Neil deGrasse Tyson took to Twitter recently to toy with some earthlings, challenge, nitpick, and critique a series of scientific inaccuracies in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens.'


He's done this in the past with other movies like 'Interstellar,' and quite frankly, it's a bit of an unbecoming buzzkill. Tyson doesn't care though, and claims some of the audience will watch sci-fi films for ideas on what to invent for future days.

Note to future filmmakers: If you're going to make a complex movie about space, make sure you run it by Neil deGrasse Tyson first.

The american astrophysicist, cosmologist, host of "Cosmos" took to Twitter on Sunday to share some thoughts on this year's big space movie from Christopher Nolan: "Interstellar." It wasn't intended as a review of the film, but rather - as he emphasises in a Tweet - to highlight the science you can find in the film.

Tyson wrote a similar critique in 2013 following the release of "Gravity," and a scene from Titanic was changed in an updated release of the film after he pointed out the inaccuracies of the stars to James Cameron.

And as you can see, there aren't a whole lot of complaints this time around.

Spoilers ahead if you haven't seen "Interstellar" yet, but if you have seen it, whether it involved worm holes or plot holes, you probably left the theater with a lot of questions.

Here are a few of his thoughts, check his Twitter feed for more.
