How do I decide which films to watch? Well for me making that decision it is not as easy as picking up a book and saying I will watch this film. I have to take in to consideration how much free time I have on my hands. I also have to see what kind of mood I’m in. Time is one of the most precious things that I have and to be able to give 1 1/2 to 2 hours watching a movie, it has to be worth it. Then there are many film genres to choose from, I usually like Action/Adventure and Comedy. My mood determines on what type of film I watch. I look inside myself to see what I like, and then I decide what catches my imagination.

What makes a film enjoyable? To me a good film has personality and it keeps you holding on for more. It makes you want to know what is going to happen next. The actors and actress in the film are the people who I feel I can relate to. Good films make people jump in their seat. It is a film you would look at again and again. One of my favorite films that I enjoy watching over and over again is “Air Force One”. It makes you think about what if something like this happens for real. How would our President react? Films to me are like life they began and then they End.

What makes a film unenjoyable? A film that is not enjoyable to me is one that is very predicable, one that you know what is going happen before it happens. A film with no story line is not an enjoyable film. A good example for me would be some of the Screwball Comedy like “Jack Ass” That is not an enjoyable film in my opinion. Given about 2 or 4 hours to sit back, hope the mood is right, pick out a good quality movie to watch, I do not think I have to worry about seeing any bad films; I’ll treat it like the sun. If I can not see it in the sun, it is not there.
