Slapstick isn’t funny. It’s entertaining though.
Romance is stupid and unnecessary in movies unless it is crucial to the plot. (Is this unpopular?)
I don’t like most musical films. They’re just too cheerful and romanticises a historic era sometimes, and probably most appeal to middle aged mums. However, there are some musicals I do genuinely do enjoy.
Fan-service is god-awful bollocks and ruins the aesthetic of a film other than to please horny teenagers. That ruins a lot of anime. Please, young-adult oriented anime where the female characters aren’t sexualised and look like a bug-eyed Disney character please?
I’m bloody tired of Every. Single. Fantasy. Story… taking place in a world modelled after medieval Europe. Like, how about a world modelled after imperial Asia, or… ancient Mesopotamia. Or, god forbid, pre-contact America?! Just stop trying to be like Tolkien.
What the flying fuck are the good plot advancing reasons for sex scenes other than to please the bloody audience?!
Terminator 1 had a sex scene to explain how John Connor was conceived to keep the time loop stable.
