Beauty vs. Plot

One of the biggest things everyone stresses when writing a book is plot (and characters, and settings, and ….). But is the same true for the big screen?

No. At least not for me.

Movies have the ability to show much more than just plot, though it should still be there as well. I have personally gone to many movies for the music, visual affects, or just the beauty (for example, Beauty and the Beast, which may be the prettiest movie I’ve ever seen).


I’m not saying that plot isn’t important – it is. But sometimes, a movie is just so beautiful, that the plot isn’t the most memorable thing.
