Car chases don’t move my emotions.  Horror is just flashing light on the screen.

At the beginning of a story, people are happy, in the middle, they have difficulty, in the end they are happy again.

I don’t feel the emotional strain, I’m not involved in seeing the TV people move in and out of safety.

There is no new information there.  It is formulaic, and Spiderman movies with good and evil characters and wanted outcomes are so obvious that I know what happens next.  I don’t get thrills if I know what happens next.

Dramatic tension is old.
