An underrated post. Main characters are all happy. Life is sweet as they drive down the street with Ben E King playing. You know they are going to get smashed at the next intersection.Characters in a car getting side swiped. Seems like a writer's skeleton key. Where are we going to take this? How do we wrap things up? How can we add some drama?
Linda Cardellini as Velma from Scooby Doo owns this meme.What about the nerdy plain looking girl who has her hair tied back and big glasses, but then has a makeover where her hair is let down, the specs come off, add some lippy and she looks like a supermodel.
Usually said girl is quite obviously hot to begin with.
or kissing for the first timethe key jiggle when someone is after you. starting a car, opening a door.
in depth conversations between moments of action/carnage.
someone going off to save some other person right when they will run out of time before explosion/self destruction/etc.
i watched army of the dead recently, which includes all the above and more. it's basically one long trope.
Knives out when Christopher Plummer dies.One thing the takes me out of a movie these days is that metal in the movies has a metal on metal sound, even when it's not metal on metal.
Examples, when someone pulls a knife or a sword, or when a character is hit by a frying pan.
Also I don't get why Kryptonians try to hit each other with small Earth objects, like an iron beam, or glass windows, when they should be invulnerable to them.
Lol another trope parodied in Red Dwarf after Ace Rimmer escapes confinement in the nazi plane he’s being transported inWhy do villains explain in detail what their plan is/was to the hero?
Turn it on, spend 10 minutes searching for what you want, see something else that interests you, get distracted and go down a rabbit hole for the next hour before forgetting what you were looking for in the first placeIt would be great if computers worked in RL how they work on TV & movies. Turn it on and find what you want in 2 seconds.
