8 Mile (2002)

A perfect, innocent rap angel is oppressed and beset all sides by the evil devil people who surround him and live only to ruin and destroy him. An unbiased depiction of Eminem's early life.



Captain Fantastic (2016)

I don't expect movies to be realistic, but this was just too implausible. Surviving off hunting and gathering is highly-skilled, full-time work. Giving a group of kids a world-class education is highly-skilled, full-time work. I'm supposed to get angry at the characters who don't support him, but if an athletic handsome genius white male polymath with well-sculpted muscles, an encyclopedic knowledge survival skills, and an encyclopedic knowledge of the liberal arts came up with an impeccable, perfect pedagogical method in real life, I doubt it would be such an uphill battle for him.



Master Of None - Season 1

At first I thought, "This is funny, but the main character is a bit of a Mary Sue." Then I got to the Nashville episode. The entire episode involves Aziz's character taking a girl out on a perfect date. The plot doesn't start till about minute 21 (75% of the way through the episode), when he makes a mistake but then makes up for it in a charming way.

Can you imagine being so self-absorbed that you would write an entire script about how attractive and wonderful and funny and kind you are, and then assemble a film crew halfway across the country so that you could have it broadcast to the world? I don't think I've ever been so embarrassed for someone I've never met.



Maron - Season 1

"Mary Sue" doesn't even begin to describe this. More than half the episodes are him complaining that too many beautiful women want to have sex with him.
