Reasons Why Kris Love Watching Films

Sort by: Showing 21 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
People who added this item 1724 Average listal rating (1143 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8

Get Away
Sometimes it's good to take a break from reality and just make the time pass by. Films are (for me) one of the best things to make the clock ticking.


Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 3460 Average listal rating (2280 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.5

Doesn't Judge
People can be cruel. The first mistake, is probably to judge a book by it's cover (judging people before they have even tried to talk to them). Films doesn't judge you. It doesn't care who you are or who watch it, just as long you watch the damn film.


Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 3793 Average listal rating (2613 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8
The Avengers (2012)

Pleasure - Simple fun
It doesn't matter if it's watching superheroes save the world yet again, watch big explosions nor watch people hurt themselves, it's simple fun to watch and gives me pleasure.


Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 1982 Average listal rating (1309 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 7
Happy Gilmore (1996)

Make me laugh, dammit!
Sometimes laughter can make bad memories disappear or it can mainly be there because you wanna good laugh.


Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 7669 Average listal rating (5455 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8.3
Toy Story (1995)

Animation
Animation has the opportunity to make everything possible. Toy's that can talk? No problem. A robot with feelings? No worries! Anything is possible (well, almost at least)..


Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 75 Average listal rating (50 ratings) 5.1 IMDB Rating 3.4

Last forever? Hell NO!
A film (the general meaning of the word) is not everlasting like some TV-Shows (Like for instance - The Bold and the beautiful).


Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 7269 Average listal rating (5275 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 8.2
Batman Begins (2005)

Money well spent
The time you put in to work for something called money, it's a preferable to pay for something that you yourself thinks is really good or something you could get something out of.


Kristian's rating:

Game ON
You can use films for a lot of things than just sit in a chair/sofa and watch a movie. For instance, you can dare your friends to do a drinking game.

If you want any ideas for some films to do drinking games;

Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 2706 Average listal rating (1810 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.5
Collateral (2004)

Cool Characters
Sometimes when you see a film, you get introduced to a character who are so cool that you just want to watch the movie all-over again. Sometimes you can relate to the character, and most of the times you want to be (almost) like him/her.


Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 4070 Average listal rating (2713 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 8.1

Excitement
Some films are so intense (and real too) that you get trouble cathing your breath afterwards. Sometimes these films are the best.


Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 4308 Average listal rating (2890 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 8.2

Twists
We all have our Achilles heel when it comes to movies. Some have a weakness for the genre comedy, other have an weakness for films with good twists. That's simply just because of subjective taste.


Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 465 Average listal rating (302 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.5

Martial Arts
My second weakness must be martial arts-films. I can watch all of Jackie Chan nor Jet Li films without going tired of the fightscenes, even thought they may seem like the fighting scenes are just the same over and over again for some people.


Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 2151 Average listal rating (1348 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.1
Hard Candy (2006)

Allowed to eat candy and junk food
How could I leave out this important upside for watching films? This actually speaks for itself, I think..!?


People who added this item 2639 Average listal rating (1591 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7

Get Surprised
"Momma always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get" (Forrest Gump). In some way films are like this too. Sometimes you go to a film and get blown away because it was just so good nor you go out from the cinema very disappointed. No matter, you can get surprised by a movie you not normally would have seen.


Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 2162 Average listal rating (1312 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 8.2
Chinatown (1974)

Favorite Actors/Actresses
Watching your favorite actor/actress in an brilliant performance is maybe one of the best thing with a film. Why? Don't know, but then again why bother asking?


Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 1270 Average listal rating (822 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.8

True Events
In some way you could say that many filmmakers put Based on a true story/events just to get people watching the film. With that said, watching a film that actually is based on a true story is time well spent!


Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 2873 Average listal rating (1774 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.8

The Adventure
It doesn't matter if the story is a trip to Mordor, as long as you make an adventure out of the whole thing ;)


Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 3428 Average listal rating (2369 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.6
Kick-Ass (2010)

Good music
Sometimes the music is there for a reason, sometimes it's not and sometimes it can ruin the film. BUT sometimes it makes the film good, cool and/or awesome!


Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 772 Average listal rating (465 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 7.8

Foreign Films
At first it could be cool to watch films from your own country, because you can understand the language that is spoken. Then again it's good to learn about other culture or see what they can produce.


Kristian's rating:
People who added this item 87 Average listal rating (45 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.3
Friend (2001)

Friends
When it comes to film, you can also watch one for the social matter. You can watch a movie with your friends, relatives and/or family.


People who added this item 569 Average listal rating (365 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.4
Marathon Man (1976)

Movie Marathon
Sometimes you get in that mood (at least I do) when you just want to sit the whole day and watch films. Sometimes friends have the same mood. Other times you want to just sit for yourself.



Many people have made these kind of lists before, but I felt that I had to make one myself since I really do love watching films.
