Movie Science is a web site devoted to the intersection between
science and popular culture (with - no surprise - an emphasis on
movies). It's a discussion of scientific topics at the popular level,
in a fun context. (The profit bit is unlikely and not the point!)
Movie Science is a site for movie reviews and other articles about
popular culture written by “scientists" - practicing scientists,
academics in other fields, or just writers who are genuinely
knowledgable and enthusiastic about science. The reviews are normal
movie reviews that comment on the plot, characters and enjoyability of
a movie, but also include a comment on any scientific topics touched
on in the movie and whether they were believable or absurd. Movies are
rated for their overall quality as a movie and for their portrayal of
scientific subjects. Other articles address a variety of issues
related to treatment of scientific matters in media and popular
The site is designed to appeal to geeks and science fans who will
enjoy the discussions of science in a fun setting (and who will enjoy
some snark directed at egregious movie science) and for those who want
to use the site for its educational purposes, exploring scientific
content in an engaging and relatable context.
As such, it’s a site with a growing body of content that needs to be
sorted, searched for, displayed and read.
