paranoiaebw: V is for Vagina?

So I saw “V for Vendetta” the other day and I must say I enjoyed it. I found it’s messages mixed at times but overall it was alright. I’m a huge fan of the graphic novel and I do understand that the changes may take away from the actual movie. I guess the reason I enjoyed it though is because I thought it was going to be a big piece of shit with a ton of action scenes in it. While they did add some action I don’t think they over did it and it worked well.

The biggest problem with the movie is this:

They have a love story/tension between “V” and Evey. I do think this is stupid (as I actually agree with my friend that “V” was possibly her mother) BUT “V” is a Hollywood movie and that sort of stuff is bound to be thrown at us. One of my friends was so mad by this so another guy challenged him to name one major Hollywood movie where a romance/tension of some sort wasn’t put in with at least two characters in it.

You know the best answer he could come up with? Predator 2!

THAT’S reaching if you ask me! SO-my question is, can you think of any major Hollywood pictures where they don’t put some sort of love story in there for the audience?

molotovnitemare: you just struck a chord

i don't know why producers insist on these romantic interests when they are not only unecessary, but poorly developed as well.

insert convenient love triangle HERE for entertainment, and screw 'em if the audien want people to like one another for a REASON!

worst movie to ever do this, that i can think of... volcano (don't ask me why i was watching it). we have civil engineer meet geologist for the first time. they exchange some snide power struggle remarks. CE leaves room. geo's asst says "i think he likes you (WTF?)" geo says, he's a dick. asst: "good, you like him too." and THAT'S IT now they like each other, and they even LOVE one another (even though they barely spend any more time together throughout the movie), through the magic of suggestion.

i fucking HATE THAT!
