There cliche's that I hate and despise, like the Poor Girl/Rich guy love stories, The 1 man army cliche of many action movies and many more to mention. But for sure there are some movie cliche's that we actually appreciate. This time I will actually share some movie cliche that I actually love. I guess because despite of the fact they were cliche's they were not as overdone. The Perfect teacher-This cliche is used in the following movies and TV shows: To Sir With love, Dangerous Minds, Great teacher Onizuka, Gokusen, Sister Act 2,Small Voices and Dead Poet Society. The perfect teacher Cliche always centers around a teacher who is going to have a hopeless or maybe disrespectful group of students and this teacher will defy the odds and change the lives of his or her students. I really dont know why this formula stays fresh to me, Its also amazing that lots of these teacher stories true stories. ------- Tragic Villain- I have a huge fascination of Tragic villains,They use to be anti cliche but yeah they becoming cliche nowadays but despite of their cliche status. I still prefer than over the "Evil for no reason" Villains. I do love some purely evil villains but Tragic villains are so lovable. ----

The cliches that I love is when a cold- hearted guy feel in love to a naughty girl. I also like it when hate turns into love. I love those kinds of show but I prefer to those who do have a different kind of twist and those with a touch of romance and comedy.

I think Japanese writers always use that, The guy is always mysterious, cold and serious while the girl is always enthusiastic , cheerful and child like, Its like the girl always makes the boy go soft, one of the most cliche moment is that she will make him smile for the first time.

Hi! I love tragic love stories and partners that are both cool rather than the poor/rich story. Its really good if they realize that they should be enemies but they fell in love. I like those kind of love stories.

I love love stories- but of course that depends on the story. I am choosy when it comes to movies (no tv series- I don't have time) I prefer documentaries - I just love it. And I have collection/s of those movies as well.

I would start with hate first. There is one cliche that I really hate like a scene were two people who have not seen each other or looking for each other in one area and then in this one moment where the two of them are in the same picture looking for each other and they did not see each other and would look further away until they never see each other. I do not know the shortcut or the name of that kind of cliche but that is what I hate. The cliche that I like so much is "the ultimate girl/boy next door" or "best friend" "friends" something like that. Because chances of these happen in real life are like 1 to billion.

Another cliche I think I appreciate would be the cool villain, You know a villain who looks awesome, someone you wanted to be. Its like they were so awesome and badass you prefer him or her over the hero.

I like love stories that are simple in plot but the way the writers, directors and the actors have done the movie makes it a sophisticated one. I love Crazy little thing called love (First Love) a movie from Thailand. It's really nice and cute.

You mean less characters, the focus is between the 2 protagonist and its more innocent in nature. Asian romances were using that nowadays.

I don't really like cliche's. I like to be surprised, with a twist to the story, making it all an unique movie. However, with some, let's say it's a movie, good acting and good other stuff I can watch cliche's. Some goes to reading: if it's written perfectly I love to read it, despite it might be a cliche. Despite that, I don't prefer them over unique stories.

though we cant deny cliche's are more dominant than niche's I do live some niche storylines and anti cliche but the cliche's I mentioned though are tolerable for me cos they were less dragging and more flexible to some twist and turns.
