>there are actually people out there who prefer film over literature
The experience is different, and since film is a younger medium, and often has a profit motive attached the quality is often less.
That said works like The Seventh Sign or Jagten
or Conan the Barbarianhave given me feels that are equal to literature.
No it's just incredibly unlikely because you don't know how to even into bell-curves. You're implying that you're part of the .0008% of the population with a 165+ IQ, that's very unlikely.
And somehow reading a book isn't a passive experience.
Yeah, I never understood what the difference was.
That said, /lit/ master race. Compare the experience of watching to greatest films to the experience of watch the greatest novels. Yeah. /lit/ wins every time.
Different strokes for different folks
If you're really unironically making these kinds of comparative value judgements about totally different mediums, then you must not actually understand art at all.
you're a shithead for saying that
nobody here is a 12 year old gifted program student, so nobody is threatened by you.
I don't think it's a choice. I got very interested in films and feelings that pictures can evoke. My father and my sister spend most of their free time reading, somehow I rarely enjoy reading.
I felt bad about it for a while and I still think it's a pity
