    1) 끝나다 is "Passive" and 끝내다 is "Active". I will use class(수업) as an example.
    수업이 끝나다: class has finished, when you're a student, class will finish by itself, you can't end the class.
    수업을 끝내다: You(or specified subject) finished the class.

    2) 보다: to see, a simple verb
    보러 가다: go to see a movie

    3)무슨 : Asking about something or some object when you don't have any knowledge of it
    어떤: asking about the specific stuff, characteristics.

    무슨 영화에요?: What movie is it? (e.g. What is the name of the movie?)
    어떤 영화에요?: (Specifically) What kind/type of movie is it?
