OK. Only, I haven't seen a movie that would be worth watching in a cinema for over 20 years. I hate going to the cinema. I like my couch!

"Despicable Me" was good.

Not small screen, as such. It's a small theatre, so not a very big screen. Like a little art-house theatre back home. And unfortunately not a great print, and the sound quality is fairly poor. It is comfortable though, and I still definitely felt the experience of a full cinema rather than home cinema.
I have news. Good news from Notting Hill. The consignment of white gold for Mr Anderson has arrived.

Oh, it's because my friends were asking me if I could buy the tickets ASAP and I said I would probably see the English version, but if it is too small a screen maybe it is better to see the Mandarin, meipanfa.

If your Chinese reading skills are OK, then I would definitely go for the standard Chinese screening. The English one is flawed sound-wise, but the theater itself is very, very nice. Like I wrote, never sat so comfortable ever before :) Picture is OK, too, and big enough for me to be truly enjoyable and definitely preferable over my home cinema projector. Even from 5th row - second from the back that is ;-)

As we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
We will remember them

I saw Part II last night. zyzzx was there too. Only about 10 people in the cinema. But tonight there should be more people there.

I think they could have put more money into the special effects, which were a little cheesy. But they didn't detract from the film. There seemed to be a bad splice at a critical moment (bridge confrontation scene) which made for some confusion. Otherwise, wow.

Part II was shorter than I expected.

Chris, are you interested in seeing part II again?
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”
