Hi,

Which one is the most natural?


"We can talk when the movie is over"
"We can talk when the movie is finished"
"We can talk when the movie has ended"



Thanks

    I would say, "over". All sound correct to me. (And all require a period at the end.)

    As a BE speaker I would say "has finished". Of the alternatives you've suggested, "is over" would work, but "is finished" sounds as if you're in the middle of making it.
