After you watch a movie, do you say "It WAS a good movie" or "It IS a good movie" in Japanese?

In English I tend to say "It WAS a good movie", in past tense because I WATCHED the movie, but technically the movie still IS good, and I saw a sentence with IS instead of WAS in Japanese. So in Japanese is there a tendency to describe the movie based on the tense of the movie itself, that is the movie still IS good?
