That's an interesting question, but I don't have an answer.
Sometimes I believe modern technology makes our lives easier and sometimes I think it makes it harder. However, each period of time has its own unique way of life, its own special needs, its own joys and sorrows.

The person after me silent and/or retro movies.

Did you forget a "likes" or something like that? :) In that case, I'm sorry to say I don't like silent films too much, but there's only a small part of films I love :)

The person after me likes biopics.

"More hard" is not technically incorrect, but there's a very strong preference for the synthetic comparative with monosyllabic adjectives and adverbs.

A "part" is always a piece of something. The way you have phrased it, it sounds like there's some minor element common to all films that you like (perhaps the credits). What you mean, though, is that, of all the films that exist, you only love a few. A more natural way to say this is "I only love a small number of films" or "there aren't many films I love".

Alternative: In particular, I enjoyed watching films about Assange and Jobs.

Not a lot, but I did memorise some when I was in high school. If I tried to recite them now, I think I'd make lots of mistakes.

The person after me knows the full lyrics to hundreds of songs.

Well...a friend of mine was planning to get divorced, and I have helped her in several ways before, but she got divorced and seems happy now.
