Film Viewer Opinion
This summary will address how I determine which films to watch, what makes a film enjoyable, and what makes a film unenjoyable to watch. The opinions expressed in this summary are solely those of the author and not of University of Phoenix, its staff, or facilitators.

The same technical elements that make a film enjoyable to watch such as plot, script, characters, actors, the setting or location, and emotional and educational values can also make a film unenjoyable to watch with additional elements, including the director(s) or producer(s).
Whatever genre of film one chooses to engage him or her-self in is one made by the viewer. Films are created to appeal and reach various audiences. Films and movies are primarily created to entertain individuals. Various films will appeal to one’s senses, imagination, experiences, and points of view on a particular subject or event. Ultimately, what determines what makes a film enjoyable and unenjoyable is solely determined by what appeals to the viewer.
