My favorite film? Mad Max: Fury Road. Why? Because it's unlike anything I've ever seen before in film. Best of all, practical effects and stunts. Crazy stunts, too. It's a respectable action film too that you can tell the filmmakers put a lot of effort into making.

Different people have their own opinion on what qualifies as a good movie. I like films with characters put in situations that go against their nature (Like Blade Runner). Underdog stories are also a personal favorite of mine.

I highly recommend you see Blade Runner. However, there are several different versions floating around. My personal favorite is this version.

I don't think it's science fiction, it is! It's based off renowned author, Phillip K. Dick's 1966 novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" (albeit, loosely). A Blade Runner is a type of Bounty Hunter whose sole job is to hunt down bioengineered beings, or "Replicants" and retire them (euphemism for killing them). Harrison Ford plays Rick Deckard, a former Blade Runner who is brought back to hunt down four Replicants who have returned to Earth illegally.

It's a Science Fiction/Action film that operates on multiple dramatic and narrative levels. Check it out.

I thought about this a lot while I was writing a story for Science of Us a couple years back, about why we cringe at the sound of our own voices. You can read that here
But I'll also explain it briefly. So there is an interesting physiological explanation here that's partly explains why people cringe at the sound of their own voices. We hear most sounds through air conduction, but we hear our own voices through a surround sound of sorts -- air conduction and bone conduction. And bone conduction transmits sound at a lower frequency; if you've ever heard a recording of your voice and thought it sounded higher than the way you hear it in your own head, this helps explain why.

So, okay -- that explains why your voice sounds different in a recording. But why should that make you cringe?

Most of us, most of the time, exist in our own heads. You see yourself a certain way, and we tend to assume that other people see us in the same way. You assume the "you" that exists in your own mind is the same as the "you" that other people are seeing. I think the moments that make us cringe are the moments when those to "yous" collide -- when you see that your own self-concept does not quite match the way that others are seeing you.

And I think this is true with secondhand embarrassment, too. If I cringe at someone embarrassing themselves on Twitter or something, I think it's often because I can see how they thought they were presenting themselves, and I can also see how badly they misjudged that.

The developmental psychologist Philippe Rochat has a term for this: "the irreconcilable gap." It's the gap between the way you see yourself, and the way the world sees you. Bonus reading! His 2009 book Others in Mind was a big influence on my book. It is fascinating!!! All about how self-consciousness forms in babies (he thinks we start to become concerned with that "irreconcilable gap" as early as 18 months!).

I assume you mean something like these?

Oh, that thing is there so they can hang themselves with it if they ever fail to gain the meaningless validation of strangers regarding their trendy and modern fashion statements. It's the height of technology.
