Godzilla (2014) When in a quarantine zone, its fine to take off your gas mask if the Geiger counter reads zero. Ignoring the fact that zero itself is impossible to get in 2014, whats to say there are not other threats like deadly spores and toxins in the air. The masks themselves are to filter air, not keep out radiation anyway. (2) Comments
That was an incredible stupid scene indeed. Instead to check if your Geiger counter works, take off the mask and inhale deeply - everyone knows that radiation smells like strawberrys with a hint of mildew :P
AVP: Alien vs. Predator When you combined two R-Rated well known franchises, it's only logical to Fox to make it PG-13. On top of that, a movie about two alien species should take place on modern day earth. (1) Comments
Gravity There are fully working, operational empty space-stations just floating around up there, with no-body in them. They even left all the lights and computers on just in case someone drops by. (1) 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.
Hehe, yeah - Clooney is so suave, he can even create friction in space.
G.I. Joe Retaliation Since all the Joes from the first movie were dull and/or annoying, replace them all with different ones. It will sell more Hasbro toys . Same marketing strategy as the 1986 Transformers movie (but at least G1 had good memorable characters). (2) Comments
You mean the first four films aye? Don't forget this incredibly stupid DH4 where hackers "hack" gas lines and program them to blow up.
Thing, The Research scientists in the Antarctic WILL NOT want to EVER contact anyone about huge discoveries, until the radio equipment is destroyed by diabeetus. "Ahl keel yoouh!" The Norwegians also seemed to have similar rules. (Fuck the remake!) And, Norwegian scientists can't speak English, it's a job requirement. Also, assault rifles, high explosives etc. need to be on hand at the NORGE-base, but training on the use of these weapons is probably limited to a 14min reel by drunken Dutch instructors educated in poetry.

Elysium If you're going to tie a man with an exo suit down to perform data extraction, just use standard restrains. It's not like the exo suit will enhance his strength and be able to easily break free, right? (1) Comments
Incredibles, The When you have a flight license and didn't flown a plane for 15 years then it's a piece of cake to do so again with a way more advanced learjet. It's like riding a bycycle and no one will ask about it. (1) Comments
Originally the guy she calls on the phone about the plane was supposed to be the pilot, but in the end they decided to just have the mom fly the plane, to improve that scene and so they didn't have to deal with the logistics of an extra character in the film.
Collateral Jason Statham had to do a you-blink-and-you-miss kind of cameo in this movie. (1) Comments
