A girl in a serious relationship runs into someone who she previously had a short but intense relationship with.

She then dumps the current guy for the guy that she used to fuck and has no second thoughts about it.

Guy stalks girl, and when the girl finally finds out about it and confronts him, he makes a lengthy explanation of the quirks he likes in her. The girl starts out telling him out by telling him how much of a creep he is, and then turns it around mid-sentence into how it is the sweetest thing she's ever heard.

also, a semi auto pistol clicking when its out of ammo instead of the slide locking to the rear.

and, the all time action movie cliche, unlimited ammo. dude never ever ever run out of ammo or are seen reloading unless it is for dramatic effect. i mean i love scarface, but the final scene he is literally firing an M16 on full auto for like five minutes straight and i think he reloads like once.

the super cool bad guy walking in slow motion while the other people run, yet the bad guy still catches up to them.......see every horror movie ever made.

in caper movies, there is always a brainiac hacker who has a gadget or uses a computer for every task needed with the utmost ease. we need to hack into the CIA computer, no problem 3 seconds on the key board and hes in. i need to hack that super awesome lock, no problem my lock hacking device will have it open in 2 seconds.

The guy and girl in the movie have some sort of argument.

The movie then has a montage of each of them thinking about it alone, usually looking out a window or something while the current pop singer belts out a ridiculous chorus while playing acoustic guitar.

When the song is over they talk again, make up, and kiss.

Also, any movie where someone states their invention unsinkable, unbreakable, unhackable, etc. and is proven wrong in the most ironic manner.

When the main car in a car chase seems to have a 12 speed transmission... I can't stand when the driver shifts just for emphasis (See "Gone in 60 seconds" Eleanor scene)

Especially when it's like a fucking minivan or something that couldn't break traction if it wanted to.

Pretty much anything that happens to a car that breaks the laws of physics annoys me (ie Casino Royale when Bond rolls an Aston Martin by turning sharply).

not a movie cliche, but in car commercials where the car is effortlessly gliding around a huge city that's completely empty.

show us what really happens... you sit in line for a light like everyone else. no one cares you have a brand new lexus, and they damn sure aren't clearing the streets for you.

Any moment where there's a slash/gunshot and you have to wait 5 seconds to know who actually died.

I hate when regular people fall from ridiculous heights, or get hit with something heavy and just bounce back like nothing happened...for instance, in Transformers, when the Mustang Cop Car Decepticon is chasing Shia LeBeouf's character, "Sam," and hits him. Sam flies 30 feet, lands on a car and busts it's windshield, and when the transformer asks him where the glasses are, he's like "I don't know what you're talking about!!" Pretty sure that would have knocked him out, or at least knocked the wind out of him. I mean, come on.

[Edited on June 10, 2008 at 9:59 AM. Reason : V haha, nah, that's just an example of what I'm talking about - people in general not getting hurt.]

1) happy endings where everything works out and the bad guy gets pwnd
2) snappy one-liners (esp. under stress)
3) one scientist finds cure / solution working by him or herself in a makeshift lab
4) All the aforementioned computer things / computers can do anyting, as in loading the computer virus onto the alien ship's computer in Independence Day.

Worst example of this is a Bond movie. Elektra King has him tied up and asks him his family motto. "The World is Not Enough". Seriously, that's the best y'all could come up with?

An annoying cliche to me is where the dork gets the hot girl.

^I think you mean prejudiced.

Quote :
"Other language screwups, for example in Braveheart the princess spoke with a French accent while the king and prince spoke with an English accent, when actually they all would have spoken French at that time."


I consider myself somewhat of a history buff. At that point in time wouldn't they be speaking English, not the French of their enemies. Or is that not far enough along yet?

Quote :
"Pretty much anything that happens to a car that breaks the laws of physics annoys me (ie Casino Royale when Bond rolls an Aston Martin by turning sharply)."


Agreed. Thats the only part of the movie that pisses me off actually, lol. One of the extras in the DVD shows you how they made the car flip. They said it was actually pretty difficult to make it flip, lol.

I also hate handbrake turns in car commercials for cars with FWD. Its like, LOOK, we're pretending to drive RWD cars

I'm thinking of Cube specifically, but it applies elsewhere. After they start discovering that each person in the cube has a specific talent, the teenage chick is all like "I don't know why they chose me! I'm just a dumb teenager!! waaaa!!" And then five minutes later we find out that she's a super math genius. "ummmmmm, yea, it's just a talent that I have. I don't know where it came from, but I can factor 7 digit numbers in my head in two or three seconds." Wow, thanks for letting us know that when we first asked you, bitch!

although the main character dies in green st hooligans, so it's okay w/ me. even though that movie contains the ridiculous statement that the boston redsox have a pitcher who can throw the ball faster than 90 miles per hour! omgnowai!
