The "revealing of a bad guy who really turns out to be good, but the guy who's supposed to be the pal is the real bad guy OMGZZZ"

Mission Impossible 3 did that beautifully.

I love Tarantino's movies.. just about all of them and in most of them I can stand it but it still drives me crazy lol.

How about going to see a movie based on the kick-ass movie trailer---only to realize (after shelling out so much $$ and wasting so much time) that the only parts even worth seeing were contained in that gosh durn 30-seconds-or-more movie preview???????
(Come on, man. I want my money back!)

I hate exploding cars. Granted, I've never seen a car be shot at, but I'm taking an educated guess that they dont all leap off the ground and roll around in a spectacular ball of fire.

I hate glib one liners. Crikey, they really get on my tits. If someone cracks a funny in a movie, no one in the plot laughs! What are they? Immune to humour???? Dont expect me to laugh if your cast wont!

Matt, Matt, Matt, why are you being so glib? Why are you glib, Matt?

I both hate and love when actors mess up in the movie and the directors leave it in. On the one hand, I like how it's like real life, but at the same time, it's a movie. And we've been accustomed to movies being better than real life. Or something.

Commercials before the movies.

I'll sit through 10 previews (I loooooove those things), but one commercial, and I'm restraining myself from throwing a shoe at the screen.

Yes!!!
That's all we get in these damn Miami theaters. Local TV commercials with bad acting and stupid reggaeton music. Either that or "The 20" from Regal/AMC theaters. Both are equally bad.
