    The bad guy is shot, stabbed, pummeled, blown up, falls from a 5 story window, and still manages to jump up one last time and grab the good guy before he dies.

    The hero can fall through a roof several stories or off a building or bail from a speeding car yet never gets a bruise or broken bone. Superhero’s, villains etc can now jump off buildings and the pavement shatters below them without cracking a toe or shoelace. No matter how hard the hero hits the ground they never even chip a tooth.

    Everyone fires their weapons right next to their partners heads and hears perfectly after that, all the while talking normally. Im pretty sure lighting off a M80 next to my ear would not be good.

    Every surveillance camera can read the faintest detail on anything, no matter what the lighting

    All the bad guys always have complete building plans for any building and know exactly where everything is

    Space communications happen in real time not weeks, months or years when we’re talking supposedly light years apart- uh….no.

    No on ever seems to feel the need to stop and pee or drop a dookie in the movies

    Always a goody... I've come to think that there is a special industry that is alone responsible for the Horse Hooves Sound...

    Everybody walks up to a bar and orders “a beer.” The bartender never asks what kind, but pulls a draft and slides it over. Apparently movie and TV bars only serve a single generic brand of beer.

    I know they usually can’t/won’t mention specifics brands, but it’s so unrealistic it always takes me out of the moment.

    Just the Fast and Furious franchise in and of itself.

    Mid-day gossip shows

    Movie and TV franchises that OBVIOUSLY kill off a character then find a way to write it off as an alien abduction or some slight of hand crap.

    The movie trope "Hellooooo" when the slasher is suspected to be in the house.

    Fake winter.
    I was downtown Toronto a few years ago in summer and an area was covered in 'snow' for a film.
    If you're not breathing steam it looks fake no matter how much fluffy stuff you pile on.

    There is, actually - with complete libraries of pre-recorded audio clips for use in films. Look up "the Wilhelm scream".

    This doesn’t happen as much any more - the late model 4 stroke dirt bike is given a 2 stroke sound track, despite the visible 4 stroke engine.

    Worse, the V-twin sport bike, usually a Ducati, is given the soundtrack of an inline 4 sport bike because the producers, I assume, don’t know enough to do even a little homework.

    Once they get shot in the shoulder area, always the shoulder,
    the bullet gets removed and there are no complications.
    Next day all good.

    Everytime anyone even touches a gun, it makes a clickety, clackety, clickety sound.

    Now that is the gospel truth; back in the day a former coworker had a lever action .45/70 and asked me to shoot it once, key word "once". Yeah once is all it took, no thank you, I like my shoulder and what teeth I have left.....

    The BBC’s sound library includes that of bashing seven bells out of a cabbage with a piece of timber. It exactly replicates the sound of someone’s skull being stoved in............apparently.
