Why Were Musical Movies Big in the 20th Century?

Although I was born at the end of the 20th century, I still watched a lot of old movies growing up. I noticed that many of them were musicals.

Satisfying vs. Unsatisfying Movie Endings

When people watch a movie, they not only expect a good story, but also a lot of conflict.

If they don’t, then it’s either because they realized those goals weren’t what they wanted all along or they weren’t the right kinds.

You’re Never Too Old to Love Something

As children in different stages of our youth (early childhood, grade school age, and adolescence) we all had different tastes in different pop culture and entertainment.

I’m Lonely in the Minority of Certain Movie Tastes

One time, I came across an article with how to cope enjoying something most people hate or don’t like. I related so much to it, it was as if that author read my mind. He or she discussed how it could feel when you absolutely love something and look for others’ opinions, but find mostly negative reactions and how it hurts you.

OMG… These Conspiracy Theories Are, Like, So Insane
