Down In Front!
My parents sent me a copy of Hero, but with English subtitles. I first heard about this film when I went home for my birthday, in March. I was pretty blown away by it, although I had to rely on them to translate the parts I couldn’t figure out for myself. This thing made Crouching Tiger look like a kid’s show.
Unfortunately, this version they sent me is just a ripped copy… from some guy’s camcorder set up inside a theater. The sound is shit; the video is crap; you can occasionally hear someone coughing in the background. But it’s still neat to see, and I’ll most likely watch it. I need to search around for a real, actual DVD copy. Really amazing scenery and from what little I saw… quite breathtaking.
