I’m a film lover. I looooooove movies and the whole experience involved on it. Dan and I watch movies almost everyday. Not just movies, sometimes it’s compilations of TED Talks, or even a few episodes of our favorite series. Anyway, the fact is instead of watching any sort of crap on TV, we have our own picks.
I enjoy almost all kind of movies, except the horror movies with kids. I don’t see the point of transforming children in something to scare people. I actually hate it. You won’t see me mad, until you put this sort of picture in front of me. Don’t you dare!
But overall, my favourites are either action and superheros films. Expendables 2 was amazing, I loved it! All the legendary guys united in a single shot? Fabulous! And as a big fan of Jean Claude Van Damme I was just a bit disappointed with the fact he was the bad guy. But anyway, I love those films.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I highly recommend you NOT to watch trailers. I mean, of course they show all the good stuff, they need to promote it and they do it really well, because most of trailers make us keen to watch the movies in fact. My point is, the surprises of movies are always stronger once you have no idea about it. And you just realize it when you got to watch the movie before the trailer. “Why do I want to watch the trailer then?” You probably don’t, but at least, you had the whole experience discovered by yourself.
As an example, I was just thinking of sharing a trailer of an amazing documentary I saw this week, and I regret immediately, because it shows the most touching parts. Ruing the surprise! Not worth watching trailers, totally worth watching it straight away. Trust me!
Another good example, I was told by many people that “Marley & Me” was the saddest movie ever. I heard this so much, that when I was watching it, I was expecting sadness all movie long. And I was quite surprised with the whole happiness involved in the film that I ask Dan: “Where is the sad parts? I wanna cry”! Until, you know, the very end. If I had watched the trailer first, I would probably enjoyed less some of its parts.
I usually rely on friends recommendations and big talks on social media. But if you want something more, as I always do, you can check out moveis at Jinni, where you quickly set up an account and start rating movies you’ve already seen. Then, it starts recommending films you might enjoy. Also, it first tells you a profile of the movie, which you can have some comprehension of what to expect of the movie instead of reading its summary and catching the best parts before watching it. I love Jinni!
So, here it is a pile of what I saw lately: (Click on the photos to see the IMDb link)
Enjoy and let me know if you agree or disagree with me and also recommendations are always welcome
