#IWSG: Movies v. Books

IWSG: a place where writers and friends share woes or hugs.
Welcome to mine!

I have a complaint about movies.

We see someone shoot a gasoline spill which in turns blows up the gas station. We see a young girl beat up three grown men. A man hurls himself off a building and survives to beat the hero another day.

If we wrote those scenes into our books, why is it not acceptable and why is it that viewers of motion pictures are more willing to suspend belief?

We authors get lynched for not connecting the dots to logic’s dictation and I find that very annoying. 

Anyone else noticed the same? Or feel the same?
