Fk I completely disagree with you. A lot of hollywood movies are not creative but that`s not because they dont follow the constraints of real world physics. I dont even think this blog is about making movies more realistic, it`s just for fun. Movies are supposed to be exercises in escapism. Sometimes you need a brainless action flick in which people can fly from tree top to tree top or jump from building to building. It would be boring to watch a space battle with no sound for the explosions. It would be boring if at the end of a car chase the car didnt blow up. Hollywood makes it money by entertaining. The entertainment that sells the most is brainless.

All these apologist arguments are a crock (as they always are). Frankly, movies should be (and certainly can be) just as entertaining, but WITHIN the constraints of real history, real physics, and so on. THAT`S the real trick and talent. It`s easy and brainless to just make stuff up left and right...which is exactly why Hollywood has made it a specialty (and of course brainwashed some people that it`s the "only way", in the bargain).

Terminator got a Pretty Good Physics rating? I`m building my naked time transport machine RIGHT NOW.

I disagree with the author of this article. If we wanted to see real life on our movie screens, we wouldnt bother. why pay £8 to watch something you can go to any major city and see for free?

you wanna see car chases? goto the lozelles area of birmingham, yoo`ll probably also see some gang shooting while your there.

WE want to see stuff that you cant see everyday in movies, thats why hollywood exagerate a lot of things.

There`s a difference between not using realistic physics, and not knowing about them. If I were to make a film I`d have as many exploding barrels and cars as I want, even though I know it doesn`t really happen.

While I`m on this rant I might as well point out that films set in the past do not have to be completely historically accurate, unlike some historians seem to think so.

b bobbin, the author understands that. He is only pointing out the fact that most people in Hollywood didn`t go to college.

I think this was a brilliant post. The author gave very good explanations for why something that happened in a movie cannot happen in real life.

Do these people not realise that films are supposed to be entertainment, and don`t have to abide by the laws of physics?

I hate to be one of the ones to keep an argument going but...how can you not see the addis one is fake?

The whole picture looks water-marked, but the tag looks completely normal...And I`m pretty sure that wouldn`t get by the editors.

This may be super-nerdy but it`s still great stuff. Very good points & explanations (unlike a lot of these "xx sucks in the movies because...).

Meh...it seems fake to me. I`m sure that could be easily made to look real by someone with skills.

These poor people can`t watch a movie without it being torture. Johnny Depp`s adidas tag was funny, though.
