List some of your favorite DUMB things that people do in movies.

Here's my short list to start.

2012 The Movie - Woody Harrelson waiting at ringside for the Yellowstone Supervolcano to erupt!



Ghost Galleon (1974) - Noemi taking her time to put on high heels to run from Sergio. Not to mention the LOUD noise of her heels when running - it's what got her caught!



Paranormal Activity (2007) - Just about everything that Micah did in this move! Ignoring the psychic, teasing the demon and trying to communicate with it right after the psychic said NOT to.



What are some of your favorites?  Twirling

One of the first things people do when they know a killer is on the loose is go their separate ways.

To add to the 'killer on the loose' scenario:

- go outside to investigate the screams/gunshots/monster noises

- run UPSTAIRS when being pursued by said killer

- bash killer over head with shovel/club/tire iron, and when killer falls unconscious, slowwwwwly creep over only to have the killer jump up and decapitate them

Might have the best example of all:

Vacancy (2007)

SPOILERS

A couple are confronted by one knife-wielding guy. Their options are either fight/get past him, or shelter in an inn where they KNOW snuff movies are being made. They, naturally chose option #2, because certain death trumps minor chance of getting stabbed in their eyes.

Worse, they survive, meaning the villains are even dumber than these morons.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

Women in giallo films who generally NEVER fight back against their attackers.  They just sit in place and scream.  They might as well say, "okay, just stab me and get it over with".  Lookingup

Women who never fail to trip and fall when being chased. While I can understand that to a point why stay on the ground for way too long before getting up to run again?!?!

She is nekkid indeed: crawling around in the attic of her house.

As to watching it, read my review on here (the submitted reader reviews child board) and then you can decide.

Any female in any '50s horror movie who is frozen in fear when they see whatever is threatening them.  And anyone in a slasher movie who runs through the woods for 100 yards and then assumes they're safe.  Or like Archivist said, hit the killer over the head, knocking them out momentarily.  Then assume they're dead.  The end of Friday the 13th was probably the dumbest of all time in that regard.

Contrary to poular belief, left-handedness is a choice. All allegedly left-handed people are just faking it to annoy the rest of us.

Disposable guns.

Often in movies where characters are fighting for their lives with guns, you will see them throw the guns away when they run out of ammo. Why not keep it in the off chance that you can reload?!?

People who find a dead body, then pick up the murder weapon, getting the blood all over their hands & their fingerprints all over the weapon.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
