Everyone has been to cinemas for at least several times, and I found all the movies which attract me most are those which can make me think and imagine afterwards. Seeing the sloth moving in a slow-motion in the movie Zootopia, I thought about the idea that all the government officers lack efficiency. After watching Point Break, I imagine all the criminals breaking laws to help people.

Most movies depict a environment similar to ours with some certain social values. As Bell Hooks mentioned, most of us go to movies for entertainment and for entering a different world which we are comfortable with.
