  寒假档又是各种新片云集的时段,雅思口语也来凑个热闹,让大家聊聊喜欢的电影。这个万年不变的雅思话题大家都不陌生了,如果之前早有准备,就按照你最熟悉的套路来,如果就想与时俱进一下,偏要说还在上映的电影,咱们就可以看看下面的素材:

  The other day, I watched a movie named Passengers, which is an American science fiction and adventure film. The story is set in the future when people could choose to move to other planet and live a new life there. This is how it works, after passengers board the spaceship, they would enter hibernation and sleep in a specially designed pod that would automatically wake them up after 120 years when they arrive at the new planet. However, there’s something wrong with the system, and one of the passengers wakes up 90 year early, which is a disaster ‘cause there’s no way for him to re-enter hibernation, which means he will likely grow old and die before the ship reaches their new home. And the rest of the movie is all about the choices he makes and efforts he makes to save everyone on the ship, including the woman he loves, who by the way is awake because of him. Well, it’s such a complex story, so it’s hard for me to tell it in just two minutes, I’ve already left out some of the plot.

  Anyway, it’s more than just a science-fiction or an ordinary love story, I mean, it’s one of those stories that really grab me and get me thinking, what would I do if I were in that situation, you know, stuck in a sinking spaceship, or would I choose to board the ship in the first place. So you see, it’s thought provoking and it’s fair to say, it’s the best film I’ve seen recently.

  虽然该影片的review褒贬不一,有影评人质疑该片的价值观不正,对“幸福”的定义过于简单粗暴,也有人笑称该片是太空版的《泰坦尼克》,更有人说整部电影讲的就是“别睡了起来嗨”…… 但无论怎样,我们都得承认作为雅思素材,这绝对是好电影,因为好说呀!复杂的情节以及要用到的绕口的术语,咱们根本不用提,就把故事大意一讲,来段观后感就搞定了,而且这个也可以说成是书呀,同样也是机经里的题目,我们可以说它是page-turner,读起来爱不释手,每翻几页就有新惊喜(I couldn’t put it down, I mean, every 10 pages, something new happens!)。 开头还可以假装一下:I heard there is a movie that is adapted from this book, but I seriously doubt it would be better than or even as fascinating as the book, I mean, every adapted movie so far has been a huge disappointment. Anyway, back to the book. 然后就开始说剧情,最后说观后感,这部分也就是为什么你想再读一遍该书的理由。常见的套话就是:Every time I read it, I get something new and deeper insights. And it even puts my life into perspective. 希望大家用得上哦。
