Miguel:  Hey Zach, have you seen Return of the King yet?

Zach:  Yeah. I finally saw that with my little brother, uh, two weeks ago.

Miguel:  So, what’d you think about it?

Zach:  I thought it was amazing. I thought it was a really good movie and capped off that series really well.

Miguel:  What did you think about it in comparison to the other two?

Zach:  Well, I thought that it, it was good that it finally kinda wrapped up some of the plot lines. Uh, the second one kinda seemed like it was right in the middle of something. And the first one was, was awesome, but I thought it was great to see everything wrapped up.

Miguel:  Had you read the books before you saw the movies?

Zach:  No. I still need to get around to that.

Miguel:  Yeah. They’re long books. I don’t know if I’ll ever get around to it now that I’ve seen ‘em on film.

Zach:  Yeah, I think I made it through The Hobbit, and that’s about, that’s about where I stopped.
