    Sometimes you just need to put the real world aside and just enjoy a movie and not care if it meets all the perameters of reality, like Star Trek saying it's in a Utopian Future as we know that will never happen. Also if you were watching a movie with say 90% of it in outer space with no sound that would be boring as hell.

    Just a quick comment in defense of the matrix. I believe they did address in the film that the robots liquify the dead to feed to the living. So they would have to farm humans one way or another if they were to burn the food to generate more electricity. The science is still bogus though, just saying.

  • Grafight23
    Grafight23 Год назад

    Artificial gravity inside spaceships. The ship is not spinning, yet the people stand and walk as they would on Earth. This "gravity effect" would require enormous power and serves no practical purpose. Often there are explosions in shows and movies, where debris falls on people, so why not just turn the gravity off and easily move fallen objects? Also a common trope is a ship loosing all power, or requiring to turn off a system to power another, more vital function. Sometimes they board an abandoned ship (big or small) floating in space with no power at all left. Yet the artificial gravity never goes off. It's bogus and stupid.

    You forgot "Pacific Rim"- They use (I think) 6 helicopters to carry a Jaeger to the fight but then a few minutes later you see the Jaeger swing a tanker ship like it was a baseball bat. There is no way that 6 helicopters could even carry a tanker ship let alone something big enough to swing one around!

    The original idea for humans in the matrix was that human brains were used as computer processors . It had to be changed due to low computer knowledge by the public on computers on 1999 , so make them batteries would be more undertadudable

  • Crissyfox Does Stuff
    Crissyfox Does Stuff 2 года назад

    For the matrix the wachowski's didn't originally plan for the machines to use the humans as batteries. The original reason for keeping the humans in the matrix was to use them to expand the processing power of the machines. There is a quote from them about that somewhere but i cant seem to find it.

    Star Wars has no relationship to science of any kind. Take Starkiller Base in The Force Awakens, it's just a giant middle finger to any scientific explanation. A planet that drains the energy of a star to fire beams of energy, faster than light, that can be witnessed from the ground... wtf??? Ya, this has nothing to do with science.

    When I first saw it, I had the same thought with The Martian. The air on Mars is so thin that you could have hurricane force winds and the most you would feel is a stiff breeze. You would be in greater danger from the blowing sand tearing a hole in your suit since Martian sand is a coarser and sharper then sand here on earth since it's never been eroded. I did however enjoy the movie despite that (Except for that guy who came up with the slingshot idea for the returning vehicle. He was just a nerd stereotype. "Hey! This guy is a nerd! Let's have him be strange.).

    Interestingly, the original concept in the Matrix was that the Humans brains were being used as parts in a massive neural network. The studio management felt that idea was too complex for audiences to understand so it was changed to being batteries.

    "The drama of such movies as Star Wars would be so damaged by a scientifically-accurate soundtrack that rule-bending seems justified"
    Hopefully, that will clear up that nitpick! :D

      +Bikram Shah, ok, I see you're saying. Still, the ideas spread in "serious" science fiction (for example) comes with a premise and a world in itself (with laws, usually broken in continuity issues seen in review videos).
      I guess the point is if it passes by the viewer's logic, if they could imagine themselves in that situation (no for Ghostbusters, yes for Zombieland?). In Naziland: Yes for Schindler's list, no for Inglorious Basterds. Plausibility I´d say. :D

    • JaGuaR
      JaGuaR 2 года назад

      +Helgali yeah the tone and mood setting of the movies can be serious and light subject matter, i can see the difference, no problem there, but not a single one of those movies claim it to be scientifically true, be it ghosts, space facts, time travel, genocide by machines, historical facts, etc etc. Everything Hollywood spits out is for the sake of entertainment to make money, it's a industry not an social awareness establishment. For example no matter how serious pearl harbor movie was, two good looking pilot didn't win the war that way, of how serious the sinking of titanic was in the movie no it wasn't about a diamond or a love story. I must sound like a broken radio saying the same thing but once again they are for the sake of entertainment, they are under "science fiction" genera, they do not represent scientific facts and they do not claim to represent it either.

    • Helgali
      Helgali 2 года назад +1

      Ok, let me say it in another way: movies like Evolution and Mars attack! are clearly making fun of it and don't expect to be taken seriously. Gravity, Interestelar, do.
      With animals: serious - Free Willy, Lassie, Marly and me. Not serious - Madagascar.
      With ghosts: Serious - Ghost, The others. Not serious: Ghostbusters, Casper.
