Yeah, I might have watched a movie and gotten kind of mad.
This is seriously a trope I’d love to never see again though.
Oh look, it’s the Matrix. And the Lego movie. And Edge of Tomorrow. And so many others.
Here’s the thing….
I love The Matrix. I love The Lego Movie. I really liked Edge of Tomorrow.
But yes….this comic brought up a FANTASTIC point.
It may not seem like a cliche at first, but line up these movies in a row, you start seeing the problem.
I’m not sharing this post to say it’s wrong to like those movies.
I’m sharing this post for us to start creating new angles and to use women in better stories instead of relying on the same formula.
So yes, now that the formula was discovered, let’s break it and start creating something new.
P.S. The Wanted movie/comic also use this formula and I’m not a fan of either. Just pointing that out.
