In this lesson we will see different ways to talk about a movie.
Alan: I wish I were a Jack Sparrow’s crew member.
Nash: A crew member?! I’d like to be Jack Sparrow himself!
Alan: Johnny Depp fits into the character so well.
Nash: He does, right? Gosh, he’s such a versatile actor!
Alan: I’m longing for the next ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’.
Nash: Which part is your favorite?
Alan: I can’t really tell. I like all of them very much.
Nash: ‘The Curse of the Black Pearl’ is my favorite, by far!
Alan: I watched ‘Breaking Dawn Part 2’ yesterday.
Anna: I watched it, too! Isn’t it a great movie?
Alan: What?! No way!! It was a complete waste of my time!
Anna: Oh, come on. How can you say that?
Alan: v I’m so pissed at Kristen Stewart. She ruined everything!
Anna: Now, that’s a serious allegation. Everybody likes her.
Alan: Sure. Everybody but me! She may be beautiful but she’s not a good actress.
Anna: I think she’s perfect for the role.
Nash: Hey Lynn, how about a movie on Sunday?
Lynn: Yeah! I want to see that 3D horror movie.
Nash: ‘Silent Hill’?
Lynn: vThat’s it. I’ve watched the previous parts. Now I just can’t wait to watch the last one.
Nash: Well, I’m not a fan of horror. But I like 3D movies. Don’t you prefer to see ‘The Hobbit’?
Lynn: Horror in 3D is much better. It’ll be a blast! Come on, say yes!
Nash: Alright then! Deal. I’ll pick you up at 7.
Lynn: I’ll be ready!
Lynn: Okay, now, that is a scary movie!
Anna: What did you expect? It’s a horror movie. It’s supposed to be scary.
Lynn: Right, but this one is too good! It felt so real.
Anna: Real?! It’s called ‘Paranormal Activity’, Lynn. That stuff just doesn’t exist.
Lynn: Well..weren’t you watching?! How do you explain the door being closed when there was nobody in the room? Or the kid being attacked by something we couldn’t see?
Anna: Lynn, please, it’s a movie! Stuff like that doesn’t happen in real life.
Lynn: All I know is that I’m sleeping with my lights on!
Anna: You make me laugh!!
