Things from the 2017 Black List loglines I never want to see in movies ever again

-Assassins
-Biopics
-"Changing the course of human history"
-The CIA
-Comas
-Drug smuggling 
-The Mafia
-The CIA
-Multiple personality disorder as a plot engine
-Murder as a plot engine
-A "new appreciation for life" as a climax
-"One last assignment"
-Serial killers
-Terminal illness used as a plot device
-True stories
-The CIA

Edit - oh, ono had this covered
Yes, but your list sums it up oh so succinctly!  :yabbse-thumbup:

I haven't used that emoticon in beards.  I missed it.

The thing is, most people are simple, so I get why they like those things and why most writers put them in movies.  The Black List is all encompassing, and not exactly "artsy".  So it's a challenge to find "good" stuff in there.

A little late, but... please tell me one of the characters is named Ruth.

Scanning the opening pages of Harry's All Night Hamburgers and I'll be damned if I'm not charmed. I may just read the whole thing!
