people like Drake, Frost and Apone were dead very early on, despite being interesting and likeable characters too
They weren't interesting- we know next to nothing about them - just likeable. And that's all you need.
Making likeable characters out of high penalty prison would be very cheesy and movie cliche. Those people are garbage who raped or killed. Making one of them as the only one who truly changed is more natural. Plus we also like Clemens and 85 (whi plays the role of Lambert & Hudson), and Morse is funny
Thus illustrating the point that no one's going to give a shit when they die.
Right, but theres plenty of characters in most horrors and movies that we dont know and are just meatbags
Aaron only becomes likeable because of his death. Prior to that he's a fairly pathetic idiot.
he came off as that, but he wasnt a bad guy. And again, he played the same role as Lambert and Hudson - being the voice of the audience, the scared, panicking side
There's no black and white on contrivances. Some are easy to accept (Aliens) and others aren't (Alien3). They should be applauded for taking the road less travelled
The script was written on the spot, there was no time for intricate explanations. The egg was there, audience assumes the Queen left it, thats it. The problems in details only
