Media pet peeve:
Evil army invades well-populated city. city full of thousands. City with police officers, people with small children, people who may own weapons, people who have something to defend, etc.
Only ever shows main character(s) fighting the enemy. all those other people are only shown being captured / killed if anything.
FFS SHOW US SOME PEOPLE FIGHTING BACK IN THE BACKGROUND! SHOW ME JOE SHMOE BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF ONE OF THE INVADERS WITH A CROWBAR! SHOW ME A MOTHER CARRYING HER BABY AND PARKOUR-ING HER WAY THROUGH TOWN TO ESCAPE!
SHOW ME THE FREAKING POLICE OR SOMETHING SHOOTING (AND KILLING / TAKING OUT) THE BADDIES LIKE IT’S THEIR FUCKING JOB OR SOMETHING BECAUSE IT KINDA IS!?
FREAKING SHOW ME THAT IT’S NOT JUST THE MAIN CHARACTERS DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
