Sweet versus bittersweet, the taste of learning...

I enjoy movies and books. These provide me with different experiences, and different perspectives, which help me correct the way I might see the world, my own observational biases. Seeing or reading from another person's point of view helps me experience the world in a way I might not.

And, there are lots of movies and books out there! One of the ways I decide if a movie or book was worth seeing is how much I felt I learned. If I was entertained, but don't feel changed, I call it "sweet", but don't recommend it to others. If the movie challenged my current thinking, in a way that actually changed the way I think, I call it "bettersweet".
