Rom wrote:Ok I have a theory, it is about movies. Since it is movie related forum it would be interesting to hear your opinions. I was totally loving movies for a long time, I have seen a lot of them, I always loved to recommend my favorite ones to my friends to listen to their impressions. And I was always in constant search for new movies that I may like. Ok I should stick closer to my theory. The fact is that at the moment I feel like I hate movies, I'm ending up disliking every movie I've ever seen including Nolan, if someone asks me for a movie recommendation I would be confused because I feel like there is no good movie in existence. I used to like them but eventually I feel like I do not anymore. Now the theory. The idea I realized for myself is that there are two reasons why movies, all of them, suck. First, now it's hard to explain for me being not english speaker... Let me use an example, imagine you walk outside and you see beautiful sky and rain and you're enjoying it. Now imagine you just watched Avatar and you're walking outside, you're probably won't impressed by the sky and rain. So the idea is that you're feeding your brain with extreme images, effects, explosions, insane stories, and your brain releases a lot of hormones during that process (neurochemistry is my interest). And after watching movies your brain is kind of exhausted and you enjoy real life things less. Now it's up to everyone to decide if you have something worthy to enjoy in your life to drop movies, but I feel like choosing to drop movies. At some point I watched them a lot and I felt really exhausted. Also it may probably work only for those who are not addicted to more serious stuff like cigarettes, alcohol, junk food etc. Now second reason why movies supposedly suck. Think about it, is there a reason for someone to shoot a movie about ordinary stuff that happens in life of any average human? Most likely no. Plots in movies always show something very unusual, especially I want to focus on people's decisions in movies. The idea is that people act irrational in movies, for instance extreme altruism like in superhero movies, and this stuff subconsciously teaches us to expect same kind of decisions from people in real life, but it does not happen or does not work, so basically all movies are dreamlands with crazy stuff and it confuses our brains a lot, which again hurts real life if it matters for you. I will watch Interstellar because Nolan is my favorite director or at least he used to be, and I love space since childhood, but it is probably the last movie I'm gonna see. What do you guys think?
We talk about it a lot but this guy literally overdosed on superhero movies.

How many more must fall victim to this disease before we make a change?

Sometimes I use "Max" from Netflix and I reject all of his suggestions because it makes me feel like I actually have a modicum of control over my life.
