*Cinema fans have entered the chat*
Welcome to this movie-loving, random, and hopefully funny blog. I was recently asked ‘Do you prefer movies or TV series?’ and my first thought was ‘Ooof! This is a nice topic to write about!’
And then I went through a minute wherein I questioned life and thought about which one I prefer. I am a book person, yes but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy cinema. Let me just put forth some points that have popped up in my head.
When it comes to movies, they are shorter (why am I mentioning that? It is so obvious) so it prevents a lot of sleepless nights and late-night ‘Just one more episode!’ I mostly end up watching the movie in one or two sittings so that is a plus point.
However, when it comes to TV series, it just has a different vibe! Since they are so in-depth, I feel highly connected to the characters and the plotline. Do I weirdly find myself pondering about the plot at 3 am instead of pondering about the assignment I have due the next day? YES. When I finish a series, I just feel as if I sat through a grand ride because I spent so much time watching and caring about those characters. There is a void in my life that just can’t be filled anymore…until I start a new series an hour later! Ooof such dramatic feelings!
When it comes to overthinking about the endings and characters, movies lose a point because movies are too short to have a great impact on a person (There are a lot of exceptions though!) I am speaking from experience here, people!
However, when you have nothing better to do and you decide to rewatch something, movies are usually the way to go! Cause you can watch the moments and feel good but with a series, you might have to remember which episodes are your favorites… blah blah blah.
Unless you have some kind of superhuman memory and you remember the exact time and episode, movies are leading.
Ahhh I hope these are enough arguments from both sides and my verdict is ‘I can’t choose’ but I hope you can. Let me know in the comments!
Thank you for reading! See you in the next blog!
