A little blast from the past, one of the few I've been able to resurrect from Jabootu.com hell.

Fave Movie Science Blunders

The old thread still works (I was able to bump it) but for convenience sake, it might be easier to continue the ocnversation here.

Enjoy! (Hopefully)

OK with me, the old discussion kind of got side-tracked.

Last night, I watched the MST3K version of Revenge Of The Creature and it had this error:
The "Gill Man" lived in a tributary of the Amazon river, FRESH water. Yet going by the fish in the tank he is placed in a SALT water enviorment, which should have killed him.

Thanks for the links ZW, used to love the old forum but never got around to registering for it. Last time I checked it seemed to be overrun with spam posts.

How come the bees in The Swarm didn't became a threat to human civilization until they crossed the Rio Grande? South and Central America seemed to be dealing with them ok up until then.

IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA!

Just how much human would it take to feed an octopus that size? I'm talkin' calories here...

If a pus grabbed a ship and got it slammed about like that, NO ONE would be running cross deck, let alone using the radio. Ever been on a city bus while it's moving?
Centrifical force has no favorites...

Oh, and BTW...the Marines have flame throwers too, ya know. Ya really needed to call the army, Admiral?

Not exactly a "science" error, but after the government officals went public with the giant ants in THEM!, did they ever have Fess Parker released from the loony bin?

Just watched 'War of the Satellites' this weekend. I love how movies present early spacecraft as being gigantic inside. I don't have a problem with futuristic craft like the Enterprise here but I forgot how much incredible amounts of fuel is required just to launch even a pound into orbit and you're launching this gigantic craft?
Watched some movie years ago about a kid who stowaways on an Apollo mission. Loved the part when one of the astronauts got up and walked across the capsule to a storage locker. I swear the thing was the size of a mobile home or small apartment inside.

Was that Stowaway to the Moon with Lloyd Bridges?

ZW: It may have been - you'd think I'd remember Bridges and Carridine but it's been decades since I've seen it. All I remember is the size of the interior of the capsule at which point I shrugged 'oh geeze' and switched the channel!
