Sometimes when I read about a new movie, I get really excited to go and see it. This new movie I read about looks pretty good. It’s got a lot of action in it and a few really famous actors as well. See if you can recognize the actors and if you can remember any other movies that they have been in.

Steph:  Have you ever been to IMDB.com?

Derek:  Uh, no, I haven’t.

Steph:  It’s a website where you can look at movies and you can find out all about them. I was there yesterday and I saw a new movie that’s coming out.

Derek:  What’s it called?

Steph:  It’s called Crash. It’s got, um, Sandra Bullock and Matt Damon in it. Matt Dillon, sorry.

Derek:  I haven’t heard of that. What’s it about?

Steph:  Well, it’s about a car crash and these people, in L.A., get into a car crash. And then they’re stuck at the scene of the accident.

Derek:  What do you mean by stuck at the scene of the accident?

Steph:  Well, that’s something I guess I didn’t really get a good grasp on from reading on IMDB. It just said that they were stuck there for a certain amount of time. So, and there was a lot of action and a lot of thrill going on. So, it was kind of scary. I’m not sure what happened.

Derek:  Sounds like it might be kind of a psychological movie.

Steph:  It does. It sounds like a psychological thriller action-packed film.

Derek:  Sounds like it’d be pretty interesting. I like those actors at least.

Steph:  I know. Yeah. They’re pretty popular. So. Well, maybe we can go see it someday.

Derek:  All right.

Steph:  All right.

IMDB is my new favorite website. There, you can find out about almost any movie you can think of. It doesn’t matter if it was made in Hollywood or Timbuktu, it’ll be there. Another great thing is that when you’re totally stumped about a certain movie your favorite actor was in, you can look up all of the movies they were in. Cool, huh?
