Movies

I love movies, but now I know that cliches can make someone sad.

Movies tend to kill characters off with cancer. Is cancer the number reason to die? Is that why it’s used so much? I felt so offended that what I have is something that movies use to write off characters or to create empathy from the audience.

It might be fictional, but it’s not in real life. So writers who only use cancer as a stereotypical way should think twice before upsetting actual cancer patients.
