re: Explanation 1 You're on Netflix deciding which movie to watch. You narrow it down to 3 options. You go through each movie and read the summary. Ult...
 

The first explanation sounds a lot more like filter. You are more passing a function there that is checking if something is true or not. (Like is it interesting) and returning the one that passed.

 

Ah that's true and good catch. I was thinking more along the lines of determining how long a movie is based on the current time and how long it would keep you up. Ignore explanation 1!! =)

 

But think about this: you could implement filter using reduce.
