Is Facebook Ruining Movies For You?
Over the weekend we rented “We’re the Millers.” Judging by what I had read on facebook this was supposed to be the funniest movie ever. It was a funny movie and Jennifer Anniston had some ammmaaazzzing scenes but I wouldn’t classify it as the funniest movie ever. I had a similar experience with the movie “Gravity.” Again everyone on facebook was saying how it’s the greatest movie of our lifetime. I thought it was visually stunning but the actual story was kind of weak. (A quick side story from “Gravity” as we were leaving the theater my wife and I overheard the lady in front of us complaining to her husband that the movie was really blurry and gave her a headache. She forgot to put on her 3-D glasses… D’OH!) When both of these movies ended I felt unsatisfied. I wonder if I would have enjoyed them more if I would have avoided the facebook hype prior to seeing them. What do you think? Has facebook hype ruined an experience for you?
