Any time you’re picking a film to watch, several things go into account: Who are you with? What time of year is it? Is your movie taste any good? (I’d hope so). All of these factors are key when deciding how to spend a night in, and one what you’ll want to watch.
1. With friends
Choose something fun! I have the issue of choosing a mind-bending psychological thriller, or a critically acclaimed drama when in reality, the masses usually just want to be entertained. A light-hearted comedy for a mixed group or an action blockbuster for the boys is always welcome.
2. By yourself
Go crazy with whatever you’re in the mood for. Be adventurous! Pick something you usually wouldn’t try, and see if you enjoy it. Netflix has a great selection on their instant watch page, and this link here has some great suggestions.
3. With your girlfriend
Whether it’s a girlfriend or just someone you’re getting to know, it’s never easy picking the right movie. The best idea, like in any relationship, is to be open and talk about it. Ask what movies she’d be willing to watch. What is she in the mood for? What’s something she’s always wanted to see? The more honest you are with each other, the more you will enjoy your night together.
4. With co-workers
Whatever you do, don’t watch something awkward that involves a business setting. Or something that’s suggestive towards a female co-worker – be tasteful.
5. With parents
Why are you watching a movie with your parents?!
