The man who smiles when things go wrong has thought of someone he can blame it on.
Furthermore, I believe Carthage should be destroyed.
My favourite trope at the moment is the Manic Pixie Dream Girl.

How the bad guys are always British.
Any film with an actor that is too good for it. Usually that means we are in for a lot of scenery chewing. Double the amount if the actor is the villain. Or british.
Not a trope as such, but a film that clearly respects its audience.

Wait, so the posh, educated voice of an intelligent person = evil? That explains a lot about American thinking.
Lion: Hey Russ, you'll never guess what!
Russ: Yeah, I know! Magnus is a traitor! To think that he could accuse our beloved brother Horus of turning against us. Impossible! But don't worry. I have taken care of it, Horus asked me to destroyed Prospero and I have. Magnus shouldn't be bothering us again.
Lion: ... actually, I was going to say that Magnus was right. Horus has turned to Chaos, 7 other Legions have joined him and he has destroyed 3 Loyal Legions already!

Lol, being confident in what you know is pompous but deliberately trying to be a stupid ignorant is fine. I hate people. So insecure about themselves that they lash out at other people.
I like righteous fury. 'Justified' anger where you are entirely in the right. And then kick some ass. On the other hand this is abused a lot in film by creating a really contirved scenario just to ellicit this. Taken is an example. I loved it, but it's really a 'foreign is bad' film.
I can't really think of other tropes that are standout likes for me, I like them all in the right context.
"Humanity's Insignificance pales in comparison to its Ego." (Sir Rumplestiltskin)
"The capacity to think does not assign importance to your thoughts, it merely indicates you can." (Sir Rumplestiltskin)
After having spent entirely too much time reading tropes on TVTropes, watching any Star Trek series becomes...difficult. They are still enjoyable, but, now I notice all the tropes and sometimes, the 'drama' is more amusing than it should be.
I'm sure Adam Sandler would disagree. He's minted.
Hes very smart. Hes repeatedly gotten films with budgets over 100 mill that probably only took a weekend and a few packs of beers to make.
I'm always partial to a decent St Crispin's day speech.
Like the shark, the panda has millions of teeth which it uses like a hacksaw to cut through bone, candy, and fences
The Chinese believe that if you find a discarded panda tooth,
You have the power to summon Godzilla
