Directors who don’t care


I used to think I was the only one who watched films and then smacked my forehead while saying "hey, that's not even CLOSE to being right – why don't they ever ASK somebody"!  It turns out that I'm not the only one.  Ok, so Neil deGrasse Tyson is an uber-geek, but still, I feel I'm in good company. Besides, he's a pretty funny guy. Here are his comments on film:

The most annoying part about this for me is when directors make simple mistakes.  I'm willing to gloss over (usually without even a comment to those around me) errors which are really specialized and would only be recognized by a small select group.  However, I find it hard to sit still when the employment of a grade-school level advisor would have markedly improved the accuracy of the film.
