    Red face It is/was the best move movie I have/had....

    Hi everyone, suppose I am coming out of a cinema hall just after watching a film. Someone asks me, "How was the movie? I reply "Oh! That was a great movie. I have/had never seen a movie like that before." "Have" or "had": Which one should I choose?

    I can also reply "Oh! That was a great movie. It is/was the best movie I have/had ever seen.

    Again the same problem, which one should I choose?

    * I might say 'is' instead of 'was'.
    The question is asked in past tense. Shouldn't I reply in past tense?
