All time greatest clichés part 2
with the first thread being closed for some reason http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000004/thread/49923 and being unbelievably long I'm starting it up again. I credit the original thread the poster by the name of Good-Will.
edited: looks like they eliminated the thread.
I'll start it out with the definition of cliché:
noun 1. a trite, stereotyped expression; a sentence or phrase, usually expressing a popular or common thought or idea, that has lost originality, ingenuity, and impact by long overuse, as sadder but wiser, or strong as an ox.
2. (in art, literature, drama, etc.) a trite or hackneyed plot, character development, use of color, musical expression, etc.
3. anything that has become trite or commonplace through overuse.
4. British Printing. a. a stereotype or electrotype plate.
b. a reproduction made in a like manner.
adjective 5. trite; hackneyed; stereotyped; clichéd.
So if you've noticed something in a movie that has been used, abused, and over used please add to the list.
I'll start it out with something I call Time passage measured by facial growth. This device is used to show how much time has passed by measuring the growth of beard and/or mustache. The growth usually doesn't last very long passed the initial scene with the character in it. It is a favorite used by television shows. It can be used with females and a new hairstyle but less successfully.
There are only 10 kinds of people. Those who understand binary and those that don't.
