Everybody watching films. Some people are inclined to believe that films are a source of entertainment for people of all age groups and professions whereas others claim that watching a movie is not the best way to spend your free time.
In my opinion, watching movies can be a very useful activity. Firstly, films introduce us to cultures, historical events and stories with which we are unfamiliar. Secondly, movies stir our emotions and memories. What is more, movies can be used in classrooms to enhance learning. For example, watching the original version of a foreign movie is an effective way of improving one's language skills.
On the contrary, some people say that watching movies can interfere with basic physical'activity.
People who spend too many hours in front of a television hiave little time for exercise and outdoor activities. In addition, watching a movie is a one-sided activity. People look at the screen and do not look at each other during the film. They adventures of the main characters and do not pay attention to what their friends or family members do or say.
Nevertheless, I believe that films can stimulate conversations. Movies can also bring families together. Family movie night is a fun activity that encourages parents and children to spend more time together and to discuss different things.
To sum up, watching movies is many people's favourite pastime these days, and it will remain popular for years to come. Of course, not all films are worth seeing, and the amount of time you spend in front of a screen should be limited. Anyway, I believe that a really good film has the power to entertain, educate and unite people.
