Pirates of Caribean: On Stranger Tides

Posted on: October 9, 2011

在家看的,没有字幕,发现自己这么多年了,居然还是好多都听不懂。我还觉得自己已经很厉害了,大多数情况下比大多数人都听得懂的多的多的多的多。想起至少两个男生跟我说过,他们不去电影院看电影,因为听不懂。想想还是应该同情他们啊原来:) 听得懂的多能说的多也是有坏处的,比方说在单位人家就会真的把你当对手看待,当对手处理。但是真的唇枪舌剑起来的时候,脑子和嘴还是要比人家慢一点,所以吃亏。听不懂的其实根本不明白what is going on,别人说他们并不能明白其中的微妙之处,其中的指桑骂槐,其中的暗度陈仓,所以只有埋头写埋头debug而已,在中国人自己的世界里面构筑另外的hierarchy,和洋人的世界几乎没有交集。哎我又扯远了,打住。

美人鱼们印象非常深刻,都好美,尤其是我喜欢的超模gemma ward,看她在银幕上出现好开心。另外的印象,就是正好给了我一个机会研究一下帆船的构造啦,什么地方叫什么啦。Patrick O’brian的naval adventures已经看了十五本了,还是搞不明白哪里是quarterdeck, 哪里是forecastle, 哪里是fore and aft, 什么是lee to。看电影,就可以大胆的猜测,那个quarterdeck大概就是二层楼的那个地方。

看完电影研究了一下,发现电影里的那艘帆船,就是当年我们看的russell crowe演的那个master and commander: the far side of the world的电影里面的surprise。所以和patrick o’brian也是有关系的!就可以当作dear Surprise来看的!

另外印象非常深的,那时的人好能做motivational speech啊,geoffrey rush一句aren’t you king’s man? 荡气回肠。

哎其实我倒是很好奇一般美国人是啥都能听懂吗?我觉得英语比较奇特的是不想中文那样一个词两三个字,就算词是新的,根据那俩字也可以猜猜。英文的词很难光靠prefix之类的猜。
