Handling Death

Skimmed through Transformers: Age of Extinction; one of the minor characters is killed by a transformer weapon which turns inorganic and organic matter into metal. His death reminded me of the death of a minor character in Jurassic World; in both instances the major characters know what has happened, but there is no praying, no mourning. Even though one could say that the relationship with the major character(s) is more of a business relationship rather than a real friendship, still it's a rather sad depiction of how people deal with death. (I imagine this problem of Hollywood is magnified in disaster movies like San Andreas or 2012.) At least the pagans mourned and prayed.
