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.

 

Best wishes,

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.

I know why Great Britain has more creative people, per head of population, than anywhere else in the world. Because people from all over the world (talented people) emigrated to the Britannia and USA, and they still keep on doing this.

I'd say I watch a movie at least once a month, mostly on TV or on tablet though. We go to the cinema only when there are animation blockbusters.

The Lord of the Rings trilogy has always been my favorite. I have watched those films so many times and I still find them exciting.

Oh, how many British film stars and directors are around? This is a good question. I am actually not very sure. I usually cannot tell which person is from the UK. Some of them have so little accent, or I was completely absorbed in the story and forgot other things.

I like Daniel Radcliffe, Benedict Cumberbatch, and also Alan Rickman who just left us a few days ago. Audrey Hepburn was such a big name in world film history, whose fame is still rarely exceeded today. Elizabeth Taylor was a British too. I need to watch more movies and learn a lot about actors and directors.

Not very frequently nowadays.
