There's holes, gaps, and other problems -- my suggestion to you would be to just try to relax a little and enjoy the escapism. When escapism becomes work, an obssession [sic], or is just stressing you out in general, then it's not doing its job and you need to take a step back and take a breather."''

->"''The ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' movies are all entitled to some dumb moments. They recapture the spirit of the old adventure films that came out during The Great Depression and World War II. Audiences were looking to [[ItsNotSupposedToWinOscars escape the real world and forget about their troubles]]. And that's what movies are all about: entertainment. But today, audiences are far more critical, have less imagination, and aren't as willing to suspend their disbelief; and that is the death of cinema."''

In ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' — No. 1 movie of 2014 by U.S. gross — everybody's fighting over a magical stone. Finding and possessing a small mystical object is the MacGuffin of many box-office smash flicks. OK, they are movies. But how many times in the real world has a single small object controlled the fates of millions?\\
'''Drew Magary''': Never! Totally ruined the movies for me. And to think, I cared about this magic 'ring' when no such magic rings occur in nature! And that spaceship in ''Film/{{Close Encounters|OfTheThirdKind}}''! How many times have YOU seen a spaceship in real life? Laughable... I'm gonna hire someone to do their taxes on fucking camera and then send it to Gregggggg for his approval. It'll be his favorite movie ever. WHAT AN ABSOLUTE PENIS.
