How to describe your favourite movie?


You have just watched the movie Gladiator and the enchanting performances by the artists have made it your favourite movie. You hang out with your friends on a weekend and the topic turns to favourite movies. Won't it be cool to take part in such discussions with your fluent English speaking skills? If you back out, it can lead to you being singled out in further discussions. Good speaking skills will help you describe your favourite movie in detail and will make you known as a communication expert  . Your friends may even watch it based on your recommendations. Below are a few things to keep in mind.


Things to remember while describing your favourite movie

1. Get background information

Since it is your favourite movie, you will put efforts in getting more information about the movie's background. This can include information on the director, stars, location and other basics of the movie. This knowledge will help you to describe the movie in greater clarity to your listeners. You can even include the place where you saw the movie, which can be a theatre or your home.

2. Summarize

Instead of narrating a two-hour commentary on the film, it is better to prepare a short summary of the movie using simple vocabulary and effective communication . It can include the main plot, beginning, climax and ending. Lengthy descriptions will only  bore your friends and turn them away. Keep your listeners gripped with proper usage of words and interesting summary. After summarizing, be sure to explain why you liked it in the first place.
