We Love Films
Why do we love movies?
Have you ever wondered why we watch movies? It must be so strange from the outside to see people sitting in front of boxes and watching moving pictures for hours. But we're so used to the idea that we don't find it funny - we don't completely question it. So the question remains: why do we like movies? Well, there are plenty of answers.
We like stories
We are told stories from poor times, even before we understand their narrative and content. And we grow up with stories that our parents or grandparents tell after falling asleep, told by our preschooler, told through the first books we learn to read from. There is something in stories that amuse us that makes us wonder and make us beg for more. Movies and series have the same effect: they have something to tell us, and we feel obligated to sit and watch.
