Kind of a lame interview since Cady tactfully and professionally isn't going to be all that candid about the SFX-fest errors of the film, like crystal spacecraft exploding into tinsel and confetti when struck by debris which would only leave clean holes like bullets not RPGs (like the Mir-supply ship collision), etc. Still it's amazing how many "Bad Science" fil critics are amoured by this film's effects.

Practically every science fiction movie ever made practices bad science.

Science fiction, however, does stimulate a strong interest in science by young people. And some of them eventually grow up to be scientist who change the world.
