The White Ribbon is my favourite film ever. The story is set in Germany, 1912. It's about a small village where a considerable part of the people are just children. Suddenly, lots of tragedies start to happen. Soon, we can realise that these tragedies aren't just accidents, the people involved in them are being punished. I'am going to stop here cause i don't want to give spoilers.

My favourite film is "Schindler's list". it is a drama based on a true story.
Directed by Steven Spielbelg and starring Liam Neeson. The story is set during the Second World War in Krakow. Oscar Schindler was businessman and took advantage of the running war, but when he saw the terrible things that took place in the concentration camps he decided to save as many Jews as possible.
That is a moving and engaging film, I really liked the soundtrack and the realism of the film. I recommend everyone to watch it.

I have recently seen several movies and series: suicide squad 2, Cruella, Loki, Wanda vision, us, all the horror street movies, the woman in the window, etc. I think the movie that I liked the most was us, because I really like horror and suspense movies and the us movie is very entertaining even though at first it didn't look so interesting then it wraps you around so you want to know what happens and The ending is very impressive and it leaves you with some doubts, but it is still very interesting.

At the moment my favorite tv series is "The hollow", which is about Three boys, Adam, Mira and Kai. They wake up in a room and don't remember anything of their life. At first they think that they are dead. But they discover that in order to return home they do difficult challenges with the help of their superpower like fire domination or speaking with animals. Everyone has one power, but they aren't the only squad in that world and only one can return home.
One mixes adventure, action and freindish in a magic word.

Since the beginning of the quarantine, I have seen so many movies, for example, Raya and the last dragon, Soul, Cruella, etc.
But, recently, my favorite movie is Luca, made by Pixar. It's a cartoon and tells the story of a fish called Luca, who has the curiosity to know the surface; On the other hand, his mother doesn't want to see her son hanging out with human beings, so she became overprotective.
One day Luca met another fish, but he discovers that the fish is not a normal one because when he is outside of the water, he turns into a human boy, who is called Alberto.
Alberto forced Luca to come out of the sea, and suddenly he became a human too. Even though Luca is scared, he accepts to experience some adventures with his new friend, then they go to the human village and meet a brave girl. I'm going to stop here because I don't want to give you spoilers about the movie.
I need to confess that I wasn't expecting a big thing, but it surprised me a lot. In addition, I learned so many important things about life with it, such as get out of my comfort zone to experience real life, and this is a personal issue for me that I'm always struggling with, so when I saw this in the movie, I felt really well.
I hope you all, who had the curiosity to watch, like it and that the movie makes you feel special like I felt.

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.

The last movie I saw is "the kissing booth". I thought it´s a good movie to hang out and saw with your mom, it has a touch of comedy and romance. It tells the story of teenage first love and is full of , friendship and good vibes that make it a nice film.

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.
