1. What kind of movie is popular in your country?
I suppose that sci -fi movies510 are becoming more and more popular in my country, especially since the release of the big hit movie511 The Wandering Earth (流浪地球).There has been a new trend where Chinese sci-fi stories have become the next big thing, and right now everyone loves them. Actually there are more movies with sci-fi elements coming out these days, which is pretty exciting for fans like me. The enormous number of movie fans512 in China are expecting to see more good sci-fi movies in the future.
2. What kind of movie do young people like to watch?
Lately, young people have become big fans of sci-fi and superhero movies513. With the whole Marvel514 business exploding, most young people have fallen in love with the superhero universe. Honestly, I think any movie with an awesome action sequence really makes a movie stand out. Right now, wars against superheroes, or even superheroes versus superheroes are just so much fun to watch. Kids love them because there are even entire toy franchises that they can collect and be a part of.
3. Do you think cinemas will disappear in the future?
No, I don’t think cinemas will disappear. I feel like many people have believed that with new movie and TV show platforms like Youku or Aiqiyi that cinemas would die out, but that hasn’t really been the case515. In fact, with these awesome new movies coming out, I think more people have begun visiting the cinemas more often. You know, the cinema is all about the environment. With spectacular sound and visual effects516 at the cinema, you can enjoy a feast for the eyes and ears517 the way you can’t do at home.
4. Do you prefer to watch a movie at home or in a cinema?
I actually prefer watching movies at home, in my pajamas, while munching on518 whatever snack I feel like having. It5s a lot more convenient doing that then having to get all dressed up to go out and watch a film. I like that I can watch whatever movie I want, whenever I want, and also the privacy of watching it in my room is so nice. Cinemas require a lot more work and dedication. You have to wait to buy tickets, there are only certain times the movie is shown, and sometimes you can’t even bring your snacks.
5. What are the reasons that an actor is popular?
To be honest, I think that being attractive is the top reason. I don’t want to drop any names519, but there are certain actors out there who get these awesome movies but can’t actually act. It’s all in their appearance and name. Otherwise520, if an actor is really good at their job, then they become famous too. Actors like Tom Hanks or Zhang Ziyi are all popular because they really dig into their roles521 and are beyond amazing on screen. Sometimes they get so into their character that you forget about the actor all together! Those actors are the best.
