Time for a little rant.
Sorry about that but sometimes some things have to be said.
I'm tired of lazy genre writing!
I'm not going to give names or titles here. I'm tired of lazy genre
writing in movies, TV shows and comics. And that goes especially for movies.
Lazy genre writing, you know how hack writers go at it: choose a genre,
find a reasonably intriguing hook, sketch out a few cliche characters,
fill the running time with random set pieces providing action with
predictable outcomes, prepare the 3rd act confrontation by killing a few
characters, design one last fight scene for the protagonist to
supposedly find redemption (a.k.a. 'change') and wrap the whole thing
with some kind of explosion physical or metaphorical. It's a wrap.
Never mind cliches, plot-holes, and lack of any point or theme or
relevance. Who cares?

stories that have no other point than try to make money out of an
Why millions are spent on horrendous writing that a 12 years old could spot?
If you are tired of this, as I am, please make your point and let the
people in charge hear you: we are sick and tired of lazy storytelling!
Get the slacker hacks out and spend time and care where it counts: the
End of rant.
