Movie BS

Monster Movies: Depend on the basic premise that this gigantic or small creature has been in existence for this long without a constant food source until these idiots come along and supply it as long as the movie is going. What is that all about.

Ghost Movies: Depend on the basic premise that the ghost isn't going to get his ass kicked once his victims cross over to the other side. I know that would be my first motivation. Frigging ghosts.

Hostage Movies: Depend on the basic premise that those being held actually care about life. The entire mood changes when the assailant says you're gonna do what I say or I'm going to kill her and the response is go ahead we didn't know that bint anyway, or you can't shoot fast enough to kill us all. I was watching Firewall and assuming the husband didn't care about his family the entire movie would be over. I think Kaiser Sose handled it best He killed everyone including his family then went after the crime bosses. They then were without leverage against him, and subseqently died. Or the Schwarzenegger movie where they steal his daughter and he's all like so now you gotta do what we tell you to and he kills that guy.

Romance: The guy always gets the girl or the guy of their choice. In real life that crap doesn't work that way for a lot of people.

Action: Those guys never run out of bullets.

Feel free to add your stuff.


  1. Political movies: The more things change the more they stay the same.

  2. Action: A bang-bang, shoot 'em up movie guaranteed to keep my hubby entertained long enough that he won't use the remote for at least 90 minutes!

  3. The fact that regardless of how big the city is they never hit traffic and can always get from one side of the city to the next in a matter of minutes. LA for example.

    The fact that they never hit traffic lights and in these high speed shenanigans there are never any police officers to get involved. WTF is that all about.
