What type of films do you enjoy watching?

GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands ModeratorPosts: 4,507 mod
If you like watching films, what type of films do you like watching the most? For me, I like comedy films, and this is because I love to laugh, and I like films that can help me with this. I also like romance films, but I need to know that the film is going to have a happy ending before I watch it.

How about you? What is your favourite type of film, and why?

    @GemmaRowlands I am dying to watch science fiction movies and I always inspired by those movies indeed.They motivate me to do something new and experimental.
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 4,507 mod
    I know what you mean about being inspired @Rajesekharreddy because in a way it makes me feel the same. Though I'm not sure that I am clever enough to be able to come up with any ideas that could actually change the world. But it certainly helps to inspire me to give it a go at least!

    I like thriller and mystery movies. Sometimes, I like to watch classic drama. Comedy is the recent addition to my watch list.

    Hi @GemmaRowlands , I like action and mystery movies, because it full of entertainment and have some lessons like , how to defend yourself , and the fast reaction..
  • RafiaremaRafiarema Posts: 369 ✭✭✭
    I like watching good movies in all genres, but I enjoy less in drama movies without action and full crying scenes. My favorite are movies with fantasy genre, movies with swords and horses or dragons and maybe some magic.
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 4,507 mod
    Action and mystery movies are very entertaining aren't they @amrtarekhassan I agree with you. I like movies where there is action from beginning to end, and I do find it very entertaining indeed.

    I don't like violence or fantasy films much, but otherwise I can watch just about anything.
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 4,507 mod
    What is it that you like about scary movies @nisreen.mustafa ? I always get too scared and have to switch them off, so I don't find myself enjoying them all that much. I do wish that I could appreciate that kind of thing a little bit more, though.
  • amrtarekhassanamrtarekhassan Posts: 41 ✭✭
    yes @GemmaRowlands you are right .. so i love it . :smile:

    Action, mystery and Scientific.
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 4,507 mod
    What kind of scientific films do you like to watch @mdsoliman? I admit that I do like films in that genre on occasion, but they do have to be about something that I really enjoy reading about. I like things about genetics and evolution the best, at the moment.

    Found it @Yellow. Thanks for mentioning Whisky. If I get into too much troubles with the Spanish, I'll get back to you. If you don't mind. :)
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 4,507 mod
    No I have never watched that film @Yellow what it is about? I am always looking for new recommendations, so I would be very interested to hear more about it to see if it is something that I would enjoy.
  • YellowYellow Posts: 7
    @Zom I don´t... mind please tell me what do you think of the movie when you watch it, I want to know.
  • YellowYellow Posts: 7
    @GemmaRowlands "Advantegeous" is a science fiction movie, is placed, in a near future. Is about a mom and a dauther that tries to live happy in a world that have a lot of problems... Is very interesting movie, one of the topics is about beauty and the apparence. is in english...
  • ZomZom Posts: 2,370 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Yellow I've watched the trailer, it looks the kind of stuff I like. Once I've watched it completely maybe I could set up a private conversation on the forum where I could ask you about some Spanish vocab and expressions and talk about the film?

    My Spanish needs a boost and this could be a good way for me to improve. What do you think? Would you be interested?
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 4,507 mod
    Thanks for the information @Yellow that sounds like the type of film that I would enjoy watching, so perhaps I will try it and see whether I like it or not. I am definitely looking to broaden my horizons when it comes to watching films, so this would be a great thing for me to do, I think.
  • ZomZom Posts: 2,370 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I've just watched Whisky @Yellow. I think Jacob is a great bloke. :D

    I personally like to watch action, thriller movies. e.g. TAKEN
    because they are made with very much sense..every thread linked to each other.
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 4,507 mod
    I have seen the film Taken and I enjoyed it very much @1ashish :) Have you seen the sequels to that film?
  • amino32amino32 Posts: 18 ✭✭
    I like Romance, action, and comedy... unlike you @GemmaRowlands i must know the movie has a sed ending to watch it.
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 4,507 mod
    I don't really like sad endings @amino32 because I like things to cheer me up. Sad endings leave me feeling a little bit down.
  • amino32amino32 Posts: 18 ✭✭
    it is not that i don't like happy endings, @GemmaRowlands but i prefer sad endings cause they are more real..
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 4,507 mod
    Yes I know what you mean @amino32 I suppose more things in real life have sad endings than the very happy ones that you see sometimes in films.
  • amino32amino32 Posts: 18 ✭✭
    very true @GemmaRowlands
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 25,283 mod
    I haven't watched so many full length feature movies lately as they take longer. Most films seem to last a couple of hours or more nowadays. I tend to prefer watching episodes from TV series that last an hour or less.
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 4,507 mod
    Yes movies do take a long time. TV shows are great to watch because you only to put aside a small amount of time to watch them.
