It is no secret that we all have our own favorite type of movie. Some of us enjoy action, while others enjoy the more romantic ones. There is comedy and drama, and we could never forget those animated family films either! Even though we all tend to drift one way or another, there are some people out there who have an eye for good films, regardless of their genre.

Get ready for this one movie fans, it is going to be all kinds of epic!

However, while he put so much effort into her, he forgot to also take care of himself.

How did everyone here feel about this popular film?
Beauty and the Beast:
Here is a classic to say the least. Nobody from her town was ever able to deny the beauty that was young Belle. However, they also all saw her as a fairly strange individual. To be fair, she did fall in love with a rather large beast, but this was not what the townspeople had based their judgments on. This movie really taught us all how important it is to get to know someone, before passing judgments. Thoughts on this film?
The Shape of Water:
Keeping on the theme of unlikely relationships, this film was all about a mute woman who fell in love with a strange cross between a man and an amphibian. Elisa spent most of her time in solitude.

We have had our fair share of Spidey films in recent years. In fact, since 2002, we have had three different actors play the role of Spider-Man. In this question, we are talking about the most recent film. Tom Holland took on the role in this film, and he certainly did look the part. Instead of focusing on how he got his powers, this film showed us young Peter Parker discovering how to properly use his newfound webs. Worth it or not really?
Bryan was a protective father, to say the least. His job was to protect the entire country, so naturally, he took a special interest in keeping his daughter safe as well.

Of course on her very first night away from home, she was taken. Lucky for her, her dad is the only man in the world capable of finding her.
Big Hero 6:
While some movies try to scare us with the use of robots, this movie did the exact opposite. Young Hiro was very skilled in all things technology. His very best friend in the whole world was actually a robot. When his city fell under attack by bad guys, Hiro knew he had to do whatever he could to help. His gang of robot buddies was right there with him since they were obviously not going to let anything happen to their human pal.

Of course, neither of them could even say the word "duty" without giggling.
Ant-Man and the Wasp:
Let's take a look at the smallest hero in the MCU. Ant-Man is not only tiny compared to some of the other MCU men, but he is also a lot funnier than most of them. When comedy meets action, the movie will naturally lead to some pretty big audiences. Scott Lang was not exactly convinced on being a full-blown superhero by the end of his first film, but once the Wasp approached him for help in the second film, he knew he was all out of options.
A Quiet Place:
Ironically enough, while the characters in this film were not able to speak without risking their lives, this movie created quite a bit of talk around town. The idea of a thriller with little to no sound at all, spooked people to their very core. After the world had been invaded by aliens with supernatural hearing abilities, one family has managed to survive by being extremely quiet. With the mother about to go into labor though, things are going to get a little bit more tricky.
