Scriptwriters play an important role in a movie. The writers decide the context of the film: where it is, who is in the story, what happens at the start, and what happens at the end. Sometimes, if a script is terrible, the director will work with the writer plenty of times to ensure that the film runs on the right path. But it doesn’t always work out. The troubles coming from both director and scriptwriter may cause misleading experiences to the viewers. It was terrible and confusing.
The 2002 thriller-horror film Sign is an example. The aliens don’t like water but they decided to invade a planet that was 75% water. Spider-Man 3 is also worth mentioning. Peter kissed Gwen Stacy even though he knew Mary Jane to whom Peter proposes, was there watching. What an awkward plot! Although we try to ignore them, they always disturb us when we’re watching.
