Top Ten Movie Cliches We Are Getting Tired Of


The Top Ten

1 Being saved at the last minute

Its gotten really predictable. And not to mention really old. But I don't hate it. - nintendofan126

2 "Mexican standoffs"

What does this mean?

3 Villain dying at the last minute
4 Happy endings

That's the one thing I don't like about Disney movies. Can't a few of them have a somewhat sad ending for once? - Minecraftcrazy530

I've literally had enough - HATOOTEH

Isn't that a good thing that come in life is happy endings in movies? we already have bad things to worry about...

5 The poor being good and the rich being bad

Remember the movie "Robin Hood," by Disney? - nintendofan126

6 The dog dying

Where the red fern grows

7 Mean cheerleaders

Also that they apparently have to be pretty

8 America always saving the day/world
9 There is always a villain

That just makes it interesting I mean I am not going to watch the protagonist go to the shopping mall, and have it all easy. - diehardfan

10 The shaking cam

Uuuug, if I knew this was on the list, I would've voted. I am SO TIRED of shaking cameras.

One of the biggest movie cliches, like in found footage and cinema verities, such as the Blair Witch Project, Battle L.A., and Earth to Echo.
Even documentaries and reality shows are filmed this way.
Home videos are especially examples of shaky cam, and so are many YouTube videos.
It’s because our hands are not perfectly steady as they shake due to muscle fibers contracting and/or expanding and changing shape at different intervals in response from the brain.
Stress and fatigue intensify them as we exert energy and stress from holding, doing, or using things.
We can minimize tremors by breathing and concentrating, as well as healthy nutrition and staying hydrated and getting good rest, but we cannot completely get rid of them for good.
They’re there forever and involuntary. - Gregory

The Contenders

11 The man and woman always have to hook up
12 The liar revealed
13 Comic relief trios
14 Overprotective Dad
15 Bratty teenage daughter
16 Small, annoying sidekick
17 Androgynous villain
18 Brooding pretty boy
19 Half naked woman
20 The decoy villain

Disney has gotten really bad about this in recent years

21 Villain has to kill hero, hero falls in love with villain, villain falls in love with hero, villain saves hero's life, villain turns hero, they are a couple

I have seen this a million times... -Alexa The Eevee
