Outline for Second Term Paper

Physics principle to be explored: Momentum and Force of Impact.

Thesis: Special effects are meant to augment reality, but oftentimes in movies, laws are pushed beyond believably.

Media to analyze:

  • Underworld
  • Iron Man 2
  • The Amazing Spider-Man

From each film I will select and analyze instances in which the reaction of either the environment or character to forces of impact (punching, landing) are unrealistic even for 'superheroes'.
