    Thanks, that was helpful.

    Are these correct?
    1. This is a featured model.

    2. This is a feature model. (Is this wrong? Because 'feature' is an adjective? So it is supposed to be 'featured'?)

    3. This is a feature picture. (So this is incorrect right?)
    4. This is a featured picture.

    5. I hope they keep him locked up forever.
    6. I hope they keep him lock up forever. (Is this a to-be sentence? If so, how? So 'lock' is wrong?)

    3. This is a feature picture. (Adjective) OK
    => This picture is the feature (i.e., the main movie. Noun)

    4. This is a featured picture.(Adjective) OK
    => This picture is featured. (i.e., shown as the main movie. Adjective)

    5. I hope they keep him locked up forever. OK
    => He is locked up.
    6. I hope they keep him lock up forever. (Not OK)
    => *He is lock up.

    I don't really see the differen in meaning. Do they mean the same thing? If so, what's the point of making it a noun or an adjective?

    It's a feature movie.
    => It describes the kind of movie: It's the main movie.

    It's a featured movie.
    => It describes the movie as having already undergone a process: It has been the main movie before.)

    Thank you very much.

    Is it okay to say this:
    1. Thanks very much.

    2. Thank you very much.
    What do #1 and #2 mean?

    So it means it has been the main movie before and it is still the main movie?

    Or does it mean:

    So it means it has been the main movie before and it is still the main movie again?

    And also, it's being featured.
