    No, the point of reading and watching movies shouldn't be to be always "get our minds off all the bad things in our lives." You don't want all the art you see or read to be one continuous feel-good painkiller. This kind of attitude, if adopted, would be devastating to any attempt to understand the world. One shouldn't live in constant fear of coming across an unpleasant or controversial idea.
