Wit Without Wisdom, Ep. 05
Obviously when you sit down to a movie or television show you expect a bit of fantasy. You’re willing to suspend your disbelief and allow the filmmakers a bit of creative license. That is, after all, part of the fun.
But there are often things in movies—and usually the smallest of things—that are so contrary to the human experience and the laws of physics, or so obvious in their attempt to sell a message that they jar you from the fantasy.
It’s downright annoying.
It makes you wonder if filmmakers live in some bizarre universe, if it’s just lazy filmmaking, or if they really believe this is how the world operates.
So in this episode, Austin The Millennial joins us as we roll tape on our list of the most annoying stuff they just get wrong in movies.
Plus, we reveal:
* How Netflix almost ruined Raymond’s Social Media feed.
* The type of movie kissing that disgusts SK!
* Why none of us would have sex during the zombie apocalypse.
* Why movies makers seem to have a bizarre concept of time.
And, of course, much, much more!

We’re S.K. Anthony and Raymond Esposito, your hosts at Writers After Dark. She writes those urban-fantasy–superhero-badass-chicks-with-a-touch-of-romance stories and he writes those dark fiction-things-that-go-bump-in-the night tales.
When it comes to writing, we don’t agree on genre, but we do agree that . . . we love stories . . . and one of the things we love most: hanging out in our mostly-sober, Writers After Dark studio and debating the merits of just about anything related to the story of life.
