内容摘要:Neil: Hello. I’m Neil. In this programme, we're going to talk about movies. What kind of movies do you like, Feifei?Feifei: I love...

Neil: Hello. I’m Neil. In this programme, we're going to talk about movies. What kind of movies do you like, Feifei?

Feifei: I love romcoms, Neil! 我喜欢看 “Romcom 浪漫爱情片”。Romcom 是个名词,它是由单词 romantic comedy 组成的一个合成词。What about you, Neil, what sort of movies do you like the most?

Neil: Well, I can’t resist a ‘whodunnit’. 'Whodunnit' is short for ‘who has done it’. The point of these films is for the audience to try to guess who committed a serious crime – usually murder.

Feifei: Ah, you like detective movies! 单词 whodunnit 也是个名词,它是短语 “who has done it” 的缩写,意思是“凶杀悬疑片”。侦探在推理过程中就会用 “who has done it” 作为线索引子。说到这儿,让我想起了神探福尔摩斯。

Neil: Yes, ‘romcom’ and ‘whodunnit’ are today’s expressions in Authentic Real English. And ... there’s one more. Now, see if you can guess: (sounding like a robot) Hello. I’m a robot sent from the future to prevent war and destruction!

Feifei: A sci-fi movie! Sci-fi 是 science fiction 的缩写,就是我们熟知的“科幻片”。I love science fiction too. But sometimes it’s scary!

Neil: (sounding like a robot) Well, there's no need to be scared … I can’t keep doing that… There’s no need to be scared of BBC Learning English because we explain everything to you so clearly. Let's hear some examples of today’s three movie-related expressions.

Examples

    My favourite sci-fi movie is Star Wars. I can’t wait for the next film in the series!

    I’m catching a movie with my friends after work. We’re going to watch the latest romcom.
    Alfred Hitchcock was the master of the whodunnit. Nobody makes better films in that genre than he did!

Feifei: That’s it! 我去买爆米花!

Neil: And I’m going to buy some drinks!

Feifei: Let’s catch a movie! A sci-fi?

Neil: (sounding like a robot) Yes, indeed! We are going to catch a movie… I am a robot who came from the future to catch a movie with you, Feifei…

Feifei: 瞧你这演技,能获奥斯卡奖了!Let’s go! Bye!

Neil: See you soon.
