The Contenders: Page 2

21 The quick dodging unemotional hero
22 The goofy villain
23 Be careful...
24 The misunderstood hero
25 Villain points gun at hero but doesn't shoot
26 Villain uses expensive simulations to show off plan
27 The car won't start

Why won't the car start THE KEY IS IN THE KEY SLOT START!

Wouldn't it just be easier to run. - egnomac

Maybe it's because it's OUT OF GAS?

28 Movie ends with the main character and love interest kissing
29 The overbearing, religious parent

Watch Bubble Boy and you'll see what I'm talking about.

30 Love just because

Glad I just brought this up to #28

31 Relying too much on CGI

It used to be awesome back in the days of Jurassic Park but somehow the advancement in technology has resulted in CGI looking LESS realistic. Not to mention there are times when a practical effect would work just as well if not better. Example: Those Raptor heads in Jurassic World (when they're in restraints and two characters are talking about them) didn't need to be CGI. They could easily have used animatronics in that scene and it would have been more believable.

32 The shaking cam V 1 Comment
33 The great speech
34 Everyone but the hero and love interest die

That's so dumb. It's not like it makes a difference to everyone else, dead or alive. It was new and acceptable when it happened in things like Shakespeare, but Titanic, so what?!

35 Celebrities popping out of nowhere
36 The sparkling teeth
37 Main character survives
38 Everyone magically survives
39 Villain is not dead
40 Villain stares intimidated in the face of danger
