So this isn't really about the film, which you actually have about the same level of like/dislike as me towards, but how you perceive my criticism in regards to a strong philosophical view you hold of the world. The odd thing is, I hold a similar stance in regard to many things. It's about humility in the face of that which we do not understand, and not presuming that our logic is the be-all, end-all of human (and otherwise) comprehension (which is, actually, quite a concession for an INTP type). Actually, I think we are the same page here, or at least similar chapters...

I do hear you, and will keep in mind your thoughts if/when I watch the movie again.

Understood, though I really hope you don't think I'm coming from anywhere near a similar perspective based upon my opinion to this one movie. INTPs sometimes come across as arrogant, but rarely are (people who aren't into Meyers Briggs may get annoyed that I so often reference it, but it really is a concise way to explain point-of-view and behavior). If you want to get inside my head, it's not very far from your own, of course.
