What is the one law of nature that is broken in just about every outer space battle scene ever made in the movies?


In the movies you almost always hear the sounds of other objects exploding, ships firing lasers, etc. Since sound can't travel in a vacuum, each person/alien could only hear the sounds that are created within their own vessel.

Another answer could be that there is usually gravity present when in reality everyone would be floating around (although a few movies have addressed this issue with a gravity field generator or something).
