That is a completely unpersuasive and silly attempt to draw a meaningless distinction.
Since this is the way I see it, your comment almost comes of as insulting.

Superman flying: buy it.
Superman taking a human to the moon without oxygen: stupid.
Superman being obviously Clark Kent's "twin brother" and nobody recognizing it: stupid.

Ships flying faster than light: buy it.
Red Matter: buy it.
Promoting cadet to captain after one mission: stupid.

Alien robots with personalities transforming into cars: buy it.
A human getting hit by such a robot's punch, without a single scar: stupid.

Jedi and the Force: buy it.
Lightsabers: buy it.
Anakin mercilessly killing the Sandpeople and Padme simply ignoring it like nothing happened: stupid.

John McClane getting into the same shit twice on Christmas Eve: buy it.
Hand grenades taking 30 seconds to detonate: stupid.

And so forth. There simply is some very basic knowledge and stuff that I can't deny for myself.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
