Agreed, and I've been told that I take movies too seriously because of this.
I don't want just to watch.
I want to be challenged. I want to see intense character struggle. No, not some 'The Sandlot' struggle, new kid not fitting in, or trying to get a baseball from the other side of the fence.
Yeah, to illustrate the subjectivity of it all, I'm like the opposite when it comes to watching movies. I want escapism. I want stuff that is going to make me feel good or excited. Not to say I want everything to be mindless. Challenging is fine, but I don't want to feel emotionally drained or depressed because of a movie - if that makes any sense. So, I tend to stay away from stuff that is really bleak and serious.
