Hi I am currently doing a Japanese task about inviting people to a birthday party. I want to write that we will watch a movie but it will not be titanic. Is のはタイタニックを見ないようにしましょう right or did I get it wrong?

What would be a good way to write the details of the party on the invitation?

    What do you mean by 「のは」?

    Maybe not what you had in mind, but I'd go with "タイタニック以外の映画を観ましょう。".

  • perhaps (depending on the exact context) タイタニックはちょっと。。。ほかの映画にしたらどうだろうなって. alternatively: 映画は見るけどタイタニックは見ない。could be spiced up with ~見るつもり/予定だ or じゃない instead of は見ない Sep 29, 2015 at 5:04
