marcicat: (freakout squirrel)

Just read the wikipedia summary for Fast & Furious 8. (Or whichever of the various titles it’s going by now.) Nope.

You know what I like in a movie? When NO ONE DIES. Is that so hard? Medical advances happen every day! Sometimes you even *think* someone is dead, but it turns out they had amnesia, and then it turns out they were actually *faking* the amnesia and you were secretly married to them the whole time and your True Love brings you back to life after a parking garage collapses on you!

(Not even kidding, that was a real plot line in Fast & Furious 4 through 7!)

I’m so tired of movies killing people women for The Dramatic Emphasis.

(To be fair to F&F8, it’s not like killing a character for Dramatic Emphasis is unique to that chapter of the franchise. They did it in 1, 3, 4 (sort of?), 5, 6, and 7 (a repeat of 3, but more sad?). Did they really not kill any of the good team in 2?

(Also to be fair, it wasn’t always a woman. There’s just so few women to begin with! Percentage-wise, it’s not even close!)
