Why See Movies?

Postby Inha(905)YangHanGil » Wed Jan 09, 2008 5:06 am

Not everyone watches the movies just to kill their leisure time.

As we watch movies, we can get some kinds of satisfaction replacing our

hope, dream, and ideal which are not easy to complete in the real world.

So people go crazy with the movie characters who speak(act) for their

desire. For me, I am a big fan of spy movie such as James bond movie or

James Borne series. That's why I picked Borne Ultimatum for the best

movie in 2007. I am not sure that I want myself to be some sort of spy,

but I have been so excited whenever I see those kinds of movie. [/code]

I'm Seo Bo-ram.
I have submiited the first week's homework just now.
It is difficulr for me.
But I become curious about other people's opinion !! :idea:


Hi. Bo-ram.

Since you have been curious about other student's opinion regrading the homeworks, I would like to talk about my thought about that.
For me, it's also not easy to get the hw done. However, I feel like my english is somewhat getting better as I complete each homework. I spend lots of time to reply the question, because I have to find Engish words to translate from dictionary whenever I get stuck. Also I have to do double-check my grammer to make sure that my writing makes sense to everyone. However this is how I study for english. So I don't complain too much. :wink:

Born ultimatum was the best movie ever in action genre.

Postby Inha(906)JungChulUng » Wed Jan 09, 2008 9:15 am

I hesitate to choose the best movie i've seen in 2007 between Knocked up and Born ultimatum.
Both of them has different advantage.
Knocked up let me understand American culture and the way to speak english in real situation.
They say cuss and slangs.
I think those are real language in real life.
So it's good time to learn them.
on the other hand, Born ultimatum is the best movie ever.
All actors and actresses were performing really well and they look like they spent lots of money on this film.
James Born moved several countries to find his identity. and there were really good action scene in this movie.
I was impressed with that scenario and how well actors and actresses performed.

Re: Durian

Postby Inha(905)LeeJinHyo » Wed Jan 09, 2008 9:34 am

Yes~!!I have seen a durian and eaten it.

When I was going to Indonesia 1 years ago, I have experienced it.

Have you ever heard a "Queen of fruits"?

Durian is called a Queen of fruits.

So, I did wonder if it is delicious.

But I think "Is it delicious?" at first time.

However, it have a addiction.

I had been falling into durian addiction little by little.

Now, I confidently say "It is a very delicious~!! Would you try it?"

I miss durian.(It is expensive in Korea)

I also saw it a couple of years ago for sale at LG Department Store in Jungdong, but it was really expensive as an import. What are some other foods you would never try? Why not? :)

my best movie

Postby Inha(905)ChoiInSup » Wed Jan 09, 2008 2:58 pm

I enjoy watching movie very much. I used to go to the movies once a week.

Among the movies I have seen last year, my favorite movie is "Transformer".

What I like about that movie is there are many robots in it. When I was young,

I was very fond of playing with robots. The movie "Transformer" made me feel younger and innocent.

I hope "Transformer 2" will be released in the future.

Sorry, I'm late.

Because since 10:30PM I have tried to enter this site, but I can't.

The site was not worked in my computer.

Last year, I saw "The Bourne Ultimatum".

It was the end of "Bourne's series".

In my opinion, it is best movie.

In contrast to "007", "The Bourne Ultimatum" is more reality.

And the story of this movie is very interesting.

I think children should not be encouraged to see violence movies.
I know a young boy who is about age 7.
What he always saw everyday was very violence movies.
Because he keep seeing those violence scenes, he had some mental problems
and he couldn't not distinguish between virtual situation and reality.
He always tried to hit people if they didn't do what he wanted them to do.
He is now in the hopital to cure his sicknesses.
That happened because he kept seeing violence movies and his parents
didn't stop him to watch him. A growing children learn faster and quicker than
an adult. And he didn't know that violence is that bad because what he had seen
was all violence movies and people inside them.
It could affect badly on children. Therefore, I think children should not be
eucouraged to see violence movies.

Re: Durian

Postby rozi » Tue Mar 23, 2010 3:46 pm

rozi'] Hi, I am from Malaysia. It's nice to know that you like durian. Most of foreigners do not like it because its strong smell and taste "very sweet". It is an acquired taste. Before, durian was a seasonal fruit but now you can eat durian throughout the year. Thanks to today's technology. Personally, I am not a durain mania like some peopleI know. People with high blood pressure problem or diabetes is not advise to eat a lot of durian because of its characteristics known as 'hot' fruit and high level of sugar content.

Let me know if you are planning to visit Malaysia. I can let you know the best time to come to eat durian.

Hi, I'm Rosario, I have to say that movies it's one of my most favorite past time. I'm very picky which movie I'll see. To be seated for two hour, and watched a bad movie I feel it's a waist of time. I rather to stay at home and watch some T.V. look for something that makes me laugh. I think that laugh is like a medicine it makes us happy, one can forget about something bad that might happened. I belong a website that it's call flixster, it all about movies and actors. If you join and you like movies and actors you have no idea how many hours you will spend doing it.

I do recommend to all of you to try it out and you will see how interesting, and fun its. They have quizzes, and what have you. You will have to join and see. Most people do not show their face, instead they choose one of their favorite actor and he or she uses as their picture. This it's not a Website to date, you can meet people, but they are from all over. I can talk and talk about it because when I was very young my dream was to be an actress, that is why I love so much flixster.
