Riddle me this Batman.
How come I can listen to a song or watch a music video over and over without getting bored but I can't watch a movie more than once without getting bored as shit. The fucks up with that?

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Might have something to do with the time investment that's required? Consider

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Yeah, I got the same thing going. When I watch a movie I'm done, at most I'll watch it twice or even more if its spaced over a long period of time. Only certain movies that is. A single song I can listen to it on repeat for hours, I can use it to focus on a task with no problems.

Your attention span?

Or maybe to you movies are mostly about the plot while music is an emotional experience. You know the plot so it's meh to experience that again unlike the rise and fall of a musical emotion.

RE: Riddle me this Batman.
Music is a little bit of information. It doesn't take nearly as much (time or otherwise)to process. Where as watching a movie with a deep plot needs more attention and is time consuming.
