Last night I was watching a review of a series run and while I enjoyed the show the reviewer pointed out a lot of mishaps,missed poteintal's and other mistakes in knowledge of warfare and such that I honestly didn't noticed before yet they make sense. So I was wondering that while watching a show/movie,playing a game,or just reading a novel for example does one need to have critical thinking in order to enjoy and understand a story in a different media because if you don't you seem less intelligent with no taste and doesn't know a good story when he sees one or is it really another form of opinion and it doesn't matter how you think it just as long as what you think counts. I know it has to do with opinions in the end but I wonder if one has to be very critical in aynalisis and such in order to see a good story and enjoy it or else he's doomed to be ignorant? What are your thoughts? And if this the wrong forum to post this at feel free to move it.
