- much of the "science" in Crichton-based movies is actually, at best, superficially plausable handwaving.
- statistics handling in movies in general is kinda painful, with crucial misuse of basic terms and principles.
- the movie of I. Robot is crrrrrap!
- if you really want scientifically plausible s.f. movies and television, then Firefly/Serentity is spot-on, both in technology and plotting that comes from actual adult concerns with ambiguous and untidy endings.
