Ever felt bad when some prominent movie character died just because the others did not use their brains for a minute? Well, we did too. A couple of weeks back, a Reddit user asked readers to name some movies that would’ve had some of the characters alive had the others just used…like…one brain cell.
Here are just a few of the movies that would’ve had more characters remaining at the end had some of the other characters thought for longer than one second:
1) Jaws (1975)
Many died all because of the dumb mayor who thought it would be a great idea to keep the beaches open despite grave warnings from a shark scientist and the police chief
2) Prometheus (2012)
The entire crew would’ve lived had the two idiots who were stranded underground during a storm decided it wasn’t a good idea to mess with a completely unknown alien species.
3) King Kong (2005)
New York is a pretty populated place. Hundreds of lives could have been saved had someone retrospected to not bring him to the city.
4) Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986)
All of Jason Voorhees’ victims from this movie onward would still be alive if Tommy Jarvis didn’t angrily stab Jason’s corpse with the gate spike that conducted the lightning which resurrected him
5) The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
Pretty much everyone who died in this installment of LOTR and throughout the trilogy would’ve simply lived had Elrond just shoved Isildur into the lava when he had the opportunity.
6) John Wick (2014)
So many people would still be alive in this movie’s universe if either
A) Iosef Tarasov didn’t kill John’s puppy, to begin with, or
B) His father, Viggo Tarasov, had just turned him over.
John Wick was a legend, they knew what was going to happen. \
7) Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
Quicksilver has been shown to be faster than bullets. Only if he would have picked Hawkeye up and ran away instead of jumping in front of him, we would’ve had seen one more Avenger fighting the Mad Titan.
8) Batman Begins (2005)
Bruce Wayne’s parents would’ve probably lived if they didn’t take the shortcut through an alley literally known as ‘Crime Alley’.
9) Titanic (1997)
It was pretty stupid of Rose to jump back on the ship just to be with Jack when it was sinking. Had she not done that, Jack would’ve been able to find a way off the boat without having to worry about Rose’s safety on top of his own.
10) Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)
A ton of characters in the Harry Potter universe would’ve lived if the Ministry of Magic believed that Voldemort had returned instead of ignoring the obvious truth.
