Sometimes you just feel like a boy or a girl at night, and the question arises of how to choose a good movie to watch. My friend Sam always tells us that a group of three shouldn’t go to a DVD rental shop at the same time, because you’ll be there for hours and never really decide which movie to rent.
When we select movies, we never look for the latest releases, because you pay a premium price for movies that are new to the DVD shelf.
If you always choose movies that have been around for a long time, then guess what? You have your own selection of “new” movies to choose from after a few months from the latest release being downgraded to the newest release at a discount. Not only do you save money, but you also have a much better chance of owning a “large selection” of the latest releases.
Here is a list of things to help you decide how to choose a good movie to watch:
1. Selection by theme
Whether it’s a boys night or a girls night, you can decide the theme. Some great girl movies include Jane Austin’s “Bonnet Movies” “Pride and Prejudice,” “Emma” and so on.
For boys, you can choose the “X-Men” series, James Bond or the like.
2. Selection by Actor or Actress
Oftentimes we will sit and watch a lot of Russell Crowe or Nicole Kidman movies, you probably have some favorite actors and actresses who will help you in choosing which movies to watch.
3. Selection by Genre
There are some good movies to motivate young sports players, such as Basketball, Baseball, or Grid Iron. You may be a fan of horror films, romantic comedies, or action thrillers.
4. True Story
They say that nothing is weirder than real life, and when Hollywood screenwriters are looking for new ideas for film storylines, they often turn to taking historical events and making some great movies.
In the true story category, you still have a great selection of movies to watch about sports heroes, national heroes, and even ordinary people who have done some extraordinary things.
5. Selection by rank
When choosing a good movie to watch, you need to consider the audience, as this can help with your decision making. If you are choosing a film for a group of young children, then it is best to watch the film yourself first, so that you don’t have any surprises that could surprise or frighten the children.
6. Choosing Foreign Language Films
While there are tons of great English-language films, there are also some fantastic foreign-language films worth your attention.
Don’t be afraid to consider a foreign film just because it has subtitles. After the first few minutes of watching a foreign film and reading the subtitles, you are immediately drawn into the film and almost “forget” that you are not listening to English.
7. Word of mouth
We never really found that personal referrals of movie titles from our friends were so helpful. Everyone has different tastes, and just because one person doesn’t like a certain movie doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy it.
This is often the case with media film critics. We’ve all heard stories of films that have been slammed by critics only to become box office successes.
There are many other ways to decide how to choose a good movie to watch which includes watching movie previews or trailers, as well as watching movie review shows on TV and the internet.
The best thing about choosing a good film is that there are so many choices and so many opinions these days. As the years go by, more and more movies are released and there are still plenty of good old favorites, so sit back, relax and disappear into your own movie world, having made a selection of great movies to watch.
