My favorite film
As in music and films I’m a melomaniac. I watch different genres of movies. From scary horror film to romantic comedies. When I was asked about my favorite film, I realized that I had never thought about it. I didn't stop at one film.
First movie it is drama. "Me before you". This story touched me to my heart.
During watching this film I was feeling joy, happiness, confusion, sadness and disappointment. This story about Will Traynor who became quadriplegic. He was disappointed in his life. And his mother hired a new nurse for him. It was Louise Clark who tried to show him the joy of his life. By the end of the film she had fallen in love with Will and their feelings were mutual. I love the actress Emilia Clarke and this role (Louise) is no exception. Spoiler! The ending of the story is very tragic.
The second film, it's "It". This is a horror movie, based on the novel by Stephen King. It is a story about seven kid were friends of children who fought against evil in the form of a clown with red balloons, its name is Рennywise. Which killed the brother of one of the friends, and altogether many children died because of it. This film is about courage, determination, and overcoming fear. For me, it's not very scary, but it's insanely interesting. I recommend watching not only the movie but also reading the book!

My favorite movie is more modern, although it was released on TV screens a long time ago - it's "One at Home". "One at Home" is a fun family comedy. We love watching it with our parents. Throughout the film, we sincerely laugh at the fun adventures of the main character Kevin. I felt very sorry for him when he was left alone at home, he thought that everyone had abandoned him. He was very angry and offended until he realized that his dearest house wanted to rob. Then Kevin gathered his strength and proudly defended his home. How cleverly he came up with all those intricate traps into which the robbers fell. I did not feel sorry for them at all, they deserved to be treated badly.
The film makes you think about the true values ​​of the family and how mothers feel about their children. At the very end of the film, the whole family was together, and Christmas was spent with presents and in the family circle.

My favorite movie is "Avatar". After the world "Titanic" died down on the screens, James Cameron literally went to the bottom, carried away by diving into the depths of the ocean. For twelve long years, he did not shoot anything for Hollywood, only releasing several documentaries about his underwater expeditions. They waited long and hard for the fantastic action movie "Avatar", and finally, in 2009, the world saw this large-scale project. Now we invite you to watch the picture "Avatar" online and become one of the multi-million army of fans of this fascinating story.The plot of the film is simple, but at the same time the project amazes with its technical side, which turned the world of cinema upside down, marking the era of a new digital boom. The story tells about Jake Sully, who was deprived of the opportunity to walk as a retired Marine. Tragically, his twin brother, who was supposed to be part of an alien project, is killed in a street fight. Instead, Jake is given the opportunity to become the operator of the so-called "avatar", an artificially grown hybrid of a human and an alien Na'vi creature. Wanting to part with his inferiority, the former soldier with hope in his heart goes to the distant planet Pandora.

My favourite film of all time is Star Wars. Star Wars: A New Hope, to be precise.

I watched this film when I was 11, which was 5 years ago. Whenever I go back and rewatch this film, it brings back a certain feel of nostalgia and peace. It reminds me when I was depressed and stressed. I can watch it again and again.

I'm following the supernatural horror serial film - Annabelle that has three-part. The film was inspired by a story of a haunted doll named Annabelle. It is taken a series of paranormal activities occur around the main characters. There were lots of blood, scary images, plus some jump-shock moments, shooting, fighting, and dead bodies. I was impressed by all scenes and sounds in the film. I have been horrified until now.

I love many movies, and I liked Pixar and Disney's 'Onward'. It was released recently, and I loved the graphics, stories, and the topics. It's about the elf brother who got the opportunity to make their dead father alive. But accidently they brought only their dad's legs, so they go journey to find the other phinix gem to bring their father's whole body too. And... I cannot write all the plot here, 'cause it is spoiler. However, 'Onward' was a great film.

The last movie,that I saw, it was "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire".
I love this movie and its series but this film is my favourite among others.
I saw backstage movie and some special effects are really amazing!
Besides I love Hermione in Yule Ball scene she is too funny but also sad.

I suggest Harry Potter series, films and book, for teens' new generation because they deserve much respect.

My favourite film is "XOXO: Carpe Diem". I've seen for the first time two years ago. It's about a young DJ call Ethan, play by Graham Phillips, who have, at the last time, the chance to participate at one of the most important music festival in US. But all won't happen like it should. I won't tell you anymore about it but, if you like electronic or techno music, festival... I really recommend you this movie. That's not the best film I've seen but it made me feel many emotions. : )

My favorite movie is "Moonlight Kingdom". I love its vintage atmosphere and pleasant warm colors. It tells a story of two children, who run away from their families into the forest to spend time together. It is very interesting and quite funny to watch. There is also awesome music!

Yes, I have seen. Especially I like political movies. One of them's name "Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion". This film tells us about the government's bureaucracy in 1970s. Recently It hasn't changed, İ think.
