    I suppose once upon a time way back in the dim and distant past, it was new and it worked.
    I'm not suggesting that you're getting old in the tooth, Doddie, but it's still new and it still works for a whole bunch of people.

    The hero who stays in a shabby/chic loft - open plan (bed in one corner and motorbike in another), exposed brickwork instead of plaster, 5m ceiling height, huge old factory windows - where do they get the money to heat these places?

    They don't have to heat them - they all live in LA.

    Kids that are up, perfectly dressed with their bags packed ready for school while eating breakfast in the morning while the parents come downstairs after getting just themselves ready just before the kids need to leave for school.

    Every xbox/playstation game in the movies is played by repeatedly and over-enthusiastically pressing buttons with your thumbs despite the game being a FPS where your meant to be using the trigger buttons on the controller. While every game can become a 2 player just by handing another controller to someone else, mid-game, who immediately starts bashing buttons too.

    When someone has a job interview they are told immediately after it ends that they got the job and that they start on Monday.

    Have your hero and your villain played by the same actor but give the bad guy a goatee beard to make it clear he is evil.

    Laptop batteries never die.

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    Terrified heroine backs away from where she thinks the baddie is, peering into the scary shadows. Where is he? Where is he?...

    And backs straight into him!

    Brilliant when it was Pip and Magwitch in David Lean's Great Expectations. Done to death ever since.

    It's the people who are new, not the plot. That was given to Moses with the Commandments.


    In the old westerns all the main characters meet a girl who always dreamed of "settling down back east, in a little house with a picket fence and have kids"...blah, blah, blah.
    In Barffsville, no doubt.

    The sporting hero who's glory days may be behind him and has let his team down recently steps forward in the 'big game' and puts in the performance of his career.

    And, particularly relevant to films from 15 - 20 years ago, the download rate of said files is always far, far beyond what was available at the time, especially to Manhattan (or American mid-West) basements where the heroes always tended to live.

    Police dramas or films where they are carrying out a particularly dangerous raid. Despite there being a dozen SWAT-style guys in full body armour, masks and helmets, toting assault rifles, they're only allowed to follow behind the two lead detectives who are in a t-shirt or short-sleeved shirt and maybe a flak jacket, with their pistols.

    New York police stations always have a crotchety desk sergeant with an Irish background.

    Bank transfers to international accounts have a progress bar on the computer screen.

    Folk that don't like each other but have to work together end up best pals, usually confirmed at a key moment in the film when they have the chance to be mean but do the right thing instead.

    Siblings referring to each other as 'brother' or 'sister' in early conversations rather than using their names.

    And why those nasty baddies have the inexplicable need to explain their intentions and plans to their nemesis before he then goes and ruins their evil plan.

    The old wino remembers a significant fact. The landlady finds the business card or photograph as the car drives away and yet the driver always witnesses them signalling in the rear view mirror. Any child with the story of a ghost helper is telling the truth. The million to one shot to save the planet wins. American muscle cars can turn into alleys as wide as Ptries wallet on a "dime" at 70 mph.

    Whenever aliens invade the Earth the good guys miraculously can understand their technology and inevitably use it against the aliens to save the planet.

    Not a cliche as such, but guys in movies always go to a bar, have a few whiskies and drive home yet itís never part of the story and usually they make it home ok. Whatís the deal with that? Is the drink drive limit in America a lot higher than here and you could have 3 or 4 whiskies and drive legally?

    The bullied kid always eventually summons the strength and courage to fight back and humiliates the bully in front of his friends.

    Previously bullied kid becomes hugely popular and gets laid by the best looking girl in school. Probably.
