1. Never ever give the evil overlord villain a common name i.e. Frank or Bob.
2. The hero must always be a little wiener who only survives because the villain feels sorry for him.
3. Average villains can only stay on-screen (and alive) for approximately 6.3 seconds.
4. The little wiener hero always gets the girl whereas the brawny good looking guy (who actually did all the work) ends up with a furry Wookie.
5. Thw effects have to fairly good, but not so good the they actually entice the viewer into enjoying the movie.
