Gene Starwind has red hair too. And Washu, well, she has more of a magenta. Throw that theory into the crapper then.

Basic love-story formula:
1)Boy gets girl
2)Boy loses girl 
3)Boy gets girl back

I almost any action or catastrophy movie, something bad happens to the hero and the super-hot babe he met earlier in the movie. The girl gets all hysterical and panicky and totally failes to keep her head clear, but the hero always stays 100% calm, and knows exactly what to do (and he has to calm down the girl, which always is a very difficult task).

In a catastrophy movie like "independence day" and "deep impact", all children have mysteriously vanished from the streets when the city is destroyed.

If there is a giant explosion behind the hero, doesn't have to worry too much, as he'll always 1)outrun, or 2)drive faster than the shockwave.

or 3) get caught up in the shockwave and disappear in a thick cloud of dust. When the shockwave has passed the hero will slowly dig himself out underneath all the rubble, t-shirt torn, a streak of blood down one chin, otherwise unscathed, while muutering something cool.

    That's what I've always said: kids ruin movies.

    I'm a particularly avid hater of the tacked-on love plot.  The worst transgression I can think of was "The Matrix".  It was a perfectly fine sci-fi action-flick until the end.  I thought so, anyway.

    I also have to agree on the poor marksmanship of bad guys.  I enjoyed "Die Hard II" where a bad guy managed to shoot:
    • A can of spray paint McClain is holding.
    • A lightbulb near McClain.
    • Not McClain.
    Maybe they're just unforunate.  Whenever James Bond is running through a pipe-framed structure, the bullets all spark harmlessly off the steel.

    Happy endings always drive me up a wall.  I am sick of happy endings, and I have started to refuse to go to see films that I know will end happily.  Even "Jurassic Park III" ended on too high of a note.  I really wish Billy had died...same with that kid, but that relates to the first cliche.

    Finally, I hate how "bad guys" always dress in black, have threatening names (either foriegn-sounding or compact and threatening.  You'd never hear of a Bond-villian named "Mr. Weezal", because "Weezal" sounds like "weasel", which is a hilarious word), and keep their henchmen supplied with AK-47s.  If you ever have to save the world, just be sure to shoot anyone holding an AK-47.

    I think Bond is both evil and wealthy. What kind of person gets paid to kill all day, and not be at least a little evil? Also, he probably gets a bundle to risk his life.

    James Bond isn't meant to be English, according to the novels he is half Scottish half French-Swiss. The best James Bond actor was Scottish.

    This probably belongs in the movie review thread, but damn it, I so agree. Whenever someone dies in a movie, they always have some moving last words. I thought it was pretty cool how the last thing Sam Neil told him was that he's no better than the people who cloned the dinosaurs in the first place.

    But of course they had to be Hollywood dicks and have him not be dead in the end. Oh well.

    If you're a hot woman, you have or will have slept with James Bond.

    Sean Connery will always insult Alex Trebek's mother.

    The villain always tells the hero the details of his scheme. And if there's a time bomb involved, it would an LED display to help the hero find out when the bomb is going to explode, which is usually hours from now.

    All people that hated each other will couple up later in the movie, i.e. Speed.

    Peasants in medeival movies may look scruffy and have messed-up hair, but manage to keep their teeth white.

    All scenes in space tend to look fake (anyone else noticed that?)

    Also not necessarily "in-movie", but I've noticed all blockbusters tend to be highly overrated (but that's probably been discussed millions of times)

    The is always a whoosing-sound when spaceships fly by, although sound doesn't travel in space. Same problem with laser-shots.

    If the supervillain is a genius, his henchmen are Forest Gump clones.
