Everyone hates when certain thing happen in movies they watch, no exceptions. Here my personal examples:

- Anti-climatic and/or no resolution endings (Gamer)

- Sex scenes that come out of nowhere. Its really awkward (all of Uwe Boll movies)

- Editing magic in fantasy settings that is used when convenient to the plot and needs no explanation (Thor)

- Forced romance where the couple have no discernible reason to be together (Twlight)

- Really long and dragged OUT endings (Transformers series)

So what really pisses you off when you see in movies even if its a movie you like.

The Notebook was an awesome movie.

I hate it when in action movies someone drops a gun and it goes off which is virtually impossible. Also, getting knocked out unconscious in movies isn't as dangerous as it would be in real life. If someone hit you hard enough to make you black out, then chances are you will be seeing some type of brain or nerve damage.

I despite Dutch Angles in films (refer to the 1960s Batman television series if you don't know what Dutch Angles are). I also dislike pretentious "over-direction", where a director strives to be unique or creative, to the detriment of a cohesive story. The classic example of this is Natural Born Killers.

Mine isn't so much with the movie but the people in the theater itself...if wanted to hear you talk for 2 hours I'd call you. Why pay to get into a movie and then talk through the whole thing!

No it isn't. it's happened.

if you still say it's impossible say that to the countless people who've died from dropped guns firing off.

In slasher movies when the hero finally knocks down the killer and he's hurt........then they run away. Get down there and cut that b!tch.

Bad guys can't aim.

People jumping through glass like it's no big deal and with out a scratch afterwards.

making a movie based off of an already established brand or company license and then change the material to fit an audience that won't know something has been changed. (damn comic movies that I love, always making me upset)

-Ya bad shooting (on both good and bad sides)

-casting the same person to fill two or more iconic roles in movies involving the same medium (greenlanter/deadpool, humantorch/capamerica).

or switching actors to play the same role in multiple films (bruce banners, although I liked them all, warmachine etc.)

-pointless sex scenes just to have them (watchmen was super guilty of this)

-anything with Dane Cook in it

-making sequels that have nothing to do with the movie series itself (halloween 3, american pie)

-I hate people who force themselves to like movies because they think they have to like them. (tyler perry movies, any movie with an ethnic flavor that is horribly stereotypical or pushes to one main demographic) (I'm danish but I don't like all movies about vikings, but erik the viking was definitely one of the best movies ever)

White Americans are so misrepresented in movies
 
They always have some good, high paying 9-5 job, live in a roomy, fancy house or apartment in their mid-late twenties or early thirties, have their life together except for one crucial detail (usually what the movies about) Everyone is marginally intelligent, well groomed etc...they go on dates with other super attractive white people
 
I am white and grew up in a racially diverse ghetto and have never met people like this...If I did, I would be inclined to mug them for having such an easy life...

The "Idiot Plot" where in a given film, everyone is a moron (mostly due to the arbitrary limits imposed by the screenplay) and says the wrong thing at exactly the wrong time, though all problems would be solved if someone just came clean.

For example, in the Adam Sandler movie Just Go With It, the entirety of the film doesn't have to take place, at all. If Adam Sandler straight up confesses his womanizing cad schtick to Brooklyn Decker 15 minutes into the film, you'd be able to roll credits right then and there. Instead, because he's a moron, he crafts a lie & goes out of his way to get everyone else to take part in this farce, even though it's totally obvious that he's lying every step of the way.

  • Unnecessary race changes if the film is based off of a specific source material (Kingpin from Daredevil. I like Michael Clarke Duncan, but they really couldn't get a James Gandalfini in there?)
  • A beginning that isn't remotely interesting and fails to lure me in within the first 10 minutes (Ang Lee's Hulk)
  • Really bad actors and actresses who continue to get work because lord knows why (Any/all actors and actresses from Twilight)
  • Tyler Perry (No explaination required)
  • Unnecessary remakes/reboots (Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, etc.)
#43 Posted by sesquipedalophobe (4691 posts) - - Show Bio
  • James Cameron.
  • Britney Mur---oh wait. Structuring films around seemingly hopeless elitists you still hate till the credits roll. The characters only learn to be better people to fit their agendas and because it's convenient, not as an actual evolution of characterization.
  • Happy, magical endings.
  • Little bloopers left in films. I know they do these things on purpose. For instance, in that crappy movie Jumper the father sat outside his son's door begging him to come home (or some nonsense), however he ignored the fact that the latch was on his side that time.
  • CGI in certain films. Godzilla worked fine without CGI for decades.
  • Child actors. They aren't adorable or say the darnedest things. Even the good child actors have some flaws in their performances. I vote that Hollywood only use German Shepherds to play kids, because they're better listeners.

Now the one thing that has always bugged me is cheesy pet scenes in world devastation movies.

  • Independence Day: Dog in tunnel jumps into Vivica Fox's arms, just out of the fire's reach.
  • The Day After Tomorrow: Dog runs into room before the temperature drop spreads throughout the library and the door is shut just in time so everyone can drink hot cocoa.
  • 2012: The Russian lady dies in a chamber being quickly filled with water, but she pushes her little dog through. I actually heard my sister give a sigh of relief that the dog had lived, but three days prior to that she ran over a dog in the road and didn't seem too concerned.

  • Unnecessary 3D re-releases when 3D adds nothing to the film (see Titanic)
  • Casting actors who don't fit the part because they're attractive (happens more often with women)
  • Overuse of contemporary music in the soundtrack (a few songs here or there are fine, but most movies don't benefit recent music from in every other scene)
  • Rich white people problems in romantic comedies ("oh, please feel sorry for me, I don't have enough time to balance my job as a business executive with my desire to be with my high school sweetheart!")

I agree with your point in general, but I thought Duncan did a good job with the part. In fact, it was the only thing I liked about the movie.
