Whether it is a realistic and emotional drama, a workplace comedy, or a super-heroic adventure throughout the universe, what we watch is–at some level–an exaggerated or fictitious version of reality; a “tall tale”. Yet, just because something belongs to the realm of make-believe does not mean it does not possess some very real truths.
“Fairy tales are more than true: not because the tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” -Neil Gaiman

While entertainment is obviously meant to entertain, at a deeper and more intimate level the things we watch are actively shaping our worldview and the ideas and people we interact with. So join me and let’s delve even further into what they offer to us both as individuals and as members of this wonderful world.
That all kinda sounds pretentious. What I am trying to say is: movies & tv = fun, movies & tv also = life lessons. This website is an excuse for me to invite everyone else to geek out with me over the deeper meanings behind everything.
