Movies where everyone is attractive, yet insecure...and oh wow! Everything works out.
Every girl has a "nice guy" and "bad guy' boyfriend.
And then, in the end winds up with the "right" one.



I like how is Spider-man 3, the entire city is in the grips of fear because one woman is held hostage.
Yea...that doesn't happen like 1,000,000 times in a day there.

Well, in fairness, it doesn't happen all that often that it is some supervillain hanging the person overhead in a giant web.

I hate hate hate with great passion those damned movies where the teen cast speak overly long, too clever, angst ridden dialogues

Little kids that constantly interrupt with their irritating chipmonk lilted voices that usualy don't shut the F#ck up

Little brats that for no explained reasons start to sing with all their might in their high pitched saprono quackery, their supposedly cute little verses

Drawn out vicious fights where the protagonists use everything at hand to bash the sh#t out of each other and unexpectedly don't suffer the damaging effects of said bone breaking battery and then usually go on to either run a further marathon, engage in additional close quarter violence, have a drink, make wild passionate love or go back to their mundane employment as if nother what so ever has happened

I know! Like She's all that and f**kin' Dawson's creek.
Okay, we get it life's not fair, what's the point...blah-blah-blah!
Jesus! Who was THAT f**kin' moody as a teen?!?
Well-off, attractive white kids have it sooo bad.



I really hate the pre-really scary thing cat scare.

When really cool songs are put in to make a scene cool because like one line or verse matches but the song doesn't fit.

Kate Hudson.



The sexist stereotypes that all guys are either a**holes or p***ies. Ya know, either intellectual, or moronic. Also, that "ugly" girls are just pretty girls with their hair pinned back and wear glasses.

An extension to that is "the bad guy who just can't be killed." Don't care if it's Jason who gets to his feet for the 12th time after receiving a wound that would have killed 12 normal men or the long-haired Viking freak in Die Hard who is left hanging by the neck in chains in one scene only to come back in the last scene armed to the teeth and passing through the whole police department to take one more crack at the hero.

Another slice of cheese is the guy who, because of his moral convictions or a really bad experience like he once shot the wrong person, has avoided even picking up a gun, but in a make-or-break moment when the hero's or heroine's life is at stake, whips out Ol' Betsy and blows the bad guy to hell, at last proving that he is a real man by gawd. Also seen in the final shot of Die Hard.

And an extension of that is the person who has grown up in a very conservative and even strict religious environment and has embraced and believed in that way of life for 20-30 years, yet when the first person outside that religion comes along and makes a pass at that person, he or she hops in bed with the newcomer. Examples are the Quaker mom letting Harrison Ford peep at her nude sponge bath in Witness and the young engaged orthodox rabbi who is seduced by the foul-mouthed Melanie Griffth in A Stranger Among Us.



That 800 rounds can be fired at someone and MAYBE only nick them!
That two people who don't know each other for more than a day and a half can be "in love" and be willing to die for the other, I am referring to Titanic. Show them 30 years later, if he survived, his vagrant a** mooching off her and see how much "true love" is left.



That there's never any collateral damage, or innocent bystandards in action films as a result of the hero.
Also, like in the terminator movies, that the most spectacular battles ensue without so much as a witness, especially in today's sensationalistic news media!

Ah, I enjoy your spot-on assessment of Titanic. :-)
And that bit about dodging through a hail of bullets had me laughing at the silly remake of 3:10 to Yuma when the outlaws literally were shooting houses to pieces and never even scratched the deputy or his prisoner.



I'm a cynic, and ruin "romance" movies for people. In my opinion, fantasy films are more realistic than this emotional pornography.
Make a real love story, like The Breakup, hard feelings and resentment in the end.

Another old chestnut that's been done to death is when a group of people are stuck in a spaceship or a haunted house or some other mysterious location, stalked by some sort of savage beast, ghost, or serial killer, and the leader of the group says, "Our only hope is if we all stick together. Keep everyone in sight!" And in the very next scene someone wanders off alone down a dark passage to feed the cat or retrieve his toenail-clipper or some other silly mission and immediately winds up as gore on the wall.

The war movie version is the GI who screams, "They got Joe!" and runs out with his gun blazing into this open area where there's no enemy to be seen, with all the other members of his squad yelling at him to get down! So of course, K-pow! The enemy drops him with one shot, and the first thing this jerk does is yell, "Medic!" Just once I'd like to see the medic yell back, "Sorry, I don't make house calls for idiots!"



In Horror movies, some dumba** goes to; A. do drugs B. have sex or C. just wander off to be killed.
It's always d***heads and b****es that you want to get killed anyway...never do I feel sorry for these walking targets.
Also, the one character with the "troubled" past who comes out of it a better person, and faces their demons.

This is a great or perhaps grate thread ... keep it up guys and gals it chuckles my system

another pet peeve is the ultra glamourous look of the 2 lovers the morning after ... sure the clothes are scattered and torn, sure the sheets are ruffled and ripped ... however our couple awake fresh from the previous scene of the frenzied and frantic night before ... awake without a misplaced hair, makeup immaculate and without even the need to bush one's teeth
