We don't like to admit that movies influence the way we see the world, but they most certainly do. How else would we get information on things that we will never actually do or see in real life, read a book? Psshh, yeah right. Almost everything we know about space, war, dinosaurs and crime is from TV and the movies. Sometimes we will learn things from the news, but they're even worse at showing the truth. Things are sensationalized, exaggerated, fictionalized, whatever it takes to make it more interesting. Sometimes the movies don’t really have a choice about how accurate they can be. Things are made a little more interesting for the sake of a story. Some truths are stretched to make them look better on camera, while others are helpful to move a story along more smoothly, but all of these influence the way we understand things. Over time, if we see something over and over in film, we start to believe that it must be the way it's done in real life, but we were foolish. They've been lying.
So let's clear a few things up. We'll look at some of the biggest lies in the world of film and we will right these wrongs. We will make you all into better and brighter people by highlighting these common misconceptions. Soon you'll be able to watch films and see through their shenanigans. No longer will you be forced to live in the shadows of your own ignorance. Rise up! They won't be able to fool you like they once did. You'll see the world clearer and you'll earn the respect of your peers. Don't be a sheep. Stop letting Hollywood tell you lies. You don't deserve it. Here are 15 movie world myths that everyone still believes.

1 Restarting Hearts With Defibrillators
It happens all the time in the movies. Someone flatlines with no heart beat, so the paramedics, doctors or whoever come in, grab the de-fib paddles and shock them back to life. It's really dramatic and everyone cries. But this would never work in real life. When someone's heart stops, you need to perform CPR. If, however, someone is in ventricular fibrillation—maybe suffering from rapid heart contractions or some other heart abnormality—you could then use the de-fib paddles to shut down the heart and allow it to reset itself.
