How we <i>really</i> watch a movie – scanners
Whenever research confirms something we feel we already knew intuitively, or from our own experience, there are always people who'll scoff and say, "Well, I could have told you that!" And maybe they could have, but that's not the point. Science is a discipline involving systematic observation and empirical evidence, not unverified hunches. Movies, of course, are optical illusions — photographic, electronic and/or mechanical phenomena that exploit the peculiarities of our eyes and brains… and elicit all manner of feelings. They are science and they are sometimes art, and the methods of studying one or the other can be complementary.
