    Here's an unpopular opinion on film!

    Film proliferates and encourages the damaging idea of escapism, which in turn undermines people from improving the very life they want to escape from. Film has the power to change -- to change us into introverted shoegazers obsessed with self-analysis, or violent, wannabe machos who ape big-screen alpha males, or high-brow, sneering outcasts who won't consider you on their intellectual level unless you can recite Truffaut on demand. Film could unite us and provide a platform for self betterment, but mostly all I see in film these days is reinforcement of negative stereotypes, the encouragement of black and white morality, misogyny, the objectification of women, and the rewards of violence, so long as you are on the side of the "just".
