News and Updates
Here's the scoop. I had a rough morning with a midterm and all (yes, I'm still on Midterms, finals don't come for another month.) So tonight, I thought I'd do something to just chill out. Sleep was out of the question once my roommate arrived, and I felt like watching a movie. But I didn't feel like shoving out five bucks for a rental (not to mention the walk to and from the nearest Blockbuster) So instead, I logged onto a video website, and randomly searched Jackie Chan. They had a bunch of clips from his various movies, and sometimes even the whole movie itself. It's split into ten minute portions or so, and the quality is not exceptional. But, hey, it's free.
Plus, here's something I do with foreign films. I don't use the English dub, where there are voice overs for all the characters in English. I listen to the film in its original language, and use English subtitles instead. I don't know why, but it makes the sound flow a lot better, plus I find it easier to understand quick words by reading it rather than hearing it blurted out rapidly. Just something I do. So I watched the movie clips in Chinese with English subtitles. There were English voice overs, but I skipped those.
With that said, I've wasted the last five or so hours watching all three Police Story (at least, I think that's the English name) movies in ten minute portions on an unnameable video hosting site. I don't know if it's legal or not, but these movies came out before I was born, so whatever.
And I've seen enough martial arts to satisfy me. yeah.
