Joy: Movies.......

I was  not raised or encouraged to watch much movies....I had hardly seen any English movie till I turned 25...
On the other hand, my spouse had watched thousands of movies in English or other international languages...
He showed me 'Harry Potter;', 'Lord of the Rings' series, 'Christmas carol', 'The exorcist'..which I absolutely loved...also, 'Ip man', 'Thor', 'Ratatouillie', 
I always preferred reading over watching.....my English vocabulary was and is rich...
But, in the TOEFL examination (required for non-English speakers to study in the USA), when I got almost full score in listening, writing, reading sections, but got much less in speaking section, I decided to watch a movie every now and then...to pick the accents...
Not many movies interest me enough to watch for 2-3 hours...
Though sometimes I do choose.......after all mood and taste changes...
