Read. React. Repeat.

Exploding cars, shattered plate-glass windows, blazing bullets--you can't hardly make a major motion picture without these high-impact ingredients. Well, okay, maybe a chick flick, but most moviegoers want the most bang for their buck.

Too bad your intelligence is being insulted with every flash of a laser and deep-space explosion, as the Intuitor's Insultingly Stupid Movie Physics movie reviews and archive is only too happy to remind you.

I'm all for suspension of disbelief as a critical element in entertainment, but it does grate on me when silly things like the stuff ISMP points out regularly makes the cinematic rounds.
