Only in Movies

An amusing list of "20 Things That Happen Only in Movies," such as this: "The ventilation system of any building is the perfect hiding place. Nobody will ever think of looking for you in there and you can travel to any other part of the building undetected."

To that list, I'd add this one: When a building explodes, the heroes will never be either 1) in the building, or 2) at some safe distance. Instead, they will be running at top speed away from the building, and at the precise instant of the explosion, they will with perfect timing make a giant leap forward, thereby just barely escaping the reach of the blast.
