Watching movies Vs Reading novels
I disagree with the statement that reading friction (such as novels and short stories) is more enjoyable than watching movies. In the following paragraphs, I wish to describe the reason for my disagreement.
Though fiction provides enjoyment but its nature of far from reality compared to movies makes me less enjoyable. If an enjoyment is far from reality it has no meaning. One has to be capable enough to imagine a dream world but should not be habituated to live in that dream world. Though movies also have this kind of fiction as you are visualizing the things which are not possible in real life you will have an exact picture of it and its limitations. But the same cannot be possible in case of reading novels and short stories as they cannot provide you the visualization of that fantasy.
Another thing that makes me less enjoyable in case of reading novels and short stories is, you cannot participate in a group activity while doing this action. You have to read alone and feel the experience of it. But watching a movie can be done as a group activity and you can share and enjoy every moment and experience of it. Not only that, while reading a novel or short story, you need to pay a lot of attention compared to watching a movie. Your eye has to focus on each and every line of the book containing small characters and should be proficient in the language used by the author of that book. But in case of a movie, generally common language is used by all characters, which is easy to understand.
One more thing that makes me more interested in watching movies than reading novels is, a movie can be completed in a scheduled as well as short period of time whereas that cannot be possible incase of a novel. An activity carried out for enjoyment should be time bound but not unlimited. It should be refreshing to mind but not as another work.
Based on the above all facts, I enjoy watching a movie more than reading a novel or short story.
