Gratuitous Llama Netflix Movie Review

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000)

Yes, I finally got around to seeing this movie. And I can well understand what all the fuss was about - it's beautifully done. And I'd like to get a look at that Wudan manual myself - it'd make the constant slog up and down the stairs a lot easier.

The only downside I experienced was that early on I heard somebody say something in Mandarin that I'd swear I had heard one of the crew of the Serenity use. As a result, I watched the rest of the movie with one ear half-cocked to see if I could pick up anything else. A bit distracting.

Maybe it was Mandarin for "Shiny"?

Most of the actors were Cantonese and spoke horrible Mandarin. You probably heard someone saying 'Crap! I can't remember my lines' in Cantonese. I can believe that they'd say that on Sereniyty, too.
