How often have you seen something like this:
Phone rings. Hero/Heroine picks it up. "Hello. Yes. O.k. Right. Thanks, Goodbye." (Total elapsed time on phone: 5 seconds.)

Hero/Heroine turns to other character: "That was John. He says that the Marilyn left for the lawyer's office about an hour ago, and she should have been there by now. He's called the lawyer's office but Marilyn apparently never got there. He also called Bill's, thinking she'd stop by there, but Bill hasn't seen her. John says he's going to call Anne, as Marilyn said she and Ann were going to go shopping sometime today. If she's not at Anne's, he's going to call the police. He suggests that we drive over to Mario's and check with him as to whether or not Marilyn told Wally about the statue. However, he thinks this is unlikely as Marilyn doesn't trust Wally, she only trusts us and Fransisco. John also suggests we try to get in touch with Fransisco . . . ."
that is friggin hilarious and so true!!! lol

Sports movies that only show close-up shots because the actors actually have no athletic talent...particularly gross in baseball movies - Summer Catch, Angels in the Outfield, Bull Durham. These movie people need to fall the lead of Miracle and have athletes do the shots to make it work better.

The frenetic cutting during dance routines. I want to see the dancers, not the split-second close-ups of their arms or legs.

The Saving Private Ryan style of shooting battle scenes, especially close combat, is also getting old. I'd prefer to see what's actually going on.

Thank The Godfather Part II for that one...
Still, it's a pretty tasty line, isn't it?

I hate when people get wounded repeatedly, and not only do they keep fighting, but they walk off into the sunset at the end of the movie like they were never wounded at all.

The people always surviving explosions that would at least scar somebody pretty badly, if not outright kill them. "Twister" immediately comes to mind for this one-the two main characters drove that car through that huge fireball, and yet managed to come out totally unscathed (car wasn't in that bad of shape, either-my mom, while watching that part, said, "I want that car." ).

And yet, the villains in that movie were sucked up into a tornado and had their car come crashing back down and explode, and they died instantly . Go figure.

The fact that anyone driving a vehicle in a movie can look only at the person in the seat next to him while holding an extended conversation....and not run off the road.

When there is a war scene in the film and the hero is outnumbered yet the hero always fight on the front lines and (face to face) with the enemy and never gets injured.



The woman who is out late at night who decides to take a shortcut through a dark alley.

-That- move from Uma Thurman and John Travolta's dance in Pulp Fiction. I'm sick to death of films referencing it.

The unmarried, childless career woman is always an icy, nasty bitch.

Or, she gets in her car and goes to start it...and it won't start up right away, it stalls for the longest time, and then just as the bad guy's about ready to get her, suddenly, the car comes to life and she's outta there !

Well I see that Monster-In-Law is really tearing up the charts...so,

any movie with J-LO involving being the odd bitch out has to be

depressing...

Best thing I've read all day.
