Steph:  I saw this movie Code 46 last weekend.

Derek:  Really? What was it about?

Steph:  Well, it was a sci-fi film. Normally, I am not really interested in sci-fi films. But, um, I got it because Tim Robbins was in it.

Derek:  Oh yeah? He’s a good actor.

Steph:  Yeah, he is. And he was a pretty good actor in this, but I was a little bit confused about the storyline.

Derek:  Why was it confusing?

Steph:  I don’t know. There were just all kinds of dangling issues. Like, there were things that I didn’t understand. Um, it was set in the future, but they didn’t explain things very well.

Derek:  Were they trying to keep it mysterious?

Steph:  It’s possible they were trying to keep it mysterious. But, at the end of the movie, I was baffled because I just didn’t understand anything which had happened.

Derek:  Kind of like a dream, maybe.

Steph:  Kind of. And I couldn’t tell if was me or if it was the movie.

Derek:  Well, maybe I’ll check it out and I’ll see what I think of it, too.

Steph:  Yeah. Just let me know.

Derek:  Ok.

There are always things you like and things you dislike about movies. For me, this movie was interesting because in the future, according to the movie, everyone would be speaking the same language.
The language everyone would be speaking is a mix of English and other languages. The other languages were mixed in like salt and pepper.
It was weird because one moment they were having an English dialog, but they would throw in words from other languages.
