    I have a few…

    – Scientist writing on glass walls. No one ever did that. Scientist have boring offices with white boards sometimes, but mostly just computers.

    – This one genius warning the president about a huge catastrophe and no one listens? No, that doesn’t work that way either. Governments commision research and then they evaluate it and in democracies there will be a parliament of some sort to decide on actions.

    – Scientist work in large teams and almost never you have one single genius. Science doesn’t work that way. Research needs so much time and money and funding.

    – Students at university won’t leave before the professor finished his class. Why should they leave before the professor finishes talking about homework. They are students and they are in Uni voluntarily. It’s their job to keep up with their studies.

    – Hackers hacking instantly on computers with black background and greewn writing and shouting “I am in”.

    – The hero three-point landing. It will crush your knee instantly.

    – Running madly in love to the airport, buying a ticket to get to the gate to your love interest. One could save some hundred bucks and just phone! Or meet later. If you love somebody your feeling won’t disapear.

    I could go on and on…

      Movies where cops call to a suspect from half a block away in order to allow for a pointless five minute foot chase.

      Fancy computer graphics showing a hacker’s progress while hacking into a computer system.

      Guessing someone’s password in three tries or fewer.

      Lens flare. Just stop.

      You can do anything on a smart phone in two clicks/swipes.

    Swords drawn from a scabbard making the noise of the blade scaping across a house brick… uh… I am going to kill you with many bruises and not a single cut ‘cos the blade is so blunt!

    Often scenes that refers to science, engineering or medicine as inevitably they get it wrong or inaccurate – massive explosions in space making the camera shake from the non-existent air blast

    Boy meets girl while hiding some sort of secret . Girl finds out , gets upset and they break up . Then a montage of how she gets on with life , then they run in to each other again for some reason , get together again and it’s happily ever after . SAME BORING S HIT.

    Putting bath room humor in any movie is a waste of time. We don’t want to hear it. It’s absolute crap.
