It’s not just that we’re going to the movies more often. We are also just as interested in film culture as we’ve ever been. Going to the movies is not only about blowing off steam and having a laugh. It can also be a way of appreciating art and learning lessons about ourselves and the world. To know about a few reasons as to why watch movies, read on.
Learning from movies
Films can shape the way we’re making sense of the world we’re living in right now – regardless of the period that they’re set in. Although that obviously depends on which movie you watch. But a good documentary or an intelligent historical drama can educate you on important issues and events in a much more interesting and enjoyable way than a dry old textbook.
Movies can make you more emotionally intelligent too. Watching movies can change our perspective on the people and issues we encounter every day, as well as increasing our understanding and sensitivity to people and issues in places we may never visit before.
