Flicks in Pieces: Cinemanachronisms 

Pin It

Flicks in Pieces is a regular feature devoted not to whole movies, but to the individual parts of them that we love and hate.

If you're a movie-goer of a certain age, it has undoubtedly happened to you: You're watching a movie set in a specific year, and you see something -- or hear a song -- that didn't exist in that year. Like Forrest Gump reading Apple Computers letterhead dated 1975, when the company didn't exist until 1977. And suddenly, the fragile illusion is shattered

What cinematic anachronisms have most aggravated, frustrated or maybe just amused you?
