My favorite movies are action movies that have a good story line. I enjoy science fiction, fantasy, and modern action movies. In my opinion, the most important part of a movie is a character with a strong and fascinating personality. In order to enjoy a movie, I need someone to root for. This could be the lead character, a supporting character, or even the "bad guy". I like movies with a fast moving plot, and I don't like movies that end too quickly. I tend to avoid "chick flicks" and romantic comedies. I don't like stories that focus too much on romance (boring) without any exciting plot line. And while I acknowledge that comedies are funny, if I want to watch a movie I never pick a comedy. I feel like the characters in these movies rarely have the type of personality that I like to see in a movie.
One movie that I believe everyone should watch at least once is Braveheart, starring and directed by Mel Gibson. I have watched this movie too many times to count, and it still makes me cry everytime. There are few lead characters, in any movie genre, that have the kind of heart that William Wallace (Gibson's character) does. I usually do not love war movies or historical movies, but this one is definitely an exception. I also believe this movie is perfect for anyone (perhaps not children) because the plot has so many different levels. It includes a beautiful and devastating romance that makes even my boyfriend and father cry. The story is set in 13th century Scotland about the first war of independence from England.
