriate Children's Book Covers' is just comedy gold.

      I'm pretty sure Neo doesn't get shot in the face in the 'construct' training sequence.

      @Hadouken76 He gets Smith's gun pointed right in his chops, but given that its only a training sequence, he doesn't actually get his head blown off. Would have brought things to an abrupt close...

      What's with the sudden rant about Chamber of Secrets? Has TF got bored with ranting about Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

      Oh and with the DH2 part, I think the room of requirement is a better scene to be placed on here. There is some brilliant attention to detail in there. Before it's set on fire anyway.

      I swear you nicked half of these from Cracked articles lol. Good list anyway.

      Surprised that Zodiac didn't make the list.. Fincher's attention to detail on that film almost made the entire cast give up acting.

      Hats off to everyone else that goes to cracked.com, firstly. TF, I think you really need to cut down your lists, you always struggle to fill them with legitimate examples! I don't think that the Danny Glover cameo, from Maverick, could be classed as an 'Insane Movie Detail'! Sure, it's a nice little in-joke/easter egg, but on par with some of these other examples? Nah.

      With TDKR, a few more little details: 1) The glasses on Alfred's table in Florence are identical to the glasses that Bruce and Earl toast with in "Batman Begins". 2) On Bruce's left arm, a crescent-shape scar is visible: this was inflicted by the Chechen's dogs at the start of "The Dark Knight".

      Some great ones mentioned, I also like the fact that James Cameron made all the Na'avi left handed in Avatar because he is, and how Gary Oldman travelled across the world searching for the perfect pair of glasses for Tinker Tailor. Oh, and Daniel Day-Lewis getting pneumonia filming Gangs of New York and then refusing treatment.

      What about the rat from the Abyss? Didn't they like "drown" it for real in that breathable liquid?

      where is Lars Von Trier's craziness? At least Nicol Kidman's Dogville experience deserve to be on this list

      Agree with 'apo1978', the scene where they genuinely put a rat in a breathable liquid from The Abyss should definitely be in this list.

      Marc96... he also broke a toe kicking a helmet in The Two Towers. That scream is genuine pain.

      Finchers attention to detail in panic room wasnt all it cracked up to be! in one scene the bad guys pump gas from an LPG bottle into the room and Foster lays down on the ground and breaths normally!.....Unfortunately LPG is denser than air and would have pooled on the floor where she was breathing!!!
