Hello!
What does the sentence "I don’t want to stay and watch all the credits" in the task 7? I'm particularly interested in the meaning of "credits" here.

Hello Dmevko

In the context of film, 'credits' is the list of the names of all the people and companies that worked to create the film that is shown after the film is over.

I'm not much interested in going to the movies because we don't have much interesting movie in my country. and I don't like to watch movies on TV too because all the part of movies are censored.I'd rather watch movies on my laptop at home.
we have good directors and actors but the government don't let them work for example KiaRostam and Asghar Farhadi are good directors of my country but because of the resteriction and censorship they prefered to work out of my country.

Hi everyone!
Perhaps i like going to the cinema. But, atmosphere in the cinema like myself more than films recently. Ordinary in cinema show films with simple plot, movies are like to each other in my opinion of cource. Actually i foget about watching many of them. But of cource i have seen good films in the cinema too. From recent films i really liked Bohemian Rhapsody and Green book. It's absolutely brilliant films. And i was really glad, when this films has been got Oscar. I really recommend you watch them!
My favorite genres of films is drama and thriller. I prefer serious films, when you can thinking about life after watching them.My the most favorite films is Forrest Gump and Green Mile. Also i dont mind watching comedy, for example to cheer up. I think comedy one of the best sort of films to going to the movie. Espesially for having good time with friends. Also action films, it's difinitely more interesting watch at the cinema.

Hello... I have a doubt when Jamie ask his friends Anybody want popcorn? No? OK, let's go in then. Follow me. The correct form is wants?

Hello Malu84,

This is a question in which the auxiliary verb has been omitted. The full, and grammatically correct, question would be:

Does anybody want popcorn?

 

In informal speech the auxiliary verb is sometimes omitted from yes/no questions. For example:

(Do) You live here?

(Are) You having a good time?

(Do) You know what time the film starts?

Hello everyone, I really like to go to the cinema where I can watch the movies on a big screen, with the quality speakers and can be enjoyed it with everybody. So amazing! I like watching science fiction films as Inception, Predestination, Source Code, the Butterfly Effect, Edge of Tomorrow...I also like drama and mystery movies such as the Prestige, Gone Girl, The Man from Earth, Limitless, Coherence, Seven... Sometimes I watch the film which wins Oscar, Golden Globe or the film is rated on IMDB. I rarely watch films from my country. You can refer some films I mentioned above.
Thanks for reading.

In fact for me there are good films almost in all genres, most of all I prefer psychological, thriller and action films (not everyone), of course I like watching them in the cinema. My favourite film trilogy is The Lord of The Rings.
