So no one’s gonna talk about how in a 1 vs 5-6 fight scene all the attackers wait for their turn to get their ass kicked by the alpha guy one by one! And not attacking him altogether?
People climbing through ductwork to get in between rooms. Most ducts are not big enough for a person to fit in.
When there are 2 armies marching toward each other in formation, but as soon as the battle starts it all breaks up into thousands of 1 on 1 melee duels completely ignoring the importance of unit cohesion, discipline, training, and morale.
Whenever someone is working on a vehicle they are quite often using a pipe wrench or huge crescent wrench. Neither are going to get you too far working on a vehicle.
People taking their eyes off the road for like five seconds.
They always turn themselves completely around to talk to people in the back seat or beside them, as if they couldn’t hear each other otherwise.
Grip strength. People hanging off of anything, one-handed, for long times, holding on to other people, pulling themselves up. General population can’t do a pull-up.

Any movie where the villain who is beating the [email protected]#t out of the hero decides to brag or monologue before killing them, which gives the hero enough time for a sneak attack or for somebody else to intervene.
Similarly, immediate hacking.
When people slice the palm of their hand open for a drop of blood. That [email protected]#t will take FOREVER to heal, just prick your finger, damn.
Blows to the head knocking someone out for exactly as long as is convenient for the plot with no long term consequences whatsoever. Even otherwise “realistic” shows and movies are guilty of this. In reality, and blow to the head strong enough to knock you out is likely to cause brain damage or even death.
Empty cups and cans and suitcases. For crying out loud, just put some water in that Starbucks cup, give our brains a little help ignoring the glaring ignorance to the laws of fluid dynamics, gravity, and the human musculoskeletal system.
[email protected]#kers who yank out their IVs, tugged on mine once and I [email protected]#king cried.
Silencers do not mute the gun. It only makes the sound more tolerable.
Bad guy receives a mortal wound like a point-blank gunshot to the torso or deep knife wound and just lays there bleeding profusely for a minute with the protagonist immediately forgetting about them, then is able to somehow stand up and have like an 8 round boxing match with the protagonist before finally being finished off.
Finding car keys “hidden” behind a car’s sun visor. I don’t know a single real human who has ever used this method when stashing keys.
In medieval/fantasy Whenever there is a siege weapon they fire one shot and then “CHARGE!” Like, “[email protected]#ch it took you a month to erect that trebuchet and you’re only going to fire it once?”
During the siege scene in “The King” they sat around for days and days hurling stones at the castle until the wall finally fell and I was like “Yes. Thank you.”
Gunshot to the leg and they can still walk. One to the lungs and they’re breathing fine. One in the heart and they either die instantly or spend a whole minute talking. It is 10 to 20 seconds, not 6 minutes.
Complete lack of legal consequences.
“I need to kill the time-traveling baddie by stealing this cop’s gun and knocking him out, yay I succeeded…what do you mean I am now under arrest for multiple felonies including murder and assaulting a police officer?”
