Worst Movie Cliches

Watching the new Batman movie made me review the best ways to ruin a sure blockbuster.

The Top TenXW

1All the main characters magically survive
2It was all a dream

That really pisses me off, on some movies that do this I think to myself I sat through this piece of S/ only find out it was just a dream its like a huge middle finger to the viewers is what it is. - egnomac

3Love interest is kidnapped

Who hasn't seen that a thousand times. - egnomac

So stupid. I just hate the damsel in distress bullcrap. I mean, I'm no feminist but I think it's pretty damn sexist.

Oh please it's the most oldest cliché in the book. And why is the female usually portrayed as weak, she doesn't even try half the time either.

4Unoriginal/meaningless villain deaths
5Ally gets mind-controlled, hero says fight it, ally says he can't.
6Villain holds gun at hero, tells him everything, hero kills villain
7Hero sacrificing himself
8Villain tells hero big plan
9People shoot guns, but miss their target every time.

They must have lousy aim or were just really really drunk during filming. - egnomac

10Ally dies, hero is sad, ally comes back to life

The Contenders

11Deus ex machina

"So how did you defeat him? " "there was a screwdriver on the ground, something he's allergic too. I threw it and it amzingly hit him in right in the teeth and he blew up! " - Puga

12Extensive soul searching
13Kissing at the End

More like in the middle or some time before the movie ends
