Do you like movies? How often do you watch them? I like movies, but I haven’t seen one for a long time. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I watched a movie. Maybe the last time I went to a cinema to watch a movie was three or four years ago. The last time I watched a movie at home was….I can’t remember.

This means that I don’t know very much about new movies. Sometimes my friends talk about new movies, but I have no idea what they are talking about, and I can’t join in the conversation. Sometimes people ask me, “Have you seen any good movies lately?” I have to answer “No”.

The only time I sit and watch movies is when I’m on a plane. If I have a flight of ten or twelve hours, I like to pass the time by watching movies. I don’t sleep very well on planes, so I feel tired and don’t feel like reading. Movies are good for times like these.

I guess I don’t watch movies so much because I prefer to read. If I have the choice between watching a movie at home or reading at home, I will always choose reading.

The one thing I enjoy watching is documentaries. I often watch these on YouTube. I enjoy all kinds of documetaries, but mainly I watch political and current affairs programmes. They are not movies, but they are interesting.
