Movie Discussion - Example Dialog

As of this writing, the latest movie I saw was The Last Samurai.  After the movie, I had a meal with a couple of people.  We had a good discussion due to this movie.  It is difficult to specifically teach what you will need to know about movie conversations because every movie will require different words and sentences.  The only thing I can do here is to give ideas and couple of examples about movie conversations.  So this is not really going to be a practice section, but a chance to hear a real conversation from a movie.  You can click on each individual sentence, or you can click on the link provided below to hear a real life conversation.
 
 Listen to the conversation
 
 A:  "Did you like the movie?"
 B:  "It was better than I thought."
 C:  "I liked it."
 A:  "The movie didn't have many cheesy or stupid scenes."
 B:  "Yeah.  I'm glad that they didn't have any love scenes.  Sometimes a love scene destroys a good movie."
 C:  "I thought the scene where the girl was washing her hair and Tom Cruise came to say good bye was stupid.  Why did they have that there?  It didn't make sense."
 B:  "I agree.  They didn't need that scene."
 A:  "I don't see the harm in that scene.  They didn't do anything or show anything.  What's the big deal?"
 C:  "When you are talking about good movies versus great movies, each and every scene counts."
 A:  "That's true."
 B:  "But besides those one or two scenes, the movie was great."
 A:  "I liked everything about it.  I really liked the samurai that was beating up Cruise in the beginning of the movie.  The guy second in command.  He was cool too."
 B:  "Every movie has a guy like him.  They try to make him awesome even though they don't say much."
 C:  "I don't understand why Tom Cruise went back to that village.  If he was the only survivor, wouldn't that make everyone suspicious about where his loyalty lies?"
 A:  "It was clear in the movie that he loved the place and the samurais.  Clearly everyone knows that he isn't a traitor.  I would have done the same thing in his position."
 B:  "I think so too."
 C:  "But isn't it suspicious that he is the only survivor."
 A:  "Well, all the samurais were looking for a death in battle.  Cruise wasn't."
 C:  "But only the boss received the satisfaction of being killed with the sword.  Nobody else did."
 A:  "True."
 B:  "What are we going to order?"
 C:  "I am going to have a chicken burger because of the Mad Cow disease."
 A:  "Me too."
 B:  "I'm just having a soup and salad."
