Chemical & Engineering News established Reel Science in 2004 to encourage critical thinking about the way science is presented in film. The site includes reviews of new theatrical releases evaluated with a scientific audience in mind and recommendations of older films that have been influential or controversial within the science fiction genre. In addition, the site provides news and resources about the ways scientists and screenwriters are working to increase public understanding and appreciation of science in film.
