R: Ooh, the acting could be horrendous. Trying to think of another film where the acting was horrendous. Well, that's quite subjective, isn't it? Although the acting in the mockbuster is always horrendous. Honestly. They're just the worst kinds of movies ever.
M: And if you don't like a film, you can say like, oh, I had to sit through this film at the cinema. So the last time I went to the cinema, I had to sit through this horrible action film. So you just sit through it, you watch it to the end, but you don't like it. If you're going to twist my arm is an idiom. So twist my arm, just like twist, twist my arm. Like, take and kind of break my arm.
R: If you're going to force me.
M: Yeah, if you are going to force me if you want to make me do things I don't want to do. So if you're going to twist my arm, I'd say that... Like this. Yeah? If you twist my arm, I will go to the movies, for example, but I don't want to go to the movies. So yeah. To get more out of something or to get more out of doing something, rather than going to the cinema, you can get more out of going for a walk. Or you can get more out of watching TV at home, for example. And what's Barbenheimer?
R: It is the portmanteau. Barbie and Oppenheimer were released at the same time, these two films are about completely different things. But people combined them together. And it made this cultural meme of Barbenheimer, where people would go and see one film and then go and see the other one. It was just a really weird social phenomenon to watch unfold from a distance. I have seen neither of these films, so I can't really comment on the experience of Barbenheimer. But it was something that happened.
M: Dear listener, if you want to be in the trend, you have to watch the Barbie movie, you have to sit through it, if you don't like the Barbie thing, and you have to watch Oppenheimer and tell us in the comment section, did you enjoy the movies? What do you think of them, if you have watched them? So yeah. You can also say that I prefer going to the cinema to watch the latest movies like the newest films. And also I enjoy big screens, for example, I enjoy going to the cinema with like 12 screens, so I can watch five films at the same time. Yeah? You can also say that I enjoy the activities that cinema theatre provides. It's about the whole experience, you go to watch a movie, then after that, you stay you eat more popcorn, you do this bowling thing, you go to a bar and everything is in one place. And then you go to see another film. Yeah, it's kind of this activity, the experience. And now movie theatres want to provide this experience, like a range of activities, so a film, food, some more activities like bowling, I don't know, some... What else do we have at the movie theatres?
R: Axe throwing?
R: Yes, you can, you can... There's axe throwing. I mean, I have only done this once in my life, but I'm sure there was a cinema nearby.
M: Axe? Do you throw an axe?
R: Yes. Have you never seen this?
M: Oh, I saw this in some... But not at the cinema halls.
R: Oh, wow. I'm gonna have to take pictures next time I do it.
