BBC on the hokey fake-science

BBC on the hokey fake-science that abounds in recent "sci-fi" movies. The midi-chlorians that generate the Force in Star Wars, the shared imaginary consciousness of The Matrix, all that sea cucumber stuff from Hulk (wow, am I ever glad I didn't see that movie): nerds everywhere are not impressed. Really, if you're going to say that in the universe in which your movie exists, there are spider-men or robot killing machines, then fine. It's best to just go with it and get on with your movie than trying to explain it through a tiresome study of repressed childhood rage and the mutability of sea cucumber tissue.
