    western films

    The following sentence 1 is awkward. How should it be rewritten in a natural way? Is sentence 2 better?

    1. There are many movies in the movie theater and TV. I love to watch them, too. I usually watch western movies.
    2. I love movies, especially western films. There are so many movies showed in the movie theater or on TV.

    Your second is an improvement over your first. I would change the second sentence to: "There are many movies shown in theaters or on TV."

    I agree with Mike.

    Additionally, you can call western movies 'westerns'.
