Find a conversation partner
If you are worried about having an interesting discussion, then try to find a dialogue companion. This can be your neighbor, friend or someone from work who shares your same interests.
Try saying “what did you think of this movie” or “did you go to the screening with any expectations? What was that like for you?” People will feel more at ease starting a conversation and they will have a common ground with each other.
If there is no one around who shares your interest in movies, visit a film forum online. There are many forums where people associate themselves with others based on their interests. You can ask fellow members what they thought about different films.
This is also a great way to learn something new! Although the discussions may be very academic, you should still take notes because it will help you later when you search for information regarding a movie.
Set a time
Once you’ve found someone to talk with, which may be years before you actually do so, take the time to really set them up for success.
They need to know what you want them to say in order to avoid sounding like they are reading from a script.
You can certainly ask questions and help them get into the right mindset, but it is their job to make you feel comfortable and welcome.
It all starts with setting a time and date for them to meet with you. Make it at a reasonable hour (no early morning meetings).
Then work on planning everything that needs to be said during the meeting. Both people should go into the meeting feeling relaxed and confident.
A large part of successful communication is confidence, so spend some time practicing how you will start the conversation and who you will speak with. Then find out if there are any expectations or assumptions going on about how you should behave.
Maybe your colleague just forgot about your disability, which is great! However, if your friend has other ideas such as waiting until after the holidays or spring break, then this might create problems.
Practice talking about things that worry you and bring up topics that you have been thinking about telling someone else about. It works better than trying to keep these thoughts between you and whatever happens when you wake up in the morning.
The more times you put yourself out there, the easier it gets. Plus,
Choose a movie to watch
Once you have decided on which movie to see, find a quiet place where you will not be interrupted, and set up the television or computer device that you use for watching movies. Make sure there is enough space in your location to accommodate the movie you want to watch as well as your desired level of privacy.
Many people choose to eat their meal while watching a film. If you do this, make sure that you leave room for dessert! Otherwise you are just wasting money and time.
However, if eating during the movie, make it an early morning breakfast or lunchtime snack so that you can have a longer day at school. By keeping yourself full away from dinner, you will feel less like sleeping by the end of the night.
Find a quiet room
Does she want to watch a movie or go out? If you’re not sure, there are times for both options. The best time is when they’re relaxed and they can focus on what you say.
Also, who knows? Maybe your idea of a good time is different from hers. Try finding a movie that fits the mood you want to create around them!
For example, try watching Movies Under Moonlight with their sheets set up next to each other so it feels calm and comfortable. Then you can really focus on having a great time.
At this stage, find some music you like and have either themselves or someone else play while you’re talking about movies. This way everyone can enjoy listening as well as chatting.
Try going to a bar where people are drinking alcoholic beverages. It will be loud, which may affect how much you talk to others, but maybe that’s okay. Or you could visit a party and have something to eat and drink.
Games like “who has been here the longest” or “whose drunk farting more violently than me” might help pass the Time Of Talking. Any game that needs movement should be done before anyone goes home, or after anyone has passed the karaoke phase.
Turn on something fun
If you are attending the movie date, make sure that you turn on your TVs and plug in your audio devices so they can work. People love listening to other people talking about movies.
The best movie dates are when there’s a good game show or someone has brought food and it’s being served. It helps break up the eating part of the night.
Also, make sure that you have some type of music or noise going on before the film starts so people don’t come dressed to watch the film but then find their way out to the parking lot too early.
Bring outside food if you can (no inside food unless specified by restaurant policy).
If anyone is running late, let others know so they do not wait for them. After all, nobody likes a no-show.
Try having a topic discussion prior to the movie start. That way viewers will be prepared to join the conversation after watching the movie.
Have a question for next month’s movie as well.
Do you like horror films, action sequences, or science fiction? What types of movies appeal to you?
Are you more into classical cinema, comedy films, or dramatic stories?
Turn On Your TV
Given the number of potential distractions such as phones, computers, and hobbies, making time for entertainment usually means setting limits
Do not talk for the first hour
The average movie goes through several stages during its opening weekend. Initially, people are hesitant about the film to explain their feelings about it. Then, there is an excitement around discussing the film’s subject matter and finding out more information about it. After that, they tend to want to watch the film from beginning to end to understand all of the details and themes present in the movie.
These two things both have a positive effect on ticket sales, but unfortunately, they can also negatively affect a franchise or original film. It is said that the best ads or trailers for movies promote how great the movie is, rather than telling you anything about the movie.
This is because people are already interested in seeing the movie and will therefore be excited to try your product whether or not it says much about the movie. As soon as customers realize that the movie is bad, they’ll start avoiding buying tickets for that movie too.
Talk about the movie
After you’ve watched the movie, discuss how you felt about it. Were there any parts of the film that stood out to you? Was there anything in the story that surprised you?
Was there something in the filmmaking or acting that caught your attention?
Talk about what you thought of the movie, including comments if you feel so moved. Then talk about why you liked or didn’t like the film.
Were there any scenes or elements from the film that you think are funny?
Turn off devices
Before you get into the scene, turn off your device (s) that connect to phones or other personal computers. Look at your phone’s settings and see if there is an option for data disconnection when watching movies or television shows.
Some systems have features that shut down devices while hands-free usage is enabled. If you are running any type of security system, make sure you’re aware of the risks associated with using these devices in your house or office.
If you need to take a break from your device, try stepping away to avoid distraction and recharge your battery. It only takes a few minutes to feel refreshed and ready to continue working or playing.
It is okay if you decide to go into it casually, but avoid being cheesy.
There are many free online movies that you can watch’ leave room in your schedule for this one.
Consider having fun with game nights once a week to blow off steam and have something playful do so. Having more friends who also want to spend time together and enjoying each other’s company is great, but playing games create an environment where people don’t usually talk much about what they really feel.
Finding ways to play games (and have fun) doesn’t have to cost money! Most stores now offer mini-games in shopping areas which seperate them so people can enjoy them without leaving the store.
The options are limitless, even as young kids when put up against toys that force them to use their imagination. Don’t worry about rules, goals, sets, scores or anything like that while having fun.
It is all about having faith in the kind of joy these things bring to others and yourself.
Bullet point: Visit new places
