My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.
And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.
Gamora doesn’t end up as Quill’s girlfriend, she almost guts him for trying to put moves on her. The end of the movie is basically the power of friendship winning the day, not any one person being a “chosen one”.
They stood in a circle and everything.

I spent a really long time working on CSS for this and I’m not really sure why. Figured I could do a visual version of my excel checklist, but I don’t know.
Some screen caps comparison between the original episodes and the polished up animation in the upcoming Blu Ray relases.
