    Movies stir up your emotions and that is a really great thing about them. The times are hard which is why people turn off their emotions and pretend to be unaffected by anything happening around them. This helps them live their lives without disturbance. But while watching movies, our emotions are brought back to the surface.

    We live the lives of the characters and feel everything they feel. In this way, we are unconsciously healing through movies. Emotions help us feel human again and connect us to the universe more closely and that is why it is important to watch movies once in a while.

    Movies Encourage You To Bring Social Changes

    Movies create a parallel timeline which although is imaginary but is next to being real. A lot of movies help to encourage people and educate them about right and wrong and this inspires people to be part of social evolution and work for the betterment of society. Further, movies give you knowledge about things you don't know as they are made with a lot of background checks, research, and strong analysis on the subject and that is why they are able to connect people to the story while entertaining and educating them.
