"“Actor Dialogue” ACTION SFX/MUSIC!!!
Yes! This drives me insane. Like I want to hear what they’re saying but I also don’t want my neighbors thinking the street is getting carpet-bombed all of a sudden."
"Added love story to an adaptation of a book with no love story."
"(cough) The Hobbit (cough).*"
"The bit where hackers take 20 seconds of furious typing to disable a countries infrastructure."
"Action scenes with lots and lots of cuts, that make it obvious (or appear like) the actors can’t do the fight choreography."
"When the premise for a major conflict in the movie is something that any sane person would have just said “oh no there’s a misunderstanding” and they all have a laugh and go on with their days… But instead it turns into some convoluted drama."
"When things explode for no reason. “Vehicle had a minor collision or simply rolls over and spontaneously explodes”."
"When one character who’s an expert in some field stops to explain the most basic concepts to another character who’s also an expert on the same subject."
"When the trailers reveal most of the plot."
"Fight scenes where someone makes a big blow (usually the villain), but instead of finishing the deal by smashing the brains out they start talking, bragging or some other cocky [email protected]#t. And whoops, the fight is back on like nothing happened."
"When the villain is always a few steps ahead of the hero for no reason. Somehow, the villain has managed to predict every move the hero and is going to make."
"When there is a timer and it takes longer to count down than the time that was called/shown. It drives me crazy.
Generic example, 50 seconds until a bomb explodes. Dialogue for 30 seconds. Timer is showing 30 seconds left. More dialogue for 40 seconds. Timer is at 5 seconds. Quick one-liner, bomb defused with one second to go."
"When it’s very obvious when someone isn’t actually having a conversation on the phone. They just say their lines without giving enough pause for the other person to respond. I also hate when you’re supposed to be looking at security footage but it’s clearly just a previous shot that’s had a filter put over it."
"“There’s no time… save yourself!” when there’s clearly ample amount of time for both characters to get to safety. made even worse by the fact that they usually waste a minute or more arguing about it, saying teary-eyed goodbyes, and making out before character 1 finally gets up and leaves."
"In horror movies: too many jumpscares."
"Unnecessary love scenes where the main character and a side character fall in love just cause, despite having known each other for like five minutes."
"When all you have to do is beat the boss and the entire army just collapses. Pretty much every alien and robot-using invasion has this hive concept."
