do you need to shut off your brain to sometimes enjoy a movie?

i know to some you could just Watch a movie, but to others they need to dumb themselves down a bit just to enjoy the movie without ranting the little details of the movie and without ruining the experiences for other people...are you those type of people who observes even the little details and who question logic of a big movie franchise?

Not really. But yeah, the inner skeptic is impossible to turn off. I don't like movies and TV, for the most part. I still have favorites (School of Rock), but I always find things that point towards societal dysfunction. Some things I can see the best of for the majority of time, but I struggle to enjoy most movies. There are exceptions, I will accentuate again that fact.

I don't like the limited manipulation of the mind (through sight, sound). Some call it art, but there is a certain severity to the manipulation that bothers me... Argh. Hard to explain. The blatant, relentless advertising is one thing that really gets me.

[@417823,lovelywarpedlemon] i have a friend who seems to point of the logical flaws of the harry potter franchise...understands the universe as illogical due to its "Magic"
[@354525,nurseVneck] I remember liking the original Harry Potter movies. :) But there is something you call that... "Being a cynical asshole." (South Park reference.)

I do, so I tend to watch more psychological ones that way I don't have to worry about it as much.

I can just appreciate that it is a movie and that there will be flaws. I don't make a habit of pointing it out and I'm happy to place myself within the movie's universe for amusement.

I like movies that stimulate my emotions. The ones that make me cry are my favorites. Some of my favorites are "Radio", "The Pursuit of Happyness", "The Gridiron Gang", "The punisher".

I am one of those people but not in sci-fi or fantasy movies. Consequently I either watch a movie in private or not at all.

I like to get into the story, the world in which it creates. Some movies though are a waste of time.
I leave or delete if they aren't good..
