How? If they explained the entire plan before they did it you know it goes wrong. If they don't explain anything, then you know it will work out. Both of these suck.
So the best way to do it is have the plan explained while the plan is executed. This allows things to go wrong unexpectedly.

It's like a big "fuck you" to the original trope where the protagonist actually doesn't kill him because of that.

season 4 of Luther did a great job of this as well, whenever John spoke to the Cockney criminal guy
I loved their conversations over the phone, especially when he had a hit out on John
if they have another season I hope that guy comes back and helps him, in regards to getting him information

I used to hate this trope but it's actually pretty legit. Once you're suicidal and go to a bar, you become this chick magnet all of a sudden. Without even trying.

It sounds dumb and gimmicky, but when they nail it, it's pretty enjoyable. Fight Club, The Sixth Sense and Scrubs all did this pretty well.

In the episode when Christopher becomes a made man. After he gets a call from Paulie to get ready and dress sharp, Adrianna is afraid it's a trap, and Christopher responds by telling her she's seen too many movies. Later on, when Christopher shows relief once they get to the place, it's Tony who tells Christopher that he's been watching too many movies. Michael Imperioli was in Goodfellas.
This thread made me download all three Ocean's movies.
Any more comfy trope movies?

Are you serious? It's a really common trope that's pretty much impossible to have missed.

Watership Down, man. Watership Down.
Play Tzar if you want a game where everyone dies with a stock scream effect. Even the horses.
The montage in The Empty Hearse, where Watson's seeing patients. One comes in looking like Sherlock in disguise (specifically, he looks like Basil Rathbone in disguise from Hound of the Baskervilles) and is selling DVDs with titles taken from the Holmes story the episode is based on. Watson assumes it's Sherlock, but it turns out it's not.
That same episode also has a great bit OP would like where Sherlock says that Watson told him to "Fu--" and then a hard cut to Watson telling a patient to "Cough".
This actually is an ok lesson to tell, but not after you've just watched a 2 hour action movie of the protagonist murdering countless mooks.
The entire premise of the moral rings hollow when you combine it with the naturally high body count of an action movie, and yet they insist on only putting that concept into that genre.
I don't get it.
>characters about to begin having sex
>something interrupts them
Cop out did this best
>Terry Morgan doing every movie cop character impersonation
>keeps cutting to Bruce Willis saying what character and reacting
>does a John McClain line
>huh never saw that one
Such a great scene...1) fucking excellent music choice, 2) it restored an aspect of Holmes (underground fighter) that countless prior faggy adaptations had ignored, and 3) the fight prediction
>Protagonist an inch away from kissing love interest
>Right before it happens spergy fat kid in the group pops up between them saying "COME ON GUYS LETS GO!!"
He fucked a lot of shit up, anon. Race relations are back to like 1960s tier. Obamacare is shit and will implode next year if nothing is done. Faggot wants to take my guns. I mean, those are just the broad strokes.
>good looking, and socially well-adjusted character has hot girlfriend
>she's brutally murdered
>calm or upbeat music in a dramatic scene to create juxtaposition
Race relations are shit, I agree but I don't think you can blame Obama for a bunch of racist cops shooting first.
There aren't too many legit arguments for the failure of obamacare. Uninsured levels have dropped, the premiums for those of us already insured are rising more slowly than they ever have and I refuse to believe that the system is going to fail, although I don't have anything to back that belief up.
And guns? Are you fucking serious? Aren't you sick of this conversation?
>things start to go wrong
I don't know, I'd love to be able to flip a switch and see where we'd be if McCain & Palin had won the white house in '08. I suspect the GFC rebound would have been much, much tougher.
Reminds me of another favorite
>Protagonist has special ability, talent, gift, or item
>Is seemingly unique within the narrative
>Primary antagonist is revealed to have same, opposite, or complimentary gift
Honestly, if they had just done this scene from Moriarty's point of view, no Sherlock input, that would have been fucking amazing.
>Bad guys shown hanging out in warehouse/whatever
>Gang of good guys burst in guns blazing, murdering everybody
>This is shown in extreme slow motion while classical/opera music plays
I love this meme. i love how the media also pushes this narrative 24/7. Friendly reminder a ban on government funded propaganda in the media expired in 2013.
>Uninsured levels have dropped
>force people to sign up for your shitty insurance under penalty of fines
>brag people sign up
>the premiums for those of us already insured are rising more slowly than they ever have
Besides the initial hike that fucked a lot of people out of their plans? Care to somehow back up this incredibly broad claim which I don't even know how you could come to?
>I refuse to believe that the system is going to fail
It's set to if nothing is done. The young and healthy that were supposed to sign up and subsidize the old and sick aren't. If it isn't reformed or there is a huge spike of young healthy people signing up for it, it'll implode.
>And guns? Are you fucking serious? Aren't you sick of this conversation?
Yes. So once they fuck off and mind their own fucking business, I won't have to keep having it.
Hey man, I never used to be your typical Obama hater, but seriously the past like 2 years I've really seen through his shit and the shit he pulls. I'm not saying McCain/Palin were going to be perfect candidates, but god damn it'd be hard to fuck up harder than Obama.

One of my favorite Spongebob episodes, actually. Squidward has to deal with Spongebob's excited obnoxious self, wanting to deliver a pizza, and when the customer refuses he breaks down. Squidward loses it and slams the pizza into the customer's face.
Forgot the episode, been years since I seen it.
>group has designated asshole

>group thinks he's weird and too polite now

>asshole is pissed but now he's back to his old self
Hnnng I actually forgot about this, great scene from an otherwise forgettable movie. I respectfully disagree and think that having Holmes and Moriarty "converse" was better than just Moriarty, but overall you're right, wonderful trope.
>anything about Sherlock Holmes
>even remotely good
>it's a movie trope thread
>mongoloid yanks start arguing about black people and guns yet again
The director wanted to make the movie neither pro or anti anything. He cuts that last scene, retards still think it's a pronazi movie.
Nazi's = Niggers, both trash
Was it some masterpiece of cinema? No, and no one here is saying it is. But it's a god-tier flick, and anyone who thinks otherwise is objectively a detriment to the human species.
