Slow motion spinning is one of the lamest there are.

Yeah, I remember slow motion being listed as the best cliche by the Nostalgia Critic. Oddly enough, he did something where he mentioned his worst cliches as himself, Doug Walker, when it's usually the other way around. I think for me it would be some things like the big "No". There was this awesome compilation on YouTube (and some others made) but I think the original isn't available anymore because of well, copyright.

Somewhat related to what someone mentioned before:

This thing where the major villain is just about to beat the hero and carelessly goes to explain in great detail his entire master plan and whatever could've foiled it. Then the hero makes a sudden comeback and foils the plan by doing what the villain just revealed to him.

I'll admit that this usually shows lazy storytelling, but it can be quite hilarious.

Hmm. How about cars that seem to be made of explosives, and go up at the slight provocation? Or scenes where the good guy(s) always manage to outrun the fireball?

The cool guy pose on the cover of a movie or game. The cool guy pose is generally defined by a man (or woman) who stands with their back to the camera with their head facing down and to the left.

Have you even SEEN the Spy Kids movies? They were Robert Rodriguez movies, and he didn't die in ANY of them

Well, I refuse to see the 4th one, so I don't know about that one

As for mine, here's a small list:
Chainsaws in zombie movies
Stan "The Man" Lee cameo in all Marvel movies
Bruce Campbell appearance in Sam Raimi movies

There are probably more, but that's all I can think of right now

The awkward nerd guy who gets the hot girl at the end, it's an overused cliche but I love it because it gives me hope (I know it's lame.)

Epic last line transitions:

You know the moments in a movie when an enemy strikes and has almost won the fight and the protagonist and company is preoccupied trying to find a way to save his friends.

Awhile those who can't do anything about it discuss about back up plans that usually end up like this:

And what if they don't come Mr. President?

"Then God help us."

*next scene*

Of course he didn't die in those, they're kid's movies. But I guess I should have been more specific: Cheech Marin always getting killed in Robert Rodriguez movies that are rated R and also none of the following; Spy Kids, Shark Boy and Lava Girl, Shorts...or for that matter, any other movie that he directed that Cheech managed to not be in. gosh

Stupid, pointless rap songs about the movie during the end credits of late 80's, early 90's movies.

The Maniac Cop 2 rap is a fine example of this.

Hold on, just let me go find a random article off of TV Tropes...

one month later...

Okay, how about this one?

No matter what bigger picture a guy may be seeing, if it involves killing so much as one person, even to save the planet from being destroyed by a zombie virus, that guy is an evil man who must be put to justice.

Another funny but annoying cliche is when the protagonist has the chance to kill the antagonist, but he doesn't kill him. Because killing a man is wrong and never justifiable. Even if the man is the cause of hundreds of thousands of deaths, if you kill him, you're just as bad (if not worse) than him.

Man. Movie logic is so silly.
