Sample Answer 1
Some of my friends are movie-buff and they like to watch certain movies on the large screen. When their parents do not accompany them, I am forced to be their partner and waste a few hours in the dark room. One such movie I remember that almost made me promise never to watch movies is ‘The Curse of the Weeping Woman’ or ‘The Curse of La Llorona’ in 2019.
Although I don’t particularly appreciate visiting the theatres except for movies of the Marvel franchise, very few DC movies in 3D and some selected films, I had to watch this movie with one of my close friends who promised me to treat me later. I agree that there are numerous movies in the horror genre that are really awe-inspiring. However, nowadays, the gimmicks used in this genre have become very predictable and fail to create dread in the viewers. The story was of a beautiful woman who killed her children in rage after she found that her husband was cheating. After the murder, she felt so guilty that she killed herself and began haunting the whole city and killing children she thought were hers. Unfortunately, the common tactics made the movie very monotonous.
Personally, I enjoyed the funny comments from the audience more than the movie. The atmosphere in the theatre was light and comic, rather than being silent and frightening. Even my friend, who is not comfortable with the genre, laughed at certain scenes. Although the movie had a few good moments, the familiar theme and ending spoilt the whole movie experience for most people.
- Climax: the most intense, exciting, or important point of something; the culmination
Eg: The climax of the movie was very interesting.
- Gripping: firmly holding the attention or interest; exciting
Eg: This horror movie had a gripping plot.
- Cinematography: the art of photography and camerawork in film-making
Eg: His cinematography is very good.
- Humiliated: to reduce (someone) to a lower position in one’s own eyes or others’ eyes
Eg: He was humiliated at his friend’s birthday party.
Sample Answer 2
Last week I watched a very low-rated movie on Netflix. The movie was TvsF, and I was willing to watch it as a night show. Unfortunately, the movie’s content and theme were not up to the mark for the audience to enjoy.
When I watch a movie, I focus on the plot, storyline, and cinematography. The plot of the movie was not so embarrassing. A movie needs to be inspiring and should reflect our society and ordinary or rather regular life. Some movies are out of imagination and remain out of bound that gives happiness only by watching. But this movie did not have any creativity and had only slang with comedy between two couples. There were lots of actions from the start of the movie to the end. The movie’s climax was not up to mark to give a good review in IMDb and the movie comment box. Neither could I learn anything from this movie nor relate anything to the plot of this movie. I was feeling very fatigued to continue with the movie’s second half. The story was not gripping and had only plain dialogues and actions, which made it tedious.
But I thought that I should also watch bad movies. I think people must watch a movie not only for enjoyment but also to learn to distinguish between good and bad ones.
