I think that watching a movie of our choice helps us to unwind from our hectic days. it is a way to relax and get lost in another world for just a little while. It can sometimes change the mood you are in and make you feel better about the world around you.

i agree with sender! watching a movie help us get away from our everyday situation and allows us to relax and be entrtained. After seeing a movie, we are refreshed and we can look at the world in another view and a more wider perspective :)

hello friend. I think each people has different reason to watch movies. Some watch it for time pass, some for entertain and some for getting knowledge. i watch movies because its my favorite timepass. i am crazy for science fiction and animation movies. those movies are like health tonic for me. whenever i saw them, i feel more strong and happy. By the way now a days movies are a part of our current lifestyle and we have to see them whatever the reason is.

We are just like any other animal that needs to relax everyday. As humans we stress hard work and a busy life, but when it comes down to the truth, we should learn from the other animals. Lions and tigers spend a lot of time just laying around. They need to rest in order to get the energy to tackle their prey. So I don't think we're much different. Watching movies allows us to spend a couple hours to just heal from a busy day.

I prefer movies over most weekly shows. This is mainly because I can sit down and rest for an hour or so to watch a movie. But sometimes I am doing other things like even being here on Mylot and can forget about a TV show I like to watch,or just go out for the evening. And I have found several TV sites that will let you watch without the commericals an hour show for like 35 minutes. So I usually wind down before bed with a movie. I love romantic historical movies like 18th century pieces the best. But I like most kinds of movies except the extreme horror shows.

I think you are right on the money. We often watch movies to escape from dull life. An action advenure or sci fi can get us lost in a fantasy world and captivate us. Comedies make us laugh and forget our worries. Documentaries facisnate us with new ideas and world. SOmetimes we watch movies to think or see how other people experience life. These are more serious movies.

It is a great way to escape from the real world I think. There are times where we just need to get away from it all. Therefore, there is nothing that I enjoy more than to take a couple of hours out of my day to really just sit back and relax, while just detaching myself from all of the things of life that can be problems. Some more so on some days, than others. So really, I am just going to sit back and enjoy a movie, to take a day off from life itself. Not as much as I used to sadly. Still once or maybe twice a month, I tend to really just take a day off from everything and enjoy a movie. The type of movie can depend on the type of escape that I really want to achieve. Still it is really a great way to step away from the pressures that lives have to offer.

hi, I love watch movie too and have many reasons why I love it. when I watch movies on TV, it's because I like noises from it or to pass the time. when I watch movies from DVD is to repeat the movie i have watch, and when i watch it on the movie is more because for entertainment :)

i spent around 5 hours on watching movies every week average, mainly foreign language movies, includes Danemark norway and latin American, commercial and large-investment film is not my favor, watching movie similar to fulfill your wishes accommodate those need which is impossible in reality, when you feel sad, watch comedy then you know life is not that bad , good movie like medicine heal trauma ,use as beacon guiding you forward , watching movies let you experience what had happened to others and teaching you how to protected you in the same situation.

Most people watch movies to get entertained. Aas you mentioned, we come home tired from work and it really helps a lot to see a good movie. Aside from relaxing, many movies were created to share good stories, open up minds (like documentary movies), and so on. For me, I like watching movies to be relaxed, follow a good storyline, or make me think.

I like to watch movies to escape the world I live in. To see the world from another perspective and to enjoy something that I myself can not do. Movies are a great way to have entertainment - just like books. They take us to another time and place so we can learn more about the world and people around us. Most movies are great at taking our mind off our problems or helping us figure them out due to the characters on screen having the same problem. As for the type of movie I like, it really depends on my mood and what is going on with my life at the time.

I watch movies whenever I have leisure time to spare. That is, after finishing my work, tasks and other routinely activities. It helps me to relax and keeps my focus on my next set of activities to be in control.. =)

Today's movie proves the imaginary space of consistent experience. There is a continuum and / or cohabitation between reality and fantasy, between natural and supernatural, between earth and alien characters from the movie (similar structure viewer) and capabilities / forces them extraordinary. Increasingly, the film proposes a (i) really wants to be better than being on this side of the screen. Has the privilege that is required to be only two dimensional. Movie would seem more compelling than reality, because they can escape contingency determinations, but did not diminish their "consistency". Therefore we look at movies.

Hello Shad! I guess you are new here in mylot. Welcome! As for me, I watch movies to entertain myself specially when I feel bored. But that is not the main reason. It is my hobby to watch movies and I do that because it triggers me to write about something else. Movies also gives moral lessons to its viewers. I also use movies as a topic during my class so movies plays a vital role in my life. Happy mylotting!
