I’ve been meaning to post about this since my friend forced me to watch it on Netflix a few weeks ago. Watch the trailer below, then go watch the full documentary.
So my roommate (who’s from China) has tickets lined up for a free screening of Beginning of the Great Revival, a star-studded film about the historical events surrounding the formation of China’s Communist Party. Does this make up for not being able to go to China this year? First time in a long time that I’ll be celebrating July 4 in America.
Groupon has AMC Silver Experience tickets for $1 each with a limit of 2 per account. It’s via a special link.
Fill out your shipping information as the tickets are physically mailed to you. When you submit your information there will be no order confirmation, but you can confirm it by clicking “My Groupons” under your account information.
Silver experience tickets cannot be used on new releases through the first two weekends, or 10 days if the movie opens on a Friday.
Ok, since I wrote a post about Asian stuffs, I will write some stuff about
England, no Great Britain, the U.K or whatever it’s called.
First off, everyone should see The King’s Speech. I liked the arsty-fartsy camera visuals, NOT like Gaspar Noe’s movie Irreversible, which was just sickening, literally. The music caught my attention too. It was done by the same guy (Alexandre Desplat) who did other movies like Twilight and Harry Potter. I’m no movie critic and I don’t like to write. So just go see it. It’s good. Perhaps that is why it earned the most oscar nominations this year.
Fun fact: this famous poster features a slogan and the crown of King George VI (of whom the afore mentioned movie is about).
I always see this poster on design sites and it seems to have some historical significance.
I’ll leave with another rather fast-paced video. I love geography and maps, so this piqued my interest when I saw it.
I haven’t posted much on this subject, mainly because I keep much of this to myself, even in person. The only other place I remember where I’ve mentioned anything was on my “100 things about me” page. But as my friends and I watched this movie this weekend, I was reminded how this movie has a special place in my heart. I first watched this last year online on some Chinese site and was determined to buy this movie in the summer. I even paid extra for the DVD version (instead of the cheaper, lower quality, but more popular VCD). If you’re ever looking for a great kungfu movie WITH a good story line, go rent this.
