Monsters in the movies, just as other powerful symbols, can teach us a lot.
Example: Frankenstein's Creature. Because of how it looked, everybody treated it with extreme fear and attacks, and it reacted fearfully and destructively. But then it met the old blind man, who couldn't see the apparently ugliness, and so just treated it as a potential friend, and they became friends. An excellent symbol of what we get back from the world is merely what we project upon it.

I enjoy movies and good TV shows a lot as relaxation. But I also use my hyper-active mind constructively by applying forgiveness when I'm watching. Double reward.
