Watching movies has been my hobby since I was a child. I can get lost in a good story.
While I don't use movies as an escape from my life, somehow the music, the characters, the scenes seem to have a great effect on me; I feel like I am being transported to a magical place full of fantasy and mystique. In other words, I let the movies carry me away...pure bliss!
Also, watching classic old movies it's a great opportunity to have a historic trip through time, or see life and lifestyles from a different perspective, which I do cherish a lot.
Apart from entertainment, movies can be pretty inspiring as well. Some films I just watch to take a break from the world around me, which is always nice. Because for a certain amount of time I can concentrate on someplace else, faraway lands and peoples, and be far away from where I am at.
There's nothing I enjoy more than sitting on the sofa and watching a good movie, especially on Saturday nights...snacking away. Totally normal.
Here are some of my favourite films, in no particular order:
The Silence of the Lambs
Back to the Future
Gone with the Wind
The Matrix (I like The Matrix because of its intriguing concept-reality, illusion and philosophy. The film is considered to be far-ahead of its time as well.)
The Lives of Others. Such a great movie! I would highly recommend it. (Okay, I cheated! There are far too many to choose from.)
What about you?
Hope you have a wonderful, relaxing (long) weekend! xx
P.S. Grab a nice big bowl of hot buttery popcorn and enjoy your movie!
