Movies or motion pictures have been around ever since man first discovered and invented cameras, and, in fact, even before that, through animate cartoons. It is a form of entertainment that is extremely popular in the world at large, thanks to dedicated filmmakers, modern advanced CGI (Computer-Generated Image) and increase in well-trained actors. However, in my opinion, watching movies is a huge waste of time for several important reasons.
First and foremost, there is no productivity value whatsoever in watching a movie. While you watch a movie, all of your attention is focused on the movie with little room for any other action, save for eating and drinking. This is necessary if one wants to enjoy the full entertainment value of a movie, such as the plot, the special effects, and the visual 'candy', the performance of the actors or even just the actors themselves. As such, you spend 2 hours, maybe even 3, just sitting and storing at moving pictures on a screen, growing fat and healthy.
Secondly, in order to make a movie interesting, many facts are twisted and exaggerated just to give viewers a sense of drama. This makes movies unrealistic and fantastical, but done skillfully; a filmmaker can make every possibility seem plausible. For example, Myth Busters have replicated a scene in the 2011 movie. The Green Hornet, where the heroes trapped in a buried car uses explosives to escape. In their experiments, they have proved that it is impossible to escape with that method, because instead of blowing a hole through the ground, the ground above the car caved in and crushed the test dolls. This warping of information can lead to disastrous consequences should any viewers attempt the stunts, or as the saying goes, ‘monkey see, monkey do’.
