So, shaky cam. What a bunch of garbage. Even when it happens in movies I love.
Why is it so prevalent, though? Well, according to YouTuber AllOuttabubbleGum, it’s because the MPAA has gone all censorious over common, everyday, NECESSARY fight choreography.
I’ll let his video speak for itself.
I’ve complained about this before, most specifically on Geek Gab, where stupid MPAA rules mean that intense, visceral fight scenes are limited to R-Rated movies, while PG-13 movies (which can’t show impacts) are limited to floaty, fake, uninteresting fights. I’d never considered that shaky-cam was a result of that same censorious impulse, however.
Good to see some confirmation of the problem.
