* I seem unable to show the appropriate emotional reaction for plot twist or dramatic event in fictional work without preparing myself. For instance in the ''Literature/HarryPotterandtheHalfBloodPrince'' water cave scene, when I read it I really didn't think much about it, just kept reading. Only when I talked to other fans who went on about the NightmareFuel and squickiness of it did I think to interpret it as such. Ditto for Dumbledore's death. BIG TEARJERKER for everybody, okay-when's-the-next-book-out for me. This happens all the time with literature and some movies, even though I am a fairly emotional person most of the time (all most more so than I'd like). Am I selectively apathetic or missing something important?

* I read ''[[Literature/LordOfTheRings The Fellowship of the Ring]]''. It was okay, but I wasn't really interested in reading the rest.

** I read Literature/LordOfTheRings in its entirety. Upon rereading, I skipped the parts with Frodo because another half was interesting.
** People keep telling me I need to read Literature/LordOfTheRings. I tried a few times, but never really got into it, I guess.
* I got halfway through "Literature/TheFaultinOurStars" before I got too bored with the plot and too annoyed with the characters to finish. Watched the movie and the only thing I liked about it was the blind dude. Didn't care enough about Augustus to cry [[spoiler: when he died.]] The [[spoiler: dog dying]] in "Film/MarleyAndMe" made me more far more emotional to be honest.

* Finally played ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance.'' For a game that everyone seems to worship, I found it... dull, at best. ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' or ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' blow it out of the water by comparison.

** This was how I felt about the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' film. I literally remember maybe 2 minutes of it.

* After seeing so much gushing and controversy surrounding it, I finally sat down and watched ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. [[AwesomeArt Outside of the gorgeous animation,]] it was simply okay. Not as good as the fans made it out to be, not as bad as the haters made it out to be. Just... okay.

** ''Skyrim''? Really? *rolls eyes* Tell me you at least got some mods first.


* Loved each successive VideoGame/AssassinsCreed (even if the original's gameplay is tedious), including ''Revelations'' and ''III'', and thought ''[[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBlackFlag Black Flag]]'' was the best since ''[[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII II]]'', but then a combination of lousy internet and a 7GB patch to fix the bugs in ''Videogame/AssassinsCreedUnity Unity]]'' made me suddenly realize I just didn't care about finishing the game or continuing with the franchise.

** Voraciously loved the first four ''Harry Potter'' books, passively enjoyed the next two, and just felt empty during the final one (which came out when I was sixteen). Haven't felt the need to pick any of them up again in over a decade and just feel vaguely bemused by peers who're still obsessed with the franchise.


Added DiffLines:

* Read the first three or four chapters of ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'', found myself still asking "who are these people?", "What are they even talking about?", and "Why should I care?" and set the book down forever.


** Read every Harry Potter book (including ''Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild'') out of a sense of obligation to my friends who are all over it, and while I found them reasonably entertaining, they did nothing for me emotion-wise. The supposedly deep philosophical messages were clichéd, shallow or outright immoral, and I never felt attached enough to any of the characters that I would laugh with them or feel sad for them. To each their own, I guess.

** I mean, it wasn't all that bad. But really, it was just JossWhedon doing the same thing he'd been doing for the past six seasons on Buffy, and we were supposed to be impressed by his post-modern riffs on narrative (which we've seen before) and a non-existent genre (the spaghetti sci-fi western)? Say what you will about Series/{{Dollhouse}}, but at least he tried to get out of his comfort zone and make something fresh.

*** My IQ has not changed after watching the show. Meh.


** Although he does wish that [[Creator/YoshiyukiTomino Tomino]] had directed something else for the 35th anniversary of Gundam, such as an anime adaptation of ''Manga/MobileSuitCrossboneGundam'' or Gaia Gear.
