I am generally a pretty positive person.
But – there are a few things that really annoy me in films. So many in fact, that back in April of 2017 I wrote a blog post about it.
But unfortunately there are more I have to share, so get ready for volume two of my film pet peeves.
Weddings that go wrong
I just can’t handle it. I know – it proves that the day is about the love between two people and not the event blah blah blah; but all the people they know and love are there; they spent so much money and it’s a WEDDING. It’s too much.
Culprits: Brooklyn Nine-Nine
There is nothing more eighties/ nineties than slow motion in a pivotal moment in a film. It’s an effect that aged very badly, and just looks proper cheesy now.
Culprit: Jack Frost
Films that end on a freeze frame
Is this Windows Movie Maker?
Culprits: Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban
Good characters being killed off only to progress the main character’s plot
It’s so disappointing to see really cool characters eradicated from the story purely to focus the on how it affects the main character. It can be done well (for example when the death of a character is actually the plot of the film) but what I’m talking about it when a really interesting character with a lot of potential (often the female love interest) is killed for the pure purpose of changing things up with the other characters.
It’s just lazy.
Culprit: Deadpool 2
BLOOD. ON. THE SCREEN.
I included this one in my first pet peeves post but it really is the one thing that really gets on my nerves. I think it just looks so tacky!
Culprits: The Revenant.
What are your film pet peeves? A lot of people were quick to chip in with theirs last time, so at least we all know we’re not alone with it.
