North Korean Movies VS NYC Summer Blockbusters

"I would like to share my favorite movies with my father, such as The Matrix, Titanic, and Shrek. I would like to take him to the theaters in Seoul, just like he did in North Korea when I was a child."

I love watching movies. I like romantic comedies more than action films or thrillers. But summer is the season of action movies in America - there are a lot of Sci-Fi action movies on the screens! The stories are simple and almost always the same; either aliens attacking the Earth or “some bad guys” trying to destroy the US. I cannot understand why some American directors like to imagine extreme disasters. Two days ago, I went to watch the Man of Steel in 3D. To be honest, it was really boring for me because it was too long and the story was the same as previous hero movies. The 3D motion and images hurt my eyes a lot so I had to close my eyes many times during the movie.  I think I am not used to 3D technology.
