Watching movies is one of my favorite things to do. Instead of working to music, I like to work to movies I've seen thousands of times.

I really love horror movies, especially ones from Asia as they tend to have less of this sensitive content than American films do. I love the Ju-On (Japanese) franchise, One Last Call (Japanese), Monster (2014, Korean), Dark Water (Japanese), Tag Riaru Onigokko (Japanese, surreal horror), The Silenced (Korean with some Japanese), The Red Shoes (Korean), Killer Toon (Korean).
For "chick flicks" I love Uptown Girls (American), Legally Blonde 1-2 (American; please disregard 3), The Devil Wears Prada (American), Bride Wars (American), Baby Mama (American), Ramen Girl (American; it's an English and Japanese language movie), Memoirs of a Geisha (American about Japan with some Japanese language; though this film is controversial- please regard it as fiction, especially regarding the inaccurate mizuage ritual, and read up about Mineko Iwasaki for more on this), and No Reservations (French or American version).
And it's no secret I love anime. For anime films, definitely all and every Ghibli studio movie and Wolf Children: Ame and Yuki.
My favorite family movie is probably Mrs. Doubtfire (American).
I also really like some television series, such as Heaven's Garden (Korean), Black (Korean; the series is SO GOOD except the ending -cries- ), When I See You Again (Taiwanese), Keeping Up Appearances (British), and Call The Midwife (British).
But I can like basically any genre if it's a well made movie, you know?
Hey, I'll add all those to my list! Thanks for all the recommendations, I will tell you what I think once I get around to watching them if you don't mind?
The Ghlibi studio movies are awesome <3 They're so cozy and just really charming, and the art style is adorable too!
Gooosh, I FEEL YOU WITH 'Black'! I was watching it, LOVED it, and then...WTF...The ending was just crap XD I really can't understand what the producers were thinking or trying to do?
But now I have a bunch to check out, ty!
I want to learn how to paint like the Ghibli background artists. I love how realistic painted backgrounds really make a production sing, and according to Scott McCloud's "Understanding Comics," the use of realistic backgrounds juxtaposed with simplified characters allows a viewer to project themselves onto that character more, thus empathy increases and the viewer uses the character as an avatar to experience the story rather than simply view it. PSYCHOLOGY. -throws glitter-
I AM SO HAPPY THAT YOU HAVE SEEN "BLACK." I HAVE NOT MET ANYONE ELSE WHO HAS. Apparently that director is notorious for this- he makes great content, but the endings are always lacking. I've been long since tempted to animate my own ending to the series. IT's good to know someone else might be potentially interested in seeing that! ( ; u ; )
Yes, the style Ghlibi uses is so nice >w<
That'rs really interesting...I might need to check that out hmm
YES, me too! Most people have not even heard of it XD
Oh, that's crazy XD Now I don't know if I should check out the other stuff that director made or not XD
Yeah, I totally recommend that book!
IKR. Like... I LOVE Black, except the ending. I'm not sure if my heart can take another ending like that, but my mind also craves to know the other stories. XD
Oh... okay, well anyway I hope I find Disney Nutcracker movie someday. Same with The Little Mermaid. My VHS player still works, but it's only a couple years old. We got it because we have a lot of VHS tapes that we wanted to watch. Once my mother told me "I can't understand what they're saying. Put subtitles on." And I told her "I can't, it's a VHS tape!" Lol
