Realistic Movie Buffs Imagine How Popular Movies Would've Ended If Characters Acted Rationally

[rebelmouse-image 18359159 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Moviegoers share a dark secret when they go to watch films. From a dark, hidden corner of their hearts, they want the main characters and heroes of cinema to make terrible, not-well-thought-out decisions. By choosing to go into the dark basement alone or not call for backup even though everyone on the planet has a phone on them, will make the story more engaging. Sometimes, though, it seems like the call was made to have a character make the wrong choice because if a character made the right choice, the movie would have ended. That's what Reddit user, r/danbrownskin, wanted to find out when they asked:

What movie would have ended too soon if a character acted rationally?

People = Dinosaur Chow

[rebelmouse-image 18359160 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Jurassic World - I don't know where the dinosaur is so I'm going to casually look around his pen in person. And don't bother with a service entrances or anything, the large gate that can let the dinosaur out will work fine.

[rebelmouse-image 18359162 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Alien Covenant.

Don't defy the "don't land in this storm" advice of the AI that's designed to be a billion times better than you in this one specific task of navigating; don't take off your helmet on a strange planet; don't trust an android that's surrounded by a city of corpses.


The Fault in Disney

[rebelmouse-image 18359163 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Nothing Wrong With This Except Everything

[rebelmouse-image 18359164 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

50 Shades of Grey

'I'm bad for you Ana' 'Ok cool, have a good life'

'I'm into BDSM' 'I'm a virgin, see ya later'

I could go on...


There's Always Time To Stop And Eat

[rebelmouse-image 18359165 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

If the original driver in Talladega Nights didn't decide to get a chicken sandwich halfway through the race we would have never gotten to see Ricky Bobby go fast


Rule #4: Never Buy A Gremlin

[rebelmouse-image 18359167 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]


Don't buy some weird creature with apparently very specific rules (which the consequences of breaking are never explained) from the shopkeeper's son AFTER the shopkeeper specifically says it's not for sale.

Well at least don't act surprised when they go on to destroy an entire town.


More, Poor Dinosaur Chow

[rebelmouse-image 18359168 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I guess the movie wouldn't have exactly ended...but I always thought Dennis Nedry would have gotten away with it if he just didn't drive like an idiot to the dock in Jurassic Park.


Then We Would Never Have Known His Name...

[rebelmouse-image 18359169 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Not a movie, but Breaking Bad would have ended in first episode if Walt swallowed his pride and took the money he was offered.


It Really Tied The Room Together

[rebelmouse-image 18359170 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The Big Lebowski, if that Asian dude didn't pee on the rug it would have ended right there.

Thank god he did though.


A New Hope Would've Become A Terrible Choice

[rebelmouse-image 18359171 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Star Wars A New Hope.

"Blast the escape pod just in case since droids wouldn't give off life signs"


Learn To Mind Your Own Business

[rebelmouse-image 18359172 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]


If the police chief wouldn't have been such an ass and accepted Rambo passing through his city, it would've made the movie like 30 min long.


Always Blame The Maid

[rebelmouse-image 18359173 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

101 Dalmatians.

On the night the puppies are born, Cruella comes to purchase them, only to find that they have no spots. "Mongrels! No spots! The devil take them!" she shouts. The housekeeper counters "they'll get their spots, you'll see!" If she had just kept her damn mouth shut, Cruella would not have bothered to steal the puppies. Pongo and his family would live happily ever after. Things would not end so well for the other 84 dalmatian puppies that were bought and paid for.


Is Voldemort Truly That Evil?

[rebelmouse-image 18359174 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Harry Potter,

Voldemort could've punched that baby straight in the face and the movie would be done.


Chocolate Makes The Mind Go Mad

[rebelmouse-image 18359176 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Strangely enough, Willy Wonka & the chocolate factory would have been a lot longer if the characters had acted rationally. "Oh, you're all good kids, erm, I'll have to think longer about this....."


No More Motion Sickness

[rebelmouse-image 18359177 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The Blair Witch Project.

"Ok you know what. Nevermind"


Call The Locksmith!

[rebelmouse-image 18359178 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

If Newt had fixed the lock on his suitcase the minute he saw it was broken


Moral Of The Story? Always Go To The Bar

[rebelmouse-image 18359179 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Wreck-it Ralph could have been over a lot faster if Ralph had decided to not go try to win a medal, but instead just spend some time at the bar. The result would be the same - the other characters realize that without him, they don't have a game, so maybe they shouldn't be d-cks.


Maybe Let Your Mom Know?

[rebelmouse-image 18359180 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

127 Hours.

If the main character decided to let someone know where he was hiking, go with a friend or not act like a goddamn idiot he would have kept his damn arm.


But, What About The Midichlorians?

[rebelmouse-image 18359181 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Star Wars would have been very different if everyone stuck with their gut and left Anakin alone.

"This kid had a very abnormal birth. His power levels look like they could be off the chart. Still, he is not interested in that. He just wants to be a pod racer and an engineer. How about we leave him alone and let him be the tech nerd he wants to be..."


The Problem With Every Horror Movie...

[rebelmouse-image 18359182 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Better go check it out and say hi."


The Problem With Every Romantic Movie...

[rebelmouse-image 18359183 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Basically every romance movie ever made. They fall in love, they miscommunicate or misunderstand and thus break apart. OH NO! Why not talk it out like adults? Because then the movie would end after the first 30 mins.


And The Man That Started It All...

[rebelmouse-image 18359184 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

They're not movies, but basically any Shakespeare play:

Othello- just talk to your wife and sort things out

Macbeth- they're witches, don't listen to them

Romeo and Juliet- plan this s--t out together before you do pretend to kill yourselves Etc


H/T: Reddit

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.

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.

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.
