    I makes you live the movie. You're drawn in and participate. It involves your imagination and doesn't insult your intelligence.

      In the TV vs Movies argument, I think they each have their strength and weaknesses. While movies may not have the room to tell the same kinds of stories TV does, they usually don't suffer from being bloated the way TV often does. Movies also tend to have budget and star power. It's also kinda what you want out the medium. TV will never do the concept of the "blockbuster" as well as movies.

        I don't know Dan, are you using the term Blockbuster as a synonym for Epic?? Certainly as media spectacle, the Movies do have an edge.

            Just the type of Movie. You're never gonna get something like "Mission Impossible: Fallout" on TV for example. It's a big bombastic spectacle. Same thing with the super hero movies, and Star Wars. Sure you may get stuff related to that, but it'll generally be a much smaller scope. It's really just about what you're after. My big problem with a lot of TV these days though is that while there are interesting stories being told there, the shows themselves tend to be bloated (looking at you Game of Thrones). Then on top of that, if they're successful they tend to run on for so long that when they do finally end, it's almost never a satisfying or good ending, or there's no real ending and the show gets canceled. Obviously there's some notable exceptions to this.

              I agree and disagree LOL!! Good term "Bombastic Spectacle". I think Game of Thrones was fantastic minus chunks of the last season. I think TV's strength is that it can tell in depth stories. I'm interested in seeing what gets done with The Name of the Wind.

                Maybe it's the way I watched Game of Thrones, but the first 5 seasons were good. They told a good story, and were paced correctly. I binged the first 4 just before 5 came out and then watched 5 week to week. Then with the wait between 5 and 6 I lost interest and didn't even watch season 6. I watched season 7 and felt like I missed nothing from season 6 (not a good sign). Season 7 was so bad (in my opinion) that I didn't even bother watching the last season, and with the way everyone complained I'd have hated it for sure.

                While I think TV can tell in depth stories. Largely I think it really doesn't usually succeed at it. Especially since most of the time they aren't adapting something and just don't have any idea where they're going with the story when they start the show. Movies at least generally know the story they're trying to tell and they know the amount of time they have to tell it in. Don't get me wrong, I like both mediums, but generally speaking I find the movie experience to be a much more complete (or well thought out) story than the TV experience.

                    I think we agree on this. I think range can be great, but let's look at William Shatner: he didn't have it, but he will always be remembered because he brought an iconic character to life.

                    ...but then, I really appreciate people like Meryl Streep (who can play basically anything).

                      I don't think that's a controversial opinion. All I read was hate for that movie. I loved it, but I want to watch it again to see if I really loved it. Really really loved it.

                      I loved the first 90% of Hereditary but hated the way it ended.

                      i loved The Babadook but it gave me a huge case of the depressions. I will probably never watch it again. Or I might.

                      Didn't see It Follows or Saint Maude or Midsomar or The Lighthouse but want to. I really want to. Also I really really want to.

                      I think that covers the emergence of art-house horror movies. Which I like but not blindly. Not because the critics claim I should.

                        I watched it and found it repetitive, slightly long, and with no clear conclusion. When it was all said and done I liked the thought but not the script.

                          I think this may be a complaint and not controversial.

                          Overrated Actors:
                          • Will Smith
                          • Tom Cruise

                            Both of those actors are very good at playing themselves. Where Tom Cruise shines is really the stunts more than the acting itself. The man does all of his stunts himself, and it's honestly impressive.
