Helloooooo! Welcome... once again! LOL
 
Sooo wondering what this week's going to be about ?
Well let's see...
 
There are many movies that get released these days. Some manage to to become hits, while others disappear without a trace. There are some which stick in your heart even after watching it, while the others seem like a regrettable decision.
 
What makes a movie worth watching ?
I mean obviously there needs to be a good storyline. One that is really intriguing and interesting to watch. But then again, not all movies with great storylines end up becoming big hits. And some movies with even a very thin storyline still manage to make it to the top of the box office.
 
Sooo..
What do you guys think attributes to making a movie worth watching? What are the key factors in making the movie reach out to the audience?
 
You guys are the audience right ? so there's nothing better than getting the opinions from the people themselves LOL

hmm. this is going to be a short response, don't have that much time

But, I would say along with the storyline, which honestly isn't that important for me, it's the acting.

Only if the actors can pull off a specific scene or role well will I be able to tolerate watching them for the 2-2.5 hours of the movie.

If I don't think an actor or actress can emote well, and can't delve themselves into the role of their character, I don't enjoy watching their movies.

There's more for me, like if it's my favorite actor or actress, I'll sit through the movie regardless of how bad the storyline might be LOL

But yeah, ultimately the deciding factor would be the actual performance of the respective cast of a movie.

Interesting topic..... Clap
 
Well for me first preference would be the story  then script then comes, the director, actos and the songs of course..
 
Only a good story can make a good picture but its not necessary that all good stories turns into the best movies, it depends on how its been directed and treated...

Nice topic VIdhya!

For me, the movie must be clean.
 
Then the actors have to be good. If the actors do a great job, they can pull off a weak storyline.
 
Next storyline, then everything else, lol :)
