I actually created a decent discussion on the topic of entertainment, and it’s relationship with movies came into play.

They’re actually a great combatant to fighting depression because of the access to different emotions we get as the viewers.

It helps us as watchers feel less isolated in a very territorial world.

In effect, it helps people detach from a world of different problems.

But from a story standpoint, it allows us to bond with a character, or multiple ones that we want to do well or fail in life.

It’s interesting, because it removes the need to be in front of another to person to still make a connection.
