The Most Egregious Science Mistakes In Movies This Year

Dave Mosher:

Sci-fi movies should bend the rules to impress audiences, but they can't play people for complete fools. Review the most science-distorting movies of 2012 in this gallery.

Nerds have a love-hate relationship with big-budget sci-fi movies. We admire how they take us on mind-bending journeys that'd otherwise prove impossible (or kill us). But we loathe them for torturing science to paint a sloppy portrait of how the universe works, instantly crushing our enjoyment of the movie.
Herewith, we bring you the year's most memorable cinematic offenses, ranging from excusable infractions to nerd-rage-inducing disregard for grade school-level science.

(Spoiler alert: Our complaints will betray the plots of these movies.) (Culture)

The Prometheus and Total Recall ones were pretty diabolical.
