A site all geeks can be proud of: It’s Insultingly Stupid Movie Physics. There are reviews. And look: it’s The Worst Physics Movie Ever Made: The Core (2003). One might argue that they took it too seriously; most critics emphasized the film’s self-awareness of its own preposterousness, but then that’s most of the fun of being a geek. And they do have a category for movies that obviously are not intended to be taken seriously as science, like Spider-Man. Which reminds me—don’t miss their Matrix reviews (“there’s more romance in a chemistry set than between Trinity and Neo”), which, after an amusing attempt to take them seriously, consign the movies to scientific irrelevance.
