Episode 255 - 14 Movies That Are Weirdly Casual About Character Deaths

Recommended Posts

Movies have a weird double standard when it comes to character deaths.

Strangely, this is even true in movies specifically about the sanctity of life, like <i>The Shape of Water</i>. Why is this? And is it getting worse?
