Braveheart - Rubber Trees?
During the attack against the military post at the beginning of the movie in retaliation for Murrin's death, when he gets into the post and flips the archer over you can see that when he falls on the wall the logs bend completely. I think this totally ruins the moment because even though they show him impaled, you can obviously see the logs completely bend over when he falls on them. I really think they should have done a better job editing this.

I'm not so sure that was a mistake. As you might know, wood is fairly elastic. In fact, most rubber is made from wood extracts. Anyhow, when wood gets wet, it increases its elasticity, and in that scene, things do appear to be wet. It is my belief that those really were wood "spikes" and that they were simply bending due to the pressure of a heavy man falling on them.
