5 Things I am tired of seeing in the movies and on the t.v.:
1. Super Heroes (specifically Spider man)
I mean seriously....how many times are they going to try to re-create that same story only to realize that they either cast the wrong director or the wrong actors? Don't get me wrong. I really enjoyed a few of the comic book/super hero movies. (The Dark Knight and Iron Man) but I've seen a few pretty terrible ones lately (Thor)...
Really? So, apparently we need to see the exact same film again in 3D?? I don't! I know what happens at the end. SPOILER ALERT: The Titanic sinks and Rose couldn't move over a few inches to share part of her life raft/wooden plank to save the life of her one, true love, Jack.
3. Cop, Doctor, Lawyer shows
Aside from The Good Wife (which I love), will someone please come up with a television show that doesn't have to do with these professions. 90% of the population works in a different field. I wonder how long it will take television networks to realize that their ideas are repetitive and American audiences are tired of the same old stuff regurgitated over and over again. Here are a few shows that don't have anything to do with cops, courtrooms, or hospitals: Lost (who else misses that show?), Glee, The Office, Once Upon a Time, Mad Men, The Walking Dead, True Blood, House of Lies, The Borgias, Happy Endings.
4. Mysteries or Thrillers where they have to explain everything at the end.
I know, I know, Hollywood writers/directors think American audiences are dumb. I get that. I've definitely been sitting in a movie theater where a confused patron says out loud "I don't get it" or "What happened?" so I get that sometimes a lose plot line or unclear ending can be confusing. However, I completely despise how at the end of the show/movie when the conflict is resolved, the film flashes back to literally step-by-step explanation of how the clever protagonist resolved the mystery. (eh hem, The Mentalist, Leverage)
5. Happy Endings
