Re: Rooting for Antiheroes

I think 95% of the audience is cheering for Snake -- you say he has no redeeming qualities -- but being the star of the movie and played by a huge star is sometimes all you need... I don't know how...

Re: Rooting for Antiheroes

This sounds like homework -- maybe you should answer first to help move us along... Ha.

My quick take is that we identify with the main character and their POV -- it's their story. So if Star Wars...

Re: Not Writing the Types of Movies You Love

I was thinking maybe Happy Death Day -- I obviously did not do research -- I wouldn't have guessed most of those were PG-13. I honestly thought PG-13 died in the 90s. I feel like every movie is G PG...
