Damn I hate the funny fat best friend or the quirky black guy on the side or the smart Asian kid that has a cameo, like damn marginalised people can be the main characters in stories that aren’t just about their trauma!
Jumping/being thrown through a window and emerging without any cuts.
Teenagers being ripped beyond belief looking like they’re 26.
Taking off your glasses and dressing smart is supposed to make you go from a 5 to a 10
oh gee you were hot all along!
When two characters walk into a house or apartment, having just went to a restaurant.
“Wow, that was a great dinner!” “Yeah, I am really stuffed!”
Did they not talk at all in the car???
Characters about to kiss for the first time — get interrupted. Every damn time.
Female characters only written to display how they’re a strong feminist female. It’s f***ing cringe. If you want an actual strong female character, then show that through her actions as a person without drawing back to meta s**t. Not everything has to be “wow and she is a FEMALE doing this.” It’s counterintuitive and only disvalues her character.
Getting shot in the shoulder is practically a lucky break. You can continue fighting!
Having sex and then hopping out of bed and just throwing your clothes on and running to work…
Sex is messy. Clean that sh*t up first.
I hate it how people who were shown to be of relatively limited means are somehow always able to buy last minute plane tickets across the globe when it furthers the plot.
