Physics in Movies (Skyfall)



blog-0916959001395005083.jpgOn March 1, 2014, user Ben Shelton discussed how physics is used in the James Bond movie Skyfall. Since I have seen this movie and other action movies like it, I found it interesting how heroes such as James Bond defy the laws of physics. Ben Shelton broke down the first scene of Skyfall using the equation vf2 = vi2 + 2ad to prove the inaccuracy of a character's fall. It makes me wonder how physics could be used to analyze other action movies.

Here is the link to the original post (warning: it contains spoilers):

I, also, enjoy analyzing movies to see just where they "go off the rails," physics-wise.  Pirates of the Caribbean has a great clip that makes it easy to do a similar analysis:
