I’m doing a series of touching death scenes, and whether the character comes back from the dead (gets revived) is irrelevant, because I really love how these death scenes were filmed! Here’s the first one, Shui Ruohan
One of my favorite scenes in the entire series, a speech about chivalry. For this recap, it would be impossible to get the full meaning across without spoiling a big part of the story, so please read if you don't mind being a little spoiled.
Author: Yueer 8/19/00 - Through the entire series, WeiWei's extraordinary effort, her tiredness, her sincerity, and her utmost fortitude, were visible. Just her fortitude and her effort were enough to touch people's heart...
So, I watched this yesterday before work, so bear with me here. Fox of Shaolin is trying to kill herself and manipulate the situation to make it miserable for Jianping.
Everyone tells Jianping that she should just be who she wants to be, and that people could see through her straight away. Therefore, Jianping wants to be more calculative, which would also fail greatly!
There are some pretty cool moments in this episode and I was reminded that Ruohan was beholden to that fucking Eunuch. We get a reminder this episode! Also more of Yinniang's backstory with why she's got a hate for the Lu family.
Fox of Shaolin is all deep cover. This pic is just cuz....really. Do I need a reason? Oh yeah, they give Xiaolong a day of being secular. Wuma and Yinniang frollocking!
Plot is continuing to thicken as the shifty quest to get the key from the Shaolin continues and Jianping is hiding out from the Emperor. Her dad is still in custody at East Bank, under the torturous attention of that fucking eunuch and the developing saga that is the relationship between Wuma and Nightsoil Lady reaches a new level.
As I watched and finished the Adventure of the Swordgirl (Treasure Venture), I found myself inspired by many philosophies of the film. Here are just some pearls that I’ve found and I’d like to share with everyone.
I actually watched this yesterday, but then friends came over and we got drunk.
I kinda liked how I did the last post for Drunken Kung Fu, so I'm going to do the same thing for this Treasure Venture. Captioned Screencaps a Go-Go, baby!
The entire gang of rowdies are now at the Shaolin Temple, and it seems that Ruohan and the monks are the only ones still in the dark about Jianping actually being a woman, so her and Ruohan get roomed together.
Jianping has gotta wave off on marrying the Emperor's daughter, which puzzles him greatly...
So, Jianping couldn't bullshit her way out of quizzing on things she's supposed to be studying from her dad...
Shit is seriously heating up! Gexiao and Sanniang have the Emperor still, Hai, Hu, and Xiaomei are in prison, where Wuqiu beats Hu mercilessly and then has Xiaomei heal him so he can beat him some more.
Because baka Rapidshare keeps botching my Yi Zhi Mei downloads, I got the second episode of Treasure Venture instead. No big whup, really...it's a fun series so far!
Curious, I decided to go ahead and download the first episodes from each series and watch them. I'm still scratching my head over how neither one got a single vote.
Treasure Venture is an adventure series that combines a great story, characters, comedy, fighting/action and romance. It is one of the best examples of a show that has everything.
I have never got so much fun in a drama. When I started to act in "Swordgirl", I didn't know it would bring so much fun! The action of Xiao-dong Cheng and the technique of Yan-ping Zhu were very special.
In most ancient series, to express love relationship is always the hardest part due to the old time custom of the difference between men and women in that era. Therefore, most directors would concentrate on martial arts, war between good and bad, etc.
I wanted to write this to remember my first experience in subbing a series on my own. Seriously this has been one of the hardest translations I've done.
