All right, well hello there.
Well today I wanted to talk about movies
And not like, Oh this was a great movie, or don't see that, but I wanted to talk about the perpose of movies in general.
You see, I started think about this after my mom made me watch the movie with her.
Let me first explain what it was about:
It started out pretty good, it was about a girl who was very plain, ans akward and no one really liked her. And her dad resented her because her mother died giving birth to her. (this ia a period piece btw) and then she falls in love with this really nice guy who is kinda poor. And there is all these conflicts with money, and her dad and then her rubbish aunt.
But then in the end it is all for nothing. Becuase the couple have a big argument where he is in the wrong, and he leaves for EIGHT years. And then comes BACK after the father dies, and she won't forgive him, and they never see each other again.
and I just sat there during the credits, WAITING for more. Caues it can't just end like that! I mean who does that!! What a terrible ending! That should be a crime!
So I got to thinking about why we watch these movies. Why are they so prelavant in the 21 century?
I think most people, including myself, watch movies for the escape of it. When we watch movies we slowly slip out of our reality, into the fantastic world of the imagination, where anything is possible. We want to loose ourselves in the excitement of it all, if it be animation, romance, or some kind of adventure.
And so I bring myself back to the distressing movie that I watched, and asked how do people enjoy these things? Why does my mom like them so much? "It shows the reality of things", my mom says, "that he actions had concequnces."
If I wanted to see the reality of things, I would watch the news channel. If I want reality, then I would be observing the life around me.
It's like going to a movie so that you can watch someone go to the grocery store and you say, "Now that's some good reality right there."
I just does not compute, why anyone would want to see that! I have enough of reality, thank you very much. Now give me a good romance story with a little comedy, or a hero's awe inspiring tale.
Thats my kind of movie
p.s. I went to the eye doctors today and guess what?! I'm getting glasses --O-O--
