I first noticed this movie because of the news that the movie was banned from being shown in movie theaters. After it was finally released, I was exposed to a few times mentioning in my circle of friends. At the very beginning, I decided to watch it simply because I was attracted by the movie posters and I was enormously interested in the story the movie is trying to tell. What happened during that special period of time was a total blank in my mind, though I had learned ...

The day I watched Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was when the movie 'Dangal' started being shown in the mainland of China. If I had known it was such a great movie, I would go to watch this instead. The Hollywood blockbuster is lame on many levels compared with this Indian movie. People on social networking websites started lavishing praise on this movie as soon as it was shown in cinemas. I finally got to watch this well-applauded movie today. I knew a bit of t ...

One of my friends had watched this movie three times cause he was so in love with it while some others had to leave during the middle of the screening as they simply didn't feel a thing. The movie was on in China on Valentine's Day which to a certain extent subtly suggested that this would be a beautifully touching love story suitable for couples. With this in mind and the awards guaranteed quality, people held high expectations for this. While things didn't quite tur ...

When nearly everybody on my virtual circle of friends was talking about this movie, I anticipated that it would be on in the mainland of China. But it didn't. Still, I got to see it the other day online. The storyline is simple and even a bit cliche in my very personal opinion. It reminded me of the French hit movie "Intouchables". But other than that, I love every bit of the movie: the music, the scene, the leading actor and actress. I particularly love the topic the ...

Alone, I went to see this movie today recommended a few times by my students some of whom had seen it more than one time. This is also said to be one of the best movies in 2016. People say it's a movie suitable for couples; others say many are moved to tears when watching it. I enjoyed it thoroughly even though I am single and I didn't even have the slightest idea of wanting to cry. Probably because I have never been in a sensational or phenomenal relationship. ...

Share Suddenly Seventeen
2016-12-16 08:54
I watched the movie-Suddenly Seventeen with a friend last night. On many levels, the movie outdoes its many counterparts produced in China. The scriptwriter did an excellent job in grasping the trend of mainstream culture-the rising feminism in China. Therefore no wonder many people females in particular find it pretty easy for them to relate to the story in the movie. Liang Xia, the leading actress, already 28, has given up furthering her education abroad a ...

I am pretty sure I saw this movie several years ago. I was then probably too innocent to be touched and to have strong feelings deep down invoked by it. About a week ago, I came across the beautiful lines from this movie when I was skimming what was in on my microblog. Anyway, I watched it again last night. First of all, I enjoyed the music thoroughly, the melody of piano in particular. I don't know why. Somehow the music itself to me was very healing. Of course, I ...

This is an article partly based on the discussion with my student---Krystal. Some opinions are entirely subjective. The latest movie I watched is X-Men: Apocalypse. I liked the beginning, with the high-definition scenes and mysterious ambiance. However, I grew increasingly disappointed with the plot developing. This probably has something to do with me not seeing the previous X-mens or with me disliking fantasy. Anyway, the moment I walked out of the movie theater, I could barel ...

The first time I knew this movie was a post from my friend in Wechat. She believed that Leonard should be able to finally win a Oscar by his stunning performance in this movie. And he did win it. Then I thought I should spare some time to watch it. But I soon totally forgot that as I got myself drowned in all sorts of triviality. However , it was soon mentioned by more people in my circle of virtual friends . I suppose it was because it just g ...

    It is actually emotionally and mentally healthy to have nursing homes for old people in residential areas, and makes it easy for families to visit their elderly relations regularly.
    Death happens to everyone and it is stupid to hide it away. Death is not bad luck - it will happen to you and me.
    In some European countries there are homes for the elderly next to kindergartens, and everyone benefits from interacting with each other on a daily basis.
    The elderly benefit from interacting with children and keeps them mentally alert, whereas the young learn about death as a normal part of life.

    For a country that supposedly 'respects' their elders, China has a very superstitious attitude to death and dying.
    where i am from, the elderly are allowed and supported by family and state) to be independent and in their own homes.
    Where medical treatment is needed, residential homes allow the elderly appropriate facilities in towns and cities while their families can visit easily and local residents can interact with them.
    In addition, local communities benefit from being able to interact with these residents and the residents can still be part of a local community, not hidden away as something to be ashamed of or 'taboo'.

    Shame on China for such medieval superstitious attitudes regarding death.
    Does China 'respect' the elderly so much that they should be hidden away from people's lives?

    Do you want to be isolated and hidden away when you are old and your family don't want to or can't visit you?
