Let me give you the example that inspired me to start this thread. Bonus points if you can guess the movie.
Code: Select all
It's an armageddon story. World is desolate, civilization destroyed. Our hero is standing in the desert, leaning against a post after a moving (i.e. horribly cliché) funeral scene, staring into the distance. The dust swirls around her in a way that only happens in the movies. One of the other characters walks away from the funeral and asks our hero "Got a minute?"
All I could think was "Who WROTE this DIALOG???" I mean, it's not like she's rushing off to pick the kids up from school, or to chair a board meeting. SHE'S LEANING AGAINST A POST IN THE DESERT!!! OF COURSE SHE HAS A MINUTE!!! HECK SHE MIGHT EVEN HAVE 2!!!
