Default What movie plots are you sick & tired of?

For me, it's gotta be the movie plots where a retired bad ass with insane fighting and gun skills is forced out of retirement to fight a threat that only he can stop for some reason.
And I'm sick & tired of movies with useless love side stories. Y'know? Where the love angle doesn't progress the story whatsoever but it's add in there anyway for the shits & giggles.

Girl gets treated like shit and doesn't trust men. Great guy comes along and gives her the world but she finds a way to push him away. Girl comes to her senses and they have a big make up scene. Cue happily ever after.

Guy sees a girl he likes, then finds a way to get a hold of her, they fall in lover and later on have some kind of problem. They fix the problem, fall in love again and the movie ends.

Any superhero movie, especially Marvel.

Act 1

Introduce villian
Introduce hero
Keep it light and funny

Act 2

Villian powers up
Hero is down and out?


Act 3

Hero goes to fight the villian
Big fight with explosions.
.
World saved.

Post credits scene: Whatever


Comic relief through witty one liners to end every scene.




Nolan's Batmans >>>>>>>>>> any other super hero franchise

Movie starts off with a person or even multiple people, they do things, and then some other stuff, and then the movie ends.

There is no originality in the movies I have been watching, everyone starts of with foreplay, a little bit of fellatio and cunnilingus which leads to two or three different positions and finally the happy ending. It's all the same.

Superhero films with the inevitable climactic battle through the urban canyons of Manhattan, unimpressive CGI (still looks like pixar) , and camerawork from someone who obviously suffers from tourettes. Enough already.

The superheroes and villains could take the fight to the middle of the friggin Sun, the human leads with no powers will still inexplicably find themselves in the thick of the action every. Single. Time.

Teens/young adults go to some sort of abandoned location (e.g. cabin, house, warehouse). Along the way, someone/something happens that warns them they're headed into danger. The group ignores it. They reach their destination, joke around, usually mock the loser of the group, who they decided to invite out anyway, and then the couples spread out for sex time. Each one slowly dies painful deaths until the lone loser is left to either survive or die.

Nolan's trilogy is the exception, not the norm. DC still put out more garbage than Marvel. Can't just focus on the good and forget...

Batman and Robin
Batman Forever
Steel
Catwoman
Superman Returns
Jonah Hex
Green Lantern
Man of Steel

Hell, DC's best comic book movies outside TDK trilogy are from their imprints not the main comics. Stuff like V for Vendetta, Road to Perdition, History of Violence, RED.
