10 cinematic clichés that must die!

It's hard to disagree with this list, especially numbers 3 and 5.

The picture accompanying #9 is of Robin Williams from The Fisher King. It isn't a completely terrible movie, unless you count the scene where Williams strips naked and shows the full monty. Jeff Bridges does well with his role, but then he's usually good in practically everything he's in.

Evil Republicans make it in at #8. "All Republicans in movies or TV are evil. They’re all trying to cheat the public, start unnecessary wars, take away civil rights and turn the country into a fascist dictatorship. And, of course, it’s saintly Democrats who save the day." I suppose that if films want to be more truthful, they should portray Democrats as tax evaders with memory problems.
