It’s funny how these conversations occur. We’ll talk about the implausibility of something in a movie, yet ignore the fact that the movie is about a guy who got superpowers when he was bitten by a spider. I admit to doing this on occasion, but I think I have pretty good perspective because I don’t obsess about it. For me it’s usually something that I find amusing to nitpick. Like in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” I always wondered where Angel got his fancy clothes.

There’s a website out there devoted to bad movie physics, pointing out things like how the Hulk can’t technically gain mass and volume at the same time. Also things like how laser beams almost always show up even when there’s no smoke in the air. At a certain point this kind of nit-picking is way too nerdy and you need to lighten up a bit.
