@pheonix Interstellar. They had Kip Thorne vet all of the theoretical and astrophysics that were used in the film.

I loved Interstellar when I saw it. I liked the idea of a "scientifically accurate" sci-fi film, and it certainly seemed plausible at the time, but I recently saw this and rethought that:
Interstellar at 11:00, and relevant comment at 23:35
I know it's one example, but it shows that it was much less the scientists saying "that's implausible, don't do that" and more Christopher Nolan saying "I want this, make science make it work". Still a good movie.
