Well, I haven't seen this one posted yet (or again the search engine failed me, like all the people in my life).
Anyways, what movie cliche's do you hate? the ugly girl at school that with a little bit of makeup and a new dress becomes a hottie? the spy who is near the computer one scene, the next scene shows the guards open the door, and by then the spy is tucked away in a hideout? post here.

Good exsamples but to me the word cliche has omnivous and negative sound itself, usually it means you have seen the same thing 1000 times before so it feels worn out and stupid, wich leads to conclusion that writers were out of new ideas and/or are lazy.

People only ever use the expression "You like you've seen a ghost" when the other person has actually seen a ghost.

Go watch The Core - no Earth physics in that one, at least not any that make sense.

Which bring me back to one of the things I hate in action movies: people getting catapulted several meters back by a 9 mm bullet.

As for cliches: the villain and the hero always have to settle their differences in elaborate hand to hand combat. Why not just simply shoot the other?

Also, I think we've got a thread for this somewhere, normally i'd search for it myself, but with all the stuff i'm downloading today that would seriously take about 20 minutes.
Meh, who cares.

And sometimes good guys can go through barrels of ammo without having to reload.

*The good guy can instantly figure out how to drive any vehicle, from a Volga (old Soviet Car) to a Bradley APC.

*In all movies, computers always instantly load up correctly (they must all be Macs, I suppose).

  • The bad guy knocks the gun out of the good guy's hand and it slides waaaaaaaay across the room.
  • A single match can sometimes light up a really big room.

In anime, the hero's can fall from Tokyo Tower and slam into the pavement and still have all there bones in perfect order.

Also, in anime people bleed amounts before even considering dying.
