Truth vs. Hollywood

I was reading this interesting column in NY Times, Mistakes in Typography by Alice Rawsthorn. Honestly it's the first time I ever looked at typography from this point of view. I can feel her view about typographical errors, usually I feel similar when I see a scientifically incorrect assertion in a movie for example.

Sometimes I think movies are not textbooks, they just should not be too wrong. But changing the truth to make it more cinematic has been OK with me. If we want Hollywood appreciate scientific values, we have to realize its rules too.

For now, I'm just enjoying reading this article.
