What Do You Expect From A Movie?

    When you go to the theatre or rent or buy a DVD, what do you expect from the movie? Good feeling? To be scared out of your mind? To be aroused? To get a sense of justice? What?

      Hmm depending on mood...always...smile  Sometimes a great brainless action movie will do--or something really intense---horror, thriller...then there are the times for a riveting/drama...hopefully with some intellect..message or moral to the story...

      I say--as long as the movie is well produced and has some wit or intelligence--I'm there.

      I want to be entertained just enough to feel as though I've gotten my money and time's worth out of the movie. Sheesh, I can always sit at home and be entertained by the fanatics in the religious forums for free! smile

      If its a Thriller/Drama - I'd like to be totally immersed in it and hope it has unexpected twists. (like Prison Break)

      Funny films - I expect to be laughing hysterically with my friends.

      Romantic films - Not the Titanic Ending - please. smile

      Most movies that I watch, I can already figure out what is going to happen most of the time. So it makes the movies boring. I like movies that can't be assumed as to what the ending will be.

        So true, a sucker punch ending always does the trick for me. M.Night Shymalan movies do that for me.

          I will agree that most of his endings can't be assumed or figured out before the end. However, I don't like most of his movies. lol I did like the 6th sense. That may be the only one of his I liked. lol

    I'm probably the only person who's enjoyed all those "---- Movie" movies

    I go to be entertained.  And if I get something more out of a movie, that's an added bonus.

    It depends on the movie and the genre.  Every genre plays to certain audience expectations.  The best moveis are the ones that deliver more than you bargained for.

    For me to call a movie good, it has to deliver.  It has to place me inside the mindset of the characters so that I can live vicariously through them.  It has to be so different from my own reality that I want to be part of it's reality.

    If it's horror, I have to feel the horror and the sense of danger.  Action, I have to feel the sense of urgency. Drama, I have to feel empethetic to the antagonist as well as the protaganist.

    Action! But it needs to be intertwined with a good plot...not just for the sake of Action!

    I expect nothing more than to be entertained.  It can be a simple movie, or a complex movie.  I tend to prefer to have my mind boggled, but I don't insist on it.

    I expect to see talented actors and actresses who do not sound like they are reading there scripts. I enjoy seeing them in character and giving there all. smile If I am watching a romance expect to feel, live it and breathe it. smile
