    All kungfu movies use the same format/storyline:

    Hero does not know martial arts.... Villain and his minions come to a village to harass people... Hero intervened, gets his ass beaten up... Hero encounters/meet a disheveled old man know is a kungfu master.... Kung Fu master teaches Hero Kung Fu style that was never seen before.... Hero challenges villain boss to a duel to death... Hero almost lost, then Kung Fu master shows up and join the fight.... Villain boss dies.... The end

    This is one of my favorites!

    Car jumps a trailer, river, bridge, dirt pile, whatever in slow motion yet!! It hits and you can see the whole front end is destroyed, possible frame bent, it more than bottoms out but yet keeps on running at top speeds!

    ever notice when a speeding car runs up on a parked car they just never collide
    the moving car hits the back end of the parked car and flips over to the cameras rt side?

    or in a chase scene in the woods "the girl" always trips and falls?
    or anytime a girl cries to our fallen hero he slowly gets up and wins the fight.
    oh and in hollyweird EVERYBODY is a kung fu master.
    then in shows like the walking dead every shot is a perfect head shot.
    how come in alien movies its alway them starting shit first, never the humans.
    or like in porn movies the girl is always willing to let the neighbor girl come
    over and join in but when you try that shit at home :run::run::run:

    If they are on the ground death is always assumed to be the case.

    Girl screams but makes no real effort to get out of the way.

    The hero always knows when he's being attacked from the back and always handles it accordingly.

    Have we mentioned said hero has to pause for a tuff guy one liner before killing said bad guy.
    Wouldn't it be great to go thru a whole movie, have said hero do this then get shot in the head while he is being a smart ass?

    My other favorite is the 90lb girl with consistent and multiple one-punch knockout power on 285lb 6'4" men.

    The hero/villain jumps into a nearby car and speeds off, never having to adjust the seat so he can reach the pedals (Tom Cruise) or not have his knees pressed up against the wheel (most of the others)
