I can’t count the times I’ve heard someone express their discontent about a movie or book that just seems too far-fetched. The much-hated Twilight series is a perfect example – Edward and Bella’s love is too strong to be possible, they are too irrational, in the movie Kristen Stewart is just too awkward. Well, that last part might be true, but regarding the first two, you just have to believe.
Suspension of disbelief is crucial when watching a movie or reading a book.
This doesn’t mean you can’t look at it with a critical eye. Believe me, when I leave a theater, I have a lot to say (usually to the dismay of my friends). But when the fictional world you are entering gives you parameters (ie. love so strong that it conquers even undead adversaries), they have to be accepted or the story won’t make sense.
It really becomes a question of if, as an audience member, you want to enjoy yourself. If you have such a problem that you can’t suspend your disbelief of the given circumstances, that’s your choice. But, you won’t have fun.
Movie tickets and books are kind of expensive, so I choose to have fun.
