>"Dude, turn off your brain" isn't a legitimate retort when watching a fantasy, capeshit, or comedy film

whatever you say sweetie

>Id's about wizards and dwaguns why does it need internal consistency
>>
>>97358219
ok babe
>>
>>97358243
yes, that is a valid point
>>
>>97358179
>where’s the reality in my unrealistic film?!
>>
>>97358179
Yes it isn't. Asking to lose your humanity to enjoy a movie is like asking an adult to cut off his limbs to fit in a kid's ride.
>>
>>97358348
>Asking to lose your humanity
God are you obnoxious
>>
>>97358408
Ho sorry for my speciesism.
>asking to lose your status of mentally enabled life form.
>>
>>97358179
this. it's what brainlets, whose brains being on or off makes no diffrence, say because they are too stupid to understand why they don't like a movie.
>>
>>97358408
um, that's not an argument, sweetie.
>>
>>97358243
no one says "dude turn your brain off lmao" about movies that don't have internal consistency, though
they say that about movies that aren't melodramatic enough for their tastes
>>
>>97358179
>Spending even 5 seconds thinking about how magic works in the movie beyond "it just does I guess"
And then you'll complain you didn't really understand it, fuck off. Stop spending time trying to figure shit like that out, it'll only make your experience work.
>>
>>97358542
>no one says "dude turn your brain off lmao" about movies that don't have internal consistency
People actually do that a lot.
>>
>>97358179
works for horror too.
It saves a lot of movies. trying to analyze things like Street Trash and Basket Case 3: The Progeny isn't gonna do you any favors so SHUT UP.

>world has supernatural events or things that is consistent within the universe
>call out an inconsistency
>"dude it has *well established thing* why are you complaining about *thing that doesn't make sense even in that universe*!"
>>
"turn your brain off" is another way of saying that you enjoyed a movie that wasn't deep in any substantial way at a base level, and there is nothing wrong with that. Only a true pleb is unable to enjoy both smart films and dumb movies.
>>
>>97358179
>"This is unrealistic"
Is not a legitimate criticism for fantasy or comedy
>>
>>97358654
you actually caught me, people nitpick TLJ way too hard. star wars has always been dumb.
>>
>>97358179
If I wanted to turn my brain on, I’d read instead of having a movie do the thinking for me.

Good thing I can still like movies.
>>
>Magic can't do that
>*Dudes Magic does just that
>He's special
When this is one of the most common explanation for anomalies a genre has, you are allowed to turn your brain off.
>>
>>97358778
>people nitpick TLJ way too hard
Yeah people do that with shit movies all the time, TLJ is no exception
>>
>>97358884
correction: people do that to movies they don't like all the time. if you enjoyed the movie, you don't give a shit about plot holes and "consistency". seriously, people were mad about tlj for separate reasons, it's dumb to imagine it was because of muh hyperspace ramming.
>>
>>97358681
No, "turn your brain off" is an excuse used to defend truly shit movies.
I know right because I enjoy what you'd call "dumb" movies, which are just low budget movies but with a soul/heart.
If you look around here, "turn your brain off" is almost exclusively used to defend capeshit.

So if Rick from the Walking Dead sprouted wings and started flying through the universe it would be ok because the show has Zombies?
>>
>>97358992
>it's dumb to imagine it was because of muh hyperspace ramming
Well if you can enjoy something that relies in a plot hole as wide and retarded as hyperspace ramming is in TLJ, you shouldn't be talking about being dumb
>>
>>97359343
Walking Dead is not fantasy or comedy.
>>
>>97359311
It's essentially the movie form of calling people fascists.
>>
>>97359606
Then replace it with Jamie Lannister from Game of Thrones
>>
>>97359606
I'd call it dark fantasy or horror fantasy desu.
>>
>>97359691
The point is, a winged human in Game of Thrones isn't out of place in a fantasy setting. People watch this genre to see shit that wouldn't happen in real life

>they'd be wiped out on an open field
> dude, this is a world were DRAGON and MAGIC exist, stop being a sperg

Any argument like this literally makes me REEEEEEEEEE
>>
>>97359940
Yes but in a narrative there has to be some form of consistency, you can't just have random nonsense happen just because it's a fantasy show.
>>
>>97359463
I have an IQ of around 143. You shouldn't talk about being dumb to me.
>>
>>97358791
Books are smarter than movies, you are a fool
>>
>watching GotG 2 with 2 beta brainlets
>laugh at the "suspense", "acting" and CGI diarrhea
>stay dead silent during the quips and dance numbers

You could see the discomfort in their faces. They're 100% used to "enjoying" capeshit the usual way.
