Cliches in Movies you Like or Dislike (192 views, 16 replies)

Post cliches you don't like or that you like. Perhaps cliches you can't take any more and everything in your mind about cliches in movies.

A cliche I had too much is when detectives argue with their superiors. Captains usually need to restrict the good detectives from doing their jobs. I have to say in the next case with Melissa McCarthy it was funny to me...

Another cliche I started to hate: The IT specialists in the films : "I got it....klikliklikl and in secs....They know everything about everyone everywhere"




Or the hacker : in 5 mins or less.... kliklikaklik, " voila, I am in..."

Perry Mason moments in the last five or ten minutes of a show that solves the tough story.
Shows / episodes that turn out to be a dream.
A long story happens as character was 'was only out for a minute.'
Blank hours earlier . . .

@🐬_Nasos_🐬

I've seen each and every episode before my swing shift in the early 80's. I remember watching them with my father in the mid to late 60's as well.

@Bread&Circuses I too have memories of watching series as kid with Dad but early 70's. Ain't that sweet.... I think Dad bought TV around 1969 or 1970, can't really tell if this memory is correct.

@🐬_Nasos_🐬 I remember when we got our first color tv. Dad got it so he could watch Bonanza in color. It arrived just in time to watch Dark Shadows one afternoon. 1968 so as I recall.

Diversity exaggerated so far passed what's found in reality that it predominates story lines.
Sure, exposed diverse folk to further mainstream; ease strife, etc. Just stay closer to reality to not diminish such efforts.

1.Movies where the US President runs around with a few ordinary plebs and saves the world.
2.Movies where a geek takes charge and teaches the military to save the world
3.Alien movies where their technology magically interfaces with ours.
.
An example of a terrible movie with all three: INDEPENDENCE DAY (1996) which won Oscars for cliches.
One geek gets into the flagship of alien invaders and inserts a disc into the Microsoft-compatible disc drive to plant a computer virus and destroy them all.
