  • three to welcome to watch Mojo.

  • And today we'll be counting down our picks for the top 10 movies with broken physics.

  • Yeah, a hell of a mess, that is.

  • Hey, listen, I don't like it anymore than you dio for this list.

  • We'll be looking at films that ignored the laws of science for the sake of the plot.

  • Can you think of any films with broken physics?

  • Let us know in the comments.

  • Number 10.

  • The A team in the A team.

  • Our heroes survive a mid air plane explosion by parachuting out of the wreck in a tank.

  • They land safely by repeatedly firing tank rounds downwards into a lake to slow their fall, trying to shoot down that other drone.

  • No, they're trying to fly that tank.

  • Unfortunately for the A team, the firing force of a single tank round isn't greater than the force of a tank falling at high speeds.

  • They would have needed to fire around 90 rounds of ammunition, tow land safely, but the model tank they used typically holds 30 rounds.

  • Fired everything.

  • Come on, baby.

  • Yeah.

  • Since we don't see them reload often enough, it doesn't appear the team fired enough ammunition to slow themselves down for a soft landing.

  • If the A team obeyed the laws of physics, this mid movie tank stunt would have been the film's riel ending way to Berlin, asking for directions to Berlin.

  • And that's impossible.

  • Number nine transporter to hands up.

  • Stop moving or I will shoot you.

  • Don't you have home what to do?

  • Why don't you go into a typical day for Frank, Martin consists of driving fast cars, beating up goons and insulting the laws of physics.

  • When a bomb strapped to the underside of his Audi, he launches his vehicle off a ramp, spins it upside down and knocks the bomb off on the first try.

  • But his most implausible stunt was a jump between two buildings.

  • While running from the police, Martin drives his car through a concrete barrier and launches himself to an adjacent building without damaging his car.

  • The impact from the barrier would have slowed him down so much that the newly wrecked car would have plunged towards the ground.

  • Martin may be a good driver, but even he's not good enough to defy the laws of physics.

  • Not bad.

  • Did your mother ever teach you to say thank you.

  • Number eight Fast and Furious six.

  • After so many fast and furious films, franchise fans have accepted that are heroes can accomplish impossible feats with their cars.

  • You be careful.

  • This is who we are, but fast and furious six featured a scene so ridiculous that in interviews, even the movie's writer, Chris Morgan, has admitted it wasn't realistic.

  • At the film's climax, our heroes raced to rescue Mia Toretto from a speeding plane.

  • The hero spend around 13 minutes trying to keep up, according to the analysis of BBC's Ben Carter, who puts their average speed at 120 miles.

  • That means the runway would have to be around 26 miles long.

  • Since the world's longest runway is 3.5 miles long, the film's climax is definitely a stretch.

  • Number seven Superman Bad Vibrations.

  • Henry Cavill Superman was criticized for the collateral damage he caused while fighting zahd, but science makes it clear that Christopher Reeves version of the character was even mawr reckless.

  • When lowest dies in an earthquake, Superman goes back in time to save her.

  • He flies around the world so fast that the earth spins backwards and reverses time.

  • If Superman flew fast enough toe alter the world's rotation, he would generate extremely powerful winds.

  • These gusts could be strong enough to topple buildings, create dangerous weather conditions and jeopardize the innocent lives of people around the globe.

  • Audiences may accept that Superman can defy science and accomplish this feat.

  • But are they okay with all the damage?

  • His time traveling stunt would cause high.

  • Don't bother.

  • I think it's dead.

  • Sure, it's did number six Mission to Mars.

  • The saddest scene in Mission to Mars was arguably its most inaccurate.

  • Hey, listen, I don't like it anymore than you dio.

  • When an astronaut named Woody is separated from his wife Terri, in the vacuum of space, she uses exactly half of her jetpack fuel to accelerate towards him.

  • Terry!

  • No, Terry, Come back.

  • You'll never make it.

  • Terry, what are you doing?

  • I'll tell you what I'm not doing, Woody.

  • I'm not gonna watch you die.

  • Unfortunately, she doesn't get close enough.

  • Can you die?

  • I'm sorry.

  • Way.

  • What are you doing?

  • Would he removes his helmet and instantly freezes to death so Terry wouldn't use her remaining fuel to rescue him.

  • But as astronomer Phil plait has pointed out, since there's no friction in space slowing her down, she would have had to fire on equal amount of fuel to stop.

  • This means her jetpack would have been empty when she stopped.

  • To add insult to injury, would he would have suffocated before he froze.

  • Please, Terry, come back.

  • When you apply riel science to mission to Mars, the story becomes more tragic and impossible.

  • Number five Total recall.

  • By the end of total recall, corrupt Mars Governor Villas Co Hagan has one goal.

  • He wants to prevent hero Douglas Quaid from turning on a reactor that will produce constant oxygen for the people of Mars.

  • Once the reaction starts, it'll spread to all the Tra Binyamin.

  • The planet Mars will go into global meltdown.

  • That's why the aliens never turned it on.

  • It turns out he had a good reason.

  • While Earth's heiress 78% nitrogen, Mars has only 1% of nitrogen inside of its atmosphere.

  • This element helps prevent fires from burning, continuously, protects us from oxygen toxicity and helps make the sky blue.

  • As writer Maria Montalbano points out for medium, if you suddenly introduced a bunch of oxygen to Mars.

  • What you'd actually see is everyone getting sick as fires and explosions raged underneath a bland sky.

  • So while CO Hagen isn't the nicest guy, his evil actions were secretly keeping the citizens of Mars safe the entire time.

  • You're nothing.

  • You're nobody.

  • You're a stupid dream.

  • Number four Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull can't be good.

  • While watching Mutt swing on vines fast enough to keep up with Jeeps was absurd.

  • Indies fourth installment featured um, or problematic scientific scene.

  • Indy gets trapped on an atomic bomb testing site right before a nuke is detonated.

  • He protects himself by hiding inside a refrigerator three to wow.

  • After the fridges launched into the air and comes crashing down hard.

  • Indiana rolls out and keeps adventuring, but the fridge would have actually been fatal.

  • If Indy wasn't mortally wounded by the force of the atomic blast hitting the fridge or his hard landing, he would have been hit with a ton of radiation as soon as he opened the door.

  • Unless indie still had access to the Holy Grail, he wouldn't survive this adventure.

  • I think you recognize the gravity of your situation.

  • Number three fast five.

  • Sorry fast and furious fans, but we're ruining another one of the films in Fast five, Dom and Brian Steele, a vault full of $100 million in cash.

  • They accomplish this by using to Dodge Chargers to toe their bounty through the streets at breakneck speeds.

  • You guys have every corrupt cop in Rio on your tail.

  • You just have to move fast.

  • If the vault they stole was full of millions in cash, it would weigh around 15 tons.

  • Guys, I'm hearing all this charge.

  • You just take out a bank.

  • Harvard physicist Dr Randall Kelly calculated that it would take about 467 Dodge Chargers to move that heavy ball to the speeds we sing in the movie.

  • Realistically, Dom and Brian would have reached a max speed of just over two MPH, and they would have gotten away with it, too, if they added about 400 members to their crew.

  • It's a hell of a mess that is number two, the core three months, gentlemen, and we're back in the Stone Age.

  • It takes less than half a now, er for the court to become utterly absurd to anyone with an understanding of physics.

  • After mysterious tragedies keep occurring worldwide, a geophysicist announces that the Earth's core has stopped spinning.

  • He goes on to say that they have a year to restart it before the magnetic field around the earth disappears.

  • When that shield collapses, microwave radiation will literally cook our planet.

  • But according to physicist John Nordberg, if the Earth's core stopped spinning, the magnetic field would be gone in an instant.

  • Even a group of ragtag scientists couldn't delay that phenomenon.

  • Fortunately, scientists have theorized that the rest of the Earth's atmosphere would protect us from most of the catastrophic destruction the film depicts.

  • Let's hope we never have to test that theory before our physics teachers fail our topic.

  • Here are a few dishonorable mentions Wanted.

  • You can't make bullets curve with a flick of the wrist.

  • G I.

  • Joe.

  • The rise of Cobra Heavy chunks of ice shouldn't fall that fast.

  • Two.

  • Fast two furious Brian Speedy car would have flown over the booth.

  • Live free or die hard.

  • John McClane would have broken his legs jumping off the jet alone.

  • Yeah, wow, speed.

  • If the bus miraculously jumped a huge gap, everyone would be injured.

  • Thank you.

  • Number one Armageddon Michael Bay's space thriller kicks into gear when scientists discover a Texas sized asteroid will hit Earth in 18 days.

  • It's what we call a global killer the end of mankind.

  • NASA quickly trains and sends oil drillers to put a nuke inside the asteroid and blow it to space dust.

  • Are you suggesting that we blow this thing up from the inside?

  • It's exactly what I'm saying.

  • Their plan is both extremely rushed and horribly ineffective.

  • According to research astronomer Dr Alastair Bruce, speaking to the I newspaper on Asteroid, his biggest Texas would have been visible for months.

  • And if the space rock was that massive, a single nuke detonated inside would barely tickle it.

  • The explosion of one nuke would only break off smaller pieces of the asteroid that would probably collide with Earth and cause more devastation.

  • Despite the numerous factual errors.

  • Armageddon was a box office smash.

  • It's almost like audiences don't even care about scientific accuracy.

  • Dan, we didn't see this thing coming.

  • Do you agree with our picks?
