10. Alternative weapons
Lightsabers, identity discs, oriental weapons and lasers are all welcome breaks from reality in cinema for me.
9. Kid heroes
Codifiers of most anime and family movies, I love it when the under-18 crowd get out to make a difference.
8. Smooth, bright colors
Why wash out your movie when you can fill it with rainbows and walls of color?
7. Vehicle chases
Whether it's cars, motorcycles, boats, or even aircraft, vehicle chases are staples of action movies.
6. Shaky cameras
Ever since I watched Star Trek as a kid, shaky cameras are perfect to simulate movement.
Want to prove your hero or villain means business? Make a hat part of their attire.
4. Creature companions
Pikachu, Chewbacca, or just your loving dog-creature companions are great for conflicts in movies.
Nothing makes you feel like a kid again like stuff blowing up.
2. A vocalizing chorus
Music that talks helps pull you into whatever emotions you go through.
1. Ramping (slowdown/speedup of footage)
The technique that accentuates your movie in the best action scenes.
