Technonerds go to movies strictly for entertainment, and of course, the
most entertaining part comes after the movie when they can dissect,
criticize, and argue the merits of every detail. However, when supposedly
serious scenes totally disregard the laws of physics in blatantly obvious
ways it's enough to make us retch. The motion picture industry has failed
to police itself against the evils of bad physics. This page is provided as
a public service in hopes of improving this deplorable matter. The minds of
our children and their ability to master vectors are (shudder) at stake.
