Page Action: Hollywood Style

What would be the best way to fix the page?

At issue:

Several pages in this index are equivalent to Artistic License pages (or nearly so), but use an ambiguous, myopic prefix as a snowclone, a prefix that means different things entirely in other tropes.

Showing 12 of 12. Hide items with lower scores.

Start separate threads for any Holloywood X trope on TRS. Each trope will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. Also covers any other problems they have.

Rename Hollywood Sex to Idealized Sex

We already have a supertrope for impossible sex: Anatomically Impossible Sex. Our other sex page is for idealized sex. (The current name does not clearly distinguish the two.)

Rename Hollywood Costuming to Artistic License Costuming

(This helps distinguish it from Hollywood Dress Code)

Rename Hollywood Economics to Artistic License Economics

(This helps distinguish it from Hollywood Accounting)

Merge Hollywood Law with Artistic License Law

Hollywood Law defines itself as a legal situation that does not resemble reality but departs from it for dramatic purposes. It directs readers to Artisitic License Law for a list of tropes.

Switch Hollywood Sex with its redirect, Artistic License Sex

(Helps distinguish it from Sex In Movies, which we don't cover in a page. However, many people are probably searching for that sort of thing.)

Rename Hollywood Science to Artistic License Science

Currently functions as an Artistic License page, several of its subtropes currently use the Artistic License format.

Con: Preexisting term

Change Hollywood to an alternative name for all Hollywood X tropes; name TBD
