A cliche that always drives me nuts...
So this rant is after watching the horror film “Ready or Not”.
When someone in a movie or TV show is sitting on top of someone else choking them, and the person doing the choking never notices that the person being choked is reaching for things to hit them with! Has no movie character ever looked over at the lamp or the million other objects the person is reaching for while they are choking them??? Or are they just so in the moment of strangling someone they have no clue what’s happening? Haha.
That is the most common cliche I’ve ever seen in movies...more than the car not starting, or someone walking in on something at the worst possible moment, etc.
I know I’m supposed to be rooting for the person being choked and want them to get the object to hit the bad person with...but it’s just so played out at this point. 99% of the time they are able to get the object and smack the villain in the head with it. I’ve only seen a few movies where the person being choked isn’t able to crack the villain in the head with a random object.
They have to start writing a different situation, or at least write something differently with the whole movie choking situation. Just had to get that off my chest. 🤣
