Sunshine A computer that has mastered the staggering complexities of accurate language parsing is unable to guide a ship in a straight line from the earth to the sun without the aid of a team of humans who cannot perform the simplest of tasks without killing themselves, each other or damaging the spacecraft.

Sunshine If you can't get real astronauts to volunteer for a suicide mission, get seven people from a psychiatric ward who think they are astronauts and tell them that Lord Xenu is waiting for them inside the sun. (0) Comments
Gravity When you are in zero gravity and you are holding a rope connected to a space station (which means you are moving at the same velocity as the station) and you let go of the rope, you will accelerate away from the station. It's called the Clooney Effect. (5) Comments
No no, I am not talking about the centrifugal force due to the orbiting around the Earth. This is due to the space object spinning around itself. Just like the Earth going around the Sun in addition to having a spin. We are not thrown into the space due to the centrifugal force of Earth's spin because gravity keeps everything in place. Space station's gravity is negligible compared to the effects of its spin. Hence Clooney is thrown outwards.
Centrifugal force don't apply here. Inertia maintained when you travel with the same speed and direction as the object you were connencted to in frictionless space. The space station and the astronauts were beyond perigee in an orbit wich means they were not affected by rotary forces of the planet. The ellepsis orbit comes from earth gravity but since there is neglectable friction in space you could only drift away by creating your own momentum.
I'm no physicist but I think that could still happen due to radial velocity. If the space station is continuing to move in an arc around the planet, and you let go, then you're left moving in a straight line.
Not sure what Logan's weight has to do with it but as I stated before Wolverine has no super-strength and so it was quite "Riddickulous" to see him pull that stunt. Not to mention that he also seems to have lost his hyper-senses of smell and hearing wich adds to his constant surprise looks in the movie.
Air Force One How to hijack Air Force One in four easy steps: 1. "Hi, we have reservations on this plane." 2. "And you are?" 3. "We are journalists. See, we have cameras." 4. "Alrighty then! Let me show you to your seats." (0) Comments
Star Wars: A New Hope When Vader orders you to tear the ship apart to find an inanimate data recording, it makes perfect sense to say "Don't destroy that escape craft, there's no life aboard. It's probably just a short circuit." (0) Comments
Contraband If you ever suspect that someone is holding your wife hostage and you can't get there for a couple of days, call the guy up on a cellphone and let him know that you are going to kill him. This will keep things calm until you get there. (0) Comments
Contraband When you go to make a deal with a gang boss at his headquarters, leave the bag with the $10,000,000 in your van. I mean if you can't trust 20 armed gangbangers, who can you trust? (0) Comments
Negotiator, The There is chance that when crashing through a window to catch a kidnapper he may hold a gun to the hostage's head and force you to surrender. Wait a minute, that is exactly what will happen. (0) Comments
