Thread subject: :: Flies (or other insects) sins in Hollywood

Posted by Gordon on 07-02-2008 09:01

The recent release of "Bee Movie" has got me thinking about creating a website on the entomological sins of Hollywood. While I remember I few specifics I have noted here and there, ANTZ - the whole movie, 8 Legged Freaks - the whole movie, Madagascan Hissing Cockroaches all over the place, several movies, Harvester ants being used to stitch wounds instead of Army Ants, Apocalypso and somewhere else, An Australian Spiny Stick Insect in an underground tunnel in northern India in an early Indianna Jones Movies, Millions of Honey Bees pollinating Maize in an X-Files movie and even David Attenborough talking about a a beetle whilst looking at a heteropteran bug in The Life of Plants.

But I have not noticed, or heard, any dipterological impossibilities, probably because I am a dipterological incompetant, so I come to ask for your memories of dipterological, or other entomological anomalies on TV or in the Cinema.
