    I didn't enjoy some(?) of the films...

    Hello!
    Is it possible to use "some" instead of "any" in a negative sentence?

    E.g."I didn't enjoy some of the films I have watched recently." Does it mean I enjoyed some of them, but I didn't like the other ones?

    Yes, it does.

    If you didn't like any of them, you disliked them all.
