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

  • Improvised dialogue
  • Drug inspired imagery
  • Bittersweet separations
  • Bokeh effects
  • Jean Cocteau
I might remember it all differently tomorrow.
