>>105098444>It shouldn't bother you so fucking much if someone dislikes something you enjoy.
Except this is wrong. Works of fiction are based on real life themes and concepts, so if you and another person have different opinions, it might be a good indicator of your worldview, or even psychological difference.
For example, if a person says they disliked Space Oddysey, most of the time it means they weren't entertained by it. Which means entertainment value is the only thing they care about. Which, in turn, might mean they generally have a more extraverted, hedonistic and frivolous lifestyle than you. So communication might be difficult.
Absolute worst case scenario (and sadly, the most realistic one): the person doesn't even have a real opinion on a work of fiction. When a convo goes like this:>"So what did you think about the movie?">"I dunno, I disliked they did that one stupid cliche in that one moment; I hate this cliche; This is clearly a movie for plebs since it uses this cliche">"Anything else that stood out to you?"
"Uh, I dunno"
Apparently in their head, the entire movie is just this cliche. Or maybe they are just trying to find something to say about the movie. Either way, it shows lack of interest or passion, which, as I came to find out, is not coincidental: people like this act the same way to the majority pf things in life, not really caring about anything, just constantly trying something to say, latching onto easy superficial labels.
