That’s So Unrealistic

There are plenty of annoying things you can do while watching a movie. Talk through it, ask constant questions about the plot, eat loudly, etc. But to me, there is nothing worse than whining and complaining about how unrealistic the movie is.

Now, if the movie’s entire plot revolves around realism, you have every right to complain about the factual inaccuracies or blunders. There are plenty of movies that are downright stupid and deserve to be criticized. But, if the movie is about dragons, or a kid’s toy possessed by an evil serial killer, (shout out to Child’s Play) why in the hell are you complaining that the main character shouldn’t have been able to jump that far, or that the cop should’ve ran out of ammo? Last time I checked, dragons don’t exist, and neither do evil possessed kid’s toys. You’re willing to go along with people living in a magical land of dwarves and elves, but you can’t tolerate the characters going long amounts of time without eating?

“They wouldn’t be able to break that lock, that would never happen.”

Oh yeah? The breaking of the lock is fake, but the huge bloodsucking vampire chasing them isn’t? The lock breaking couldn’t happen, but a man turning into a pale, immortal creature of the night could?

People actually find it logical to pop in a movie about talking animals, and then complain about aspects of the plot being fake. Hey there, do you not realize the entire premise of this movie is based on something that is impossible? And you’re complaining about someone holding their breath for too long?

“There’s no way that car would explode like that.”

Hey bud, it’s a movie about talking gorillas. Let’s put things in perspective here.

Anyways, that’s probably enough ranting for today. If you’re one of these people I’m talking about, I guess my parting message to you would be: Give documentaries a try. Or dog crap. It’s really up to you.
