Eight Movies and Their Wrong Science

STAT staff comments on eight movies that really got the science wrong.  The movies are:

Jurassic Park (1993)
Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)
Outbreak (1995)
Rampage ( 2018)
Skyfall (2012)
Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959)
Contagion (2011)
Prometheus (2012)

Each review includes the talent in the film, the IMDb plot summary, and an expert fact-check.

A lagniappe is also included, an interview with Bill Gates on television programs and moves about terrorism.

Here is the article.

I haven't checked Rotten Tomatoes for their rating of at least some of these films so a compare and contrast might be an interesting thing to do.
