    Well I guess it all depends on the movies...

    Well that would depend on the movies, and what work had to be done.  If it's house work, perhaps you can get a few minutes in here and there between the movies, but one should NEVER have to spend the entire day doing housework.  If it's for a job, well then it's doing to up the individual to decide which is more important the satisfaction of watching enjoyable movies, or having your work complete.

    Working?  Who wants to work?

    If you were supposed to be at work, yet you stayed in and watched movies all day, then yes that would be a waste.  If it was your day off and you watched movies all day, that was your choice and totally not a waste.  Sometimes you need to relax and take some time for yourself.

    Yes, wasted would be the optimal word!  Whoopee!

    Yes. You're not making money, you aren't doing anything productive. However that is from my point of view. I spend 7 hours each day in high school watching movies. A home schooler, I got all of my classes and homework done by noon. Sometimes I even did a weeks worth of homework in one day because I wanted something to do, anything other than watching more movies.

    Yes...unless you are writing Movie Reviews here on HubPages!

    I think any time spent doing something that you've enjoyed is not time wasted.

    not in the least. in fact if you chose to watch tv or do anything relaxing over making money you deserve a pat on the back. too many people these days spend too much time on their quest for money and it's sad.

    No! Like John Lennon said, Time you enjoy wasting was not wasted. If you're having fun, and would rather do something for a day instead of working, your time isn't wasted.

    definitely not. Movies are unique and widen your horizon. Basically I would sit in my room and watch movies all day but unfortunately I have to go to work. Would prefer the movies though because there I can learn something, which I can´t at work.
