Christine. What did you think of the movie? Did you like it?
Sarah. Not really, it was a little too… for me. It seemed like the director was trying so hard to impress us with strange close-ups and avant-garde dialogue that he forgot to include a story. I thought it was really boring.
Christine. I thought the movie was really… . I love it when a movie makes you think. It’s a nice change from the… dialogue and two-dimensional characters you usually see in films these days.
Sarah. I don’t really care for… films. They are so dark and depressing. The characters are always so… . Why does a movie have to be sad to be deep?
Christine. Yeah, I know what you mean, but… cinema is nothing but gunfights and exploding cars. I get so sick of movies like that. I prefer movies with substance.
Sarah. But sometimes, you don’t want to think; sometimes, you just want a… movie. Like that comedy with Billy Crystal – that was so… . I laughed so hard that I cried.
Christine. Movies have to be more than… to me.
Sarah. Did you see that new mystery movie with Nicole Kidman that came out last month? That was so… . I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.
Christine. I loved that movie. The plot was great, and the acting was incredible. I wouldn’t be surprised if it were nominated for an Academy Award.
Sarah. Well, at least we agree on something. I guess we’ll have to stick to mysteries in the future.
