2. Someone Is Going to Run Directly at the Screen (and Probably in Slow Motion)

It’s not fair to chastise Michael Bay for having explosions in his movies. Lots of directors have explosions in lots of their movies because explosions are objectively awesome. However, not every director includes a shot of people running towards the camera in slow motion — sometimes with a big boom in the background, sometimes not — in every single one of their films. It happens in The Rock when Nic Cage blows up the last virus canister. It happens in 13 Hours like five times, and it happens in Pain & Gain at the beginning of the movie when Mark Wahlberg is tackled by cops.
