I’m the kind of person you can be talking to whilst I’m watching something and I will be unable to hear you. I get super absorbed into everything, ads, movies, books, people, thoughts, etc. I binge watch everything and totally absorb myself into what I consume. I prefer to watch an entire series of something in a day and struggle waiting weekly for episodes.
How I determine if I like or dislike something:
When coming out of a state of absorption, I get really really mad if what I’ve dumped myself into has resulted in a waste of my time. Example; Ad is made well rather than just loud noises, fine. Movie had some decent dialogue between a few women, fine. TV series provided me with some mental understanding about the world, fine. But all these things do not equate 'time well spent', but I will not be angry that my time was consumed because I can appreciate someone else's time spent on creation. Everyone can respect the beauty of another person, but not everyone will define it as 'their type'. To truly like something there some unique ‘sparking notion’ that its been worth it, I don't consume similar products afterwards.
I can spend 20 hours watching something though, if I believe its going to a good point. Say with Zoo which I recently watched on netflix (in 2020). Not horrible but not fantastic, what I would call an average American tv series. I watched it for three seasons, to get my epiphany scene, where the doc stood looking at the chick in the cage and talked about inner darkness and I was like, well… that’s why I watched this show, gg. Punched me right in the heart XD, and has sparked a list of sporadic thoughts for me. If you obtain 'something' that changes you, propels you, makes you think, educates you, etc; I deem this a profitable use of time. Even a show that aims to connect to your subconscious and be a time-wasting luxury, can often still move you to change. It is as to whether it is 'the right one for you' that will create a change.
That is what I define as good in my perception, everyone of course has the right to their own investment in luxury :).
What genres I prefer:
I love noir and dystopian themes, I love movies that psychologically inflict epiphanies about life on you whether psychological, spiritual, etc... and to get those things, its generally important that the movies are grounded in some sense of simulating human consciousness. The more I feel the character shares my traits the more I connect and can be taken for its, ‘ride’.
Things I connect to generally:
Femme fatales, aloof clumsy characters, wise characters (hippies, gandalfs, similar to this man's daughter [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueOqYebVhtc], etc), outcasts (either tech nerd, goth alternative, foreigners, etc).
In terms of look, people who look aggressive. I refer to this as the ‘bulldog’ characterisation. Which means that even if there is no cause to think so, societal assumptions are that people presume you are evil even if your nice and just want to lick their face. This is because I look like this also to strangers, so I bond readily with these characters.
I enjoy when a show or movie makes the character female, but generally its masculine as hegemonic masculinity unscientifically claimed ownership over testosterone. I do love males in this role, I have no issue projecting myself into a male character, but over time it does become a bit of a burn if its overdone and there is no variation. Got to throw an Alien amongst a James Bond at least every 2 in 12 (but clinical psychology would argue that it needs to be 4 in 10 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLyPVgeH-jo). I do understand why the tradition is there and I do not argue with hegemonic masculinity being the default for the characterisation. Though I have rights to say overuse of anything is boring.
Watching movies with you:
I appreciate all things people like and will generally sit down and watch whatever. If I get bored I will absorb myself in mentally critiquing its cinematography to amuse myself and then tell you all I learnt about it after its over :).
If you ever ask me what ‘I want to watch’ with you, about 90% of the time I will opt for a documentary. I like to have a discussion about things and love to watch peoples mind’s blown. I also don’t forget when other people showed me theirs too… I remember the person who first showed me Zeitgeist. I remember who showed me What the bleep do you know, I remember who led me to finding MAAFA 21… etc.
I have huge lists of documentaries I have seen, I write notes, I go research whats been in them and jump down that lengthy black hole. So, I respect people whom give me knowledge because I know I am only one person. So I also like to do the same for others. If you don’t know something that I show you, I don’t think you lesser, I think I’ve ‘sped you through needing to look for it yourself’.
I have met a lot of people in my life, and connected to a lot of people. The only way to stand out in that sea of people is to give me something I would have wanted to try and find myself. It’s not necessarily for the Other to be identical to me, it’s just who I am and if that meshes well with what you like in your environment than that’s fine.
In terms of mainstream movies:
Generally, ones that pass the Bechdel Test [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bechdel_test#Criteria_and_variants].
If a movie doesn’t pass it, even if it’s great, there won’t be as much inward pull for me to want to see it. Some do, obviously. Especially if there is only 3 actors in the entire movie or something, but of course the more ‘mainstream’ the movie is, the more likely it is to have a huge cast.
This is called projection (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_projection); I at least need to know its an actual real universe. As a generalisation, women talk to other women more than women talk to men, so a movie must go with that psychological norm to feel its set amongst human consciousness. A movie just feels really weird if it doesn’t pass the Bechdel test, like its not grounded in reality and its just this inward off-putting subconscious notion that the movie is somehow boring. Just an overall sense that can be hard to pinpoint at the time. As obviously I pass it all the time, though not every day, so not in everything I watch is it important likewise.
In a novel, there are terms for this also where it must have an apex point and a resolution for the human consciousness to connect to it. If it doesn’t have it, psychologically, its unlikely your book will sell because people have an overall dissatisfaction with what they have read. Plot is important, pacing is important, and so is projection. I studied some film critique in my life both in English extension class at school and then within my journalism diploma due to film reviewing being a part of journalism. Also, I write novellas myself. So when I see a mainstream movie, I see it within immersion, but also have strong ability in hindsight and at points to work out if what I’m seeing is actually ‘not shit’.

The Corbett Report (2007)
One of the greatest things that ever happened to my life
It is no exaggeration to say that finding this series was one of the greatest things to happen to my life. I am a pretty wild person who has lived in multiple countries, obtained a few degrees, etc, and I stand by the statement that this series and it's creator have brought about a damning change to my own strength of character in ways that most things have not.
I spend a lot of my time researching my opinions. I consider myself extremely well read on a huge variety of topics and read quite an extensive amount of peer-reviewed literature. I enjoy this, and yet I commonly find myself speaking to people whom do not. They instead find themselves relying on mainstream media for the entirety of their knowledge. Which doesn't just irk me, but actually spurs a huge range of confrontations where people are enraged when you present actual science to them. Rather than the 'science presented by mainstream media'.
Finding the Corbett Report is like something breathing life back into the journalism genre. James is a fantastic independent journalist whom has spent what seems like a lifetime worth of hours in this series. He is commonly cited by other Journalists as being one of the hardest working people in this field.
This series discusses history and the more recent developments affecting those areas (such as court trials about historical events), covers some recent news stories, brings to light new websites and journalists, etc. Through all his research does not shy away from saying things which others may find too touchy to discuss. His work is high a resounding high quality and this show has over 80 million views on youtube alone and his work speaks to that quality. With each upload getting at least 30,000 views. The highest view count on any one video is 3.3M. Those numbers being only on youtube, not counting the downloads from his website which is where most of the series is viewed I'd imagine and viewership on the other platforms like BitChute, LBRY, Facebook and Minds.
For me personally; with how much I know about the world. Knowing there is somewhere I can go and watch someone dedicated on bringing actual real information. Rather than just regurgitation, which the mainstream media is known for. The deviation from the mainstream media into providing actual real journalism makes me actually feel safe. Knowing there is somewhere to go where I can watch actual information. When I watch the mainstream media I walk away wondering if I have wasted my time, if I have learnt anything of actual use to me. Watching Corbett, I always feel I actually gained something. I gained knowledge. That is something I feel is something so rare, and therefore, it is no exaggeration to say that finding this series was one of the greatest things to happen to my life.
For anyone who actually likes to actually know stuff... this is the series for you.
Extra bonus: The community on the website is pretty cool. Good place to talk to people whom also give a crap about the world.
