IELTS speaking part 2 and 3: Talk about a movie you watched in a cinema
Speaking Part 2
Examiner: Tell me about a movie you watched either at home or in a cinema. Please say:
- What movie was it?
- What was it about?
- Did you enjoy it?
- Why did you remember this movie?
Candidate: I will talk about the movie xxx. It is a Malayalam movie that I watched in a cinema about 20 years ago. It was a blockbuster. Actually, I watched the same movie on TV yesterday. It is one of my favourite movies and I have watched it countless times. It is the story of a father and a son. The father is an upright police constable who lives for his wife and children. He wants his eldest son to be a sub inspector of police. The son is good at his studies and is keen on fulfilling the wishes of his father. Unfortunately, things don’t go as per their plans and the son eventually becomes a rowdy shattering the dreams of his parents. I like this movie because its storyline is something that I can relate with. I believe in family relationships, especially the relationship between parents and children. The other things that I like about this movie are its screenplay and the brilliant performance of the actors. It starred some of the finest actors in the Malayalam film industry.
Speaking Part 3
Examiner: What part do movies play in your life?
Candidate: I am not a movie buff. Actually, I don’t watch more than a handful of movies in a year. So, movies are not an essential part of my life. I mainly watch them for entertainment. I like Bollywood movies for their dance and songs and Malayalam movies for their realistic portrayal of life. While I like most of the films I have watched, they have had no real impact on my actions or thoughts.
Examiner: Should so much money be put in producing good movies?
Good movies certainly recoup their investment, so in my opinion there is no harm in spending a lot of money on producing good movies. You need good actors, writers and directors to produce a good movie. Since they charge a premium, I don’t think that it is possible to produce a good movie without spending huge amounts of money.
