What are those three things? Here we go...
1. Female characters constantly asking for direction
Sometimes writers forget that women are humans who come with functioning brains. So the only lines that lead female characters are given are questions like, "What do we do now Jack?" or "What do you mean by that Fred?" and of course, the tearfully screamed line, "Steve, why can't someone other than you save the world?! Why can't you just spend more time with me?!"
A movie begins to suck when over 75% of it's female leads lines are questions directed to the male lead.
2. Movies that are homages to Spielberg
Spielberg movies are my favorite things EVER (other than my friend Bonnie's gluten free brownies). He creates unforgettable visuals that go straight to the heart and linger there for years. So it's understandable that so many film makers are inspired by his work. BUT to try and copy his work by filling one's movie with visuals that are identical to famous moments from his movies is just a really bad choice.
Dear film makers, Spielberg is Spielberg and you are you- be you!
3. Choppy and/or Bad Editing
When a movie is edited poorly it's like an unfinished puzzle and this is sucky.
If in one scene a chick is falling from the sky and the flying superhero rushes towards her to save her life and then all of a sudden that scene is cut and the two of them are standing in the middle of a field kissing, I'm sitting in the audience with a confused look on my face, muttering, "Wait a second, a minute ago they were falling from the sky and he was saving her life...so how are they now standing in the middle of a field?"
Yeah, I'm not a fan of paying $18 to watch an unfinished puzzle.
