Watching a movie
Anyone else have this Im watching another movie I know Ive seen it but its as if Ive never seen it before I have no memories of anything thats happening Ive noticed this happens with all movies its kind of strange. I can watch movies over and over but it feels like its the first time
I have a slightly related problem in the other direction that makes it pretty difficukt to watch movies now. The first time I see a actor in a movie, my mind cements that character as who "they" are. If I see a actor outside of a movie, I’ll think of the original character. When I see that character in another movie, I compare their current acting to their previous character. I’ve pretty much stopped watching movies outside of what my friends and family want to see becaue it is so distracting
Yes – I’m the same. I don’t know whether that’s aphantasia, or SDAM.
Yes, definitely. I have this with trips I have taken as well.
I kind of know what you mean, I guess because we cannot visualise anything we are just relying on our memory. For instance, Sixth Sense, I know he’s dead (plot reveal ), and a few of the other details of the film, for example the people hanging in the school (I think), and about his wife, but as I watch it I generally don’t remember whats going to happen.
Question: Same or different for reading a book that is not so visual?
