MIT lists the 5 worst (hard) Scifi movies evar

The prequel "The Day Before Tomorrow" didnt do so well.
For the whole story check out MIT's Technology Review for what they found wrong with these movies and a cringeworthy line from each.  Their list is as follows:

5.  2012
4.  The Lawnmower Man
3.  Day after Tomorrow
2.  The Core
1.  Mission to Mars

I have seen all of these except The Core.  I will have to say that Mission to Mars was my favorite of the bunch.  I think its scores went down with the MIT crowd because the film makers were promoting it as being scientifically acurate before it came out.  I am not sure that Lawnmower man belongs on this list as I am not sure how "hard" it is.  The short story that it is based on is really good and has absolutely nothing to do with the movie.

Like you, I've seen them all but The Core. As a group they were pretty darn bad.

I've seen them all, even The Core, and I'm not ashamed to admit I enjoyed them - especially 2012 and Day After Tomorrow because I LOVE disaster movies. :-)

I thought 2012 was hilarious. Oh, it wasn't supposed to be, sorry.

I've seen THE CORE, but I don't remember it :) But it stars Hilary Swank and she is a forgettable person, so that explains all :)
