    Tell you what really annoys me, perhaps unreasonabley so.

    When someone is playing a console in a film/on TV/in an advert and they are BATTERING the controller. What game are they fucking playing? They are beating the shit out of this controller and there is the odd 'pew pew' noise coming from the machine.

    Or they have a handheld and are twisting it around every half second and turning it upside down while completing 200 actions per minute with their thumbs.

    Hot wiring cars or sticking a screw driver in, especially modern cars, not possible.

    Sex scenes, do they nip out for the the pill in the morning while on the run or do they live in a world were condoms are part of the getting ready in the morning routine.

    When a character could just say what happened, problem solved but they don't.

    I hate that too. And perceptible movement beyond very subtle finger movements is unrealistic basically.

    I hate it when you see a guy (normally a simple looking sort) with a thermos flask and nine times out of ten it'll be sausages in there.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    How else could you keep sausages hot?

    I heard it could even be a sausage sandwich.

    Punching someone sounds like a clap rather than a "thkkk"
    Not a film but this really wound me up in a third series episode of The Sopranos I watched recently, where Ralph beats that stripper to death and the over the top punching sound effects make it sound more like a Vic & Bob sketch than a brutal beating.

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    No one ever seems to lock cars, unless there's a plot reason for it, Chekov's Car Keys I suppose you'd call it.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    I'm sick of horror movies where everyone dies in the end and the bad guy/monster is still living thus leaving nothing resolved. Its easily overtaken the old cliches where you could guess the survivors in about 10 mins.

    Or just a final shot of whatever it is not being dead after all. Just has zero impact now.

    Similarly the whole "it gets back up" thing in the final fight sequence. I don't even think for a second it's really dead the first time these days - that hasn't caught me out in twenty years.

    @whatfruit very true. Although the blind side is actually a true story.

    @RobTheBuilder

    I think a recent good example is the Inbetweeners UK vs US. Spotty/skinny kids in UK version (as intended) but jocks in the US one (at least what I could see from a trailer).

    Also I can't stand the way nerds are depicted in say Big Bang Theory. Clean shaven peach skinned dudes and chicks in colourful yet trendy/clown outfits. Not the black wearing pale neckbeards of reality.

    Similar is true of most movie fights - our hero will usually take a beating, before somehow rising to triumph, displaying mighty strength and skill that could have avoided the initial beating.


    Women in action movies in high heels. Any women in peril in high heels. You cannot successfully fight or flee in high heels. Kick them off. Now. But no, they never do. Fucking idiots.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    People in horror films pointing out horror cliches. Like the black guy saying "oh no, the black guy always dies!".

    Turn on the TV and immediately a newsflash extremely relevant to the character will come on.

    Brilliantly spoofed on Arrested Development.

    "Think of the impact that would have had if it had come on straight away!", or something to that ilk.

    I swear Arrested Development wasn't always so meta until close to the end.

    Get bent.

    News channels explaining what is going on. Awful in every film.

    Life sucks, crap job but my apartment is amazing.

    The mirror, fridge door open then close shock that has went from scary to bluff then bluff to scary and now bluff bluff. Exhausted all possibilities.
