I'm feeling mildly irritated today so lets try to find something to bitch about. What kind of pet peeves do you have in movies? Is it stereotypical plots? Non-uniformity of props or story lines? Over-used actors *cough* *Will Ferrell* *cough* from many other films just for the profit? My HUGE pet peeve are movies that require a child to be babysitted the whole way, as in, has to be rescued or to not die from cancer or what have you. Generally the child has to live throughout the whole story. I don't like that. I find it very annoying. To me it seems to destroy the story and also is quite predictable (Transporter 1 was great Transporter 2 with the child saving was *myeh*). They just put the child in there for sympathetic reasons. For once! Can't the child die in a brutal and tragic way? I want to see a babysitting movie scripted like The Departed; The hero goes through great lengths to save the child and in the end he resuces the kid and there is a crowd cheering and celebrating his safety, but wait!! What's this? A long blonde haired lady casually approaches the kid smiling and says to him "Falconey says hi" (maybe a little Batmanish), pulls out a 12 gauge and blows the child 20 feet back. You want to stun audiences do so in that manner. So the moral of the story is: Don't leave me with your child But enough about me, what about you?
