Aww, I was just kidding, of course Grant can stay. Also, I'm pretty sure that Irene Dunne says 'Night' in every film she's in.

It's pretty good so far (30 minutes in), but MY GOD are the subtitles ever fast!!! I have never had a problem keeping up with subtitles before but these ones move at an absolutely blistering pace. At times I can't even get halfway through the sentence before it's on to the next line. It's becoming a problem as far as just making sense of things is concerned. What's more, there is hard to pronounce names and places spoken in almost every line, as if it weren't already hard enough. Also, I'm concentrating so hard on just reading the subtitles before they disappear that I'm missing all the beautiful detail. Heck, I'm getting characters confused (because a few of them look alike).

Ugh, this is tough. I'm getting all lost and have to keep rewinding. I dunno what to do. I'll struggle on I guess because I'm intrigued. :-\

Okay, now it's just getting ridicules.





She's saying her husband has not played the qin in a long time. Then he says he too has not been so "enervated" for a long time. It doesn't even make sense! If her husband has not played the qin in a long time then HE is the one who is "enervated". Why would Mr. Zhu-ge respond that he too has NOT been so "enervated" for a long time? It's the complete opposite, and it suggest that playing the the qin is an enervating experience which is not at all what the scene is really trying to say.

And what in god's name is a subtitlist doing using words like 'enervate' anyways? Who is this hot shot translator? What the heck does 'enervate' even mean exactly? I had to stop and pull out the dictionary to translate the translation! Why not say 'drained' or something. Good grief.

Why are there Chinese symbols above the English subtitles? Do I want to know what version you are watching there?

Qin, I gather, is shorthand or something for guqin. One of these things.

No, probably not. :)

With an English title like Magnet of Doom, it's gotta be good!

Also, color!
