    Weird, to me that you don't watch a good, well-acted, well-directed, well-told story with many suspense, thrill if not action-packed like Captain American: Civil War just because you can figure out the ending...

    Seems like a LACK of appreciation for art. That you only would respect or appreciate the most intellectual, unpredictable stuff that would surprise you but not the Art of it.


    To each their own, but I really LOVE art!

    I don't like predictability, but I think there are different kinds of predictability. I dont like the predictibility of most procedurals and typical superhero movies. But in some cases, it is more tolerable. Like when you think a main character might die, but know that it wouldnt make sense to kill them off. I am still interested in seeing how they get out of a life-threatening situation. (If you identify with a protagonist, which typically is intended in the writing, then it is pretty easy to want them to get out of it but not necessarily see the answer yourself). What bothers me more is when that plot line is implausible or an obvious "deus ex machina".

    It's all rubbish anyway, why bother.

    Go sweep the floor, make dinner, do 20 squats - much better uses of your time.

    INTJ - The Scientists

    Sometimes struggle with pop culture, especially a lot of the comic book films coming out now. I really liked the first Iron Man because I thought it went outside the norm of comic book films and was more character driven. Now I kind of feel like Marvel is doing much of the same with their material; some of it good, some of it not.

    Then again, I was never a big comic book reader as a kid, strangely enough (I kind of had boyish interests growing up).

    I've never had any interest for big time Hollywood films, especially the Oscar bait ones. There are a few exceptions to this, usually The Weinstein Company will release a film that catches my eye every once in awhile.

    It doesn't seem as though I can't enjoy these things for that particular reason. Actually I quite enjoy the fact that I often can made a prediction almost right at the beginning and be validated at the end.

    I find I can't enjoy reading novels these days because of my ADHD.
    I was very precocious when it came to reading, I was constantly taking any chance I could get to read. From novels to dictionaries to instructions. I just liked reading and taking new information in.
    Now in the recent years I struggle to concentrate and absorb what I am reading. I do not like to use ereaders because I find it is worse when I am reading on a screen. It is really frustrating and has sucked the fun out of reading.

    I don't really have that kind of trouble. I don't get any satisfaction out of anticipating things like that in advance, so I don't think consciously about what'll happen next or how it'll end if I can avoid it. Relaxing and watching a film unfold is an enjoyable experience of just being in the moment for me, and reading is similar.

    I don't tend to get excited about unpredictable twists, anyway. I'm more interested in the aesthetic experience, the craft of the medium, the internal logic of the story, and the ideas that are touched on. I try to avoid spoilers, but I've enjoyed several things plenty even when I've had the big reveal spoiled ahead of time, so I don't think it always makes a huge difference.

    I'll get annoyed if the ending's inane, of course, or if the whole thing was a dull rehash, but that's a different issue. Until it's clear that that's the case, I don't sit there worrying that that's where it's going or hoping that it's not. I'm just watching, or reading.

    On the contrary, it gives me great pleasure to see if my predictions will come true or not. I enjoy the feeling of 'Wtf was that. I'm so awesome. I will rule the world one day. *Insert tongue in cheek*' when I'm correct. Instead, I tend to focus on the acting, the expressions actors/actresses use, how convincing they are. I lose interest when they feel fake, so it also takes the enjoyment out of the movies and tv-series. Badly written books can have an amusing side, like 'how bad can it get', if I feel like putting up with them.

    Watch and read better stuff. Such as...

    This has been happening with regularity lately, which is one major reason I hardly watch movies anymore. Hollywood Blockbusters can be entertaining, in moderation. I can almost predict the ending to most films fairly quickly at this point. But then again I tend to go for entertainment that doesn't make me think too hard, like urban fantasy novels. Maybe it's due to near constant contemplation, about everything.
