As much as we love make believe and the willingness to lose ourselves in other worlds and the lives of characters on a screen, sometimes stories can get just a smidge out of hand. Or perhaps there is that one small detail that could be avoided with some originality. Being taken out of the story is just as easy as being engrossed in it.

Redditor u/Falcon_Ranger wanted to discuss what movies had some of us seeing red with out there plot lines by asking.... What is something unrealistic that you often see in movies that annoys the hell out of you?


No-Boom!

Giphy

When someone throws a grenade into a building and manages to make a nuclear level explosion out of it. UnPhayzable

Backstory Timing. 

Not-so-subtle exposition.

"Can I come in, sweety?"

"Oh come on mom! You know father died three years ago in a car crash and nothing we do can change that!" hyker1811

Terry Pratchet calls this the "As you know, your father, the King" speech.

Especially in movies, where you have so little time, the dialogue ends up being really unrealistic because it's so hard to communicate that information authentically. Books_and_Cleverness

Key or Combination?

I hate how every lock can be broken by shooting a single round at it. LeonardTringo

Or electronic locks. Just shoot up the keypad and the door will magically unlock. No, Karen, you just destroyed our only means of unlocking the door. Now it is locked forever. FOREVER. approvedmessage

It's a Miss. 

Finding a parking place directly in front of the business you need to visit. WTF? That's about as realistic as the bad guys firing 23 bullets at the good guy and MISSING him every time. CarlSpencer

A paper Cut.

Giphy

When they dive through glass panes and come out without a scratch on the other side. Sotomagic

The break-in scene by Ryan Gosling in "The Nice Guys" is an amazing subversion to this trope. So much blood lol jaseguitar

LOUDER. 

Gunfire in enclosed spaces followed by conversation. Gunfire is damn loud and after a Hollywood fire-fight without ear protection, all you'd hear is mawp mawp mawp. whiterice07

Had a shotgun go off in my small apartment once (complete lapse of gun safety awareness) and was basically deaf for about twenty minutes. Still haven't told my wife and we have moved out since. Sean-OTeague

World Politics. 

When government agents show up in a foreign country and have a shoot out with the bad guys out in public. The shoot out ends, the world moves on, and the government agents return back to the office to talk about what to do next.

One, this never happens like it does in the movies.

Two, if it ever did, it would be all over the news in every country, everyone would know who the government agents are, countries would be having to resolve diplomatic nightmares, and the agents would probably not be in the field again for quite some time. strong_survival

Click. Click. 

Guns that click every single time they're pointed at someone. Also whenever someone is threatening another person at gun point, then they chamber a round. Zer0SWAGFATHER

A Shock & Damn.

Anything medical related. You don't defibrillate (shock) a flat line. It won't work. Terrible_Golfer

Don't forget punching his chest saying "NOT NOW DAMMIT!" idontlikeflamingos

Or is it all too Real?

Giphy


People turning their heads around to talk for extended periods while driving. Focus on the road damn it! hdx514

That always makes me physically nervous. I find myself running to yell at the screen "keep your eyes on the Damned road!" harpejjist

What other movies have you all seen that has stirred u some ire?

When looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

More often than not, one can tell rather quickly that someone possesses above-average intelligence, based on how they speak, how they behave, or other telling details.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

"You either die the hero or live long enough to become the villain."

Though not necessarily a universal truth, all of us have witnessed unfortunate moments in our lives where we've seen this saying become a reality.

Be it seeing our favorite public figures take a serious fall from grace, someone we know and admire eventually disappointing us in a devastating manner, or even seeing ourselves turn into someone we promised we'd never become.

People Describe The Darkest Thing They've Ever Done That They Don't Regret

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

What comes as a surprise to some is when we don't care if we're wrong.

We may still technically be in the right.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.

But still, many people don't care.
