We all know movies are basically the result of imagination of people, there are some movies with real life stories though. What do you think movies should be very close to rel life, or should make for fantasy only?

I think there is room for all of them, Drama, Action, Science Fiction, Animation, Romantic, having all types of movies is just great. It gives everyone a great choice of film to watch. Real life stories are good as they show how people deal with their life problems and can give others hope that things can work out well… Comedy's can really cheer you up. Fantasy type of movies will take you into another world and make you forget all your problems for a while. But si-fi are my favourite.

hello friend, i think it should be both way, because the real life is personal experice we can feel though the movie, and fantasy or imagination movie bring us to a place where we cant go in real life. so both are good movies either way.

You are right, sometime we can accomplish something virtualy through a movie what can't do in real life

I think there is room for both. Sometimes it is nice to escaoe into a fantasy world, such as "Harry Potter" or "The Lord of the Ruimgs", where you can lose yourself in a complete different world. Other times, I think a true ife story is great. Depends on my mood.

I think that there is room for all kinds of movies in the world. Real life stories can be very touching and sweet, or heartbreaking, depending on the story. But I personally love the most fantastical movies out there. Especially stories about magic, like Harry Potter. So if you were asking me to decide for myself what type of movies i would like if there could only be either real-life stories or fantasy stories out there, I would choose the latter. But I really don't see a problem with having both types of movies in the world! ^_^

I find that if a movie is too close to a real life situation and it's violent I will not go and see it. I get enough reality in the news every day. I prefer more fantasy or sci-fi that is too far out to be real or a bit of humour.

I think fantasy and real life are just that .. fantasy can be anything about any subject and done in any way that gets a pleasing result for the storyline .. True life stories however should done as accurately as time and money allows ..

I think that movies should be the result of real life, but movies that basically are from stories should be with imagination and fantasy.

Personally i enjoy all kinds of movies but movies made about true people are not always honest in representing the persons and/or the real events, with celebrities it can often be misguiding and 'fabricated' in many times.. it's very hard to represent true stories accurately because directors, writers and even actors want to add to it and change to their advantage or what they see better..

I think it depends a lot on the intent of the movie. Obviously a documentary should be as real as possible whereas science fiction wouldn't be. But where you draw the line I don't know. I would say if it should be believable then it should be close to real life.

Movies are basically for entertainment. Bot being a form of media it is also a tool for communication. Along with fantasy for unwinding on a lesiurely day there ought to be some real life story which could inspire or bring forward some realities to the masses.

I like movies based on a true story. They are so often very inspiring. Most of them bring me to tears. There is always a hardship to overcome. Some end in miracles. Others do not. These are the saddest of all.

I think it should have alittle bit of both. Alittle fantasy makes it more fun to watch.

Well, we already have documentaries and biographies offician and unofficial. Then we have romance which is always fantasy and then everything up to horror. You already have the option of picking what you wish to view. Works already and our purchasing dollars dictate what is made. The variety is fine by me.

I believe movie should just be a fantasy, as we live in real life it's not necessary to see that a movie. I go to see a movie to get entertained so for that a fantasy story is only needed ..
