1. Dialogue. I even prefer over-written dialogue to flat, uninteresting dialogue. At least it's trying to be clever.
2. Looking through my favorite movies I seem to enjoy women who go insane over the course of the film
3. Manic Pixie Dream Girls. I know they're a fantasy construct, but I'm a nerd and I give into the fantasy. When they're problematic or trouble I tend to like them even more.
4. When something terrible happens and the film cuts to another character far away. There's no way they could possibly know what's happened - no Force powers - and yet they give a look like they somehow know things have changed forever.
5. When all the suspects are gathered together and the mystery is solved. (You asked for "egregiously corny".) I would also apply this to courtroom finales with everyone in the audience and boxing matches, though I'm a sucker for the characters in the audience. People watching the fight on TV is a different matter.

Thanks for Learning me a new term, i've been a 'Manic Pixie Dream Girls' nerd for sooo many years

1. Ambiguity / The Unexplained / The Unsaid
2. Hidden Gems
3. Socialist / Collectivist Themes
4. Distinct color palettes
5. Natural or No Dialogue

Was going to go with some broader terms like Naturalism, Surrealism, or even Modern Art, but then started to drill down a bit more.
