I hate watching films with sad endings. Why make films depressing too? Isn’t the drama in real life enough? Not fair.
In my opinion, films should be that magical place where everyone is happy and get what they wish for. Films should provide us a break from our problematic real lives. There are news papers and news stations to cover the dark side of our reality. There is no need for another medium, i.e. movies, to do the same as well. Unnecessary.
Maybe I should start reading the plot before I proceed to watch a movie. However, this defeats the purpose of watching movies but I do not really care. As Rhett Butler says to Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the wind, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” And I really don’t. I would rather read (shouldn’t take more than a minute or two) about the movie than sit through the entire movie and forming emotional connections with the characters to only only find out that it does not end well. Who would want to be reminded of our dark and eerie pasts, which we are trying to forget, of our lives by watching films with depressive endings? No, thank you.
I guess (oh I know) this is my official goodbye to movies with depressive endings and stories.
