Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon  
While the rest of the world busily prepared themselves to watch men run into each other and fight over a piece of pigskin, I let the Dragon Lady talk me into watching a movie. A foriegn movie with actual subtitles. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
It was beautiful. Awesome. Amazing. I loved the special effects. The fight scenes were very dramatic and fast.
But for two hours, it seemed like twenty. Maybe I just don't handle chinese movies well, but...it seemed like it would never end. Kinda like Titanic, except at least then you knew the boat would eventually sink. With this movie, you were never sure which character would kill the other and then kill themself. (Although I had an inkling it would be the Governor's daughter...)
The Dragon Lady insists that it is important for me to expose myself and absorb the Chinese culture. Honestly, though, I could've stayed home and watched channel eight for six hours and seen the same story with poorer effects.
Anyway, go and see it. Asian pride and all that.
