Finding Good Movies to Watch: The Ultimate Checklist
Movies can get you worked up, they can make you cry and laugh. You surf through as you watch a movie.
Movies can be declared as the national pastime of the United States. Each year, millions of people spend dollars amounting to billions to watch movies of their favourite stars. So you are exhausted after a day's work and want to watch a movie, there would be practically hundreds you could watch, but are they good enough for your time's worth. I'd say from experience that it can be quite taxing to find a good movie to watch. Enter, Internet. Why don't you let millions of people vote to tell you which movie to watch? Just go online and see what kind of ratings your movies have. Below you can find a number of sources that can help you do just that:
Newspaper Movie Reviews - This is the oldest way our fathers invented when they wanted movies to watch. Now the medium has changed. It is the e-newspapers now. The opinions expressed about a movie in the newspaper may not always be right because after all, it is a single man's point of view. I suggest you to follow movie critics who have a similar taste to yours and who specifically work in your genre of movies. You also need to stay away from critics who get swayed away with the hype around a big banner movie. You'll need to search a lot to find the perfect people for your taste.
RankAMovie.com: Changing the old paradigm of genre based movie ratings, this site gives a flip by recommending users according the their needs. You might ask for a movie recommendation if you are feeling sleepy. You may even ask for a good soccer film. You've just been ditched! There's a recommendation for you too. Find the category that suits you, and get the movies and their descriptions along with the user ratings that other users like you have awarded. Be sure to go back to the site and rate the movie as good or bad after you've seen it.
Netflix: Netflix took movie rentals to a whole new level. Once you've subscribed to their services, you can browse through their exhaustive collection of movies in a wide variety of genres, select the movies you want and add them to your viewing queue. These movies are then mailed to you regularly as and when you return them. They have different account levels depending on the number of movies you want each day ranging from 2 to unlimited. The Netflix website also sports a user rating system where you can rate movies on a scale of 1 (for poor) to 5 (for excellent). The user rating system helps in giving you recommendations by matching the likings of other users to yours. At an affordable price, this is the best rental service that can be imagined.
In a fast paced life, everyone has but very less time to relax. Therefore, you need to be careful about what you watch. A bad movie can waste a lot of your time if you are stuck with it and have no other option. If you are as picky as I am, you may start keeping a wish-list in which you can list all the good movies you come across, that you intend to watch.
