Automated parking lot fights... they are too contrived for me

What movie cliché drives you crazy?...
> punches goon
> goon falls over
> that's enough of that guy, through to next room
People breaking through glass windows without getting a single scratch.
Turning the TV on and immediately seeing the relevant news report.
When the main character decides not to hurt the main villain of the movie, but is totally ok with slaughtering hundreds of their minions/workers
That last one reminds me of this Kevin Smith's first movie scene...


Lastly
Feedback whenever anyone approaches a microphone, then the sound is suddenly 100% perfect.

Rh is always pointing these out.

That was actually a sort of neat part in Deadpool. Deadpool DID kill all the minions, but he gave them a chance to just leave, as if they were real people who could make choices. And at the end he killed the main bad guy (even though one of the other good guys told him not to).

Every once in a rare while the minions will be given a chance to leave the fight "you're not getting paid enough for this" or "no hard feelings" or "I'll pay you more"... that last, I believe, is how Jayne got hired on the Firefly.

I do recall a few movies where the minions switched sides.

The 120 lbs. Girl beating up a 190 lbs. bad guy with a few kicks and punches.

3-4-5-6 bad guys attacking the hero - one at a time.

Guys running from bullets.

The bad guys spraying the hero with 500 rounds from their automatics and missing, while the hero picks them off with pistol.

Heroes getting shot in the shoulder and then shrugging it off or ending up with nothing more than their arm in a sling.

Bob Dole was shot in the shoulder and spent 6 months in the Hospital and never got full use of his left arm.

People getting "knocked out" and then waking up with no ill effect. In fact, its difficult to "knock out" people with a gun butt to the head. You either don't knock them out, or you kill them or cause brain damage.

I wish I had one of those computers that the movie people have. Man, they're fast.

Virtually all depictions of surveillance, following on foot or vehicle, are horseshit. But, anyone in a profession hates how their profession is portrayed on the big or little screen.

I have many porn movie beefs but I'll keep those to myself.

If your doing martial arts, they train you for that.

"If your doing martial arts, they train you for that."

Yeah, Bruce Lee was a master at it.

Good thing no one ever attacked him 3 at once.

rcocean said...

Hey guys we outnumber him 6 to one. What should we do?

You dummy. Follow, SOP. Attack one at a time. Under no circumstances, will two men attack at the same time.

We want a fair fight. So, one at a time.

And the graphics are great!

Romcom with guy with beautiful wife decides to be unfaithful.

Romcom where one of the couple is addicted to drinking.

They mean the writers couldn't come up with anything.

Movies that have hackers in them that type perfectly in command line or with user interfaces no one has ever seen before or could even be coded in any meaningful way. Also, when satellite pictures are used and then are zoomed in real fast and all the pixels get resolved as if your are looking at it crystal clear.

Movies or TV shows showing people drinking hard liquor and drinking it like water. That shit burns people and you don't even react to it.

There was a time I could pour bourbon down almost like water. That's the Irish in me.
