Angie here: Recently I attended the How to Succeed in Hollywood (without losing your soul) filmmaking course to learn screenwriting. It's been a lifelong dream to write movies. But I learned so much more in the class!
|What kind of movies do you like?|
I have to admit I don't like movies with bathroom humor, vulgarity, and a lot of gratuitous sex/violence. I love movies with humor and I really love action/adventures like Indiana Jones or National Treasure where there's a quest and humor and adventure mixed in. One of my favorite movies ever is the deeply layered League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I laughed myself senseless at the continually high humor puns and nods to the classic books and movies. The references were brilliant. I've watched it several times and caught even more references each time. I want to write movies that are that highly entertaining, layered, and just plain excellent.
Look closely at the photo I posted. Isn't it amazing that theater owners know they earn more money with family-friendly movies? When families go to the movies they take 2-5+ people. When teen boys go, they sell 1-2 tickets. Family movies bring in more ticket sales. Hello. This should tell us something...
My questions to you are: What kind of movies do you like? What kind of content do you like or avoid in movies?
