    It just annoys me.

    Of recent memory...the "waterfall" scene in the latest Raiders' movie, the nuclear explosion scene, and finally the jungle, vine-swinging sequence/scene in that movie.

    Well, the last Indiana Jones movies was one of the worst I've seen in a while.

    We actually turned Shark Attack 3: Megalodon into a drinking game back in college. I recall not really being able to stand after it was through.

    Re: Dumbest Scene Ever in a Movie

    It wasn't a scene in a movie, but rather a hit show, 24 - and is the reason I don't watch that show today.

    In an embarrassing lack of total knowledge of physics, rocketry and basic science, the 4th season is finalized by a ICBM launched from Iowa traveling "500mph" towards LA.

    The show brags about all these insider connections giving terrorist scenarios that could happen, but obviously no one advises the show who has ever been around a rocket, a missile, a Nuclear tipped warhead or anything involving the Missile Defense program.

    A Rocket going "500mph" wouldn't even get out of Iowa - Heck a nuke tipped rocket going 5000mph might just barely get out of Iowa. And that they played out the show for several hours while it was coming was even more embarrassing. One phone call to anyone ever affiliated with Nukes, Bombs, Rockets or Missiles would have cleared that up in 30 seconds. Otherwise it's just embarrassing and awful writing. "Uh well it's 1500 miles between Iowa and LA and we need it to last for three shows so lets make it go 500mph".

    Yeah I'm not bitter.

    Any movie/show where a person is shot with a handgun and goes flying 20 feet backwards through a window.

    Drives me bonkers for the same reason. Stupid physics!

    That was very reminiscent of the SFX from "Land of The Lost." It would have been funny to throw in an old clip of Marshall, Will and Holly in their raft, going over the falls into the shark's mouth.

    It was Discovery Channel or History Channel (can't remember which) that did a show on inaccuracies in special effects on tv and movies. That was one thing they spent a lot of time on, what a body actually does when shot. They had cops and military people who had enough experience shooting people to actually describe what someone does when shot by different weapons. Even a powerful handgun won't knock you backwards like that. You're more likely to just fall straight down or maybe back onto your butt. They also did some experiments firing different weapons into 200 lb hunks of beef and the beef hardly even moved, even when shot with a .45 at close range.

    Yep.

    The gunpowder is burning and creating pressure as the volume of gas inside the cartridge expands. That rapid expansion both propells the bullet forward and the gun backwards (aka recoil or "kick"). Since there's only one way for that gas to escape the bullet goes forward along with most of the energy. Some, however, exerts force backwards.

    There will be some inertia (not sure if that's the right term) as the energy of the bullet is transfered into the target while it rapidly decelerates. That's the force that may cause the other person to fall backwards. And that energy transfered to a body can not exceed the amount originally imposed on the bullet (in fact, the energy will decrease as the bullet slows due to gravity, friction, etc).

    But to generate the kinds of force to achieve hollywood dramatic body launching at the bullet impact/deceleration stage would require so much energy back at the gas expansion stage (i.e firing the gun) that the shooter would also fly backwards at nearly the same rate as the death-dealing bad guy who just met his maker.

    Very few movies portray firearms accuratly, which is a shame, as most people form opinions about them based on what they see on the big screen. Die Hard II referenced a Glock handgun that "couldn't be detected by metal detectors". Problem is there is no such thing. Yet, the myth continues.

    I suppose it's like a doctor watching a medical drama and cringing at all the mistakes.

    Fortunatley, I'm usually in the mood for big explosions and car chases so it's all good.

    Re: Dumbest Scene Ever in a Movie

    A couple of weeks ago I was forced to watch The Ruins. The scenes with the flowers--the ones where the flowers imitate a cell phone and mock the idiot college kids (although I admit all of us were doing the same) were among the dumbest I've ever seen. Is it possible that this was intended to be a comedy?

    Yeah -- Law & Order became significantly less entertaining when I actually started working in criminal law.
