NickelAntonius: The jeep in Jurassic World still being in perfect operating condition, with viable fuel, after 20+ years in an abandoned garage.

Caught myself saying “That’s so unrealistic” out loud, watching a movie about man-eating genetically engineered dinosaurs.

lifeofmammals: get distracted when I don’t understand how a character is earning money, or they have a lifestyle that seems unaffordable with the job they’re supposed to have.


TrueLegateDamar added: In the Chris Pratt Tomorrow War, he laments being a mere highschool science teacher while having a huge-ass house, big TV and nice car, and was planning to leave his wife and kids over being a ‘loser’.

3. Getting shot with a shotgun

Hagsnot: Hollywood’s insistence that getting shot with a shotgun will throw you back several feet.



4. When things are conveniently silent

cloud_watcher: When things are conveniently silent: Talk about someone in a normal voice when they’re three feet away. “Can I have a word with you for a minute?” Steps to the other end of the couch for a long conversation about something secret.

Or, sneaks into the back of a car when someone is right there. Car doors make a lot of noise.


5. Being flung hundreds of yards

punkpearlspoetry: In The Queen‘s Gambit, when Anya Taylor-Joy’s character loses control of her life, and she’s sitting there in a satin nightgown with perfect hair and makeup. Sure. That’s what I look like when I lose control over my life too


Kimba added: Have you noticed how much makeup women are wearing on TV shows and movies when they go to bed? 😳

Dull-Bid-7051: Makeup and hair done in unrealistic settings or wrong eras

You are in a post apocalyptic world trying to survive and somehow you have your hair done with a bit of cat eyeliner. 

Another one is historical movies with modern hair and makeup. Wank my eyes out.


9. Scene where person gets to hold the gun

harperfin: Any scene in a movie where an ordinary person gets hold of a gun of any sort and instantly knows how to hold, accurately aim, fire, and reload it.

BurtReynoldsLives: When 102 pound actresses dispatch a room full of dudes that look like Dave Babtista without taking a single knock in the process. Same can be true with make actors too.


11. Mutt learns within minutes how to swing on vines from the monkeys

crazysouthie: Okay The Kingdom of Crystal Skull has been discussed a lot but for me it wasn’t the scene where Indy gets into the refrigerator. That did cross a certain line of disbelief but I could live with it. For me, it was the scene where Mutt (an awful character) learns within minutes how to swing on vines from the monkeys, has enough arm strength to keep going at it and is so fast he can catch up with a speeding car.
