2016年5月28日托福独立写作范文：It is only worth watching movies that teach us something of real life. (16.05.28)
Movies become the important part of our life in modern society. Some people think that it is only worth watching movies that teach us something about real life. But I didn’t agree with it because different people have different reason to watching movie so they have different definition about worth watching movie.
Some people watching the movie just because they want to be relax, so they will choose the movie musical or comedy. They more care about the enjoyment of the story rather than authenticity and education of the story. For example, because of that people just want to spend the happy and relaxing time with their family the comedy movie always became the best choice in the Christmas day.
The others want to look the different experience that they can never meet in real life on the movies. People can image that they are the supermen who can rescue the world or the Harry Potter who find he was wizard on eleven years old birthday. Supernatural, magic and star wars become the most popular theme when teenagers choose films. The worth watching movie in teenagers should be fantasy, thrilled and unexpected. The more unbelievable the movie is the more popular it is.
Although there are some people want to learn some things about the real life by the movies. But they also admit that if a movie full of the moral education and authentic life will losing the artistry and attraction. Not only the story about real life can teach us but also the story of history and unreal things can do that. So watching history movie can also be the good choose for the people who want to learn some things.
There are so many different kinds of movies that play up to all people’s hobby. Someone’ s honey may be other one’s poison. Every movies can be the worth watching movies. Just choose the movie you like.
With remarkable progress of people’s livingstandard, watching movies seems to be a dispensable part of people’s lives, as movies notonly entertain the viewers but also enlighten them. Some people claim that only movies thatcan teach us something about real life are worth watching. However, I regard this assertion asunfair and arbitrary, because there are at least 2 otherkinds of movie that are also worthwatching: comedy and scary movie. And my reasons and examples are given below.
Comedies are worth watching, for they give us a real good way to relax ourselves. It is becausethe only goal that the comedies try to achieve is tomake people laugh and laughing is in factproven by science to be one of best medicines to alleviate pressure, pain or depression. Istill can remember when I was preparing for the college entrance examination--a make-or-break exam that even determines one’s future--the most enjoyable thing was to watch aJimCarrey movie after a whole day’s hard work. Through those hilarious plots andexaggerating acting of Jim Carrey, my intense minds suddenly got relaxed.
Another kind of movies, scary movie, is also worth watching because it allows people toexperience the excitement of horror under a safe circumstance.In most cases, people arepursuing happiness while avoiding risks, but humanbeing’s nature of curiosity sometimesmakes us want to experience those fearful feelings that we hate to have in real life. Thoughthis kind of mind may be paradoxical, but it does exist sometimes. For example, almost everyscary-movie lover enjoysthe moment when they breathed a sigh of relief at the end of themovie.Vicariously sharing the experience of others can be a kind of happiness.
Admittedly, people really benefit a lot from movies that can teach us something about real life. For instance, some movies teach us how to deal with relationship between family members, some teach us how to realize one’sAmerican dreams by defeating difficulties one after another, and some great movies show us what is true love. Nevertheless, no matter how useful andmeaningful these movie can be, it is still inappropriate to assert that they arethe only onesworth watching.
In conclusion, it is absurd to believe that it is only worth watching movie that can teach ussomething about real life. As another 2 important movie genres, comedy and scary movie areequally important to our lives and should be given due respect.
