Do you enjoy going to the cinema? What sort of films do you like watching? How about films from your country? Are there any you’d recommend to other podcast listeners?

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.

Excuse me, I can not open this audio, could you fix it please?

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.

Hello everyone! I do like to go cinema, i like different films such as science fiction, action, drama. Even i would like to try act in films. My favorite films are I am legend, fight club, Nocturnal Animals, in general them is a lot.
I from Russia and our directors make good films but them are a little.

I prefer comedies and animations. I'd never take my girlfriend to watch documentary like Jamie - I think it so boring.

I love going to the cinema.

Hi folks
I really like to go to the cinema , I used to go once a month , but today I just go to watch a blockbuster film due the fee has become very expensive and I can´t afford it anymore , regardless go to the cinema still being cheaper than others entertainment .
A like all sort of films , I do believe the most imporant thing in a film is to be a very good story to tell , independent if it is drama or action .
But the most thing a like to go to the cinema is the popcorn with butter it is amazing !!!
