What do you get out of a movie? What sorts of movies do you like? Why do you like them?
I ask this because it seems like F types and T types would have some very different answers to those questions. I usually see movies with my INTP friend, and it's a pretty big difference on tastes. We can always agree on some movies, but I really dislike slasher/gore/terrifying movies and he prefers to not see the kiddy animated ones I like. We usually find common ground on adventure and action, along with some random ones with a very good story.
I remember he took me to go see SAW 3 to "just try it please!!" He pretty much begged me, since I normally don't watch those. So I reluctantly agreed to see it. Well, I withstood 20 minutes of that movie. I walked out when it got to a scene where a girl had to get a key out of some acid to unlock the machine that would rip her ribs open... Wow. I must say the things I saw in that movie pretty much scarred me, I had nightmares for about two weeks. Especially the emotions I got out of it, I know it's fake but it's just too brutal for me. When I heard the sizzling of the acid I was like NOOOOO and I left.
To answer my own question I really enjoy dark themed movies, adventure/fantasy movies, animated movies suited for kids (I really liked Bolt, I saw it in 3D it was awesome), and movies that have a good plot and story, regardless of genre. I usually go to a movie to escape life temporarily, to live in a fantasy world for 1.5-3 hours. These kinds of movies have always appealed to me, I've always in general liked dark themed things, adventure/fantasy movies always zone me out of this real world, and the animated movies I just really enjoy. I know what to expect out of one, always a good ending, always great animations, always some distinct characters.
What do you guys think? What experience do you get out of movies? Just speak your mind, I'm curious.
