2. I freak out over foreshadowing. Yet again, I get jerked out of the story with a realization like this. Usually it is a bad thing when that happens to a viewer, but that happens to me all of the time now.
4. I get extremely upset when the filmmakers "stole" one of my ideas. This has actually happened to me...sort of. The trailer basically was the plot of The Clockshifter, my current WIP. Thankfully when I watched the full movie (how could I not when they potentially took my idea!), it was very different from my novel. What movie was that? Well, I wouldn't want to give too much away would I? :)
I used to be able to sit down and be pulled into a movie, not leaving the story until the end. Now I find that is not the case. Am I complaining? Of coarse not! I am studying the art of storytelling. Maybe I will write just as good plot twists, forshadowing, and character development as I see in the movies.
I was inspired to write this post by reading Melody's thoughts on Tomorrowland.
