Does anyone else hate it in movies and tv shows when an actor takes a bite of food and they chew it for the remainder of the scene, and it’s usually not even that big of a bite!
I find it hilarious when people criticize the film Juno because “no teenager talks the way Juno does, only adults can talk like that”. Umm NOBODY talks like that. It’s called film. In film it’s okay for people to talk in more interesting ways than we do in real life, because otherwise movies would be fucking boring.
Some movies are more exaggerated or stylized than others when it comes to dialog, and how the characters act, but it can be okay either way as long as the way they talk and act is consistent with the tone.
I understand comparing movies to real life because when movies are set in the real world we expect “plausibility”, but sometimes you just have to turn off your brain and get lost in the material. We shouldn’t think in such a restricted way when we watch movies, because it makes irrelevant the reason we watch them in the first place.
Something I’ve realized is that on the rare occurrence that I do read a book it’s because it’s the basis for a movie or a tv show. Which bothers me because the magic of a book is that the world is created in your head for your imagination, and obviously when you see a movie you (or at least I) tend to project that onto whats described in the book.
