Most every Epic Tracking Shot
— especially any time the camera "travels" through some object, like a telephone wire or dead body. Conspicuous CG
, hyper speed, overdramatic visuals, the mandatory whooshing sound (you know the one), the unsuccessful roller coaster sensation... Takes you straight out of the story, and all for what amounts to a simple transition. One of the many reasons I can't stand CSI.
To me, it just screams, "THIS IS EPIC DAMMIT," and I can't help but go, "Clicking a button on an answering machine is epic? All the closeups of CGI wires in the world doesn't stop it from being a lame plot device."
