Movie Bloopers You May Have Missed

Pirates of the Caribbean Captain Jack Sparrow had some interesting choices, and we often wondered what his big obsession with rum was all about, but one thing we didn’t think we could say about this crazy pirate was that he favored the Adidas brand. Because, judging from this movie shot, he does. As far as movie bloopers go, leaving the label on what is supposed to be period costume is probably not the best idea. We wonder who got fired for this whoopsie. Or if anyone spotted it before it went out to the masses? Spy Kids We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – recording films when there are mirrors around is a very bad idea. Oh, and door knobs, as was the case in The Matrix.

So is Bruce Springsteen.   And so is a certain ultra-slick Hawaiian troubadour -- someone much younger, and much shorter.  Prudential Center was packed full Tuesday night in anticipation of Bruno Mars' 24K Magic World Tour date, 15,000 fans prepped to party with an artist and backing band whose reputation for live performance has been crystallized on the world's grandest stage -- twice. 

As a songwriter, music has always been a spiritual thing for me. What amazes me is that it felt this way last night when thousands of complete strangers were moving in the same direction, at the same time to #brunomars rhythm. Music can touch people's soul in the deepest way, great music can connect them tog…
