    I'm fairly certain I've never watched a movie where I didn't talk to the tv screen, the worst are when I can't help but think of logic when you probably shouldn't. I like to think of Frozen, they were told to treat her normally and she could control her powers...instead they immediately lock her away and then you got a crappy children's movie that I hate more than a dental visit. Seriously, I can't turn my brain off from thinking about things I find stupid in movies and tv shows, and I suppose that means even I can't enjoy a popcorn movie.

      Sometimes the best part of a movie is the conversation I have during it. I have many fond memories of MST3king the crap out of a crappy film. It's easier to do at home, but I have also done it at the theatre on occasion. I can't always enjoy a bad movie this way as sometimes I'm too annoyed, especially if I had high hopes for a film, but I do like "so bad it's good" type films and some popcorn movies for this reason. There are different ways to enjoy a movie. There are some films and T.V. shows that I just can't stand no matter how hard I try, but then I remind myself that everything can't be for everyone, and that they're plenty of things that I do enjoy... just not Frozen. ;)

    Even movies that aren't meant to be taken seriously demand that you think about them if they're any good. Anything with style inspires thought. Take, let's say, the delightfully campy From Dusk Till Dawn (just the first of many that came to my head). This is a movie with a silly plot and an identity crisis. It completely changes genres half-way through. None of it makes sense, and all the characters are entirely aware of how stupid the plot is. But, it still makes you think. It still makes you feel. You empathize with the characters. They don't act like the NPCs in Call of Duty 3, which is more than can be said for most of the characters in Jurassic World.

    Plenty of stupid movies still have a whole lot of heart, and they make you think about what the writer and/or director was trying to achieve. I don't understand why so many people have this "turn your brain off" mentality. Why would I want to waste ~2 hours gaining absolutely nothing from the experience? That's what your asking I do when you say, "Turn off your brain."
