Do we demand too much?

Last week I wrote a review about a movie that I had seen called “Inside Out” I had had plans to see it while it was in the cinemas, but it just never happened. So on Netflix we saw it was on there and so we decided to watch and I had ended up being very disappointed to not really enjoy it, as I just expected to as everyone else had told me I would. Which had made me start to question about getting caught up in the bandwagon of these “must see” movies.

I believe this is because we are given SO much detail about the movie before it even comes out, that we have these expectations of what the movies will be in it’s entirety, before we’ve even seen it.

Take the live action film Beauty and the Beast for example. People were making HUGE judgements just based on the whole Emma Watson not wearing a corset thing. I have literally seen people make comments about how they are not going to see the film, because she’s not wearing the “true” outfit. Which is kind of ironic to me, since the whole movie is about not judging based on appearances. Then I thought to myself, would it have been better to notice it once the film has come out and not before? I honestly didn’t notice that she wasn’t even wearing a corset until people pointed it out. So people could make better judgements, whether it really makes that much of a difference to the film. Which, while I get the sentiment, I just don’t think it should be the focus of the film.

Sometimes to me it feels like there has to be a social or political point to make for people to go see a film, rather than just go see a film, to enjoy it. Sometimes I honestly feel the fun has been taken out of just seeing a film for the sake of seeing a film that you just want too. Sometimes it feels like there is just so much information out there and of course someone is going to be offended by something, and it’s hard to see a film without those people giving you a hard time about what they feel all offended by and I just want to see the film.

There have been many times when I have to go to see a movie a few weeks after it’s come out and I’ve been expecting to really enjoy it and I didn’t. Or films that I’ve seen when everyone else did, enjoyed it, watched it later and just did not enjoy it.

Has this ever happened to you readers? Do you feel like we are getting to much information before a film is even out? Have you ever decided not see a film or to see one because of all the “information” before a film comes out, or does it not affect you?

I am choosing to enjoy this Beauty and the Beast film.

Inside Out

I finally got to watch the popular children’s film “Inside Out” (2015)…I know, I know…I had planned to see it when it came out, but I just never got around to it. I am not lying when I say that EVERYONE told me that I had to see it, I would completely relate to it…

They lied…

I found it really boring. I had go in expecting to be completely thrilled and taken on this amazing ride. Now to be honest, maybe it transfers differently from a cinema screen to a television screen, but I just could not get into it. I found it really boring and really sad, it had been the complete opposite of what I had been expecting. I also really didn’t like “Joy”. I found her far to controlling and thinking she is far better than the other emotions. Maybe I was thinking to literally, but there just seems to be something wrong with trying to be joyful all the time. I felt she was more “arrogance” than joy. It just didn’t sit well with me. Which is weird because most people would say that I’m a happy person. I am, I just know it’s not possible to be joyful ALL the time. Which I also realised was one of the lessons to be learned, but it just didn’t sit well with me and I wanted to tell her to leave Sadness alone,lol

It also make me think though about seeing movies as soon as they come out and getting all caught up in the wild storm of a new film coming out. Instead of people waiting to see, giving it some time, everyone has to go and see it as soon as it comes out. I wonder if that makes people jump on a band wagon, so to speak. Getting all caught up and it’s actually not that good of a movie. In a age where people don’t like to be “wrong” I think this is a real possibility. Sometimes these “must see” movies, just aren’t really that “must see”.

I remember hearing recently about how these days, not only are there problems with “spoilers”. There are also problems with people knowing about the entire film before it even comes out, the costumes, outtakes, Instagram shots etc. Whereas a few years ago, you knew about the general idea. The actors, maybe the plot, but not much else. You’d probably get one or two movie posters but that would be about it, if we were lucky. These days it almost feels like we demand to know everything about everything. However, I will be writing about that more in another Blog later.
