The whole move is crap science. It's like watching Sharknado without the sharks...
the teeny boppers/teens love that stuff

A person watches a blockbuster to complain about the science?

I've just watched the Edge of Tomorrow - Groundhog day meets Aliens, but thoroughly enjoyable.

Watched cheesy Independence day, the original, yesterday. Did I care the science was crap?

When I watch a movie, is the story joined up? Does it fulfill its need?

Unless a film states its about reality, assume its not. Switch off brain and enjoy .

There were three Presto Logs that were obscured from view due to camera angle.

I thought it was great. 2 and 3 we're good but 4 really sucked.:deadhorse. If someone ever does a reboot of this movie they should get Samuel L.Jackson to play Chappy.
