英语电影有利于让学习者掌握标准的、口语化的英语的表达。英语电影可以让英语学习者有身临其境的感觉，通过课堂上老师进一步的点评和强调，学习者就会很快地习得。通常来说，要表示某件事物很好，我们常用的表达是：“It’s very good.”但是通过观看很大量的英文电影，我们掌握到他们常用“perfect”来表示做的非常好。这种表达既简单又明确，从而达到了很好地表情达意的效果。对于英语学习者来说，在声像并茂的情况下，注意力比较集中，就更容易地记住电影中出现的口语表达，从而使这一学习过程变得生动而高效。
I thought I was going back to Vietnam， but instead they decided the best way for me to fight the communists was to play ping-pong. So I was in the special services, traveling around the country, cheering up those entire wounded veterans and showing how to play ping-pong.’中的“veterans”一词是生词，有些同学是这样猜词义的;首先结合当时的历史背景，得知从越南战争中归来的人又是wounded，所以大意应该是伤兵或者是退伍兵。这样就不仅熟悉了词汇还会锻炼我们的推理能力。
学习一种语言, 不仅要掌握一些语法知识, 培养基本的语言技能, 而且更重要的是要了解所学语言的文化背景。在跨文化交际过程中, 语法错误不是大问题, 但因文化差异而导致的文化冲突却是大多数外国人难以容忍的, 往往会引起误解, 阻碍了交际的顺利进行。电影是一面镜子, 是一个国家和民族的社会文化和生活的最直观、最生动的反映。它包括了社会生活的方方面面, 反映了最突出的社会问题。电影故事本身和演员每一句台词的设置都在展现和传达着各种文化信息, 包括这些国家的生活方式、风俗习惯、价值取向和思维方式等。通过欣赏原版英文电影, 学生可以拓宽视野,更好地了解中西方文化的差异, 加深对英语语言的理解, 从而减少文化冲突。
2012 is a science fiction drama disaster film, directed by Roland Emmerich and released in 2009. The film stars John Cusack, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Amanda Peet, Oliver Platt, Danny Glover, Thandie Newton and Woody Harrelson. It was distributed by Columbia Pictures. Filming began in August 2008 in Vancouver. The film briefly references Mayanism, the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, and the 2012 phenomenon in its portrayal of cataclysmic events unfolding in the year 2012. Because of solar flare bombardment the Earth's core begins heating up at an unprecedented rate, eventually causing crustal displacement. This results in an onslaught of Doomsday event scenarios plunging the world into chaos. Ranging from Los Angeles falling into the Pacific Ocean, the eruption of the Yellowstone National Park caldera, cataclysmic earthquakes wreaking havoc around the globe, and Megatsunamis surging across the Earth. The film centers around an ensemble cast of characters as they narrowly escape multiple catastrophes in an effort to reach ships in the Himalayas, along with scientists and governments of the world who are attempting to save as many lives as they can before the disasters ensue. The film was promoted in a marketing campaign by a fictional organization, the "Institute for Human Continuity"; this entailed a fictitious book written by Jackson Curtis entitled Farewell Atlantis, and streaming media, blog updates and radio broadcasts from the apocalyptic zealot Charlie Frost at his website entitled This Is The End. This campaign was subjected to numerous criticisms, and was regarded as a form of viral marketing. The film received mixed to negative reviews but topped the international box office in its first weekend with $450 million. It ultimately grossed 767,581,683 worldwide becoming Roland Emmerich's second highest grossing film behind Independence Day. Plot 情节 In 2009, American geologist Adrian Helmsley learns from a colleague, Dr. Satnam Tsurtuani, at an underground copper mine in India that neutrinos from a massive solar flare are acting as microwave radiation, causing the temperature of the Earth's core to increase rapidly. Adrian informs White House Chief of Staff Carl Anheuser and US President Thomas Wilson that this will trigger a catastrophic chain of natural disasters. At the G8 summit in 2010, other heads of state and heads of government are made aware of the situation. They begin a massive, secret project intended to ensure the survival of humanity. Approximately 400,000 people are chosen to board a series of ships (called arks) to be constructed in the Himalayas. The majority of tickets aboard the ships are reserved for heads of state, government officials and selected indivials chosen for their skills, while additional funding for the project is raised by selling tickets to the private sector at the price of 1 billion euros per person. In 2012, Jackson Curtis is a writer in Los Angeles who works part-time as a limousine driver for Russian billionaire Yuri Karpov. Jackson's ex-wife Kate and their children Noah and Lilly live with her boyfriend, plastic surgeon and amateur pilot Gordon Silberman. Jackson takes Noah and Lily on a camping trip to Yellowstone National Park, where they meet Charlie Frost, a conspiracy theorist living as a hermit and hosting a radio show from the park. Charlie references a theory that suggests the Mayans predicted the world would come to an end in 2012, and claims he has knowledge and a map of the secret ark project. The family returns home as cracks develop along the San Andreas Fault in California and large earthquakes occur in many places along the West Coast. Jackson grows suspicious and rents a plane to rescue his family. He collects his family and Gordon when the Earth's crust displacement begins and they narrowly escape Los Angeles as it collapses into the Pacific Ocean. As millions die in cataclysmic earthquakes worldwide, the group flies to Yellowstone to retrieve Charlie's map. After retrieving the map, the group narrowly escapes as the Yellowstone Caldera erupts. Charlie, who stayed behind to broadcast the eruption, is killed in the blast. Learning that the arks are in China, the group lands in Las Vegas, where they meet Yuri, his sons, girlfriend Tamara, and pilot Sasha. They join the group and secure an Antonov 225 aircraft, fleeing just as Las Vegas is destroyed. Also bound for the arks aboard Air Force One are Anheuser, Adrian, and First Daughter Laura Wilson. President Wilson chooses to remain in Washington D.C., and is soon killed by a mega tsunami that sends the USS John F. Kennedy crashing into the White House. With the Vice President also dead and the Speaker of the House missing, Anheuser takes over as acting president. Arriving in China in a crash-landing that kills Sasha, the group is spotted by the Chinese People's Liberation Army. Yuri and his sons, possessing tickets, are taken to the ships. The Curtis family, Gordon, and Tamara, who do not have tickets, are picked up by Nima, a Buddhist monk on his way to the arks. They stowaway aboard an ark with the help of Nima's brother Tenzin, who has been working on the ark project. A mega tsunami approaches the site as tens of thousands are still attempting to board the final ark, and a large impact driver becomes lodged between the gears of the ark's hydraulics chamber, preventing a boarding gate from closing and rendering the ship unable to start its engines. In the ensuing chaos, Yuri, Gordon, and Tamara are killed, and the flooded ark is set adrift. Jackson and Noah free the impact driver from the closing mechanism, and the crew regains control of the ark, preventing a fatal collision with Mount Everest. When the global floodwater from the tsunamis eventually recedes, satellite data shows that Africa's elevation rose in relation to sea level, and the Drakensberg mountains in KwaZulu Natal are now the highest on the planet. The scientists are sure that the rest of the land on earth will soon rise above sea level, too. As three arks set sail for the Cape of Good Hope, Jackson reconciles with his family and Adrian starts a relationship with Laura. The movie ends with a view of the Earth from space, showing a vastly different continental landscape. 希望帮到你啦~
007 first episode, big villain Dr John Ure is a Chinese, the film released in 1962, October 5, after 15 days, the Sino-Indian border conflict broke out, four years after the Cultural Revolution in China to further its own closed, mystery The Red Storm from the East in general into the sky, swept the entire world, and those rages hoarsely roaring of the leftist students in fact did not know then what is taking place in China.
The Cultural Revolution in the past 33 years, the eyes of Westerners, China is like? This question has always been stirring up the hearts of all Chinese people, we would like a teenager, with people proud of the achievements, but also has shortcomings can not be ignored, edgy look forward, looking forward to all those who applaud achievements, and everyone put than those deficiencies. We look forward to every large in China's shadow, in every country there should be a big scene to find that a large red banner, and every wild notion of the disaster facing the world when they are looking forward to China's appears. We waited for the past what is it? Is worn the same brutal, such as concentration camps, prisons, the American-style Chinese panda journey to lose weight is a old-style military uniforms and the cold is a wealthy high-rolling gangsters, is simple but good enough to eat people. We are so concerned about the Western media's views on us, so "Reference News" sales of very high; we are so concerned about the lens inside the Hollywood kind of how China is, so we are angry after disappointing that we abuse, we are dismayed.
Like a teenager, wearing shoes with feet kicked street trash, vent plausible but in fact his anger does not matter: all these are just growing pains.
Why care about Hollywood lens, China is like? Do not need to pull before the meteorite hit the Earth in China also launched a nuclear bomb, we know that he can destroy the world; do not need to make Batman jumping in Hong Kong, we know that they have skyscrapers; do not need a foreign director moved, we know that in 2008 in May, Wenchuan, Yingxiu, Beichuan how brilliant shining, it is not bright enough to a long history in the human left bright point. No, in fact, we never need Hollywood's recognition and appreciation of the Western world, we have, "Southern Weekend", with Jane Kwangju, there is Lu Guang, there is × × ×, there is × × × (please feel free to fill in the blank, as long as may be 豆瓣remove the names are in line with conditions), we can find their own problems, we also have the courage to tell these brave fellow.
But - yes - yes, like that young, we hope that the hypertrophy of Chen Chu their uniforms to a sudden jump high 8 cm tall; we hope that the monotony, and everyone can be a bit like hair changes; We hope to become the most attractive peers of that one - especially with the southwest corner compared to that dark and cousin;, of course, our best hope is that those predecessors were able to say: boy, yes!
Even though some of those predecessors extremely wealthy, and some Xuefu five cars, already Laoyanhunhua, keep up with the times, it can not crush the foam.
Young China ah, young Chinese, when I was sitting in the cinema can not escape convention to effortlessly find your shadow pm; when your name appears on the chart, I exclaimed out loud when the heart Anshuang; when I, like all the audience and saw the helicopter was 81 when the star emblem of a knowing smile, we are all a part of you - your young minds, you Guzuoshenchen, your immaturity, your precocious, your energy, you do not perfect, you have momentum, you are not confident, you are courageous.
Hollywood's lens will never have our eyes China, we are in the eyes of China will only appear in the Chinese film lens. Western media's pen will never have a real Chinese history, Chinese history, the record will always use the Chinese characters, which used to exist in the Chinese historian bosom of the bamboo and the ordinary people of the legend, today was sitting in front of the computer for each one You and I tap those Western journalists who miss each and every one laugh a misery, have been our loyal records.
So, no need to expend a tremendous amount to look for "China's Ark", and no need for that one, "Only China can do in a short time" and is good enough for infinity, Liang in "Young China, said that" that China "magnificent full-bodied, Innocent Steps masterpiece", is not it? In those white-skinned decrepit are already Pashanding time, waiting for their only down the road, but climbing is not half of the Young China, raised his head, the front is a long-hoped-300 years of utterly scenery.
Hollywood might as well forget the Chinese bar, improper major opponent, but also not intended to be a savior, even if you do not want the lens in the Russian oligarchs, Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince, India's science geeks be as profiling. How to schele your supporting by your own happy, but the real China, there is the Chinese people when the main character of the movie.
Well, kind-hearted Chinese people have agreed, after the film was a disaster An Men, but also give you the Americans stay in a boat. Oh, to lose weight.

2012 is a 2009 disaster film directed by Roland Emmerich. The film stars John Cusack, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Amanda Peet, Oliver Platt, Danny Glover, Thandie Newton and Woody Harrelson. It was distributed by Columbia Pictures. Filming began in August 2008 in Vancouver.
The film briefly references Mayanism, the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, and the 2012 phenomenon in its portrayal of cataclysmic events unfolding in the year 2012. Because of solar flare bombardment the Earth's core begins heating up at an unprecedented rate, eventually causing crustal displacement. This results in an onslaught of Doomsday event scenarios plunging the world into chaos, ranging from California falling into the Pacific Ocean, the eruption of the Yellowstone National Park caldera, massive earthquakes, and Megatsunami impacts along every coast line on the Earth. The film centers around an ensemble cast of characters as they narrowly escape multiple catastrophes in an effort to reach ships in the Himalayas, along with scientists and governments of the world who are attempting to save as many lives as they can before the disasters ensue.
I think,it will be, for its audiences, one of the most satisfactory films of the year and it really can be called the "mother of all disaster movies".
So what's your choice between being a common person or a hero with people's respects? Most people will choose the latter. But what will be your choice if the cost is laying your lover among the risks? What will it be if the cost is you can never tell the girl, who you love so much, that you love her? The spider man had this contradiction. But finally he still chose the latter, not in order to be a hero, but to make this word peaceful.
I was so moved by the words the Aunt Mary said:
You will never guess what he wants to be, the spider man. He knows the hero when he sees one, too a few characters out there, flying all around out there, saving old girls like me. Lord knows kids like Henry need hero courageous, sacrificing for people, setting examples for all of us. Everybody loves a hero. People enthrone them, cheer them, scream their names and years later they will tell how they stood in the rain for hours just to get a glimpse the one who taught them to hold on to stand longer. I believe there is a hero in all of us. They keep us be honest, give us strength, make us noble, and finally allow us to die with proud. Ever though sometimes we have to initiatively give up the thing we want most, even our dreams. Spider man did that for Henry, so he wants to know where he is gone. He needs him.
The spider man got much from these words, so did I. And what about you? what's the hero lying in you?
The world is ending in a matter of hours, yet justice and humanity don’t penetrate through the brain-shells of politicians. In order to save their own lives, the government officials keep the secret from the rest of human kind and also lets the man whose knowledge saves their lives die. This is the premise of 2012.
But if the viewer is a Tibetan or someone who is aware of the Tibetan culture and the sensitivities of Tibetan issue, one could feel that the justice and humanity are not occurred in the director’s thought either.
There is a scene long enough to mention that takes place in Tibet. In fact the last human beings die there and the new seed of the future human race starts at the neck of Mount Everest, “The People’s Republic of China” the movie calls it. Perhaps what no movie reviewer noticed or saw the importance of mentioning is that the prophetic fictitious story of the movie not only makes a statement that Tibet is completely a part of China, but also it totally misrepresents the core culture of Tibetan people. A Tibetan woman killing animals in Tibet is taboo, it never happened except ring the Cultural Revolution when some women were forced to do so. Women killing chickens in the Chinese market is an everyday event, but a Tibetan woman killing a CHICKEN reflects the director’s cultural ignorance and it makes the movie even more ridiculous.
And in real life ethically speaking, Mr. Emmerich failed to hire Tibetan actors who can speak their own language. All the actors who play Tibetan characters are Chinese very poorly pretending to be Tibetans. Their Tibetan is hundred times worse than Zhang Yi’s memorized English or Leonardo DiCaprio’s Swahili (well I can imagine!).
Avatar is directed by James Cameron.The two main characters are Jake Sully,played by Sam Worthington,and Neytiri,played by Zoe Saldana.
Clones named Avatars are sent to Pandora Planet to persuade people there to leave the planet so that human beings can exploit a rare mineral.Jake is sent there to control his Avatar.
However,he comes across Neytiri and they fall in love with each other.Jake begins to see that nature and the planet should be protected.At last he and the people there work together to defeat human beings and send them back to the earth.
3D technology and the beautiful natural scenery are the two highlights of the film.The message of the film is simple—human beings should protect nature and live in harmony with it.
