Movies the Right Way

A friend, actually two friends - one Saturday, one Monday - recently shared with me an idea similar to this:
If a movie does not impact you in some way or affect the way you think in some way, then you are watching it wrong.

Interesting concept. I agree.

One of my very, very (did I mention very) guilty pleasures is "The Hot Chick." This show provokes giggling fits every time - I can't help it. Better yet, if you sugar me up and catch me after midnight with this flick, you will behold quite the spectacle. Even this oddity sets my imagination on a creative spark. What would it be like to wake up as a different person? How different is my perception of myself versus what others perceive?

Perhaps I'm off-the-mark on what these young men originally intended with their theory, but the fact remains that the idea got me thinking - which means I was listening the right way:-)

Someday you will cry during a movie.

hmmm....Jules, I dunno about that...I'm on a 30-year dry spell there.

Kristen and Kristie, how did we never bond on this level before? "I don't think you get the gravity of the situation here."
"Can I see it?"
HA!!!! :-)

By the way, every time I see the title to this post, I think it says "MOVES the Right Way," and I wind up hoping it's some new post about mad dancing skills.

I second Braddy's comment. Will you please write a post about mad dancing skills?

Or it's just a badly made movie. :P But overall I agree. I go watch movies to feel something.
