six things that annoy me in the movies
1. people dying instantly from a stab wound to the stomach
2. women becoming beautiful by removing their glasses
3. luggage that is clearly empty
4. tom cruise
5. people not saying goodbye at the end of phone conversations
6. sex scene/music montages


Montages get more interesting if you try to classify them. I have developed a taxonomy of montages, among them the "falling in love" montage, the "having an epiphany" montage, and the "triumphant life reversal" montage. Seeing the movie Baby Boom for the first time this fall helped me develop labels for montages I'd never even dreamt of.
