That's just another way in which TV presents falsity. I mean we all know about how fake even the TV news is, and what it does to our brain waves etc... but I'd never before really thought about the fact that even when presenting something seemingly tailor made for the medium like a movie, TV still fails to provide an accurate reproduction, it's interesting.
I saw "The Ring" tonight and haven't gotten to Adaptation yet which I'll watch in the morning. Watching films, especially interesting films (I'm speaking here more of the Kauffman/Jones works than the somewhat scary but not overwhelming horror flick) always calms me and gets me back into a better mood. I don't know why that is exactly, maybe it's a sedating effect but that's not all it is because they CAN inspire me to do stuff or find other things interesting. After I see a really good movie for the first time I generally want to DO something, I'm not content and bland feeling.
It's really annoying how movie reviewers will refer to an actor instead of a character. I guess as a person who sympathises with writers I get annoyed when someone makes a claim that takes away from a writer's power. The actor does not always make the role, and most of the time when someone says something like "This role could only have been played by X" they are just plain wrong.
