Disgusting. This popular bias that death is the worst punishment for the one who is killed is so apparent in the movies.
This 'John Wick' movie I'm watching. Spoiler alert btw, although the movie sucks imo, there's not much to spoil.
So in this movie a scumbag kills John's beloved dog in front of him and as a revenge he hunts him down and... kills him in 2 shots, in 10 seconds. Yeah, that really showed him, right? He had the whole few seconds of being scared, a few seconds of a gunshot wound pain and then - boom - his consciousness was out. Dead can't really suffer as far as we know, it's the living who can, so why would one who wants revenge arrange a quick and relatively painless departure for his foe? He'd have suffered more from some kind of cancer had he been left alive. The supposed rationale is that the bastard was deprived of all the pleasures he could have had had he stayed alive. Ok then, but where is he to lament that fact? He;s dead, he can't know anything, including that he missed out on any pleasures. Quick death is what lots of people on this planet end up wishing for in their old age, because it's usually more torturous. To simple, 'innocent' people. So could you maybe, possibly fathom something more scary and ruthless for a scumbag in a movie than that?
You dumb, boring, disappointing people, you can't even get the primitive act of revenge right!
The movie itself was .. watchable. But nothing special, really, actors' play wasn't to die for, scenes were often overdramatized and theatrical. Some of which is good in any movie, of course, but it can be done in a more subtle way and ... in this way. Oh and next time you people try to portray Russians in a movie, hire an actual translator, because 'Baba Yaga' - is not a 'Boogeyman' in Russian. 'Babay' would be something of a boogeyman, while Baba Yaga is an old, arthritis ridden ugly lady who likes to eat children. Such a nickname doesn't really suit Keanu Reeves.
Another idiocy is that Russians in this movie aparently love singing childrens' lulluby. Not to the kids, just for themselves. That just never happens. I don't imagine any people gathering for a drunk party with hookers in a swimmong pool and singing a lulluby. Well, as abnormal as Russians may be, they don't either.
That's it, I'm done bashing other people's creative work for today, thank you for reading :D
My favorite movie list is available btw, right here.
