I have a soft spot for "good/neutral character is revealed to be the real villain" plot twists.

 

Even if it's shoehorned into the story, or was really predictable, I still get a kick from it.

I can't fucking stand plots where nobody believes a character for no reason. When a character is telling the truth about some danger and is like "You gotta believe me!" and everyone goes "AW YOU'RE JUST BEING SILLY" or "HE'S CRAZY MAN", I can't fucking stand that.

Not an actual movie cliché, but...

Social_network_film_poster.jpgCarrie_Domestic_One-sheet.jpgMV5BNDkwNTEyMzkzNl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNTAwThe_Martian_poster.jpg

 

This is just pure laziness to advertise and overhype a movie, even if all of these are from the same graphic artist. In The Social Network it kind of works, but in everything else is just dumb-looking, specially when the pictures taken are unphotogenic.

I've mixed feelings on scenes where someone surveys the environment (we see this from their POV) and something extraordinary appears in their field of vision, but they don't notice right away; instead, they keep looking around for another second or so, before then turning to what's happening.

Sure, it allows for interesting camera work, but it doesn't make much sense? Like, humans usually aren't that slow at recognizing things?

Not so much clichés, but broad flaws:
- I don't like how many big budget movies use a story to support the special effects, rather than use special effects to support a story.
- I don't like how many movies (and TV shows) kill off realism to favour happy outcomes and the characters that audience sympathise with.
- I don't like how many comedies prioritise humour over a quality story.

Oh, I don't like that, especially not the implications. The goth girl in The Breakfast Club was way cuter before the makeover.

I also dislike destiny as a plot device, except when the hero decides to shape their own destiny, like in Avatar.

Whatever. I still dislike the message that "weird" girls only look that way because they want attention, and that they would somehow be happier with themselves if they just put on makeup and dressed like conventional females. Also, Bender had to change literally nothing about himself to get his girl, but Allison has to have a makeover to get the guy? For what's supposed to be such an anti-establishment film, that's a pretty dated attitude. (Come to think of it, the film as a whole has dated pretty badly. Getting detention for bringing a gun to school?!?)

I didn't even notice the "fuckton" of dandruff, to be honest. It's a Hollywood film. No one's going to have fucktons of dandruff on them. I'm looking at pictures of her and I still don't see any. Are you just really attentive to those things?

There's a scene where she gets dandruff all over a book. I'd post a video but all of them are too low quality.

I feel a bit odd about the whole takedown speech when a character snaps (not like overly angry just feels like they got to say something). Like on the one hand it's gratifying when it hits but I feel that the more realistic reaction (either the person saying the speech is looked at like a fool or the receiver is unfazed) should be more presentable. Like in the end you may never get that gratification of superceding someone with your high ground and that you have to accept that it may not amount to anything other than getting it off your chest. I guess I prefer any reaction that isn't simply "oh the main character really stuck it to them" than just that for the effect it has. Granted I enjoy a good consequence-free takedown speech in that manner and really any takedown speech in any other scenario. Especially when the character is clearly not fit to be the moral arbiter (like Montana or Bickle).

I don't know if I'd go so far as to call it a cliche, but I love the story trope in time travel fiction of characters coming to grips with their own mortality and making the most of what little time they have. It was used great in Radiant Historia, and sorely missing in the Lanayru section of Skyward Sword.

One thing about that section of Skyward Sword that I actually liked though is the way those little peanut robots are just blissfully unaware of the fact that they can be killed and resurrected at the touch of a button. I don't know if there are a ton of other good examples of that I can think of, though.

I dunno, I thought it had the opportunity to be heartrending with them gradually realizing that they're stuck out of time, and that instead of wallowing on it, they would help you, the next generation, before entering eternal rest.

I think that was one of the bigger problems with Skyward Sword: It prided itself too much in being the "origin" story when it clearly had its own history beforehand. That part, while one of the few things I remember fondly about the game, felt like the game was afraid to admit that it had a prolouge.
