#ScienceAMovieQuote Makes Your Favorite Movies That Much Punnier

Love quoting classic movies? Love science puns? Then paleontologist Jon Tennant and neuroinformatics development officer Helena Ledmyr have your number, because they came up with the #ScienceAMovieQuote hashtag. It all started when Tennant tweeted out the joke “I love the smell of null hypothesis rejection in the morning”; as he told The LA Times, he realized that many researchers tweet about their projects. Once Ledmyr saw his tweet, she was quick to come up with the hashtag—and now the rest of Twitter has joined in.

What’s great is the range of movies getting remixed: We spotted homages to Star Wars, The Princess Bride, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Jaws, Dirty Harry, The Matrix, and many more. Here are some of our favorites!
