In today’s world there is so much to explore and unveil. The world awaits out there to let you walk into all these opportunities BUT which means would you prefer?
I can tell you experiences from both sides of the coin; come on you’ve gotta accept that how much ever you love books you’ve seen AT LEAST a SINGLE movie?!
Movies are realistic.I accept this and I happen to remember quite a disgusting incident in which I bit a bloody popcorn.( Yep, that was a pun) I was watching ‘The Jurassic World’ in 3D and I bit through a popcorn, just in time, for my eyes to meet that disgusting scene when the Dinosaur ‘scrunches’ up a human soldier. Eeks! I felt as though my mouth was filled with blood. FYI: I’m not a cannibal, so I obviously didn’t find it amusing. I guess this is the attraction factor for movies: Movies are realistic.
Are books realistic?! YES THEY ARE!! Do you disagree?! Read on. You will agree. Some say books are no realistic in any manner. I believe words are stronger than anything. An author’s words utilised in the book are enough to bring the reader to his/her world. Let me share with you another incident. I was reading this book called ‘Murder most unlady like’. The detective finds the victim’s body and the detective unknowingly feels the victim’s coat collar noticing it is slightly red and once discovering it was blood, she hastily rubs it upon her skirt. At this time I was licking tomato sauce! I guess you would understand, I felt like puking.
Well, considering both these incidents, you would think I have a huge appetite as both involve me eating something or the other. It’s quite the opposite story here. You know, I just happen to adopt the gene of multi – tasking from my mum!😉
Pros and Cons!
Watching horror movies result in the adrenalin junkies getting real pleasure out of being scared, but in a variety of ways they are risking our physical and mental health. When we watch an intense scene in a film our heart rate and blood pressure increases. This can and does lead to heart attacks.
Horror books, in change do make you get excited, but since you don’t view it visually, it is just a picture of imagination in your mind, it isn’t much of a harm. Personally, I’m not into all this horror stuff! I just try to make a big joke of it!
Here’s something for movie – lovers. Comedies, help lower your blood pressure!!😇😇When you laugh for extended periods of time your blood vessels dilate. Intense laughter for 15 minutes during a film has the same effect as exercising.
Ummm….. No…. I don’t think reading a book for 15 minutes makes you feel as energetic as exercising, BUT reading a book does energise your mind rapidly!
Hey, That’s quite amusing! Children who watched short clips from the Harry Potter films, specifically ones that involved the use of magic, scored significantly higher on a creative thinking test than other children.
In this case, they quite have to share the credit. I guess it is the same effect as watching a movie or reading a book, they make you creative (I love the Harry Potter series, it’s quite obvious because my username includes ‘Rowling’) and they do quite benefit both sides of the coin.
Here’s something for boys who LOVE these action films!
If exposed to violence through entertainment, it leads to ACTUAL REAL LIFE violence. Overall the answer to that is probably still up in the air, but a new study proves that watching aggression over the screen, you do experience REAL LIFE violence, even if it is just in the short term. Wait till my bro hears this!!🙌
Books, on the other hand do contain violence on certain areas, but I would say, just like I said previously, it is just imagination, so I feel it’s not much harm.
Oh yeah! Just remembered, I found this pic over Google.
I’d say the majority of the good movies that are shoot, are book – derived stories. For instance, J.K Rowling’s all famous Harry Potter series, John Boyne’s book about the concentration camp, The Boy in the striped Pyjamas, Markus Zusak’s Book Thief…. Here’s a tip for these type of books: See the movie, then read the book. I tried it out. You may feel that once you’ve seen the movie, what’s the use of reading the book, but here’s the catch, the movie won’t be able to nor won’t cover all the important details, so you may feel that a few things are unexplained. When you read the book, you can really ‘taste’ or ‘feel’ the book and appreciate it more. Though, if you don’t feel it very appraising, you can do it the way you like.
Never judge a book by its cover, never judge a movie by its poster and NEVER judge a book by its movie!!😎😎
