There are a lot of cinematic conventions that I despise, but, nowadays, if I had to name one that's really worn out its welcome, it'd have to be the wielding of two weapons. Whether it's swords and guns, I don't care; I'm tired of the image and wish it would just go away. I know that's not likely to happen anytime soon, as it's too strongly entrenched in popular culture to fade, but I hate it nonetheless. Aside from being terribly impractical in most instances, it's just so trite. Can't we come up with a different absurd combat convention and overuse it for a while?
