I hope everyone is having a good week. Eid Mubarak to everyone who celebrates it.
I feel like all you guys see from Farah and I are book-related stuff, which IS the point of this blog, but still, I feel like we all connect somehow, so I’d like to maybe talk about other things. This post will be the first of many if you guys like the idea.
Today’s discussion is a debate I’ve had before with MANY of my friends because I’m not a movie person… AT ALL. My opinions will be a bit biased because I generally dislike watching movies.
TV series get in-depth when it comes to character development, on-going action and everything that takes place in between. They also are constantly updated and the anticipation of a new episode for us to watch on the weekends after a long week of school/work keeps me going, tbh.
Popular TV series have AMAZING fan pages all over Tumblr and Instagram, so my feed is always crammed up with rumors, gossip, and theories of what’s going to happen in upcoming seasons.
When a TV series ends after a really long time *cough* The Vampire Diaries *cough*, and you get to feel that hole in your heart where your favorite characters were and the crushing feeling of knowing you can no longer see what they’re up to, you actually find a lot of other people out there who feel the same way and never really get to move on.
The advantage here is you get to “not move on” with other people, and that unites people in some sort of bond and you belong in a fandom that understands your emotional breakdowns. (Weird way of putting it but it’s true)
The reason I don’t like movies is we move on SO fast from them. You get 90 minutes of a set of characters and one or two plot twists, and that’s IT.
How am I expected to personally relate to a character in 90 minutes? I mean, sure, it happens and I don’t mean I never watch movies because I do, but I’d never love a certain set of characters in a movie the way I’d love them if they were in a TV show.
That said, I have plenty of movies and TV shows to recommend, so maybe I can write a whole blog post recommending you some??
Tell me your thoughts and which of those you prefer in the comments! I’d love to hear your point of views!
Until my next post, stay safe
