Sometimes, as good as a movie is, there's something in it that just pisses us off.
This is a thread about those things.
A small request, if your moment is of the spoiler-ey nature, please, name the movie, then block out the spoiler, like so .
For me, personally, it's in Alien, when Lambert dies. From what I've heard, it IS intentionally implied that the Alien is, in fact, raping her. Not that this "bothers" me or anything, I just think it's mind-numbingly stupid. Rape is a power thing; the rapist wants to feel control over someone else. This would mean that this creature that has been alive for less than 24 hours, acts purely on animal instinct, and has encountered humans for the first time not only has a full understanding of human reproduction (ie. it knows HOW to rape someone), but it also has the mental capacity to develop the motivation to rape someone. This, for me, just kills it. The Xenomorph is a being of pure instinct; everything it does, it does to survive. The idea that this creature would stop thinking "I must survive" and start thinking "I need to rape someone to satisfy my need to feel power over someone" is just incredibly... stupid...
Now, if by "the Alien raped Lambert", they mean "the Alien, in the process of killing Lambert, happened to move its tail into that particular place", then that's fine, but the idea of it INTENTIONALLY raping someone, fully aware of what it was doing...
I dunno, it's just something that's always ticked me off... It just felt like an attempt to make Alien "dark" and "disturbing", despite that it already IS incredibly dark and disturbing. Like they tried SO HARD, they accidentally went overboard and made it look stupid.
Luckily, it's one of those "leave it to the imagination" scenes, so I can easily assume what I want and enjoy the rest of the spectacular tension and atmosphere VV
