There are many different types of movies and many differnet types of people to watch them with. Who do you prefer watching certain movies with?

Science fiction, brutal movies and action movies NEED to be watched with my brother. He always makes funny comments at approriate times and often takes the seriousness of the movies, which I like.
examples: Serenity, Kill Bill, Blade

Funny movies I love to watch with my boyfriend and two of his friends. I prefer that to watching with my bf alone because we laugh out loud at different things, though we have the same humor. We usually feel stupid when we laugh at different things...so two added people make it ideal, haha.
examples: Ice Age, Madagascar

Silly/funny movies are absolutely amazing while watched with a few of my relatives (they all happen to be male, how typical of me). The movies are usually too dumb to be enjoyable, but watching these type of movies with THEM makes them absolutely hilarious. But I try desperately to avoid "serious" movies, as these group of people often spoil them for me (Casino Royal for instance)
example: Malibu's Most Wanted

My all time favorite, Lord Of The Rings, I enjoy most when I watch alone. I know so much about the movie that I fear I might spoil it for others. I never do, but to be honest, I have a hard time shutting my mouth.

Historical war movies are one of my favorite types of movies, and I think they are more entertaining when watched in the theatre. At this point I dont care who I watch it with, as we dont really speak. I also like watching them alone.
examples: Troy, Alexander, King Arthur

Chick Flicks are most enjoyable with either my mom, or alone.
examples: Legally Blonde, Miss Congeniality

LOST, my favorite TV show, is definitely something I need to watch alone. I haaate watching it with others. haha. Desperate Housewives, on the other hand, is funner when I'm with my boyfriend. TV Shows based on criminal stuff, like CSI or Criminal Minds are more exciting while I watch them with my mom.

Your turn!

I need to watch my fave TV shows and chick flicks alone too, I'm afraid other people will ruin them by saying stupid things. Let me enjoy my stupid shows//movies please, kthx.

Anything else I can watch with anyone I think.

I watch House by myself because I get into it a lot, and feel dumb when I'm all into a TV show.

I like to watch shitty sci-fi movies with a few friends because it's more fun when you have a group of people making comments about it.

I always watch the Simpsons with my dad on Sunday. It's kind of a tradition in a way.

I don't watch South Park with my family, especially after the time my dad saw part of the Lemmywinks episode. Yeah.

I don't really watch anything alone. I prefer to watch everything with friends. Now that I'm away from MN, I haven't been watching LOST, either. Mostly because I have nobody to watch it with.

I always watch game shows with my parents, the question ones, it's a tradition thing aswell, we've done it forever.

Alone I find it the best to enjoy drama shows (Heroes, Bones, Asian dramas) - though with the opportunity of talking about them later with somebody. I do sort of want to watch Heroes with a friend who's big on X-Men and Lost (the two biggest influences of Heroes) but I don't know if we'll ever find the time/the opportunity.

Comedy shows I find mostly excellent watching with a friend - unless the type of comedy is not the friend's thing, so it's a little risky. Generally Black Books, Arrested Development, Coupling.. A lot of people are into those. I've yet to find somebody to watch Green Wing with. Entourage I REALLY want to watch with somebody because Entourage is x 10,000 awesome.

Chickflicks are guilty pleasure so naturally they're to be watched alone.

Bollywood/Indian movies with the friends who know & love them. With others, it's a bit risky. Though the best ones I can watch with just about anybody, if I can put up with their vapid commentary.

CSI with mum & her husband. Otherwise CSI can be lame. If I can't snark Grissom, what's the point?

Simpsons with my lil' bro. It's so funny how he laughs at completely different stuff than I do. Oh, kids.

Dad always has negative commentary to TV so I can only watch something he likes with him. Which is usually documentaries or Finnish comedy shows (Tabu ftw).

Mostly I prefer to watch movies alone, but I watch TV with my brother. Jackass is very funny to watch witch buddies or films like Saw. It goes like: "OMG, why is he doing something stupid like that?"

Comedy shows and films with my brother. He always keeps the funniest things in his mind and remind me all the time. Plus, we laugh at the same things. In fact I almost watch everything with my brother. It's nice to have one sometimes.

Chickflicks are romantic comedies, I guess? If so alone, usually. With my best friend sometimes so we can talk about how hawt were the people or how pretty the dresses were afterwards. But when I buy a dvd I always make my bro watch it too so I can talk about it, even though he doesn't listen to me.

House, alone, just like Jake. I really need to focus on the show, they talk very fast, it's not easy to follow. And I think my brother find me weird when I be all "omg, cameron hugged House! Yay!".

Other films, again, brother or best friend. I talk a LOT while watching so very few people like to watch movies with me.

Good thread, by the way.

Entourage I REALLY want to watch with somebody because Entourage is x 10,000 awesome.

endy watches entourage.

i generally watch stuff alone, but it's generally the same if i watch it with someone else too. nothing in particular.

I watch criminal minds with my dad cause we both like it.

I used to watch House alone at wednesdays, but now that Lost started again and I've seen the episodes that are airing right now, wednesday nights are usually spend by the computer.

The whole family usually always watch AFV (two episodes airing after each other) cause it's such a funny show.

There are a lot more shows I could have been watching on TV (I watch most of em on my computer though) if we had the right channel (TV3), but we can't get that here.
