Once was lost and still ain't found.
Did somebody what?
Recomend to you media they actively dislike.
Nope. Nothing like that.
I think I gotcha now, but don't know if this is the venue to slowly, wordily, prove I'm wrong in my assumption. Sufficed to say, if you put down the book or change the video you can always put on something you like or find something new.Literally, though, I watched a part of the season finale of Game of Thrones on my home from California and found the storyline that captured my interest more than the others to end in the most horrifically graphic scene I've ever watched. Gruesome. Shocking. Shocking. Shocking.I'd recommend that.(I should also mention I've seen nothing else Game of Thrones)
I think a lot of things considered 'great' are horrible. So I would do it, if I thought the other party might be interested.And maybe even if I thought they should be interested. Take example the movie I watched tonight. Her. I thought it was horrible. It didn't feel believable. It wasn't like when Tom Hanks befriended and then lost Wilson. I think it could have been so much more. But I would tell quite a few people to watch it. Because I think we are going to see examples of it before we are dead. We must decide if this is disturbing or not :D
So, you're saying that even though you didn't like Her you would recommend it to people? Why?
Because I think it merits discussion. Because as AI becomes more and more advanced, I see it happening. Because, knowing the tastes of a few people I know, they would probably like it. Because I felt it was a tad on the creepy side and want to know if others felt the same. That's not saying I would endorse anything else: hairspray, a brand of cheese, medications...things that could potentially harm or ruin lives. Books, tv, movies...that's just a bit of wasted (or not) time.
A movie that you didn't care for but find interesting you would recommend, but what about one that you find no redeeming qualities in?My example, I don't like The Matrix, the first one. I think it's action is okay, it's science is insanely absurd to the point of annoyance, and the "philosophy" has been better explored in cartoons. I have never recommended this movie to anyone and never will, even if they might like action movies. I wouldn't want to waste their time because those hours were a waste of my time that would have been better served watching Darby O'Gill and the Little People again.
I don't like The Matrix. Have you watched the Reboot cartoon? I would probably recommend no redeeming qualities only to my friends who enjoy no redeeming qualities. I think this is ok to do. I've sat through a lot of movies with friends. You get to know they're taste. I probably wouldn't go around wearing a t-shirt that says "American Pie, Watch It or Die". But yes, that is two good reasons to recommend something you didn't like. Because you know someone who might like it and because it has the potenial to generate interesting discussion. What's the third reason?
