As we use so before adjective like "the movie is so interesting," but can I say negative way like "the movie is not so interesting" means I want to say someone the movie not good?

  • Yes, you can say that. For future questions, you may prefer to ask on our sister site, English Language Learners, which is dedicated to helping people learn English as a foreign language. Despite its name, this site is for more academic questions of English than practical ones. – Dan Bron Jan 2 '17 at 19:22
