Braveheart - Blood on the Lens
During one of the big battle scenes (I think it's the first one, from memory), there is a spilt second where "blood" splatters on the camera.
This actually might be intentional, as it is a cool effect.

This scene was meant to be there. I read an interview with Mel Gibson where he says when he saw this shot, he liked it as it showed how brutal battles could be at this time, so he decided to use it in the finished cut.

I think it's intentional. An editor who spends hours looking at film, frame by frame, is not going to miss something that obvious.

I agree with Eddie because firstly, how could you get blood on the screen by accident. There is no where for it to squirt from. Having died in a film myself i know that blood isn't just sprayed about, it is controlled as best as it can be. Secondly it is too obvious to miss.

I don't think it is intentional, but more like unavoidable. That shot needed to be seen, but during the filming, it got blood splattered onto the lense. Once the editing was done, it was too late to reshoot another scene, so they just used the one with the blood.
