I was listening to the Empire Spoiler podcast for X-Men Apocalypse yesterday and something similar came up. There was a mention about a potential spoiler in the trailer, and one of the people pointed out that we watch films for many reasons other than the story...or else why would we watch movies again and again.
I went through a period where I watched Die Hard a couple of times a month. And I used to watch Jerry Maguire rather regularly when I couldn't sleep.
I still have movies that I watch or books that I read that are my comfort/feelgood books or movies..This is all my roundabout what of saying that maybe we don't grow out of it entirely.
