Fake time lapse. Usually during a scary action scene, where everything goes dark and silent in the middle of the action. Then the shot fades back in, its hours later and we're to guess how or why the threat went away.

Characters having an argument in an a car and saying "let me out here" suddenly. Regardless of where they are.

You'd think at least one wouldthen go, "actually not here, there's no way home from here and I'm not entirely are where I am. maybe just down the road a bit ".


Exactly. I would never want to get out of a car where there were no other options to make it home.


If you're hitchhiking and the driver asks you for a blowjob, it makes perfect sense. Unless you're up for that. wink

The Slo Mo Stroll of (usually) the Good Guys into the scene, typically striding side-by-side, with the appropriate overhyped theme/rock song. Lets you know the Cavalry has arrived and the stuff's gonna hit the fan.

Jackfu, I’m guilty of liking those particular scenes. I kind of like the build-up and tension. This set up probably became a cliché after the movie The Right Stuff, or maybe before that movie, but I kind of like these settings. However, these settings are certainly overused.

Here is one that doesn’t have a rock song or theme that I've always liked.

Thinking about The African Queen & The Bridge On The River Kwai that I watched a few weeks ago, films are very bad when it comes to dealing with leeches, you should just leave them, they drop off when they're full up, about 20-30 minutes. If you shake salt of them, they could regurgitate some nasty stuff into your veins, & if you use a burn them off with a cigarette, they could fall off & leave part of them inside you, maybe leading to an ulcer, which could prove deadly in a hot climate.

This has been a public information message.

...someone ends a heated argument at a posh dinner table by standing up, throwing their wadded-up napkin on the table right next to their plate, and only then being allowed to storm off in a huff? Saw this again in Gosford Park today, and was reminded how it's frequently used as a form of cinematic punctuation in tony period pieces set in high society.

And that scene in Stand by Me just magically became grosser.
