Movies are popular all over the world. Explain why movies are so popular. Use specific reasons and example to support your answer.
One of the most popular pastimes today is movie-going. With what started as moving-picture shows has dramatically developed into an industry that spends millions upon millions of dollars while still turning a gigantic profit.
Movies are so popular because they are the most fascinating and easiest escape means from increasing pressure, which comes from family, school, work, society, and so many other directions. Combined with acoustic and visual effect, movies are definitely more appealing for audiences who have exhausted themselves in the real world than are those printed novels. It must have been much easier to see a movie than to read a novel, since all the audience should do is simple to sit there in a soft chair in the dark about 150 minutes. Captured, involved, the audience in a movie theater will forget everything but the story in action on the screen.
Movies have magic power to let people immerse themselves in fiction. The point is that almost everyone long for the power of snapping his fingers and seeing his wishes and dreams instantly granted. Everyone long for eternity of love, many idealize about it but now in the theater it’s time to ‘feel’ it. Every move the character makes, every breath the character takes, all seem to happen around, and clearly sensible. On the screen, no entire life needed, movies illustrate all aspects of love we can imagine: all aspects of love, from the mushy warm and fuzzy feelings we feel with our children and companion animals, to platonic love we have with friends and acquaintances, to the romantic soul-mate kind of love, to the agape kind of unconditional love, it’s the full gamut. Dramas are created in order for us to play out different sides of ourselves.
In short, movies are so popular because many can escape into the world of fantasy and live vicariously through the characters and in doing so, work out different feelings and emotions that they may not have the opportunity to do in their ‘normal’ lives.[335 Words]
