Five Things that I Love About Movies 4


Movies have been a part of my life a long long time. I did mention on my about page that my first cinematic experience happened when I was three. Kids are not supposed to remember things that happened when they were three. I did, in crystal clear view. So, I must had been enthralled so much by the motion picture, that I was able to keep it in my memory vault, intact.

To honor that, these are Five Things that made me love movies:


Movies contained so many information, references and codes, it’s a language of its own. It helps you socialize, communicate, even impress the girl you liked.

If I came up to one of my female friends, looked at her face intensely, and said, “You look like Joker,” what do you think will happen? There’s a couple of possibilities that could occur, and one of them includes her running to the nearest toilet to fix her make up. Today’s Joker is Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight. If I looked at someone’s face and said they look like Joker, it means their make up is terrible.

Movies help you to decipher subtle information, comment safely, make you look cool, and react in a speed of light. So the next time your Dad came up to you and said with a scary tone, “I am your father.” In a fraction of second, your reply will forever be, “NOOOOOOOOOOOO!” And when you’re about to lose your hot girlfriend, just use, “You complete me.” Works like a charm.


From time to time, Hollywood disappoints you, but there’s always something to offer. It may not be new, it may not be good, but if you decided to go out and check something out on the theater, there’s always something to watch.


If you’re someone with lack of imagination, movies help you cope with your fantasy deficiency. If you want to know how it feels like living in the 50s, go see a classic movie. If you want to know how space travel feels, go see 2001: A Space Odyssey. If you want to know how it feels like to date Megan Fox, go see Transformers. If you want to know how to be a great leader, watch Caligula. No, I mean go watch 300 or The Lord of The Rings. If you feel the urge of chopping your enemy to pieces, go see Hostel. It contained some seriously disturbed stuffs that will make you made up your mind.


If you want to make high quality soap, call Tyler Durden. Movies can teach you a lot of things. It can give you valuable lesson about stalking your Facebook friend. It can give you tips about forgetting your ex. It can tell you the inconvenient facts about how your food is served. If you came across a movie that is so bad, you’ll learn a lesson about not making movies out of silly scripts.


Sure, I can do better things and spend less money in two hours. But going to a movie and experiencing the fun, the thrills, and the sadness in a movie is enough reason to spend a couple of dollars on tickets or rents. Movies can make you relax and forget your problems for a while. I’m sure it’s cheaper than going to a shrink.

There are so much reasons I could tell you, but a single post is all I have. So, that’s my personal Five Things. How about you? What do you love about movies?

    I can relate to all five things you mention, although i wasn’t that early of age when i watched my first movie. I was around 6 when i saw a neighbor watching a rented movie that showed 2 people pressing lips on each other. Yuck!

    I spent most of my childhood years watching Jet Lee (Dad’s a fan) and horror movies (sis’ a fan). It was not until I was nine or ten, I saw kissing and nude scene. I was like, “Hey, nude girls. Awesome!” Okay, that sounds so wrong…

    i love watching movie, all genres except local horror, usually i never watch alone, but lately i like to watch alone, its more fun

    Naw, I’m a movie enthusiast. B-) *dikemplang*

    I don’t remember the last time I’ve watched local movie, actually. That’s a bit sad, but nothing they offered really interest me. It has nothing to do with me being a non-nationalist or sth. :P I was a huge fan of horrors, then I stopped a couple years ago. I guess my nerves had reached the certain limit when I need to stop staring at scary stuffs. =))
