老生常谈的雅思口语电影话题聊点什么新花样?

2017-09-06编辑: Eileen来自: 西安环球教育

  雅思话题part 2里有一个十年如一日百考不厌的topic,那就是describe a movie you watched.也许考官早已听烦了各种经典电影的描述,不如聊点新上映的大片(blockbuster on new release)吧~~比如速度与激情8 " The Fate of the Furious".

  先来看看话题需要的四个问题都要来说点什么。

  what the movie was

  when did you watch it

  who you watched the movie with

  what the movie talked about

  and explain why you think this movie was so interesting

  除去那些背景介绍(4w)的问题,重点在于电影讲了什么以及你喜欢的原因。ok, 让我们看看细节处都能聊点什么吸引考官的眼球。

  速8最大的亮点就是三个光头一台戏。关于这次的演员阵容,除了我们熟悉的巨石强森和范迪塞尔,还有就是再次回归的"郭达"。

  The highlight of this movie is about the endearing cast of Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel, who have been so familiar in the previous series. The co-star Jason Statham was also the eye-catching role in the movie.

  家庭是电影里想表达的最重要的词。范迪塞尔的各种打破常规的角色表演还要配合对已故保罗沃克的角色需要,所有这些因素使得整个故事的一个巨大挑战。这次电影的名称也是对保罗沃克的一种纪念,走点感情悲戚的风格。

  Family is the most important word in it.Both the old cars and Dom's unsteadiness set up a movie that clearly still needs to contend with Mr. Walker's death even as it delivers the goods.All these factors make a great challenge for the whole story. The new movie's title "The Fate of the Furious"seems like the lingering existential crisis created by Mr. Walker's death, as do the tears that fall in the story.

  速激情节一向都是赛车和家庭为主线,这部突然一改风格主角黑化了,上部的大反派郭达突然加入帮助强森和唐老大曾经的团队,这为整个电影营造的一个悬疑吊起大家的胃口(事实上我并不认为编剧写了一个好本子)。

  As ever the story always focuses on the car racing and family, Dom just becomes a "bad guy" in this time to abandon his team . The villain last time, Jason begins to join the team and assists Hobb to deal with the betraying of Dom that create a suspense to arouse people's appetite. Actually I'm not really into the story about it.

  不过说实话,速激系列的影评总是有贬有褒,也许速8并没有之前几部成功,但是它的票房从来不是问题,就算8的剧情简单,它也是个成功的爆米花电影,因为画面超火爆--车和肌肉。

  overall, the film seems to lack the punch of some of its predecessors. then again, not every Fast movie has done well with critics, it's never hurt at the box office, which is keeping in a huge hit. Even though we call this time lame in the story, it is still a successful popcorn movie with spectacular scene in every plot, like the cars and hunks make the thrill-seeking effect for the movie.

  速8里还有很多画面超带感,比如观众的视觉享受包括古巴的异域风情。还有就是最吸引人眼球的各种车以及特效,都让人觉得电影票值了,主角的整个团队各色人群在电影中制造出来的各种大场面让整个剧情变的生动。

  Fate of the Furious is one big fan-service buffet that begins with the exotic flavors of Cuba. The action scenes are clearly very expensive, last as long as possible to get their money worth out of the extravagant stunt sequences. Dom's team, goes from the grease-monkey to pistol gripping(各种人群), can't let the sleeping dog die with grimmer subplot.

  速8最大看点就是它里面的各种车,而且这部里面的场面更大宏大,包括各类坦克,豪车,甚至潜水艇的破冰场景等等。比如范迪塞尔和女朋友在哈瓦那出现的古董车和摩托艇的场景,或者纽约场景的车从楼上飞下来的场景就跟007电影一样。所有这些大场面包括超大近镜头,撞车场景,逼真声效,燃烧场景都使我特别兴奋。

  This is as good a segue as any to touch on Fate of the Furious to shoot the crazy sequences. The movie makes with bigger, more massive spectacles. driving tanks, skydiving cars, submarine chases and ice-over surface,etc. For instance,Dom and Letty are hanging out in the new Havana, which in this case means chatting in Spanish and English while checking out a vintage car with a boat motor. In New York, cars swan-dive off buildings outfitted with Bond-like gizmo.Zoom, crash, repeat with squealing, burning and flaming tiers--all make the movie in a great image without a yawn for me.
