Your asking for specifics words, when my issue is the general incoherency of the words and the disproportionate respect/importance of them. I can try and give an example if it will help you to understand what irritates me.
To start with, lets keep it to realistic settings that are for the most part supposed to reflect the word as we know it. So Kythias points about how it may make sense 'in setting' are irrelevant. As I said with my explanation of Dishonored, I don't count it's mystical elements as woo since they have an importance that is proportionate to their presence.
Okay, for an example, a western movie where the main character is injured and found by a Shaman. The Shaman heals him, and before they part ways, he says something to the effect of "Your body is weak, but your spirit is strong, like a wolf. Look to that, for it shall guide you"
Now, the dialogue itself isn't the issue. In the scene, as I've typically experienced it, there is usually a very somber and serious tone, often with a drawn out conclusion, like watching the shaman leave to a sunrise with very moving music meant to evoke reaction from you, as if something very important just happened. The events end up having a lasting effect, as they are referenced by other characters as if they were an otherworldly event that lended great or new meaning to the main character.
My issue is that the scene is trying so very hard to make me respect this or to see importance in it, and it never succeeds. My issue isn't with the attempt itself, it's the consistently limp execution, as if there was some need to impart this kind of message, but rarely a successful attempt.
