10 most scientifically inaccurate movies

    While I can't imagine why anyone would entrust Hollywood to accurately present science, this was a I fun little list.


    Independence Day
    Starship Troopers
    The Day After Tomorrow
    The Core
    The Matrix
    Jurassic Park
    Total Recall
    Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

    I've seen 'em all. "The Core" probably edges out "Armageddon" as the most absurd of that list -- but I'll still stop and watch it every time I see it on TV.

    You mean "10 most scientifically inaccurate movies that aren't Star Trek"?

    That's going to require more thinking than I'm capable of.

    You left out the Back to the Future trilogy?

    I've always thought The Little Mermaid was a bit far fetched. I mean talking crabs, c'mon.

    I agree with Armageddon at the top. I am all for suspending my disbelief and am willing to belief they can blow up a huge asteroid with a nuke, but the scenes of successfully landing space shuttles on a rocky planet were laughable.

    ET was total bullshit. Bicycles can't fly.

    What was the name of the asteroid movie with Tea Leoni and Morgan Freeman? That has to be on there too.

    Star Wars was total bullshit too.

    It said "A Long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." Yet everything looks futuristic.

    Total bullshit.

    Come on... they wore robes and lived in earthen buildings!
