No, not really... If I have some free time, I'd rather read an interesting book... Books leave us a lot of space for imagination, while in movies everything is spelled out for us... That's why I find films boring.
Quite often, to be honest... I like catching the latest movies with my friends, so we go to the cinema almost every week. I especially like action movies and sci-fi films.
I’m really into watching films because some films are very entertaining and provoking. I sometimes go to cinema with my friends and family to enjoy our leisure time in the weekends.
Well, if I were to choose between the two, I will probably go with the foreign films, especially the Hollywood films because most of them are well-acted, with lots of charismatic celebrities and always are enormous box-office hit; whereas you know, the Chinese films are almost low-budget, so they are not as attractive as their American counterparts.
I go to cinema to watch movies from time to time. Normally if I’m not busy with my work, I’ll check out the movies to see whether there are any movies that attract me; but if I have lots of things on my hands, I’ll probably focus on my work.
It’s kind of hard to say but people that I know around me tend to like watching movies in the cinema, but maybe for others, they just prefer stay at home and watch TV programmes.
As for me, I like the drama films the best because sometimes they just tell simple but warm and heartfelt stories with provoking endings, which would touch on my deepest emotions.
The first film that I watched was the The Lion King many years ago in the cinema with my parents. What I can remember now is the terrific animation and the amazing soundtrack. I particularly liked the song Can You Feel the Love Tonight that I knew it was produced by Elton John later. And I’d learned lessons from this movies. It was about living up to our responsibilities, no matter how hard it is.part I.
I do love watching films, but I am not a film maniac. So, you will not find me every Friday standing outside any of the theatres looking for movies. Or for that matter, watching old movies on television or internet 24/7. Whenever a movie of great story does come in, say for example, barfi or an inspiring film like Chak De, I do go and watch them.
I love watching both, the only thing that matters is that the story should be good. I like watching films in which you get your answers for leading a beautiful life. This does not certainly means I love motivational movies. but then even a romcom can teach you so much. So, for me the story matters, every thing else is secondary,
For most part, I like watching films at my home under by blanket. But, when there are lot of my friends going out, I do company them. However, this does not happen very often. So, one can say, if the movie is really nice and we all friends want to have some fun together, we go to cinema.
Oh! People in my country love cinema and it certainly plays a very important role in our lives. There are so many people who take advance tickets to watch films of their favourite starts. Also, there are people who would just bare standing in lines for the one ticket to watch a film. You could hear claps and then fights taking place or the teary eyes. So, yes people in my country do love cinema and feel connected to it.
i love romantic movies the most. For me, the emotion love is the most important emotion of all and I love it when two people fall in love with each other. Some of my favourite romantic movies have been, What happens in vegas, Notebook, crazy stupid love. But, apart from romantic movies, I also like watching comedy movies and sometimes the motivational movies, the ones based on true life incidents.
I really don’t like horror movies. Not primarily, because I get terrified but because I think movies are there to make you feel relaxed. For me, horror movies, give so much of emotion and excitement that it seems as if some work has been done.
The first time I watched an entire movie was Stuart Little Our school took the students who had subscribed to the newspaper to a movie hall. For us, most of the class had subscribed. So, the entire class of VI B, that was my section, went to watch the movie in a cinema hall. It was an amazing experience, not only because it was the first time I was watching a movie but because with people I enjoy my school days.
In my opinion, blindly following superstars is like living in a falsehood. Because, when a person blindly starts following the other person, they somehow forget that they are individuals and they have their own identity. Their circumstances and people around are different from their superstars, leading them to a black hole from where it gets tough getting out.
