    Default Same main ideas

    Can you name the movies that shares the same main idea ?

    example :

    1. The others and 6th Sense (They're all actually dead)
    2. Deep Impact and Armageddon (Meteor that hit earth)
    3. Training Day and The Recruit (The tutor turns into bad guy)

    There is a reason why there will be same main ideas used over and over again... because majority of the people accept it, like and enjoy it

    I mean we do like the unexpected once in a while but not all the time. And sometimes the unexpected are not well received by the public. I still remember Sixth Sense... when people realize the twist in the end... then realize it was cool then thought it was stupid (Some do anyways). Or Blair Witch Project... when it first came out people thought it was real and then after it was a hoax... then people trash it to pieces.

    And about romantic comedy or romantic storyline in general... there is limited of how many ways you can tell show how relationship happens... unless you yourself never fell in love... you would think it is silly or stupid. For most people is an reminder how they fell in love and maybe that is why there are some that really like the romantic stories.
