Insultingly Stupid Movie Physics

Surfing about the German c't-magazine's web site I found a link to a site about movie physics being so dramatically wrong it is almost insulting for the audience.

Go have a look for yourself (the site is in English). They first offer some common mistakes that are shown in virtually any action movie and an explanation what is wrong with what Hollywood's film makers present us. After that they have a long list of movies they "reviewed" in respect to physical correctness.

I really had to hold on to my chair reading some passages. Great fun and you may eventually even learn something new (as did I; see the section about throwing lit cigarettes into puddles of gasoline.)
