Movies of the week
We inhale movies, exhale movies and live movies! They have extensively invaded our lives and without them, we would miss those popcorn-crunching weekends, where we find ourselves leading a royal life, throned on a spongy cushion, cross legged, detached from the reality, as fiction takes over our mind. Why do movies affect us like no other medium of amusement does?
Below are a few reasons to break the suspense:
Everything Happens So Fast: A movie is like covering the whole lifetime of a character in about ninety minutes or so. When events unfold in a jiffy, the floodgates of imaginations break open, projecting into our brains instances of mind-boggling emotions, abrupt shift of fates, light at the end of dark tunnel, the cunningness of the human mind, the glory of the same intangible mind and everything that makes the mysterious subject of life. You have all that life presents in a long, long time, packaged into one and a half hour of fiction. Not becoming addicted to such a matchless extravaganza is out of question.
On-Screen Romance Is Flawless: The real life romance seeks perfection in imperfection whereas on-screen romance seeks perfection in perfection. The eternal lovers we remember like the Romeo and Juliet, who never met, have been set as examples of eternal love. If you agree with my opinion, had Romeo and Juliet actually met, they would have also shoved away fro each other by extreme intimacy. Extreme intimacy is only a fiction-in real life extreme intimacy implies encroaching into a unique being’s personal space and inviting troubles. What stars as a beautiful romantic story ends as a lifetime of compromise. True romance is almost absent, but the silver screen fills of the gap by depicting the ‘happy ever after’ stories, and the human mind is such, what is misses in real life, it discovers in fiction. This is a major factor why romantic movies are considered evergreen movies.
Violence Becomes Digestible Entertainment: Again, when it comes to real life, we condemn violence and blood shed. A human approach to removal of the criminal mind is in forgiveness and transformation of evil into virtue rather than excruciating punishments and gun shots. So, what we avoid in real, we show to the extremes in the fictional world. The violence in the fictional silver screen world takes another level, it blows up the entire cities, and puts the green under threat, and who are the saviors, just a bunch of strong-willed humans. We explore our Herculean potential in the action heroes and just love the mammoth impact of the special effects.
