I can't stand movie breathing.
Law and Order type dialogue always pisses me off, but that's TV and not movies. TV dialogue drops your IQ several points.
I hate it when they don't show tities

Person A: "The neighbor. Do you think she knows about the body?"
Why the **** didn't they just ask the more specific question in the first place?

White guys can play anyone from Samurai to women to Native Americans. Comedy is unnecessary.
I love horror movies but pretty much anything characters have to do to push the plot forward in many of them.
"We have to start the generator, let's send one guy."
"We have to get to the car, let's send one guy so he can drive back to us."
"We found the one place in the United States that doesn't have cell phone coverage."
"We can't possibly find anything to defend ourselves with against a guy who is carrying a chopping knife."
"This house is haunted. Let's stay here."
All perfectly reasonable to me.
- Happy secure endings. So lame....to the point where no matter how good a movie is, halfway through I'm not enjoying it because I can already see the "well the good guy wins this one somehow" ending.
- The I'm only saying this line to establish character dialogue. You see it 1,000 times. Character comes on screen 2 min into a flick and says some crap like "but Greg, I'm your sister AND I'm a lawyer, so....". NOBODY TALKS LIKE THAT. They throw in that garbage line for dumb audiences to learn about a character without having to figure it out.
OH NO, the car that was working in every other part of this bad movie is now not working AND the killer is RIGHT THERE!"We have to get to the car, let's send one guy so he can drive back to us."
The "one man army" b.s. One guy uses his martial arts skills to take on 20 people yet for some reason only 1 or 2 come at him at a time while the rest stand around hopping and striking fighting poses/stances.
