3 In pairs. Practise saying the adjectives from exercises 1 and 2. Which have two or more syllables? Which syllable is stressed?

disappointing = dis + a + ppoin + ting


best Bond, but Pierce Brosnan is terrific, too! Robert Carlyle is a bit disappointing as the bad guy, though.

Best bit? The scene at the beginning when Pierce Brosnan jumps out of the window in Bilbao. Very exciting.

Why? = Why did you go to see the film?

Well? = Well, what do you think of the film?

Best bit? = What was the best part?

Brosnan's nice, and I really like Sophie Marccau — she's a brilliant baddie.

Best bit'? The scene when Brosnan and Marceau are skiing in the mountains.

It's quite shocking when Bond kills a woman -- he's usually such a gentleman!

Best bit'? The chase with the speed boats in the Thames. Bond's boat is really cool.

2 Cover the texts. Ask each other questions, and complete the rest of th table.

B What does Adam like in the film?
