We don't want to cry and we don't want to be scared. We cry if we lost loved ones or get scared for ghost or whatever lol, yet why do we still want to watch drama and scary movies? Do we like the idea of paying just to watch movies and then let the movies make us cry and scared? What is your stand on that?

Yeah...movies indeed keep us entertain and it is also a reflection of what our lives is. We enjoy movies, we hate movies, we laugh at movies--it marks the truth that we are humans...that we can be affected with things happening around.

movies are related to real life and real people. they are the shadows of truths and happenings in the world. scary movies and dramas are there to add flavour to life and enjoyment in ones boring life. so crying and scaring are parts which many people love bcoz these less happens in real with them. so for a change they opt these pictures.

I couldn't agree more. Stories in movies are reflection of our lives. It add spice in the world we are living, making it an important part of our lives. We have these emotions that makes us humans because we sympathize and feel we are one with the character/s.

I watch horror films for the scare. When I get worked up about a movie, it helps me forget the troubles I have in my life. To me, thinking about whether there are ghosts at night is better than wondering about money troubles

It helps us forget our problems for a while so movies are indeed good to us and yeah, it is scarier if you have troubles with money than the ghost at night. LOL
