13 Movie Myths That Are Making Us All Dumber

For all the pitfalls and problems with the industry, it is undoubtedly true that films provide plenty of benefits. A little bit of magic is enough to entertain millions of people and sometimes even teach them a thing or two about the way the world works. Unfortunately, there are plenty of suggested “facts” that aren’t necessarily true. After seeing these types of  myths several times in countless different films, people began to accept them without ever questioning just how truthful they actually are.

Like horrible true things left out of biopics, these false facts movies perpetuate are skewing audiences’s perception of reality. Maybe filmmakers are also blissfully unaware or maybe they are purposefully ignoring scientific fact that could potentially ruin a movie’s plot. In either case, some of the myths from movies people believe are certainly not helping us to become smarter as a species, so hopefully, this article can help enlighten you just a little bit.
