Did you like the movie?

I’m sure you’ve asked and heard this question dozens of times. At the same time, talking about the film can be even more interesting than the picture itself. But this is possible only when all participants are ready to open their minds and you have interesting questions for discussion.

Today I want to share questions – puzzles that will give you a flight of thought and turn the film chat into a captivating dialogue.

But first, I’ll tell you how I use these queries myself.

First, I love to philosophize about cinema quietly to myself. It works great when a movie is stuck in my head and I’m trying to figure out why. This quiz is always the first step to understanding my movie obsession. Movie journals are always on my work shelf. In addition, I have an excellent article about why do I feel sad when a tv show ends.

Secondly, questions help me to have fascinating conservations with friends. Now we even come up with alternative movie plots while we eat pizza. Also, this quiz can help you chat up on a date or warm up an evening with your family. Or you can host a movie night with friends and discuss the movie later; it will be a lot of fun for movie lovers! 

Thirdly, I love to talk about films with my husband. We chat about our thoughts and feelings after the film, laugh and spend extra time together. It brings us very close!

But remember, this is not an interrogation. It is not a list of questions to be asked in a strict order. These queries are just ideas that can be developed. It is essential to respect each other opinions, even if it does not strongly coincide with your own. So don’t turn the chat into a fight.

  • I love going into in-depth discussions about things, especially movies! There’s no boring ‘I liked this movie because…’ stuff in here; THOSE are the group discussions I enjoy with other people. Thank you so much for sharing these!

  • Thank you so much for these! I’m always at a loss when discussing movies so these are just perfection!

  • I love all these questions! They make having a discussion about a film so much easier! I am working with my daughter on her comprehension skills, so I will use a few of these after we watch a movie to help her think more about what she watched.

  • I really love all of these questions. My husband sometimes asked me a question about the movie or film that we watch it helps me to understand more what was the film is all about.

  • These are all really good questions to get a discussion going about a film(s). I am about to watch a horror with my daughter. I hope it doesn’t relate to my life lol.

  • These are great questions. My favorite is number 14 and 19. There are many times that we actually try to come up with our own titles for the film. Anyway, I am bookmarking this post for future reference.
