The Academy of Motion Pictures awards innovations in science and technology as they relate to motion pictures.
I remember when Who Framed Roger Rabbit came out - the technology of integrating animation with real actors was cutting edge. The moves in The Matrix was cool tech that was copied quite a bit after the movie came out. And I'll never forget the lights and music in Close Encounters.
What movies have you seen in which you found the science and/or technology to be particularly interesting, really cool, cheesy, or just plain wrong?
I appreciate how y the Science movies are made, there is too much home work, besides the normal routine work the Director has to see the Scienc easpect as well,but many movies have made lot of mistakes which are never highlighted.
The baddie in the 2002 James Bond film Die Another Day’s bad guy has “gene therapy” to replace his DNA and change his appearance. All through Science Books i have read you can n t change the DNA . It’s in all your cells and is what makes u you. It is considerably more ridiculous than h
having a brain transplant, which is very ridiculous indeed.
Here are some science in movie links:
Also, I have a book that delves into the science of movies. For example, it explains what would really happen if the enormous spaceship in Independence Day hovered over a city. I cannot remember the name of the book and I do not have it handy, but when I do, I'll post the name.
I enjoy the technology in War Horse. The technology that was used to illustrate "No Man's Land" was believable. I have also been interested the stage play of War Horse--they used large puppets (like in The Lion King stage play) for the horses. I am also interested in how they re-created the bombings and gunfire.
