Steph:  Dude! Have you seen that new movie The Terminal?

Derek:  No, I haven’t seen it yet.

Steph:  Really? Have you heard anything about it?

Derek:  Yeah. I’ve heard a few reviews.

Steph:  What have you heard?

Derek:  That it’s pretty good like most Tom Hanks movies seem to be.

Steph:  Really? Yeah, he’s a good actor. I like him. Sometimes his movies are a little bit cheesy.

Derek:  Just every once in a while.

Steph:  Do you kno…

Derek:  With Steven Spielberg as a director, you can’t really go wrong there.

Steph:  Do you know what it’s about?

Derek:  It’s about a guy who gets into a United States airport and his country goes to war and so he can’t get back because his passport’s no longer valid.

Steph:  Oh my gosh! That sounds crazy! What would you do? Would you just camp out?

Derek:  You’d probably have to because you can’t go anywhere.

Steph:  That’s true! Yeah. Immigration won’t let you out and the airplanes won’t let you back in.

Derek:  Exactly.

Discussion

The closest thing to getting stuck in an airport I ever got was when I had a 10-hour layover in Dallas, Texas. What did I do you might ask? Well, I walked around and had a bite to eat and read a few magazines and the local paper. But mostly I just people watched. I am really looking forward to seeing what Tom Hanks’ character does with his time while stranded at JFK[/def].

well, this movie is really very touching. but i still can't believe that this kind of a situation is possible. for example, why was nobody looking for Victor for such a long time? didn't he have even one person in the world who cared of him? he's such a nice person! it's unreal!

did you know that Hanks' wife is half Bulgarian and that he actually speaks a little Bulgarian. In the beginning of the movie, when authorities try to communicate with him, he mumbles something in Bulgarian, like 'sorry, don't understand English' and stuff like like that.

i have to say TOM HANKS' is a perpect actor,in this film,his performance is excellent,act as a stranger in US,but meantime he express the human nature,kind-hearted.

It's worthy to watch again.
