John Scalzi snarks out the design flaws of science fiction movies this week. First Star Wars:

That Asteroid Worm Thing in Empire Strikes Back
So, large space worm lives in asteroid, disguises itself as a cave and waits for unwary spaceships to fly by so it can eat them? Makes the Sarlaac look like a marvel of natural selection, it does.

Then Star Trek:

The Borg
Featured in First Contact, these are the most fearsome aliens in the galaxy, and look like the Tin Man on Goth Night at the local leather bar.

UPDATE (2009-08-29): Oh, and there’s this.
