Scott Hardie: I hear you about Hollywood's compulsion to cram love stories into movies that don't need them. It's predictable, and it's also reductive, as women wind up relegated to playing only the superfluous love interests and not the important characters. I suspect that there's market research that indicates how much better ticket sales will be when there's a love story, so studios force them in. It takes a director with a lot of clout to keep that out of his or her project. (Or a respect for the material. Captain America: The Winter Soldier spent a lot of time with Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson alone together on adventures, and the actors are attractive and share good chemistry, and any other movie would have had them fall in love in a movie like that, but Marvel has bigger plans for them both.) − November 9, 2014 • more by Scott
