42 Essential 3rd Act Twists

Awesome breakdown of storytelling clichés — many of which occur in films, of course — from cartoonist Dresden Codak. A tiny taste:

The whole cartoon is here. Don’t be drinking anything while perusing it unless you want to ruin your keyboard.

I especially like the categories of “Shyamalan” and “Double Shyamalan.”

See also Codak’s newest toon, “Caveman Science Fiction” — hilarious.

    Thanks for the link, some of those are pretty funny (unreliable reader is my favorite). I think the name of the comic itself is Dresden Codak, and the cartoonist is Aaron Diaz.

  • LaSargenta

    Factoid of the day: Petard means “fart”. So, “hoist by your own petard”!

  • the rook

    even better, how many of those plot points have been used in Doctor Who over the years?
