Autumn has arrived, along with its rainy days and less luminosity. Those days are perfect to stay home and watch to a good movie… maybe even in our pjs! Today, we are interested in our Polyformers favourite movies to give you some suggestions for this season.
SEBASTIEN – SALES
Fight Club! This is Sebastien’s favorite movie. He cannot remember the number of times he watched it, he even read the book three times! When time comes to see a movie that he has been anticipating for a long time, one thing is essential: a mega sound system… at the theater! He still enjoys watching movies at home surrounded by his family with a reasonable decibel level. Sebastien enjoys thrillers, as he likes to be “challenged”, but he also likes to shut his brain off and laugh his head off. On the other hand, do not invite him for a musical comedy evening; you can be sure he won’t accept! He may be more interested to films that include “evil genius”, such as Hannibal Lecter.
NANCY – QUALITY CONTROL & PURCHASING
Nancy tried to make a short list of her favourite movies, but she quickly got twenty! What do you want she is a true movie enthusiast, no matter the genre! She gave us her favourites by category. According to her, a perfect movie is one that will make her laugh as much as cry: “Untouchables” is a good example. On the other hand, what better way to question oneself than a good science fiction movie filled with apocalyptic theories? Movies such as “Cartography of the Clouds” or “Mad Max: Fury Road” come to mind. More political, investigative and suspenseful films like “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” or the recent “Miss Sloane” got her attention. Let’s not forget all the feel good movies, from here or from foreign countries, such as “Four Weddings and a Funeral”, “Slumdog Millionaire” or “The Holiday”, stories she never gets tired of. Finally, she really enjoys movies where the big star is music. Amongst her favourites: “Flash Dance”, “Pitch Perfect”, “Dirty Dancing” and “Mamma Mia” to name a few. Ah! She also loves “Finding Nemo” and “Astérix et Cléopâtre”!
SYLVAIN A. – IT
Sylvain only needed 5 seconds before naming his favourite movie: Top Gun. This classic action movie starring Tom Cruise never goes out of style. Action movies and comedies are Sylvain’s favorite genres. From times to times, he likes to treat himself to a good movie in a theater with his wife and kids, but he also enjoys watching movies at home. He’s looking forwards to the next action movie release!
GENEVIEVE – SALES
Geneviève has really varied tastes in cinema, so she needed a moment to name her absolute favorite movie: Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. It is her favorite because of the actors (Jack Nicholson among others), and the suspense delivered in a way that differs a lot from modern horror movies. She’s also looking forwards to see how the sequel will be brought up.
You probably guessed that her predilection genre is psychological horror: Nothing better than watching a movie, comfortably seating on the couch with a big warm blanket (also used as a stress catcher in the most intense scenes!). She also enjoys going out to the theater when movies are really worth it. Geneviève is starting to get into Sci-Fi, another genre adding up to all the others she already appreciates, from animations to documentaries, passing by thrillers, or even dramas from foreign countries!
