Worst epic science fail you have seen in sci-fi?
I wanted to like Interstellar - I really, really did. But the movie just never quite did it for me. The frozen clouds were one bit. The other (and biggest) was the solar system most of it takes place in:

A huge black hole, a neutron star, and a main sequence star - with habitable planets in proximity? Seems...unlikely to me. Ok, maybe it could happen, but the movie treated it as a given, not as something highly unusual. In addition the move took the approach that hard science can't be exciting or dramatic. It tried a bit, but the whole thing mainly came across as dry - when it wasn't spending way too much time blubbering through its attempts at human interaction. The Martian did hard science and drama much better IMHO.
