I sometimes watch movies.I'd prefer to watch series to movies.They are prone to be more escapist than movies, though.My favourite movies are Godfather and Forest Gump.When it comes to movies I stick to old ones.As the saying goes oldies but goldies!
I can think of Liam Neeson, Daniel Craig, Jude Law, Ian McKellen, Jason Statham, Emma Watson, Natalie Dormer, Emilia Clarke so on when it comes to British film starts.
I dare say that my favourites are Liam Neeson and Jason Statham.

in the task 4 what is the rule for choosing one of (whom, whose, which and of ) for the given sentences? thank you

@nicky62 Whom should be used to refer to the object of a verb or preposition. When in doubt, try this simple trick: If you can replace the word with “he”' or “'she,” use who. If you can replace it with “him” or “her,” use whom. Who should be used to refer to the subject of a sentence.

Hello nicky62,

The form here is quantifier + of which/whom/whose.

The quantifier tells us an amount or number: some, many, a few, a thousand etc.

We use 'of which' when we are talking about things; 'of whom' when we are talking about people; and 'of whose' when we need a possessive meaning for either people or things.

hello , I couldn't find the meaning of 2 words from dictionary(sheppertons and leavesadens) would u help me please.

Hello nicky62,

These are the names of studios in the UK where films are made. Since they are proper names, you won't find them in a dictionary but a normal internet search will give you plenty of information on each place.

thank you peter , I am so glad having u to answer my questions .

I don`t watch movies on a regular basis, but when I am in the mood or have some time or somebody recommends a good one I watch it. Drama and comedy are my favourites, I am so emotional and thus I prefer the films that can touch my feelings, make me cry or laugh or even think deeply. Sure I won`t mind some thriller too, you know, these ones that makes you skip a heartbeat. Forrest Gumb, starring Tom Hanks would always be the best for me, a great comedy with ever-inspiring scenes. I also like The Pianist and The Reader, and call them the perfect films, great from all aspects, acting, directing, music and every small detail.
Actually, I can`t think of how many British film stars and directors are around? There must be a big number of them, Britain is famous of its creativity and talented people. Kate Winslet amazes me by her performance and courage as in The Reader. Jude Law, the handsome guy and Sean Connery, the bond star.

I totally agree with you. If I happen to watch a movie that should be something that touches either my feelings or my thinking, though

Considering that I used to watch movies very often and now I prefer reading a book I'm still a huge fan of cinematography. I like to watch arthouse and some meaningful or old, and even black-and-white, movies at home and I really enjoy watching some action, science fiction or fantasy ones on a big screen of a movie theate. There are a lot of my favourites and a genre to watch depends on my mood and emotions I eager to experience at a certain time of my life. More often I watch films which make you think rather than just entertain.
