Movies, TV shows, video games, and sports are some of the many things that form the world these days. They truly are amazing privileges, but, do we make these things a little overrated? Do we take them a little too far?
As you walk through the hallways, listen. You will most likely hear some of the songs from the “most amazing movie on this planet” which so happens to be “Frozen”. It’s true that I enjoy the movie, perhaps even love it; but have we exploited its ideas and lyrics a little too much? Many people who originally watched the movie and loved it, now hate it, due to the over usage of its songs and phrases.
We make movies and games, for our enjoyment, that is correct, but when we overuse some of the ideas in movies, it gets pretty annoying. I admit that I obsess over Nintendo’s “Legend of Zelda” series, and other things of that nature, but we all need to keep it to ourselves. If things come up in a conversation, that’s fine, but I don’t think it’s right to just approach people and ask them to build a snowman when there’s not a single snowflake on the ground.
Sports are another large subject. Some people act as though a sport is their whole life. Sports are interesting, but if talking badly about a team can cause a fight, it’s taken too seriously.
Another movie that gets a lot of hype is “The Breakfast Club”, seemingly the other “most amazing movie on this planet”. I, truthfully, haven’t seen the whole movie, and when people hear that, they treat it like it’s a deadly sin and I truthfully don’t get that. It’s a bunch of kids in detention, but I understand how amazing it is to others.
There are many awesome television shows too: “Supernatural”, “Doctor Who”, and “The Big Bang Theory”, as well as there are other amazing games, movies, and other entertaining things.
We all have our own loves in this world. Just take a look at the “Comic- cons”. We all love something or another, but sometimes we take this a little too seriously. If we exaggerate these subjects, the feeling of it is just overused and it disappears.
