PART A_2

I can’t believe you made me see that horrible movie. I should’ve watched “The Stallions”, instead.
It’s not that bad. The story just happened to be predictable. Still, the fight scenes were good. Also, Alexander Zala played a supporting role.

As expected, he was amazing. He was the only reason why I was able to finish the movie we watched. The only sad part is his acting skills were underestimated this time.
True. He is my favorite actor, you know. I’ve been a big fan of his movies ever since and he has received lots of awards for his acting skills. He also met his wife Emilia Turner in one of his movies.

Emilia Turner is his wife? Wow! I didn’t know that. They were always such a great pair in their movies. Anyway, do you want to watch their movies with my friends after our family dinner?
Sure. I’ll buy snacks for our movie night later.
