Grand Theft Cinema

Don't you hate it when "heroes" in movies steal innocent civilian's cars?

Look, I don't care if you're James Bond, Jason Bourne, that guy from North by Northwest, whoever. The people whose cars you are stealing need those cars to get to work and have productive lives contributing to society in a concrete way. They make things, sell goods, fill out times sheets, and do all the things that we all depend on. So do us all a favor and don't steal their cars. Or at least make a point of showing the scene where you reimburse them for the fact that you just stole their possession. What a joke.

On a side note, if you're a bad guy, it's OK to steal someone's car. Part of the game, right? But if you want to pretend to be good at all, you can't just steal some random person's car. Unacceptable.
