I'm the kinda person who loves to watch all the behind the scenes stuff...make up, models (real and computer made), practical effects, compositing, the music. The many layers of effects required to make that one scene look seamless.

For me it makes the appreciation of a film even greater. In Transformers.... over a million polygons to build just Optimus Prime!!! 600,000 animating parts. Makes me more in awe when I know it took an army of passionate people to make it happen... and I want to be a part of the magic.
All artists are obssesive compulsive... its what keeps us going!
The science inspires the dream, the dream creates the art...the art fuels the dream and continues to inspire the science!
