Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: The Castle
Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: At one point in the film, Daryl muses aloud that he now understands why Australian natives have fought so hard for their land since colonisation - presumably just in case anyone watching hadn't figured out the subtext yet.
Strawman Has a Point: Regardless of the conclusion of the film and Darryls beliefs, the developers are correct and would win in any real life court case (the criminal intimidation and threats are never brought up in court;) the principle in question is one of the fundamentals of English common law shared by Australia, America, and many other nations, and expansion of transit access like an airport terminal is a noncontroversial application. Without it, essential projects like transit, utilities, and disaster prevention and mitigation would be extremely hampered. Similarly, sentiment as an inherently subjective value is useless in law, or anyone could claim to love their house dearly, and only 10 million in cash could mitigate its loss.
