whenever nic cage stars in a movie
Whan a movie switches between whispering and yelling constantly. I can't ever understand the whispering scenes and the yelling is too loud. PLEASE, keep it at conversation volume the whole film.

I hate how in romantic comedies how people fall in love in a short time period. Very few movies actually take the time to make it beleivable
Not enough references to aliens being real and the Yeerk/human confict.
White guys playing traditionally non-white roles like The Last Mohican and The Last Samurai. It just seems pretty arrogant.
anything with Jude law or Angelina Jolie
I would rather watch a dude watch paint dry versus sitting through a move with either of those pretenders.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
He growls as he storms the country,
A villain big and bold.
And the trees all shake and quiver and quake,
As he robs them of their gold.
i have a lot of movie pet peeves, but there was one i noticed while watching lincoln last night that kills me every time... the extended pause and thought sequence before a character makes a statement or gives a response.
for instance, character A will ask character B for his thoughts or opinion on something, then character B will pause for literally 2 minutes while the camera pans across character B's face and the rest of the room, and dramatic music rages in the background. then, after 30 pans across the room, character B finally speaks up and says, "yes!"
i ****ing hate that ****. nobody in real life takes a 2-3 minute dramatic pause to answer a question. find a better way to build suspense and drama, filmmakers!
How about when two characters are having a conversation, the camera cuts away and they're at a different location but resuming the discussion from the other location.
Example. Man talking to woman on a plane ride about her drinking problem. He tells her she should seek help while they're still in the air. Cut to them riding in the taxi and she offers a response to his comment.
Wtf did you discuss between? Who just stops a conversation only to pick up later from the exact spot?
