    Default get a kick from

    '' I get a kick from talking to watching movies" Would that sound good, If I said that in order to say that I like movies a lot?

    You could say I get a kick from watching movies- I can't see what talking to is doing in your sentence. However, I wouldn't use get a kick for this- I'd use for for something less commonplace than watching movies.
