My favorite one of these — I think it was in Enemy of the State? — was two supercops looking at a satellite image of a terrorist standing on the roof of a building, and one says to the other, “can you rotate the picture so we can see his face?” I was waiting for the other guy to say something like, “sure, I’ll just rewrite the fundamental laws of the universe so that cameras from overhead satellites can see around corners,” but no, he did it.
