Movie Discussion - General Statements

In this movie section, we are going to have discussions about movies that we already saw.  This is useful because whenever we come out of a movie theatre, we always ask our friends what we thought about the movie.  Sometimes, it's a simple answer such as, 'It was alright.'  But sometimes, a good discussion can arise from a great movie.  Let's get started...

Every time I finish watching a movie, I either ask someone, or someone asks me, "What did you think about the movie?"  For the most part, the answer is a simple one line sentence:

"It was alright."
"It could have been better."
"It was pretty good."
"I liked it."
"It was entertaining."
"It was so stupid I almost fell asleep."
"Lame"
"Boring"
"Too unrealistic"

I can go on for a long time describing movies.  I have listed a few so you get an idea how to answer simple movie questions.

Besides simple one line answers, there are a few reasons we need to say other things.  It is because either we didn't understand something, want to describe a scene we liked, want to describe a scene that was stupid, or simply go on and on about how great the movie was.
