Physics laws that Hollywood ignores

Neatorama has a list of 9 laws of physics that are routinely ignored by producers of motion pictures. Among the conveniently forgotten concepts: bullets don't spark when they hit metal, cars don't usually explode and sound doesn't move at the speed of light.

This article has inspired me to make all my future movies adhere to physical principles. Which will probably significantly drop the number of people who will want to watch them, but hey you gotta stick to principles...

Whoa, that's fascinating! Gotta love it. It would definitely be interesting to try to make a Star Wars movie without the possibility of shouting in space. If anyone doesn't want to watch a movie because of thunder sounding after instead of during the lightning strike, though, they have issues :-)
