    I am NOT impressed with Mr. Thorne’s scientific consulting on movies. In “Interstellar” please explain how a mountainous tidal wave could form in water only 1 foot deep. In “The Martian” please explain how the thin, almost vacuum of the Martian atmosphere could topple the MAV. Mr Thorne’s movies deserve no votes in this competition. I’d sooner vote for an Ed Wood movie.

    I think the film interstellar should be included as it explained very nicely gravity in black hole, about warm hole ,exoplanet in other universe and much of theoretical physics in relation with relativity ,space time matrix ,time dilution and human colonization in others exoplanet .It is worthy film interstellar is to win the prize
