TOPIC:It is better to watch serious movies that are designed to make you think than to watch movies that are primarily designed to amuse or entertain. (Agree/Disagree)

An ongoing debate exists over whether it is better to watch serious movies that are created to make you think than to watch movies that are mainly made to amuse or entertain. Some people may prefer watching serious movies over watching movies for entertainment. My view, however, is that it is better to watch movies that are made for enjoyment. This is because that those kinds of movies enable people to have some quality time with their families and to relieve their stress.

To begin with, by watching movies that are designed for fun can be one thing that family can enojy together. Since the family, in these days, have few things to do together, this can be a good opportunity to have some family time. To illustrate, in general, parents like doing outdoor activities such as hiking, golfing and children prefer to stay home to play computer games or surf the Internet. Many families choose to watch movies together at home. There are many different kinds of movies that appeal to both parents and children and a home theater system made it easy to enjoy this at the comfort of their homes. So this will lead family members to have more communications with each other. Watching serious movies that are made to think, may not be the most appealing genre for familes to watch together. In this sense, movies that make people amuse or entertain are better to watch than the ones that make people think.

In addition, watching fun movies will give people to relieve their stresses. People in today’s society, keep a busy schedule, and this often worn people out. So people need to find a way to relieve their stresses in order to stay sane. According to a study recently released by the Yale University, two-thirds of the surveyed people who are constantly distressed mentioned that the perfect method of having some refreshing time is to watch movies such as comedies. This study indicated that people who watch movies, which do not require people to think that much, enable them to diminish their stresses. So, people can focus better at work with those kinds of movies that give laughs and a good rest to them. In this sense, watching movies, that lighten people up, gives them great mental benefits.

In conclusion, I firmly believe that it is better to watch movies for their amusement or entertainment. The reasons are that it gives people to spend time with their family and to relieve their stress.

Kitos. 8/10

Thanks Kitos!

I think paraphrasing was challenging one for this essay.
I couldn’t think of many different ways to paraphrase “watch movies that are primarily designed to amuse or entertain”.

Yeah, it was a tricky one. At least you made best of a difficult subject.
