Martin: What did you think of that movie?
Joanna: It was okay, but I’m not really into big-budget movies with a lot of special effects and big-name stars.
Martin: Oh, you’re a film snob. I bet you only watch indie films made on a shoestring budget with low production values.
Joanna: No, that’s not true. I just don’t like crowd-pleasers that are predictable. I like movies that stretch the imagination and have some artistic value.
Martin: You mean you like those weird movies with no plot and a lot of strange characters. They’re artsy, but leave you totally confused.
Joanna: I don’t mind some ambiguity, if that’s what you mean.
Martin: Well, I’m going to see the new Spiderboy movie next week. I don’t suppose you want to come?
Joanna: Spiderboy? I’ve been looking forward to seeing that movie.
Martin: But it’s a big-budget blockbuster.
Joanna: I can’t watch artsy films all the time. Variety is the spice of life, don’t you think?
