Let's makeup a movie named "XYZ". Let's say a friend of mine said, "I watched a movie named "XYZ" last night. It was really good. Did you watch it before?". I answered, "Yes, I did"; and he asked, "What do you think about it?". As an answer to this question, can I say these interchangeably? Would they have the same exact meaning?

  • "I think it is a good movie. John's death was its best part."

  • "I think it is a good movie. John's death was the best part of it."

What I mean is that the death of the character named John was the best part of the movie.

Yes. Both of your options have the same meaning here. You could even just say,

I think it is a good movie. John's death was the best part.

The "of it" part of your second bullet is implied in my option above.
