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.
