Love is Holywood......?

45 posts in this topic

A muslim brodda at work is in an arranged marriage 

 

He is North african, Big beard, all the bells and whistles 

 

When asked 'do you love your life'

 

His reply was - 'Love is Hollywood'

 

2 years later I still think about what he said...

Is it?

 

or is Holywood or any other man made medium just takes a genuine feeling which is love and manipulates it into something which is fantasy in order to give people a false sense of hope

 

Coz that shit sells, thats why every other film is a RomCom

 

its garbage but by the end of the film females (or emotional males) get gassed

 

people see it on TV and suddenly they yearn to feel something similar to make themselves want to feel exactly like the character does in the film.

 

Its a euphoric feeling but imo its not natural, its fantasy

 

 

Sticking to the point I think its a problem in todays society because it gives people false expectations especially in how they conduct themselves in a relationship

I don't think there is any real difference between family love and romantic love, apart from sexual attraction

 

when I say romantic love I mean when people have been together for a long time (over 10 years) and developed family-like bond

I don't get your point, people go to other genres of film to experience certain emotions, romcom, horror, thriller, action. It doesn't mean that being in love/ being scared/ being excited are not real life emotions

showing love in a film is easy for people to relate to because the point is they believe its a realistic real life situation

 

more so than other genres 

 

and on that point I believe this is exploited by people up top which is basically a form of manipulation and control...

 

On a very simple level its easy to find yourself in a situation where for example your g/f might have certain expectations of you because she saw Jennifer Aniston or Sarah Jessica Parker have it that way in a film, whereas the true meaning and values of love and what it represents is lost in translation so to speak as a result

 

I believe we have a whole colture built on it and it has shaped our society especially in the western world because it starts from a very young age i.e. Disney 

 

dont get me wrong I do believe in true love, the love which only a bonded family could share like Dom Dom bullets mentioned but not the kind of love which most people are led to believe...

 More realistic how? love is no more realistic than being scared/excited. Romcoms show unrealistic/over the top depictions of love (eg everyone always live happily ever after) just as slasher movies portray danger in an over the top way and Arnie movies do the same with action. IMO love is not Hollywood, but what is Hollywood is when people expect some perfect relationship or to live happily ever after.

What do you mean by people at the top using romcoms to control people?

No wires have been crossed mate. The love for a child is the same, just stronger.
