We all know that science-fiction movies take a bit of liberty with the “science” part of that genre, but just how bad are they at breaking the laws we know to be true? Mostly pretty terrible, with favorites like Star Wars being the worst among them.
The only two films to pass the test here were based on real space missions, while all our fictionalized accounts exaggerate science in some way for dramatic effect. Some of my favorites I’ve never even thought about are that people don’t move in slow motion in zero G, which is something you always see, and that you can’t actually dodge lasers. I’ll forgive sound in space as that would make for a rather boring film most of the time.
